A day after killing Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman reportedly passed a police lie detector test when asked if he confronted the teen and if he feared for his life “when you shot the guy,” according to documents released today by Florida prosecutors.
Zimmerman “was classified as No Deception Indicated (NDI)” according to the report.
Problem is, even if George Zimmerman is telling the truth, he was still the aggressor of this altercation. By Zimmerman’s own account, he followed Trayvon Martin, against the advice of the 911 dispatcher, and profiled him as one of “these guys” who had committed break-ins in the past.
According to Zimmerman, Trayvon walked past him once and disappeared, then circled his car and disappeared. Even if Zimmerman’s story is 100% truthful, that still left him with two opportunities to extricate himself from the situation, and he chose not to. So it was still a series of bad choices by Zimmerman that led to Trayvon Martin’s death. There’s no getting around that.
