Pretty good article!
This is what I've been screaming!!! He didn't go for his phone, he flipped his jacket back to show or draw his gun. Trayvon probably hit him and took off running down the dog walk. Remember, his bff puts him on the dog walk in his testimony. Zimm never told the cops he was even on that dog walk, I don't think.
Two scraped knuckles and a shot to the chest were Trayvon's only wounds (according to defense). That downward movement when he was on top of Zimm I believe showed his efforts to hold him down so that he either couldn't get the gun or couldn't point and shoot.
Trayvon, even if he was in front/ back of his dad's house wouldn't have run inside, he didn't know who this guy was, and there was a young man inside. I believe he took off down the dog walk and Zimm chased him. The last thing Rachel heard was Trayvon saying 'Get off' and then the phone went dead. I think that's when he hit Zimm and ran down toward the 'T'.
Zimm wouldn't have had his jacket zipped, he was ready for combat. Evidence shows there was way too much blood on his shirt to believe it was zipped. When did he unzip it?? So, his testimony that his jacket shimmied up is wrong, it wouldn't have had to move upward, it would have fallen open if he was on the ground, exposing his side.
Here's a blog with depictions of the complex and possible routes of both. If Zimm is to be believed, Trayvon went between the houses. But he could have easily run down the first street and entered the dog walk at the south end, he was running to avoid his stalker. Zimm could have cut through the houses midway and met him in back of his dad's house. Trayvon would have run north on the dogwalk trying to prevent his stalker finding out where he lived.
I pray the jury takes time to judge the timeline and alternative scenarios. It's so tragic, he was so close to his home. I wonder if the family used the back door as their main entrance. Trayvon obviously intended to go through the patio door.
Maybe the prosecution does better on cross examination. Their job was to lay out the facts, the defense was able to dispute such. When defense presents it's case, let's hope prosecutionn brings some fire. Someone said this prosecutor has never lost a murder case.
We need him to win this one for sure.
