George Zimmerman Trayvon Martin, In the moments before Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman fatally shot 17-year-old unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, the teen repeatedly slammed Zimmerman’s head into the ground and threatened his life, Zimmerman’s father claims.
In an exclusive interview with myFOXorlando, Robert Zimmerman detailed his son’s account of the night, claiming Martin beat his son for over a minute and told him something along the lines of, “You’re going to die tonight.”
George Zimmerman has been the subject of a media firestorm since the shooting, with many calling for his arrest in the case.
George Zimmerman has claimed he shot Martin in self-defense, and so far has not been charged with any crime due to Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law. The law allows the use of deadly force in self-defense if an individual reasonably feels threatened.
Martin’s supporters, including a host of outspoken celebrities and civil rights leaders, don’t believe George Zimmerman’s story. They believe race played a role in the shooting, and are calling for George Zimmerman to be arrested and prosecuted.
In his first interview, Robert Zimmerman told myFOXorlando he decided to speak out for his son against the advice of police.
