Disgusting!… ABC Outs 13 Year-Old Witness to Trayvon Martin Killing

ABC Outs Child Witness—
ABC News outed the 13 year-old minor who witnessed the Trayvon Martin killing. The minor said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before the shooting.

WRKO reported on the second witness who confirmed that Zimmerman was attacked.

ABC News reported:

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.

Zimmerman had claimed he had called police about Martin, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him.

The new information is the most complete version yet of what Zimmerman claims happened on the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the teenager.

In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman’s description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin.

The initial police report noted that Zimmerman was bleeding from the back of the head and nose, and after medical attention it was decided that he was in good enough condition to travel in a police cruiser to the Sanford, Fla., police station for questioning. He was not arrested.

    OMG! How sickening.

    Notice that ABC kept Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend’s name annymous?

    How sickening.

    Can the family of the boy sue ABC news?

  • This young man’s parents need to hire a lawyer and sue the crap out abc for putting their young son’s life in danger……….The news media working with liberals want stop until someone ends up dead……

  • Adirondack Patriot

    This whole activist-driven fiasco has gotten out of hand. Someone is going to get killed because of the reckless reporting and outrageous rhetoric. The media, the President and Spike Lee all seem intent on aggravating this situation.

    Farrakhan, Sharpton, Jackson, the New Black Panther Party all want to see division and rioting and hatred. It is their stock in trade. The media is right there with them.

    This is like Nazi Germany where the media wants us to hate someone, wants us to lynch someone, and if we disagree, we are “rascists.”

    This has gone beyond outrageous.

  • Paul in N. AL

    I thought we knew about the kid’s name a couple of days ago?

  • noway

    right on ponderon! abc news is a disgace. i don’t watch them.

  • Latin2

    That witness is an African-American boy too. I wonder if they will pressure him to change his story. He said on the video that he saw Zimmerman on the bottom. Zimmerman was the one wearing the red t-shirt.

  • mg4us

    ABC. . . “Anything But Correctness” or is it “All Bout Change” or ” A Big Charade”

    They should be ashamed to drag out a minor like that. . . but then again, out of the mouth of Babes come startling predictions and truth! Clearly this “child” has not yet been fully indoctrinated by the public school system. . . and popular leftist culture.

    Welcome to an Obama World where Obamination is the norm. . . this just in


    One day, I hope Brietbart news continues in their Founder’s footsteps and start investigating the news bureaus and the personal lives and connections of their so-called reporters & their families. . .wonder what interesting things we will learn and uncover. . .

  • cal rifkin

    The whole news biz needs gutted like a fish…journolibs from the Marxist schools where they were “educated” must be purged. Working as commie useful idiots, their credentials are suspect. List every one of the slanted leftist so-called reporters and rate them for their bias. Get the truth out!!!

  • Chris in N.Va.

    Abysmal BS-casting Company strikes again.

    I’m sure their newscasters (and news-writers) would not mind their own minor children’s names and addresses publicized.

    Only in the interest of “fairness” of course.

  • an observer

    #7, right on.

    someone should publish the home address of George Stephanopolis and where his kids go to school. Not to make threats, but in the PUBLIC INTEREST, and in the spirit of TRANSPARENCY.

    Sauce for the goose….

    #3 “This is like Nazi Germany where the media wants us to hate someone, wants us to lynch someone, and if we disagree, we are “rascists.”

    Trayvon is the muslim in Tunisia who burned himself and sparked the arab Spring revolt. This is the President of the United States and his team of race bigoted media matters trained team of witch hunting blood libel inquisitors agitating to bring down the system. Interesting that it is all timed to the Suprme Court hearing of Obamacare….and it will continue on til November.

  • sandy

    Robert Zimmerman, George’s father said it best. There is so much hatred out there coming from the President etc. If Obama thought this death was a diversion from The Supreme Court debacle he was Wrong. This will only get worse and if someone dies because of this lawlessness and hatred it will leave a sickening feeling in all our hearts. Do we want 4 more years of This?

  • mg4us

    A sub-standard video recording and ABC goes on the offensive. . . and now this young boy!!
    Is there anything ABC won’t do to distort the news?

