While the details of the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin shooting become clearer: (1) Zimmerman WAS injured and (2) Zimmerman DID NOT utter a racial slur, there remains the screams for help heard on the 911 tape, and who was doing the screaming, and it matters. It is important to note that Sanford Police played the audio for Trayvon Martin’s father, and the father said the voice was NOT that of his son’s. Not much press on that statement. Hear it in the video below. But…
A witness the night of the incident said he saw and heard George Zimmerman yelling for help. He saw Martin on top of Zimmerman. The Sanford Police report says when they arrived, Zimmerman had grass stains on his back and he was bleeding from his face and the back of head.
The Martin family now says the screams and cries for help heard on the 911 tapes ARE the voice of their son, Trayvon. Apparently, the father now agrees with his ex-wife. No other statement from Trayvon’s father is in print that I can find. But…
Owen said a positive identification would involve a number over 90 percent. “[Y]ou can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it’s not Zimmerman,” he told the Sentinel. Source: Daily Caller
Owen says he has tried to get Zimmerman to cooperate in reproducing the scream so that a better analysis can be made. That isn’t happening as long as The New Black Panthers has the $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman’s head, and even if Zimmerman resurfaced, it would be impossible to reproduce a scream made under such intense pressure. But…
“The guy on the bottom, who had a red sweater on [Zimmerman], was yelling to me, ‘Help! Help!’ and I told him to stop, and I was calling 911,” said the witness, who asked to be identified only by his first name, John.
John said he locked his patio door, ran upstairs and heard at least one gun shot.
“And then, when I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on the top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point.”
And George Zimmerman was instrumental in catching one thief in a neighborhood that had a clear record of crime in just the past year:
The neighborhood this took place in has seen a lot of crime. Would you be surprised to learn that there were eight burglaries, nine thefts, and a shooting just in the past year? In fact, the local homeowners’ association reports that George Zimmerman actually caught one thief and aided in the apprehension of other criminals. The Miami Herald wrote about this on March 17th. None of the thousands of articles and cable news segments that came after, thought this was important.
In fact the Miami Herald goes on to interview neighbor, Ibrahim Rashada, who is black. Rashada confirms that there has been a lot of crime in the neighborhood and indicates to the reporter that the perpetrators are usually black. Source: Charleston Examiner
So…the Grand Jury on the case convenes on Monday, April 9th with the New Black Panther bounty still out there, the New Black Panther Party poster with Zimmerman’s face in “crosshairs,” still out there.
