I can't think of any possible explanation that would make what George Zimmerman did excusable. But prosecutors' most recent claims make Zimmerman look like even more of a pathetic coward than he did before. Didn't think it was possible, right? Well, get a load of this: Apparently Zimmerman told investigators that after the dispatcher instructed him to stop following Trayvon Martin and he returned to his SUV, he was confronted by the teen -- violently.
According to Zimmerman, Martin asked him "if he had a problem." Zimmerman said no, Martin said something like, "Well, you do now," and hit him in the nose. Then Martin slammed Zimmerman's head into the concrete several times.
That's right, then 17-year-old Trayvon Martin supposedly slammed 28-year-old George Zimmerman's head into the concrete.
His account has been "corroborated" by (unnamed) witnesses. And Florida authorities sure are selling the story as legit. From the Orlando Sentinel:
"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel."
Yikes. Are they sure that was Trayvon Martin? Cause it kinda sounds like it was the Incredible Hulk. Not a skinny, "baby-faced" 17-year-old. Cause I don't have specific measurements for Zimmerman, but he doesn't look like a man of small stature. To me. Just saying.
Whew! Well, I guess nobody can blame Zimmerman now.
What do you think of the prosecutors' latest claims?
