How did he get from where he was standing RIGHT THEN to in front of the boy who was in the opposite direction of where the pedophile was to meet the police officers?


Pedophile? Let me try that.
Wasn't in the opposite direction. Zimmerman walked east to the back entrance ,finished his conversation with the dispatcher and was walking west, back to his truck when accosted by the drug selling, Lean using,Mixed martial arts enthusiast, drug addict and school truant, Trayvon Martin whose temporary home was seventy yards south of the confrontation.

How many times had George been through this exact thing before at just moments past dark? His numerous calls to LE are available on line for all to see, didn't you read them?
You haven't a clue what George did or didn't do or how it fits into the dispatch center time lines.
And what's up with the N.E. row houses you continue to mention? Those are town homes and N.E. doesn't explain squat. Nothing you post makes any sense because you continue to lie.
You won't like how this case ends.
In an earlier 911 phone call George Zimmerman reported a suspicious black man walking around a friend's house and told the operator, "I don't want to approach him."

Retreat at Twin Lakes
police had been called to the 260-unit complex 402 times from Jan. 1, 2011 to Feb. 26, 2012.

Sanford has become a hub for opioid distribution and diversion in Florida, a problem that kills approximately 4,000 Floridians a year. According to the US Justice Department, last year pharmacies in Sanford, Florida ordered enough painkillers to supply a population eight times its size. Sanford has a population of 53,000 but the supply ordered would support 400,000. According to the Drug Enforcement Agency, in 2010 a single CVS pharmacy in Sanford ordered 1.8 million Oxycodone pills, an average of 137,994 pills a month. Other pharmacy customers in Florida averaged 5,364 oxycodone pills a month. DEA investigators serving a warrant to a CVS pharmacy in Sanford on Oct. 18 2011 noted that “approximately every third car that came through the drive-thru lane had prescriptions for oxycodone or hydrocodone.” According to the DEA, a pharmacist at that location stated to investigators that “her customers often requested certain brands of oxycodone using street slang,” an indicator that the drugs were being diverted and not used for legitimate pain management

My bad. I thought most everybody knew how to read a map, or at the very least, know what north, south, east and west was.

Interesting that he also first noticed Trayvon standing near his friend Frank Taaffe's house also don't you think.

I would need to see a source for the 402 calls to "The Retreat at Twin Lakes."

Sanford covers a lot of territory, there are areas of high crime and area of little crime, The Retreat is located in the second lowest crime sector in the city.

Obviously you are a liar and fabricator like xxx dumbass.

What sort of vehicle was George driving as he tracked Martins movements all the way from Frank's home to the crossover on the opposite side of The Retreat?

So you can't answer the question? Is that what you're saying?

During the recreation video George pointed to the spot where he claims to have spotted Trayvon near the T. Did you bother to watch the entire recreation video?

How would George know where the teen was prior to seeing him on the sidewalk just steps South of the T? How would you know?

Opposite direction.

Still looking for the explanation of that three minutes you said was ten seconds.

Of course, the pedophile has told four stories, I am sure he will have a fifth story by the time the court convenes though of course he won't be able to tell it because all of America knows he has already lied to the court.

I am sure O'Mara has already done some market testing on the final version.

Most of them from the pedophile pretending to be the cop on the beat.

I already answered the question. But you can't figure out where the north-east row houses are. Apparently, you don't know how to locate north-east on a map. So what's the point in trying to explain it to you? Of course, the internet is loaded with maps pointing to the exact location where the altercation took place (behind the set of houses on the north-east corner) but you must have not looked for them.

But should you decide to, try to find the map that shows where Zim and Martin broke off, and where Martin was during the time Zimmerman finished his phone call with 911. Once you've done that, come back and explain to us all why Martin didn't go to the house he was staying at, and remained all that time behind those houses in the dark.

Listen to the 911 tape. Especially when Zimmerman told 911 he lost sight of Martin. The shooting happened several minutes later. The only possible way for Zimmerman to shoot Martin is if Martin didn't even try to go home. Martin stayed right where they parted company for several minutes.
No law says Trayvon had to go home.

Of course he did. But since there is absolutely no evidence that Zimmerman attacked Matin, Martin had nothing to defend himself against. Remember: according to evidence via Zimmerman's injuries and Martin's lack of, Martin was obviously the attacker--not Zimmerman. That being said, Zimmerman had the right to defend himself from Martin's attack as well.

That's exactly what I'm saying. If you go to wiki, it's explained there that the complex was very diverse. In fact, whites were a minority there. So there were plenty of black and Hispanic residents there. When Zimmerman was first asked to describe Martin, he stated that Martin could be Hispanic (which Zimmerman is also) or black. He didn't know until several seconds later when he decided that Martin was indeed a young black male.
So what's your point?
Yeah

There's that opinion again.

The only person we know who was chasing anyone is Zimmerman chasing Martin.

Trayvon Martin was nothing but the typical black thug punk that roams around looking for a crime of opportunity. When approached they will attack or if caught they will scream brutality and unfairness.

This ferral black thug got exactly what he deserved. He made the choice to attack plain and simple. He didn't live there he had no reason to be there. As much as everyone may want to criticize Zimmerman he was well within his right to follow this suspicious thug and call the police like he did. Trayvon could have just stopped, sat down at the curb and awaited the police and explain everything to them, instead he felt "derespected" and decided to attack Zimmerman.

If Trayvon had half a brain and was able to control his inner animal we would have never heard of him.
