Zimmerman’s Dad: Trayvon Martin Told My Son He Was ‘Going To Die Now’

LAKE MARY, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — The father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager says despite dispatchers telling his son to stop following Trayvon Martin, he kept going so he could get an address for police to check.

Robert Zimmerman spoke to WOFL FOX 35 in Orlando in an interview that aired Wednesday night. He says his son was suspicious because of several break-ins and thought it was strange for someone to be walking between the town homes on a rainy night.

He reiterated what other George Zimmerman supporters have said. He says his son was walking back to his car and Martin confronted him.

He says Martin broke his son’s nose and knocked him to the concrete.

“It’s my understanding that Trayvon Martin got on top of him and just started beating him,” Zimmerman told the station.

Zimmerman also says that Martin threatened his son’s life.

“Trayvon Martin said something to the effect of ‘you’re going to die now’ or ‘you’re going to die tonight,'” Zimmerman told the station.

He says Martin continued the beating and his son “pulled his pistol and did what he did.”

A security video shot after the death of Martin shows George Zimmerman being led in handcuffs from a police car, and an attorney for the teen’s family said it is obvious to him that Zimmerman did not have injuries to his face and head as his supporters have asserted.

Sanford police Sgt. David Morgenstern on Wednesday confirmed that the video being shown by ABC News is of Zimmerman. The 28-year-old’s head and face are visible throughout and he is dressed in a red and black fleece jacket. Police are shown frisking Zimmerman whose hands were handcuffed behind his back. They then lead him into a building.

Zimmerman said that on Feb. 26 he was pursuing the 17-year-old Martin, who was not armed, because the teen was acting suspiciously. He said he lost sight of the black teenager and Martin attacked him as he headed back to his sport utility vehicle. Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is Hispanic.

The neighborhood watch volunteer told police he fired in self-defense and he was not arrested, touching off widespread public outrage and protests across the country. Zimmerman’s attorney, Craig Sonner, has said in more than one interview that his client’s nose was broken during the fight with Martin.

The Orlando Sentinel, citing anonymous sources, has reported that Martin grabbed Zimmerman’s head and banged it several times against the sidewalk. A statement from Sanford police said the newspaper’s story was “consistent” with evidence turned over to prosecutors.

Sonner said the gash on the back of Zimmerman’s head probably was serious enough for stitches, but he waited too long for treatment so the wound was already healing. Miguel Meza, who identified himself as Zimmerman’s cousin, said Zimmerman was in “the fight of his life.”

“This certainly doesn’t look like a man who police said had his nose broken and his head repeatedly smashed into the sidewalk,” Ben Crump, an attorney for Martin’s family, said in a statement. “George Zimmerman has no apparent injuries in this video, which dramatically contradicts his version of the events of February 26.”

Sonner did not immediately return an after-hours call to his office.

Crump called the video “riveting” and “icing on the cake” that Zimmerman should be held accountable for what happened.

Since the shooting, Zimmerman’s supporters say he’s gone into hiding and that he and his family have gotten death threats.

Martin’s supporters, including a host of outspoken celebrities and civil rights leaders who have appeared on television for the past two weeks, don’t believe Zimmerman’s story. They want him arrested and prosecuted.

      Technically, Barack Obama is considered to be a mulatto. This is not a perjorative word, nor is it racist. Distionary.com describes it as:
         [muh-lat-oh, -lah-toh, myoo-] noun, plural mu·lat·toes, mu·lat·tos.
      the offspring of one white parent and one black parent: not in technical use.

      a person whose ancestry is a mixture of Negro and caucasian

      • Ed S

        Does that make zimmerman a latoe, a latinatto, a latte? No, it was clear from the photos he was Hispanic, and if we’re going by the “one drop” criterion that Jesse, Al and co are so fond of using and the left is so quick to perpetuate, then Zimmerman is Hispanic. Goodness knows, he would get that credit on any job application, school admissions forms, etc.

