Photo taken after Trayvon Martin shooting shows bloody George Zimmerman [LIVE THREAD]

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

WFTV just learned Friday morning about a picture of gunman George Zimmerman, taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead.

The picture reportedly shows cuts on the back of Zimmerman's head, with blood trickling down.

Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin on February 26 in a gated Sanford community, claimed he killed Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Martin.

The picture would seem to back up Zimmerman's claim that Martin slammed his head against the sidewalk.

That picture could be part of the evidence shown to the judge in court Friday morning during Zimmerman's bond hearing.

ABC News is breaking more on this story on Good Morning America at 7 a.m. on Channel 9. We'll have more on Central Florida's TV 27 at 7 a.m.

Meanwhile, Trayvon Martin's parents will come face to face for the first time with Zimmerman on Friday.

Zimmerman is due in a Seminole County courtroom for a bond hearing at 9 a.m.

After a week and a half behind bars, Zimmerman may be walking out of jail to await trial on a second-degree murder charge.

The parents of 17-year-old Martin are expected in the courtroom during the bond hearing.

Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara will likely argue to Judge Kenneth Lester that Zimmerman is not a flight risk, pointing to fact that Zimmerman turned himself in immediately when charges were filed.

Judge Lester must decide if Zimmerman will be offered bond.

“Her husband is white so she thought could pass off a white baby as theirs.”

I didn't know husband (sometimes reported as “boyfriend) was white. Was wondering why she didn't try for a black baby. Sick, sick, sick.

Once again the press bends over backwards to set the "narrative", which doesn't necessarily mean the truth.

As Reading, couldn’t help but think that if the police don’t have a picture very similar to the one posted by ABC today, they are negligent and Z has a case against them too.

It appears from the way the witness (John —as in John Doe) gave a discription of the incident that he has some LEO or maybe military police experience. Taking the picture would confirm that experience.

The prosecutor has an AFFIRMATIVE DUTY to disclose information that proves innocense. The ethics rules mandate this. The law mandates this.

If she had such information and she witheld it then she, and her underlings, are the ones in trouble.

Any time the average citizen gets involved in “the system” the cabal of LEOs, judges, lawyers and bail bondsmen ALL get a piece of you whether you are innocent or guilty.

It's big business.

About a year ago one of the arresting cop’s sons was arrested for randomly beating some homeless black guy -— guess who was the citizen who lead the protest seeking he be charged?

George Zimmerman

There you have it. Self Defense. Now can the media take a few minutes to cover the cold blooded murder of the young white mom who was savagely shot 7 times and then run over by a BLACK woman?

If you could provide links and details-- where? when? how? why? we could all spread the news without the benefit of a criminally bent media.

Looks like this man was fighting for his life.
This case is all about trying to reverse the trend of the Castle doctrine being adopted by several states and using the race card to get there.

GZ won't be released on bond til tomorrow.

He'd be well advised to sleep with one eye open and a sharp pencil, etc in his fist tonight.

And if the poor guy lives thru the night, then there's tomorrow and the negro Klan outside.

It'd be good to see an impromptu swarm of armed local patriots show up to offer their escort services to Z and O'Mara.

This is shaping up to be another Tawana Brawley case. The minute I saw Al Sharpton in Sanford, I knew that George Zimmerman was innocent.

Yeah but is it the blood of little 10 year old Trayvon Martin or is it white Hispanic blood?

A friend asked me: "Since we are to refer to Zimmerman as a white Hispanic, should we refer to Obama as a white Negro?"

It now appears that Trayvon was bigger than Zimmerman but even if it were true that Zimmerman outweighed Martin by one hundred pounds that in itself means nothing. If the hundred pound “advantage” is only fat then it is a DISadvantage plus there are other possibilities, those who simply assume that the bigger person automatically has the advantage are playing the fool. I speak from the viewpoint of a male who is six feet and four inches tall and weighed 252 pounds on my bathroom scale as of two hours ago. I am NOT fat, I am muscular and very strong for a man who is about to turn 68. Do I want to take on a furious 17 year old football player who is six foot two, of any weight and physically fit? Not on your life.

Actually Zimmerman was striking the back of his head against concrete to create a spray of concrete fragments which were intended to fly up and hit Martin and disable him so that Zimmerman could pull his gun and murder Martin. Capisce?

You might want to watch those particular ""freepers"" closely.....since most of the people jumping to convict and condemn Zimmerman that I've seen have all been rabid lefties.

Just sayin....

“Zimmerman is GUILTY!” was expected from the usual baiters and haters, but from the alleged freepers it was especially loathsome and vile.
