Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin Shooter Told Cops Teenager Went For His Gun
Posted on 03/26/2012 3:11:56 PM PDT by QT3.14
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.

Probably melted down the jewelry he was stealing for the teeth.
Here are the facts, go to Orlando Sentinal if you want a link:
1. Hispanic guy was walking back to his car, having “lost” the black guy.
2. Black kid jumps out says “you have a problem”? Hispanic responds “no” and reaches for cellphone. Black replies “you do now” and cold cocks the Hispanic.
3. Hispanic hits the ground, nose broken. Black guy proceeds to beat the tar out of his. Hispanic is screaming for help.
4. There is a scramble for the gun, Hispanic blows much-needed hole in Black guy’s chest.
Multiple witnesses and physical evidence cooborate the above.
It’s self-defense. Period.
As for the boy getting Killed I think it should never have happened but none of us know the true story..I would just about die if anything like that happened to my sons..This whole thing needed to stop with people listening to Jessie Jackass and Fat Albert the fools..and the thugs that are offering a reward for dead or alive should be arrested. ..They are starting race war and they will lose even with their presidentis behind them..Just wait until Obama loses...
Not just the gold teeth, but the tattoos and that hoodie as all as the “skittles.”
Captain Zimmerman had just seconds to make a life or death call when he found himself being stalked by Trayvon and from many factual accounts, Trayvon was a life long criminal allegedly out looking for victims.
QB, kicker or RB. In those positions being big is a disadvantage.
...because gay men never hangout with women?
LOL at that Liberace poster!! Very mistaken ladies there! Homme aux doits magiques = man with magic fingers. Those women will never find out...
Gee, just another little piece of information that wasn't released before by the MSM............
How long before the restlessness turns to full scale riots will the MSM wait before they release ALL the information and pictures?
Whose refrain? Not mine, I never requested it before.
there is a florida law with regards to protecting minors who are witnesses.
I hope there is video of the interview.
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!

“QB, kicker or RB. In those positions being big is a disadvantage.”
Yeah. True. But 6’3”, 150 pounds is really, really skinny!
It is interesting how now all the evidence supports the self-defense story of the shooter. Sounds like more than a few politicians jumped the gun with Obama. So called conservatives luled into carrying water for Obama’s political agenda. Starting to seem like either the election is a shame or our canadits are fools.
I have no idea. Just putting out that this isolated tweet seems to be the basis of the "suspended for beating the bus driver" rumor.
His alleged weight has varied from 130 to 190. The autopsy report would give his real height and weight, but I haven't heard it being released, which is odd.
Well, it has 'gates' at the entrances that require a code to enter. You can 'enter' the community if you climb a wall, but it is 'gated'.
I think Doe Eyes would let them kill her or him.
Cameras are racist.
hmm. this could be a case of “who’s zoomin’ who.”
It seems there was both a 10 and 5 day suspension for Martin if media reports are accurate (which is kind a bad thing to assume in this case)
One in October of last year and one in February.
I am sure there will be a lot of interesting facts about Martin to come out eventually. The Martin “family lawyer” has sure worked hard to keep Trayvon’s school disciplinary records from being made public.
You can bet it's not because they want to keep his SAT test scores private. BTW, what kind of family has a "family lawyer" on call. One that has to deal with periodic criminal complaint's perhaps?
It's looking more and more like Zimmerman was correct when he suspected Trayvon was casing the area for burglary.
WR or TE. Tall and lanky would be an advantage.
I wuz thinkin Skittles crappin unicorns like Obama promised us.
I also heard that little Trayvon was packed and ready to leave that very weekend with fellow students to hand out Bibles to the most remote of tribes in the deepest part of the African continent.
Another FReeper is researching the timeline and promising to report it in a separate thread (sorry, the nick escapes me), but so far he reported that the known timeline doesn’t make sense for Martin, that is he seems to have spent too much time trying to reach his father’s girlfriend’s apartment.
Hey, the good boy knew who his father was! How many of his mates did know their fathers?
Once he had finished his law degree at Harvard and his medical degree at Hopkins.
At least they know they have this to hang on to.. .........
"If I had a father (I knew), he'd look like Obama"
I don’t know, if someone is on top of me beating my face then tries to take my gun, I’m going to do everything in my power to prevent that from happening.
Because my gun in his hands makes it his gun.
From everything I’ve seen on this matter so far, it really seems to me that Trayvon was the one out looking for trouble, and he most certainly found it.
