One month ago, I presented a video walk-through of The Retreat at Twin Lakes from George Zimmerman's perspective -- from the moment he stepped out of his vehicle to the time he says he was punched in the face by Trayvon Martin.

This is part two of that video. It explores the fateful night of February 26 from Trayvon's point of view. How accurate is it? I don't know, but it should help you to better understand the area and the path the young man may have taken.

I received several e-mails from people; each with their unique requests for footage. I wish I could have accommodated you all, but I couldn't. What I can tell you is that, as of today, two fences are erected along the northwest side of the complex, running south from Oregon Avenue and parallel to the western edge that keep people from entering the way Trayvon allegedly did as described by Zimmerman. There is a locked pedestrian entry alongside the main gate, so there is no reason to access the Retreat from anywhere else, other than the southeast gate. Also, clubhouse parking is restricted to tenants that are using the facility at the time, including the community pool. There is a street sign at the intersection of Retreat View Circle and Twin Trees Lane upon entering from the north, off Oregon Avenue. It is located atop the stop sign on the same corner as the clubhouse. Look for it in the video. It's interesting to note that Zimmerman could not remember the name of the street, Twin Trees, nor did he notice those signs.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please add them in comments and I will do my best to respond. I hope you enjoy the music...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Zimmerman will walk. (0+ / 0-)

    That's my prediction. There is no evidence to contradict his testimony. I don't think this case will even make it to trial. If Trayvon threw the first punch, and it appears he did, then everything leading to that moment is irrelevant. Smashing a beaten man's head into the pavement is cause for deadly force.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    •  And Romney was going (0+ / 0-)

      to win in a landslide. It is obvious where you are getting your information. Anybody who has taken a serious look at the data knows, that almost everything Zimmerman said does not match the evidence.
      Kind of disgusting that we have people from the white hoody brigade hanging out here.

  •  Also... (0+ / 0-)

    Which DeeDee is the star witness? The 16-year-old or the 18-year-old?

    When your key witness (who didn't see anything) is suspect, a conviction aint gonna happen.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
