It’s been one year since George Zimmerman was arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Now, Zimmerman’s mother is speaking out.
His mother, Gladys wrote a scathing letter to the public saying her son was arrested simply to “placate the masses”.
Authorities say Zimmerman, who was a neighborhood watch volunteer, shot the unarmed teen in Florida last February.
Zimmerman claims it was self-defense.
He is charged with second-degree murder in martin’s death.
