    It has been 1 year, 4 months and 23 days since Trayvon Martin was ripped out of the lives of his parents’ Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman.

    Ms. Fulton and the family’s attorney Ben Crump joined Roland Martin almost a week after the non-guilty verdict to discuss the impact of her son’s death on society, give her feelings about the Zimmerman verdict and she lets us know what needs to be done to make sure something like this doesn’t happen to other families.

    Read the full interview below.

    —–

    ROLAND MARTIN: …You have been doing the rounds of interviews across the country.  It’s been almost a week from the decision.  How do you feel even today?

     SYBRINA FULTON:  Good morning.  I feel energized.  I feel like there’s work to do.  I feel that the people, the supporters, are encouraging me to keep fighting.  So I’m ready to fight.

    ROLAND MARTIN:  Sybrina, I’ve said that Trayvon could serve as this generation’s Emmett Till in terms of being a catalyst for change in terms of moving the next generation to fight social justice.  Your thoughts about that.

     SYBRINA FULTON:  I think it is.  I think we feel connected to, I think other people feel connected to this case and they want to do something.  Sometimes you get to a point where you just can’t take it anymore.  And I think this is the actual case where they just can’t take it anymore.  They just can’t take the injustice they’re seeing in the court systems, with the justice system.  They just can’t take it anymore.  And they want their voices to be heard.  And I will 100% support that.

    ROLAND MARTIN:  When you watch interviews, when you watch folks on television who are, who end up attacking your son, calling him a thug, questioning his upbringing and things along those lines.  Do you tune it out?  Does it make you angry?  Or do you simply say I just got to pray for such ignorance.

     SYBRINA FULTON:  I have to pray for that.  I have to pray for them because they don’t know Trayvon.  And the thing is when you don’t know somebody you make up stuff.  You want them to be the bad guy to justify what has happened.  But that still won’t justify it because George Zimmerman has Trayvon’s innocent blood on his hands.

    ROLAND MARTIN:  Sabrina, clearly the DOJ is investigating this, potentially looking at violations of civil rights of Trayvon Martin.  You also have the potential for a civil suit, Ben Crump; you can step in as well.  Are you looking at the civil suit and does the fact that the jury instructions had stand your ground in them make it even more difficult for you to pursue a civil suit against George Zimmerman?

    BEN CRUMP:  We’re certainly looking at all our legal options, Roland, and certainly the stand your ground law may be an impediment to us going forward but that is going to be a court decision and we’re going to talk about that with you and Tom, Roland, because there are some things we as a community need to try to do to push that.

    But right now we’re focused still on holding the killer accountable.  And we want the Department of Justice to answer that picture that we are framing, can private citizens profile our children and follow them, confront them and not be held accountable.  Because not even the United States Supreme Court will allow police officers to profile individuals based on a race or class.

    TOM JOYNER:  Sybrina, Ms. Fulton, how did you feel when you heard the interview of Juror B37 when she said that she felt that George Zimmerman’s heart was in the right place.

    SYBIL WILKES:  And George.  Not just Zimmerman.

    TOM JOYNER:  Yeah, just George.  How did that make you feel?

     SYBRINA FULTON:  It just shows me that there is some disconnect.  They did not see Trayvon as a teenager.  They saw him as something else.  They did not see him as minding his own business.  It seems to me like they took everything, and like she said, George, everything that George said, and they took it as the gospel truth. 

     Well, we all know that if you had shot and killed somebody you’re going to say anything that you have to say to try to get out of the mess that you got yourself into.  And I feel that our kids have to be careful now, because now we have to have the conversation with our kids about do you walk fast?  Do you walk slow?  Do you even walk at all to the store to get a drink and some candy?

    ROLAND MARTIN:  Sybrina, still lots of conversation from many people as it relates to our kids, and hoodies and things along those lines.  And I got to ask you, with all of this, would you tell your surviving son, would you tell, if you could do it all over again, would you tell Trayvon, people are making judgments about you.  You got to change what you wear?

     SYBRINA FULTON:  What I would tell my son now, and if I had been given the opportunity to tell Trayvon anything, he definitely would not have been in Stamford; because I don’t think in Miami he would have been profiled. 

     It’s hard for me right now because everything is still so fresh.  But I want them to be able to walk down the street, but I don’t want them to be afraid that somebody’s going to see them as a target.  Somebody may see them as a burglar.  And he was no burglar.  Trayvon was no burglar and neither is Jahvaris.  They’re not burglars.  They are not looking for trouble.  They’re just not those type of kids.  And what I would tell them is to be safe.  Be safe and just try to make it back home as quickly as you can and as safely as you can because you don’t know what the other person’s intentions are.

