George Zimmerman Claims Trayvon Martin's Parents Didn't Raise Him Right

In an interview The Daily Beast published Tuesday, George Zimmerman said the parents of Trayvon Martin "didn't raise their son right," and called the Black Lives Matter movement a "fraudulent, violent campaign." In February 2012, Zimmerman fatally shot 17-year-old Martin. The next year he was acquitted of second-degree murder.

In addition, he told The Daily Beast that Martin's mom and dad, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, are bad parents who are "capitalizing" on Trayvon's death. He is also auctioning off the gun he used to kill Martin.

The auction received a $65 million bid from a user named "Racist McShootface" — Zimmerman claims he has a firm offer with verified assets for $100,000. Zimmerman said, "It is what was used to save my life from a near-death brutal attack by Trayvon Martin." Zimmerman said that Martin "attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him."

Of Martin's family, he said, "It's their duty to have an internal dialogue to see what they should have done better and what they should have done appropriately."

He then shared what he would do with funds from the gun sale including fighting Hillary Clinton's "anti-firearm rhetoric." He says he also wants to end the career of Angela Corey, the prosecutor who charged him with second-degree murder in Martin's death.

He then claimed he would "fight" the Black Lives Matter movement and compensate law-enforcement officers he says were affected by it. He stated, "They would know that George Zimmerman is going to step in and make them richer than they ever dreamed of being."
