George Zimmerman says that Trayvon Martin punched him in the nose, knocked him down, straddled him, and was banging his head against the concrete sidewalk, then putting both hands over his nose and mouth. While squirming to ‘get his head off the sidewalk’ (how he had the composure to know that his head was close to grass, but couldn’t squirm/buck/kick to get Trayvon Martin off is beyond me, but anyway) he says that Trayvon Martin noticed the gun.
Now, the gun is black. As noted, George Zimmerman was carrying it in an inside waistband holster. Which was black. George Zimmerman was wearing it basically near his back pocket. If George Zimmerman was on his back on the ground, his body is pretty much resting on top of the gun. Check out the re-enactment video, and you’ll see that George Zimmerman reaches behind him to indicate where his gun was.
First off, please explain to me how Martin was able to see this black gun, in a black inside waistband holster, which is underneath George Zimmerman in the dark.
Second, please tell me how the hell George Zimmerman is supposed to be able to ‘pin’ Trayvon Martin’s arm with his right arm, then with the same arm reach behind him to pull the gun out of the holster, aim, and shoot a perfect shot. Unless George Zimmerman’s right arm unhinges at the elbow, it’s physically impossible. His elbows would have to bend -out- to get to the gun – which means Trayvon Martin’s arm is no longer restrained.
If so…tell me, what was Martin doing while George Zimmerman was trying to get his gun out? At the very least he had one hand/arm free: Martin would have used his left hand to get to the gun – you’ll see pretty quickly that trying with his right arm is pretty much impossible, and even if it wasn’t, there’s no way George Zimmerman would be able to ‘pin’ the arm. So Martin had his right arm completely free even if George Zimmerman somehow kept his left arm pinned.
Notice in the reinactment that he reaches behind him and not on his hip where he claims the gun is. If this is true then how did Trayvon Martin feel the gun or even reach down using his right arm to reach to his left and underneath George Zimmerman while punching him, pinching his nose and covering his mouth?
Martin had, accordingly to George Zimmerman, done the following, unprovoked: Hit him in the nose so hard he knocked him down, straddled him, banged his head repeatedly against a cement sidewalk, tried to suffocate him. But when George Zimmerman goes to get his gun out and shoot, Trayvon Martin just sits there?
And that’s before we get to the ridiculous idea of Trayvon Martin – upon seeing the gun – instead of continuing the assault or making an immediate mad scramble for the gun, decides to sit up and make a bad-ass quote before ‘taking his hand off George Zimmerman’s mouth and sliding it down his chest’. I mean, it makes no sense. Why would Trayvon Martin run his hands down George Zimmerman’s chest? The gun was behind and underneath George. Why would he say anything at all? He’d just grab the gun.
And of course we have to consider that while Trayvon Martin was supposedly straddling and pummeling George Zimmerman, George Zimmerman’s hands/arms apparently weren’t free to punch back / block / remove hands from nose/mouth etc – George Zimmerman says all he could do was squirm to get his head of the sidewalk. Which means Trayvon Martin had to have been sitting or otherwise restraining George Zimmerman’s arms with his legs.
If so….how does George Zimmerman pin Trayvon Martin’s arm, and how is he then able to get his gun out?
