  •  I like Vyan's theory (11+ / 0-)

    but think it can be even simpler.

    George stalks.
    When Trayvon dares to turn and ask, "What you following me for? GZ begins his idea of a citizen's arrest.

    He closes the distance and grabs him - he intends to hold this guy in place until the police arrive.

    But when clumsy Georgie grabs hiis hoodie Trayvon pushes back hard, so hard that Georgie slipis and falls bumping his head on something and pulling Trayvon down too. In my theory that's the only reason 1 witness saw Trayvon on top.

    Trayvon tries to get loose and manages to get on his feet, perhaps crouching, and only as he's backing away, still bent over or crouched can GZ sit up enough to reach under his jacket and shirt to get his gun.

    There may be a moment when Trayvon sees the gun, but it's only the instant before he is shot.

    I believe it was Travvon's voice on the tape. Punk asshole thugs don't cry for help after throwing the first punch, and preventing the other guy from landing any blows.
