Recordings of eight calls to the police made on the night of the shooting were released by the Sanford police on March 17, The only eyewitness to the end of the confrontation stated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman and punching him, while Zimmerman was yelling for help. This witness, who identified himself as "John", stated that "the guy on the bottom, who had a red sweater on, was yelling to me, 'Help! A year-old boy walking his dog saw a man on the ground shortly before the shooting and identified him as wearing red.
She also stated that the police waited five days before requesting to even question her son and said that the lead homicide investigator told her that he did not believe the shooting was self-defense. Mary Cutcher and her roommate, Selma Mora Lamilla, appeared on AC , and Cutcher stated that she believes that "there was no punching, no hitting going on at the time, no wrestling" just prior to the shooting but admitted that she neither saw the shooting nor the preceding altercation. They heard a gunshot; the crying stopped immediately, and they saw Zimmerman on his knees straddling Martin on the ground.
Dave Morgenstern [on March 15] issued a statement disputing Cutcher's version of events, calling her statements to WFTV 'inconsistent with her sworn testimony to police'". On March 29, , an eyewitness, referred to as a male, said that he saw two men on the ground scuffling, then heard the shooting and saw Zimmerman walk away with no blood on him.
She pointed out that she heard an argument between a younger and an older voice. During the time that she witnessed the incident, the scuffling happened on the grass. She said that the larger man, who walked away after the gunshot, was on top and that it was too dark to see blood on his face. A witness who arrived shortly after the shooting revealed photos that he took that night that showed "blood trickling down the back of Zimmerman's head from two cuts.
It also shows a possible contusion forming on the crown of his head". In revealing the photo to ABC News in mid-April, he noted that he had heard but had not seen the scuffle, had been the first to arrive, and had been the first to talk to Zimmerman after the shooting. One eyewitness statement given the night of the shooting describes "a black male, wearing a dark colored 'hoodie' on top of a white or Hispanic male who was yelling for help. After hearing a "pop", he saw the black male "laid out on the grass". He was no longer certain who was calling for help, having not seen their mouths in the dark.
He was still certain that the black male had been on top of the lighter-skinned male. On March 20, , Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump revealed that Martin had been on the phone with a friend moments before he was shot. She said that Martin told her that a man was watching him from his vehicle while talking on the phone before the man started following Martin.
Martin told his friend at one point that he had lost the man but the man suddenly appeared again. Get off! During her interview with the prosecutor, Martin's friend recounted her last phone call with Martin and added that Martin had described the man as "crazy and creepy", watching him from a vehicle while the man was talking on the phone. She later admitted being embarrassed about lying and that she felt guilty about Martin's death and not doing more to help.
On the advice of his legal counsel, Zimmerman did not speak to the media after the shooting. Zimmerman maintained his public silence until he was interviewed by Sean Hannity of Fox News on July 18, Zimmerman said he was driving to the grocery store when he spotted Trayvon Martin walking through the neighborhood. Zimmerman's father said that, while his son was not on duty that night as Neighborhood Watch captain, there had been many break-ins and he thought it suspicious that someone he did not recognize was walking behind the town homes instead of on the street or the sidewalk.
Zimmerman therefore called a non-emergency police line to report Martin's behavior and summon police. After telling the police dispatcher that Martin "ran",  Zimmerman left his vehicle on Twin Trees and walked down the sidewalk between Twin Trees and Retreat View Circle to determine his location and ascertain in which direction Martin had fled.
Zimmerman told police he shot Martin in self-defense. On June 21, , Zimmerman's attorneys released audiotapes of several interviews he had with police shortly after the shooting. Also included were Zimmerman's written statement of February 26, , and video recordings of his reenactment of the incident and a voice stress test that he passed. In the interviews, Zimmerman says he took note of Martin because he was near a home that he had previously called police about. He also said "he was just walking casually, not like he was trying to get out of the rain" and he felt "something was off" about Martin.
In a reconstruction video-recorded by police the next day, Zimmerman said that after he initially saw Martin on Retreat View Circle he parked his vehicle in front of the club house at the corner of Retreat View Circle and Twin Trees Lane and observed Martin go past him and onto Twin Trees Lane where he lost sight of Martin. He stated the dispatcher asked "can you get to somewhere where you can see him?
He further stated that at one point Martin circled his truck while he was parked on Twin Trees Lane. He described Martin at different points in the interviews as appearing "out of nowhere", "from the darkness", and as "jump[ing] out of the bushes". See Background yells for help in calls Martin told him to "Shut the fuck up" as he hit him in the face and pounded his head on a concrete sidewalk.
