George Zimmerman’s Best Friend Says Head Injuries Could’ve Left Zimmerman ‘Unconscious or Dying’
George Zimmerman’s best friend, Mark Osterman, visited Dr. Phil yesterday to discuss the alleged altercation that occurred between Zimmeran and Trayvon Martin that lead to the seventeen-year-old’s tragic death. Osterman claims he and Zimmerman believe that Zimmerman would’ve died from the head injuries he acquired during an alleged scuffle between he and Martin. “The injuries he had to his head could not be sustained for any period of time without either becoming unconscious or dying,” Osterman told Dr. Phil about Zimmerman. “He said ‘I’m blacking out. I feel I’m going to die,’” Osterman quoted Zimmerman. “He told the police that. He said that in lie detector test, all of which they have. If they connected all this together from George’s perspective he felt ‘I am going to die.’”
Zimmerman made headlines last week after news surfaced that his attorney subpoenaed schools that Martin attended in an effort to illustrate Martin as a dangerous boy. Zimmerman’s attorney requested disciplinary notices, suspensions, and tardiness records among other things.
Martin was suspended by Miami-Dade County schools because traces of marijuana were found in a plastic bag in his book bag. At the time of his death, he was serving the suspension. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense via Florida’s — now criticized — “stand your ground” law. Benjamin Crump, Martin family attorney, has said the link between the youth and marijuana should have no bearing on the probe into his shooting death. Zimmerman’s parents are Caucasian and Hispanic and Trayvon Martin’s parents are African American. Many believe Zimmerman is racist and deliberately sought to kill an African American male. The shooting prompted nationwide protests after Zimmerman was not arrested for weeks after the shooting.
In July, Zimmerman claimed that Martin’s death was part of God’s plan. In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, George Zimmerman said he felt the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was killed “was all God’s plan.” ”We must worship a different God,” Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, said in response to Zimmerman’s claim. “There is no way that my God wanted George Zimmerman to murder my teenage son.” Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, referred to the notion as “ridiculous.” In addition to crediting God for the evening of February 26 when he ignored the suggestion of the 911 operator to not confront Martin, Zimmerman also said he’d like to talk to his victim’s parents about that tragic evening. ”Absolutely not,” Fulton said when asked if she’d be willing to meet with Zimmerman.
