Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Capt. Brian Beckmann is under fire for comments made on his Facebook page concerning the Trayvon Martin case. The news comes as Martin's mom, Sybrina Fulton, appears at her Miami Gardens church for a Sunday service.
The mother of Trayvon Martin made an appearance at a Sunday service in honor of her son at a Miami Gardens church, as members of the congregation wore hoodies in support of the family.
Sybrina Fulton attended the service at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, where she was presented with a check to cover expenses for her family.
"I want to say thank you to each and every one of you," Fulton said. "It's very difficult for me to speak, I'm always nervous every time I speak, but right now I feel like I'm at home."
Martin, 17, was wearing a hoodie when he was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in a gated community in Sanford on Feb. 26.
Zimmerman said the shooting was in self-defense, but last week, he was charged with second-degree murder and surrendered to authorities. He remains behind bars in Seminole County.
The lack of an arrest for more than 40 days after the shooting has led to protests nationwide.
Also on Sunday, it was reported that Miami-Dade Fire Rescue is investigating a comment made by one of its firefighters on his personal Facebook page regarding the Trayvon Martin case.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said the post made by Capt. Brian Beckmann is under investigation.
Actor and comedian Bill Cosby also spoke out about the Martin shooting Sunday in an interview on CNN, saying the shooting should be about guns, not race.
Cosby said calling George Zimmerman a racist doesn't solve anything, and added that the bigger question is what Zimmerman was doing with a gun, and who taught him how to behave with it.
