And -- and you know some.
There was no evidence on -- My that I wasn't very.

They would tell me.
This is -- Fox News alert I'm Geraldo Rivera the day after thousands rallied in Sanford Florida couple thousand more rallied this afternoon.
In Miami's bay front park.
In support of the parent to -- bond market.
The unarmed Florida teenager shot and killed by George Zimmermann the 28 year old neighborhood watch captain whose arrest.
Now seems inevitable.
If not imminent.
All of the -- greater.
When we speak up.
-- -- The legal reason Zimmerman will likely be indicted soon is the claim Saturday by forensic audio experts hired by the Orlando sentinel.
That -- -- scientific certainty.
They believe the boy screaming for help on the 911 tape of a deadly encounter.
Belongs to the dead teenager.
Not to the shooter.
In other words it was -- -- screaming for help not Zimmerman has previously claim.
If that analysis is confirmed by prosecutors the 911 tape would be powerful evidence against Zimmerman -- claim of self defense.
And an indictment for at least involuntary manslaughter.
Would soon follow.
A step that perhaps bring some measure of comfort to -- of -- grieving family.
But let them speak for themselves -- mother Sabrina Bolton and his father Tracy Martin join me live.
From Miami welcome both of you thank you for coming on.
And please this is the first time I've spoken to you except my condolences for your awful loss.
-- -- You must Sabrina takes some comfort in the fact that these scientists.
Now agree with you -- That the 911.
Tape the voice is that of your son its trade on not George Zimmermann as as previously -- Yes I do right I'm -- I'm almost certain.
That they agreed with the same thing that I heard so I was glad to hear that experts have agreed without -- -- -- operating.
And do you take heart.
In the fact that so many people Tracy.
Is as warm into the tomorrow heart to know that there are a lot of people out there that's that is in support of us.
And that will continue to support us until we have justice -- -- Do you worry at all -- that this.
Case has divided the nation with black people overwhelmingly on one side and many many white people on the other.
-- I don't look at at that are at all.
This isn't a race issue this is an issue about what's right and was wrong.
And Sabrina are you comfortable now that the state will indeed indict George -- do you think that that is now as I believe inevitable.
Yes I do I just truly believed -- -- they are still investigating.
But things are being leaked out and I believe he's going to be arrested very -- What kind of young man was straight bond was -- a confrontational.
No he was not -- bond was very friendly entree -- was very lovable he was very respectful.
And he loved little -- And yeah.
-- Trace the a lot was made before the evidence of the video showing Zimmerman had no serious injuries.
And then 911 tape analysis a lot was made earlier in the week.
That your son was thrown out of school multiple times was he had a violent -- -- more aggressive person had he ever been arrested.
Never been arrested.
Anything he was suspended for most there's certainly wasn't -- In fact.
He was a total opposite of what they tried to portray him and tell me what he was in real life.
In real life he was my hero.
And aids in nine years old tree above for me out of a burning fire he saved my life.
For me not to be there for him in his time when the is really troubling to me.
And Sabrina had adding insult to injury the fact that he stayed -- John doe in the morgue for.
36 hours was it that must be.
That -- kind of Ed as a mother a horrible thing to you to ponder.
Yes it bothered us a great deal on because we wanted the body back home.
Com we didn't want him to stay at the medical Examiner's -- Tracy I did in fact his body the very next day however due to different legalities.
They were not able.
Two I did -- -- him.
At the medical Examiner's.
Which led us to.
Wait a few days before we actually got the body bay unit in -- but to see him.
Did you feel a huge sense of frustration Sabrina that they didn't arrest George -- on the spot.
That part outraged me I was very upset that the person that murdered my son was not arrested.
Com I truly believe that he would have been arrested on the scene.
-- the -- -- police department had done their job they would have been arrested him at the scene and let the judge just that if he was guilty or innocent.
A week ago I ran it against goodies like the one now worn by trade bonds on the evening was shot dead by George Zimmermann.
Because in Zimmerman words stray bomb looked like he was up to no good.
I said then that trade bonds could be killed him as surely as -- Zimmerman did not what I was trying to do.
Was cautioned parents that allowing their kids to where could these or similar clothing in certain circumstances to to get their minority young man.
Could be dangerous.
But I never intended to hurt anyone's feelings and certainly Sabrina and Tracy I never intended to hurt your feelings I want.

Was not credible.
And being you have a state attorney.
For whatever reason that night drove well we'll -- at their mouths.

And meet with the police chief.
And we don't know who else would we don't know -- -- them on this problem other family members was there but for whatever reason.
Something that seems illogical.
They told the lead investigator.
The person who's trying to the -- had experience doing this over day in the day out.
That they reject his recommendation.
