    George went further than forgetting to say the colour of Trayvon's pants; I believe he intended to obscure it.

    He obscured it by saying the pants were "jeans" or "sweatpants" - which is not really a decription that police can use, is it?



    What colour comes to your mind when someone says "jeans"? I bet you think it's the most common jean colour of all: deep, dark blue.

    And when you think male and sweatpants, you think it''s most likely a dark colour also...



    George was precise enough to say the colour of the hoodie, generalizing first by saying it was "dark", then getting specific enough to say "grey".

    George had such a clear view of Trayvon that he could tell grey from black in poor lighting, and he even mentions that the running shoes are white.



    BTW...how do you think George was able to differentiate between black and grey on that dark night? I think it's because Trayvon was illuminated in his headlights...but, it's possible that he also got very close to him....very close.

    He must have had a good look at Trayvon in very strong lighting.





    Can you think of any other ways George might have seen Trayvon in strong light that night? The only other opportunity was the convenience store...
