(NBC News) Trayvon Martin's parent's are speaking out for the first time since George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of their son.

"We felt in our hearts that we were going to get a conviction," said Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father. "We thought that the killer of our unarmed child was going to be convicted of the crime he committed."

Sybrina Fulton says the system failed her son, and she worries about the long term affect of the verdict.

"Its sending a terrible message to other little black and brown boys that you can't walk fast, you can't walk slow, so what do they do?" she said.
