Been on wiki for a while.
So the back of Zimmermans shirt was wet and covered in grass.
He was bleeding from the nose and back of his head.
That sounds like an assault occurred prior to the shooting to me.
Sounds like there was some kind of physical confrontation.
With Farrakhn jumping all over this, we might have another Al Sharpton/Tawana Brawley situation on our hands.
Be ready for riots when Zimmerman is let go.
It’s been several years since the last great riots ... guess it’s time for new TVs, what with all the new advances in technology and all.
“If Zimmerman was told not to continue to follow Trayvon, can that be considered in this investigation?
Yes it will; however, the telecommunications call taker asked Zimmerman are you following him. Zimmerman replied, yes. The call taker stated you dont need to do that. The call takers suggestion is not a lawful order that Mr. Zimmerman would be required to follow. Zimmermans statement was that he had lost sight of Trayvon and was returning to his truck to meet the police officer when he says he was attacked by Trayvon.”
This is exactly why I’m not rushing to any kind of judgement. The evidence needs to come out before the verdict is passed down. There’s a reason the PD hasn’t filed charges against Zimmerman.
While I won’t exclude the idea that Zimmerman might be some class of racist who just wanted to target black folks, I’ll need some kind of evidence first.
Believe it or not, Al Sharpton and Imam Farrakhan’s bombast is not, in fact, evidence.
There is a lot of truth to that. I was in the NG in Memphis for the 1978 Fireman's Strike Riots. It was ten years after the MLK Riots. The TV stores were the first to get hit. Let them riot, the NG is better trained and equipped and many of them have served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. It won't be pretty.
When Oakland, CA merchants start getting out the plywood, you'll know the time is near!
From reading the reports and listening to the 911 calls this is basically what happened.
Mr. Zimmerman was coming back or heading out to do so errands when he sees a suspicious Black guy walking in his gated community. There had been some recent burglaries in the community or in a neighborhood very close by so Mr. Zimmerman thought the suspicious Black guy might be one of them. Mr. Zimmerman follows him a bit and Trayvon notices and doesn’t like it and stares at Mr. Zimmerman. Trayvon then starts walking and Mr. Zimmerman gets out and follows him by foot. All this time Mr. Zimmerman is on the phone to 911 reporting what he is seeing.
Trayvon starts running and Mr. Zimmerman loses sight of him. Mr. Zimmerman ends his call with 911. At this point Mr. Zimmerman walks back to his truck but is jumped by Trayvon. Trayvon is on top of him beating the crap out of Mr. Zimmerman while Mr. Zimmerman is yelling help as loud as he can. On one of the 911 calls you can hear him yelling over and over. No one in the neighborhood goes to help Mr. Zimmerman because they are all too scared to do so.
Mr. Zimmerman realizes no one is coming to help so he does what he has to do to protect his life which is to pull his gun. He fires on round which turns out to be fatal and Trayvon dies. Cops show up shortly and secure the scene and process it.
