-- today's prosecutors played Jordan Zimmermann is not 11 call to the police on the -- -- the shooting as well as different interviews.
That investigators conducted with him in the following days it appears they wanted to focus on.
Whatever discrepancies they may have had as it relates to his accounts -- I asked George about this last summer and -- and what he told me.
Watch he's running he said that in this -- Is there any chance in retrospect did you look back on that night and what happened in the nation obviously paying a lot of attention to us.
Trying to maybe get into the mindset -- also and I have learned that bad trade bond was speaking to his girlfriend supposedly the time.
But maybe he was afraid -- you didn't know who you war.
You don't think -- why do you think that he was running that.
I've gotten maybe consider running but he was more patience is running yes.
That he is like skipping and going away quickly.
-- but he wasn't.
Running out of fear.
Can tell the difference but he wasn't running he wasn't he wasn't actually running you know some papers that's what you said that the dispatcher as you thought it was right.
Let me ask you this that at that point we can hear the -- buckling of the seatbelt here you opening -- car door.
And -- -- asked you at that point mr.
came out of a very key moment that everyone in the media focused on and is.
Dispatcher asked you are you following him.
Can you said yes explain that.
I meant that I was.
Going in the same direction -- -- To keep.
An eye on him so I could tell the police where he was going I didn't mean that I was actually pursuing.
-- quick programming -- make sure to tune in this Wednesday night 9 PM right here on -- we will play the full interview that I did with George -- back in July last year now.
Let's get back with joining us from fox 35 Orlando -- boy Peter Johnson junior and Anna -- and -- -- is with us.
Aren't I wanna play one additional thing and -- a power -- to the life issue and that is the lead detective.
Said that George -- today was consistent.
And truthful watch the truthful part.
The fact that tourism and sent to you thank god I hope somebody didn't videotape the event to the whole event.
What you stated what does that indicate to you.
Her views on the truth.
Or it was a complete.
Pathological liar -- want to pretend.
Now let's look at it.
There was everything else in this case where you got the inside that you might be a pathological liar.
Not affect everything you told you to do you had been cooperated by other evidence you already aware.
I'll -- investigation that he was unaware of correct.
-- -- -- in the lead and.
-- -- says that he's consistent.
And that he tells the truth.
You remind the -- that -- up to them and not lead investigator and if you look at the different interviews today you saw the demeanor of the detectives changing as they evolve as they got more information by the last one there confronting him with different things.
That didn't make sense here we're talking at the things that.
Are lies not everything that he says -- -- I do not think at all that he went in there with the intent to kill this kid but.
What he didn't tell the truth about are things such as he is getting out of his car to follow him he's not going to look an address to -- to me.
He later says that he is going back to his car and that's when he is jumped by treatment Martin no -- been consistent throughout the -- just because they're consistent doesn't mean you're telling the truth do you have any evidence added together you have any evidence counsel to our -- -- another reason that he's saying he's not gonna be -- reason he doesn't say that he's going back to the car and take have been -- not tell the more I'll be.
Is because he's following the and you put that would -- -- -- who does a lot of issues about her I realize that but I believe her I think that's evidence about that.
Let me go to a big point that I thought came out today I'm not sure a lot of people picked up behind he said before he knew that there was have a recording of his voice.
Screaming he said to the police he was screaming help help help.
Does that help us credibility people oh sure and he -- people different accounts up to fifty times city was screaming.
For help you know I'm still focusing on this notion that their lives and that waited for -- to expose some we -- exposed -- We've we've talked about deduction we talked about induction we've talked about logic -- we've even talked about common sense although not a lot of that in terms of the actual.
Evidence the evidence that we've heard so far is consistent with self defense and the issue becomes how far.
In order to act.
In self defense.
And was it -- strip.
With the risk that he was facing at this time now.
He's made clear that he was afraid and I think he did -- you that he was gonna go unconscious he did say that any citizen is -- -- -- on the ground repeatedly there is no objective standard in the state of Florida.
About how much pressure per square inch should be placed on your head as it slammed.
On the ground and his injuries are consistent with what he's saying -- if it takes yet as this.
I was on the side of the face him there's there's lacerations on the back and ahead there's black and -- is there's marks on his body.
There were not such marks.
Martin there is no witness that says that mr.
Martin was -- law.
The evidence shows that mr.
Zimmerman -- was polonium was the victim of the -- One last four from -- if I can Valerie.
The standard of proof is on.
The prosecution in this case.
After the testimony of that one eyewitness last week that is a very high bar overcome at this point in terms of reasonable doubt.
What is the consensus among those in the courtroom.
I think the consensus right now is that the prosecutors have a lot of work.
To do ahead of them also are going back to him.
The Georgian women changing his story will even -- in those reporting you know I have a bad memory and by the way when he did say that -- Martin cannot Martin's father which is shaking his head like that.
But he -- you know I did I do have a bad -- and that's why.
Some of the stories to keep on changing.
There but I think we're looking at small details here and I think the big picture is an eyewitness.
Ground and pound -- and down.
That's hard to overcome you have to look at together no witness corroborates and that his head was being pummeled -- the ground no witness -- -- that he would hand over -- map that is -- over the injuries and a question of degree this is a very technical case.
And it's a question of degree but if he didn't actually feel recently that he was in fear of death of massive injury that makes him culpable that's -- the -- -- corroborates the swinging witness -- -- the fact that mr.
Was down on the ground for a prolonged period of time.
I I I think as of now I don't see how the prosecution over -- -- meets that standard of -- a reasonable doubt I don't see it.
What we're watching --
