I owe George Zimmerman an apology

I have been siding against George Zimmerman from almost day one in this case. I have seen the testimony in the courtroom and have still been on the side of a conviction of George Zimmerman.

Today I watched this video of George Zimmerman, the day after the incident, before he was lawyered up, walking the detectives through the events of that night.

I saw this video last year when it was first released. Now with the neighbors testifying in court telling what they saw that night, this video is put in context.

He takes the detectives through every moment that led up to the shooting.  This video would without question bring back a not guilty verdict from the jury.

This video makes somethings very clear!

First,  Zimmerman did not follow Trayvon to the back of the houses.  Prior to seeing this I was under the impression that he followed Trayvon.  He got out of his car and walked to find a street sign and address so he could tell the police operator where to send the police.

Second, Zimmerman didn't confront Trayvon.  He was walking back to his truck when Trayvon approached him and confronted Zimmerman.

Third, Trayvon was beating Zimmerman's head on the sidewalk which certainly could have killed him.

Finally, Zimmerman didn't go for his gun first. Trayvon reached for Zimmerman's gun.  Zimmerman only took out his gun and used it because Trayvon was going for it.  If Trayvon didn't go for Zimmerman's gun he would not have been shot.

There are several other points made in this video that show George Zimmerman is not guilty of murder.

Watch the video yourself, leave your comments and share this post with the video.  This video is important for everyone who is following this case and it needs to be seen.
