After George Zimmerman called his killing Trayvon Martin part of “God’s plan,’’ Martin’s parents spoke out Thursday.
“I really think that’s ridiculous,’’ Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer. “I wish Trayvon was here to tell his side of the story. I don’t believe that it’s God’s plan for him to kill an innocent teenager.’’
Wednesday night, in his first television interview, Zimmerman told Fox News host Sean Hannity his version of the events of the night of Feb. 26, when he shot the unarmed 17-year-old in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman, 28, has been charged with second-degree murder, but said he does not regret following Martin that night while serving as a neighborhood watch volunteer, nor does he regret having been armed.