        Zimmerman ought to be grateful he’s not Jewish, because if he were, these mobs would have already burned down his retail store with customers and employees inside JUST like Sharpton;s gang did in NYC. That took a tremendous amount of effort by the MSM to cover up. HOpefully they’ll be up to the task on this debacle as well.

        Whats wrong with being a racist? The blacks are… at least the one we see TV…

    • SuperMechaPatton

      The real shame is that color is still an issue. A shame that it’s so important to so many who embrace its division. Why not character, accomplishment, or wisdom?

      Because that’s so much harder to understand than “My skin is X, and his skin is Y, therefore I will support the X guy and jump to conclusions without all the evidence”

      • N.M.B.

        SuperMechaPatton – ‘The real shame is that color is still an issue.’

        But that shame falls to the likes of New Black Panther Party, Rev. Al “fake rape” Sharpton, Rev. Jesse “cut his __ off” Jackson”, and Barack “beer summit” Obama. They all require racism for them to succeed with their hate-filled anti-American Socialist plans. NBPP, Al, Jesse, and Barack success depends upon non-Whites believing they are doomed to failure, without the aforementioned Race-card players.

        Excellent point, SuperMechaPatton. That’s what we, the Booker T. Washington Society (BTWsociety.org) are working to instill in young Americans today: that it’s about character, not color.

      Bill Smith above,

      Your nickname for Jesse Jackson is spot-on.

      A few years back, I was in high school at a fairly affluent school in the suburbs of Chicago. Jesse Jackson came out with his goon squad and some underpriviledged kids to see what the suburban schools were like. This visit resulted in him demanding that the tax dollars that fund these “majestic” suburban schools be partially allocated to the inner-city schools.

      In effect, what Rev. Jackson wanted was that our property tax on our more valuable property in the suburbs be used for things that have no impact on us and we do not use. What a goon.

    When are the Black Panthers going to be arrested for putting a bounty on a citizen’s head??? Eric Holder = The most incompetent Attorney General of all time……. Maybe even WORSE than incompetent!

    • Finlander21

      The poster I read clearly said ‘Dead or Alive’. Perhaps they have rethought the language.

    • Yirmin Snipe

      Doesn’t matter whether it said dead or alive or not. The poster is soliciting for the kidnapping of an individual that has not been charged with a crime, nor has any crime been declared to have been committed in the shooting. Therefore the bounty is encouraging and asking people to commit a felony and that is a crime.

    • Harry

      What part of ‘dead or alive’ don’t you get Bill?

    • Clearhead

      Billy boy, it sounds as if you have information about Zimmerman’s father that no one else has.

    • Grace

      So who gave the Black Panthers any authority to offer a bounty? They aren’t lawmen or the courts and exactly who would they turn him over to if he was brought to them? That’s a scary thought….
      Zimmerman is NOT WANTED. He was taken into custody and released. I’m sure the police know exactly where Zimmerman is and if they feel the need, they can pick him up.
      The rest of us law-abiding, gun-toting citizens need for them and Al Sharpton to take a few steps back and shut up and let the system do it’s job.

      • Steven

        I agree the Black Panthers are not lawmen but is Zimmerman a lawman with the right to confront and kill innocent people. When you put the law into vigilante’s hands bad things happen. I don’t believe the Black Panthers have rights to take the law into their hands just as I beleive Zimmerman did not have the right to take the law into his hands.

      • Kevin

        The Black Panthers and any other wannabe hoodlums can come on down to my neck of the woods… By the time they leave they will leak like a cartoon when they drink water (or that grape drank), but they can come on down….

      The guy can not be arrested with out charges being filed and as of yet, no charges have been filed. The guy isnt missing, the police know where he is.

      I have NO idea what went on between Zimmerman and Martin, and doubt the truth will ever really be discovered but backing the citzen bounty the new black pathers issued is just beyond ignorant.

