    Sanford Police Officer, Chris Serino, testified Tuesday that George Zimmerman, 29, “followed” 17-year-old Trayvon Martin out of “ill-will and spite,” and exaggerated the extent of his injuries.

    As previously reported by NewsOne, Serino wanted to charge Zimmerman with manslaughter on the night that he killed Martin, but he was told by the Florida state attorney’s office to hold off because they determined there was not enough evidence to lead to a conviction.

    From the very beginning, Serino said that Zimmerman had a “little hero complex” and accused him of  profiling Martin:

    “You wanted to catch him. You wanted to catch the bad guy, the f—–g punk who can’t get away,” Serino said.

    Zimmerman replied,  “I wasn’t following him; I was just going in the same direction he was.”

    Serino responded, “That’s following.”

    Serino referred to Zimmerman as probably being a “good guy,” but found it suspicious that his minor injuries didn’t match his account of being viciously beaten by a “child” carrying candy and an iced tea. He also noted that Zimmerman had no defensive wounds on his hands, as one would expect from such a violent struggle.

    “That was a kid with a future, a kid with folks that care. Not a goon,” Serino told Zimmerman during the interrogation. “In his mind’s eye, he perceived you as a threat. He has every right to defend himself.”

    During his testimony Tuesday, Serino repeated that he believed Zimmerman followed Martin, who was doing nothing wrong.

    Dr. Valerie Rao, a Jacksonville-based medical examiner who examined Zimmerman, disputed his claims that Martin slammed his head repeatedly on the pavement.

    “[Zimmerman’s] injuries were not life threatening … very insignificant.”
