George Zimmerman Tells Attorneys He Said “F*cking Punks”, Not “Coons” Before He Killed Martin [Video]

George Zimmerman says he whispered, “f*cking punks”, not a racial slur, in the moments before he fatally shot Trayvon Martin, according to CNN.

Zimmerman attorneys Hal Ulrig and Craig Sonner told CNN their client told them that he said, “F—ing punks.” This, if believed, would give credence to Zimmerman’s presumed defense that race did not play a role in Trayvon Martin’s murder.

Audio expert Tom Owen also weighed in on the audio and agreed that the word heard on the 911 tape was  ”punks,” not the racial slur some people said they heard. Owen says the word became clearer once he removed cell phone interference from the vocals.

Owen provided CNN a copy of the new tape but members of the editorial staff could not reach a consensus on what word was used by Zimmerman.

    He can’t get away with this one, there’s no way possible that these two expletives could be confused with one another. He said “coon” and technology will soon help his memory.

    They want you to hear punks but when I heard it….I heard a racial slur…. I know the difference between coons and punks! and he said…. Fucking Coons! His lawyers need to stop the crap and the media needs to stop supporting that nonsense! He said what he said and because of the outcome that it was racial profiling in my eyes…..they are trying to cover, cover and cover his ass! Justice needs to be served – Zimmerman needs to be arrested!
