Skip to comments.Police: Zimmerman says Trayvon decked him with one blow then began hammering his head

With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel.
That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say.
Zimmerman has not spoken publicly about what happened, but that night, Feb. 26, and in later meetings he described and re-enacted for police what he says happened.
In his version of events, he had turned around and was walking back to his SUV when Trayvon approached him from behind, the two exchanged words then Trayvon punched him in the nose, sending him to the ground, and began beating him.

Keep in mind, Norm, that Trayvon was unknown to Zimmerman and acting suspiciously or on drugs and dressed like a thug while walking through Zimmerman’s neighborhood that had several burglaries recently.
If I was Zimmerman I would have probably followed Trayvon, too.
“Crime Watch volunteers are NOT supposed to carry a weapon.”
Funny. I just checked our Neighborhood Watch by-laws and I see nothing there prohibiting lawful carry.
And everyone knows a bullshitter when they see one..........
How about letting us know what that information you acquired is?
“There’s video of that but never mind.”
I tend to agree. Occasionally I have to go into the senseless murder districts. I learned long ago not to turn my back on no one, and trust no one.
Video is at facebook. There are pro Trayvon sites at facebook and guess what? They are not racist. When I come to Fr and get slammed for my belief that a minor was the victim of wrongful death, my ambition to share is muted.
acting suspiciously or on drugs and dressed like a thug
not too closely.
was he casing houses or lost and stoned and just looking for his dad’s condo?
The kid seems to keep growing....
I don't see where you're going with this accusation that Zimmerman's dad got this out. The media is looking for every scrap of information they can, and officials have been speaking off the record because some may want to correct the impression that this kid Martin was some kind of choir boy, whereas the truth is that Zimmerman was a literal choir boy.
“Zimmermans gotten a pass so far. “
Let’s see. . .with the NBP’s $10,000 bounty on his head (”Dead or Alive”), relentless pounding by the MSM, as well as being found guilty and in no need of a trial according to some. (You, apparently, would have a fair trial and then hang him).
Other than the death threats and possibly having to go into some sort of witness protection, not only for him BUT for his family as well. . .I guess you are right. . .he is getting a “pass.”
See. Just a kid out having a little fun when==BAM!==some racist shoots him just because he’s beating him on the head./s
I’ve read other reports that said it was an “empty baggie” with marijuana inside. What the hell is a “baggie”?
I was surfing and it was attached to an article as a comment.
First of all, why do you refer to the shooter by his last name but the victim by his first name?
Second, why do you say he was a “guest” of the HOA? I’m a member of an HOA and I’ve never seen one person invite someone into the neighborhood.
Third, I wouldn’t be so quick to condemn unless I’d walked in the man’s shoes or heard FACTUAL evidence.
He had the ability imo to scrub George’s priors”
Tell me again about “scrubbing” his record. . .if it was scrubbed, then there would be no record and nothing to see.
His record is there for all to see.
Why isn’t little-miss-innocents record open. . .like his record of assaulting his bus driver? How about his family posting RECENT pictures of him, rather than one where is is a little 13-yr old?
Look, as I’ve gone through this thread it has become clear you are delusional and have your pitchfork at the ready and the torches burning. No need for an investigation as it would be pointless. You KNOW what happened.
What are you. . . 15?
Have a nice day.
