You won’t read about this in the Washington Post. That paper, according to Tom Maguire, is busy muddling details to confuse readers’ understanding of what happened that night. You have to go to places like this blog and The Smoking Gun to find out about actual evidence in the Zimmerman case.
Interviewed by cops about 90 minutes after the shooting, the witness–whose name was redacted from police documents–said that he was inside his home when he heard a “commotion coming from the walk way” behind his residence.
The man recalled seeing “a black male, wearing a dark colored ‘hoodie’ on top of a white or Hispanic male who was yelling for help.” The black male, he added, “was mounted on the white or Hispanic male and throwing punches ‘MMA (mixed martial arts) style.’”
Recall, CNN’s sound expert originally ruled beyond doubt that the voice heard screaming for help on the 911 calls was Trayvon’s. Um, before that same CNN expert retracted his claim entirely.
The witness–who was in his living room and about 30 feet away from the confrontation– said he called out to the two men that he was dialing 911. “He then heard a ‘pop,’” police reported, and saw the black male “laid out on the grass.”
This man is the second known witness to have seen Martin on top of Zimmerman. The other witness is a child. The detail of the “MMA style” beatdown is new, but consistent with the wounds that Zimmerman is now known to have suffered on his head, and Martin had on his hand. Zimmerman’s wounds are those that ABC originally reported were not there, until their own video proved that they were.
ABC conceals wounds, NBC snips out relevant conversation, CNN’s expert feeds the story with a bogus ruling, the WaPo and NYT muddy everything up to keep their readers confused…has any MSM outlet done anything but make this story worse and more contentious?
Once this is over, if Zimmerman is acquitted, he should pursue every single one of these MSM outlets in court. They have all played distinct roles in lynching the man, high tech style.
