He was out of breath from running away, and scared, she said, and decided not to keep running because he was close to the house where he was staying.
And as Zimmerman drew closer, the girl said, Martin called out," Why you following me for?" according to the recording.
"I hear this man, like this old man, say,'What are you doing around here?' " the girl said.
Zimmerman has a very high pitched voice. LOL
The girl said she called out to Martin, asking what was happening, but he didn't answer. The next thing she heard was a bumping sound, followed by what might have been a scuffle.
That's when Martin was in the process of assulting Zimmerman.
"I could hear it a little bit,'Get off, get off,' then the phone just hung up," the girl said.
"a little bit" LOL I can't wait for the cross examination on her. LOL
So there goes the idea that Martin was disoriented and didn't know where Greens front door was. It was probably Zimmerman saying "get off, "get off." LOL
I get all giddy just thinking about Crump putting her on the stand.........I can't stop laughing!!!!!
If Crump has even half a brain he won't put this little liar on the stand. Her story has changed multiple times. The defense will chew her up and spit her out.

There's bad apples in both parties, Angela Corey happens to be one in the Republican. Yes Zimmerman was over charged., whether or not he should ever have been in the first place. It's true what they say "In order to achieve what they call justice, they created injustice."these cases just reek of huge egos and politics that are abhorrent. And of course the "race hustlers" in the Zimmerman case none other than Jackson and Sharpton.

This "child" is the murderer of another child. I'm sorry for the circumstances that made him what he is, but it is unlikely that he can be rehabilitated, IMO.

there are thieves and criminals in every race and color. I totally agree. But you don't say you want to run your car over a particular race!
Some of the earlier vile racist posts are absolutely deplorable. It makes me sick to think that in this day and age and century vile racists still exist!...

all we wanted was that the process of justice should be followed, if...

...sorry if that offends you, but that's what I feel...
LIAR... the PROCESS was being followed. some folks just couldn't deal with the TRUTH... about what happened that night or about what type of person THEIR son WAS.
and now, after there has been NO evidence forthcoming to dispute GZ's story (they met, he was attacked, he was on the bottom, the gun THEN came into play, he feared FOR HIS life, HE FIRED one shot, at close range, TM was killed, period, END OF STORY), you'all STILL can't/won't accept the TRUTH!
that also makes u a LIAR, a bigot, a domestic terrorist sympathizer, an anarchist (defying the Rule of Law), and a chimp.

Theyvon's girlfriend said Zimmerman asked him what he was doing there and Martin then put up his hood and didn't answer. That would have been a great time to tell Zimmerman he was a guest there, instead of looking more shady.
seems like EVERY TIME this gal re-rells her story, or it gets retold, it gets longer and more informative abour what TM said, what GZ said, and now, even what TM supposedly DID.
her first version, that I read about, was TM told her he was TURNING BACK, she then heard 'something' and then the phone went dead "like it was dropped".
that tells me:
GZ lost sight of TM and foolishly went to determine, NOT CONFRONT, where he was;
TM, having TURNED BACK instead of walking 70 paces HOME, then, possibly, turned a corner;
as DID GZ;
and they 'BUMPED into' each other;
GZ maintained his grip on his cell, maybe because he WASN'T running;
TM lost the grip on his cell, maybe because he WAS RUNNING;
THAT was the 'sound' DeeDee heard, plus the cell dropping and going dead. she also may have heard, while the phone was falling, TM say something like 'WTF?..." as he would have been startled by the suddenness of the 'meeting'. that would also explain, IN PART, his REACTION (when a human is scared, it is either Fight or Flight, TM obviously chose Fight).
SIMPLE HUMAN NATURE.

We're seriously bored of your racist biased rants against an AMERICAN CITIZEN (unlike you, who probably isn't even here legally), who stood up to a thug and took out the trash. Careful, Bini..........we're tired of stinky indians whose dirtbag families are stealing American jobs by working for pennies.

Not hardly, there is no "twinkie Defense" in this case because you have no idea what it even means.

A claim by a criminal defendant that at the time of the crime, he/she was of diminished mental capacity due to intake of too much sugar, as from eating "Twinkies," sugar-rich snacks
