The Truth Please…
George Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. There have been several inconsistencies in his story which leads folks to believe that he may not be telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Zimmerman's account of what happened to one of his closest friends stated that Trayvon had his hand on the gun and Zimmerman pried it away and shot him, but Zimmerman's story to the police was different.
Zimmerman said that he could not give an address location as to where he was when the shooting took place (despite the fact that it was a small community of about 3 streets and he had lived in the area most of his life), when pictures from the crime scene clearly show an address on a house within plain view.
Zimmerman was told not to follow Trayvon, but he ignored the request and pursued him anyway. He was recorded on a phone call to police dispatcher, minutes before he shot Trayvon, off-offhandedly saying "[Expletive deleted] punks." What does that say about his frame of mind at the time of the shooting?
So many questions.; too many to propose for this writing. But everybody has an opinion, and we would like to hear from you.Please share your thoughts/comments with me below.
Do you believe that Zimmerman acted with a depraved mind, hatred, malice, evil intent or ill will toward Trayvon as suggested by a Sanford police detective? In his off-handed statement, was he racial profiling Trayvon as a criminal? Why did Zimmerman not go to the emergency room immediately after the altercation? Why did Zimmerman say that he did not know about Florida's "stand your ground law", even though he studied criminal justice and had an intense interest in law enforcement?
Take our poll here and tell us--do you believe Zimmerman or not?
