Posted on 09/19/2012 9:24:02 AM PDT by Uncle Chip
Prosecutors today released another batch of evidence in the second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman, including more than 200 photos, but a quick review suggests there were no bombshells.
Among the new evidence is a series of DNA reports from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. They reveal that DNA tests on Zimmerman's gun and holster found evidence of multiple handlers, but none that matched Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17-year-old Zimmerman fatally shot in Sanford Feb. 26.
FDLE checked samples from the gun's grip and found no evidence that Trayvon had handled it. Technicians testing other parts of the gun and holster were only able to definitively identify Zimmerman, the records show.

This guy is being railroaded in the name of political correctness, plain and simple.
If someone reaches for your gun and you get to it first, there probably won’t be any of their DNA, so.. No big deal here. Trayvon didn’t have to be reaching anyway. Thumping Zimmerman’s head on the concrete was a potentially life threatening act, giving Zimm the green light to blow Trayvon’s ghetto azz away. Bye bye Trayvon. No great loss.
Things change dramatically when a black person is involved. Americans have had to TOLERATE the destruction of America at the hands of a black man for fear of appearing ‘racist’ if to criticize him. This would read funny in the annals of history but that’s exactly what happened.
Zimmerman was wearing a red jacket that night and told police that Trayvon, who was wearing a dark gray sweatshirt, pinned him to the ground and was hammering his head into the sidewalk.
One witness diagram shows two stick figures and the words "black shirt top" and "red shirt bottom," an apparent reference to Trayvon being on top and Zimmerman on the bottom.
They didn't just tell them. They had to diagram it out for them.
A lot is being made of the lack of DNA on the gun. I’m not sure why. You are never guaranteed to be able to find DNA on objects that are touched. A lack of DNA doesn’t prove a lack of handling. Further, unless Zimmerman told police that Martin had taken his gun from him, I don’t know if we SHOULD expect traces of DNA.
If someone reaches FOR my gun, and I slap his hand away, or grab it first, he won’t have actually touched it. If I have my hand on the gun and the guy’s hand is on my hand, there won’t be any evidence.
Every time there is more evidence released, it becomes less clear why zimmerman has been charged.
In other words, Martin never touched Zimmerman's gun.
Zimmerman even demonstrates than on the video.
The fact that there is none of Martin's DNA on Zimmerman's gun - especially the grip - is fully consistent with Zimmerman's statements.
Watch the video yourself.
Is this degree of evidence releases prior to a trial common or allowed?
It’s required by Florida law.
He sure is. Set up all the way.
“...and found no evidence that Trayvon had handled it.”
If he had George Zimmerman would be dead.....Duh!
He shot him at PBR, no way that there wasn’t some DNA (blood) on there.
Guess that proves he didn't shoot the guy after all. DNA don't lie, but prosecutors do apparently.
So the government that is prosecuting and wants to imprison George Zimmerman has determined that a piece of evidence is in its favor. What a shocker... NOT!
Trayvon was better than the best Ninja fighter, everyone later described, as he took his third and fourth hands and covered Georges nose and mouth. Good thing he was still able to blow those desperate cries for help out his rear end. Better yet that, as Trayvon held onto Georges arms with his fifth and sixth hands while grappling for the deadly gun with his seventh, super-duper ZZZimmerman was able to break his arms free from the gangstas vice-like grasp and pry the gun away in the nick of time, single-handedly taking precise aim and firing it directly into our enemys rapidly beating heart. POP!
Yes, God was on our mighty heros side that night because, Trayvon, who stood 5-feet taller and 300 lbs. heavier than the demure, yet pudgy George, ended up losing the war after knocking the man 40-feet south with one single blow. KAPOW! Through the air ZZZimmerman went, in the opposite direction, too, as the young teenage Trayvon, with one giant leap, landed viciously on top of his stunned target, like a lion lands on its prey.
<> Big Black Gangsta Boy, grabbed the gun from its holster<>
Strawman — GZ never said at anytime that Big Black Gangsta Boy grabbed the gun. He said he was reaching for it.
Sounds like the Trayvonistas are having nervous breakdowns over this. They better get back on their meds.
Wait until his social media and school records become public along with pictures of Gangsta Boi strutting his gangsta ways. Ohh yeah — they already are:
As if a deadly gunshot to the heart and lung of their 17-year-old son was not a high enough price to pay, the Martin family has been forced to endure overwhelming vilification of their son via racially slanted and political antagonist websites.
With nothing to counter, with nothing to say, their defense of George Zimmerman is to tear down the reputation of Trayvon Martin which is moot. For all intents and purpose, a minors reputation is not the person he is. He is not over 21 years old. His identity is not yet developed. He has 4 years to develop into the person/man hell eventually become and basically not a Tweet nor a Facebook page entry has a thing to with what took place on the evening of February 26, 2012.
If Trayvon Martin was a thugged out high-schooler or a mix martial arts flag pole fighter, it is not relevant. If Trayvon Martin was an 8-time convicted burglar out on a stroll to canvas his new found territory, it is not relevant because that was not the reason for George Zimmerman's call to non-emergency 911. He called because in his sick and simple-minded opinion, Trayvon Martin appeared suspicious.
If in fact he was all of those things, as his school and social media records may indicate, then no wonder he appeared suspicious.
the Martin family has been forced to endure overwhelming vilification of their son via racially slanted and political antagonist websites.
Does that include the Miami Herald:
