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.

This is so out of control. I was watching how many people showed up in my city yesterday for some march for the boy. All I could think of when seeing the huge crowd was that this has snowballed sl badly that these folks won't be happy until Zimmerman is dead.
If you have ever been to the Sanford hospital, you might see a bit of a problem here.
How long is Zimmerman supposed to let Trayvon beat on him before he gets to defend himself?
Liberals think it is morally superior to be the victim of a crime rather than defend yourself.
I think it was all that sugar in the Skittles and tea.
You're right, I don't. You don't actually have to be dying to use your right to self-defense. That would be sort of pointless, wouldn't it. The purpose of the right to self-defense is that you can use it if you're fearful for your life.
But, then, I can tell you don't want to see that, either.
Precisely, Travis. Thank you.
Your move, muawiyah. Time to defend your nonsense.
New Black Panthers have a reward out for Zimmerman’s capture.
Capture? You mean KIDNAPPING?
If Eric Holder had any cojones he’d speak out about them.
That Sir is in the very top contenders for stupidest posts of the year.
Are you serious with this post? The guy didn’t have a right to defend himself?
If so, you are one sick puppy.
Yet, wandering around downtown at 2AM was part of my job off and on for many years, and not just downtown, the part where they kept the main post office. And not just any downtown either, but the big city downtown districts.
Never once got attacked.
I recall this trip to Cleveland where I noticed the cops kept their windows up in their cars in the daytime to keep from getting attacked.
I didn't even get attacked there, and the armed Postal inspector who accompanied me didn't even get a shot off at anybody.
ZImmerman did everything he could possibly do to make someone else believe him to be a predator on the prowl. HIs quarry turned that on him.
I wouldn't have done that either, but Zimmerman would spend a year or two in court.
That's what William Raspberry called a 'white people's riot'.
It's all in the touch.
Oh, and for you, they'd still have you in jail ~ and your family would be living in a shelter.
Before you call that 'blaming the victim', Zimmerman had a pistol on him and imagined that made him safe.
Boy had an overactive imagination. Next time he'll see to his safety.
it would be good if they did do some "soul searching", but, there is one small fly in the ointment. obama and those on the left have no souls to search. All the Left has is a never ending,all consuming desire to control and to kill other people.
(maybe it'll catch on .. or not ;-)
He sides with them.
Indeed, if he had any cojones, he'd come out and publicly admit that he sides with the NBPs. However, as in everything, the leftist worldview is abhorrent to decent people, so he'll keep it to himself.
“Point is, it does not matter, the feeding frenzy has started and no one will listen.”
I disagree. “Some” of the media is already toning down the coverage. They know they jumped the gun, the actual evidence, witness statements, Trayvon rap sheet, combined with the Black Panthers is going to sink this story.
In a week, only MSNBC will be covering it.
Let me guess, poor little Skittleboy, skipping down the street singing the Barney “I love you, you love me” song, is “just like your son.”
I also see the problem that the media keeps using the picture of him as a cute little 8 and 12 year old and not the 155+ LB 6 FT man he was.
I also see the problem that they are ignoring the Tattoo on his arm (Was it a Gang tat?), I also see the problem that this A/B student was half way through a 10 day suspension involving the possession of a baggie with marijuana residue in it. How about the fact that he was looking at further disciplinary action for having assaulted a bus driver.
How about the fact that Zimmerman and his both tutored minroity children free of charge.
Do you see a problem with the media ignoring those issues? Bet you don't
> If Eric Holder had any cojones hed speak out about them.
Well, he does, but these are “his people”.
Why, they all could be 0bamao’s own sons!
Holder doesn’t move on “his people” or ever speak badly about them, no matter what they’ve done, however barbaric and savage it is.
Did anyone else think about the movie “Wag the Dog” when they heard about this story?
It was my first thought. That movie was a leftist production from A to Z - look at the people in front of and behind the camera - all 1,000% leftist loons.
