George Zimmerman Did Not Use Racial Slur, New Judge Needed in Case?

An affidavit released by the prosecutor who has charged George Zimmerman with second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin says he did not use a racial slur in a 911 call made to police shortly before killing the teen.

When a recording was released some who heard it zeroed in on three words to suggest he had uttered a slur; instead, the document filed Thursday says the phrase Zimmerman uttered was "Those f-----g punks."

It also said Zimmerman "profiled" Martin, but did not elaborate.

Some cited the alleged slur as potential evidence for the U.S. Justice Department, which could still bring a hate-crime charge against Zimmerman. And it fed growing outrage over the police department's initial decision not to arrest Zimmerman.
