The man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, setting off a nationwide outpouring of anger, told police that Martin knocked him down with a single punch and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times — an account that police said witnesses have corroborated, according to The Orlando Sentinel

Really?

I guess that just goes to prove the old adage that some folks will argue about water being wet...

At least it gives us someone to laugh at. ;-)

Has the pro-trayvon crowd suggested that Zim punched himself in the face and slashed the back of his neck....yet?

Yep. Over at DU. Some idjit said Zim probably hurt himself and rolled around in the grass after shooting the self dubbed "no_limit_nigga", er, little black boy.

Toxicology tests on Martin's body were still pending, but a spokesman for his family confirmed to NBC News that Martin was suspended for 10 days from Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School in Miami for possession of an empty marijuana baggie.

Very high likelihood this is going to blow-up in the Dems face.

Hispanics are going to feel that Zimmerman is getting rairoaded and they will start pushing back. A Black vs. Hispanic race war will start the Internal Destruct Sequence for the Democrat Party. They cannot allow it to happen.

The Dems are like Zero Mostel’s character in The Producers, selling 150% of a show. Both blacks AND hispanics cannot be #1 Favored Minority.

Question: If Martin had knocked out Zimmerman while breaking his nose, who would have been arrested?

Sometimes and I know this will be hard for some to believe, two people, BOTH exercising epically poor judgement collide and the results are deadly.

Not the makings of a race riot.

Just altogether stupid -including Obama.

Like the the accusations of the Tea Party making racist slurs towards the congressmen a few months ago. Turns out that they could never prove it and we never heard from the accusers again when proof was demanded.

Put up or shut up.

Besides, it is a classic case of “cry wolf.” Will people believe with it actually happens?

And making racist slurs during the commission of a crime contributes to a hate crime. So, to accuse someone of this without proof or evidence is slanderous.

Don’t forget the Jews...Zimmermann’s Mother is Jewish as is his surname. Jews and Hispanics, Obama and the Dems may have succeeded in pizzing off the 2 largest demographic groups in FL...a traditional swing state.

Where’s Breitbart when you need him? I think he was onto something that got him killed. OT but I don’t think his predecessors will ever live up to his legacy. Fear maybe.

Huh? You’re telling me his Peruvian mother is Jewish? That explains why he was an altar boy in the Catholic church. LOL I think his father is/was Jewish thus the name ZIMMERMAN.

I, of course, will be the first, unlike the MSM, to admit when I am wrong if that is not the case.

Some reports of injuries to Zimmerman would, as good circumstantial evidence, corroborate Zimmerman’s version of events; i.e. cuts on the back of the head, broken nose, stains on the back of his shirt etc.

The official police report (which has been posted on FR) provides this.

In addition, medical reports from the Emergency Room where he was taken could also provide support or refutation of Zimmerman’s version of events.

He didn't go to the ER. The police report specifically says that after he was treated on-site, they didn't see the need to take him there. He instead was taken to the police station.

So now it’s an “alleged” attack on Zimmerman but in other news stories, Zimmerman definitely murdered, shot, killed Martin.

Only from the officer that took Zimmerman into custody. It ends after he took Zimmerman to the station.

A Google search yielded it quickly:

I see. They take Zimmerman’s booking picture which makes him look like a criminal and compare it to a dated photo of the so called victim. Nice.

“It might have been completely irrelevant ... if Martin’s family, the MSM and all the assorted race-baiters hadn’t promoted the boy’s squeaky-clean image as prima facie evidence that he couldn’t have attacked Zimmerman.”

Mega bump.

Obama is now 0 for 2 when injecting his big mouth and small brain into local police matters. And “coincidentally” both times he knee-jerk sided with blacks while dissing law enforcement. Some President we have.

... Sadly though, there has been a tsunami of falsehoods and pictures of thugs who people pretended were of Martin posted here for days. The mods were busy all weekend deleting the pics. ...

to be fair, they may have been taken in by what could be disinformation.

I did a search of face book and found numerous sites for trayvon williams with id numbers that suggest they were created at about the same time. Some have angelic pics; some have gang banger pics. This is probably Martin's site; it uses his nick name slimm:

anybody know the reasoning for the *red* 's' and 'k' in the t-shirt ???

also, the origin of 'cracker' ??? i thought it was a 'white' reference, ie saltine... *white hispanic* doesnt fit and seems to show basic ignorance of the English language...

maybe its all just an ebonics thang that i just dont understand ???

I posted a link to the Trayvon Slimm Martin FB account last week. It means nothing to those here who say, "all the thug pics were scrubbed".

People believe what fits their own desired narrative....it happens here just as it happens anywhere else.
