Police: Trayvon Martin Slammed Zimmerman’s Head Into Sidewalk Several Times

Call this the narrative interrupted.

With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel.

That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say.

Zimmerman has not spoken publicly about what happened, but that night, Feb. 26, and in later meetings he described and re-enacted for police what he says happened.

In his version of events, he had turned around and was walking back to his SUV when Trayvon approached him from behind, the two exchanged words then Trayvon punched him in the nose, sending him to the ground, and began beating him.

Zimmerman told police he shot the teenager in self-defense.

Civil rights leaders and thousands of others have demanded Zimmerman’s arrest, calling Trayvon a victim of racial profiling and Zimmerman a vigilante.

How much would you like to wager this news account doesn’t make it onto CNN or MSNBC?

And we also know why he was suspended from school.

Trayvon was visiting his father’s fiancée, who lived there. He had been suspended from school in Miami after being found with an empty marijuana baggie. Miami schools have a zero-tolerance policy for drug possession.

If Obama had a son, would he be carrying empty marijuana baggies? Maybe we should blame his school now for such harsh zero-tolerance policies.

Update:  The Martin family confirms the marijuana story. Meanwhile, here’s a bit of irony.

Professional football players Ray Lewis and Santonio Holmes are joining civil rights leaders Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton at a rally in Sanford later Monday. Also joining the rally are comedian Sinbad and leaders from the Urban League and ACLU.

Ray Lewis must think people have short memories. Considering many think he got away with murdering young black men, he might want to dummy up.

    critter,

    Consider this…

    If Trayvon is NOT suspended from school in Miami.
    Then Trayvon is in school in Miami instead of in Sanford.
    If Trayvon is in school in Miami and NOT in Sanford.
    Then Trayvon would still be alive.

    Notice a pattern here.

    It all started with Trayvon.

    Decisions have consequences (sometime deadly)

    End of story.

    You do realize that your justifying a kid being killed (as in dead) because he had an empty baggie. How could any sane person think like that. I mean you, Chris. Seriously, I would love to see you explain that fevered thought process. I’ll be waiting.
