Frankly it just doesn’t add up. Here’s a copy of the 911 call:
At 2:08 Zimmerman is still in his truck and states with surprise that Martin takes off running. According to the Affidavit the person Martin was allegedly talking on the phone with corroborates this and says Martin got scared and attempted to run home.
Soon after you hear Zimmerman’s car door open and you can hear wind. This is where the “We don’t need you to do that” line comes up. Zimmerman says “OK” and you hear almost all wind noise stop. Zimmerman continues to talk to dispatch on how he’ll meet with police when they get on scene. At no point does he sound agitated or out-of-breath. Call terminates at 4:05.
So that’s almost 2 minutes that Martin had a head start on Zimmerman who can’t be doing anything but a slow walk. If Martin was running away, and was so close to home, how did Zimmerman catch him in the short time between when the call ended and the first 911 call reporting a fight began?
I can’t make it add up any other way than Martin doubling back.
But we’ll see all of that soon enough.
**UPDATE** More from the eyewitness who is still making anonymous interviews, I suspect he’ll testify if asked. Also have a look at this analysis of the affidavit.
