He ran away and was out of Zimmermans sight at least once.

Apparently the Sanford Police have that same opinion based on what they told Martins parents.


"Then came the second encounter, according to Tracy Martin’s recollection of the detective’s account. Trayvon Martin appeared from behind a building in Zimmerman’s gated community, approached him and demanded, “What’s your problem, homie?”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...hhS_story.html

On my part? Makes no difference to me. But I'd hate to see an innocent person be arrested and tried.
Huh? All those links say is what police say Zimmerman told them. There is nothing there that says that is their opinion.

Wonder why the new version leaves out what the police told the Martins at first?

According to Tracy Martin, the Sanford, Fla., detective recounted this sequence of events: Trayvon Martin walked up to Zimmerman’s vehicle and asked why he was following him. Zimmerman denied following the youth and rolled up the car window. Minutes after Trayvon walked away, Zimmerman got out of his vehicle.

not to mention that in the video of him the night of the incident he is not FAT, he is not slender for certain, but he is nowhere near as fat as the mugshot picture made him look, he appears to be in pretty good shape.

If I pass someone in a car I can see if they are fat or not. Especially if I was looking straight inot the car, which the 911 call said "now he is looking at me"

I don't think it's that uncommon to take them down.

My dd's friend died and they took down her FB page pretty quickly. I've seen discussion in other cases of missing or murdered people when some have gone to search FB or Twitter and the accounts had been taken down.

Sometimes it just takes a second or two to think through something and put it in perspective as opposed to quickly jumping on, it must be a coverup.

It just doesn't make any sense.

I've been researching blood spatter on shooters from close range shots. I have a link if some would like it - but I do have to warn you - there are pictures and some are very very graphic. Anyway, I just don't see how, if Trayvon was shot at close range in the chest that GZ didn't have a drop on him. From what I've read so far - GZ should, at least have had a lot of back spatter on his firing hand. And, at such a close range, the gun itself could have had spatter on it.

But, from what I've found so far - I just don't see how GZ shot Trayvon at close range. His physical appearance (meaning blood spatter on him and clothes or lack thereof) does not support that theory AT ALL! Period. It just doesn't.

Anyone want that link just ask me. But it is really really graphic.

That's true. They are bi-racial...but when people see bi-racial people, they usually call them black. I've never heard of a bi-racial person being called white.

What's funny is that all of my children look bi-racial or hispanic, but they have two black parents. lol. Some kid asked my son the other day if he was Spanish. Guess you never can tell.

GREAT then take fat out of the scenario, "man following me" does not change the scenario.

"FAT" is not the operative word. he saw a man follow him..he continued to follow him. Why not make a B line away from him????
Why did he come toward him? it is in the 911 call.
I would call it very daring, and also taunting.
I would only go in the oposite direction no matter what.

The more I see and read the more I think GZ had him pegged right.
but I also think he was itching to have a "Hero" day.

The LAST photo of the guy with all the tattoos is NOT Trayvon.

I don't think they wanted anyone seeing his pages. Those twitter posts were full of bad words.
Does twitter allow that? I'm only on facebook, but I thought they would ban your account if you use such language.

LinasK, I am jumping off of your post because it was convenient, but it is by no means directed toward you specifically. I have seen this comment made several times so I want to take the opportunity to clairfy WS stance on the "victim friendly" issue.



I had a discussion with the owners about how we were to deal with this. This is what I was advised:

At this point in the investigation we don't KNOW exactly who ALL the victims are now. We KNOW that Trayvon is a victim, because he is dead. However, news breaks and new leaks come forth everyday and it is still unclear whether Zimmerman was a victim of any violence. Until more verifiable FACTS are available, WS has chosen to err on the side of treating both the confirmed (Trayvon) AND potential (Zimmerman) victim, both as victims.

Like I said, that may change after we have more verifiable information.

I don't know if Zimmerman was wearing a hat but I could see Martin wondering if this guy who was so interested in him was a skinhead who hadn't shaved his head in a few days.

Why would GZ leave the safety of his car when he was concerned enough to call 911 about a suspicious person with his hand at his waist who may have been on drugs? I would have stayed in my car no matter what.

I would call GZ's behavior very daring.

I concluded that it was LE that called 911 from that phone to maybe get the number? And that LE called it back twice - maybe to see if they could answer it? IDK - but it certainly shows that SPD had that phone.


JMHO


ETA: There was a video connected to this article at first - and during that video you got a better picture of that page of records. I think that video has been removed so you can't see the two incoming calls anymore. I saw those in that video - but the screen shot that's still up shows the 911 call on 3/2 @ 12:45 PM

WHY?? is not bald a fashion statement these days?

when I saw the first picture, and the one with him holding a baby - at first I thought, wow, he's tiny, a kid and not someone looking to fight....the other picture is much different.