He said after firing his weapon at Martin, he was not sure at first that he had hit him, so he got on top of him in order to subdue him. Police reports state Zimmerman "appeared to have a broken and a bloody nose and swelling of his face". Zimmerman was offered three chances to be taken to the hospital, but declined each time, according to police reports released by the prosecution.
In the course of Zimmerman's recorded interviews, Detective Chris Serino questioned aspects of Zimmerman's account, such as Zimmerman's statement that he didn't know the name of a street in the Twin Lakes community where he had lived for three years. Zimmerman said in response that he had a bad memory and takes medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Zimmerman said he didn't want to confront Martin.
On June 26, , the prosecution released the results of a voice stress test performed on George Zimmerman the day after the shooting. During a bond hearing on April 20, , Investigator Dale Gilbreath testified under oath that he did not know whether Zimmerman or Martin started the fight and that there is no evidence to contradict Zimmerman's claim that he was walking back to his vehicle when Martin confronted him.
Gilbreath, however, questioned Zimmerman's statement that Martin was slamming his head against the sidewalk just before he shot the teenager, saying it was "not consistent with the evidence we found. On July 18, , Zimmerman, accompanied by his attorney Mark O'Mara , gave his first long media interview to Sean Hannity , and part of the interview appeared on Hannity that evening.
During the interview, Zimmerman said that he did not regret his actions on the night of the shooting and that he felt that what had happened "was all God's plan". I want to tell everyone, my wife, my family, my parents, grandmother, the Martins, the city of Sanford and America: I'm sorry that this happened. I'm truly sorry. When Hannity asked Zimmerman why his suspicions were aroused when he noticed Martin, Zimmerman replied in part:. I felt he was suspicious because it was raining. He was in-between houses, cutting in-between houses, and he was walking very leisurely for the weather It didn't look like he was a resident that went to check their mail and got caught in the rain and was hurrying back home.
He didn't look like a fitness fanatic that would train in the rain. Following the interview with Hannity, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey filed formal notice that she intended to use the interview as evidence against Zimmerman. Florida defense lawyers said it was a mistake for Zimmerman to do a television interview and discuss what happened that night.
One of them said, "It's really baffling what he thought he'd gain from it. I question who's in charge of the defense strategy, Zimmerman or O'Mara". Martin's parents said they did not accept Zimmerman's apology for killing their son. On April 11, , an affidavit of probable cause was filed in support of second-degree murder charges against Zimmerman. The affidavit described what investigators alleged took place between Zimmerman and Martin on the night of the shooting.
Prosecutors alleged that Zimmerman profiled Martin as he was walking back from a nearby 7-Eleven store to the townhouse where he was temporarily living. Zimmerman called the police, and prosecutors said the dispatcher told Zimmerman an officer was on the way and to wait for him. In the call, Zimmerman made reference to people he felt had gotten away with break-ins in the neighborhood.
Investigators alleged that while Zimmerman was talking to the dispatcher, Martin was on the phone with a friend and she said that Martin was scared because he was being followed by an unknown man. When the police dispatcher realized Zimmerman was following Martin, he told Zimmerman that was unnecessary and that police would meet him there. Prosecutors alleged that Zimmerman ignored the dispatcher and continued following Martin and confronted him and a struggle ensued. When police arrived at the scene, Zimmerman admitted to shooting Martin in the chest.
Legal analysts criticized the prosecution for over-charging Zimmerman, claiming that the probable cause affidavit did not support a charge of second-degree murder. Richard Kuritz, a former prosecutor who worked with Angela Corey, said the state attorney had no obligation to include exculpatory evidence in the affidavit. He stated that Dershowitz could face civil action for making accusations that Corey committed a crime.
In recordings of the calls, yells for help are audible in the background. Zimmerman's family says it was Zimmerman yelling for help, Martin's family says it was Martin yelling for help, and independent audio analysts offer differing opinions as to who was yelling for help.
During the trial, friends and family members of both Zimmerman and Martin testified as to who they thought the voice was, but expert testimony regarding voice identification was not allowed. In an interview with prosecutors on March 19, Zimmerman's father identified the yells as George Zimmerman's, stating, "There is no doubt who is yelling for help. It is absolutely my son. According to police reports, after listening to audio recordings of the calls, Martin's father, Tracy Martin, told police investigators that it was not Trayvon Martin's voice yelling for help.
