Detective Says Zimmerman Never Changed His Story
How they could find him guilty is becoming unimaginable. But we thought the same about numerous guilty people that have been found innocent.
Check it out:
The lead police detective who investigated the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin in central Florida last year returned to the witness stand Tuesday in the murder trial of George Zimmerman, after testifying Monday that he believed Zimmerman’s story after his attempt to bluff the suspect failed.
Sanford Police Det. Christopher Serino, who initially wanted to charge Zimmerman with manslaughter but was overruled, said under cross examination by Zimmerman defense attorney Mark O’Mara that Zimmerman’s story remained consistent and that the volunteer neighborhood watchman was cooperative throughout the investigation. He said he considered Zimmerman’s injuries to be minor, but found nothing to prompt him to doubt the 29-year-old’s story, that we shot Martin in self-defense as he was being beaten.
On cross examination, Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda emphasized profane language Zimmerman used on a 911 call as he observed Martin walking through the gated community, and asked Serino if Zimmerman’s use of “a–holes” and “f—ing punks” indicated Zimmerman might have been profiling and following Martin.
