Until now, every scenario discussed by the media assumes Zimmerman ignored a 911 dispatcher’s advice not to follow Trayvon. I’d even assumed as much myself. But I ran across a comment on another blog suggesting Zimmerman didn’t ignore the dispatcher’s advice after all. Here’s the streetview.
“In reference to Zimmerman leaving the truck, listen to his 911 tape again, beginning at 2:00 minutes. Zimmerman says, “He’s running.” He then opens his door, and there is the ding dong ding dong sound the truck makes when a driver’s door is opened with the key still in. The sound stops, you hear the door close, and rushing outside noises. The dispatcher asks, “Are you following him?” and he says, “Yes.” The dispatcher says only, “Ok, we don’t need you to do that” and he says, “Ok.” Then it is quieter, because Zimmerman stops moving, but he never gets back in the truck. There is no sound of a door opening again or closing.
According to Zimmerman, at the end of the phone call, he walks to read the street sign he was asked about, and that is how he meets Trayvon.”