    ROLAND MARTIN:  You have a lot of mothers and fathers out there who have had to have some difficult conversations with their children in the wake of this verdict.  What would you tell those parents who said, now I live in fear to even send my kids to the store just to get some candy?

     SYBRINA FULTON:  That we need to definitely change these laws.  We can’t have a law on the books that says it’s alright for you to own a gun, it’s alright for you to follow somebody in the vehicle, follow somebody on foot, chase them, pretty much chase them, and get into a fight with them, shoot and kill them and say you was standing your ground.  That’s another thing that we’re working on is the Trayvon Martin amendment that says you cannot do those things.  But right now, as of now, those laws are on the books, it’s an awful law for us right now.

    BEN CRUMP:  Roland.

    ROLAND MARTIN:  Yes, Ben.  Go ahead.

    BEN CRUMP:  We encourage people to visit the Trayvon Martin Foundation, travyonmartin.org where we talk about those things, because as Sybrina and Tracy have said all along, they can’t bring Trayvon back, but right now they’re trying to make sure this doesn’t happen to your child.

    ROLAND MARTIN:  We also need folks to go to the website to also give as well because it takes money to fund these initiatives so that’s a part of it as well.  Sybrina Fulton, you and Tracy are certainly profiles in courage.  We thank you so much.  You’re enduring a significant amount of pain, but there are lots of people who are standing tall with you.

     SYBRINA FULTON:  Thank you so much.

    SYBIL WILKES:  Will we see you at the Family Reunion with us?

     SYBRINA FULTON:  Of course I’ll be there.

    SYBIL WILKES:  Oh, God bless you.

     SYBRINA FULTON:  That way I can let my hair down.

    SYBIL WILKES:  There you go.

     SYBRINA FULTON:  I look forward to letting my hair down.

    1. Its sad that a little over a year ago, all she wanted was Zmmerman to be arrested, so she and Tracy gave the media pictures of Treyvon when he was a preteen, and the world was mislead, and Zimmerman got arrested, And she agreed with Ms Corey to go along with the verdict, then when the jury acguitted Zimmerman well you can see how she is complaining, and the media s going along with her again. Now the media and Sybrina Fulton are again misleading the American public about juror B-29 when in fact she was asked a question about Zimmerman getting away with murder, and she just repeated what she was asked and just like before she was edited, so it seemed as if she said it when in fact she didn’t say it. This whole fiasco has been nothing but a misleading bunch of lies all started by the parents of Treyvon, I am very surprised that the people of stature haven’t sued these [people yet, now she is going around this country on somebody else money and talking about this stand your ground law when in fact it was not even used in the trial. And the American Public cant see just what she is doing, talk about politics and guns, Mr Sharpton at his best and without her handlers lets see how she does. I would say that she made Zimmerman the most hated man in America, and before it’s over she will be the most hated woman in America.

    2. What you all should be embarrassed and ashamed about is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson starting a race war and lying to you all. Hate is Al Sharpton holding a noose while saying Zimmerman should hang to a huge group of people. Hate is the Black Panthers saying “kill the whites” Hate is the Black Panthers putting a bounty on Zimmerman for $10k. Hate and evil is Tracy and Sabrina associating with the likes of such evil when Sabrina herself said this isn’t about race and claims to be a christian and God fearing woman. Those are NOT christian values. Actually the Bible speaks a lot about hypocrites and wolves in sheeps clothing. You may not like what I have to say….but at least I speak the TRUTH and not gossip.
      The only person with blood on their hands will be Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Ben Crump, Angela Corey, Norton Bartaparte Jr, and the rest. Believe what you want, but you all were used and manipulated by these people.

    3. Lol…Now whos not liking the Facts???? He will Never be totally Free like this ARTICLE States he will always Have the Blood of that Innoncent Child on his Hands…The Guilt and Concious will eventually Eat him alive….And lets not forget This cruel, cruel World we live in….He can Never be Free of this….Thats Justice wihin itself……While Trayvone will have His HEAVENLY WINGS LOOKING DOWN no more turmoil,no more Profiling….No more Pain….I REST MY CASE MAAM…….

      • Yes, RICHELLE SHERMAN, it had to be a shot into the heart because there was not an option to shoot a bullet through the brain because that would have had to first exist, imo, and clearly Trayvon didn‘t even have a brain. Was he related to you?

    5. Lol @ Jane Corey…..Im sorry to inform u that Im not scared of any discussion or Debate….Please stop ASSUMING….iTS MAKING AN ASS OUT OF U NOT ME….THATS CLEARLY WHAT WERE DOING HERE….HAVE U TAKEN UR MEDICINE FOR TODAY???

