George Zimmerman Following Trayvon Martin On Video

Subtitled: One Of Numerous Pieces Of Evidence That The Jury Disregarded

Willisnewton worked on a team analyzing the clubhouse videos.  Their completed project is on video titled “The Death of Trayvon Martin.”

Willisnewton posted here and I mentioned that in a portion of the East Pool Hall video, I saw a figure leaving the mail shed with car lights slowly following.

Since that time, willisnewton has asked, and I have promised, to either give the time for when I see that or point it out otherwise.   The below video is of that clip, along with what happened at trial pertaining to it.  It begins at about 7:10 p.m.

At trial, by an objection by the defense, sustained by Judge Nelson, the prosecution was forbidden to have the witness say whether he saw anything in the video.  He could only confirm that the camera records the mail-shed area.

At closing argument, Bernie de la Rionda tried compensating for the lack of witness testimony by telling the jury what the video reveals. Prosecutors saw what I see.

The video below also shows the clip in slow-motion, and in an enhanced, or brighten version so that the figure is more clear.

During their investigation, the Department of Justice should re-enact by going to the Retreat at Twin Lakes at night.  Having someone of Trayvon’s height wear khaki-colored pants and white gym shoes, they should leave out of the mail shed to see if it duplicates what the clubhouse video shows.  Along with this, the Department of Justice should coincide the video with what George Zimmerman tells dispatch at 7:10 p.m., the time that the video captures a figure leaving the mail shed, followed by Zimmerman in his truck.  Contrary to George Zimmerman’s statement to dispatch, Trayvon was not walking around looking at houses.

  1. Unless the DOJ does look at this and use it to try him on murder 1, I’m sorry, but I find this kind of stuff agonizing. It doesn’t show me anything I didn’t already know and it doesn’t change anything. It is just too frustrating for me anymore. No one listens, no one looks, no one cares.

      Maybe those in authority who we want to listen, to look, to care, are not moving fast enough to give us satisfaction, but equality, justice and fairness, have never been achieved overnight.

      There are times when we need to rest, but never retreat.

      So true. The saying “justice delayed is justice denied” is actually from the accused point of view when they are innocent. They don’t want their lives distracted by being in court and/or jail if they cannot make bail. It also applies to pending court matters.

      As it pertains to investigation, investigators must take time to not only get all the evidence, but also know how it will be presented at court. The feds use all means to get evidence, even going undercover if they have to.

    Xena,

    Because of your outstanding, slow motion screen capture of Trayvon leaving the mail kiosk with gz following him by car, we really do have to question whether Trayvon EVER circled gz’s vehicle, etc. Perhaps, gz just continued following Trayvon slowly and only stopped to get out of his car when Trayvon ran.

    In other words, gz was simply making up the story (on his NEN call) of Trayvon “approaching” him as he was driving slowly BEHIND Trayvon.

      If anything, Trayvon slowed down walking and walked in back of GZs’ truck to cross the street, and GZ called it “circling.”

      Willisnewton and the guys who worked on the clubhouse videos think that after GZ drove beyond the mail shed, that he made a U turn and parked, facing Trayvon.

      In other words, gz was simply making up the story (on his NEN call) of Trayvon “approaching” him as he was driving slowly BEHIND Trayvon.

      Sure he did, just like he was telling dispatch around 7:10 p.m. that Trayvon was looking at all the houses, although Trayvon was coming out of the mail shed then and GZ was there right behind him in his truck.

      GZ’s call was a cop setup for a “good shoot.” If he had not shot Trayvon, he was hoping that the arriving cop would. If that had happened, then GZ would use it against the SPD.

      • Xena does the can the DOJ only charge GZ with a hate crime? I keep hearing that that’s the only charge they can charge him with . With them having to prove GZ killed Trayvon specifically because he was black. I believe he profiled him because he was black, but I believe he murdered him for screaming so loud and if the police had arrived and saw gz in mist of his dubious acts they would shoot him.
        Also was his phone records ever released? He told the cops to call to him when they got there, I always wondered if they ever did and perhaps his phone could have been on vibrate alerting him that the police were close because he literally killed trayvon a minute after approaching him. I know phone records won’t show a missed call but it’s always something I’ve thought about.
        And the jury disregarded so much evidence because they ate up gz story, thats the only way to get to a not guilty verdict. That plus racism, and stronger personalities to convince other jurors to vote their way. Juror B37 said they looked through all the evidence and watched his re enactment walk through/ his interview with singleton and serino but I don’t believe her, how could you watch and pay attention to gz saying he pinned trayvons arm and aimed his gun so he wouldn’t shoot his own hand! If you are fighting for your life you would not be thinking of such things. It makes me so upset they ignored all the Evidence. I believed the state had enough to go for murder but even themselves missed so many crucial points to make to the jury. It’s either they wanted to lose, or they didn’t understand themselves.

          The federal government has jurisdiction to charge Zimmerman with violating Trayvon’s civil rights. That is generally understood as a hate-crime.

          I agree that Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his race. He referred to Trayvon in the plural before Trayvon ran, and after Trayvon ran. He did not see Trayvon as an individual.

          Also was his phone records ever released?

          They were released but not brought up in court.

          And the jury disregarded so much evidence because they ate up gz story, thats the only way to get to a not guilty verdict.

          It is my impression that Juror B37 was the jury. It was her job to guide and convince any juror not agreeing with her to do so, and she did that by interpreting law to them. Juror B37 presented Trayvon as a citizen with no rights whose life was not worthy. She was prejudiced coming in, believing that Zimmerman had suffered enough by being charged and had learned his lesson.

