Trayvon Martin Killing: Friend Tells ABC News Howls on 911 Tapes Belong to Zimmerman, Not Martin
ABC News ^ | March 24, 2012 | Matt Gutman

Posted on 03/25/2012 3:56:43 PM PDT by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny

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...

The usual race hustlers, including the Obamunist, are going to step in it with this case.

It’ll be fun to watch.

The facts no longer matter in this case. obumber and santorum have already passed judgement.

If the fact that the shooter was Hispanic sticks will this fact create a rift in the coalition of blacks and Hispanics? Can the shooting be made to backfire against a White House busy fanning the flame?

I briefly liked Santorum but got over it. After reading his comment about this case, I know I made the right decision.

He is as bad as Obama, jumping on the bandwagon without knowing what the heck he was talking about. We already have one of those in the WH, don’t need another one.

Yes.

The DNC war on Hispanics will help guys like Marco Rubio.

Obama and the pimps choose poorly.

When people as stupid as Hollywood Stars and NBA players get involved in a “movement” you know that we are quite far from the truth of that situation.

Does everyone realize that the boy died on February 26th??

This is now looking like an organized Political movement and I'd guess Obama is behind it..a great distraction and pulling for that black vote. They get fired up, he adds his two cents and they go vote....lousey SOBs.....

Trayvon’s father said it isn’t his son screaming.

The left does have the MSM repeating over and over that Zimmerman was white. The only outcome really sure at this time is the left will use this death to the fullest extent. “Hoodies” and the humble little “Skittles” will be exploited to the maximum.

Occupy Wallstreet.

War on Women.

Trayvon outcry.

Orchestrated MSM activate the base.

The left’s version of the legitimate grassroots Tea Party.

It smells more and more like an organized agitprop campaign, doesn’t it?

They learned how to co-ordinate everything better after the Duke Lacrosse case, but once again, they ignored the pesky facts. This time, they don’t have a crooked prosecutor to carry their water, tho.

Zimmerman is at least as hispanic as Obama is black.

I meant the part about him not being a racist was speculation. Everyone knows Zimmerman is a racist - Jesse Jackson, Louie Faraakahnn, Al Sharpton, Danny Glover, Malik Zulu Shabazzzz ....

This may be silly question but how come the Hispanic community in Fla is so silent on this story? I mean normally one would wait for ALL the facts before coming out with opinions but giving that so many different people are voicing theirs, I have not noticed anything from Hispanic groups.....

This is not Obama’s grandfather’s U.S.A.

U.S. citizens could, and do, have cousins, wives, husbands, in-laws of different races. People don’t always get along regardless of race.

I go to church with all sorts of diverse ethnic backgrounds and races—from Syrian, to Japanese, to black, to Hispanic, to Taiwanese, to white. We are FAMILY...and we are mutts. Families have trouble, even those in the same family end up having tragic accidents.

So Obama thinks Trayvon looks like his son? So what? He looks like MY cousin. Jorge/George looks like my friends. The division needs to end with current occupant of the Oval Office.

So we are left with 1) The Obamunist, 2) the Romneymunist, and 3) the Satorumunist. So those of you (and from the polls, there must be a bunch of you) who like Santorum, how is he going to be any different than the other two? Not that it matters because the election is going to be between the first two!

Is that the pic from Martin's facebook? The most recent pic I've been able to find of him is this one, which also does not convey sweetness and innocence:

The last time I've seen so much media hype about a white-n-black incident was in the Rodney King incident. I think they are hoping for a repeat.

Maybe after Dick Cheney's heart transplant, a brokered convention will turn to him as someone who can unify the party.

Who would be a good running mate for Cheney? Scott Walker? Bob McDonnell? Paul Ryan?

Given that the event occurred a month ago (Feb. 26), was fully reported locally...and raised no hackles at the time...there is little doubt that whoever caused the event to be publicized nationally about four weeks later was grinding an ax of some kind.

I want to know who that was. And why the media decided to pick up on the story...and leave out an eye-witnesses revelantions that led in the local reporting.

There is a much bigger story lurking behind the scenes here...

That is not the right Trayvon Martin in the lower left.

From what I understand, it’s not. It’s apparently a trEyvon Martin of Savannah Georgia. They are gonna mod that one down man.

If you want to see him, google “trayvon martin gold teeth” and look for a pic that shows a close up of him showing his gold teeth right next to another pic of him in a hollister shirt. When you find that pic, compare his chin mouth, nose, ears, eyebrows, and cheeks.

Look for a line in his skin under his right eye on his right cheek in both pics, and you will see that that is him.

I’m not so sure. I’ve read several sources claiming it’s Martin.

But you could be correct.

I wonder if the Black Panthers have put a bounty on the black witness. Or will they lynch him if they catch him? Damn Uncle Tom pulling that white Hispanic “truth” crap.

BTW, if Zimmerman is a white Hispanic, doesn’t that make obama a black Caucasian?

You know, as much as I am admittedly on the side of Zimmerman in this matter, I’ve got to be honest, because truth is the only thing that matters.

I cannot say with certainty that it’s him, and I suspect that it may not be him. Just looking at that picture, I don’t see where a guy that size would be able to mount an adult male and beat him. He looks wirey for sure, but just does not appear to have the body mass to issue a smack down the likes of which could man a grown man scream.

But I don’t know one way or the other, just have to wait for more details on this one. Certainly it would seem that at some point more recent verified pictures of Martin will surface.

I concede, after doing a bit more research, I can’t say if it’s him or not. So until I find out, I won’t post it anymore.

The photos with the dart board appear to be the real T.M., on the thread you (chris) posted them. Cynwoody has more info than most about what photos are of the “real” T.M.

(the photo in comment #100 is not Trayvon but from his FB page.)
