Source: Zimmerman says Trayvon circled his SUV, frightened him
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 3May 2012 | Rene Stutzman

Posted on 05/03/2012 3:46:07 PM PDT by ironman

George Zimmerman told investigators that while he was on the phone with a Sanford police dispatcher reporting Trayvon Martin as suspicious, the teenager was circling his vehicle on foot, a source familiar with the investigation told the Orlando Sentinel.

The source said Zimmerman's account of events hasn't changed in his several statements to police — in which he said he was so unnerved by the teen's behavior that he rolled up his window to avoid a confrontation. However, he never mentioned any of that while talking to the dispatcher.

The details revealed by the source provide new insight into what Zimmerman said happened in the earliest moments of his contact with Trayvon. And they may reveal the inconsistencies alluded to by prosecutors in the case.

One of those inconsistencies: Zimmerman told police Trayvon had his hand over Zimmerman's mouth during their fight on the night he shot Trayvon.

The Sentinel's source confirmed that Zimmerman's statements include that allegation. But authorities do not believe that happened, the source told the Sentinel, because on one 911 call, someone can be heard screaming for help. If it were Zimmerman, as he claims, his cries were not muffled, the source said.

Zimmerman also told police, the source told the Sentinel, that while the two were on the ground, Trayvon reached for Zimmerman's gun, and the two struggled over it.

Yes, that’s the link which blows “the girlfriend on the phone heard the whole thing” out of the water. That was update #10 and here are further updates:

A later update shows that Julison has been busy this week scrubbing his website and posts.

http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2012/05/02/update-14-trayvon-martin-shooting-the-local-plot-thickens/ WOW!!! You thought the Reuters article about Zimmerman was good, read this. It links Martin Atty. Natalie Jackson and her knowing full well how hard Zimmerman worked to bring the killer of a homeless black man to justice.

I Just threw that out in response to thé claim Martin was out to beat a white man for fun.

Yeah, because that's like the most preposterous idea in the world.

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.

Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?

(the autopsy states she was raped. Don’t think all of these animals didn’t all participate)

And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?

WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?

Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.

And neither, at least on this board for a few posters, blowing a black man’s head off, just for the clear thrill of it.

It should be easy enough to determine if they were talking on the phone at that time. The phone companies keep records. I doubt if she made that up, it is too easy to check.

Zimmerman? Yeah, we think that idea's preposterous, and made utterly unlikely due to Zimmerman's background.

But if you want to continue with the Zimmerman-as-Racist-Death-Wish-Vigilante-Hunting-Down-Innocent-Young-Boys-of-Color scenario, be my guest.

I don’t think that Zimmerman was like that and I see nothing to seriously suggest that Martin was beating Zimmerman for the simple thrill of it.

I think that both were afraid of each other and that each other reacted to that.

>If Trayvon did something threatening, while Zimmerman was in the SUV, why did he put himself in further danger by getting out?

Maybe after Martin moved off, Zimmerman thought that he might have been up to no good. There were robberies that were previously committed in the community by black youths.

People who are afraid beat it home, they don't lay in wait and suckerpunch people. Trayvon didn't like Whitey watching him as he skulked around in the shadows.

Whether that equates to the "simple thrill of it," I'll leave for you to work out for yourself.

So, why didn’t George go home?

His 911 indicated he was very much afraid of Trayvon.

An over-reaction to a situation is often due to fear.

They both over-reacted to the situation.

"His 911 indicated he was very much afraid of Trayvon."

Then why did he call the non-emergency number 911.

"This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around." I'm not sure where the scary part is.

People on the phone aren't laying in wait to suckerpunch people either. "a call from slain black teenager to a girl friend seconds before he was shot dead."

Yep. Need more Zimmerman pixie-dust.

NEXT!

As somebody pointed out, if he was on the phone with somebody, he’s not going to be paying attention to everything around him. That can give the impression, to somebody looking at you from a distance the impression that you might be on drugs.

I also think that a possible reason why Martin might have given the impression that he was up to something is that, because he didn’t live in the complex, but was just visiting and may have been looking for something familiar to remind him where he was staying.

I’ve stayed in those sort of complexes and it can be disorientating.
