Another Witness In The Trayvon Martin Case

Another witness corroborates Zimmerman's account of the events that led to Trayvon Martin's death. This time, it's a young teen who lives in the area. Unfortunately, the media may have violated ethics standards by publishing the under aged witness's name. I have removed it in quoting this ABC News article:

In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old [Ed: name omitted because of age], told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman's description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin.

Also note in the same article, Martin's girlfriend's account of what she heard over the phone corroborates Zimmerman's account! Zimmerman claims he lost sight of Martin and started to return to his vehicle. It was then that Martin approached Zimmerman, asked him if him had a problem, and then attacked:

Martin's girlfriend had said in a recording obtained exclusively by ABC News that she heard Martin ask Zimmerman "why are your following me, and then the man asked, what are you doing around here." She then heard a scuffle break out and the line went dead.

"Why are you following me?" Other accounts have Martin using expletives. But giving him the benefit of doubt, and given Zimmerman was acting as a neighborhood Watch volunteer, the response is appropriate: "What are you doing around here?"

Martin didn't have to answer. He could have walked away. Or, he could have explained he was new in the neighborhood. Or, he could have told Zimmerman to f--k off and mind his own business.

But instead, he opted to viciously attack Zimmerman. At which point, Zimmerman had no choice but to defend himself.

In related news, The Daily Caller has discovered a second Twitter account Trayvon Martin used. A whole different image of Martin is emerging. The question is, will it get out to the public in time to save Zimmerman from being lynched?
