George called the police to report him as a suspicious person that is “just walking around and looking about”,
and also said that “this guy looks like he is up to no good or he is on drugs or something.”,
George was also heard saying “these assholes, they always get away”

Few mins later, George pursued after Trayvon, the police dispatch told George that they do NOT need him to follow Trayvon,
to which George responded with “Okay.”

George ended the call with the police.
After that, a viiolent encounter took place between him and Trayvon.
It ended with George fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, almost 65 meters away from Trayvon’s family house.
