The older brother of Trayvon Martin has spoken out about the circumstances surrounding the teens death stating that his sibling, 'tried to get away from the situation'.

Speaking to CNN's 'AC360', 21-year-old Jahvaris Fulton said that he did not recognise his brother in the statements given by George Zimmerman regarding that fateful February night.

'Based on what I heard, with the 911 tapes and all the evidence, he tried to get away from the situation,' said the softly-spoken college student.

'He wasn't violent. So for him to actually jump on someone he doesn't even known, to me that's not him. He's smarter than that.'

Appearing on the cable network three days after Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder, Fulton spoke up against Florida's controversial 'Stand your Ground' law which forms the centre of Zimmerman's defence....

How does he know? Really? He can tell that from Mr. Zimmerman screaming on the 911 tapes?

Everyone seems to have a different idea of what the 911 tapes reveal.

Never doubt the depths of stupid decisions that a testosterone-filled 17-year-old boy can make.

Lets look at 3 points on the map:

http://www.wagist.com/2012/dan-linehan/evidence-that-trayvon-martin-doubled-back

c. Zimmerman’s truck location
f. location of confrontation
d. House Martin was staying at

If ‘f’ is closer to ‘d’ than ‘c’, how on earth did Zimmerman catch up to Martin...if Martin was trying to get away?

It seems obvious that Martin did not simply run away - to me at least.

Trayvon: "Do you have a problem?"
Zimmerman: "No."
Trayvon: "You do now."

“He wasn’t violent....”

Writing on Twitter under the name “T33ZY TAUGHT M3” in December, St. Trayvon tweeted “Plzz shoot da #mf dat lied 2 u!”

What "situation" was that, EXACTLY, that Trayvon was "trying" to get away from/with?

If it's me, and my head is being bashed on the sidewalk, it's shoot first and ask questions after I shoot again.

Sorry, but if it's my life on the line, I will shoot you dead immediately, so I don't risk the chance of dying.

Fight or flight - sometimes is reflexive. Pulling the trigger in that situation is a primeval choice.

I. for one, will never question someone in that "life or death" position.

Nope, can’t shoot until your skull cracks and your head stops bouncing! You’ve got to learn to be patient.

So for him to actually jump on someone he doesn't even known, to me that's not him

So, going by that logic, Zimmerman cannot be guilty because his family can claim that it's not like him to shoot and kill unarmed black kids. Easiest case ever.

The kid was either in a crew or liked to pretend to be a banger. He made that clear. At some point all TM’s text and phone call data will be discovered by Zimmermans lawyers. This cuts both ways, of course, there may be things that Zimmerman communicated electronically that may come back to haunt him.

If the prosecution has not seen all of this yet and still brought 2nd degree charges they may end up with egg in their faces.

TM’s been portrayed as some kind of kid. An innocent. At the end of the day I’d guess that TM will be seen that way once there is more information about what he texted and who he made phone calls to.

This is precisely what’s wrong in the black communities. They prefer to believe the lies. They could never believe that this kid would harm anyone, even if they saw him stabbing someone to death they would make excuses.

They are blinded by their color and their victimhood.
I hope they have the common decency to thank the democrats for the lives they lead today!

A black man backing down from a fight? Think Peoria, Ill and the fight at the football game. They were ‘children,’ according to Jesse.
