The police made a determination when this happened. I’m going with that.

I like how BSNBC had to “concede” the injury. What? Did they have some kind vested interest in the other side of the story?

There are a lot of posters here on FR who jumped on the bandwagon claiming Zimmerman was not injured because they didn’t see a bandage.

NBC News got caught with their credibility down around their ankles when they pixelated/distorted the video.

Now, they are doing an ‘internal investigation’ [who gets a slap on the wrist and who gets shown the door?] and using MSNBC to do damage control.

I remember the other night or two ago when they first released the grainy out-of-focus video, I thought the local network affiliate news chick was going to squeal with excitement over this `proof-positive’ that Zimmerman was in fact “unharmed”.

Mr Zimmerman has apparently elected to shut up and lawyer up. I can’t wait until phase two of that plan begins.

Sorry, but if they don’t come out and apologize and state that all need to calm down (for the problems they caused) they are guilty of causing racist problems at the least.

NBC is a racist TV station!

lets start with that our little tray was not so sweet and nice....not that he should have been killed for that, but the possibility, and the PROBABILITY is that the story was exactly what Z had said...

They said a lot worse than that. Last night, one posted from a known communist radio show. Another linked to a

Yeah, but Santorum topped’em all:

“Well, you know, obviously, I’m not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind,” Santorum said. “Obviously, in my opinion, someone … has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. You know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality. It’s a tragic, tragic case. And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I can’t imagine what they’re suffering, losing their son in such a horrific way. All I would say is that, whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one, and a very, very tragic one.”

I watched what may be that original Zimmerman video sequence shown on Fox two days ago - along with the “young innocent” photo (what has happened to FNC anyway)

A couple days previous, I had seen the photo of the head injury here.

The wound was on the upper left of the back of his head.

Video showed the right side, and the top of his head. The area with the injury was not facing either shot.

Yet, the perky Ms. Pirro seemed rather happy to show it, as if it was important.

I don't think Mr. Zimmerman should be forced to stand trial for defending himself, but if that comes to pass he will walk and stand to win millions from the "reckless disregard for the truth" practiced by these liars. I don't wish him the ordeal of a trial but will enjoy seeing him living a better life than he ever imagined for his trouble.

I wonder about the shot to the chest at point blank with the story that Martin was on top of Zimmerman in the wet grass and pounding his head against the concrete sidewalk and then Zimmerman having to kill Martin to make it stop. Is this Zimmerman’s account of that night? And with such a wound, Martin’s death would have been instantaneous correct?

No no no! They’ll say George (white name) Zimmerman (Jooo name) stlaked the innocent Treyvon, shot him in cold blood, and then broke his own nose and threw his head onto the cement as cover!

(One of the race-baiters is actually on recod saying the part about the broken nose, so no /sarc.)

"Did he hold the gun on Trayvan and say "Stop beating me!" up or did he just shoot him?"

Maybe I'm an idiot, but if someone has punched me in the face and is trying to knock me unconscious by slamming my head on the concrete, they're using deadly force on me. My common sense,especially during a beating while calling for help is use anything at my disposal to make the beating end, even if it involves deadly force.

Anyone who would disagree needs to have their nose broken and their head slammed against the concrete repeatedly until common sense allows them to think clearly.

“reckless disregard for the truth”
He’s not a public figure so he doesn’t have to satisfy the NY Times test and show actual malice either.

All he has to show that they defamed him: Any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person’s reputation; decreases the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person.

George could be sitting in the catbird seat before too long.

Something's not right about THAT account either. Didn't the police report say that Martin was found face down? If Zimmerman blew him away in the chest, If Martin died instantly, I'd think that Zimmerman would have pushed him off, rolling M onto his back. Then again, he could have just pushed M to the side. But wouldn't Z's shirt have blood on the front, then? And plenty of blood all over the scene?

So many questions, and the media has royally f'd this one up. From what we KNOW, it seems like Z HAD to have been attacked. Can't really give yourself a broken nose and scraped the back of your head. But the logistics don't make sense to me.

Ya, the liberals have told us that, if Zimmerman’s nose had been broken, that blood would have been gushing all over. Ditto if he really had a head injury.

Is anyone else troubled that, in this tragic case, opinions seem split along liberal/conservative political lines????

Just to back up a second, a man is lying there dead. It is tragic that someone got killed. The police did their job in their initial investigation. But, the reactions seem to be so political.

Or, can we ask, is there anything that happens or could happen, which the liberals will NOT politicize?????

Well, I was one who said, let’s let this play out and let the evidence, much of which was not public at first, come out.

As more evidence comes out, we see why Zimmerman was not charged, and why the police ruled it was self-defense.

You have to remember, much of the police report was not made public right off the bat.

In fact, this was not even a national story for about three weeks after the shooting. The liberals politicized it, then it went national, then calls for bounties and special prosecutors and all that went out.

And as much as is out there, I still want to see what happens. I still want to see what the grand jury says, and the special prosecutor.

I know that nothing short of murder one and a long prison sentence will make Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers happy. They have realize that a black person in an interracial incident is not always the innocent victim of racism.

I read a quote from a friend of Zimmerman that Trayvon said to him “Yo gonna die tonight “MF”” as he was beating him.

If that is true, I think Zimmerman was certainly justified in the force he used to stop him.

There’s even a high definition frame capture of a small trickle of blood coming down from the wound. A LOT can be missed in video.. It’s not at all like the old ‘film’ days. What was the cop staring at?.. An ingrown hair? I doubt it. This will backfire on the left worse than ‘Fluke’ did. The cops are doing a good job of withholding information on this case so there can be one huge collective laugh at the media, black panthers, etc. later..

I almost enjoy seeing all the mindless speculation and "funeral home director evidence" coming out and working the dimwits hopes up, with the knowledge they will be destroyed once the actual events we already know occurred are overhwelmingly supported by evidence we haven't even seen yet.

Not to mention the political fallout.

It's going to be sweet.

Maybe Zimmerman can claim he was simply firing a warning shot into the air and could not help it that Trevon was in the line of fire?
