FBI Finds No Evidence to Suggest Zimmerman Is Racist

FBI interviews of dozens of friends, coworkers and neighbors of George Zimmerman found no evidence that the accused murderer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was a racist, according to new documents released on Thursday.
The reports from the FBI were among a new collection of evidence, including crime scene photos, bank surveillance videos and other documents, that were released by Florida's state attorney's office in the racially charged case.

Zimmerman, a 28-year-old Hispanic white man, is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Martin, a 17-year-old black teen.

Zimmerman claims he killed Martin in self defense after the unarmed Martin attacked him and slammed his head into the sidewalk during a confrontation in a gated community in the central Florida city of Sanford.

The documents do not provide any blockbuster evidence but include additional details about the shooting.

A former law enforcement officer who said he taught Zimmerman how to shoot told investigators that Zimmerman told him he made eye contact and yelled for help when two neighbors came outside at different times during the scuffle, according to the evidence.

The claim that Zimmerman made eye contact with neighbors shortly before shooting Martin is at odds with statements released so far by prosecutors.

Many witnesses told investigators that it was too dark to identify the two people wrestling on the ground or to determine who was on top or on bottom or who was yelling for help.

The witness, who was interviewed by agents of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI, said he was called to the scene the night of Martin's killing by Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, and waited with her at the police department while Zimmerman was questioned.

The witness also accompanied Zimmerman when he recreated the shooting for police and a subsequent police interrogation.

    Zimmerman has friends who are Black. Unless he was using those people to hide his racism, WAY before he ever shot the punk Trayvon, the "Racist Card" theory is out the door.
