Witnesses Back Up Zimmerman's Account Of Attack In Trayvon Martin Shooting, Police Say
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 3/26/12 8:33 p.m. EST | RENE STUTZMAN

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.

Yes, an attack so brutal Zimmerman's brains dripped out all over the grass ~ he died you know.

Then Trayvon began playing with the pistol like a children's toy and accidentally shot himself.

(/s)

Zimmerman's injuries were so severe he didn't bother going to the hospital ~ just walked home nekkid from downtown Sanford ~ his clothing having been left at the police station for forensic examination.

(/s)

Trayvon, though, was left at the morgue.

Do you see the problem here ~ bet you don't.

New info today says Zimmerman was attacked on the way back to his car AFTER the dispatcher told him to stop following Trayvon. He was >>retreating<<.

All of this was known, but not reported by the local TV network, the day after the event occurred.

As the story was being picked up the national news, this local station was sitting on the sidelines, letting jesse, fat al and the black panthers pick up steam.

The general manager of that station should be fired.

So, if I’m on top of you, beating your face and slamming your head on the ground, how long do I get to do it? See, it’s sort of a “cultural game” to me, beating folks, hitting them, knocking them down, and beating them. So, you should just accept it. At some point, I might let you up. Or, I might be in a mood with an attitude, and bash your brains all over the sidewalk. You won’t know, until I decide to get off you, or knock you out or kill you.

Do you realize how frigging insane you sound in your post? I’m serious. We are supposed to just lay there and get our faces beaten, and just HOPE our attacker will get up before we’re dead or brain damaged? Really? Is that what you believe?

I have a strange question. Its trivial, I know, but since its become the rallying cry...

What source originally told us Martin was carrying Skittles and tea?

Finish this sentence

“When Martin was beating his head on the pavement, Zimmerman should have ______”.

What?
Let him?
Just died, because defending himself would have been “mean”, or worse, “racist”?

Yep, I understand that but sadly “”it does not matter, the feeding frenzy has started and no one will listen.”

Once everyone is churned up (which has already happened) no one wants to hear facts if it does not line up with their cause. I think (personally) that Obama and the Left has some real “soul searching” that needs to be done!

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.

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.

Quite frankly I avoid people like you.

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.

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.

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.

Trayvon, though, was left at the morgue. Do you see the problem here ~ bet you don't.

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

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.

Coincidence?

I hate to jerk you back to reality but this kid Trayvon was a bad seed and unfortunately he ran into a situation that called for good judgement. He didn’t have it and now he is no longer with us. There is a reason for the expression “sh@t happens”.

NO doubt the dispatcher should have hunted up Trayvon and told him about that. He appears (according to Zimmerman’s 911 calls) to have retreated at least three earlier times.

"he spotted Martin walking through his gated community. Martin was visiting his father's fiancee, who lived there."

Is "there" the gated community, or is "there" the Orlando community?

It seems to me that the answer to this is important. It's also important if this error in the reporting was inadvertent, or was intentionally misleading.

Ah, now you are demonizing him for carrying a gun, which is legal in Florida.

Against self defense, against vigilance in protecting a neighborhood, against carrying a gun, “for” the poor little black boy attacking Zimmerman and beating his bloody head into the pavement.

You are revealing quite about yourself, and it is all ugly.

I’m curious, what are you doing on a “conservative” forum?
