SANFORD, Fla. (TheBlaze/AP) -- A prosecutor began opening statements in George Zimmerman's trial with obscene words the neighborhood watch volunteer whispered under his breath while following 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Prosecutor John Guy's first words to jurors Monday were the "f-word" followed by "punks." He was quoting from a call Zimmerman made to a police dispatcher as he followed Martin through the gated community where he lived.

"'Fu**ing punks. These a** holes they always get away,'" Guy began. "Those were the words in that grown man's mouth as he followed in the dark a 17-year-old boy who he didn't know. And excuse my language. but those were his words not mine. 'Fu**ing punks. These a** holes they always get away.'"

Guy then recounted how Zimmerman followed Martin, a confrontation ensued and Martin was fatally shot in the chest.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder, claiming self-defense.