      Im sure both sides are lying at this point, getting someone else killed wont lead anyone to the truth……which may explain a few things. Loon.

    • Michelle

      Zimmerman should be punished when Holder is punished for Fast and Furious. His actions had several people killed, including a police officer. Murder is Murder. Don’t care who you are.

    • robin hood

      Bill, a bounty for any citizen’s capture and arrest is a felony unless that citizen is a fugitive from the law. According to your logic Bill, anyone could put a bounty on you because they didn’t like your post. Think about that consequence.

    • hwk

      No Bill, it’s not the same. The police questioned Zimmerman and released him. Your child molester analogy is stupid because the criminal is wanted by the police. That’s not the case here, because he’s done what the police authorities have asked, he hasn’t been charged with a crime, *and* he’s not a fugitive.

      The NBPP bounty is illegal and you know it.

      Also: Tell me what evidence you have the father is “blatently lying”? If it’s blatant, you must have *some* evidence (stamping your foot doesn’t count).

    • N.M.B.

      Bill, placing a bounty on an Innocent person (you do remember Innocent until proven Guilty in court of law concept?) is a crime.

      If A.G. Eric Holder was doing his job, instead of covering for his Racists buddies at N.B.P.P.; numerous members of the N.B.P.P. would now be behind bars, along with those who knowingly donated money to the illegal bounty.

      Regardless of Department of non-Justice, should something bad happen to Zimmerman as a result of that illegal bounty, all those involved will be open to a very expensive civil suit.

    • kerby

      the poster clearly says “dead or alive” you moron.

  • sailordude@yahoo.com

    Yahoo is running a story about how Zimmerman’s race is a complex issue, then start the story off that Zimmerman is white. The liberals (95% of the news is written by liberals) do not like white people, mainly because they don’t vote Democrat in large enough numbers, get it now? If you wonder why this is since they are also white, are they white? Or do they consider themselves a non white ethnicity? If they are ginning up race hatred to help Obama thats a big failure as well since this will make white voters less likely to support a black President who has twice now sided with blacks over whites in affairs he had no business being in.

    • SuperMechaPatton

      Spot on analysis. Obama’s got, quite possibly, the worst strategy team of any president, in history. Or at least the worst personal judgement.

      At least Hoover, just had a bad economy, this guy has that AND racial division. He even has a media in his pocket, that is actually exacerbating the racial divide, AS IF THAT HELPS HIM!

      • Mr. average dude


        > “the ravings of total lunatics.”

        the sentence fragment of Alinsky tactics.

        Rather than engaging in legitimate debate, Isolating someone and calling them names like “extremist,” “racist,” or “lunatic” is a classic Saul Alinsky tactic. The person then has to stop and defend against the accusation before resuming any legitimate conversation. Do you have something of value to say, or are you just going to call people lunatics?

        Once you recognize this tactic, you’ll notice its widespread use throughout politics and media. Call it out when you see it – the more people that recognize it, the less it will be legitimized.

  • 2conservative

    Has anyone EVER heard the term “white-hispanic” before the reporting on this case? I’m sure I haven’t. Does that imply you can’t be a racist unless you’re at least partially white? Are we to call the President “white-african”?

    • TheBastion

      Al Sharpton once stated on TV that only the majority can be racist and that by definition “minorities” cannot be racist. I guess by those standards only the Asians could be racist. By the way, I have seen it at least 30 times in the last week or so from both sides talking about race but never mentioning my Asian race (I’m sorry, I meant “white-asian” since my father was Vietnamese and my mother is white). About the only time you hear any stories about the Asian race(s) is about preferences for college admission!

    • HatKat

      White-african or racial huckster….either works.

    • RTC

      By their logic Obama should be a “White-African American”.

      • huntingmoose

        White-African seems more appropriate since there is not a lot of American-love and allegiance in Obama’s heart. Pretty sure he will agree –privately, with no mic open.

