They didn’t believe him.
“It was an emotional day and the family was disheartened,” said Benjamin Crump, the lawyer for the family. It was the first time Trayvon Martin’s parents were in the same room with the man who killed their son, Crump said. “The family wants a conviction,” he said. “And they would rather that he would not be out of jail.”
The family’s statement came out after the judge ruled George Zimmerman was can be released on a $150,000 bail.
“They felt the apology was insincere,” Crump said. “They felt that the apology had a lot of self-serving motives. We think it was to curry favor with the court. It was offensive to the family.”
Crump added, “Zimmerman had 50 days to apologize, but he waited until the hearing to apologize. He never once said he was sorry for taking the life of Trayvon Martin. He never said he felt remorse.”
Other observers say that his apology was likely made to help his case.
