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.

Knockout King. Sucker punched.
I’m really angry at Obama and the race haters who stirred up lynch mobs and an inane “national dialogue” over this.
IF we had to liste that “blacks are under attack” and “black dads have to have this talk with their sons”....
Then why if these facts prove out, can’t we say that we “are under attack BY blacks” or that at least hispanics are under attack, or at least hispanic neighborhood watch volunteers?
Because all of this racial generalization is insane and dangerous.
What percentage of young black males have a dad at home to talk to them? What percent of young black males commit crimes, take drugs, etc?
I’d like to live in the real world, not a world of leftist fantasy.
When Hollywood Stars and NBA players take up a cause, you can use that as a reliable indicator that whatever the even was , that thing has reached the height of stupidity, that we are quite far from the truth, and that things will begin to turn the other direction.
Do the police have pictures of Zimmerman’s face? My son recently got decked while he was working as a security guard on Mardi Gras night. Knocked him out and everything. The police took pictures of his face, which was pretty bloodied up. I’m just wondering if that was done in this case. It sure would help to prove Zimmerman’s story of what happened.
There are 5 Whites for every Black, and more Hispanics than Blacks. It wouldn’t even be close. I’d prefer it never happen though.
Or, IF Martin had grabbed the slide with his fingers around the slide and frame, the gun would have fired but failed to cycle.
It doesn’t? Of course it does. The left would love to start a race war, and by extension, anarchy. It would suit Obama very well to then order martial law.
I don't think so. Arrested maybe, but not convicted.
Has there been an autopsy report yet? That would solve the “shot in the back” claim. Of course, even without an autopsy, police can usually know facts like these. Has any of this been included in the reports made public?
Oh how about the one who claims Zimmerman's testimony is inadmissible because it is self serving?
And of course, the group that will say this is just Zimmerman's story, and there is no evidence to back it up.
Unfortunately it's not an account that the resident hangman wants to hear either............
But hey Alma, at least you can add this report to the other one you keep harping about......
I thought this was interesting. The innocent lad was suspended for drug possession in school.
By the way, the grown-up photo I saw yesterday (FB? Twitter?) of a 17-year-old Trayvon with gold teeth, tattoos, sleepless eyes, and an ugly expression, was a match, feature for feature, with the innocent-looking photo of a younger Travon now being circulated in the state-run media. Ears, nose, chin, even the shape of the upper teethquite distinctive, and they all match. It was like the portrait of Dorian Gray, what that kid had become.
You are missing the point. Think more of Watts riots in every city.
The Leftists will bet that most people are sheep, not fighters, and that they will just want protection.
"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"
rather than a more appropriate and sequentially correct:
"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer, climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, before Zimmerman defended himself by shooting and killed the attacker, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel."
Rene immediately propagandizes some more:
"That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say."
Much?!? Just what in that statement from authorities has not been collaborated!?! Eventually Rene Stutzman gets down and dirty in her leftist media skankiness:
"Trayvon was an unarmed black teenager who had committed no crime, an innocent who was gunned down while walking back from a 7-Eleven with nothing more sinister than a package of Skittles and can of Arizona iced tea."
The crime, which cost Martin his life, was attacking Zimmerman so violently and viciously that Zimmerman had reasonable cause to fear for his life. On this story the media have flaunted their complete and utter fifth-column political whoredom.
These lefties in search of a publicity cause are disgraceful!
There is no way Zimmerman will get a fair trial if he is charged with any crime. If it’s a black jury, he’ll go down because of jury nullification. If it’s a white jury, they’ll either acquit because of the facts or convict because of either the facts or fear of reprisals. The best he can hope for is a plea. But that won’t satisfy the race baiters. They’ll accuse the prosecution of giving Zimmerman favorable treatment. And if Zimmerman would happen to go to prison, he’s a dead man. He’ll have to go into solitary. He needs to escape to Sweden or Upper Mongolia or somewhere like that.
