Voice Experts Claim Cries Heard On 911 Call Were Not George Zimmerman's. Now will they arrest him?

Before George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin on February 26, a 911
call recorded the voice of someone screaming. Whether that person was
Martin or Zimmerman -- who police say claimed he was attacked
by Martin before the fatal incident -- has been an open question since
the calls were released by the Sanford, Florida police department.
(WARNING: Above audio is disturbing.)



The Orlando Sentinel consulted two voice experts to try to settle the debate, and both came to the same conclusion: The cries could not have come from George Zimmerman.



One expert, Tom Owen, used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman as the source. From the Sentinel:



"I took all of the screams and put those together, and cut out everything else," Owen says.

The software compared that audio to Zimmerman's voice. It returned a
48 percent match. Owen said to reach a positive match with audio of this
quality, he'd expect higher than 90 percent.



"As a result of that, you can say with reasonable scientific
certainty that it's not Zimmerman," Owen says, stressing that he cannot
confirm the voice as Trayvon's, because he didn't have a sample of the
teen's voice to compare.



Another analyst came to a similar conclusion using different technology.



The voice analysis is the latest piece of information to cast doubt on the narrative, advanced by Zimmerman and his family, that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer was attacked by 17-year-old Travyon Martin. A police video this week showed no blood or bruises on Zimmerman in the aftermath of the incident, while Martin's funeral director said he saw no signs of a struggle on the teen's body.

    I think they will soon. The old teacher lady and the boy walking his dog outside both intimated that it was the one who got shot who was pleading and asking for help.

    I would hope so. But since a young black man's life has once again been shown to be worth nothing, I'm not too sure. It took experts over a month to confirm what anyone with COMMON SENSE already knew. And the fact that even with all of this mounting evidence, he still hasn't been arrested, I'm not sure if it bodes well with this crappy ass "Stand your ground" law!

    How can you say that the computer match of 48% is definitive to the negative?

    It really means that the whole thing remains inconclusive and until the incident is ruled a murder, no arrest should be made.

    That was one expert. The other expert used more sophisticated methods and he came to the same conclusion. Nothing has changed in America when an UMARMED child gets shot in the chest and it takes all this ruckus to even get the white man to investigate it. It's just too bad that black on black crime doesn't garner the same passion. I always tell black folks that when you don't value your own life or the life of your fellow black brother then how can you expect others value your life?

    Yeah and if Trayvon was white. There wouldn't ieven be a hint of a ruckus because Zimmerman's ass would have been arrested, tried and convicted by now. So yes you ARE correct.

    BS, the only reason it is even a concern is because there is political gain to be had by the race pimping left.

    See? your comments just confirmed everything I said above. NO integrity or morals. And you aren't really as smart as you make yourself seem. You always stress your "black friends" when you address me in our talks. Is that supposed to impress me or change my view of you? Sir I am NOT that gullible and silly enough to fall for that. I'm a little more knowledgeable than your alleged black "friends" of who I'm dealing with.

    I don't dislike white folks, I UNDERSTAND white folks. I don't deal in opinions. Opinions are the offspring of deception. Apparently you have no knowledge of the Tuskeegee Experiments. Stressing friends is a waste of time with me as I don't take any stock in those proclamations.

    If a murder has taken place it is for investigators, not the public. Since there is precedent already set, by Zimmerman being released immediately, the burden of proof is much higher. Your whole post is ideological conjecture.

    Actually he was let go because the State Attorney is racist as hell as is the norm for Florida and as such don't value black life. Detective Chris Serino the lead investigator wanted George Zimmerman arrested and charged with manslaughter the night of the shooting, THAT IS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IDEOLOGY. If the roles were reversed Trayvon's ass would have been thrown in jail and charged THAT NIGHT. Whoever disputes this is either intellectually retarded or a liar.

    And if it was another black man that shot him instead of a "white" hispanic(whatever the hell that is) it wouldn't have made the ten o'clock news. Whoever cannot see this is nothing more than a political football to be made use of by the race pimping left is ignorant.

    Yeah he counseled Trayvon Martin right into the cemetary. I guess in his mind is that a good ni**er is a dead ni**er. The word Hispanic is not synonymous with people of color. White Hispanics and non-white Hispanics hate black folks. Your ignorance is palpable. You need to learn words and their definitions.

    World English Dictionary
    Hispanic (hɪˈspænɪk)

    — adj
    1. relating to, characteristic of, or derived from Spain or Spanish-speaking countries

    — n
    2. ( US ) a person of Latin-American or Spanish descent living in the US

    usage This is the word most generally used in the US to refer to people of Latin American or Spanish ancestry

    Last time I checked, Spain is a Caucasian European nation.

    If that was his position, you would think he wouldn't have had black friends, or helped black youth. But once again that doesn't fit your racist narrative so it can't be considered. Your agenda is palpable "REV." Sharpton, continue beating a dead kid for political gain, maybe it will pan out some day, but not today.
