Trayvon’s Parents Urge Law Change

Trayvon Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, on Friday called for a change to Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law—the measure George Zimmerman has used in defense of shooting and killng their teenage son. “We want to know what drugs were in [George Zimmerman’s] system that made him do the things he did,” their lawyer told reporters after a hearing regarding Trayvon’s school records. Trayvon’s parents “will stand by any ruling of the court,” their lawyer said, but they don’t think Trayvon’s school records should be relevant in George Zimmerman’s trial for second-degree murder, which will start June 10.
