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.”

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    This story is what happens when top flight security goes wrong. Fcker thought he was more than he was just because he had a tinfoil badge and a gun.

    **************************

    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.

    :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:

    ________________

    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.

    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.

    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.
