Posted on 04/20/2012 6:36:49 AM PDT by Hojczyk
Zimmerman was treated at the scene by paramedics, then cuffed and driven in a police cruiser to the Sanford police station. He was questioned for hours and later released. In police surveillance video obtained last month by ABC News, Zimmerman's wounds are not apparent, and there were no bandages on his head.
Zimmerman was not admitted to a hospital or given stitches the night of the incident.
The person who took the photograph of a bloodied Zimmerman, asking not to be identified, told ABC News exclusively that they did not see the scuffle that night, but did hear it. The person recalled seeing Martin's prostrate body on the wet grass and said the gunpowder burns on Martin's gray hoodie were clearly visible.
The photographer said that after the shooting, Zimmerman asked the photographer to call his wife. When the photographer asked him what to say, Zimmerman blurted out, "Man, just tell her I shot someone."

Zimmerman must have beat that poor innocent Treyvon with the back of his head before he shot him.
I wasn’t zimmerman’s head. Just ask Sharpton.
That's as bad on ABC's part, as NBC editing the audio.
I notice that ABC is now showing photos of the 17 year old Trayvon Martin—a much less sympathetic portrayal of the attacker/victim. I wonder if Obama still thinks Martin looks like he could be his son.
Yet, ABDNC continues to end their reports by saying that if Zimmerman had followed instructions and stopped the chase, the shooting would not have happened.
It won't matter to the race whores.
...but Zimmerman is the one behind bars...
I wonder how far this political trial will go.
All evidence seems to say this was self defense, not second degree murder.
Zimmerman obviously took a hammer to the back of his own head to manufacture evidence that Trayvon was beating the —— out of him.
It is not new evidence. If ABC is telling the truth it was taken 3 minutes after the shooting was recorded on the 911 call.
This is getting uglier by the day. As quick as this disinformation campaign is progressing - I don’t see us far from marshall law prior to the election. For our own good, of course.
“I notice that ABC is now showing photos of the 17 year old Trayvon Martin”
Where have you seen photos from ABC that portray Trayvon as less than the angel baby the rest of the media likes to show? I only see pics of Zimmerman in the aticle.
3 minutes later?? The photographer got the news how??
Tray went after Zimmerman. I have no doubt.
the digital picture has the GPS and time stamp embedded in the picture file.
It looks like Zimmerman was wearing a hat when he was injured.
Inner city blacks often go to hospitals for bad colds - expense is no issue because they're not paying out of their own pocket ... But for people who are not rich beyond words, or have great health insurance or are on 'assistance' it costs a fortune to go to a hospital emergency room... I suspect Zimmerman knew that...
And that data being...?
Uh...because he was _arrested_? and the injury, while serious, did not warrant practical release of a homicide suspect? Can’t be in jail & ER at the same time.
The picture was made by an I-phone but my Blackberry does it too.
The link contains a video that includes pictures of Martin.
And look how long it took for this photo to get out. Disgusting.
At the hearing this morning the “white Hispanic” Zimmerman looked like he was a close relative of Obama, even could have portrayed Obama’s son.
I just smiled at the irony of Obama’s statement.
If you watch the video at ABC they go into how the picture has time date and GPS location tags embedded in the picture. Only if you want to believe ABC because they still parrot other things as fact that only seem as speculation or un true about Zimmerman. remember it is ABC (All Barack Channel)!/s
That witness with 35 years expereince is going to puke his lunch!!
Could be but it would have got knocked off before the wound and I think its from a real good smash on the edge of the walk. The rest is gravity and the photo was taken so recent that he hadn’t even touched it yet. He was still stunned.
He wasn’t arrested at the time. That came later - with all the political pressure.
He drew that blood on his own head using Trayvon’s blood and a red Skillet!
So damn obvious!
Once again we see how little of what we are told or shown is true.
I could make a case it is more likely we live in the Matrix than in the world the MSM is trying to make us believe exists.
They can withhold so much information without raising suspicion they don’t even have to lie outright. It is lies by omission and they are experts at it.
and called the state's investigator to the stand...and nailed him.
The commentator said...the state witness is now absolutely stuck with his testimony.
I tell ya...Perry Mason has returned.
Very early on there was a video of him getting out of a cop car in a police station with his head bloodied. Methinks he wasn’t exactly “free to go” at that point, so regardless of official labels he was, for most practical purposes, under arrest.
Details? Links? Sounds juicy.
He was in police custody, handcuffed and not free to leave; that constitutes “arrest” even thought he wasn’t charged with a crime until later.
I haven't seen this. I'd be interested in any links you might have.
Just found this thread. It answers both our questions.
Thanks; a riveting read. Wish I’d watched it live. Now need to monitor other sites for hints that the commute home may not go well...
I guess he was not arrested, just placed in handcuffs, transported to the police station, and interrogated for several hours. /s
A person can be brought in for questioning without being arrested, right?
It depends. If a person is forcibly restrained, they are under arrest. There is a sort of halfway situation that is known as "being detained". The courts have ruled that police can "detain" a person for a few minutes while they ask them questions. More that about 15 to 20 minutes is considered an arrest.
It does not really matter what the police call it. If a person is forcibly restrained for more than a few minutes, they are under arrest.
If they know they can leave, but voluntarily remain with the police while they are questioned, that is not an arrest.
An arrest requires that a person be read their rights - does that happen if they’re just being detained? Do you know if Zimmerman was read his Miranda rights? By the way Mark - it’s always nice when you take the time to explain things - it’s appreciated.
That is not quite true. If they are arrested, and questioned, and not read their rights, then the evidence gained may be thrown out of court. They would still have been under arrest.
I do not know when or if George Zimmerman was read his Miranda rights. It appears that he fully cooperated with police. If he volunteered the information about the attack and his self defense claims, then Miranda warnings would not apply.
The 'photographer' was a guy with a cell phone camera who lived right there. He heard the fight and came out to see what was going on.
When I first came across this story, and posted it on freerepublic, the story had a photograph with it. I did not post the photograph, but as the story was about a black teenager being shot, I made the assumption that the photograph was that of the black teenager.
I quickly discovered that the photo was that of George Zimmerman. I have know black people who are of lighter complexion than George Zimmerman.