    • Grace

      Actually I don’t get the terms ‘ African-American’ or Hispanic-American’ or ‘Asian-American.’
      People who aren’t happy with just being an ‘American’ probably shouldn’t be here.

        I’m with you! Blacks simply resist becoming acclimated to the culture to which the rest of us are tuned in! They want the rest of our nation to be like them, we aren’t, and so they hate us!

        As for names — and I can’t remember the chronological in which they were put forth by the blacks — they wanted to be called Negro, then colored, then Afro-American, then black, then African-American. They seem to have no pride in whatever they are called.

        I have in me, Scottish, Irish, and Dutch blood. I’m proud to be an American, and a citizen of the United States of America!!!

      • Eddie2

        That’s very easy for someone who’s white to say. I am asked everyday where I am from, and everyday I say New York. And almost every time I say this, I am asked where I am REALLY from. As if I was not REALLY born and raised in America because I don’t look like the founders of this great country.

      • The Bruce

        I’m the same way. I don’t subscribe to hyphenated Americanism. Terms like these are invented by liberals to divide the country. We’re all Americans. We are not comprised of “different types” of Americans.

        If for some reason race is germane to the conversation then black, white, etc is perfectly fine.

      I think the point is, its a murder/man slaughter case not a hate crime. People have made several points about the black on black crime that goes unreported. The accused has been labled as white, when that is in doubt.

      To me it makes zero difference, the color of the peoples skin, even if it was racially motivated its still murder or manslaugher.

      • Patty Mudd

        What I take away from all this is that Organized Blackness is more upset by the supposition that Mr. Zimmerman is a racist than by the fact that Trayvon Martin is dead.

  • Facts

    So are people that believe words from an ex judge who is looking for an out for his son. The video doesn’t show a head wound or a broken nose. That video is the only “facts” we have to judge.

    • sailordude@yahoo.com

      he was interviewed for 5 hours that night and its in the police report that he had a broken nose, a wound to the back of his head, and grass stains on his back. THATS THE FACTS, “Facts”

    • Snitch-in-Time

      Oh spare me the breathless nonsense. Anyone who has had an injured nose knows it will stop bleeding once treated and paramedics wipe off the blood. Next, the scalp injury actually appears in video (see Daily Caller frame by fame analysis). What we see here is the left grasping at straws to try to cover up the latest fauxpas of the regime. Expect more of this nonsense from the left as they have an agenda and the facts have reduced the usefulness of this issue for that agenda. Thanks to conservatives who didn’t sit still and leave the liberals lies unchallenged, the chances of Rodney King incident rioting (LA riots) has been reduced significantly.

      • Debra Randolph

        There’s not a drop of blood on him get real your nose is broke in a fight blood is going to get on your shirt. Not to mention your nose will be red and swollen. NO remorse by Zimmerman is very telling.

    • Snitch-in-Time

      The guy posting under the name “Facts” is promoting a tin foil hat conspiracy theory. And no, the vidio does not show what Mr distorted “Facts” claims. Watch the video yourself and examine the frame by frame. You will find that Facts’s facts crumble to dust under examination. Typical liberal.

    • JohnF

      Send the lynch mobs home .. there are just as many reasonable guesses for self defense as there are against it. The only ‘facts’ are that someone is dead, and the person who did it was taken to the police station, in handcuffs, and then released because there was no evidence to contradict his claim of self defense.

    • Randolph Phillips

      FACTS, actually this report states the police first took Zimmerman to the hospital, whre he as examined. It is pretty certain the hospital would have cleaned up any blood on Zimmerman’s head and face before he left there.

      So later during interrogation none would have been visible.

  • sailordude@yahoo.com

    I think back to the film, Twelve Angry Men. If there were 12 black jurors would there be a black Henry Fonda to save a George Zimmerman? I don’t know, I’d like to think there would be, but in this racial climate it’s very hard to believe. Once whites lose their population base in the next 40 years do you think the country will be able to survive? I’m very pessimistic of that happening. Obama has definitely not brought the races together and all of those whites who voted for him to do so should be very disappointed now. I will not be voting for Obama for many reasons one being that I don’t believe he is for a unified America. Racial division furthers his party’s political agenda.

