Response to onlyadream (Original post)

9. sounds to me that he was saying "fucking punks"

It's really immaterial anyway since what he DID clearly say elevates it to a hate crime. He tells 911 that there have been a lot of recent crimes in the neighborhood committed by black people, and the ONLY thing he knows about Martin in his observations that he said to 911 was that he was black. He mentions NOTHING that Martin is DOING that could reasonably seen as suspicious, and in fact what he DOES say that Martin was doing that he believed was suspicious clearly was not... walking while black is not a reasonable suspicion of criminality unless one is racist. In other words, he was ONLY suspicious of Martin because he was black, and attempted to justify his racist suspicion of Martin by mentioning the alleged recent crimes by other black people. Clear racist hate crime.