Investigators interviewed Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, who reviewed the calls to police and identified the voice crying for help as her son. Zimmerman's attorneys requested a Frye hearing regarding the admissibility of the testimony of the audio analysts, to determine if the methods used by them are generally accepted by the scientific community.
Tracy Martin doubted the account of his son's death told to him by Sanford police investigators and believed Zimmerman did not act in self-defense.
Two days after the shooting, he was referred to civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump ,  who was retained to pursue legal action and to persuade the news media to cover the case. On April 5, , more than a year after the shooting, it was reported that the Martin family had settled a wrongful death claim against the Retreat at Twin Lakes Homeowners Association. On June 28, in an interview with CNN conducted during the trial of George Zimmerman, Alicia Stanley, Trayvon Martin's step-mother Trayvon's father's former wife , stated that she believed Zimmerman had profiled Trayvon as a criminal, although she was not convinced that the profiling was based on race.
While the shooting was being investigated, Zimmerman, his wife, and his parents went into hiding due to threats they were receiving as the case gained more attention. On April 9, Zimmerman placed a self-created web site on the internet, which included some brief statements, but no information about the shooting, since he had been advised by legal counsel not to discuss it.
He also solicited donations for living expenses and legal defense costs. After taking over as Zimmerman's defense counsel on April 11, Mark O'Mara took down Zimmerman's self-created web site and replaced it with a professional information site. He arranged for a second web site to be set up to collect donations overseen by an independent third party. He was subsequently released again with a higher bail amount. The conviction will be expunged at the end of her probation period. George Zimmerman's defense team had set up a Twitter account, a Facebook page and a website with a defense fund registered with the Florida Division of Consumer Services.
In July , Zimmerman reactivated his original website, and his parents also created their own web site. Both sites discuss how the case has changed the Zimmermans' lives and seek donations for living expenses.follow
Welcome to Sarasota County Sheriff's, FL
On January 30, , Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, asked on Zimmerman's defense fund website for the public to donate more money. After the shooting, Zimmerman was criticized by the Martin family and in the media for following Martin and for carrying a weapon. Zimmerman was not acting outside the legal boundaries of Florida Statute by carrying his weapon when this incident occurred. We'll figure it out Observe from a safe location". Protests were staged around the U. It was the website's largest petition ever. Since Martin was killed while wearing a hoodie , hoodies were used as a sign of protest over the handling of the case.
Bags of Skittles candy and cans of Arizona Iced Tea were also used as protest symbols. Martin was reported to be returning from a 7-Eleven convenience store with these items when he was shot,    although the beverage he purchased was actually a can of Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail. Walkouts were staged by students at over a dozen Florida high schools,  and thousands of people attended rallies around the country to demand Zimmerman's arrest. A number of high-profile citizens made public comments or released statements calling for a full investigation, including Reverend Al Sharpton ,   Reverend Jesse Jackson ,  and President Barack Obama.
No arrest was made. The Chief of Police in Sanford announced after his review of the evidence there would be no arrest. An outcry from all over this country came because his parents refused to leave it there. Frederica Wilson Dem. President Obama, speaking to reporters on March 23 after federal investigators were deployed to Sanford, said, "When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids, and I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.
Bryant singled out Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for being "race hustlers" who were exploiting Martin's death "to inflame racial passions". According to Zimmerman's father, George Zimmerman received death threats after the shooting and was forced to move out of his home. In parts of the U. Film director Spike Lee retweeted to his , Twitter followers an address in Sanford, Florida, erroneously purported to be Zimmerman's, which forced a family out of their home to avoid harassment after they received hate mail and unwanted visits from reporters. Lee also "settled financially" with the Florida couple for an undisclosed amount.
Professor Alan Dershowitz criticized the probable cause affidavit against Zimmerman as "so thin that it won't make it past the judge", calling it "irresponsible and unethical", and opined that the charges were motivated by prosecutor Corey's desire to be re-elected. Dershowitz said the dean defended his remarks under academic freedom, and he commented that "[e]ven if Angela Corey's actions were debatable, which I believe they were not, I certainly have the right, as a professor who has taught and practiced criminal law nearly 50 years, to express a contrary view.
Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn wrote " His comments were criticized by the Martin family attorney, Benjamin Crump, who compared them to people blaming rape victims for wearing short skirts. Bill O'Reilly of Fox News called for restraint and urged other pundits to stop trying the case in the media. He said that the case is a "tragedy" but should not be tried in the media.
