Please provide a link to an eyewitness sttement that says so.
2) Martin was also a good six inches taller than Zimmerman and thought hed just take the lil nosy man out for disrespecting him by daring to question what he was up too walking around the gated community".
Oh, you know what Martin was thinking? Now guess what I'm thinking...
The charges will be dismissed. This will happen near the election. The charges were filed knowing full well they will be dismissed.
From what has come out, Zimmerman lost sight of Martin and headed back to his vehicle. Only an idiot would think that Zimmerman initiated physical contact with a larger young stud than himself while carrying a concealed weapon. His history of contacting authorities instead of initiating contact implies he wanted the LEOs to do their job in a neighborhood that had been victimized for some time.
Agree the other poster muffed it with presuming to know Martin's thoughts, but those condemning Zimmerman and insisting he initiated physical contact are conjuring that data from thin air too.
From what the public has been privy to, the odds that Zimmerman's story is the most factual are far greater than other "versions".
Well, we don't have the eyewitness statements, of course, but according to Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump, it was Martin's girlfriend "DeeDee" who reported that she heard Martin begin the conversation. This has been quite widely reported - here, for example. An excerpt:
She said the next thing she heard was Martin saying, Why are you following me? Then, Crump said, she heard another voice presumably Zimmermans saying, What are you doing around here?You can question DeeDee's (or Crump's) credibility, I suppose, but it seems unlikely either would want to support Zimmerman's story.