      • RICHELLE SHERMAN, clearly you still afraid of any discussion or debate about the facts of this case, and your trolling proves all my previous comments to be correct regarding your psychosis and the problems that continue to make you inept for any possible discussion with you. That’s common among trolls like you RS. Try, instead, to actually research the facts of this case because you clearly are absent of any ability to discuss this case as a rational-human-being. I hope you get released soon, and we will continue to pray for your recovery. Best of luck to you.

    6. UR NOT HURTING ANYONE WITH UR WORDS…..JAN COREY UR ONE LONELY,IGORNANT,PERSON WITH NOTHING BUT TIME ON UR HAND I SEE THE NEXT ZIMMERMAN WANNA BE WONT BE THAT LUCKY….I BET U THAT…ONCE AGAIN GOOD DAY :-)

      • RICHELLE SHERMAN, I see the facts of this case still scare you and make you incapable of carrying on any type of discussion or even a debate of the facts provided through the case file. Ignorance should not be your goal in life as you are demonstrating RS, may I suggest you stop attacking others and just understand that those that are better-informed on this case are not your enemy, but your supporters in seeking you to become more aware of the facts of this case you still do not appear to have a clue about. Best wishes for you and maybe someone might even pray for you, I just hope you rely upon your psychotropic-medications instead.

      • SEXYSHELLY, I am so happy that Mr. Zimmerman was acquittal, as I always said he would be, and I am also happy that Trayvon did not survive after he assaulted Mr. Zimmerman so people can use this crime by Trayvon as a reminder for their children and teach them all not to commit crimes like Trayvon did, and never, ever bash a victim’s head against a cement walkway because they could get a bullet lodged into their brain and be killed. Thanks again SS for proving my points too, much appreciated. :) Maybe we should use this opportunity to get a National-Shoot-A-Hoodie-Day to be done once each year where if anyone is shot who is wearing a hoodie, the shooter will not be prosecuted. All the shooter will be require to state if that they had a “fear” from the potential-perpetrader. All of which to be done in memory of that high-on-dope-felony-assailant-thug-Trayvon-Martin.

    7. WOW…..SO SAD JANCOREY…SO SAD THAT UR A PATHETHIC HUMAN BEING WITH NO MORALS OR VALUES FOR HUMAN LIFE NEITHER U NOR I CAN JUDGE 3 PEOPLE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT….TRAYVON WHOS NOT HERE TO LEND HIS VOICE(RIP), THAT POOR EXCUSE OF A MAN ZIMMERMAN….AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST GOD….HES THE ONLY JUDGE….HE WILL PAY BELEIVE THAT….GOOD DAY

      • Jiggy5, I think the criminal justice system worked perfectly, an acquittal of an innocent man and the appropriate death, imo, of a dope-head who committed a felony-assault before catching a bullet in his heart for his efforts. Perfect!

    8. Richelle Sherman, Trayvon Martin was the only criminal present at the complex when he was shot after he bashed a victim’s head against a cement sidewalk and if I was there that night, I would have added a bullet up each of Trayvon’s dope-nostrils. Not sure, but I likely would have urinated on him after that too, not totally sure about that part.

    9. It was great that Sybrina Fulton will use Trayvon’s name to expand his legacy, maybe with her own line of handgun-accessories like hollow-point-thug-bullets or perhaps some marijuana items like a Trayvon-brand-pot or maybe some bongs and roach clips or maybe some burglary tools like crow bars, lock-cutters, and glass cutters or maybe have a t-shirt with a gun-target on it with a picture of Trayvon inside the bullseye.

    10. YOUR ONE IGNORANT PERSON JANCOREY….WHERES YOUR ILEGITMATE CHILD?SO IT CAN BE PROFILED,GUN DOWN LIKE AN ANIMAL AN KILLED??ZIMMERMAN GOT WHAT HE DESERVE HE SHOULD HAVE NEVER APP
      ROACH THE YOUNG MAN AND HE WOULDNT HAVE GOTTEN HIS ASS KICKED LIKE HE DID….THEN SHOOT AN KILL LIKE THE COWARD HE IS…..THIS MAN DIDNT RECEIVE JUSTICE IN OUR EYES….BUT HES NOT A FREE MAN IN NO WAY…HE HAS TO LOOK OVER HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE REST OF HIS EMPTY LIFE AND HAS TO DEAL WITH THE ULTIMATE JUDGE…..THATS GOD…..AND IF I REMEMBER ONE OF HIS COMMANDMENTS IS…THOU SHALL NOT KILL….SO NOT ONLY WILL HE ROT IN THIS LIFE…..HE WILL DEFINTLEY ROT IN ETERNAL LIFE……SO ALL HAIL TO YOUR SO CALLED HERO…..IGNORANCE IS BLISS JANCOREY

      • I have to wonder if any person that went to any of the rallies has even graduated from high-school like their idol-thuggster-Trayvon did not graduate high-school. Trayvon graduated from being-a-criminal-school, I guess.