    In the vid one cannot make out color differential let alone stains and cuts or lacerations from this, especially if, as reported, Zimmerman was given first aid at the scene.

    Easiest thing is for police and others to look for themselves. .just have Zimmerman show you his head and clothes. . .and what was that officer staring at on Zimmerman’s head in the video . .seems he was staring at something that caught his attention.

    And if ABC has this video, what about the one of Trayvon at the Convenience store? You know, the place he bought his Skittles and Iced Tea. . .

    And while ABC is at it, how about the black youth mob in the Miami Walgreens ransacking the place supposedly in loving memory of Trayvon?

    Also, How did Trayvon get back in the gated community? Did he walk through the gate or hop the fence? Does Gate have a video (most have surveillance cameras to record comings and goings), if so, let’s see Trayvon walking through it? Surely it must show that, especially being a non-resident.

    But the BIGGEST tragedy of ALL and HOW this could have easily been avoided was not for Zimmerman to stop Following. .this was not the triggering (no pun intended) event.

    No. . .the real fault is that Trayvon, like so many other minorities without proper parenting & supervision were never taught to respect authority. . such as teachers, cops, end even community watchers. If so, Trayvon could have come up to Zimmerman and asked what was the matter. Why are you following me. I am just coming back from the store and heading home to be with my dad and his girlfriend who lives here.

    The key word they are never taught. . besides R_E_S_P_E_C_T is Cooperation. . . .

    How would this all have unfolded if little Trayvon Cooperated with Zimmerman. . .and even when the police from Zimmerman’s earlier 911 showed up? I doubt we would have had a gun firing? Trayvon might have even gotten a free ride back to the house his dad was in courtesy of the Sanford Police.

    Instead, Trayvon sought to attach Zimmerman. . assault and battery, which itself IS A CRIME!!!

    And from accounts of witnesses and Zimmerman himself, Travvon had the advantage (first move, bigger, stronger) and Zimmerman cried for help!

    And Zimmerman was following President’s Obama’s orders. .they bring a knife (or a fist or a screwdriver!!) – – you bring a gun!. . . and Zimmerman did. . on explicit orders from the President of the United States! By the way the 911 never told him not to follow. .only that you do not need to follow. . more of a suggestion

    Last point. Given the blatant distortion and Bias the news outlets have done from using a much younger image of Trayvon vs a mugshot from Zimmerman. . . to shoddy hearsay investigating on their part. . .to now this outing of this boy while keeping so called girl friend anonymous.

    Zimmerman should seek a defamation of character suit against theses phony news outlets Spike Lee and others. . . even one against Obama himself. . . and so should this boy.

    Sue ABC. . . and their advertisers too!

    The way to deal with these Leftist thugs and elitists is via their pocketbook!

  • TXPatriot

    I’m not sure why everyone doesn’t get that this is what President Divider WANTS. He wants riots and mayhem. He wants us at each others’ throats so he can declare marshal order and take full control. He and his DOJ are stoking this blaze with everything they have. They don’t want to douse it. After all you never let a good crisis go to waste.

    I do find it more than interesting how ABC, et al keeps putting the pic of 12-year-old innocent Trayvon next to 28-year-old angry looking Zimmerman. Why don’t they use the angry-looking 17-year-old pics of Trayvon? There are plenty of them out there. The bias is so obvious it’s flabbergasting.

  • Voice of Reason

    This Martin case should provide more evidence to those of the fringe about leftist media bias and the Democrat Socialist Industrial Media complex. Most already know, but, some need more. We had Journolist, now we have Media-List. NY Times, WaPo, LA Times, SF Chronicle, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Yahoo, Media Matters, MoveOn,org lead the way. I check them out all the time and is striking. Framing stories, misleading information, lack of critical thinking and objectiveness, trial by media, attacking competition, covering for Obama. Pravda is now more honest.

  • HadEnough

    These are the same clowns that will protect a Taliban source but yet out a 13 year old for public gain……….

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    This is not a problem for the Trayvon zombies.

    Now that the kid has been identified, he’ll probably change his story once he gets “pressure”.

  • olm

    As is this entire story. The media/libs do not give a crap about the truth. The only immportant thing to them is perpetuating the “race war” that doesn’t exist.
    Boycott ABC……….oh wait, there is no point.

