Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy, said Thursday it was difficult to listen to testimony about his son, particularly the negative comments, during George Zimmerman’s trial.
“That wasn’t the Trayvon that we raised. That wasn’t the Trayvon that we knew, and that we love,” he said during a Thursday night interview on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
Still, Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, said that she felt the need to sit through every day of Zimmerman’s trial because her son was “not here to say anything for himself.”
She said that she wanted to “show a face” for her son.
In spite of his son’s death, Tracy Martin said he has faith in the legal system.
“The state did all they could with what they had” given the poor quality of the investigation, he said.
“Does the system work? It didn’t work for us. We remain prayerful that through this injustice, we can close that gap and hopefully the system can start working for everyone equally.”
