Posted on 03/31/2012 9:32:23 AM PDT by STARWISE
ABC News boldly proclaimed police surveillance video of George Zimmerman being taken into the Sanford police station the night Trayvon Martin was killed showed no blood or bruises from an alleged physical encounter Zimmerman claimed to have had with 17 year-old Trayvon Martin.
Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman
A new High Definition clip from the same video appears to make clear that Zimmerman had a gash, or wound of some kind on the back of his head. That would be totally consistent with his version of events on the night in question and opposite the impression ABC News gave its viewers.
Big Journalism called the ABC video-based report reckless and revealing of nothing after it first aired.

Well then everyone needs to get behind Mitt Romney and help fulfill the White Horse Prophecy.
And most of them were probably bused in from somewhere else.
I’m sure NBC will retract, just like when they edited a tea party story and hid the fact that the tea partyer with the gun was black. Like Prager says, being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.
ABC = liars. There are no words
Thanks. Piers Morgan interviewed Zimmerman’s brother.
He confirmed the family has received death threats, and that he himself was contacted by law enforcement too because there was credible intelligence that could have threatened me. Zimmerman continued:
It is a mythology thats been built up. its not because [George] doesnt have supporters, its because people who love and support George, his family name, also support the system, the judicial system and the legal system, that we have in America.
Regarding the new video, Zimmerman said some injuries take 24 or 36 hours to show the bruising, and sometimes when the nose breaks, blood is swallowed. Were confident the medical records are going to explain all of Georges medical history, he said.
George has very severe emotional injuries, he said. He didnt call his family and express anything but sadness [...] he had changed, he wasnt the same [...] he was very disappointed that none of the neighbors had come out and helped.
Also claiming self-defense, he said George prevented his firearm from being taken from him and used against him, and thats called saving your life. It would have been George dead had he not acted decisively and instantaneously, he said.
The police report says when officers arrived Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and the back of his head. “I was yelling for someone to help me, but no one would help me,” the shooter told police.
The elder Zimmerman said words quickly escalated into an altercation.
“At that point he (Zimmerman) was punched in the nose. His nose was broken. He was knocked to the concrete. Trayvon Martin got on top of him and just started beating him in the face, in his nose, hitting his head on the concrete,” he told the Orlando TV station.
I’ve seen nothing but upstanding citizenry, compassionate humanity and decency from the Zimmerman father and brother.
Why aren’t there arrest warrants out for the leadership of the New Black Panther party, for threats, intimidation, inciting of kidnapping, etc. I’m not a lawyer but I would think this is illegal!
And HLN. Nancy and Jane allegedly have been claiming no wounds to the head and supposedly played the 911 call doctored by MSNBC.
” A wound doesnt have to be the equivalent of an ax wound.”
O U C H !! Just thinking out loud. :)
And charged with inciting violence as well. They want massive. LA type Rodney King riots and disorder.
Meanwhile the morons are buying a rumor that Zimmerman has been secretly tried and convicted and has been sentenced to 30 years to life. LOL
It is ... but that’s only when you have an honorable system of justice and rule of law.
BO made sure that all went by the wayside when he plugged in Holder at DOJ and filled the benches with progressive radicals .. all his dreams fulfilled.
No justice, no truth, if you’re not a black or other ‘offended’ minority, whose ancestors were lucky enough to come here via ship to the land of liberty from oppression abroad hundreds of years ago, some of whose black relatives were also slave owners in the culture of those long ago times, and for whom nothing .. NOTHING .. no amount of reparation, redistribution and retribution will ever be enough to repay their descendants for this centuries old cultural blight that was then common practice in the day as civilized society was evolving.
We must pay ..WE must now suffer .. WE must be punished in every way .. don’t you see?
The NAACP. Its chapters from South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama arranged buses to bring participants to the rally
I’ve been reading a lot of claims that the wound on the back of Zimmerman’s head proves he was hit from behind by Martin, thus proving that Martin started the fight.
Some of the same people are claiming that when Zimmerman fired, Martin was on top of him, banging his head on the concrete.
Unfortunately, claim B pretty much disproves claim A, as the head/concrete interface is a much more likely cause for the head wound.
Which puts us back into having little or no evidence as to who started the fight. A highly relevant point, as a person who starts a fight cannot then generally claim self-defense if he kills the other guy because he’s losing.
I do not, of course, know that is what happened. But then neither does anybody else. Except Zimmerman, and his recollections, even if 100% honest, are inevitably affected by his POV.
Of course not...and they will admit to that.
Read an article not long ago that the African blacks do not see American blacks as their own. In Africa when the nations come in to help the people there they respond and for that certain areas are developing and their helping one another overcome years of hardship.
Not so in America....they see American Blacks as lowlifers for not taking advantage of the opportunities they have nor the advantages given.
Not true, under Florida law:
776.041 Use of force by aggressor.
The justification described in the preceding sections of this chapter is not available to a person who:
(1) Is attempting to commit, committing, or escaping after the commission of, a forcible felony; or
(2) Initially provokes the use of force against himself or herself, unless:
(a) Such force is so great that the person reasonably believes that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and that he or she has exhausted every reasonable means to escape such danger other than the use of force which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to the assailant; or
(b) In good faith, the person withdraws from physical contact with the assailant and indicates clearly to the assailant that he or she desires to withdraw and terminate the use of force, but the assailant continues or resumes the use of force.
Doesn't matter if we are White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American or Eskimo. If we don't prescribe to the Race Baiting lies and innuendo pushed by Left, we are their enemy.
Holder and Obama might as well be members of the Weather Underground, SLA or Charlie Manson's Family, pushing for an all out Race War.
The silence from these supposed “leaders” is deafening.

Sanford is 90 miles northeast of Tampa.
Star...this is an interesting read by an African who came to the US......American Blacks attacking and making fun of African blacks.
“The most seethed resentment many Africans-IN-America have toward African-Americans is a personal one. Forget not being welcomed with open arms, each African-In-America has at least a story of an early encounter with one or more African-Americans that left him/her feeling less than brotherly-loved.
If you come here young enough to attend elementary and/or high school, to your surprise while many White kids are at least cordial with you,... its the African-Americans that make fun of you, your people and where you come from;.... they are the most ignorant of all that you are (and thought they too were).
Personally, it was my African-American classmates in high school that called me Kunta Kinte, laughed at my Payless shoes, and asked me if I lived on trees where I came from.
When you stand on the other side of a counter from them, they are rude, quick to be impatient with you for not speaking English or for doing so with an accent; in a relationship they are confrontational; in separation they are vindictive; as strangers they are abrasive and unrefined.
A friend once told me he hated (yes, hated) African-Americans because when he first came to Americain Southside Chicagoafter cashing his first paycheck at one of those check cashing places, he put his first American dollars in his pocket and proudly walked to the nearest bus station....
.... However, before the bus came, he was approached by an African-African who punched him in the face, robbed him of his money and left him bleeding on the snowy ground. (He has never forgiven the group for that.
Obviously it makes little sense to hate a whole group because of one encounter with one individual, but human beings, we are prone to stereotypes and often base lifelong sentiments on a single encounter. It doesnt make it right. But human beings are seldom perfect.”
