On April 20, 2012, the accused murderer of 17 year old Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman took the stand, testified in support of his request for bail and proceeded to lie.
This is not opinion. This is fact. And here is the proof.
Mr. Zimmerman testified at his bail hearing: "I did not know how old [Trayvon] was. I thought he was just a little bit younger than I am... ."
Mr. Zimmerman was 28 years old when he confronted Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012 and contrary to his self-serving and false testimony in court, Mr. Zimmerman, in truth, believed Trayvon to be just a teenager when he shot and killed him.
How can we possibly know without any reasonable doubt that Mr. Zimmerman lied on the stand?
Because when Mr. Zimmerman called 911 on February 26th to report he was suspicious of Trayvon, the police dispatcher specifically asked Mr. Zimmerman, "how old would you say he looks," and Mr. Zimmerman responded: "He's got button on his shirt. Late teens." The police dispatcher heard Mr. Zimmerman's response and confirmed, "Late teens ok."
In fact, Trayvon had just celebrated his 17th birthday three weeks before George Zimmerman killed him.
Clearly, Mr. Zimmerman had no rational motive whatsoever to mislead the police dispatcher (or anyone else for that matter) as to Trayvon's age before he killed him. In fact, the record of Mr. Zimmerman's 911 call demonstrates that he was attempting to give the police dispatcher as accurate a description of Trayvon as possible, describing Trayvon's clothes from hoodie to sneakers.
It is only now, two months after killing this unarmed teenager, that Mr. Zimmerman has a motive to lie as to his belief as to Trayvon's age when he killed him. Mr. Zimmerman is shamelessly attempting to convince the public -- including his future jury pool -- that he believed he was confronting and killing an adult peer, rather than a teenage boy.
Since Mr. Zimmerman's claim of self defense must largely rely on his testimony as to the circumstances of his killing Trayvon Martin, the irrefutable proof that Mr. Zimmerman has already lied in court about his belief as to Trayvon's age should make his further testimony highly suspect.
