Ben Crump: 'The lying has already begun'
WKMG Orlando ^ | Updated On: Apr 23 2012 12:21:27 PM EDT | Shaun Chaiyabhat

An attorney for Trayvon Martin's family believes their son's shooter is lying about injuries he sustained the night he killed the unarmed 17-year-old.

"If this is any indication of what's to come, then the lying has already begun," attorney Ben Crump told reporters on Sunday, while promoting a documentary at the Florida Film Festival on another case.

Crump took aim at Zimmerman's defense after it seemed to gain momentum on Friday.

ABC News obtained a picture that appears to support Zimmerman's claim that Martin attacked him before he fired the shot in self-defense. The picture shows Zimmerman's bloody head wounds and was reportedly taken just after the confrontation.

However, Crump quickly discounted the image and anything else Zimmerman claims.

"When you look at those pictures and you see those two little cuts on his head, that is not consistent with your head being pounded into the pavement," said Crump. "Objective evidence, evidence we can see and touch, is more important than whatever George Zimmerman says because we have to remember Trayvon Martin isn't here to tell us his version of what happened."

How about we dribble this jackasses' head on the concrete, and see what "scientific testing" can do to the back of HIS head.

(I guess the broken nose came from walking into a door?)

You're the epicenter of the lies Bennie, and they are all coming home to roost.

My bet is that Zimmerman is going to be able to add you the list of defendants in his epic defamation lawsuit.

The lying began the day after they identified Trayvon Martin’s body.

Well, you CAN'T see any brain matter, maybe he's got a point.

I guess you have to let your skull be caved in before you can consider it an attack. But I wonder if this subliterate moron can explain how Zimmerman got those wounds, no matter how slight he thinks they are. reverse head butts on the fleeing Trayvon?

Any given person could bounce my head off of the sidewalk just one time. Perhaps not even drawing blood. It is called “Assualt and Battery”.
If you do it to me, you are going to get lead poisoning.

For a grated community that had several break-ins why didn’t they install several security cameras with homeowners’ dues.

A black caller to Greg Garrison on WIBC, Indy last week, claimed to be an investigator who had seen thousands of cases.

He stood fast by the claim that the wounds were too high on the head and they they were actually caused by a persistent skin disease on Zs head that got the scabs scratched off.

From that one cel phone pic, he would not even entertain any other possibility.

What happened to that one video in the garage of the copshop, when an officer actually took a couple seconds to look at the wound?”

You know... the part ABC blurred out.

And before anyone jumps to a conclusion: I hadn't seen his photo posted until after I had made my post. I didn't know that Crump was black. I thought he was probably a white-guilt ridden, snivelly little liberal douchebag.

The judge needs to issue a gag order, Crump will try to take the case out of the courtroom. They really need some riots.

The photo is time stamped.
The would is consistent with impact against a curb.

If the clown lawyer wants to assert the wounds are self inflicted to conjure a self-defense motive, the jury will laugh him out of court.

I'm looking forward to the release of the paramedics' report. Now that should provide some solid documentation of Zimmerman's injuries.

A cell phone picture and a cop's recollection can be attacked as evidence. The paramedics' report won't be such an easy target to discredit.

The good news is none of these idjuts will be testifying. Hopefully a medical person who is an expert in head injuries will explain the danger of head injuries and the concussion Z was reported to have.

Media needs to get a few experts on now instead of filling their limited time with this garbage.

Crump's sole objective is to represent Trayvon's family in some kind of suit for a big payday. Right now he can't identify the big pockets he needs for his suit. When Zimmerman is found not guilty, Crump's hopes for a big payday will diminish greatly. So, he's got to try to convict Zimmerman in the streets.

It most be costing a ton to have his entire law firm in Sanford.

Remember Z didn’t know his nose was broken until he got medical help the next day. Probably the X ray showed a broken nose. More concrete evidence.

Ben Crump: 'The lying has already begun'

The lying began when Democrat operatives, desperate to turn attention away from their imploding War on Women meme, found a brief, month old, news blurb about someone named Zimmerman shooting a black yute. It had a name that sounded white, a black yute getting killed by a gun, a gated community, and it took place in Floriduh. The spinning began and a narrative was launched. Facts were manufactured or altered to support the narrative. A bazillion tweets went out to mobilize the twitterheads. Their actions and their assertions quickly became the news and were used to add substance to the threadbare narrative. And then, just like the War on Women, all the inconvenient facts started to come out and erode that narrative until all we are left with is the angry racism, bitter Democrat partisanship, and jockeying for political power and--ka-ching!--some kind of pay-off that started the whole thing.

Why does the family have an attorney anyway? Because it sounds more impressive than "family spokesman"?

Unless the case reaches trial or GZ accepts a plea deal, Crump doesn’t get his cut of whatever TM’s parents win in a civil trial/s. If GZ wins his immunity hearing or the judge grants the motion to dismiss, Crump gets zip.

If he uses “Stand Your Ground” to defend himself there can never be another criminal trial and a civil suit is proscribed.
