Check out this newly released footage of George Zimmerman reenacting the infamous altercation that took Trayvon Martin’s life.
The video was posted on a website started by Zimmerman’s defense team. In it, Zimmerman says Martin was the aggressor, and that it was when he saw and reached for his gun that Zimmerman grabbed it and shot the teenager.
Two large butterfly bandages are also visible on the back of Zimmerman’s head.
“On the tape, Zimmerman did a reenactment of the scuffle with Martin in the moments before he shot the 17-year-old from Miami. Zimmerman said Martin kept “slamming and slamming” his head on the sidewalk. “It felt like my head was going to explode,” he said.
Zimmerman told police the confrontation began when he saw Martin walking toward him on the evening of Feb. 26.
Zimmerman had already called 911 after spotting the teen in the neighborhood. Police say Martin was staying at his father’s girlfriend’s townhome in the Retreat at Twin Lakes, a gated community in Sanford. The teen was walking back to the home after going to a nearby convenience store.”
In other Trayvon Martin-related news, controversial Sanford, FL police chief Bill Lee has been fired. Lee was widely criticized for his department’s initial handling of the case.