          • It certainly seems that B37 was the jury. I really hope the DOJ is still conducting their investigation and will federally charge Gz! There has been so much that has come out post verdict that I know people are sending all info to them to review.

            I read an article about a month ago on why the Doj must bring charges, don’t know if you’ve read it, its a bit long but informative. I also hope the feds will do a change of venue because their is no way to get a fair and impartial jury in that small county of seminole.

  6. In my eyes and from the beginning after hearing about Trayvon for the first time was the middle of March, so I believe they wanted it to go away. The Martins weren’t going to accept this and they got started to at least see that george was brought to court, tried for their sons death. The prosecutor had plenty of evidence that george stalked and murdered Trayvon because he simply wanted to.

    I’ve never been able to see it any other way, especially him on the plone with 911, what he says, what he does after and the calls that came in, I had no doubt they had enogh to convict him.

    I hate to bring up another trial right now that is continuing to go on and am absolutely baffled, how it is going and how the zimmerman trial went. The 12 jurors said this person showed no remorse. I disagree with that, but they put that in their reaoning for convicting.

    Now, we have an idiot that calls 911 constantly over every little thing as to the neighbors garage door is open and it’s usually closed. HOW STUPID!!
    Then his 911 call about Trayvon. Anyone that wasn’t a racist could see, that suspicious to meant black.
    Most of the women on a blog were all over Trayvon, WHY????
    Then they have 6 white, yes I say white, because george say’s on his license that he is white, even though, he said after that he was hispanic and that couldn’t make him a racist.
    But, the 5 plus 1 white women wanted on the jury and they were just as ready to set george free as the ones that were wriing hateful things about Trayvon in the beginning. We probably had those women on the jury.

    He should have been charged with 1st, IMO.
    If he had killed 3 the same way, it would have been 1 st degree.
    ONE innocent life taken IS too many.

    NOW, like in the other case that is going on, I seem to think showing remorse counts.
    She SHOWED remorse.
    George on the other hand, none whatsoever, NONE.
    The jury heard him say that, NO REGRETS!! It was Gods plan. You can’t question God’s plan
    and even said at that time the gun wasn’t his. It was God’s????

    If he had been charged with First degree murder, there would have been 12 on the jury, that’s why they only charged him with second. This is all my own opinion
    It is so very unjust and it isn’t over.

    Why is it that they can do a real investigation on even some cold cases, BUT do a shotty, half ass job on others? Because they are liars, they want us to hear, what they want us to believe.
    It ain’t happening!!

    • @Lolypop. Thanks for expressing yourself from your heart.

      Two on the Zimmerman jury wanted guilty of manslaughter. One wanted guilty of 2nd degree murder. Three wanted not guilty. Of the three that wanted not guilty was juror B37. This was going into the jury room before deliberations.

      In the end, there were five for not guilty, and one for 2nd degree murder, and wanting clarification for manslaughter. Why do we think that Maddy, Juror B29, wanted clarification for manslaughter? Probably because since she couldn’t convince the other 2 that Zimmerman committed 2nd degree murder, that she could get them to change their vote BACK to manslaughter.

      But, someone on that jury said they could not find him guilty of anything. Rather than return a specific question to the judge to clarify manslaughter, they took another vote. The jury foreperson was wrong to do that.

      Maddy sat for 30 minutes before giving in and voting not guilty. Her reason? She said that the way the law was read to her, she could not find Zimmerman guilty unless he had intent. Then we go to Juror B37’s AC360 interview where she says that “George” had good intentions.

      Scary. Frightening. These are citizens of Florida who do not understand self-defense and manslaughter law. They might as well write “Shoot Me” on their foreheads, because that is the power they are giving to anyone with a gun in the jurisdiction of Florida when there are no direct eye witnesses and the perpetrator claims self-defense.

  7. That’s so true Xena,
    HOW did they go from manslaughter to not guilty, especially him claiming self defense and we knew he lied several times. They had to know the lies Shellie told were coming from george.
    B37 probably lied big time to the other 3. I wish that the other 3 could do something now.
    Remember when they said Casey lied to the police so she had to do probation. She wasn’t under oath either.
    george has never had to pay for lies, except his bond was set higher. Big deal!
    You’re right scary and frightening.

You know what’s funny, witness 1,2,3,19, Jane Surdyka, Mary Cutcher, Selma Mora, Austin Mclendon, all had a sense of remorse that they wished they could of helped Trayvon. I never got that felling from Jon & Jeannie Manalo, John & Amanda Good, & definitely not from Jenna & Jeremy.

    That just tears me up. Don’t think for one minute that george was going to allow that, not at all. He probably knew Trayvon had gone to the store bought something and was on his way home.
    george lied from the beginning and I believe there was a cover up and there’s still a cover up.
    Like Trayvon’s Dad said, I WONDER why they’re trying to protect george.

    I will always believe that george drove around stalking Trayvon, got out of his car, and when Trayvon walked by he jumped from behind a car, a tree, a house, because I believe he was hiding then attacked Trayvon in a way that he could not go anywhete and just like george said,
    “I Shot Him” GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
    Why didn’t the police hancuff him take him in and arrest him, as they should?

    They didn’t ask then what happened and if they did, his delf defense claim doesn’t
    mean a damn thing.
    He murdered Trayvon and thought it would all go away.
    WELL, it isn’t!!
    This IS a cover up and some day very soon I hope george is put so far away, george doesn’t deserve to be free, he murdered Trayvon in cold blood
    Trayvon and his family need justice. This wasn’t justice!!
    I hope that they are investigating B37. If not they should be.
