The story that Trayvon Martin was “only” walking home is fiction, and we know this because of the recording of Zimmerman’s 911 telephone call. When you read the transcript of the 911 call, note the elapsed time in comparison to the transcript, and compare that timeline to the Google maps aerial view of the complex; you can see how Trayvon Martin evaded observation, bypassed his residence, and doubled back to confront and attack Zimmerman. There can be no truth to the claim Trayvon Martin was unable to walk home because Zimmerman attacked him, because Trayvon Martin was already at his residence when he returned up the sidewalk to confront Zimmerman.
AS the 911 recording indicates, Trayvon Martin walked directly by Zimmerman’s vehicle, and he proceeded down the street and on to a sidewalk between the buildings that led to the city street on the other side. He then turned to the right and went down the sidewalk paralleling the city street as he passed around the corner of the building and out of Zimmerman’s view. This observed and recorded fact is a problem, because Trayvon obviously did not turn to the right onto the street and sidewalk on the near side of the buildings that led directly to his residence. if Trayvon martin wanted to walk directly home, he would not have bypassed the street and sidewalk leading to it in order to take a more distant route on the outside of the building complex.
Now some people are trying to argue that Trayvon Martin didn’t turn right and go down the street and sidewalk to the front door or rear door of his own residence becausee he was being followed by Zimmerman and did not want to lead Zimerman to his residence. Such an argument makes no sense whatsoever, because Trayvon Martin doubled back past his residence to the place where he attempted to kill or injure Zimmerman.
When Zimmerman left his vehicle to follow Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin passed out of view as he went arond the corner of the building complex. By the time Zimmerman reached that corner of the building complex to where he could look down that city street and sidewalk, Trayvon Martin was already out of view. based upon the time lapse recorded by the 911 call, the only explanation for Zimmerman being unable to see Trayvon Martin from his position on the sidewalk at the corner of the building is that Trayvon Martin had already started to doubleback by either run down the sidewalk to run around the far end of the building complex or had run part way down the sidewalk and ducked out of view as he ran between a gap int he buildings of the complex.
Unable to see Trayvon Martin and following the instructions of the 911 dispatcher, Zimmerman turned around an reeversed his steps to return to his vehicle. As he dis so, immerman was passing by the sidewalk that led down between the lines of buildings in the complex in their rear. This is the same sidewalk that led down to the residence where Trayvon Martin was staying. If Trayvon Martin had wanted to esacape Zimmerman, he had already done so as evidenced by the 911 call. Trayvon Martin was already in the vicinity of his residence, and he could have quite easily entered his residence in complete safety without Zimmerman having any opportunity to observe him doing it. Instead, Trayvon Martin for some reason chose to not enter his residence, and he chose to leave the vicinity of his resdence and come in the opposite direction up the sidewalk to intercept Zimmerman as Zimmerman was returning to his vehicle.
Trayvon Martin appoached Zimmerman from the direction of his residence, which was no behind Trayvon Martin, and he chalenged Zimmerman wanting to know why Zimmerman had been following him a few minutes earlier. This challenge diverted Zimmerman from returning to his vehicle and caused him to meet Trayvon Martin on the sidewalk running behind the lines of the residences n the building complex. It was here that the fatal confrontaion took place.
It is clear from the 911 recording that the only reason Trayvon martin did not enter his residence in safety was because he chose to not do so, and he instead sought to meet with and confront George Zimmerman. The storyline that Zimmerman kept Trayvon Martin from walking home is a complete fairy tale.
Zimmerman left his vehicle to follow Zimmerman? (I know, I know. Just couldn’t resist it)