After Zimmerman's bond was revoked for misrepresenting how much money he had when his bond was set,  Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump said he expected the prosecution to bring Zimmerman's credibility "front and center in this entire case". Zimmerman was accused of being motivated by racism   and of having racially profiled Martin. The unedited audio recording proved that the police dispatcher specifically asked about Martin's race, and only then did Zimmerman reveal that Martin was black.
NBC apologized for the misleading edit and disciplined those involved. In an open letter on March 15, , Zimmerman's father, Robert Zimmerman, defended his son against allegations that his actions were racially motivated, stating that Zimmerman was Hispanic , was raised in a multiracial family, and "would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever", saying that the portrayal of his son as a racist "could not be further from the truth".
Just as George Zimmerman's trial was set to begin, Robert Zimmerman published an e-book about the case in which he said that prior to the shooting, he had generally believed racism was no longer much of a problem and that he had personally not experienced much racism, despite being married to a Hispanic woman, but that since the shooting he had found that racism is "flourishing at the insistence of some in the African American Community". According to George Zimmerman's family, some of Zimmerman's relatives are black.
In early April, an anonymous letter to the NAACP, which was signed "A Concerned Zimmerman Family Member" said Zimmerman had been one of the few to take any action to protest the beating of Sherman Ware, a black homeless man, by the son of a Sanford police officer. Zimmerman's father confirmed his son's efforts on Ware's behalf. On the audiotape, Zimmerman was heard criticizing the conduct of the Sanford Police Department in the Ware case. Zimmerman criticized former chief, Brian Tooley, and said Tooley had engaged in a "cover-up" and that he should lose his pension.
He also said he'd been on ride-alongs with Sanford police where he found them to be lazy. The Herald also reported that it had contacted five out of six black churches where Zimmerman was reported to have distributed fliers on the Ware beating, however no one recalled receiving them. On July 12, , reports of some of the more than 30 interviews conducted by the FBI were publicly released.
Deputies identify man involved in fatal Brandon road rage shooting
Zimmerman's neighbors had nothing derogatory to say about him, and his co-workers were complimentary. During the trial, defense attorney Don West implied that the language Martin had allegedly used was evidence that Martin had introduced race into the confrontation. For not arresting Zimmerman, the Sanford police faced heavy criticism, protests, and allegations of racial bias. Attorney General Eric Holder expressing "no confidence that, absent federal oversight, the Sanford Police Department will devote the necessary degree of care to its investigation" and requesting that personnel be detailed to Sanford to review the case without bias.
Allegations were also made that the Sanford police were protecting Zimmerman. He's not under a legal obligation to do that, so that is not something we can charge him with. On March 21, , three out of the five members of the Sanford City Commission, including the mayor, passed a motion of no confidence in regards to the Police Chief Bill Lee, and his handling of the case; however, the vote was advisory only.
Some commissioners had concerns about the fairness of Lee losing his job and the mayor stated he preferred to wait for the results of an investigation. Lee was to remain on paid leave. In an interview with CNN, following his testimony at Zimmerman's trial, Bill Lee said that he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice. They didn't care if it got dismissed later. The Sanford police presented a " capias request" to the state's attorney, asking that they determine whether it was a "justifiable homicide".
The Zimmerman defense team initially planned to seek to dismiss the case against Zimmerman under the protection afforded by Florida's " stand your ground " self-defense law. Self-defense laws in the United States , particularly regarding justifiable homicide , vary by state. In many states, such laws exempt people in their own homes from the common-law requirement that one first attempt to retreat , if one can safely do so, before resorting to the use of deadly force the so-called " castle doctrine ", based on the notion that "a person's home is his castle".
Three weeks after the shooting, Florida Governor Rick Scott commissioned a member task force to review the Florida statute that deals with justifiable use of force, including the Stand Your Ground provision. Several months following Zimmerman's acquittal, in October bills to revise Florida's Stand Your Ground law provisions in accordance with several of the suggestions offered in by the governor's task force began advancing through the Florida legislature with bipartisan support.
For the first 10 days after Martin's death, the story was covered by only by local media outlets in Florida. The Project for Excellence in Journalism reported that media coverage of the Trayvon Martin case became the first story in to be featured more than the presidential race. According to the Project, the varying types of media have focused on the case in different ways. An article in the Tampa Bay Times wrote that, "on Twitter, people are outraged at Zimmerman and want justice, while on cable news and talk radio people are discussing the state's laws for self-defense and gun control and on blogs the focus has been on race.
