George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.

That could be one way!!!
The problem, if there is ever a trial of some kind, is your #2. That tape has the Hispanic saying a vile racial thing about the black guy before they confront. So did he also say it to the boy, or was he cold cocked for nothing as in your description? The scenario might have included a racial slur AT the boy. We may never know. But the recording IS evidence that Zimmerman was racist and that hurts him.
Based on everything I have heard about this “Upstanding citizen” maybe Obama is right, he would be his perfect son
See. At least it wasn’t marijuana. Everyone beats their bus drivers senseless. It’s the next big thing after flash mobs.
The joke has left the building...
If my general take on this mess is found to be in error once this CF gets sorted out, I'll most certainly post a mea culpa somewhere amongst the incredible number of threads this has engendered.
Actually, once it is relatively sorted, perhaps a single thread can be posted where anyone honest enough to accept their earned dose of face/egg can have it applied with a single stop !
Too bad we don't have the other side of the story, but he's dead.
If Trayvon grabbed the gun, it may have been more likely that they fought over it. It may have purely been an ACCIDENT.
Sounds like Trayvon needed watching.
Thank you, I like your idea, but I don’t foresee it being implemented.
Bobby, dat becuz you baaad...
Someone needs to alert Santorum, so much for his thinking skills, and he’s a lawyer. God help us!
It’s pretty bad when Stephanopoulos little white boy tries to make it a race issue as blacks are trying not to fall for that trap of the Democrates.
The test of the brother's Feb 21 tweet, on this thread was yu aint tell me yu swung on a bus driver", which I interpret as "You didn't tell me you took a swing at a bus driver". Now, this says nothing about more than one swing, whether the swing connected, nor whether the driver was a school bus driver, or a city bus driver in an altercation unrelated to school.
So how does this tweet relate to a suspension, and was it the primary cause?
Me either . . . LOL, sadly
If a 6-foot person is sitting on your chest, beating in your face with his fists and you have a gun in your holster, are you going to let him kill you OR are you going to save your life?
The police made a determination based on evidence at the scene, on 911 calls and eye-witness accounts.
I suspect this whole tragedy could have been avoided if Mr.Martin had used common sense, stopped, and chatted with Mr.Zimmerman. Mr.Zimmerman has, as a member of community watch, a history of informing the Sanford police of questionable or suspicious activity in that gated community. He does not, as far as I can ascertain, have a history of violent confrontations, something community watch folks are warned against doing.
If you go to the City of Sanfords online site, the telephone calls are all there as well as a report from the City Manager, Norton Bonaparte
Unless Martin jumped him from behind.
Do you have a source for that? I’m in an argument with some Libs about it. Thanks!
