George Zimmerman's dad says Travyon told his son, 'You're gonna die now'
MSNBC ^ | March 29, 2012 | Staff

On FOX Orlando Wednesday evening, Robert Zimmerman, the father of the man who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, said his son was the victim. He said that Martin told George Zimmerman, "You're gonna die now, or you're gonna die tonight."

“George was going to the store, and he saw someone in his community that he did not recognize as living there,” Robert Zimmerman, a retired judge, said. “Because there had been a lot of break-ins in the area, he thought that was suspicious that someone would not be walking on the street or the sidewalk, but they'd be walking right behind the townhomes.”

Robert Zimmerman said that his son, George Zimmerman, 28, then called a non-emergency number to report this stranger. He lost sight of the teen as he looked for an address to report to police, Robert Zimmerman told the FOX affiliate....

Thank you for reminding me of that's just very difficult to grasp the level these people will go and that without an ounce of shame or who gets hurt as they go about their agenda for power and control.

They are willfully blind IMO...and yes man's nature is bent on evil without Christ....but I have not seen it so paraded before us and that with pride and arrogance so blatantly. But then they "Do strut their evil before you" as is written. Which then makes me think..."when the wicked come to power men go into hiding".....I read a commentary on that...basically saying they cease activities of commerce, of works etc. and prosperity comes slowly to a hault.

Thank you for your post....And even if they do think the end justifies the means and excuses their actions in their own minds....I find it much hard to hope ...for them. And not sure I can anymore....not sure I want to.....

Just what was reported - he call the police first - moments before and told them about some guy he was concerned about. Police wanted to know the address he was in front of then, he didn’t know. But for them to call him when they get there and gave them directions to and into this community.

Zimmerman was going to his car and the kid attacked him from behind, is what I read. The kid said something to him - like ‘do you have a problem?’, he answered ‘no’, and the kid responded with something like ‘you do now’.

My apologies that you had to have the grandiose, grandstanding Schmuck-in-Chief up there in your 2nd Infantry Div. direction the other day, near the DMZ—using our US and ROK troops as back-props for his reelection again. However, I realize, if you are active duty military, you cannot reply to me in kind along these lines. Keep the faith, thanks for the work you do in the Land of Kimchi and Makkoli.

Well, Kings marches did indeed go on for sometime....maybe Sharpton thinks he’s going to be the new “King”.

Oh I can’t see this adminsitration doing aything but encouraging it.....even if behind closed doors. They did the same thing with the OWS crowd....anything to keep the people of that nature “occupied”. Give them a cause to take their minds off their problems with this admnistration...and all will go much smoother as Obama makes his plays.

Very interesting Fred...good work getting these police reports. Looks like in order for Martin to be facedown with hands underneath him he would have been on top of Zimmerman when the shot was fired.

What I don’t understand is why Trayvon didn’t just run away? If I’m walking with my skittles and ice tea and some guy in a truck is watching me, I’d either call the cops myself or high tail it out of there if I were an innocent kid. Or even myself, a woman.

Thanks for posting that. I had not read it as I’ve been busy listening to SCOTUS audio and reading the transcripts.

IDK if he was the same way in real life or not, but on Twitter - Trayvon Martin was a despicable human being.

(Note to libtards who will twist my words: No that doesn’t mean he should’ve died simply for being despicable.)

any violence from this with burning and robbing etc will only finally drive the rest of the stupid white voters back to the center....nothing like street violence to make people made...

I hope Z sues the heck out of these media types like nancy grace trying to lynch him for no crime whatsoever...

When will the information be made public that Trayvon was found with women’s jewelry and a screwdriver?

Your statement got me thinking. Some few blacks seem to have been shaking off the brainwashing of Hope & Change and some who are just losing interest. The Dems saw this opportunity to politicize the killing of yet another black youth, never mind they die by the dozens every day from efforts of their own race, to get those blacks back on the plantation. The Dems are greedily slavering over the fact that the accused is part white, forget his Mestizo part, which is making this all the more attractive to the black base.

He may have 95% of that voting block nailed down - no matter what - but the trick is to get them motivated to show up to the polls in November. If the Dems can motivate 70+% of this voting block to show up to the polls by waving a bloody shirt, as opposed to the normal 20% - expect them to wave the bloody shirt.

Exactamundo bump.

In 1998, Bill Clinton nearly got out of impeachment by doing a below-the-radar campaign to spike up the black vote. It worked -- the black turnout was up 60% over 1996 (well, at least the votes cast went up, how's that?) -- but not quite well enough.

As it was, the Republicans who had actually been expecting an increase in House seats (this was a by-election in Clinton's second term, and he was in impeachment proceedings) ended up losing about 8 seats, which was a total surprise to all of them. It cost Newt Gingrich his job as Speaker (along with the book thing, but this was the last straw), and he resigned his Speakership and his House seat shortly thereafter.

Had Clinton succeeded, impeachment would have been quashed on election night, and he would now be celebrated on the Left as the Great Extricator who slimed, then beat, then humiliated the Republicans despite their historic 1994 victory on the merits of the issues.

Ineresting and challenging era for the European tribe, that’s for sure. In the past, when pushed to the wall, they have rallied and come through.

There are some that either:

- cannot evolve


- choose not to evolve

either way some remain subhuman savages

- not smart when outnumbered 9 to 1 as others still arrive and adapt and prosper and are thankful for America

they often choose to abort their unborn babies in growing numbers

- hardly a sign of biped primates of advanced intelligence

Very interesting Fred...good work getting these police reports.

Echo bump. I read them all, and they pretty well establish that G.Z. was bleeding when the police first arrived, and that the Sanford FD EMS technicians attended to his bleeding. You would think that ABC would review these reports before going wide with the "revelation" that SPD station video shows G.Z. *NOT* bleeding (stop presses!) when he arrived there -- and therefore his story about being attacked is bullshine!

Good one, ABC News! (They were touting those videotapes overnight on their "news" program [nonstop feminine-products ads, etc. etc.].)

Never, never, never forget that our President advised his relative to do that.

I have never seen this charge before. Could you give a source link or something? If true, it's utterly, utterly damning. It makes Obama, if true, the kind of bloodthirsty "postcolonial" kleptocrat that East African critics have said he is, and a "typical" Stalinist -- like Pol Pot, Kheiu Samphan, and the rest of the Cambodge butchers.

They want unrest that they can somehow blame on Conservatives.

The all-volunteer military began in 1973. No one in the military by 1980 was there without having re-enlisted (voluntarily, of course), even the conscripts.

Interesting that the interviewer was D. Singleton, not Chris Serino.

The one who interviewed Zimm did NOT call for an arrest but some other guy, who was NOT the interviewer, did.

We’ll see riots this summer. It will all start in Florida-Trayvon Martin.

Never have we had a purely evil man in our White House. Now we do.
