Trayvon Martin's parents speak for first time since verdict
MIAMI (AP) -- The family of Trayvon Martin spoke for the first time since George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of the unarmed teen.
In an interview with "C-B-S This Morning" Sybrina Fulton described how she felt when a six-woman jury acquitted the Neighborhood Watch volunteer.
Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense.
The not guilty verdict sparked several protest across the country.
Martin's mother also told NBC's "Today" the impact of the verdict goes beyond the case itself.
An attorney for the family now wants the Department of Justice to investigate the case.
I thought surely that he would be found guilty of second-degree murder, manslaughter at the least. this was no burglar. this was somebody -- somebody's son that was trying to get home.
The Martins say they are still trying to forgive George Zimmerman and are deciding whether to sue for wrongful death.
