Update: Trayvon Martin 911 tape to be released next week; gunman who shot him had a past history of violence

Update, Mar. 10 @ 10:28 am:

Thanks to the combined efforts of the national media and concerned citizens, police will release the audio tape of a 911 call made by a Neighborhood Watch vigilante who shot and killed an unarmed teenager nearly a month ago.

ABC News reports that the Sanford police department in Orlando, Florida will release the tape to the media next week. The family of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin hopes the 911 tape will shed light on what really happened on Feb. 26, when Trayvon walked from his father’s house to a nearby convenience store to buy candy for his 13-year-old brother.

On his way back from the store, carrying only a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona ice tea, Trayvon was spotted by 26-year-old George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was the self-appointed Neighborhood Watch “captain” of the gated community called The Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, 20 miles north of Orlando.

Trayvon lived with his mother in Miami, but he was visiting his father and stepmother in the mixed race subdivision.

A police report indicates that Zimmerman called 911 to report a “suspicious person” in the area. The police dispatcher reportedly told Zimmerman to “stand down” and wait for backup to arrive shortly.

But Zimmerman, who is white, ignored that order and exited his vehicle to confront Trayvon, who is black.

A fistfight ensued and Trayvon apparently got the best of Zimmerman. Police found him standing over Trayvon, who was dead from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and the back of his head. He was armed with a 9mm handgun which he was licensed to carry, according to the police report.

A police officer at the scene said Zimmerman stated, “I was yelling for someone to help me but no one would help me,” — probably an indication that Zimmerman was not well liked by his neighbors.

Police took Zimmerman in for questioning but, despite confessing to shooting Trayvon, he was released because police said he had a squeaky clean background, which included a college degree in Criminal Justice.

But ABC News did a little digging and learned that Zimmerman has a past history of violence. He was arrested in 2005 for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin, said his son’s background was also clean. According to ABC News, Tracy Martin described his son, who loved sports and dreamed of being an aviation mechanic, as “a real mild-mannered young man,” who “never got in trouble, never had any trouble with the law.”

The family’s lawyer, Ben Crump, says the family is calling for Zimmerman’s arrest so that, in Tracy Martin’s words, “Justice can be served.”

Police had declined to press charges or to investigate the case any further until intense pressure from the media was brought to bear on them. The Sanford police dept. had also refused to release the 911 audio to the family despite repeated requests.

“He was a good kid,” Crump said in an interview with CBS.

“He (Zimmerman) didn’t have to get out of his car,” said Crump, who filed a lawsuit to force police to release the 911 tape. “If he never gets out of his car, there is no reason for self-defense. Trayvon only has skittles. [Zimmerman] has the gun.”

    This is really said and I assume the police are going to sweep this under the rug.

  • INTENSEMOCHA THE ANTAGONIST

    WHY SO MUCH PAIN, LOSS & SUFFERING~

    MAY HE REST IN PEACE AND JUSTICE BE SERVED

  • lady_cn

    Wow. Sad, sad, story. There has to be more to this story for them to just have let the shooter go. There just has to be. I’m not saying that Treyvon did anything wrong, but I just can’t fathom the police letting the shooter off with no charges.

    I’m :pray: for this family.

    This is disgusting. Who this Barney Fife think he is? He ASSASSINATED a young man like it was nothing. I guess the black-white ratio in that neighborhood is pretty low. I guess people need to start giving guests list out nowdays.

    lady_cn

    what more could it be? the man got OUT his car against advice of the police. he was looking for trouble & found what he considered it in the young man. :shrug: :(

  • cheeks8683

    If they found a yt man guilty here in OK for using excessive force and killing a black boy who was attempting to ROB his store then surely they will find this man guilty of SOMETHING….Is he related to police captin there or something?

    This is just tooo sad for me on a Friday. :pray: for his fam

  • INTENSEMOCHA THE ANTAGONIST

    SOUNDS LIKE THE PERP WAS LOOKING FOR A REASON TO SHOOT HIS GUN, AND KNOWING THE VICTIM WAS BLACK & DEAD, THAT THE LAW WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY BELIEVE HIS VERSION OF THE STORY AND HE WOULD WALK FREE

    JUST LIKE WHEN BEIGE WOMEN CRY RAPE AFTER CONSENTING TO SEX OR WHEN THEY CLAIM SOMEONE BLACK STOLE THEIR KIDS, ONLY TO FIND OUT LATER THEY MADE IT UP

    THE COMMON DENOMINATOR IN ALL OF THESE STORIES, THERE ARE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEY ARE INHERENTLY PERCEIVED AS CREDIBLE AND THAT IN ITSELF IS A LOADED GUN~

  • http://www.landofpure.net Fayla aka IWhipIt..WhipItRealGood:)

    reminds me of the time that yt man called 911 & kept them one the phone while he shot two criminals in the back bc they broke into his neighbor’s house. the police were on the way, u could hear the sirens in the background, but he went against what they said & shot them both dead. he got off too :coffee:

    Did anybody read the part where the officials said they “respect his background”? that is the reason he hasn’t been arrested..