  • Roger Isom

    The NEXT THING I wanna hear is the NAME OF THE REPORTER and that PERSONS ADDRESS

  • USMC Thomas

    Stop Snitchin’ intimidation by the white guilt libturd MSM.
    Don’t think this kid will now appear in any court as a witness.

    TWO NAMES are tied to this STORY Matt GUTMAN and Seni Tienabesco…..

    Justice seeking famous 99%er Spike Lee plans to tweet 13 year old witnesses address and tell his followers to harass the kid. Lee is now claiming registered Democrat WHITEY Zimmerman was a regular listener to Rush Limbaugh.

  • Patty

    I never realized how many vigilantes, pretend detectives and so many different accounts as to what happen when these people WEREN’T THERE.

    OMG, wait for the evidence and because of the media is fueling the fire and even the Obama weighed in when he had no evidence and saw a picture of a cute little black kid.

    The whole thing is so infected and so nationalized I can only hope that Zimmerman gets a just trial and a jury that hasn’t heard about this. Do you think that will happen?

    People who have nothing to do with this are getting threats thanks to Spike Lee.

    And when you need a president to call for a halt to this, silence.

  • Buffalobob

    The MSM is responsible for the hatred being generated over this tragedy. The beloved Nancy Grace trying to appear neutral but looping what she claims is a racial slur uttered in the background of a phone call over and over again. While she is playing it her face is contorted into a gargoyle image of hate. Hell she even solicited the forensic expertise of the funeral director to testify on her show that there were no cuts or bruises on Martins hands, implying that that proves he did not strike Zimmerman.

  • Voice of Reason

    I won’t be surprised if ABC offers to host a telethon to help raise money for Martin’s defense. Give it a title like “Raising money for justice.” Will Newsweek run a front page cover story titled “We Are All Tayvon Now?”

  • Fred

    Yeah well outing a 13 yr old is o.k. when your married to someone working in the white house and you work for ABC, and was former Clinton aide…

  • Holder’s AK-47s kill Mexicans

    If Spike Lee finds out who this kid is, the kid’s life will be in danger.

    According to Nancy (Dis)Grace, the Duke University Rapists were guilty as well, and we all remember how well that turned out.

  • Roger Isom

    DOES the words FELONY FIRST DEGREE MURDER RULE mean anything to you LIBERAL REPORTERS?????

  • owl

    For years, I have been more interested in the media bias than the story because this is the power source of almost all that I observed happening to us. It is the gasoline that drives the vehicle.

    ABC has been top of my list for a very long time. They served it up with GMA and Dianne. They are actually not as bad at this point as in the past. Jake Tapper is about the only ray of light that ever gets through and then he seems fairly balanced with it.

    Mr Bill O’Reilly has almost moved to my top list. Why? Because the best of the bias is so smooth that even a long time watcher will miss it. We spot a Sheppard Smith standing on the bridge. Easy, peasy.

    Known liberals are not my problem. Give me a Gerardo or a Juan Williams anyday. They are known liberals that always spout the liberal line. Always. No problem. That is not the power source. CBS? Nope, that’s a known factor. ABC has always been around the top.

    During the Bush years, most of the ‘campaigns’ started at NYT and then WaPo and then
    MSNBC and then NBC, etc. Patterns.

    If this president follows his pattern, we will soon be getting a another sermon. He followed his overseas pattern of leaving a huge fiasco at home so he would not be held responsible. Thought sure he would give it this morning.

  • DANEgerus

    Sue ABC until 13-year-old Austin Brown owns Disney.

  • Just read that Roseanne Barr has just join twitter vigilantle crew and posted the address of George Zimmerman’s parents address to her followers……..I SEE ALOT OF LAWSUITS AHEAD ………….liberals are so stupid ,can’t keep their big-mouth shut…………

    More misinformation article states
    “ABC News outed the 13 year-old minor who witnessed the Trayvon Martin killing. The minor said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before the shooting.”

    “In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman’s description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin. ”

    No mention of Martin Austin brown did not see Martin on top, which means when John yelled he was calling the cops Martin obviously disengaged prior to the shot being fired.

