Hmmmmm (Updated: 'Wanted Dead or Alive')

A secret witness says Trayvon Martin did attack George Zimmerman:

[O]ne man's testimony could be key for the police.

"The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: 'help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911," he said.

Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.

The witness only wanted to be identified as "John," and didn't not want to be shown on camera.

His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman's claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman.

"When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point," John said.

Zimmerman says the shooting was self defense.

There's still the matter of Zimmerman pursuing Martin, and Martin being unarmed, to sort out. It's even possible that what the witness saw looked like Martin attacking Zimmerman, but because of the pursuit, it was really Martin acting in self-defense. It's also possible the police have been unfairly maligned in all this. That wouldn't exactly be a first in the career of either Al Sharpton or, if he is unwise enough to do it, Barack Obama.

Update: The Black Panthers have become a lynch mob.