  • NaijaGal

    The community needs to get in an uproar and force the police and DA to get this ish right…1st degree murder, fcuk that manslaughter ish…racist bastard needs to get ready to guard his asshole in prison…I’m so :mad:

    Where is Obama, when things like this happen? Sandra Fluke? did Obama call this boy’s family or the police department. Ya’ll keep supporting a president, that turns his head to the same folks that voted him into office. Also, if everyone is so outraged, call the SANFORD police dept and ask why this coward is still walking without any charges against him! People are quick to support KONY2012, but it’s like pulling teeth to have OUR people come together and stop this type of violence against young black males.

    this really touches a nerve with me.

    @Intense- In FL, TX, and now VA among other states maybe if your person, property, etc is threatened you have the legal right to shoot to kill without legal ramifications.

    _____________________________________________________________

    True…this is just so sad, what was going on in this man’s head where he felt the need to kill a kid? Like really, who does he know to be let off like that? If this is a gated community which is what I’m hearing then somebody has to have a recording of this, like an outside camera showing what went down

  • Phrozen1der

    @Torae Obama is busy protecting the damn country,it isn’t his job to police our communities JUST because he’s black. It’s up to the LOCAL and NATIONAL NAACP and entities of that nature to handle race relations stop thinking Obama has to drop dime everytime something happens to us..He isn’t the BLACKS president,he’s American’s president! However,I agree we have more homeland issues to be concerned with rather than overseas non american issues to be caring about.. :coffee:

    I will say I don’t necessarily think Stand Your Ground is a BAD thing, I think it is used too often in suspect circumstances. More often than not, you don’t even need that law. Very few people will get charged if someone comes in their house and kills them. It’s this stuff and the case in TX that is overzealous.

    Not sure if anyone already said it, but there is more to the story. The reason the police are siding with this guy’s self defense claims is because Trayvon beat the sh*t out of him and in fact was on top of the guy pummeling him when he was shot. It is ok to be honest about that part. The fact remains that this young man realized he was being followed by a crazy white man at night who confronted him for no reason and he defended himself…..well. The fact that this idiot lost the fight he started doesn’t make this a case of self defense. It’s manslaughter at the very least.

    IF HE REALLY WAS A CONCERNED CITIZEN OR NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH ETC. THEN WATCH FROM A DISTANCE & WAIT FOR THE COPS, EVEN AFTER THE COPS ARRIVE AND HAD APPROACHED HIM AT LEAST HE WOULD “KNOW” THEY WERE THE COPS AND NOT SOME RANDOM PSYCHO WHICH OBVIOUSLY PUT HIM ON DEFENSE MODE

    I live in Florida, this story is not a surprise. Cops and yt’s kill young black men for sport. @MsFashion, I agree with you. Hell I probably would have went insane and cut his heart out and handed it to the police about MY child. Sad. Smh.

  • Ty

    So I can assume Mr. Zimmerman is yt and saw a black boy walking through his gated community. Mr. Zimmerman feared for his life yet he felt the need to leave his home (armed), get in his car, follow this child, pull a pistol and shoot him

    I :pray: that shyt like this doesnt happen to me and mine because I will flip the hell out :shotsfired: They would’ve been picking Mr. Zimmerman’s azz up too :cuss:

    This shyt is foul on so many levels

    Exactly. I want to know why he felt the need to exit the car if the kid was so much of a “threat.” Why not wait until actual law enforcement comes?
    **************************

    Because he was itching to use that 9 he was carrying around like a lunatic. The cops had the audacity to tell the family that the killer studied criminal justice for 4 years and they gave him the benefit of the doubt because knows the law. Witnesses saw the fight, but when the killer asked them to help him they didn’t. They called police, but they didn’t pull Trayvon off of him. I wonder why not? Maybe they thought he needed an azz whoopin. When cops got there his nose was bleeding, he had a bump on his head and his back was wet with grass on it. Trayvon was face down in the grass.

    All this happened because he wanted to be a cop without actually being one.

    @ Naijah I agree 100! Obama can’t save the world & you can’t place everything on his shoulder. This is a sad story but I need more details. Cops cover up for each other each day. Shyt.. Mississippi governor pardoned killers. Can’t get into the Black & white issue because I come from both but we do live in a messed up & unjustified world.

