Skip to comments.Police: Zimmerman says Trayvon decked him with one blow then began hammering his head

With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel.
That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say.
Zimmerman has not spoken publicly about what happened, but that night, Feb. 26, and in later meetings he described and re-enacted for police what he says happened.
In his version of events, he had turned around and was walking back to his SUV when Trayvon approached him from behind, the two exchanged words then Trayvon punched him in the nose, sending him to the ground, and began beating him.

Well, well. The Orlando Sentinel. This is big. Let’s just hope that the race baiters don’t manage to lynch Zimmerman before the media decide it’s time to let the truth come out.
Here we go......
The truth is starting to get out. By Friday, you won’t hear about it again. It doesn’t serve the lefts purpose; to start a racial war.
If that is true Zimerman had reason to fear for his life and was justified in shooting him.
But it's just more fun to be outraged.
We still don't know "The Truth"....but at least other side is now getting a hearing.
Clay Aiken was just on the third hour of the Today Show wearing a hoodie in support of Trayvon Martin.
The truth seems to be leaking out on the net.
10 day suspension info:
I must have seen 30+ segments of this issue on MSNBC (now the Trayvon Martin channel) but not one gave this account which may or may not be true. Every single one had Trayvon Martin chased and then shot in the back while begging for his life, go figure. Even FNC followed MSNBC's lead.
The above story wouldnt have motivated those protests in the same way.
If these reported facts are true then the “Hoodie” and “Skittles” flap has received a major blow. These facts may even rebound against the imbeciles in the White House.
Not only was Trayvon Martin said to be on top of Zimmerman, punching him, but there is some speculation that there was some struggle over the gun before Zimmerman shot him, and even that it was Martin who discovered the gun and first started to get it out.
One shot was fired from the chamber, and the magazine was still full. Why didn’t the chamber reload after firing, from the magazine? Maybe, it’s been suggested, because they were fighting over the gun and Zimmerman’s hand blocked the reloading. That is speculative, of course. But if the chamber was empty, either the gun was defective or something of the sort may have happened.
Zimmerman will go down for Manslaughter.
The Orlando Sentinel Hates Black People!
Thanks for the post.
Oh, I disagree. I think that is exactly what they are after, with Obama positioned as the only man that can bring it to an end (after November).
Knockout King. Sucker punched.
I’m really angry at Obama and the race haters who stirred up lynch mobs and an inane “national dialogue” over this.
IF we had to liste that “blacks are under attack” and “black dads have to have this talk with their sons”....
Then why if these facts prove out, can’t we say that we “are under attack BY blacks” or that at least hispanics are under attack, or at least hispanic neighborhood watch volunteers?
Because all of this racial generalization is insane and dangerous.
What percentage of young black males have a dad at home to talk to them? What percent of young black males commit crimes, take drugs, etc?
I’d like to live in the real world, not a world of leftist fantasy.
When Hollywood Stars and NBA players take up a cause, you can use that as a reliable indicator that whatever the even was , that thing has reached the height of stupidity, that we are quite far from the truth, and that things will begin to turn the other direction.
Do the police have pictures of Zimmerman’s face? My son recently got decked while he was working as a security guard on Mardi Gras night. Knocked him out and everything. The police took pictures of his face, which was pretty bloodied up. I’m just wondering if that was done in this case. It sure would help to prove Zimmerman’s story of what happened.
There are 5 Whites for every Black, and more Hispanics than Blacks. It wouldn’t even be close. I’d prefer it never happen though.
Or, IF Martin had grabbed the slide with his fingers around the slide and frame, the gun would have fired but failed to cycle.
It doesn’t? Of course it does. The left would love to start a race war, and by extension, anarchy. It would suit Obama very well to then order martial law.
I don't think so. Arrested maybe, but not convicted.
Has there been an autopsy report yet? That would solve the “shot in the back” claim. Of course, even without an autopsy, police can usually know facts like these. Has any of this been included in the reports made public?
Oh how about the one who claims Zimmerman's testimony is inadmissible because it is self serving?
And of course, the group that will say this is just Zimmerman's story, and there is no evidence to back it up.
Unfortunately it's not an account that the resident hangman wants to hear either............
But hey Alma, at least you can add this report to the other one you keep harping about......
I thought this was interesting. The innocent lad was suspended for drug possession in school.
By the way, the grown-up photo I saw yesterday (FB? Twitter?) of a 17-year-old Trayvon with gold teeth, tattoos, sleepless eyes, and an ugly expression, was a match, feature for feature, with the innocent-looking photo of a younger Travon now being circulated in the state-run media. Ears, nose, chin, even the shape of the upper teethquite distinctive, and they all match. It was like the portrait of Dorian Gray, what that kid had become.
You are missing the point. Think more of Watts riots in every city.
The Leftists will bet that most people are sheep, not fighters, and that they will just want protection.
"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel"
rather than a more appropriate and sequentially correct:
"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer, climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, before Zimmerman defended himself by shooting and killed the attacker, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel."
Rene immediately propagandizes some more:
"That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say."
Much?!? Just what in that statement from authorities has not been collaborated!?! Eventually Rene Stutzman gets down and dirty in her leftist media skankiness:
"Trayvon was an unarmed black teenager who had committed no crime, an innocent who was gunned down while walking back from a 7-Eleven with nothing more sinister than a package of Skittles and can of Arizona iced tea."
The crime, which cost Martin his life, was attacking Zimmerman so violently and viciously that Zimmerman had reasonable cause to fear for his life. On this story the media have flaunted their complete and utter fifth-column political whoredom.
These lefties in search of a publicity cause are disgraceful!
There is no way Zimmerman will get a fair trial if he is charged with any crime. If it’s a black jury, he’ll go down because of jury nullification. If it’s a white jury, they’ll either acquit because of the facts or convict because of either the facts or fear of reprisals. The best he can hope for is a plea. But that won’t satisfy the race baiters. They’ll accuse the prosecution of giving Zimmerman favorable treatment. And if Zimmerman would happen to go to prison, he’s a dead man. He’ll have to go into solitary. He needs to escape to Sweden or Upper Mongolia or somewhere like that.
What I mean is, they WANT to start a racial war, but not with Hispanics. In most cities Hispanics and black are enemies. They might try to push this, but the war will be Hispanics and Blacks, not Blacks and Whites.
They’ll just loot and destroy their own neighborhoods. All American cities are ruined due to inner city scum.
LOL—be patient, they’ll show up!
they have pictures of his bloody battered face, broken nose and gash in the back of his head that required stitches... this 17 year old, 6’2” 190# boy, that has recently been suspended for beating up a bus driver picked a fight with a man that was carrying...
Zimmerman got out of his SUV to follow Trayvon on foot.
This troubles me. Sorry, it just does. jmo.
Until a full inquiry and its results are released, this will be bubbling away for awhile.
“Friday, you wont hear about it again. It doesnt serve the lefts purpose; to start a racial war.”
It’s going to make me want to walk into a black church on a Sunday wearing a hoodie and laughing hysterically.
I doubt that he will. They have very little evidence and as of yet have been unable to effect an arrest much less an indictment and conviction.
They need white on black war, not hispanic on black. Then you will have blacks against hispanics and whites.
Where is the outrage when black young men are being murdered by other young black men? Many children are caught in the crossfire by drive by shootings in the urban areas, and many murders are being committed by 17 year old black “youths” that may look like Obama’s son. Why hasn’t there been outrage by black leaders over those?
