Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, told CNN Anchor Kate Bolduan that the family is processing the not guilty verdict for George Zimmerman, and will be talking about further legal action soon. Crump added that because he thinks racial profiling took place, the Justice Department should investigate.
When Bolduan asks if Trayvon Martin’s parents will pursue a civil lawsuit, Crump responds, “We’ll be talking about all of that in the days to come. Right now they are trying to make sense of this criminal verdict. As Sabrina Fulton said, we have to roll up our sleeves because even though we’ve come a long way, we’ve got a long way to go to make sure that this doesn’t happen to anybody else’s child, especially after this verdict.”
