More Twists in the Trayvon Martin Case, Zimmerman Accuses Martin of Attacking Him

Trayvon Martin

The story of Trayvon Martin's death at the hands of George Zimmerman keeps taking more bizarre twists and turns all in the name of justifying his actions.
Regardless of Zimmerman's claims of self-defense it can't be disputed that he initiated the tragic string of events that lead to the death of Trayvon Martin.
The simple fact that he was following this young man in his car.  The recording of his own call to 911 states that when asked if he was following Trayvon, he said "yes" and was told not to follow him.  Then he exited his vehicle and confronted the boy.  The 911 call from neighbors in the area has the sounds of Trayvon screaming for help, followed by a gunshot and then silence.
George Zimmerman is now trying to turn the incident around and claim that Trayvon Martin attacked him, knocked him to the  ground and began pounding his head on the concrete sidewalk.  Although no evidence is available to corroborate his claim, had Trayvon actually done this it would likely have been out of fear and his instinct to survive in a situation which he perceived to be life threatening.
This police video of Zimmerman shows no signs of any injuries whatsoever.