    • Eddie2

      Perish the thought of whites not being the majority in this country. Everyone will just have to get along a lot more and try to understand each other more. And quite honestly, looking at the facts of this case, how are you so sure Zimmerman is not guilty? So far I know that a 17-year-old black kid who was unarmed is dead. I know that a 911 call was made by the man who shot the kid and was asked to desist. The scuffle between Trayvon and Zimmerman is NOT fact. Zimmerman says it happened, but has not been corroborated. A video of Zimmerman in handcuffs exists exhibiting none of the wounds that he supposedly suffered. Are you sure Zimmerman’s not guilty?

      • Mike

        Eyewitnesses corroborated the story. Maybe his head wasn’t bloody because he was worked on by paramedics. So how long was he shouting for help before he shot him. That seemed like a long time. Maybe he should have stopped smacking Zimmerman.

      • Kevin

        He wasn’t asked to “desist”… Quit trying to sound like a lawyer/cop…

        Zimmerman was doing just what he had been doing for a while… Protecting his neighborhood… Trayvon was doing what he had been doing for awhile as well…

  • nomad

    The president is a black caucasian. The media says there is no wound but if you watch the video a couple of times and pay close attention you can see the same wound the officer was observing.

      Not to mention the officer(s) reported the injuries in the report… But, that doesn’t matter to liberals and clones.

    The only sad thing is that Martins parents didn’t bother to tell their son about how self defense laws in this country work. Zimmerman is not behind bars because self defense is legal, concealed cary is legal, and shooting Martin was not a crime but instead preventing one!

    I have an issue with your comment … skittles is spelled with a ‘k’ … everything else is right on!

    We’ve got Saint Martin, who was bringing skittles to starving children on his way to bible study (as portrayed in the press) … and then we’ve got sketchy accounts of what really happened from several different witnesses including Mr. Zimmerman, and while they don’t clearly indicate what DID happen, they do make it very clear that Trayvon was no saint, in his everyday life, or in this incident. I keep hearing that Trayvon was unarmed, but there is nothing that requires someone to be armed to be capable of deadly force … so is that really relevant? … and would Mr. Zimmerman have any way of knowing that?

    I’m tired of the emotional (and highly menacing, even threatening in many cases) reaction from Trayvon’s supporters … there are two sides to this story, everyone needs to let police investigate. The immediate ‘angry-mob’ reaction in support of Trayvon only serves to skew and confound the investigation. In fact, I would guess there is no one in Law Enforcement who wants any part of it because their lives will be threatened if the result doesn’t go the way of the angry mob.

    It’s really pathetic folks … we’re the higher species, were supposed to be able to temper our emotional reactions through rational thought. I truly hope rational minds will prevail.

      Actually, the Sanford Police did their “job” and bungled the job. This is part of the reason why their has been such a huge outcry over this case. The fact is the number one thing that made Trayvon look suspicious was the color of his skin. It is pure and simple to any minority, and very uncomfortable for most white people to admit this.

    Facts can sometimes be very inconvenient.

    Look carefully at the 0:34 mark on this video. The Date/Time stamp has been carefully blocked out for the ENTIRE video except this single second or two.
    Time/Date stamp CLEARLY says DECEMBER. He’s also handcuffed in the video, but he was NOT under arrest when he was brought in after the shooting last month (February) so it is unlikely that he would have been handcuffed. Sure they “confirmed that it was Zimmerman in the video,” only they conveniently did not say WHEN it was from. Interesting note: Zimmerman had been arrested a few years back (when he looked like this) for assaulting an officer. Could this be that video and has ABC DELIBERATELY and DESPERATELY tried to pass this video off as video from last month in order to further hide their absolute jump-to-conclusions-liberal bias?
