The families of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman reacted on Twitter after Zimmerman was cleared of all charges in the fatal shooting of the unarmed teen.
George Zimmerman’s older brother also gave his reaction on Twitter. Robert Zimmerman Jr. said his family was relieved of the jury’s decision that his brother was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter. He tweeted he’s “Proud to be an American.”
Martin’s father, Tracy, tweeted: “Even though I’m broken hearted.. My faith is unshattered. I will always love my baby, Tray.”
Martin’s mother, Sybina Fulton wrote: “Lord during my darkest hour I lean on you…Thank you all for your prayers. I will love you forever Trayvon!!!”
The 17-year-old’s older brother, Jahvaris Fulton tweeted: “et tu america?” — a reference to the latin phrase “et tu, brute?” known as an expression of betrayal.
