Skip to comments.Photo tells much about case against Zimmerman (Worth a look)

To paraphrase President Obama, if I had a son who had been flat on the ground in a vicious fight, the back of his head would look like that of accused murderer George Zimmerman.
Thanks to a photograph broadcast by ABC News showing Zimmermans bloody head wounds, those trying to use Trayvon Martins death to challenge stand your ground self-defense laws had better start exploiting some other tragedy. For the picture demonstrates that Zimmerman was unable to retreat, since he was pinned to the ground taking a beating when he shot Martin. And note that one of the depicted wounds is long and straight, consistent with Zimmermans claim that Martin was pounding his head against an edged curbstone at the time of the fatal shot.
We dont have all the facts, but there are things we do know.
For instance, the police radio tape proves that Zimmerman was describing his actions to the police as he allegedly stalked his victim. Doesnt that undercut the murder charges? What kind of criminal calls 911 to tell the police he is hunting down his intended prey?
On the tape, Zimmerman not only advises he is following Martin, but he also asks for confirmation that a police officer is being dispatched to investigate. The dispatcher replies that Zimmerman doesnt need to follow Martin, to which Zimmerman promptly responds OK and agrees, instead, to rendezvous with the en-route police officer.
Again, what kind of murderer, preparing for the kill, invites the police to interrupt his scheme? Moreover, doesnt this conversation support Zimmermans claim that he had ceased his pursuit prior to the confrontation with Martin?
We also know that, after shooting Martin, Zimmerman waited for the police to arrive and cooperated fully with their investigation, even as emergency medical personnel treated his head wounds. Wouldnt someone who had just committed a heinous hate crime potentially punishable by death or life imprisonment have fled the scene or, at least, requested legal counsel and refused to answer questions?
Zimmerman and Martin fought on the ground, and the fight ended when Zimmerman pulled the trigger. But at Zimmermans bail hearing, a prosecution detective, who had sworn out the arrest warrant, testified that he couldnt say who had started the fight.
If this case goes to trial, the prosecution will need a better answer than that if it hopes to prove Zimmerman was the aggressor. And shouldnt that key issue have been resolved before bringing murder charges against an obviously injured person claiming that he acted in self-defense?
While much evidence remains to be disclosed, what we have learned so far raises serious questions about the strength, rationale, and integrity of the prosecutions case. These questions are all the more troubling given the tsunami of manufactured racist hysteria that clearly influenced the decision to arrest white Hispanic George Zimmerman.

That was amazing - deserves to be it’s own stand alone post... Thanks for sharing.
I saw that and subscribed to his channel. He's a breath of fresh air.
....and that injured puppy under his arm that he saved could not have made it any easier.
For the good of the nation Zimmerman must die! The truth be hanged—to save hundreds of lives and millions in property—nay maybe Billions, Zimmerman must be executed. He must be killed for peace. If he was a decent man he would hang himself rather than have so many deaths linked to his rash act. Its not about Justice or Truth—its about Black-White hate now. Its about perception — terrible White thug, racist bigot, maybe KKK member, stalks and kills 12 year old choir boy as he walks with skittles. After killing the kid, Zimmerman hits his own head in the pavement to simulate injury. That the way almost 90 % of the black community sees it—and they have been told this by their leaders and the news media—even the president. It must be true. So, Zimmerman must die to save the nation. Maybe he could be nailed to a cross.
The real question is whether or not the State of Florida will scr*w this guy to appease a Black mob.
The answer will tell a lot about the future of the United States.
All new information for me.

If not for the Conservative Blogosphere, we would know next to nothing about this case.