    The lack of mention of Martin at all in Austin’s testimony is the most damning account yet to self defesne.

  • Will we ever know the truth?

    #14, I agree with you. Riots and mayhem are what he wants and the media sure has taken the bait.
    Will we ever REALLY know what happened? For goodness sakes , the media is showing an outdated picture of Travon! Is he 12 or 17? My heart is breaking for his parents, no parent should ever have to bury a child. A person has lost their life, this is what has happened. A parent had to bury their child.
    America is turning into a sad, moraless country. All of this media coverage picking apart every little crumb is discusting. Stop with the madness!! And now a 13 year old boy has been named, his family will probably have to go into hiding. What a mess, there are WAY to many people involved. It’s sickening!

    Is there any way to get a sworn affidavit from the kid right now…I would think intimidation and fearing for ones life is reason enough.. This takes low to a whole new level !!!

  • andre

    Big lesson on how to lose the Hispanic vote.


    It’s imperative that you read the blog’s and the New’s Correctly !!! This is not a black or white thing this is a Right and Wrong thing!!! All we want is Zimmerman Arrested PPl state there are more black on black crime’s! That could be true ..But we can never act on Black on Black crimes simply cause the killer is alway’s Arrested .Zimmerman has a history of Violence beating up his ex Fiancee and Brutality on A officer of the law .. I would not care if Zimmerman was white,Black or whatever the color .I would feel the same way ..The videos showed this idiot not bleeding it does not add up to what he is saying ..The funeral home director said the Trayvon had no bruising on his knuckles or hand’s So Trayvon was not in a Fight .Iam not only pissed at Mr zimmerman but also at the Police Department that had that child in a morgue for 3 entire day’s and it was not told Till the Father reported him missing Who does this? If they were not covering up as for the child that is a minor and was jeopardized in this manner i totally agree that action should be taken ..All we want is justice Zimmerman pulled the trigger But that corupt police department is his murderer being the son of a ex judge he thought he could get away with anything as he quoted this will blow over not this time idiot your going to jail !!! GOOD DAY


    I find it absolutely sickening that you people are trying to find justification for this trigger happy S.O.B to kill a person, regardless of age or race, without provocation! If you believe that, you are, in fact, some of the most gullible idiots on the face of the Earth. Nevermind that the eyewitnesses were ignored until the petition to arrest Zimmerman spread across the country. Nevermind that the first set of eyewitnesses saw Zimmerman straddling the dead body of Trayvon Martin, who, by the way, was found face down with a hole in his chest. How about Zimmerman claiming to have been attacked when he got out of his car to look at a steet sign, but the body is found quite a distance away from the car. And, considering that there are only 4 streets in a neighborhood that you have been watching long enough to prompt you to make 46 calls to the police, you can’t remember the name of one of them? Going to the grocery store, huh? In all of my years of grocery shopping, I have NEVER thought to grab 9mm!

  • wowrightwingersLOL





    IT’S ON THE 911 TAPE



    You wanna talk about photos? The picture of George Zimmerman that has been put online looks NOTHING like the balding, physically fit guy the police brought into the station on the night of Feb. 26th. Witness accounts were altered, witnesses were lead, and the cries on the 911 call ARE definitely those of Trayvon Martin! How stupid will you feel when THAT is verified by the FBI or whomever is on this freaking case? Several callers describe the cries of a young person or child. I heard them and even I can tell that is NOT an adult male. They are cries of fear and desperation. How scared could Zimmerman be with a 9mm in his possesion? It is clear to me that the bastard shot the kid while the KID was on his back! By the way, the 13 year old did NOT see the color of the skin or the shirt the guy on the ground was wearing…and he only saw a guy on the ground, he never said anything about anyone being on top. He DID, hear a gunshot a few seconds later. Oh yeah, listening to the 911 tape, there were TWO SHOTS fired


    Wowrightwingers, I agree! Forget what they read, listen to the tapes. The kid is trying to get away from this strange guy who is following him and they say he lacks respect for authority? Are you freaking kidding me? So, in the name of respect, when a dirty old guy in a dirty old pickup is following one of your daughters from school and offering her candy, even though she’s afraid, tell her to approach the man and ask him, “Mr. Dirty old man who may be a pediphile, why are you following me?” Ridiculous, huh? But Trayvon Martin was being disrespectful by trying to elude a stalker! Or is it the minorities with no respect for authority who are supposed to be that stupid? GTF outta here! What made this guy an authority? Him being White? Oh, sorry, half White. You people really need to do some soul searching. It’s mentalities such as yours that got us here in the first place. You are all repulsive! BLACK OR WHITE, IT WAS WRONG!! Who cares about teenage antics? WHAT WAS TRAYVON DOING ON THE NIGHT OF FEB 26. 2012?

