Complete Transcript, Singleton Interview, 1st Tape, 2/26/2012

I’ve started working on transcribing the audio interviews that police did with George Zimmerman.  I know there are transcripts on the web, but I have found them to be in inaccurate, incomplete or both.

Here’s my approach to transcripts. As much as possible I try to record the transcript exactly as the speaker articulated.  If a person says “walkin”, I don’t write “walking”.  If a person says “gonna” I don’t write “going to”.  I also try to place the interjections precisely where they occur.  In other words, if Zimmerman is talking and Singleton interrupts with an “OK”, then I place that OK right where she spoke it, not after the end of Zimmerman’s statement.

I don’t leave anything out.  If the Detective reads Zimmerman his Miranda rights, I record precisely what she said and what Zimmerman’s responses were.

Eventually I will have transcribed all the audio, but it’s really slow going, laborious work.  So it will be a while before I complete this project.

Having said all that, this is the transcript of the 1st tape of Detective Singleton interviewing George Zimmerman on the night of the shooting, shortly after he had arrived at Sanford Police Department Headquarters.

Update: Here’s the audio: audio_statement_0226_1

Singleton: Today the date is Feb 22nd, 2012. This is Investigator Singleton. I’m sitting in an interview room at the Sanford Police Department with George Michael Zimmerman in reference to an event that happened out at 2831 Retreat View Circle. I’m going to read you your Miranda rights, because obviously you are here, um, and you aren’t free to go right now because we gotta figure out what’s going on.
Zimmerman: Sure.
Singleton: You haven’t been charged with a crime yet, but you are here and you can’t go until we figure out what really happened, um, and so I’m going, I’m gonna to ask you to talk about it but I gotta give you a Miranda warning so that you understand.
Zimmerman: Sure.
Singleton: OK? OK, you have the right to remain silent. You don’t have to talk to me. OK? Anything you, you say can be used, can be used against you in court. OK? If you say something that proves your guilt, we can use it to prove your guilt. OK? You understand that, OK? You have the right to have an attorney present now or at any time during questioning. Do you understand that?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you without any cost. OK? If you talk to me you have the right to stop tal– answering questions or speak to an attorney at any time. OK? Do you understand these rights?

Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: I have called a few times. You guys probably have the records.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: I’ve probably called a half a dozen times.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: Um, and this time I was leaving to go to the grocery store and, like I said, I saw him, um, walking in the neighborhood the same, in front of the same house that I had called the police before to come to because this guy leaves his doors unlocked and stuff. And he was walking leisurely and looking at the houses, and, um, so I just pulled my car to the side and I called the non emergency line, um
Singleton: OK. Were you, were you, were you armed at this point?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: You were already armed.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: Um, I called the non emergency line and I just reported that there was a suspicious person in the neighborhood. Um, the dispatcher, whoever answered the phone asked me where they went and I said I wasn’t sure because I lost visual of him when he went in between houses. And, uh, he said well can you tell me what direction he went. I said not really. Um, and then all of a sudden I see him circling my car. And, and then he goes back into the darkness. So..
Singleton: unintelligible. You pull out of your house…and you’re heading..
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: and you’re heading, you’re heading down the road as your looking at him
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: You’re on the phone? And he dips between two houses? Is that what you mean?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: cause you lose sight of him, OK?
Zimmerman: Correct. And then he comes back out
Singleton: um hum.
Zimmerman: and circles my car while I’m on the phone with the police.
Singleton: OK. Is he saying anything to you?
Zimmerman: I couldn’t hear him. My windows were up.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: As soon as I saw him coming up I rolled up my windows and I stayed on the phone with dispatch.
Singleton: OK. He,..your car was running?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: The lights were on?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. So he knew somebody was in this car?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: And is he walking completely around the car?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: Um, and, dispatch asked me where he went. I didn’t know the name of the street that I was on, I
Singleton: So you’d come off your street and gotten to another street
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: at some point? OK.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am. Goes in, cuts through the middle of my neighborhood.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: I didn’t know the name of the street. Um, or where he went. So I got out of my car to look for the street sign, and to see if I could see where he cut through so that I could tell the police where…
Singleton: So after he circled your car he disappeared again?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: Um, then, dispatcher told me, ah, where are you? and I said I’m trying to find out where he went. And he said we don’t need you to do that. And I said OK. Ah, he said we already have a police officer en route. And I said alright, I, I had gone where, through the dog walk where I normally walk my dog, and walked back through to my street, the street that loops around. And he said we already have a police officer on
the way. So I said OK. I told, they said, would you like a police officer to meet you, and I said yes. And I told them where my car was and the make and the model.
Singlton: Um hum.
Zimmerman: So, I was walking back through to where my car was and he jumped out from the bushes and he said, What the fuck’s your problem, homie? And I got my cell phone out to call 911 this time.
Singleton: Um hum.
Zimmerman: And I said, Hey man, I don’t have a problem. And he goes, No, now you have a problem. And he punched me in the nose. At that point I fell down, ah I tried to defend myself, he just started punching me in the face. And, ah, I started screaming for help, I couldn’t see, I couldn’t breathe. Then he started taking my head..
Singleton: Are you still standing at this point?
Zimmerman: No ma’am.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: I fell to the ground when he punched me the first time.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: It was dark. I didn’t even see him getting ready to punch me. As soon as he punched me, I fell backwards, um, into the grass, and then he grabbed, he was whaling on my head, and I st..then I started yelling help. When I started yelling for help he grabbed my head and he started hitting my head into the, I, I tried to sit up and yell for help. And then he grabbed my head and starting hitting it into the sidewalk. Um, when he started doing that, I slid into the grass to try and get out from under him and so that he would stop hitting my head into the sidewalk and I was still yelling for help. And I could see people looking and some guy yells out, I’m calling 911. And I said, Help me, help me, he’s killing me. And, he puts his hand on my nose and on my mouth and he says, You’re gonna die tonight. And, I don’t remember much after that. I just remem..I couldn’t breathe, and then he still kept trying to hit my head against the pavement, or, I don’t know if there was a sign or what it was…so I just, oh when I slid, my jacket and my shirt came up. And when he said, You’re gonna die tonight, I felt his hand go down on my side, and I thought he was going for my firearm. So I grabbed it immediately, and as he banged my head again, I just pulled out my firearm and shot him.
Singleton: OK. And then what happened? Did he, he, you’re, you’re both on the ground
Zimmerman: I’m on my back.
Singleton: And he’s on top of you?
Zimmerman: He’s on top of me.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: He’s mounted on top of me. And I just shot him,
Singleton: OK
Zimmerman: and then he falls off and he’s like, Alright. You got it. You got it.
Singleton: Does he fall to the side and he stays laying on the ground? Or does..
Zimmerman: I don’t remember.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: I, my vision
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: was blurry and uh…
Singleton: You didn’t feel him fall towards you? He somehow ended up to one side or the other? Or you don’t know?