The contrast in the photos of Martin and of Zimmerman which were most widely used in early media reports of the shooting may have influenced initial public perceptions of the case. The initial police report on the shooting described Zimmerman as white. Economist and commentator Thomas Sowell criticized the national media for implying that Zimmerman had continued to follow Martin after the police dispatcher said, "We don't need you to do that.
After the audio of the call was released, reports by CNN  and other news outlets alleged that Zimmerman had said "fucking coons" two minutes and twenty-one seconds into the call. Two weeks later on April 4, , CNN claimed that enhanced audio revealed that Zimmerman had said "fucking cold" alluding to ongoing rain in February. On one version of the recording played by NBC, Zimmerman was heard saying, "This guy looks like he's up to no good or he's on drugs or something He's got his hand in his waistband, and he's a black male.
He looks black. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about. In reality Zimmerman simply answered a question Nothing prejudicial at all in responding to such an inquiry To portray that exchange in a way that wrongs Zimmerman is high editorial malpractice NBC issued an apology for "an error made in the production process that we deeply regret,"  but never apologized on the air. On December 6, , Zimmerman filed a defamation lawsuit against NBC alleging that they intentionally edited the phone call so that Zimmerman would sound racist.
The lawsuit said, "NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain. Zimmerman unfairly and we intend to vigorously defend our position in court. In the ruling, the judge wrote that there was "no clear and convincing evidence that defendants knew that the information published was false at the time it was published, or recklessly disregarded the truth or falsity of those statements".
ABC News obtained a surveillance video of Zimmerman walking unassisted into the Sanford police station after the shooting. An officer is seen pausing to look at the back of Zimmerman's head, but ABC originally said that no abrasions or blood can be seen in the video. In his July 26, , column, Slate journalist William Saletan accused several major news organizations of editing interviews with "Juror B29" to make it appear that she maintained Zimmerman had gotten away with murder when, according to Saletan, she had not actually done so.
As news of the case spread, thousands of protesters across the country called for Zimmerman's arrest and a full investigation. Opening statements took place on June 24, Jury deliberations began on July On July 13, , the jury found him not guilty. On February 24, , the United States Department of Justice announced that "there was not enough evidence for a federal hate crime prosecution. Some legal scholars, including Charles Rose of Stetson University and Jonathan Turley of George Washington University, were not surprised by the verdict and said the prosecution had tactically erred by charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder, which, given Florida's laws on self-defense, made it almost impossible for the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt with the evidence at their disposal.
George Zimmerman remained in hiding after the verdict, although it was reported that on July 17, four days after the verdict, Zimmerman helped rescue several people from an overturned vehicle in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman's parents said that they too had received a large number of death threats and were still too afraid to return to their home after the verdict.
During a speech to the NAACP, Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the Department of Justice was continuing to investigate Zimmerman for civil rights violations after the verdict, and also criticized existing "stand-your-ground" laws. Although there were scattered incidents of disturbances and vandalism following the not-guilty ruling, fears of widespread civil unrest as per the Rodney King verdict in were unrealized.
The man said the three assailants yelled out "This is for Trayvon! Just days after the Zimmerman trial verdict had been announced, several dozen activists known as the Dream Defenders began to camp outside Governor Rick Scott's office in the Capitol, demanding that the governor call the legislature into special session to pass what the activists called The Trayvon Martin Civil Rights Act , which would repeal the Stand Your Ground law, outlaw racial profiling, and discourage the use of zero tolerance policies in schools.
Democratic leaders in the Florida legislature, Senate Minority Leader Chris Smith and House Minority Leader Perry Thurston , also called on the governor to convene a special session of the legislature, in order to overhaul or possibly repeal the Stand Your Ground provisions of Florida's self-defense laws. On July 19, six days after the verdict, President Barack Obama gave an impromptu minute speech in the White House Press Room , in which he spoke about the trial and about race relations in the United States. A week after the verdict, peaceful rallies and vigils were held in more than cities nationwide to protest racial profiling, demand the repeal of Stand Your Ground laws, and call for a federal trial of Zimmerman for violations of civil rights laws.
A nationwide poll conducted for The Washington Post and ABC News found sharp divisions along racial and political lines over the shooting and over the jury's verdict. The acquittal of Zimmerman on the charge of murdering Martin, inspired a Facebook posting that included the phrase "black lives matter", which later became the name of the Black Lives Matter movement.
