Skip to comments.Police: Zimmerman says Trayvon decked him with one blow then began hammering his head
Posted on 03/26/2012 8:41:12 AM PDT by maggief
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.

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.
I know this will come as a surprise to one as young as you, many of us don’t live on, or are a member of, FB.
Based upon your postings, pardon me if I insist upon a link for proof as your word is hardly credible.
So you’re saying that Zimmerman’s dad was a state judge in Virginia 20 years ago, 700 miles and 4 states away, but he has good local Florida police connections? I think that’s a stretch.
Why wouldn’t his dad have ties to the local police dept? He’s STILL an attorney. You’re not from the legal profession are you? I can tell.
I’m your personal concierge of links? It’s at Justice for Trayvon at facebook and they generate posts that are quite tame. If I see the video when I’m over there, I’ll copy the link. I’m not making a special trip. There’s another thread on George Zim’s dad. I put that link on this thread. Daddy is telling the media he is retired military but for some reason, doesn’t want o mention that he’s a current attorney in Fla. Dad’s an omitter.
Yes, and George was a perfect altar boy in Virginia. lol I bet he was always up to no good. I don’t live on facebook but it serves a purpose.
Nah. . I just can’t revert to juvenile-speak.
Have a nice day.
A local attorney would have an adversarial relationship with the local police department.
I've read that VANITY and there is no linked evidence of what you claim. FWIW, it is also stated that his father is a retired military person but yet no information on his rank or how many years he spent in the service and in what capacity.
Furthermore, you attempt to cite DU as a reliable source of the crap you are posting. That in itself should get your sorry ass banned........
Bottom line is that DU does occasionally have factual data. The problem is that in many cases, they dig up irrelevant data, or draw illogical conclusions from the data.
I read that Zimmerman left the country. (not worth copying and pasting). Here’s a link summary and apparently, the Black Panthers had an epic fail. Only 9 people signed up for their stupid deal.
When you come to FR and make statements about private investigations you are involved in but can't divulge what you claim to know, it's no wonder you have a lack of ambition...........It goes hand in hand with your total lack of credibility.
This is a forum and you are not in charge of free speech for Amerika. If you call me a sorry ass again, I’ll report abuse.
Man, you jump to a lot of conclusions. He had the ability to scrub George’s priors? Do you have info that he did this? His daddy got Martin’s record released? Again, do you have info he did that?
Sounds like you hate judges.
You are baiting me so that I'll say something bad and get banned. We are done as of right now.
That's how it works apparently. George Zimmerman is free to be ignorant and I'm free to distrust judges.
Please don't report abuse, you may not like the response. Thanks.
Why is Zimmerman free to be ignorant but you are only free to distrust? Aren’t you, too, free to be ignorant?
And you can deny it all you want but you STRONGLY suggested his daddy, a retired judge, scrubbed his son’s record and released “Trayvon’s” record.
It’s no only obvious you hate judges, it’s also obvious you hate people named Zimmerman. And you may even suffer a little from white guilt.
Any person who cites Democratic Underground and Justice for Trayvon at facebook as reliable sources of information here on FreeRepublic is a sorry ass troll and should be banned from this site.........
My husbands an attorney. He doesn’t have any ties to the local police dept. I can tell you’re not from the legal profession.
You’ve posted too much and given yourself away. You may as well start referring to him as “perfect little Trayvon”. And the other one as “that mean old gun toting white (with a little bit of Hispanic) Nazi Zimmerman. His name even sounds like a gun toting Nazi.”
The Dump never has factual information.
Any person who cites and links to Democratic Underground and Justice for Trayvon at facebook as reliable sources of information here on FreeRepublic is a sorry ass troll and should be banned from this site.........
I didn't pick the names in this travesty. I remember you from the money scandal days of the late nineties. You've changed. I haven't.
Seems to me this is a forum, not a courtroom. I'm not ignorant, Mross. A minor was shot and that is called "wrongful death". If they would arrest George Z. and find him innocent, he would still be liable for a wrongful death action. It's going to either be criminal or civil kind of like OJ who offended again and is in a jail right now for a long time.
sandwich size glad bag unless they changed marijuana since the seventies.
I don’t think you’re the only person on this forum who has black neighbors.
You said Zimmerman is free to be ignorant. I said you are free to be ignorant, too. I didn’t say you are ignorant. Though I do have an oppinion.
Money scandal days from the 90s? I wasn’t on freerepublic in the 90s and according to your profile neither were you.
If a minor comes at you with a knife and you shoot him is that “wrongful death”? Man, you’re out there!
Finally, I guess you’re saying that since OJ committed another crime you expect Zimmerman to do the same. Again, WAY out there!
You want me to type George? What difference would that make? I don't remember you being so psychoanalytical. It's not working. I'm looking forward to the DA's memorandum and the grand jury's findings. A minor is dead. Let's investigate that, okay? That's what I'm sayin'.
I have black neighbors and guess what? They are just like us but the ones that live by me, got out of the bad neighborhoods and when they talk about getting out, I’m glad they’re out.
What does that mean? “They’re just like us”
That reads like you believe that you are giving the backwards racists a lesson. That you are enlightened.
If I were black, I would be somewhat offended by your comment.
You sound snobbish.
“”The truth is starting to get out”
We still don’t know “The Truth”....but at least other side is now getting a hearing.”
The evidence & witinesses support the story of events that show “Obama’s son” beating the crap out of his poor man before justly getting shot by the man in self-defense.
Someone recenetly made this same point - or one very similar; I think on a Breitbart thread. AFPhys' idea is excellent for online activism. I'm no good at this stuff (no time either) but I know plenty of freepers are good at tech stuff. I think a vanity about doing this would be an excellent idea. Who else to ping?
...about Nov 5th or so.
(let’s hear from all of the freepers who were sympathetic to the hoodied thug)
Is following someone on the street a crime? I would have done the same thing.
If it is, please show me the statute.
No need for an all out race war. Obama simply needs to shore up the black vote before the election. This will do nicely.
Noted that myself. They can’t report facts, we need the narrative so we know how to react.
Friend of mine shared this on his FB page.
After a week or more of “lynch Zimmerman” “racial profiler” “dead or alive”, now the revolting call I’ve seen go up is to “stop demonizing Trayvon”. What ridiculous racist imbeciles! Thanks sickoflibs.
I think the Left Wing Racist Black Rush2Judgement Crowd needs to recieve a little return fire...........
Time to start the ....
