George Zimmerman had bandages on nose and head after shooting, neighbors say

According to his neighbors, George Zimmerman had bandages on his nose and head the day after he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26th.

Zimmerman claims Martin jumped him, broke his nose and pounded his head into the ground inside a gated community in Sanford, Florida. He then fired one shot, hitting Martin in the chest because he feared for his life.

In a newly published report by Reuters, Zimmerman's next-door neighbor Jorge Rodriguez said that when he saw Zimmerman the day after the incident, "he had two big, butterfly bandages on the back of his head, and another big bandage...on the bridge of his nose," while he was talking to a police detective in his driveway. Rodriguez's wife Audria also said she saw the bandages and a third neighbor, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said, "I saw two bandages on the back of his head, and his nose was all swollen-up."

The new accounts by Zimmerman's neighbors give support to his claims that he acted in self-defense. The extent of Zimmerman's injuries will now be critical to his defense under Florida's "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law. It allows the use of deadly force when someone has the reasonable belief he could face death....

The truth is coming out in drips and drabs. I pray that Zimmerman does not get charged, and that he successfully sues Al Sharpton and the new black pather party for every nickel they have, and that he can live out his days safely.

He's already been charged.

A "speculative" comment:

Sharpton: "We have no way of knowing exactly how Zimmerman got these alleged injuries. For all we know, he could have gotten these as part of a "jumping in" initiation as part of a neo-Nazi group. When you're dealing with a mad-dog killer engaged in racial profiling throughout his neighborhood, there's no telling to what lengths this man might go to conceal his guilt."

“he successfully sues Al Sharpton and the new black pather party for every nickel they have, and that he can live out his days safely.”

I’m not sure the new Juden can win a lawsuit like that with the negro nazi party running America.

Anyone who cherishes truth knows it was a righteous shoot.

Everyone else can go to hell.

Waiting for the Dr’s report of a concussion.

IN the world of race baiting, these eye witness reports are meaningless:

1. If neighbors are white, they are lying racists.

2. If neighbors are Hispanic, they are WHITE-Hispanic lying racists.

3. If neighbors are Asians, they are non-victim minority lying racists.

4. If neighbors are black, they are Uncle Toms.

If I were a well-paid lawyer, I’d do his case and charge him a set fee of my total expenses and that would be it. I’d make no money off his case just to watch them pay it out to him.

The party line is that the bandages must be fake and the neighbors are obviously white hispanics.

What would really knock it out of the park is if he had his nose X-rayed right after with the time and date stamped on it and the have he doc or X-ray tech testify to that. But of course Ass Sharpton would say Zimmerman broke his own nose.

“But of course Ass Sharpton would say Zimmerman broke his own nose.”

Taking a page out of the left’s playbook the narrative should be ‘Sharpton calls Hispanics liars’. ‘Sharpton says Hispanics not people of color’.

He didn’t know it was broken until he went to the Dr the next day. The Dr in this day and age can’t say it’s broken unless they have documentation. So yes there are probably Xrays......Tick tick tick......MSM is going to look really bad!
