    "The guy on the bottom, who I believe had a red sweater on, was yelling to me 'Help, help,' and I told him to stop and I was calling 911. I got upstairs and looked down.

    I don't believe the yelling for help was the same as the screeching sound we heard on the 911 tapes seconds before the gunshot. The boy believes the screaming came from TM. At some point they both could have been yelling for help which could indicate that both felt they were being attacked by an aggressor. But only one is screaming. SA was fortunate to have their timelines right there on the 911 tapes. jmo

    THIS gets me every time with John's story. IF Trayvon was on the top, GZ on the bottom, yelling "help, help", why in the world would John tell GZ "to stop".

    I don't think he's being very clear. There are two possible "hims" in what he's saying.

    I have no idea, but I am looking forward to hear what he (john) has to say. If there is a trial. jmo I think he is the most important witness.

    I find that confusing too. The only explanations that I've been able to come up with are 1) he was telling GZ to stop yelling for help (which makes no sense) or 2) he was referring to TM when he says he told "him" to stop. IMO, it would only make sense to tell the person beating up someone to stop.

    I agree. He appears to be the only witness who actually saw the confrontation clearly and IIRC his story hasn't changed.

    I'm thinking John made a huge slip, but that's JMO. I believe he told GZ to STOP because GZ had the advantage. Again, JMO.

    This doesn't appear to be rocket science here, he sees a guy on top of another guy, beating the crap out of him, he yells STOP. He was OBVIOUSLY talking to the person doing the beating. I SAY "obvious" becuase to extend the phrase to "Stop getting the crap beat out of you." makes NO sense.

    I disagree. The last sentence completely supports GZ's story by linking the aggressor (the person doing the beating) to the person who is deceased.

    "The guy on the bottom, who I believe had a red sweater on, was yelling to me 'Help, help,' and I told him to stop and I was calling 911. I got upstairs and looked down. The person that was on top beating up the other guy was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point," he said.

    There is no mistaking or confusing who was where in this witness account. No "red t-shirt" or "I think" or "it sounded like" or "shadows and figures." This witness states clearly that GZ was being beaten and yelling "help" and that TM was doing the beating and not yelling "help."

    I agree, but I'll play along... for now. I'm sure his statement to the police will be much, much clearer.

    Or he could have told GZ to stop screaming.

    The boy believes screaming came from TM? As far as I can tell this boy never even saw TM.
    So how could he possibly believe screaming came from TM?

    How could he not see him if TM was on top???? Maybe he met TM on one of his visits and knew what he sounded like. I don't know just that he felt the screaming was coming from TM. jmo

    I never read where any witnesses said TM was beating GZ, other than GZ saying so. It was pretty much wrestling on the ground. Big difference between fighting, wrestling and beating someone. jmo

    [QUOTE=AJ Noiter;7892282]If this were the case you'd think he would've stated, on the phone with his girlfriend, that he saw the weapon. You'd also think that just because he thinks he lost sight of Mr. Zimmerman, he'd still be in a hurry to get home.

    Side Note: Not sure about other carriers, but my weapon is in its holster when I put the holster on. I do not remove my weapon from that holster unless I am cleaning it or using it. With that said, it seems silly that someone would get out of a vehicle THEN put the weapon in the holster.[/Q


    I never said he got out and put his gun in a holster. That is what you've said.

    I said I thought, and it's my opinion , George got out of his truck, and put his gun in the waistband of his pants with his unzipped jacket over it. Many people do just that to reach their weapon easier and more quickly if needed. Especially if they don't want the a###### to get away. He had to have that courage to stalk on foot, with no power and authority, a person that he profiled as guilty in only his own mind.

    Again it's my opinion, that when George re-appeared and confronted Trayvon that is was very likely he "showed" his gun and that is what started the struggle.

    I don't think, and it's my opinion, Trayvon had time to say anything more than "why are you following me" then George saying what are you doing here and Trayvon seeing the gun.

    It's my opinion and very likely Trayvon thought George was going for that gun and from that point on he was trying to get the gun to save his life.

    In my opinion, Trayvon had every reason to be alarmed and now he would of had even more reason to be scared.

    George may very well of been carrying it in his hand, but it's my opinion, Trayvon saw that gun and that is when he started fighting for his life. His stand your ground to save his life.

    Why did George have a weapon on him if not to intimidate or detain Trayvon. George lost control of a situation that he himself created.

    In my opinion, George killed a young boy because he's a bully. A self appointed gunslinger. A wanna be cop. I guess he wanted his "fellow" LE to pat him on the back for catching a bad guy.

    Why diss Trayvon for not hurrying back? He was doing nothing wrong. He was going home talking on the phone. He wasn't the aggressor. He wasn't the one up to no good.

    George was the one that got out of his truck armed, and it doesn't really matter if the gun was in a holster or up his butt. George screwed up. He needs to put on a pair and tell the truth and take his punishment.

    I do apologize, I'm pedantic about some things too. A correction to my statement would be to change the word "holster" to "waistband," and you would still have my opinion. It doesn't make sense for Mr. Martin to see the weapon and not say something.

    I am curious as to how many gun owners you know in order to come up with the idea that "many" gun owners carry a gun in their waistband? I assure you, as someone who DOES know a lot of gun owners and who carries themselves, I would NEVER EVER carry a gun in my waistband, ESPECIALLY if I was walking any distance.

    You have also stated that TM "saw" the gun and went after it. This fails the logic test on two levels. First, and FOREMOST, if you see someone carrying a gun, and you "go for it", YOU have committed a crime. If you grab for MY gun, I will shoot you.

    As to why GZ had a gun? Simple, he WANTED to. And in the UNITED STATES, that is all that is required.

    "In my opinion, George killed a young boy because he's a bully. A self appointed gunslinger. A wanna be cop. I guess he wanted his "fellow" LE to pat him on the back for catching a bad guy."

    I guess it was convenient for him that the boy decided to ATTACK GZ (my opinion, and the evidence points in that direction), giving him a reasonable excuse to do what you claim, with NO evidence, he wanted to do anyway.

    Am not sure who was screaming for help. The first thing that comes to mind is Trayvon yelling for help as it stopped as soon as he was shot. Keep coming back to the call that George made to the police though and the way it sounds as if someone is going down a list from the NWH manual. Screaming is in there too.

    The 13 year old boy says he saw one person on the ground, not two.
    He also never claimed to know Trayvon.

    The original comment includes a link to the witness' statement: [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7891693&postcount=324"]Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - The cries for help[/ame]


    Here is the quote from the article linked in the original comment:

    One man interviewed by a local Fox news station, who asked to be identified only as John, said he saw the man wearing a red jacket — Zimmerman — on the ground, being beaten by someone on top of him — Trayvon.

    "The guy on the bottom, who I believe had a red sweater on, was yelling to me 'Help, help,' and I told him to stop and I was calling 911. I got upstairs and looked down. The person that was on top beating up the other guy was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point," he said.


    BBM. The witness says that TM was "beating up" GZ. Not wrestling with him. Beating him up.

    JMO, OMO, and
    I think this is especially glaring with Mary Cutcher who in the middle of March was saying that she knew it was the "little boy" who was shot and that TM was "half the size" of GZ. Those extra details are not true but because Mary Cutcher was a nearby earwitness her words got repeated by many as if she was authority. Even Congresswoman Corrine Brown's letter to Attorney General Holder quoted Cutcher.

I just don't see how "sounds like the voice of a young male" is convincing evidence when the case involves a 17-year old and a 28-year old. I don't think pitch-wise that they'd sound much different, IOW they'd both sound like young men.
    TM's mother has previously mentioned that TM's voice changed when he was fifteen:

    Fulton, remembers when Trayvon’s voice seemingly deepened overnight and the summer when he was 15 and sprouted two strands of hair on his chin.

    “He just wanted to, you know, mature and he wanted to be a man and he was almost there,” Fulton said.