  • Koozebane


    Evil is dragging a 13 year old child out into the center of a violent firestorm because his account of the events in question are inconvenient to the narrative.

    We are not evil. We believe in innocent until proven guilty, the blatant dishonesty of the Corporate Media, trial in an actual court of law and the illegality of dead or alive blood warrants while an investigation is ongoing.

    So take your brilliant use of caps lock and shove it, you brainless lynch mob whore.

  • CommonSense-

    The commentary within these posts – on politics, society, wanting “four more years of this, liberal media, and, coming soon to a town near you – mayhem – has lost sight of the truth of the matter – Basic common sense and basic respect for fellow human beings have given way to fear.

    As a very wise man once wrote “there are many here among us who think that life is but a joke” and who find joy in stoking the flames of hate. This reminds me of the O’J trial and Rodney King fiasco where videos were not to be believed – and common sense could be swindled by a glove. Whatever you think happened, didn’t. It happened because he was black. it happened because he wore a frickin hoodie..hoodies are a sure sign of gangster. It didn’t happen the way you think it logically did – Obama’s media is responsible… No, no fathers not in the home are responsible – no wait, they both had Fathers… hummmmm what could possibly cause something like this to happen? Zimmerman was just out keeping his community safe, right? There are so many “back stories” and bs being spoken, it’s hard to say what really happened. Martin is dead and dead men tell no tales. We have “witnesses” who were so frightened they wouldn’t look out of their windows. How do you witness something without looking? one might easily be persuaded to believe that a young man walking thru a community, being followed by a man who harasses him must have been up to something to cause Zimmerman to pull the trigger. His attempt to protect himself from pendind bodily harm from this stranger with a gun must have been Martin in the attack mode – yes, he was obviously the aggressor – not the man with the gun. Zimmerman was just out for an evening stroll…with his gun. He wasn’t looking for a fight. No, he was just protecting himself and his neighborhood. Martin was at fault obviously because he is just another one of those entitlement seeking youths of today. He had no reason being out in the public airway. He should not have tried to defend himself – if he had just let Zimmerman do whatever Zimmerman was going to do, he’d be alive today, right? it’s his own fault he’s dead, right? But wait a minute, it’s Obama’s fault? No, it’s hoodie manufacturers, no it’s the media’s fault…. waaaawaaaaawaaaa… bunch of cry babies. Come on, guys and dolls, it’s easy. Martin caused his own death. Zimmerman was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, He didn’t intend to kill Martin when he pulled that trigger. Martin was dead wrong to defend himself against this stranger with a gun. That’s it. Simple.

    But wait…If you step away from that mirror of fear that must stare back at each one of you, and blow the smoke of ignorance someplace else for a minute, simple truth might become evident…

    Zimmerman owned the gun that shot Martin. Zimmerman shot Martin. Martin was unarmed. Martin was walking home. Zimmerman states that Martin attacked him and he shot him in self-defense.

    put yourself in Martin’s shoes. What would you have done? How would you deal with a stranger following you on a dark rainy night? What would you have done

    Tell me what you would have done in the same situation?

  • CommonSense-

    p.s. Common Sense and a dose of reality and intelligence make it clear: Trayvon martin was on his way home and did not cause Zimmerman to pull the trigger. If Zimmerman had no gun with him that night, the encounter, if there had been one, would have turned out much differently.

    Zimmerman brought this Hell down on Trayvon Martin, his family, and his friends by using deadly force in a situation that called for neighborly introduction and adult intelligence. Zimmerman made a terrible choice when he pulled the trigger that night.
