    Robert Zimmerman interview

    For the first time since that fateful night on February 26, the father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager sat down for a television interview.
    For the first time since that fateful night on February 26, the father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager sat down for a television interview.

Trayvon Martin's parents expressed their anger and concern over George Zimmerman's claims in his interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. 

Zimmerman -- who is charged in the shooting death of the teen -- apologized to his parents, Tracey Martin and Sybrina Fulton.   

They appeared on "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning and said they don't believe Zimmerman's apology was sincere. 

"I just feel like he's just saying anything he wants too, and it's not sincere, it's not coming from his heart," said Sybrina Fulton. 

"George Zimmerman had ample enough time to apologize to us for taking the life of our son before the first arrest, and to come and try to publicly apologize now, he's just trying to save face," said Tracey Martin.      

Martin and Fulton were also bothered when Zimmerman said he had no regrets about the night of the shooting and claimed it was all part of "God's plan."   

"I don't understand what he was thinking by saying it that it was god's plan that he murdered our child...I really don't understand what god he worships, because it's not the same god that I worship," said Martin.

"Why would god have him to kill an unarmed teenager...I mean it just makes no sense," said Fulton.      

The attorney for the martin parents -- Benjamin Crump -- says the state attorney will look at this interview as a gift and use it during their cross-examination of Zimmerman in court. 

Crump says Zimmerman has always had inconsistencies in his story and has had credibility issues. "We don't have enough time in your show to go through all the inconsistencies, but we need only look at the courts order to talk about George Zimmerman's credibility, and the things he said in court during the bond hearing." 

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty and is free on a $1 million bond.  His next scheduled court date is August 8th.
