Trayvon Martin's mother speaks in Ohio

The mother of an unarmed African-American teen shot and killed by a white neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida says she is mentally prepared to handle whatever verdict or sentence is handed down.  Sybrina Fulton made the statement to reporters Wednesday after she and the teen's father, Tracy Martin, addressed a town hall meeting on violence and racial healing in Cincinnati. The February shooting of their son, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, led to nationwide protests over race and self-defense laws after police failed to arrest shooter George Zimmerman for more than a month.