Zimmerman: I don’t remember. He, I think when I shot him, it might have pushed him back. But I remember I didn’t know what he was hitting, it felt like he was hitting me with bricks. So I remember I, once I shot him, I holstered my firearm and I got on top of him and I held his hands down because he was still talking, and he, and uh, I said, Stay down. Don’t move. And, uh, then somebody comes out and I couldn’t see, there was a flashlight on my head. So I asked if it was a police officer. And he said, No, it was a witness, but he was calling the police. And I said, The police are on their way. They should be here already, because I had called.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: And, uh, he’s like, I’m calling the police. And I said, I don’t need you to call the police. I need you to help me with this guy. And, uh, then an officer shows up, again he had the flashlight so I couldn’t see him. And he asked me, uh, Who shot this guy? And I said, I did. And I put, I immediately put my hands on top of my head, and I told the police officer where my firearm was.
Singleton: OK
Zimmerman: And then he handcuffed me and took my firearm.
Singleton: OK. After you, after you shot him he said, You got me?
Zimmerman: Yeah.
Singleton: OK. And then when you got on top of him, did he say anything else?
Zimmerman: He said, Ow, ow.
Singleton: And he was, OK. Um, you said you were, you had walked back there.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: to try to find out where he went.
Zimmerman: to..
Singleton: And you were already on the phone with dispatch at that point? Because you said you called them from your car..
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. So the whole time you were on the phone
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: with dispatch? Were you still on the phone with them when he, when he came, when he jumped out and?
Zimmerman: No.
Singleton: OK. You had hung up?
Zimmerman: Yes.
Singleton: OK. Did, did someone else call before the shot? You said he was already calling, right? Or while he was beating, hitting you said you heard someone say I’m calling,
Zimmerman: Yes.
Singleton: I’m calling? OK. So someone else might have been on the phone
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: with dispatch while you were being beat up?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: Alright. And you had never seen this guy before?
Zimmerman: I don’t recall. It’s always dark. They always come around nighttime and…
Singleton: Yeah. What did he look like?
Zimmerman: African-American, early, early 20s late teens. Ah, he was taller than me, uh, so I’d say 6-footish, slender build, um…
Singleton: Do you remember what he was wearing?
Zimmerman: Yes, I gave em a description over the phone, ah, a hoodie and either sweatpants or jeans.
Singleton: It was all dark-colored stuff?
Zimmerman: No. The hoodie was grey and the sweatpants were like maybe like a st.. denim color, like stone-washed denim.
Singleton: What, what was his hair style? Did he have short hair
Zimmerman: He had the hood on.
Singleton: or did he have dreads or… So you couldn’t see?
Zimmerman: No, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. Alright.’s your head?
Zimmerman: I can’t feel it.
Singleton: OK, and who told you…you said, you said when I came in here, they said someone
Zimmerman: Ah
Singleton: told you you brOKe your nose?
Singleton: Who told you
Zimmerman: The EMT.
Singleton: that? Who told you that? OK. Did you need to go to the hospital?
Zimmerman: I don’t know. They said I didn’t. But I don’t know.
Singleton: Is this bump…I can’t tell what’s, what’s normal for you. Can you see in, can you see…?
Zimmerman: I can’t.
Singleton: Like right here. Does this right here, does that look like a contusion there of some sort or is that
Zimmerman: that looks..
Singleton: the normal shape of your head?
Zimmerman: No. That’s not normal.
Singleton: OK. Cause it looks swollen there. Can I see the other side? OK, I’m gonna get up so I can…OK, the person who, um, who said I’m calling, I’m calling for you…Did you recognize that person?
Zimmerman: No, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. So you don’t know if that was a resident or…
Zimmerman: Ah, they were looking out of their back patio, their back…
Singleton: OK, so it was somebody who was looking from a residence? Saying that they were calling?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK, did you see more than just that person or…
Zimmerman: No, ma’am.
Singleton: OK, so you saw that person and that person said I’m calling.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. Nobody came over to assist in pulling them off. Um, and you were between 2 houses when this happened?
Zimmerman: Uh, behind the houses.
Singleton: You were behind the houses?
Zimmerman: There’s a row of houses, yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK, so there’s a row of houses and you had gone back behind and then you were on your way back
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: out? OK. Was it one of the houses along the wall. I don’t know where this happened, so
Zimmerman: No, ma’am, uh uh. Would you like me to draw it for you?
Singleton: Yeah, sure, you can do that.
Zimmerman: The neighborhood is kinda like a square. Like this. And then, um, there’s a row of houses here. This is the wall and there’s houses here and there’s another row of houses here. And this is houses. I parked my car here, the mailboxes here. He went through this dog walk here and you can either go down the sidewalk here between this row of houses, or you can go straight through.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: To this street. So this is, um, asphalt, I’m sorry my hand…
Singleton: That’s OK.
Zimmerman: This is asphalt and, ah…So I walked straight through to see if there was a street sign that I could tell dispatch
Singleton: Um hum.
Zimmerman: where I lost sight of him then. And when I walked back, that’s when he came out of the darkness and I guess he was upset that I called the police.
Singleton: So this is behind the house that he comes out of the darkness?
Zimmerman: I…yes, ma’am.
Singleton: Behind the building? OK, and you said there’s some bushes or something…
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: That he may have came out of? OK.
Zimmerman: Because when I walked past, I didn’t see him down here. I went, so I walked through to make sure…You know, I looked to make sure he wasn’t there.
Singleton: Right.
