On Monday evening, Piers Morgan spoke to Gladys Zimmerman, the mother of George Zimmerman who is accused of the murder of Trayvon Martin. During the interview, Zimmerman addressed the public misconception that her son is a racist and voiced her disappointment that those who knew her son did not defend him. "People who knew George, they didn't bother to come up front and said, no, he's not racist," said Zimmerman.
Zimmerman express her sadness for the tragedy saying she was "deeply sorry for what had happened."
"It is a tremendous tragedy for both families. I'm very sorry for the loss of their son."
In addition, Zimmerman also told Morgan that she still has faith in legal due process. "I believe in the judicial system," she said. Zimmerman trusts that the judicial system will exonerate her son.
"I believe from the beginning that, you know, he is innocent, and I mean, the media had played a big role against my son. They had portrayed him in a bad, bad picture. But there is justice in America, and I believe in justice."
