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.

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

Zimmerman still has a Bounty on his head, courtesy of the New Black Panthers, and NO LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY has gone after that "inciting violence" promotion. Jesse Jackass and Al Sharptoon will NOT be held liable if anything happens to George Zimmerman if he's out on Bail, and they promoted the "outrage" over the events.....Why?

Because they are a "Protected Class" and "Holder's People"....no one wants to admit this crap.

Zimmerman was treated at the scene, then transferred to the police station, where his wounds appear to be less visible in surveillance video.

Especially after we fogged it up and put a big useless cryon across the screen...

Isn’t this the kind of detail that should be released before putting out a bounty on Zimmerman, “dead or alive”, tweeting his address to a few hundred thousand thugs, and claiming that he murdered someone who looks just like former Senator Obama’s “son”? There are liberals who claim that it was wrong to shoot Trayvon if he was “just getting a thrashing” and his life wasn’t actually in danger, but as far as any sane person is concerned, having your head pounded against concrete does put your life in danger and does justify the use of deadly force. With this graphic evidence that Zimmerman was injured and no evidence of any injury to Trayvon other than one bullet hole, the case for self-defense is pretty much complete. It’s time for the race hustlers to invent another cause to rally around.

Watch them SHUT UP realllllllllllll quiet like right now. It will be time for a beer summit at the White House these days, with New Black Panthers on one side (along with Obama), and George on the others. Wouldn't want to be sitting around THAT table.

I think the WHOLE ROTTEN STINKING RACE CARD INDUSTRY OWES A GENERAL NATIONAL APOLOGY TO THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES ON PRIME TIME TV.

The media cover it truthfully? NOT A CHANCE.

CW2 may have been begun by Jim Lehrer demanding violence
to force ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE/DeathCARE upon the population.


The call to violence by PBS was followed by
an eager violent (projecting, too) DNC.

"PRESIDENT OBAMA: And this week, .... we're going to be doing is bringing some of them into the White House and --
JIM LEHRER: To crack heads?"


"To crack heads?" Lehrer asks.
"Oh, I don't know about cracking heads," Obama said, "facilitating a discussion that solves these problems." "


"PBS's Lehrer Badgers Obama from the Left: What About Banks' 'Huge Profits?'
By Matthew Balan | July 21, 2009 - 11:56
"PBS's Jim Lehrer ... urged the executive to "crack heads"
to get his health care plan passed, and inquired if "taxing the wealthy" was an option to fund it.
Lehrer later pressed Mr. Obama on the "huge profits" being made by "big Wall Street banks.""



Obama:
“They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”

Obama to His Followers:
“Get in Their Faces!”

Obama on ACORN Mobs:
“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

Obama to His Mercenary Army:
“Hit Back Twice As Hard”

Obama on the private sector:
“We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

Obama to voters:
Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”

Obama to lib supporters:
“It’s time to Fight for it.”

Obama to Latino supporters:
“Punish your enemies.”

Obama to democrats:
“I’m itching for a fight.”

Capuano (Violent Democrats for Obama):
Once in a while you have got
to get out on the streets
and get a little bloody.

Actually, NO. It's not law enforcement's job to share the details of their investigation with race hustlers. Instead, race baiters should be punished for what they did here and stopped, dead in their tracks, if they ever try this crap again. It's time to make the uncivilized act civilized or be expelled from the civilized society.

And yet Tawana Brawley's best friend will continue to chant "justice for Trayvon" and both the State of Florida *and* the US Department Of Just Us will insist on prosecution.Only a jury with the collective IQ of an OJ jury will convict but finding such a jury won't be hard either for the State or for Attorney Corporal Holder.

Zimmermans hearing is just one hour away. Per WFTV it is likely Zimmerman will get out on bond today.

The Dallas Fox affiliate covered it this morning. Well, they covered the part about the shooter being given a mental evaluation and how "prosecutors aren't certain whether they'll seek the death penalty".

Sounded like the story was being swept under the rug. We'll see.

“just getting a thrashing’

I read somewhere that Zimmerman pulled his gun after he realized Trayvon was going for the gun. I believe it was stuck in Zimmerman’s belt. That’s my recollection.

I have to say that I was taken aback when Corey referred to Trayvon’s family as ‘these lovely people’. I thought she was in their corner she shouldn't have been in either corner. She should have just sought the truth and acted on it.

I absolutely agree. But in this case, Zimmerman needs all the proof he can get. Unfortunately, he was convicted by the race baiters and the media. He should never have been charged. The fact that he was released after it happened speaks volumes.

Perhaps he had a SERPA holster, and thus Trayvon could not get it loose.

Now that we know Zimmerman told the truth, can the MSM cover the British tourist in Florida who was brutally murdered by several Black men; or the 13 year old who was murdered by two Black youth; or the Tennessee couple who were raped, sodomized, and murdered by 7 Black men?

I have heard Juan Williams say more than once that Zimmerman outweighed Trayvon by a hundred pounds.

The interviewer both times rushed on to the next question and didn’t bother to correct. And yes, the interviewer knew better.

And no, I know it sounds too preposterous to be true, but I’m not exaggerating, he did say by a hundred pounds.

Also, Rick Santorum owes a bigtime apology to Zimmerman but I won’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

Looks like the only station in Miami reporting this is WPLG, the ABC outlet. Of course, 2 weeks ago when abc has exclusive video of george at the police station and everyone thought he was lying, every single station, I believe, ran with that video.

The real story here is “why was this photo not released before?” and who has been hanging on to this picture through the whole conflict. I noticed they attributed this photo to no one nor did the article mention where it came from. Why is it coming out now when tensions are dying down. Why wasn’t it around when George Zimmerman was in danger of being killed for a bounty. This photo poses a lot more questions than answers for me.
