“This guy looks like he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs or something,” Zimmerman told the dispatcher. “It’s raining, and he’s just walking around looking about.” The man tried to explain where he was. “Now he’s coming towards me. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male…Something’s wrong with him. Yup, he’s coming to check me out. He’s got something in his hands. I don’t know what his deal is…These assholes, they always get away.”
After discussing his location with the dispatcher, Zimmerman exclaimed, “Shit he’s running,” and the following sounds suggest he left his vehicle to run after Martin.
“Are you following him?” the dispatcher asked. Zimmerman replied: “Yep.”
“Okay, we don’t need you to do that,” the dispatcher warned.
Several minutes later, according to other callers to 911 in the neighborhood, Zimmerman and Martin got into a wrestling match on the ground. One of the pair could be heard screaming for help. Then a single shot rang out, and Martin lay dead.
How the fuck is he not convicted yet?
Florida has this weird “stand your ground” law that permits a person to use deadly force if he or she feels “threatened.” It’s pretty weird for a country that likes to tout itself as a Christian nation put into effect something like this. What happened to turn the other cheek?
Please don’t overlook this; any reblog would help spread more awareness and divulge further information regarding this tearful tragedy. Stuff like this happens too much and too often to go unnoticed, but when we’re given the opportunity to galvanize the masses with headlines like this, we’re making the first step in the right direction.
I will be reblogging this every few days until this man is charged.
