Trayvon Martin, father, Tracy Martin, mother Sybrina FultonThe parents of Trayvon Martin, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, will not grant George Zimmerman’s request to meet with him in private, attorney Benjamin Crump said Thursday.

At a press conference in Tampa, Florida, Crump said that now, the night before he could be possibly be granted bond, was “not the time” for Zimmerman to speak with them:

Some crimes on their face are non-bondable offense. Second-degree murder is one of them,” Crump said. “We didn’t just demand an arrest to have George Zimmerman give the police his fingerprints and his mug shot.”

The crowd of over 400 supporters crowded into a town hall meeting at Beulah Baptist Institutional Church to stand in solidarity with Trayvon’s parents and to learn from a panel about Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Since taking over as Zimmerman’s legal council, attorney Mark O’ Mara has consistently hinted at Zimmerman possibly offering an apology to Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton for killing their unarmed 17-year-old son. Though he has shared neither a time nor date,  he’s always insisted that it would be away from media’s glare:

I’ve talked a couple of times about the conversation that, hopefully, will occur directly to the Martin family, a private conversation,” said O’Mara.

Crump says that Trayvon’s parents are standing their ground and are not open to that possibility in the foreseeable future:

We stand on legal, public safety and moral grounds to solidify our position that Zimmerman should be held without bond until these matters are concluded,” Crump said.

“Sybrina is a Christian lady and Tracy — they are good people, and there may be a time and place for that, but not now.”
