Defense Attorney Mark O’Mara to Sybrina Fulton: “You certainly hope, as a mom, that your son Trayvon Martin would not have done anything that led to his death, correct?” Fulton replies, “What I hoped for is that nothing happened and he’d still be here. That’s my hope.” Then says “I don’t believe he was” responsible for his own death. Sybrina Fulton is excused from the stand.
