My hoodie for #trayvon!

Trayvon Martin, who was murdered on February 26, 2012, by racist vigilante, George Zimmerman. According to phone records provided by T-Mobile, Trayvon was speaking on a cell phone at the time of the incident. Martin’s girlfriend came forward, identifying herself as the other person in that conversation; she was interviewed by an attorney, who has made a statement, and her parents have requested her anonymity. The girl said that Martin expressed concern about a “strange man” following him, and she advised him to run. She claims to have heard Martin say “What are you following me for?” followed by a man’s voice responding “What are you doing here?” She said that she heard the sound of pushing and that Martin’s headset suddenly went silent, leading her to believe that he had been knocked down. She attempted to call him back immediately, but was unable to reach him.

Zimmerman phoned the Sanford Police Department police at the non-emergency number at approximately 7:00 p.m., February 26, 2012. to report Martin’s suspicious behavior, which he described as “just walking around looking about” in the rain. The police dispatcher tape recorded him saying, “This guy looks like he is up to no good. He is on drugs or something.” He further stated that the person he was observing had his hand in his waistband, was holding something in his other hand, and was walking around slowly in the rain looking at houses.

The dispatcher recommended that he not take any action, and informed him that police were on the way. Zimmerman reported that Martin had taken off. The dispatcher asked him if he was in pursuit and he affirmed that he was. The dispatcher informed him that pursuit was not necessary, saying “We don’t need you to do that.”

A part of what Zimmerman said on the tape is unclear. Some have heard the disputed words as “f*cking coons”, an ethnic slur used against black people, while others suggest it was “clueless”, “course”, or “punks”.

The report said that Zimmerman’s back was wet and he was covered in grass as if he had been on the ground. He was bleeding from his nose and the back of the head, the report said. A police officer said he overheard Zimmerman say, ‘I was yelling for someone to help me but no one would help me’ while he was being treated by paramedics.

A resident, who attended an emergency homeowner’s association meeting after the shooting on March 1, told the Huffington Post how ‘one man was escorted out because he openly expressed his frustration because he had previously contacted the Sanford Police Department about Zimmerman approaching him and even coming to his home. It was also made known that there had been several complaints about George Zimmerman and his tactics.

No arrest has been made.

Update:
■ Long-time friend Joe Oliver said Zimmerman ‘couldn’t stop crying’ after the shooting
■ Zimmerman’s lawyer says only one side of the story is being told & more will be revealed at grand trial
■ 911 calls paints paranoid picture over blacks in his community
Also says it was Zimmerman’s voice on the 911 tape calling for help

    Justice for Trayvon Martin. Why is the police saying its not enough evidence to arrest Zimmerman ? If the roles were reversed an arrest woud have tooken place it is really sad that this is the world were living in

  • Sweetnay27

    I want someone to explain, why George is still free! He has hit a police officer in his criminal record. Why does he still have the firearm in question used in the crime? Why was he still in the watch program after several people made complaints against him to the police department.

    I want these questions answered?

  • MELODY_EPPS

    IT REALLY BOTHERS ME AS A PARENT TO KNOW THAT A KILLER IS STILL RUNNING FREE AFTER CONFESSING TO KILLING THIS YOUNG MAN. THIS COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN MINE SON OR YOURS. WE MUST COME TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS YOUNG MAN AND HIS FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND EVERYONE WHO CARES GET SOME JUSTICE AND PEACE. TRAYVON YOU ARE TRULY A CHILD OF GOD. THERE IS ONE THING I KNOW AND THATS GOD DON’T LIKE UGLY AND HE IS NOT TO FUND OF  PRETTY. GOD IS IN CONTROL.

    • Scottbolingbrook

  • Lillian Stephenson

    SAD,SAD,SAD,GEORGE ZIMMERMAN,YOU PUT YOURSELF ABOVE THE LAW NOW DEAL WITH THE LAW.GET READY TO FACE YOUR DEMOMS.!!!!!!?!

    • He does need to face those EVIL DEMONS AND DIE LIKE TRAYVON MARTIN DID!

  • Tew4378

    Racism is still very raw and very real.  Just think it was only until the 60’s (50+ years ago) that black were able to marry whites, and the late 50’s for anti-segregation laws to come to affect.  That wasn’t long ago at all.  The laws for racism and racist acts against blacks really need to change. African americans really need to stop being couch warriors and rally together for once like every other group of people who experience discrimination to make sure laws regarding racism against blacks change.  Look how hard gays have worked to make sure laws have become stronger for them. Look at that guy facing 10 years for a gay crime.  As a group we need to stick together and not just wait for Al Sharpton to do the work that we all need to do so that our sons and daughters aren’t the next Trayvon Martin.  What a horrible thing to happen.  Is this what our ancestors died for.  To have this type of police brutality to continue.

      let’s just be real racism didn’t go nowhere. It’s comming back out in the open again. We need some strong leaders to show us how to be heard about this.

    Let Freedom Ring For Trayvon Martin!

    We must speak up for those that have been wronged. All life is precious no matter what the color.

  • Jasmine

    Zimmerman followed an unarmed teenager with a gun, and shot him.  The moment he started following the kid, he knew right where it was going to end. And anybody who thinks he said anything else besides “f****** coons” has to be a racist asshole just like this guy and they’re sticking up for him. If Trayvon had murdered Zimmerman his ass would have been in jail that night.

  • Way to go Tia….love you for this!  

  • Looks as if the girlfriend is lying and switched around what she heard… just sayin

  • Scottbolingbrook

    Thanks Tia I hope more cerleberties speak out as well. I hope someone gets Trayvon’s parents a real good lawyer like Johnny Cocorine was. Looks like the police know things wasn’t right and since this is so highly profiled they wants to cover theirselves. The man was wrong he was the aggrasser because he should have never followed Trayvon like the dispatcher said. He has a ego problem and they need to dig into his pass more deeply.

  • Dominique Jones

    This is so sad. Justice needs to be done.

  • We are all Treyvon Martin, and we must not stop until justice has been served, not just for Treyvon, but for everyone who has lost their lives to a senseless act

  • Rachel

    I  think that men killed that boy and his family trying to cover it up for him, that not right at all.

  • ValerieJ

    Sad to see her do this :/
