Trying to explain to -- now on why he killed -- -- -- for months ago in Sanford Florida.
Craig tests the Zimmerman tapes against one of Zimmerman harshest critics the attorney for the dead teenagers -- Didn't.
And he -- -- Feel like -- -- it looked at it he said you can have gotten.
-- -- -- you reach the Phillies aren't going down side.
And I grabbed it and I just got my car.
A compelling video re creation of what happened that tragic night of February 26.
George Zimmerman tries to explain to police why and how he killed -- -- on -- right at this spot but many people say.
His statements to police only point out contradictions.
When you consider the stand your ground -- critic you can't be the person who pursues.
By an individual.
-- try to stay in the visual.
And say our stand my ground there Lieberman's own words could prove -- provoked a confrontation -- -- Marten.
Stalking and pursuing the teenager in the Sanford Florida neighborhood he was staying with family friends according to attorney Ben -- And current Israel that was -- in Europe.
Now of course yeah I didn't consultant -- He made a decision that trip from Martin was a criminal that cherry bomb Martin was up to no good where will he stand now he's.
-- -- This leads directly.
To the room where he was coming from.
So that makes a lot more sense to me eighteen year old C -- -- Clinton whose brother Austin witnessed the deadly confrontations.
Says the location Zimmerman first spotted Javon is a well known shortcut to the seven elevenths out of somebody's lingering in this area between the homes.
This is the direct path that locals take in order to get access to.
The commercial area very.
But he's contributing now.
It does come -- you can download his feelings.
-- amendment makes a pretty compelling.
Scenario says he circled around my car in a threatening way again is the common sense test.
If somebody is circling your card you feel -- threat and why do you get out your car.
Well you volatile political and -- if we don't digital camera when mark sir what are your efforts.
-- -- -- There -- dispatch asked are you pursuing him and he says yes and we know.
He just say a -- of is get in the way he's going in and so we also know that -- -- is -- -- on the phone with his France.
And she says she told -- bond to run.
Actually -- always to the street.
And I was gonna give -- this time charts.
So what -- but you sort of struck -- I don't know that should cut through this sort of of the actress.
And is recorded statement to the non emergency line Zimmerman states that he left this truck and -- to this area to find an address but in fact.
This area is the back of the apartments and it doesn't post the address -- I don't Q.
-- of the police dispatcher that you have a good.
When you get the car Crump says Zimmerman was parked on the route term bond would likely take to the apartment.
Some -- searching for.
Users can help public's love that.
That is when he grabbed pole ice actually sit up and that's when he grabbed me by the head and tried to.
Slammed my head down.
Based the home his statements.
You would -- -- -- where have all -- of injuries to -- pain.
Where's the evidence try to -- mark and never knew who this person was -- on -- him.
We believe he went to his grave not knowing who do strange -- worst.
Who was chasing that -- -- who confronted him of -- objective evidence they have that George Zimmerman pursue trade -- one.
You know like Craig -- strikes -- watching the tape and I think Ben Graham does a great job but so does George Zimmerman you have to say that.
It's almost as it he had just enough knowledge of the law of self defense.
And stand your ground that when he talked to those cops the initial interviews he knew exactly that he was setting up -- zone defense what do you think.
-- exactly right that's what.
-- -- says he he had just enough knowledge.
To establish true -- with the attacker term bond was in this suspicious area term bond was staking him out reaching his waist band.
He was trying to establish Javon is the attacker because he knew that that's the only way -- -- be able to use that stand your ground defense.
And yet Craig what you don't see in any of that tape you don't hear and any thing is George Zimmerman ever saying this is a black guy.
Race played no part.
And you know he says suspicious he didn't use black -- -- use a pejorative.
He didn't say African American nothing there was no reference to the race.
Of the victim well he does in -- say the the officer asked him.
What he had to identify the this person he does say that he is a black person.
But he never identifies himself as the neighborhood watch captain and he never says to the police who is on the line with.
That he hasn't gone either problem and the -- asked him is he black white or Hispanic residents yes -- think one of the other.
