Tayvon's Martin's Killer's Racist Slur
ARREST GEORGE ZIMMERMAN
"F..cking Coons," says Zimmerman
During his call to 911, George Zimmerman, the killer of Trayvon Martin clearly utters "f**king coons". You can hear the tape here. Forward the tape to about 2:10 and you will hear Zimmerman describing to the dispatcher where Martin is headed. Trayvon starts to run from Zimmerman, and Zimmerman says, "Sh*t he's running." The dispatcher ask Zimmerman which way Martin is running and at 2:21 in the tape, you can clearly hear Zimmerman say under his breath, "F**king coons." Coons is racial slur that has been used to describe African Americans for centuries.
There are several other factors here that make this interesting because Zimmerman has said that he was protecting himself from Martin. However, it is clear that he is pursuing the teen. Trayvon, according to his girlfriend, who was on the phone with him at the time was terrified of Zimmerman and decided to run after Zimmerman started to pursue him.
With all the new evidence that has been discovered over the past few days there is little doubt that Zimmerman should be in jail and Bill Lee, Jr., the Sanford Police Chief, should be fired. Trayvon Martin was running for his life from a racist megalomanic. This is beyond tragic; it is murder and a cover-up and all of those involved to should be held responsible.
