Skip to comments.Witness describes Zimmerman's injuries, phone call to wife
Posted on 06/28/2013 9:39:06 AM PDT by Faith Presses On
A resident of the Florida community where George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin last year after a confrontation took the stand Friday and described going out to investigate a noise and seeing one person straddling another and throwing punches down at the person on the ground.
John Good said he was watching TV with his wife when they heard a noise and he went out to investigate, despite his wife warning him not to. At first, he thought a dog might be attacking someone, but as he moved closer, he said he observed what looked like "a tussle" between two people.
"It looked like a tussle," Good said. "I could only see one person. At one point, I yelled out, 'What's going on? Stop it,' I believe," Good said.
Under questioning by Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda, Good said one of the combatants was straddling a man lying face up on the pavement, and throwing punches. The testimony appeared to corroborate Zimmerman's claims that he shot the 17-year-old African-American with a legally registered gun in self defense, as he was being pummeled.

Prosecution will next, test the witness for color-blindness.
I’m watching that trial and that man sealed the innocence of Zimmerman. He was totally great. He saw a man in all black on top of a man with red on his coat and the man on top was striking down with his hands. The man on the bottom also had lighter skin than the man on top.
We KNOW this is the case.
No human being, in a situation where they are aggressing another person, is going to be astride the victim yelling for help. Likewise, no human being, after being in a fight-or-flight situation, is going to be shoot someone lying on their back and then deliberately break their nose and bash their head on concrete to fake the injuries Zimmerman had. That’s absolutely sheer lunacy.
Occam’s Razor is at play in this trial. I hope the jury sees it the same way.
Prosecution will bring in a mixed martial arts expert to testify that being on your back getting your head punched and slammed on the ground is actually an aggressive position of great advantage.
Maybe the prosecutor can go to work handling accident cases for some shady law firm that you see ads for on late night TV on the local channels.
I always tell me students (future LE agents) that a prosecutor won’t bring a case to trial without good, solid evidence, but this case sure proves me wrong.
How is a little twelve-year-old kid gonna do that?
what am i missing? do what?
Wonder if Twitter will still be so full of death tweets towards Zimmerman now that this is out.........
Is it streamed on the internet? Where? Thanks.
"This witness's comments supporting the Defendant are now 'thrown out'.
This witness can read cursive ....
and is thus no possible use to this Court's agenda."
Funny, Rachel aka DeeDee aka Diamond Eugene testified under oath that Travon told her he put his hoodie up, as he was walking through the complex on the way home, because it was raining.
Was it raining inside the 7-11 as well?
Get ready for an onslaught of photoshopped photos from the media and/or the (In)Justice Dept. showing Zimmerman with dark skin and Obamma’s son with mulatto light skin.
The ‘Roos dey make me laff (in non cursive)
This shouldn’t be that complicated. You have one man with his face beat in and his head bashed in, and you have another with no bruises. Which one is the aggressor?
That be called an AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PUMMELING, by the RACISTS ON THE LEFT. This case should be all over. This testimony with the photos EXACTLY MATCHES WHAT ZIMMERMAN told from the beginning.
Can we place bets on whether its real or not?....CNN is a hearing impaired ear witness
Slightly biased, wouldn’t you say?...............
we need more experts to testify to answer that question
A sufficiently stupified jury might hang, but it couldn’t convict Zimmerman. Not with this.
“But Trayvon was just a tiny little twelve-year-old...”
He wasn’t just a tiny little twelve-year-old.
Look at his girlfriend.
He was a tiny and BLIND twelve-year-old.
I’m watching it on TV on Headline News channel. There are also streaming websites. Maybe someone will put one on here. A radio station in Florida is one that has streaming.
That male witness was so calm and declarative - he knew what he saw. He was so fine.
I really haven’t followed the trial very closely. Can someone explain why this witness would be called by the prosecution?
“You have one man with his face beat in and his head bashed in, and you have another with no bruises. Which one is the aggressor?”
The black did have cuts/bruises - the autopsy stated that - cuts/bruises ON BOTH KNUCKLES.
This case dismissed yet?
The Huffington Post ended its coverage of Good’s testimony with the “What’s going on? Stop it” line. NOTHING was said about the person on the bottom being a lighter color.
Filthy, dishonest leftwing cockroaches.
The trial just ended. Floridians need to start collecting ammo now.
Read this and the comments below it about the hostile witness from yesterday rachel jeantel, your freakin’ head will spin. If a window comes up asking you to subscribe just refresh the page.
Actually, person on bottom had face facing upwards and would have more light on it. In limited light, the person on top would be facing down and have his face in less light.
Two equal complexions would appear as stated.
The witness also said the person on the bottom had red on his coat and the man on top had on all black.
Zimmerman’s coat had red on it.
I wonder what he saw in her and what she saw in him. Is it possible that he was trading jewelry for her substantial favors? Note: out of consideration for her privacy, I'm putting this in cursive. I wouldn't want her to read my post and be embarrassed.
and cuts, bruises, abrasions, etc to the face and posterior skull. The other guy, the darker skinned one, had injuries to his knuckles and a fatal gun shot wound. Do the math.
That would be a relevant observation in a confrontation between people with equal complexions, which this case was not.
The prosecution got the statement of John Good and new exactly what he was going to say. If they didn’t call him the defense would have and then they could accuse the prosecution of hiding the most important witness.
Witnesses like this are the best the prosecution has.
They are relying entirely on fear of riots for any hope of a conviction at all.
This is a political show trial.
Most other days as well.
“Look at his girlfriend.
He was a tiny and BLIND twelve-year-old.”
And, she was saving him for her next meal.
Can this witness read letters in cursive that he has written himself?
A ‘tussle’? Is that like a scuffle? From Zimmerman’s injuries it looked more like a ‘beat-down’.
Treyvon was a thug. Self defense. Innocent.
This case against Zimmerman never should have been brought, and if acquitted I hope he sues the appropriate people for malicious prosecution and violation of his civil rights.
“Can this witness read letters in cursive that he has written himself?”
Just to keep things straight. It is known, and acknowledged that Rachel The Hut did not write that letter. A “friend” of hers wrote it for her. But,,,, she probably can’t even print.
I thought it was claimed that she wrote it? Not the case?
I like to be accurate about things so thanks for letting me know.
