SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Much has been debated about that tragic night Trayvon Martin was shot. Here is what we know based on the 911 call that came in that night from George Zimmerman himself.
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: Sanford Police Department.
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: We've had some break-ins in my neighborhood and there's this suspicious guy.
This guy looks like he's up to no good or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around and looking about.
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: OK, and this guy, is he white, black or Hispanic?
ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: We've got someone on the way, just let me know if this guy does anything else.
ZIMMERMAN: OK, these (EXPLETIVE) they always get away. (EXPLETIVE) He's running.
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: He's running? Which way is he running?
ZIMMERMAN: Down towards the other entrance of the neighborhood.
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: OK, which entrance is that that he's heading towards?
ZIMMERMAN: The back entrance (EXPLETIVE)
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: Are you following him?
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: OK. We don't need you to do that.
UNIDENTIFIED DISPATCHER: All right, sir, what is your name?
ZIMMERMAN: George. He ran.
HANNITY: Now minutes later, Trayvon Martin was dead and a controversy was ignited. Here to give us his son's side of the story is George Zimmerman's father, Robert, and his attorney, Craig Sooner and Hal Uhrig is with us.
Thank you all for being here. Mr. Zimmerman, I know obviously you don't want to be on camera and there is a reason for it. Can you tell our audience why?
ROBERT ZIMMERMAN, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN'S FATHER: Well, we received numerous death threats.
HANNITY: OK. One of the things that's come out of this case is there has been a bounty that has been put on your son's head. You know that famous Hollywood star Spike Lee, Roseanne Barr have tweeted out, at least in the case of Spike Lee what he thought was your son's address.
What has this meant, in that sense, how difficult has that been for your family and do you think this has been a rush to judgment by the media?
ZIMMERMAN: It's absolutely been a rush to judgment.
HANNITY: Yes. Why don't you walk us through because you obviously have spoken to your son. Tell us his side of this story on this night. Tell us what happened.
ZIMMERMAN: Well, it's customary on Sunday night for George to go and do grocery shopping. He had been texting his sister and told her that he was going to go and do grocery shopping. He got in his vehicle to leave the community. He saw somebody that did not live in the community walking behind some townhomes. That small gated community has had a lot of problems with burglaries and people coming into that community to commit crimes. So he thought that it was suspicious.
HANNITY: OK. So and I understand it was raining that night, and when you say that he saw Trayvon Martin walking behind townhomes. Are you saying that he was up-close to where the homes were? Is that why he was suspicious?
ZIMMERMAN: I -- I don't know exactly where Trayvon Martin was walking. I'm not real sure of that.
HANNITY: There have been implications of that been made. One was that on the 911 tape that we just played, that he might have used a racial slur. That has been countered by other people.
Two stories that I recently read, and one is that is it true that your son would tutor African-American and minority children on the weekend. And is it also true that there was a case involving the Sanford police in which a son after police officer hid an African-American homeless man and he spoke out against the policeman. Is that true, too, sir?
ZIMMERMAN: It is true. Concerning the assault on the homeless man, he went around to churches and put flyers on people's cars. He just felt sorry for this homeless man not having anyone to support him. And he --
HANNITY: Has he ever used any racial slur that you know of, sir?
ZIMMERMAN: None whatsoever.
HANNITY: Let me ask you, when the dispatcher said to him on that 911 tape, we don't need you to do that, meaning because he said, yes, I'm following Trayvon Martin.
Did he follow him? Did you ask him if he followed him at that point? And what happened from that point forward? Tell us the rest of the story.
ZIMMERMAN: From where George's vehicle was, there's a sidewalk that goes to the next street over.
