At the time of the screams:
- Zimmerman had significant injuries. He’s the one with the probable broken nose, the lacerations, and the bloody head).
- Martin is the one with no injuries except a cut on a finger.
Obviously, it was George Zimmerman screaming for help. The idea that it was Trayvon, wailing for help!, while wailing on George Zimmerman is absurd. “HEEELP!” *PUNCH* “HEEELP!” *PUNCH*
“Zimmerman came at Trayvon gun-drawn, holding Trayvon at gun-point! Trayvon was scared for his life! He was only defending himself!”
That is the only semi-plausible theory available to Zimmerman’s persecutors(a). However, it makes no sense.
- Dee-Dee’s description of the initial verbal exchange between Trayvon and Zimmerman, Trayvon says nothing about Zimmerman’s gun being drawn. Trayvon would not have said “Why are you following me for?”, he would have said “OMG! Why do you have a gun out!?”
- When W6 goes outside and tries to stop the altercation verbally, Trayvon does not say “Help me restrain him, he’s got a gun!” In fact, Trayvon ignores W6.
- Significant time elapsed from the beginning of the encounter to when the gun was fired. Why did Zimmerman wait so long to squeeze the trigger? By the way, struggles for guns don’t take that long.
- If Zimmerman had a gun pointed at Trayvon Martin, a struggle for a gun is exactly what would have happened. There was no struggle for a gun. If someone has a gun in their hand the only way you defend yourself is try to get control of the gun. There is absolutely no evidence consistent with a struggle for a gun:
- Zimmerman didn’t have any wounds on his hands, arms, or wrists. Martin’s DNA or fingerprints were not found on Zimmerman’s gun.
- Eye-witnesses do not report a revealed gun, nor do they describe a struggle at all consistent with one.
- If Zimmerman had a gun in his hand, why were all of Zimmerman’s injuries on his head?
Answer: Trayvon Martin was obviously not defending himself from a drawn gun. Trayvon Martin wasn’t defending himself at all. He was beating up George Zimmerman as George Zimmerman screamed for help that never came. Finally, George Zimmerman drew his gun and fired a single time.
George Zimmerman was obviously attacked, obviously injured, and he was obviously the person screaming for help. The very notion that it was Trayvon screaming is maddeningly ridiculous.
a. The screams still sound more like someone being actively beaten up than someone being menaced with a gun.