    I will commend Sandra for putting it out there. Praying for the family. Have a good weekend :)

    :rolleyes: at all the Rev Al, as one who listens to his show he is far from a coon and does way MORE than things that get him on TV. He actually has his own MSNBC show and I am sure he has covered this story. He talks about murders all the time on his show from all across the country. Also, Rev Al said he only gets involved in cases like this when the FAMILY calls him in ie Sean Bell/Jeana 6 families called him. I did not listen to his radio show this week but I am sure this was discussed on their as well. Rev Al does more than most people know and realize. I always find it funny the same folks who always throwing Rev Al under the bus are the SAME ones who are always calling on him when shyt hits the fan :coffee:

    WHAT are you doing to help the situation in your community????? Anytime you point your finger you have THREE coming back at you.

    :pray: for this family and that justice is served

    But it’s okay for the president to personally call a woman on the phone and console her because Rush Limbaugh called her a slut on the radio? Why doesn’t Obama call me on the phone? I’ve been called worse than a slut on Twitter? :shrug:

    @Sandra Stop acting surprised this is America which is WHY the shooter was released ain’t much changed round these parts sadly.

    ________________

    Oy vey, Sandra….

    Remember, Rush Limbaugh is NOT an Obama fan! Everything revolves around politics and that person’s interest. We live in an even smaller world now, were we can connect instantly. So if I bashed you all day, then turned around and asked for your help, would you help me??? Probably not.. And I’d be afraid to call you and you start screaming in my ear. If I was in your shoes and I wanted justice, I would go to the Gala that Tyler Perry is having for President Obama and see if you can talk to him there. It’s not about kissing ass, it’s about rationalizing and keeping an open mind. You don’t have to like him, but you should RESPECT him. Even if it’s a brief meeting, especially since you don’t like parties. Change begins within you love. Like I said in my previous post, I was having mixed feelings about voting for Obama again. But my mother talked to me and said we need him because the others candidates aren’t for the middle class. In 2008, ironically, I talked her into voting for Obama, not Hilary and now the tables have turned. So if I don’t vote, then I can’t Kvetch!

    I like you alot, Sandra! You are opinionated, funny, critical, harsh at times, yet fights for justice. Thats why I asked to join your blog.

    I don’t know the entire story and I cannot get involved because I’m afraid I’ll lose my job. Look up Bonnie Watson Coleman (D) – New Jersey Legislature. She’s fiesty and may be able to call and talk to Obama for you… :) Good Luck and the Martin family will continue to stay in my prayers. Nontika B.

    OUTRAGE! this is so sad…

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    Sandra THANK YOU so much for covering this story. You know how I do. When I first read the story too many details were missing for me to even form an opinion, but the facts were out there if you did a little digging. The cops were hanging the whole self defense claim on the fact that Trayvon fought for his life against a stranger that was following him and confronted him at night. If I knew that, I’m sure other media outlets knew as well, but they kept leaving out the fact that Trayvon whooped this guy like that was gonna make the boy look bad. It made him look like a warrior to me and the murderer looked even more cowardly.

    I promise you this, if the murderer is not arrested by the time I am in that area in a few weeks, I will organize a march my damn self. I for one will not sit around while the police let this man get away with cold blooded murder.

  • TiFan4Lyfe

    Makes me think of when I’m going threw the city next to mines on my jogging days.I be tired but don’t want to stop.I haven’t seen a black person besides myself there,ever really.they be looking at me like I’m not suppose to be there or like they are scared I’m casing out the joint or something…shidddd I be thinking I’m scared and just as suspicious of yall to.this is sad.I wonder what was said.howd they start fighting??and dude needs to go to jail!!he done killed somebody child.neighborhood watch my ass!!!!

  • Ms. Everything

    This story makes me sick and more people need to pick it up and make it a national issue. Imagined gay slurs get more press, outrage and wannabe activists ready to boycott, march and protest than this story has :cuss: Something has to be done so that this boy gets justice and the next nutjob with a gun thinks twice before shooting an unarmed innocent black child

  • klprgroup

    @lady_cn you sound like a coon, your statement makes absolutely no sense. He was shot because Zimmerman was trigger happy and felt that a young black child didn’t belong in that neighborhood obviously. If it was your child I wonder if you would make such a ridiculous statement.

  • RIP: Pillow-pet (9/11 – 01/12)

    Same ol’, same ol’.

    It’s a shame that this kid had to lose his life this way. Racisim is alive and well. Hunting for negroes is in the blood of many anglos. Their foremothers and forefathers did it for freely for over 400 years.

    Plus, it doesn’t help that black people have made themselves famous all over the world for referring to one another as n-words, bytches, and hoes—-for dollars. People are living pretty famously and fabulously off of money black people give these entertainers to travel around the world telling everyone that this is what they prefer to be called—-and call one another.

    Can’t nobody hate a black person worse than another black person.
