Rachel Jeantel: ‘I Believe Trayvon Hit First’
By Jermaine Spradley
Trayvon Martin’s friend and George Zimmerman trial witness, Rachel Jeantel recently sat down with HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill during a candid interview to discuss her perception on the confrontation between the former neighborhood watchman and the late 17-year-old.
One of the key points of contention between the prosecution and defense during the trial of Zimmerman, who was acquitted of second-degree murder after killing the unarmed teen, was the question of who initiated the physical confrontation between the two.
Jeantel expounded on her thoughts on what occurred when Zimmerman and Martin met face to face. “I believe Trayvon hit first,” she said. She went on to describe how she believed that Trayvon throwing the first punch was likely caused by Zimmerman attempting to grab and detain Martin.

I’m actually shocked that the Huffington Post put that video interview online, lets hope they don’t take it down… I bet this wont make the nightly mainstream news since misleading content intended to divide Americans seems to be the thing to air lately. Where is the President of the United States while this travesty continues to fuel unnecessary confusion and hate?
