Posted on 03/26/2012 3:11:56 PM PDT by QT3.14
George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.

“In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman’s description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin. “
so now they are giving the names of minors who witnesses in the case....think this is a way for the race baiters to silence and intimidate the kid???
And momma said he was such a good boy.....and turning his life around.
The girlfriend probably knows more than she is saying.
Trayvon Martin was suspended from school because of marijuana. Was he selling to school friends? Did he go out for more than Skittles and iced tea the day he died, which is why his grilfriend told him to run from Zimmerman?
I sure hope the technicians did a thorough job of looking over the grounds at that community. Wonder if they found a baggie with marijuana in it.
>> “Trayvon Martin was suspended from school because of marijuana.” <<
No, according to his own brother, he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless.
drip..drip..drip..little pieces of info that were likely always available, but deseminated selectively by the press
to create the perception of martin being ‘gunned down for no reason.’ i stand by my theory that holder knows Zimmerman
wont be charged,knowing that when that announcement is made, all hell will break loose. we’re all pawns in their game, i guess.
Not only that, but according to the Miami Herold, Martin also wrote “WTF” in graffiti on his locker along with another boy. Also had women’s jewelry on him(Possibly from home burglaries) WOW what a model student and a upstanding citizen this chubby cheek kid is turning out to be
He wasn’t reaching for his gun, he just wanted to taste the rainbow of fruit flavors...
My mom's 88 and still says that about me. No one believes her.
It will be worth everyone’s time to go and read the comments associated with this article. They are almost unanimous in their disgust with the media.
CSI Sanford? Uh, don’t think so.
If Martin has initiates the incident, Zimmerman would have pulled his gun before Martin would have gotten close to him.
Also possibly payment from students who raided mama's bling box to pay for the weed they was buyin' from Trayvon.
Of course, this is pure speculation on my part.
Of course he had to be selling to friends or why else take pot in a baggie to school? If you just wanted to get high you do it before school or after, or if you’re a real loser you’d sneak out and get high during the day but in that case you’d just sneak a joint in your locker or something.
Having pot in a baggie is def a sign he was selling or maybe bringing it for someone as a nice gift, you know?
Feel free to find in the article where the AP identified the race of the possible suspects.......waiting.....waiting....tapping foor.....crickets......
6’3”, and only 150 pounds? That’s pretty skinny! Doesn’t mean a thing though. He played football? What position? Goal post?
When I eat Skittles, I likes to keep it real...knowI’msayin?
This case is amazing! Mr.Martin was shot in the chest - No! Trayvon was shot in the back of the head!!
Mr. Martin was suspended for ten days because the school found an empty plastic bag with scant remains of marijuana - No! Trayvon’s brother says, “he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless”.
Hmm...I find the story of the beaten bus driver unlikely, because such a violent crime would have landed Trayvon Martin in juvenile detention rather than being released to the custody of his father.
I’m curious to know why Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend urged him to run away from Zimmerman. If Martin had a right to be there, then he had no reason to run and could have told Zimmerman who he was staying with at that community. But he did not do so. Why?
People with gold teeth and tattoo's deserve to be killed. This is a free country!!!
Wait a minute, I thought he was suspended for 5 (five, or fi, as he would say it) days for tardiness!
6’ 2’’ I heard, and 160 pounds. Or 200 pounds, I also heard.
That was a lie spread by his family and media.
(are we related ? ;-)
“so now they are giving the names of minors who witnesses in the case....think this is a way for the race baiters to silence and intimidate the kid???”
On what basis?
You can’t pull a gun on an unarmed man that isn’t attacking you?
That is assault with a deadly weapon.
Is it me or does “Taste The Rainbow” sound gay?
No, violent criminals beating your face in do, however.
Boy, if I had a dollar for every idiot in America, I’d have at least one for you...
Depends on if it was a scuffle or a full-on beating.
We won’t know anything until the forensic reports collaborates Mr. Zimmerman’s testimony and statements.
It sounds quite gay. I heard Liberace and Rock Hudson were big Skittles eaters.
Need source, please!
What I was sent:
“No, according to his own brother, he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless”.
Could have started as a scuffle, but beating someone “senseless”...I don’t think that is a minor administrative problem but rather a criminal issue involving battery.
The more we learn, the worse it looks for the choirboy who was merely visiting his father.
I’m asking everyone to refrain from responding to my posts on this case from previous days, now and in the future, meaning posts from today and future days. Our knowledge changes daily. A tragedy is becoming a tragi-comedy.
Uhm, both of them were married.
I think his girlfriend urged him to “go kick his ass” and that initiated the fatal ending.
It's not like that hasn't happened before, and I remember reading about a black woman telling her boyfriend in line at I think a fast food restaurant to “kick his ass”, referring to another man in line and it ended up in a fatality.
Gee, idle speculation can bring about all kinds of wild theories!
Umm, both were gay.
When this all gets out will his new daddy Hussein hold a marijuana summit?
He was being considered for advanced admission to M.I.T.’s Graduate School Majoring in Physics, with a minor in Astrophysics.
Your request, past and future, now and then, when and how, is becoming a bit of a refrain.
Based on this kids behavior, I'm beginning to think that Martin was on track to one day be knocked off by one of da brothas' in da Hood.
I’m sure that the police have videotape of Mr.Martin buying Skittles and iced tea. I’m sure they have the times when Mr.Martin and his girlfriend talked on the cell phone.
If Mr.Martin was gone for longer than it took to buy the candy and drink, and he was talking to the girlfriend in Miami the whole time, she knows far more than she has let on publicly. And the police may be aware of that.
