I notice in one report his height is given as 5’7”.
That’s an inch shorter than what I had understood.
There are folks claiming GZ attempted to physically detain TM until the police arrived and thereby initiated the confrontation.
To believe he would do that, given the possible 5”-8” difference in height, strains the imagination.
Imagine for a moment that Zimmerman was the one who had been shot and killed. Trayvon could conceivably be claiming that Zimmerman did attempt to detain Martin, by brandishing his gun.
Martin could further claim that Zimmerman was acting erratically and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. He would claim that Zimmerman used racial slurs.
Fearing for his life, Martin then claims that he attempted to disarm Zimmerman by grabbing for the gun. In lunging toward Zimmerman, they both fell to the ground. Martin managed to get on top of Zimmerman and was attempting to wrestle the gun away when it went off and killed Zimmerman.
Just as there would be no evidence to contradict Martin, there is today no evidence to contradict Zimmerman.
I understand that about half of all murders remain unsolved. It is all too common that there is not enough evidence to even identify a suspect, let alone win a conviction. We should not be too surprised, then, if nobody but Zimmerman ever knows the truth.
It was the best they had to offer. It is a major media case and the state is looking to prejudice the national jury pool.
