Nearly a month after Trayvon Martin's killing, the account of what occurred the night of the teen's fatal confrontation with George Zimmerman is getting more complicated. As the public attempts to piece together what really happened on Feb. 26, more details have emerged telling Zimmerman's side of the story.Now let me tell you what's going to happen. The left, which has been vilifying Zimmerman and in some cases even calling for his kidnapping or death, will not accept any of this as true. The narrative has been set and to wander from their tall tale would require some serious "soul searching", in the words of Obama. Since few of them have recognizable souls, that's probably impossible. And how would they ever face the race mobs again if they had to apologize to Zimmerman?
According to law enforcement authorities, Zimmerman, who maintained he shot the teen in self-defense, told local police that Martin punched him in the face, climbed on top of him and slammed his head into the sidewalk, the Orlando Sentinel reports. ...
There is about a one-minute gap between when Zimmerman made the 911 call and when he came face-to-face with Martin that police say they're not sure what happened.
According to what Zimmerman told local officers, he lost sight of the teen and was returning to his SUV when Martin approached him and they exchanged words. He said Martin asked if he had a problem, Zimmerman replied no and reached for his cell phone. He then alleges that Martin said "well you do now" and punched him in the nose.
Zimmerman said he then fell to the ground and Martin got on top of him and began slamming his head into the sidewalk. Zimmerman said he began yelling for help.
An individual can be heard screaming on the 911 audio, however, there's been a dispute amongst witnesses as to whether it was Zimmerman or Martin who was crying for help.
According to authorities, Zimmerman then shot Martin at close range. When the local police arrived at the scene, they found Zimmerman with a bloody nose, swollen lip and lacerations in the back of his head. Although paramedics gave him first aid, he said he did not need to go to the hospital and sought medical treatment the next day.
You can blame the media as much as anyone for accepting the lefty narrative without question...until many people who are not part of the mainstream media began investigating on their own and discovered these inconvenient facts.
Oh, and there's this tidbit of info about a suspension Martin was given in October:
Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described the screwdriver as a burglary tool.Perhaps Martin was not as innocent in life as that picture of him as a 12-year old that's attached to every media report would suggest.
Trayvon was asked if the jewelry, which was mostly women’s rings and earrings, belonged to his family or a girlfriend.
“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend.
The more I hear about this case the more convinced I am that the original decision not to arrest and prosecute Zimmerman was correct, and although I expect the Feds to try and come up with some bogus civil rights charge, at this point I don't think they'll be able to support that either. For one thing, do they really want to bring this to trial and have all the relevant info about Martin released under discovery and witnesses? Probably not.
There have been some interesting byproducts from this story. Just as when the left declared the war on Rush Limbaugh, conservatives have fought back showing example of example of tragic killings involving black perps and white victims in which not a peep was heard from Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, or any of the race pimps (that was for you, Sam) who jumped all over this case. There are far more of those than cases of white (or "white Hispanic") on black violence. The age in which the media could set the narrative without challenge is over.
