Trayvon Martin's father: My son defended himself

Sybrina Fulton and Tracey Martin demand justice in the shooting death of their 17-year-old son. They told Anderson Trayvon was only defending himself in the confrontation with George Zimmerman.

    Try asking Trayvons parents why it took them 3 days to locate him if they knew he was staying at his father's girlfriends house. One of the first places I would have called is the police dept. for that area.

    I'm so tired of hearing about this story! Furthermore, why has this blown up to a race war? Stop saying he's white, he's not, he's hispanic! Yes, we all want justice, but fact after fact keeps coming out, and to be honest, if someone was on me, punching me in the face and pounding my head into the concrete after I simply asked him "what are you doing here" then I would've probably ended up with the same result as Zimmerman! He could just as easily have been the victim, but this entire media fest was biased to begin with!!!! I think it's amazing that the family is in such denial after eyewitness say that it was Zimmerman yelling out for help on the tapes on not their son. Most people would like to believe that they can identify a loved ones voice over a crappy recording, but they are fooling themselves. On a final note I think it is despicable of his parents to try and patent slogan and phrases in order to make money off of the death of their son. That goes to show what kind of people they are, and shame on them!!!!
