And the lynching continues.
First, the claims about the video tape.
[VIDEO AT SITE]
What? No bruising visible on the brown man one hour or so after the injury?
Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman
Or does it? Here are my screen caps
Zimmerman does indeed exhibit a head wound
One of the officers examines the wound to see if it is still bleeding
Here's the funniest image. The police put a Caucasian clown nose on Zimmerman. Or maybe it was a dressing.
There is something on Zimmerman's nose
The police report says that Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and the back of the head. It says his back was wet and covered with grass. There is nothing about "grass stains."
We can't see from this video if there is any remaining blood on Zimmerman's red and black fleece or his dark grey shirt.
Anyone else notice that the "white Hispanic" George Zimmerman is a lot browner than at first believed?
Now consider these headline from Drudge:

Wow - on a different note - sorry you had to experience something like that. Suicide is sad, but the ultimate selfish act - particularly when they bring in innocent strangers.
“A high-tech lynching” in progress.
“He wouldn’t have even had to leave. He just had to avoid attacking Zimmerman.”
According to La Raza, I'm pretty sure they think it was Zimmerman's white half that pulled the trigger.
"The fact that George Zimmerman is Latino is irrelevant to his actions," Navarette, who is an adviser to Murguia, said in response to the criticism. "Personally that's the media's fault. Everything has to fit into a narrative and a paradigm. Initially it was a white guy who shot a black kid. Now they've split the difference," she said.
Unfortunately, it is only the opinion of a writer at flopping aces that Trayvon’s girlfriend “exonerates Zimmerman - she herself makes no direct exoneration of Zimmerman. The writer takes her words and concludes that her words demonstrate something that “exonerates” Zimmerman.
Whether or not her words mean what the author thinks they do, she demonstrates no such belief herself and the title very misleading implies she does.
It would be interesting to see a check on Martin's forearms for nitrate residue. I have no doubt of what the outcome would have been had Martin seized control of Zimmerman's pistol!
PS Karma is a bitch...
From floppingaces: “Someone did push someone else. But who? Lets look at this reasonably. If Zimmerman was hunting down Martin he would simply have shot him instead of engaging him in a conversation. If he meant to execute him he could easily have done just that. If youre hunting someone, your gun is drawn. Do you agree to meet with the cops and then go hunting for Martin? Is it common to have a conversation with your prey before you shoot? Are you kidding me?”
Moreover, if you were “hunting down” someone, would you call 911 first? Why not just shoot first and then call 911 to explain that your victim had attacked you? Zimmerman’s behavior and especially his demeanor on the 911 call are entirely inconsistent with the image of him as being rogue vigilante.
These are the only plausible scenarios where liberals are correct:
1) Police falsified their reports and are assisting in the coverup along with eveyrone else at the scene.
2) Zimmerman attacked Martin and when Zimmerman was losing the fight, he shot Martin.
There are no other choices for liberals anymore.
Also, when he asked for a description of the suspicious man, he isn’t entirely sure he is black. He said he looked black. He only verifies he’s black when he starts walking towards him. This sort of negates the narrative that he was profiling him because he was black.
It was interesting to see what the suspicious activity was according to Zimmerman’s father. He said Trayvon wasn’t walking on the street or sidewalk, instead walking by the townhouses.
Of course it's not like the movies. But no blood at all?
I do know that when I was in a car accident, the Air Bag went off, hit my face and my sunglasses cut into the bridge of my nose.
The entire left side of my face was covered in blood, but I did not get any blood on my clothes.
Thanks for the kind words. Your last sentence wraps it up exactly.
This is the part of Zimmerman’s story I have the hardest time with. If, as Zimmerman claims, Martin was on top of him, beating him, and reaching for his gun when he shot him, Why is Zimmerman’s shirt not showing any signs of blood spatter? Knowing a little something about forensics from my crim law days, I’d think it would be impossible to shoot somebody at point blank range, especially while BELOW them, and not get blood on you.
They're confused as to which side to jump to? They're smart in not wanting black gang bangers in their faces?
:: People make certain first assumptions about you based on what you wear. ::
Exactly and without regard to skin color!
No matter what race, if you see a man pushing a WalMart cart down the sidewalk filled with garbage bags of items and wearing 4 wintercoats, several pairs of pants and beat-up sneakers, what is your “profile”?
You, me, LEO and even POTUS immediately thinks, “homeless”.
BTW, what is the exact source of evidence that Zimmerman did NOT heed the admonition to stop following Martin? From the call to emergency services, it sounds like he acknowledges/will comply with the suggestion to stop following.
I’m not aware of any eyewitnesses who observed the 2 between the time he got off the phone and the time the other eyewitness saw Martin on top of him. So why have I seen more than one news source claim he kept on following Martin?
Makes sense. Thanks for the info!
Exactly, It’s amazing that people can clearly hear a racial epithet, but they can’t hear him say “okay” when he’s told they don’t need him to follow. George’s father added some context here too when he says he was looking for a street sign or address for the operator.
I guess people hear what they want to hear and disregard the rest.
Zimmerman is sometimes a Jewish name, sometimes not. I had a classmate in high school whose last name was Zimmerman who was a Catholic. Arthur Zimmermann of “Zimmermann telegram” fame (1917) was presumably not Jewish. Ethel Merman’s name was originally Zimmermann—from her Wikipedia biography it doesn’t appear that she was Jewish.
I just spent 20 min. looking around the internet on “entry” wounds. The common description is that they tend to be small, and bleeding is often minimal - it depends on the way the bullet entered. A straight shot will produce the smallest hole, of course. Bleeding is not always present outside of the body at the entry wound, or can be in very small amounts, especially immediately following impact. Since it was reported that Martin fell off to the side of Zimmerman after the gun shot, it is very likely that almost no blood would have gotten on Zimmerman. He may have had tiny spatters, which would not have shown in that low quality video.
I know from my brother in law, who is a DC officer, that often people have gun shot wounds which are difficult to find - because there can be so little blood. My husband has seen many gun wounds also, and he has mentioned the same thing.
