That there would be this kind of reaction between that's only part of the story Georgian government suffered a broken nose and what he has an -- -- the bank has had. He was attacked by -- -- on that evening. So you are going to argue. That this was a case of self defense. The evidence was -- as a case of self defense are you going to use the stand your ground defense I believe I believe that's going to be applicable in this case. The stand your ground defense the law in Florida and several other states that says that someone who feels threatened. Has no duty to retreat you say this is going to be a case of self defense. But when we heard that call. To the police and the dispatcher saying are you following him. Worried about what can -- be out that we don't it.

She cried for days after that he says the headlines have also taken tool on Zimmerman and his wife he's moves. They've disconnected their phone numbers. They're in hiding here fearful there have been people who have accused George of profiling well -- -- I would think that is the watch commander. You are keeping an eye out for people you don't recognizing your neighborhood but you look at his record of -- called 91149. Times in the last year. -- you've got to wonder. How to train was that I been. But I don't know how many calls he made where they weren't false alarms we can all hear. That moment of screaming on the 911 -- Would you hear that I hear George. I do here toward his trip on Martin's family has -- -- they -- there they're teenager I'm sure they do. And after talking with George -- he says he is convinced it came down to that final moment. At that point. -- -- -- -- -- -- As a family friend do you wish that George had listened to the dispatcher. Who -- you don't need follow him of course.
