Woman on phone with Trayvon Martin says he ran away

ABC News Correspondent Matt Gutman spoke with the woman who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin before he died. Her account of that night differs greatly from what George Zimmerman told police.

    Anderson, here is the big picture in the Trayvon Martin's case. the shooter's clothes was not bloodied even though he claimed that Trayvon was on top of him when he got shot. somebody just got shot; he was on top of you, there is gonna be blood all over your person. that is how i see it.

    It does not appear that any of the police are wearing gloves – isn't this powerful support of the concept that there was in fact no external bleeding suffered by Zimmerman?

    I worked in the ER for many years and the blood on his clothes, if there is blood, would most likely be Trayvon's. I see no head injury when he leans out of the police car and in an incidence like this, he would have required medical care for possible head injury, imo.

    If George Zimmerman had blood on him at all wouldn't the police officers be wearing gloves per universal precautions procedures that are standard practice these days? I refuse to believe that a police officer would touch another person's blood with his bare hands (even bloody clothing) and then wipe his hand on his pants. That simple observation is one of the most persuasive that George Zimmerman was not bleeding.

    If Zimmerman were emitting body fluids, e.g. bleeding, would not police and health workers be wearing protective gloves or other measures?

    Regaurding the Video of the guy who shot Tryvone and his acusations that he was attacked you can clearly see that if the guy had any injuuries, or was bloody the officers would be wearing gloves to protect themselves. when the officer touches the backside of the guy and then wipes his hand off on his own pants, the police officer if it was blood would have washed his hands..If this guy was bleeding the Cops would have been wearing gloves,..Period.

    Anderson, please ask 3 questions: 1) Is it normal for police to allow a handcuffed person to walk into a police station without being in direct control of an officer? On the video, Zimmerman enters like he is one of the cops!
    2) Is it true that Zimmerman's father is a local judge? Could that have influenced how this was handled?
    3) Is it true that Zimmerman had reported people 43 times to police as a neighborhood watch person?
