Discussion: Unbelievable!! George Zimmerman Is Suing NBC Over Trayvon Martin 911 Tapes

Talk about someone with a boatload of gall and audacity. Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman has plans to sue NBC for editing 911 tapes, The New York Post is reporting.

George Zimmerman Mug Shot mugshot Discussion: Unbelievable!! George Zimmerman Is Suing NBC Over Trayvon Martin 911 Tapes

NBC launched an internal probe after producers misleadingly edited the 911 call placed by Zimmerman just before he shot the unarmed Florida teenager. The edit made it appear that Zimmerman had immediately told police that Martin was black, when the full tape reveals the neighborhood watch captain only did so when responding to a question posed by a dispatcher.

Combined sections from two different parts of the tape gave the false impression that Zimmerman had said: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.”

If I’m not mistaken, networks often edit the 911 tapes. And while George Zimmerman may not have offered up the “black male” reference out of the blue, it still doesn’t change the end result of the tragic evening.  With the trial starting soon, I’m sure there will be more hot mess stories coming from the Zimmerman camp. What do you think?  Is this a good move or bad?

  1. it was very sad that this happened, the start of that night. sadly it is the start of many sad nights where someones life gets taken. i think it was very unfair this case was made out to be a race thing. when no matter what color either one of them are… there is a mama crying in pain who no matter what the out come of this case is she will never be okay. so many lifes have changed and one has ended. i wish that violence would be looked at more by all for EVERY REASON!
