Trayvon Martin threatened to kill George Zimmerman, Zimmerman's father says
myfoxtampabay.com ^ | March 28, 2012

Posted on 03/28/2012 8:14:15 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

TAMPA - The father of 28-year-old George Zimmerman spoke out Wednesday night. In an exclusive interview with FOX 35's Valerie Boey, Robert Zimmerman says he and his family have gotten thousands of death threats.

He asked that his face not be shown as he explained what happened the night his son shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Robert Zimmerman says George Zimmerman was going to the store when he saw someone he did not recognize as living in the community.

"Because there have been a lot of break-ins in the area, he thought that was suspicious that someone would not be walking on the street or the sidewalk. That he'd be walking by the town homes," Zimmerman said.

It’s clear that Zimmerman acted in self-defense and should not incur any legal penalties in view of the fact that he was defending his own life from an attacker.

Yup, the real “issue” for the predator underclass is that their prey are shooting back.

I just listened to the audio tonight, and was interested in the allegations that he used a racial epithet, which would be indicative in the minds of some that there was prejudice and racism behind it from the start.

I ran the audio through Audio Hijack Pro (not an expert) and the part where some people are asserting he called Martin a "F****ng coon" is hard to hear, but I can clearly tell it begins with a "P" and not a "C".

If you listen to it in a loop (which I have linked to) you can make out he is saying "F****g Punks!"

HERE IS A SLOWED DOWN, ENHANCED LOOP OF ZIMMERMAN

It CLEARLY isn't "coons", the word is a puckered "P".

No mistaking it.

The answer(s)are
None of the media get sued.
The US Just-us dept. ignores Obama’s homies the NBPP.
Local & state attorneys are scared shi*less, so no state charges are file against Obama’s Homies, the NBPP.
Spike Lee walks on abetting the terrorizing of the old couple because he is too big to be responsible.
Jesse & Al find someone to extort another few million from.
George Zimmerman is sent away to appease the African mobs Trayvon Martin is still dead. That in my racist opinion is the outcome of this episode

The Obama conspirators doing everything they can to destroy America need a $8/gallon gasoline and a race war to finish off the country.

Still don't know WHY Obama hates America and is a traitor? Is Hussein enough of a hint or do you need to see more?

There have been 100% guilty murderers who got spared the needle because of brain injuries suffered subsequent to their crime.

What would the level of outrage be if Mr. Zimmerman’s head injuries lessen any punishment...

He was raised a red diaper doper baby. There is no reason to question it.

He said in college he sat with the Marxist professors talking about taking the system down.

He joined the Radical Wright’s ‘church’ for 20 years.

He’s a naked Marxist with a chip on his shoulder against this nation.

What does Mr. Zimmerman know that we don’t ?

Martin’s attorney released phone records showing Martin was on the phone with his girlfriend minutes before he was killed.

That'll get his base out, but it'll also bring in, en masse, the folks who want him defeated. Either way it's a losing situation for Obama.

When blacks get upset they march (and sometimes riot). When whites get upset they vote.

Democrats getting a taste of what they created. Reminds me of Bubba when Hillary got tossed aside by blacks voting race in the primaries.

Btw the ABC footage really puts Zimmerman’s story in doubt. No bloody nose. Minor cut on back of head. Not helping his cause.

I think he’ll eventually be indicted. Negligent homicide at least but most likely 2nd degree murder.

Then we’ll have the trial riots when it’s not guilty. Then a federal trial for the same crime.

You’re wrong. Their report hurts their cause. It states that he had already received medical attention.

Do you suppose that the medics would have cleared him to ride in the patrol car to the police station had they been unable to stop any bleeding?

It’ll look good for the cameras...

Gimmie a break.

He said he doesn’t think she was on the phone when Martin was being followed by Zimmerman. He talked to his girlfriend a total of FOUR minutes that night but how long before the 911 call?

There is no question in my mind that the dimoKKKRATS and their allies are stoking the issue to get the Blacks all fired up for the upcoming election. They are trying to get a high voter turnout and playing the race card once again.

Too bad there are witnessed to Martin jumping on Zimmerman. Regardless of the severity of injury. If his lawyer claims he got a broken nose I’m sure there is medical docs to back it up, if not then he’s stupid for repeating it to the media.

Do you think Zimmerman just shot Martin in the chest for no reason, or because he wanted to kill a black kid? There was no struggle?

It’s was okay for Trayvon to make threats. He is black, and that is part of his gangsta’ culture. He was just sharing the rap, beating down the brown guy.

There are two questions there. (1) Was Martin on the phone with his GF? and (2) Has she given a correct account of what she heard on the call?

The cell carrier can answer the first question definitively and also give us the exact times. As for the second, well, she'd have a powerful incentive to spin a tale, now wouldn't she?

His family had a close friend who mentored him when he was growing up with grandparents. That friend is supposed to have been a commie pinko who hated this country.
His mother hated this country and didn’t seem to care much for white men.
So this is the way he grew up, half white and with a chip on his shoulder. That chip is still there.
He nor his family were ever slaves. He cannot relate to our black communities from personal experience. Only playing the game to get ahead in politics...He is a fraud all way around. ABO!

You may be right about the Grand Jury. However the state of Florida and the US Just-us dept are still out there to cook up something (anything) to send him away in order to appease the African mobs. Hell, it may take trying him 3,4 or 5 times to get the desired results, but..............

Radical-In-Chief by Stanly Kurtz gives, in my opinion, the single best background information describing the swamp this viper was hatched in: the Midwest Academy of Chicago. It's fully detailed in the 60 pages of chapter 5.

Yes, Frank Marshall Davis would be that person. I think the story of the Midwest Academy is crucially important because, not only was Obama thoroughly trained by its founders and members, but also the Academy is the center which gave rise to the stealth socialism strategy that we see culminating in this administration.

I have heard PUNKS from the day it was released. It doesn’t even need enhancement. There is no doubt it is PUNKS.

“Coons” is never even used and males under 30 use the insult “punks” regularly.

In the original tape, to me he is saying F-ing "cones". Remember this was when he started running after Martin. Was there some kind of construction or road/pathway work being done where safety cones would be impeding him?
