Zimmerman is in Court today on Bond Hearing. Thinkprogress Reported:
"While interviewing Zimmerman's current wife, the state proscecutor read from an affidavit by the ex-girlfriend. She alleged in the sworn statement that he "pushed her," then slapped her with an open hand to the mouth and "asked her how it felt." She said he "picked me up and threw me on the bed" and then "grabbed me again."Zimmerman's wife responded that her husband was simply trying to "protect himself from being attacked by her."
Re-read that last sentence: Zimmerman's wife responded that her husband was simply trying to "protect himself from being attacked by her." Does that sound a wee bit familiar?
George Zimmerman took the witness stand at his own bond hearing this morning in a Florida courtroom and said he was sorry to the parents of Trayvon Martin.
"I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son,"
Zimmerman said. "I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit
younger than I am. And I did not know that he was armed or not."
- Zimmerman on why he had to kill Trayvon Martin in order to determine if Trayvon was armed
Was that a blatant LIE in that BS apology? Zimmerman said, "I thought he was a little bit younger than I am."
Yet on the 911 call Zimmerman knew Trayvon was no where near Z's age
911 dispatcher: "How old would you say he is?"
Zimmerman: "He's got something on his shirt. About like his late teens."
911 dispatcher: "Late teens?"
Zimmerman: "Uh, huh."
Zimmerman is 28 years old and he will be 29 years old in October.
Hmmm .... "I thought he was a little be younger than I am."
