Sanford Police Statement on Trayvon Shooting Implies Father is Misleading Press
There is one small item that I haven’t seen mentioned – in the official statement put out by the Sanford police, they seem to imply that either Trayvon’s father misunderstood their statement to him, or he lied about it:
Why was George Zimmerman labeled as “squeaky clean” when in fact he has a prior
In one of the initial meetings with the father of the victim the investigator related to him the account that Mr. Zimmerman provided of the incident. At that time the investigator said that Mr. Zimmerman portrayed himself to be “squeaky clean”. We are aware of the background information regarding both individuals involved in this event. We believe Mr. Martin may have misconstrued this information.
Three ways this can be read:
- Police were just telling Trayvon’s father what Zimmerman said, not telling him what they knew to be the case.
- Police were just telling Trayvon’s father what Zimmerman said, not knowing what his history was.
- Police were purposely misleading Trayvon’s father and covering it up.
Before we condemn anyone, including the police chief, let’s wait till the facts come out.
