Skip to comments.Martin family lawyer: Video "icing on the cake" ("...that police report is a fabrication.")

CBS News) Police surveillance video that appears to conflict with a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer's account of a confrontation with the teenager he eventually gunned down, Trayvon Martin, was called "the icing on the cake" by the Martin family's attorney on "CBS This Morning" Thursday.
Attorney Ben Crump told Erica Hill and Charlie Rose that the video refutes George Zimmerman's claims of shooting Martin in self-defense. The video, obtained by ABC News, shows Zimmerman, without any obvious injuries, being led into police headquarters in Sanford, Fla., after the shooting. Zimmerman's father and lawyer have said Martin attacked Zimmerman in his gated community, breaking his nose with a punch to the face and slamming the back of his head against the sidewalk.
"Thank God for surveillance video," said Crump, "because obviously there was a conspiracy to cover up the truth and sweep Trayvon Martin's death under the rug, and as (Martin's mother) Sybrina Fulton said yesterday upon seeing this video, 'This is the icing on the cake.'"

Wasn’t he treated and cleaned up by emergency medical personnel before this video was taken?
Candy necklaces, Altoids tins, M&M’s, Skittles, Tootsie Rolls are used to conceal Ecstasy tablets.
do the police have the Skittles wrapper?
CBS,ABC ant tne rest of the useless media have thrown gasoline on the fire they want a race war.
It’s now officially a conspiracy. No matter of what facts emerge, the fix is in.
Yes and im sure EMTs will testify to injuries and he went to the hospital the next day and had broken nose which im sure is documented.
So sick of these race hustlers and lynch mobs.
Stop confusing the narrative with facts and evidence! Four legs good! Two legs bad!
Exactly. Same ole’ bullshit
Now there you go interjecting facts into this...we can't have that.
How long after the incident did he arrive at the police station?
But their semi-literate attorney says it's the "troof"
Yes he was. The police report states he received first aid at the scene. What is one of the first steps in first aid? Stop any bleeding and then clean up the wound.
Oh where is the autopsy report? I’d like to read it? Link please?
I have seen the video. It is also interesting that George Zimmerman appears to weigh much less than the reported 250 pounds. He is reported to be about 5’8’ to 5’9” tall. In the video, with him at that height, I would estimate that he weighs less than 200 pounds.
He does appear much more fit than in the earlier pictures, though.
Who knows, but his injuries by police and EMTs is surely documented as well as the medical report he had a broken nose.
I still believe Zippo is going to be forced off the ticket and that's when the real fun starts.
This video plus the chance that he may know some of these cops from all the 911 calls he has made is not good for his already bogus defense.
That head wound is not visible on the ‘video’.
Won’t be much of a war.
Especially since they comprise only 13% of the population, and that’s even counting children, babies and elderly............
Facts don't matter.
If some African Americans did not have the victim card to play, they would have to get real jobs, and for sure, Rev Al would be out of work.
From Barry on down, ‘it’s not my fault’, ‘someone else made me do it’, ‘someone else DID it’, even tho video and eyewitness accounts prove the contrary, and my personal favorite ‘it’s raaacissst’.
They never learn from their past mistakes, either, just like Barry. Tawana Brawley, Duke LaCrosse Team, and now this fiasco.
More video images/screen caps here:
EMS report is critical and the state is sitting on it and released the video instead
I always pegged the Daily Caller as a modern day RINO rag. But they are doing some good work on this case.
Sure he knows the cops and the EMTs, the the hospital staff that treated his broken nose.
All a big conspiracy.
God, I feel so bad for blacks in this country raised to be perpetual victims while other minority groups come to the USA and pass them educationally and economically.
Must be a bitch, huh?
If the ‘blacks’ continue to get up in arms and continue this threatening behavior as we go into the election, I don’t see how it can help Obama. Especially with the AG protected New Black Panthers..... If we are not protected from this ranting, looting, and hate.......America will not think favorably of a ‘black’ president.
No drug tests of either party have been made public to the best of my knowledge
Trayvon’s death was the cake and the video is the icing.
Well that’s what it sounds like the atty is saying. Sick, but what coming out of that side of this incident is not sick?
"IT'S ON! RACE WAR! RACE WAR! RACE WAR'S ON EVERYBODY! IT'S GOING DOWN....SH@T IS GOING DOWN!"
Thank you Sherlock Holmes....you've already solved the case without leaving your computer or examining any evidence and have declared Zimmerman guilty.
Yes but all evidence will be handed over to the defense...it HAS to be by law.
And the medical report by the hospital about treating Zimmerman’s broken nose will be entered into evidence too.
I guess the fix is in with the hospital as well.
Exactly. Obama’s little buddies will cost him the elections with this anti white race hustling violent lynch mob crap.
ok now this is something the media has been hiding for some reason............Zimmerman’s dad is a judge..............
We rode on the winds of the rising storm,
We ran to the sounds of the thunder.
We danced among the lightning bolts,
and tore the world asunder.
"Long hot summer..." and all that. This is shaping up to the be the worst political silly season of my Generation.
Keep us all in your prayers.
It was mentioned on another thread that drug parlance (slang) is:
SKITTLES = Ecstasy.
ARIZONA TEA = PCP laced joints of pot.
(now back to the claim by the parents)
Just think. If Trayvon had not been shot, he would be the only ‘gangsta’ that ate real skittles and drank tea.
Perhaps that fact was embarrassing enough that his death should be considered a suicide.
While the EMTs weren’t looking he probably picked upa hammer and hit himself in the nose. ha ha ha.
Has it been confirmed that Trayvon’s body lay in the morgue three days unclaimed? If so, have the parents, the attys, or FR’s Trayvon-Truth-Squad addressed this issue? It seems rather seminal to the nature of the kid and his family. Iow, either he made a habit of disappearing w’out calling in to say where he was, or else his parents are purely reprehensible for not taking aggressive action in trying to locate him.
What am I missing?
Yes the medtechs wiped the blood from his boo-boos and kissed them better.
looks like a knot on head to me and on his face i see a big red spot
This is just lawyers doing what they are paid to do.
Not only that, but the officer on scene's statement says that there were cuts and bruises and blood.
I note that the 'video' capture seems 'intentionally' blurry.
Not saying that a 'loyal' party member would use photoshop to 'enhance' or 'degrade' a photo but.... well, yes I am saying it.
It's not like they have never done it.
Even so, looks like a cut on the back of his head, and his head seems mis-shapen , as if he has a large contusion to one side.
No one is taking this seriously.
It benefits the GOP greatly when some moron Congressman dons a freaking HOOD on the floor of Congress.
It benefits the GOP greatly when Obama ONCE AGAIN shows his racist upbringing.
Let these idiots throw bones in the air and scream at the monolith....they will be out of power very soon....
No. It's been confirmed that Travon's father called the police the next day (to report missing son), and learned about the incident later that day.
