George Zimmerman's Written Statement
at 2:56 PM
I find it very odd that Zimmerman says Trayvon supposedly disappears and then reappears out of the darkness at which time he circled Zimmerman's car. Oddly in the 911 call here we don't hear him talk about this at all. Do I have the complete 911 call?
Who circles a car without provocation? It's ridiculous.
I do not believe that Martin just circled a strange guy sitting in a car without some contact with him. This is illogical. The more logical scenario is something happened first that we haven't been told about. It is strongly suggestive that Zimmerman yelled something out of his car to provoke Martin before calling the police, but hasn't told us about it. This would make a lot more sense to the entire scenario and why things escalated.
Here is another oddity. In Zimmerman's written statement, he says, "The dispatcher once again asked me for my exact location. I could not remember the name of the street so I got out of my car to look for a street sign. The dispatcher asked me for a description and direction the suspect went. I told the dispatcher I did not know but I was out of my vehicle looking for a street sign and the direction the suspect was. The dispatcher told me not to follow the suspect."
In his written statement, he was looking for a street sign yet in the reenactment video, he wasn't looking for a street sign. He was cutting through houses to get to another street:
His story changes dramatically. Looking for a street sign is very different from looking for an address on a building. This is critical.
His story changes because he wasn't focused on getting the address as he says he was. That was his second goal. His first goal was hunting down Martin, but he doesn't want us to know that--that he was in hot pursuit still as I believe that information would hurt his self-defense claim. That's why he never did give the police an address because the address wasn't his goal--getting to Martin was. That's why he told the police to meet him back at his car, or to call him when they got there!
In Zimmerman's written statement, he was sure he fell backwards when allegedly punched by Martin. He says, "I fell backwards on to my back," yet in the reenactment he can't remember oddly.
Notice the afterthought: "Or he pushed me down." The timing is telling...
These statements were taken probably within 24-48 hours of each other. Why is his memory fuzzy from one to the next?
In his written statement, Zimmerman claims that Trayvon covered his mouth and nose, as he said in his reenactment, but in the written statement he says he "stopped my breathing." That's huge. Why would he leave that out in the reenactment? That's life or death, if it happened, which by the fact he quickly forgot by the reenactment, I seriously question the integrity of that statement. That is not something you would forget.
In the written statement, Zimmerman writes, "I felt the suspect reach for my now exposed firearm and say, "You're gonna die tonight MF." Zimmerman continues, "I unholstered my firearm in fear for my life as I was sure he was going to kill me and fired one shot into his torso."
I find this statement fascinating on many levels.
If Trayvon was going for the gun, why doesn't Zimmerman talk about or remember a struggle?
There seems to be no struggle between these two yet both were going for the gun. How does that happen?
Zimmerman just magically got his weapon unholstered and fired it without any struggle. Imagine that?
And got perfect aim into "the torso" and could see it happen, obviously.
It's ridiculously unbelievable that Martin would just sit on top of him and watch the whole thing happened, not doing anything to fight back. This is a fantasy, if you ask me. Pure rubbish. His story is flat out inconsistent on every level.
In his reenactment Zimmerman is inconsistent again. He tells us he didn't think he shot Trayvon.
Yet you just read in the written statement he has no doubt and knows exactly where he shot him!! I think anyone can see the truth here, when you compare statements.
From the reenactment:
In the written statement, the timing of the onlooker is different, too.
Honest people don't have all these inconsistencies, folks.
After he shot Trayvon in the torso, Zimmerman says, "At this point, I slid out from underneath him and got on top of the suspect holding his hands away from the body. An onlooker appeared and asked me if I was okay. I said "no." He said "I'm calling 911. I said I don't need you to call..."
Yet in his reenactment, we hear Zimmerman say the following. Notice the timing is different:
Why can't George keep his facts straight? In his written statement, an onlooker doesn't appear until after George shoots Trayvon. In his reenactment, the onlooker appears BEFORE! Which is it? Why aren't his stories consistent? I can forgive one or two inconsistencies, but we have many, many more.
In listening to the 911 call again, I also hear George's voice drop in volume noticeably when he tells the police officer instead of meeting him-- to call him when he gets there. It's clear he is still "in pursuit" and doesn't know where George is, and he's looking for him, and in case he is close, Zimmerman dropped his voice so he couldn't be heard. That gives me the chills.
