A friend of George Zimmerman, the man who shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., told ABC News today that the voice heard howling on the tape of a 911 call was Zimmerman's, not the teen's.
The man, a black friend of the family who spoke to Zimmerman tonight, told ABC News that Zimmerman was weeping for days after the shooting, which sparked protests across the country, and he insisted that Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, is not a racist.
"We wanted to come forward because allegations of racism just aren't true. His friends speak highly of him," said attorney Greg Sonner, who has been representing Zimmerman for two weeks.
Zimmerman's friend said that the howls heard on the 911 call, which helped galvanize the nation against Zimmerman, in fact belonged to Zimmerman, not Martin.
A witness who saw Martin on top of Zimmerman told ABC News the same: the pleas for help were Zimmerman's.

In fact, I'm wondering who identified it as a "stand your ground" case in the first place.
Somebody had to make it a public issue -- if Jeb Bush felt called upon to deny that it fit the definition. And it certainly spawned a liberal movement to "repeal stand your ground laws".
Yet, it clearly doesn't apply to the case.
Excellent observation. Liberals clearly don’t like the “Stand Your Ground” law, and are deliberately using this case to try to weaken it!
I wish it were so. I keep thinking if things get even worse than it is in this country, so many will have to see the light and admit they were wrong. Some are so brain dead/washed, they would never be able to admit they are wrong. Some are so prideful they would never admit it. Some are so deceitful and hateful they would never admit it. Some have an agenda like Obama and Sharpton that they will never admit it. Just like this case. It won’t happen. I’m hoping it will peter out once the steam is released—that’s if we are lucky.
