Bloody new photo of Trayvon Martin's killer released
yahoo ^ | 12.3.2012 | Barbara Liston

ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - A color photograph of George Zimmerman with a bloody, swollen nose taken on the night he shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin last February was posted on the Internet on Monday by Zimmerman's legal defense team.

As the photo began to be circulated widely by the news media, lawyers on both sides disagreed about its significance to the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman.

"It's not a game changer," Zimmerman lawyer Mark O'Mara told Reuters. But O'Mara said the photo was significant in that it shows vividly the injuries Zimmerman incurred during his confrontation with Martin at a condominium in the central Florida town on Sanford.

The article reeks with bias, as in this quote:

“Zimmerman, who was a neighborhood watch volunteer, shot and killed 17-year-old Martin who was walking to the home in Sanford where he was staying with his father.”

Funny thing about how there’s no mention of how Martin probably got home, went stalking Zimmerman, and sucker punched Zimmerman as the start of an almost successful attempt to murder Zimmerman.

Yeah, you don’t have to read further than the title of most ‘news’ articles to see where the writer’s coming from.

Not a game changer? Why not? Zimmerman’s nose has quadrupled in size.

Like I said the picture of Zimmerman speaks a thousand words.

Never mind the hatched job of an article just look at the pic.

There is a lesson to be learned from the Martin shooting...

Yahoo met my expectation of bias. They have been so left wing in terms of what articles they put on their front page, it’s disgusting.

Not a game changer because it wasn't an unknown. Obviously Mark knew about it. I do remember the prosecutor saying George didn't even go to the hospital that night.

IIRC, they detained him for 6 hours.

George Zimmerman, guilty until proven innocent. The media so badly wants him convicted with these types of headlines.

Sad part is that we have GOP actively aiding the Black Racists in this “lynching” of Zimmerman....Duval State Atty Angela Corey, Atty Gen Pam “Dark Meat” Bondi...and Gov. Rick Scott. At any time they can end this travesty now

Zimmerman is innocent, and this is a case of rightful self-defense

If there is no trial by the end of 2013....you will see Gov Scott and AG Bondi sweating this out....they will not survive a primary with this case not tossed out

“Martin was trying to defend himself (Crump)”?

So Zimmerman was trying to kill Martin by bashing him to death with the back of his head?

Somebody ought to put together a timeline of Crump’s ever-changing versions of the story.

I'm sure massive, systematic, grass roots Democratic [sic] party election fraud played a greater role, but yes, using the feral government to ravage Zimmerman's civil rights did, indeed, help.

““Zimmerman, who was a neighborhood watch volunteer, shot and killed 17-year-old Martin who was walking to the home in Sanford where he was staying with his father.””

I suspect that most people on this site that have shot guns don’t wind up with a bloody face doing it. They seem to convienently miss the point that there summary of the events of that evening.

"Trayvon Martin was defending himself. He had every right to stand his ground to defend himself," Crump said.

Wow. Would you look at that. Crump is now a believer in Stand Your Ground.

Maybe GZ can send him an autographed picture of these injuries that Crump has for 8 months been denying that GZ had that night.

Laying on your back with someone straddling you and that sort of injury (with bleeding down the back of the throat and on your mouth likely profuse), the effect would not be unlike being waterboarded.

The feeling you were drowning in your own blood would likely be intense.

He didn't, until ABC altered his picture, although still looks hispanic to me.
