George Zimmerman's Sanford, Fla., neighbor, said the neighborhood watchman protected his residence from a potential burglary several weeks before the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
Frank Taaffe, a former neighborhood watch captain, told CNN that his house was in the process of being robbed on Feb. 2, but Zimmerman called Sanford police, who thwarted the robbery.
"My house was being robbed, and George on his nightly rounds watched this burglary in progress, called Sanford P.D., waited for them, and helped ensure that nothing bad happened to my house," Taaffe said. "And it's documented in the 911 call for February 2. That was my residence that George Zimmerman helped stop." Zimmerman shot and killed Martin on Feb. 26.
"Neighbor-hood, that's a great word," Taaffe said.
Taaffe said that "young black males" were the perpetrators in the attempted robbery of his home. "We had eight burglaries in our neighborhood all perpetrated by young black males in the 15 months prior to Trayvon being shot," Taaffe said. "It would have been nine."
Taaffe denied that he told the New York Times that burglaries were done by "Trayvon-like dudes with their pants down."
"I never said that," he said. "I never used that term."

Well, he could have. It would have been accurate. "Trayvon-like dudes" perpetrate crime and violence in our cities every stinking day.
I wonder if the national media is telling about this?? I guess blacks robbing white's homes aren't newsworthy, but a white shooting a black because he's being beaten up is!!
You have to expect burglaries and theft when the “kids” are being taught in our so called schools that if anyone has anything nice, it was stolen from those who don’t have anything. These thieves are just taking back what they have been told belongs to them. It’s a “hope and change” thing.
all of whom would have looked like you, barak Obama, if you'd have had a son.
There, fixed it.
How does one rob a home??
Which means you used that term according to the laws of the MSM.
BTW, they said Trayton had Iced tea and Skittles on him. Did he pay for it or rip it off? Show me the video tape of the store when he was there.
I meantion that because when someone shoplifts they are very paranoid afterwards which obviously he was.
“How does one rob a home??”
I think that the distinction may be that if someone breaks into a home that is not occupied at the time then it is considered a “burglary”. If the home is occupied at the time then it automatically becomes a “robbery”.
Fake, but accurate.
At common law, a “burglary” must happen at night.
Seems like Obama's sons are waging a massive crime spree in that particular neighborhood.
Well... I guess we are both half correct. Fl. Has a home invasion robbery charge and a burglary of occupied dwelling charge. The former involves a forceful taking.
“Trayvon-like dudes with their pants down.”
From now on I will refer to the currnet occupant of the White House as that “Trayvon-like dude.” Very descriptive phrase. In todays news, the Trayvon-like dude in the White House threatened the Supreme Court. The Trayvon-like dude in the White House attacked the Republicans.
“Taaffe said that “young black males” were the perpetrators in the attempted robbery of his home. “We had eight burglaries in our neighborhood all perpetrated by young black males in the 15 months prior to Trayvon being shot,” Taaffe said. “It would have been nine.””
It may have been 10 or 11 if Trayvon had not been stopped.
We should refer to Omoslem as “Trayvon Sr.”
I would not be surprised if the real reason he was walking around was to case houses for burglary.
“At common law, a burglary must happen at night.”
When you reference “common law” is that for Florida or all of the states?
For example, in Louisiana, laws are, more or less, based upon “Napoleonic” law. Not so in other states.
I like to learn.