    11. My heart and prayers go out to Trayvon Martins family. The laws of this country need to be changed but that would only be the first step.

      • Michele, it was great that Sybrina Fulton will use Trayvon’s name to expand his legacy, maybe with her own line of handgun-accessories like hollow-point-thug-bullets or perhaps some marijuana items like a Trayvon-brand-pot or maybe some bongs and roach clips or maybe some burglary tools like crow bars and glass cutters or maybe have a t-shirt with a gun-target on it with a picture of Trayvon inside the bullseye.

    12. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH LETTING A BABY KILLER GO FREE. WE NEED TO GET CONGRESS TO ENACT A LAW TO PREVENT OVERZEALOUS NUTS FROM HUNTING DOWN PEOPLE LIKE ANIMALS AND KILLING THEM. HE ASSUMED TRAYVON WAS A THUG. WE ALL INCLUDING ZIMMERMAN KNOW THAT ASSUME MAKES AN ASS OUT OF YOU AND ME. THIS NEW LAW THAT WE ENACT SHOULD BE CALLED THE TRAYVON MARTIN LAW. ALSO IS ZIMMERMAN STILL THE NEIGHBORHOOD “WATCH” NUT. MAKE A TRAYVON MARTIN CENTER FOR KIDS TO GO TO AND LEARN HOW TO CALL 911.

      • Karen Bottom, the only baby appears to be you. Look at your rant with all-caps, screaming like a little uneducated and uninformed baby. I don’t care if Trayvon was only five years old, if he attacked a victim and threatened to kill the victim, was high on illegal drugs and started to smash the victim’s head against a cement walkway, I’d eliminate the threat too and I believe any educated person in that situation would do as well.

    13. Ms.Fulton has made it PERFECTLY clear when she stated “We will define Trayvon’s legacy!”
      I am GLAD she will continue to fight for justice for her son, in spite of the USELESS WASTE of SPACE that make up the JanCorey’s of the world.

      • Scout, great that Ms. Fulton will use Trayvon’s name to expand his legacy, maybe with her own line of handgun accessories like hollow-point-thug-bullets or perhaps some marijuana items like a Trayvon-brand-pot or maybe some bongs and roach clips or maybe some burglary tools like crow bars and glass cutters.

    14. Has there ever been a black marriage in Florida where the women is married, consecutively, to her husband, then they have a baby, then they both raise that baby together while living together, then that child goes to school and graduates high school without violating the Law constantly?

      • PROOF POSITIVE OF THE RESULTS OF IN-BREEDING!! DO THE WORLD A FAVOR AND KILL YOURSELF. I HOPE YOUR INCESTUOS PARENTS HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THAT TASK!!!

        • It was great that Sybrina Fulton will use Trayvon’s name to expand his legacy, maybe with her own line of handgun-accessories like hollow-point-thug-bullets or perhaps some marijuana items like a Trayvon-brand-pot or maybe some bongs and roach clips or maybe some burglary tools like crow bars, lock-cutters, and glass cutters or maybe have a t-shirt with a gun-target on it with a picture of Trayvon inside the bullseye.

    15. Sybrina Fulton and Trayvon’s father need to both be in prison, LWOP if you ask me, for creating that thug-Trayvon. I have to wonder just how many residences in the complex Trayvon and his buddies broke into before George Zimmerman caught up to him and ended his criminal trail. Thank you Mr. Zimmerman, you are our hero.

      • I see you use the wounded warrior project logo. Every vet around the would should be offended by you using our logo and spewing you mentally challenged insults. These men and women fought for the rights and freedoms of others, but you can not do that at home for Trayvon. Finally, before you talk about Trayvon’s parents ask your sister who your parents are, She will tell you that she is your mother and she is ashame of you.

        • Donnell, I see you were recently released, again, from your mental ward. Good for you. I also see that facts about this case continue to scare you and your rants and attacks towards others you are jealousy of is still quite clear to us who are better-informed than yourself. May I suggest that this time, you stick to your doctor’s advice, stay on your regimented-medication-schedules, stop your attacks against others you are jealous about (your rants are childish like Trayvons) and remove all sharp objects in your immediate vicinity and pray each night before you retire. Best of luck to you and we will keep you in our prayers.

        • Trayvon Martin murdered through his own actions. No one’s fault for Trayvon’s illegal activities but Trayvon and his parents.
