Skip to comments.Witnesses Back Up Zimmerman's Account Of Attack In Trayvon Martin Shooting, Police Say
Posted on 03/27/2012 5:32:25 AM PDT by Clint N. Suhks
With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the neighborhood watch volunteer who eventually shot to death the unarmed 17-year-old, then climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities told The Orlando Sentinel.
That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities said.

Your reply leads me to believe that you’re either stretching the truth a bit or you’re creating your own reality. Thank you for giving me my first lol of the day!
>>About ‘tapes’ ~ nobody uses tape anymore which is why we’ve been discussing the “recordings”. <<
Goodness, forgive me for being 51 and stuck in the 70’s. I’m sure you know what I mean.
>>You simply do a google.com search for ZIMMERMAN 911 RECORDINGS and you should get well over a million references to peruse. <<
I asked about Martin’s 911 “recording”.
I understand why he has the name he has...
I find it interesting that so many people are so willing to condemn Zimmerman without knowing the facts of the case. And the same people seem to be really desperate to hide the facts about Martin. They should correct it, otherwise it just looks like another excuse to riot.
The punk Trayvon got what he deserved. He took Skittles to a gun fight.
Just like the movie. Except in the movie the POTUS screwed a Girl Scout (although I believe they changed the name to “Firefly Girl”)
“None of this means that George Zimmerman is an innocent victim, however. He did provoke the confrontation.”
I'm not so sure about that. I suspect, like the movie “Wag the Dog” we'll never get the real truth: the race pimps and their MSM cronies are involved.
No, we are not debating my opinion ~ you are engaged in using this an opportunity for abusive language.
Tell it to the Administrator.
FIrst the Grand Jury.
The City Manger report gleaned from the police reports states, "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."
A grand jury would laugh you out of the grand jury room.
You should take note that if you physically assault someone you run the risk of picking on the wrong guy. This time it was a guy with a Concealed Carry permit. At that point race, age & size don’t matter too much. Unfortunately, Treyvon seems to think he had “no limits”, judging by his Twitter account name. He found out differently. I pray for his family AND the Zimmermans. Even without the media circus, Zimmermans life will never be the same. He will always remember the night he feared for his life to the point that he had to take another life.
old white people don’t count?
Obamacare will get the old ones outrageous the so they never get to 80.
You can discern his “frame of mind”? Thank you for that Karnak!
I'd imagine by now his lawyer has told him about saying things to the cops.
The Florida law is the issue ~ and that law certainly applied to Martin who was minding his own business and obeying the law at the time (virtually all those issues have been settled in the debates as additional information has come in about where he was going ~ to wit, to a townhouse in the development ~ to which he had a right to go).
We have a number of Freepers who seem to not believe that Martin was protected by the law ~ unfortunately.
Regarding the Twitter Account, there’s no confirmation from any responsible source that it belonged to this Trayvon.
Well, not everyone has your great luck of NOT being attacked in the wee hours of the morning.
Those who aren’t as fortunate are presented with a choice... fight or possibly die.
The eyewitness, John, who was closest to the attack, (it was right outside his window) said it was definitely Zimmerman calling for help. He saw and heard Zimmerman.
The loud bang was likely in the apartment of the caller, herself and the male in the apartment can be clearly heard moving around in the apartment making noise. I guess you are hinting at a second gun shot, that never happened.
I will rely on the eye AND ear witness, John, who was looking at what he was hearing, instead of an ear only witness, cowering in fear in her apartment, talking and making noise while ear witnessing.
From what I have read, it was a “wanted alive” posting.
Just read that one of their main people was arrested for carrying a firearm, and he is a convicted felon. I wonder how many of them have no arrest record at all.