Zimmerman: And then I walked straight through to see a street sign and then when I came back obviously he was waiting somewhere.
Singleton: OK. And where is your cell phone, ah, I mean, where did, where was your cell phone? Did it, had you already had it back in your pocket at that point or had you…
Zimmerman: When I…
Singleton: Did it get dropped or what happened with your cell phone?
Zimmerman: No, I had it in my hand. When he, I put it, they said would you like the police officer to meet you and I said yes. My car’s…there…
Singleton: And that’s when they disconnected with you?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: That’s when they said OK they’re on scene, OK.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am. So I did, I put my cell phone away.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: And then when I walked back towards him…I, I saw him coming at me and I went to grab my phone…I don’t remember if I had time to pull it out or not.
Singleton: OK, you attempted to try to recall the…
Zimmerman: To call the police.
Singleton: To call the police, right.
Zimmerman: 911 this time
Singleton: OK
Zimmerman: cause the first time I called non-emergency…
Singleton: But you’re not sure if you actually got it out of your pocket or not?
Zimmerman: No, I don’t recall.
Singleton: OK. And that’s when it was, that’s when he slugged you. He just hit me, yeah.
Singleton: And what did he say before that?
Zimmerman: Ah….
Singleton: You said he asked you like something about, he said you got a problem?
Zimmerman: He said “You got a problem, homey?”
Singleton: Yeah.
Zimmerman: And I said, I don’t wanna have a problem, and he said “Now you have a problem.”
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: And that’s when he hit me.
Singleton: And that’s…he struck you in the nose first?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: And that’s what knocked you down?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. And this is…this is…you’re saying this is behind the buildings though?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: Is there…are you sure…is it a patio, that he’s hitting? Cause you said he’s hitting your head on a sidewalk.
Zimmerman: No, no, it’s the sidewalk. It’s…
Singleton: But it’s the sidewalk behind the building?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am, it’s a dog walk…
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: And this is a row of houses
Singleton: OK
Zimmerman: and this is a row of houses…and this is the dog walk.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: So I walked back here, he hit me…
Singleton: So the dog walk is cement?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK, OK, that makes sense. OK, so he’s hitting your head and um…
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am. As I went to sit up then he grabbed me by the front of my head and started banging into the…
Singleton: And that’s when you can look either to your left or right, and you can see this guy, and you’re saying help me?
Zimmerman: I don’t remember. I screamed help me for like 50 times as loud as I could.
Singleton: OK, but at some you made, you could visually see that there was someone…
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: Saying something to you
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: from a patio. Do you remember what that person looked like?
Zimmerman: No.
Singleton: OK, and the police got there…
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: And you were holding him down
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: And they asked you…
Zimmerman: No. Once the police got there I got on my feet because there was another person that got there…I guess a resident. I couldn’t see, he had a flashlight so I thought it was a police officer.
Singleton: And at that point you stood up and got off him?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: And then when the police got there…I was already standing up
Singleton: OK
Zimmerman: and I…I put my hands on top of my…
Singleton: OK, so we’re talking about seconds between the time you see the flashlight and the police show up, or was it a little bit?
Zimmerman: It seemed like a while but I’m sure it was seconds.
Singleton: OK. And they put you at gunpoint?
Zimmerman: I don’t know.
Singleton: You don’t know?
Zimmerman: I had my back…I put my hands on my head and I turned my back to ‘em immediately.
Singleton: OK. What are, what are they saying to you, the police?
Zimmerman: He said who shot, what, who shot him? And I said I did.
Singleton: OK. That’s when you did this.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am. And I said I have my gun on my right side
Singleton: OK
Zimmerman: in my holster in my waistband. And he said, I know you do, he goes but I have to handcuff you first. And I said I just want to make sure you know I’m not going for my firearm.
Singleton: OK.
Zimmerman: And he put my arms down and handcuffed me.
Singleton: OK, and then where did they take you?
Zimmerman: Uh…here.
Singleton: They just put you right in the police car right away?
Zimmerman: Ah, no, EMS, um, put peroxide on my head and they, they put peroxide on my, uh, face to get the blood off.
Singleton: OK. OK. Is there anything else I haven’t asked you or you haven’t said that…
Zimmerman: Not that I can think of.
Singleton: Anything that’s important for me to know?
Singleton: OK. And you said you’re in charge of the Neighborhood Watch group?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. And, um, you…you were just, but you weren’t doing it that night or is it…
Zimmerman: No.
Singleton: You were just going to the store, you said.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: OK. And driving out and you happened to see this kid and you wanted to check out with him, right?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: Make sure he’s OK. OK, well actually you did the right thing, you called the police.
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: To have them check out. You just noticed him, OK. Is that what normally what you guys do when you see someone suspicious, you just call?
Zimmerman: Yes, ma’am.
Singleton: You don’t try
Zimmerman: non emergency
Singleton: to make contact with them?
Zimmerman: No.
Singleton: OK. Alright.


Believe me, I know what a PITA that is. 🙂 I’m actually hoping to find time over this long weekend to finally finish a transcript of the re-enactment. That will include descriptions of what they are doing and pointing out as well as the conversation and interaction between the participants.
