    Fiction: Zimmerman called Martin an f'ing coon.

    Truth: Zimmerman actually said it was f'ing PUNKS.Fiction: Zimmerman continued to follow Martin after Dispatch told him "we don't need you to do that".

    Truth: Zimmerman stopped chasing Martin, and had no idea where he was. From the transcript, Zimmerman said when asked his address, "It’s a home it’s 1950, oh crap I don’t want to give it all out, I don’t know where [Martin] is."Fiction: Zimmerman had 100 pounds on Martin.

    Truth: Zimmerman was 5'9" and 170 pounds and Martin was 6'2" and 160 pounds on the day of the shooting.Fiction: Zimmerman profiled Martin because he was black.

    Truth: Zimmerman wasn't sure Martin was black until halfway thru the 911 call. It was dark and raining. Zimmerman's call connected to 911 at 7:09pm. Sunset was 6:23pm.
    Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he white, black, or Hispanic?

    Zimmerman: He looks black.

    <later in the taped 911 transcript>

    Zimmerman: He's got his hand in his waistband. And he's a black male.

    You are correct.

    The Prosecutor Angela Corey states in Zimmermans arrest affidavit that the enhanced audio say "f'ing punks".

    The disputed words on the recording turned out to be “these f—— punks,” prosecutors said in an affidavit filed Thursday in support of the murder charges brought against [Zimmerman]...

    I edited the OP to reflect this fact.

    Better ABC News link to AP story:


    Prosecutors: Zimmerman Did Not Use Racial Slur

    [​IMG]






    By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated Press


    ORLANDO, Fla. April 13, 2012 (AP)




    Despite what some people think they heard, prosecutors say George Zimmerman did not utter a racial slur in his call to 911 on the night he shot Trayvon Martin.


    The disputed words on the recording turned out to be "these f------ punks," prosecutors said in an affidavit filed Thursday in support of the murder charges brought against the neighborhood watch volunteer in the Feb. 26 slaying of the unarmed black teenager.

    Jury will get to hear it plenty of times and they will decide.

    Doubtful...the prosecutor is on the record. Angela Corey cannot submit it as evidence, after stating in the arrest affidavit, an official court record, that Zimmerman has been definitively determined to have said "punks".
