No, those are not Trayvon’s screamsExclusive: Jack Cashill says prosecutors are denying Zimmerman a fair trial
“State audio experts ID Trayvon’s voice in screams,” reads the much too hopeful headline in a May 14 Orlando Sentinel article.
Trayvon, of course, is Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old black youth shot and killed by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla.
The screams in question were picked up on a 911 call from one of the neighbors. They last for 42 seconds. The person on the tape yells “help” over and over. No one can deny the fear and desperation in his voice.
Those screams are George Zimmerman’s. The Sanford Police Department knew it within hours of the shooting and, knowing this, refrained from arresting Zimmerman.
