Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.
I think it has to do with the recent rash of burglaries. One that sticks in my mind is the woman who was trapped in a room of her condo, on the line with 911 and she could hear the guys in her house. To think the burglars are getting that brave would cause a lot of angst in the neighborhood, IMO.
Those guys got away, IIRC.
This caller is close enough to hear Zimmerman talking to the officer. I think the second statement in bold I did is this guy hearing Zimmerman telling the officer the statement about nobody helping him. It is almost word for word what the officer put in his report.
7:17 p.m. ET
Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"
Caller: "I’m looking out my deck, and someone is screaming 'help,' and I don’t know. … I heard a bang. I’m looking out my window, out my backyard, and someone is yelling and screaming 'help.' "
Dispatcher: "You are not the only person calling. We have more than one officer on the scene and another on the way."
Caller: "Oh, my God. I see the person now. I see him walking. There’s a man coming out and people coming out with flashlights. Oh, my God. I don’t know what he did to this person. I can see there is a man walking out with a flashlight right now."
Dispatcher: "Was it a male or female voice?"
Caller: "The man is up right now. Someone is coming over. I’m glad other people called."
Dispatcher: "We should be out there right now."
Caller: "I can open my window and hear it."
Dispatcher: "You can still hear it?"
Caller: "I don’t know what is happening. Someone is laying on the ground."
Dispatcher: "What’s happening? Someone is on the ground? Someone has been shot? Calm down, stay on the line with me. Like I said, we have an officer on the scene, and we have other officers on the line."
Caller: "Oh, my God. They better hurry up. Someone is on the ground. Oh, my God! I see out my back window, sidewalk, grass, something is really bad. There is a man out here with a flashlight."
Dispatcher: "Is this person laying down in the street?"
Caller: "No, it's from my back window."
Dispatcher: "So is the person laying down in the street or in the grass?"
Caller: "The grass. Oh, my God! I think there is another gentleman with a flashlight. ... I think police. Oh, my God! He shot, he shot the person.He says he shot the person. He said he shot the person."
Dispatcher: "Who saying they shot who?"
Caller: "The people out there, a guy is raising his hands up, he's saying he shot a person. I think it's a police officer that's with him right now. arrest - uh - oh, my God, why - why (inaudible)"
Dispatcher: "Our officer is there, he has somebody at gunpoint. They're going to handle the situation from here."
Caller: "Oh! Oh, my God, somebody would be shot!"
Dispatcher: "It's probably going to be best if you stay inside your home for the time being, OK?"
Caller:" I know. I can't believe somebody's killed. He was saying help. Why didn't someone come out and help him?"
Dispatcher: "Listen, we don't know if they been killed ..."
Caller: "Yes, the person is dead, laying on the ground."
Dispatcher: "Just because he's laying on the ground don't mean he's passed. We have an ambulance on the way, and we are probably going to pick him up and take him to the hospital."
Caller: "I didn't see cause it was too dark, and I just heard people screaming 'help me, help me.' And this person shot him! He was like wrestling with him, you know what I mean, on the ground, from what I can see it was very dark. The man didn't try to run away or anything. I don't want to be a witness or anything. I'm scared. Oh, my god, a young boy, I can't imagine, I haven't seen anyone killed. This is a nice neighborhood. Oh, my God, I'm too scared to live here."
Dispatcher: "You don't have to worry right now. We have many officers on the way. Two officers on scene right now, we are on scene, OK?"

I hear "get off of me" and "NO!" "OH MY GOD" and couple of "OH *****" (one of those is cut off when the caller is giving personal info - you can catch just the ***** when the audio comes back.
This is the one that the caller tells someone to "GET IN HERE". She is upstairs in the bedroom and she also tells the person to "GET UP HERE" - so that would mean the person is downstairs and she is upstairs.
Sorry, I wasn't more clear about which call.
ETA: I was just catching up, sorry. I see you've clarified this now.
IDK - could go either way, since she wasn't asked a clarifying question.

BEM: Here she says "people". I don't think she could know who was screaming, I think both. I think whomever won the struggle for the gun, shot the last one to yell help in that split second of realization. Did I read somewhere Trayvon said "you got me man". Something like that.
I do think that call I posted caught most of the "fight" between them. The timeline is tight. We get 40 seconds of screaming.
Trayvon's phone dropped the gf's call at 7:16 (Incoming call @ 7:12 - lasted 4 moinutes)
LE is on scene at 7:17 - I'm giving benefit of doubt - getting car in park, getting out heading toward the people he's hearing............... so let's say 2 minutes
120 seconds from disconnect on Trayvon's phone to LE on scene. And we got 40 seconds of that on the call.
Yep, I kinda think most of the "fight" was caught on that call.
So I think she heard the teenager screaming, and that's the story she stuck to. Hmmm...Another officer corrected a witness after she told him that she heard the teen cry for help.
The officer told the witness, a long-time teacher, it was Zimmerman who cried for help, said the witness. ABC News has spoken to the teacher and she confirmed that the officer corrected her when she said she heard the teenager shout for help.
