ABC News Exclusive: Zimmerman Medical Report Shows Broken Nose, Lacerations
abcnews.go.com ^ | 5-15-2012 | Matt Gutman

Posted on 05/15/2012 3:19:49 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

A medical report compiled by the family physician of accused Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation.

Zimmerman faces a second degree murder charge for the Feb. 26 shooting that left the unarmed 17-year-old high school junior dead. Zimmerman has claimed self defense in what he described as a life and death struggle that Martin initiated by accosting him, punching him in the face, then repeatedly bashing his head into the pavement.

Also today, a trove of documents are being examined by lawyers for both the defense and prosecution as part of discovery in Zimmerman's trial -- including 67 CDs worth of documents, video of Martin on the night of the shooting, his autopsy report and videos of Zimmerman's questioning by police.

Zimmerman's three-page medical report is included in those documents that the defense could use as evidence.

Watch World News with Diane Sawyer for the latest on the Trayvon Martin shooting and the trial of George Zimmerman.

The morning after the shooting, on Feb. 27, Zimmerman sought treatment at the offices of a general physician at a family practice near Sanford, Fla. The doctor notes Zimmerman sought an appointment to get legal clearance to return to work.

Oh, please the little innocent 17 year old was really a gold toothed thug who was looking for a fight during his 10-day suspension from school. Any word if they ever found the rightful owners of the women's jewelry the school found in his bag?

I would say that if anyone here is ever involved in an incident like this, anything from a mugging to defending yourself with your firearm, get medical attention for any injuries so that it’s officially documented by authorities. You never know what fact will help you out when the media is out to crucify non-blacks and conservatives at any cost.

I know this is a question on a minor point...and I might have missed it, but: Did anyone ever find those skittles and iced tea that Trayvon claims he went to buy? They keep referring to them, but I don’t recall anyone actually finding them and holding them as evidence. I have heard that “skittles” is a street slang term for prescription drugs. So, was it really candy he went to get...or was he looking to find some drugs, maybe from a home he was looking to enter or something?

We would be better off if the state of Florida, prosecuted NO ONE, back in March. Let the race-baiters riots occur IN MARCH. Now, the timetable to riots is in the hands of Obama cronies and the MSM. The riots will conveniently lead up to and be timed before the Nov. election is my guess.

"........Feb. 26 shooting that left the unarmed 17-year-old high school junior dead"

That's a lie!

trayvon was armed! He was using his arms to beat the living daylights out of Mr Zimmerman. Who wants to bet that if trayvon had a gun, he would have shot Mr Zimmerman in the back, or held him up.

I think it's time to write a law that requires every single US citizen to bear arms.

He didn’t have to do this. I was delighted when he was elected, and he is certainly better than most of his predecessors.

But you don’t play politics with justice. Especially not when you are only helping the other side.

He should have stayed out of it.

>>Did anyone ever find those skittles and iced tea that Trayvon claims he went to buy?<<

Yes, it was in the affidavit of probable cause. At the bond hearing, it was even stated that he paid for them.

Here is a quote from the bond hearing found here.

DE LA RIONDA: And isn't it a fact to prove that and you have verified that he actually went to that 7-Eleven store and bought some Skittles and a can of tea? Did he not?

GILBREATH: Yes.

DE LA RIONDA: And there's a video of that?

GILBREATH: Correct.

DE LA RIONDA: And he paid for it. He didn't steal or anything. Is that correct?

GILBREATH: Yes.

He also had the concrete walkway that he was trying to beat George Zimmerman’s brains out against. It was essentially a stationary, quite lethal, club. IOW, Martin was armed with a lethal weapon and using it to kilo Zimmerman.

Your right. He probably should have stayed out of it. I believe his decision was based on the race tensions. Time(which is what he bought) tends to lessen the outrage and memories of those in society. As for being a defendant, time is your friend. The longer you can drag things out, the better chances you have a positive outcome.. look at casey. Jose had the case for three years before it went to trial. That was his goal(he’s a friend of mine).

I think you missed the point of the original question, which was whether anyone found the skittles and iced tea.

If they were at the site where the beating took place, then it is inconclusive. However, if, as has been stipulated elsewhere, they had been placed some distance from the place of attack, then that would certainly substantiate George's claim that Martin had been stalking him! Why would Martin have put them down other than an expectation of a physical confrontation.

Frankly, I'm surprised that ABC is owning up to this in light of their past lies and cover ups.

Medical report shows the skin on Trayvon’s knuckles was broken, which contradicts the black funeral director’s claim that there was no indication on TM’s body that he’d been hitting GZ.

According to Zimmerman, when Trayvon was bashing his head against the concrete, Zimmerman tried to get out his cell phone, but when he did that Trayvon saw his gun and tried to grab it. So Trayvon would have had a deadly weapon and presumably would have killed Zimmerman with it if he had managed to gain possession of it.

Has ABC gotten around to admitting that Zimmerman is partly of African ancestry? That detail seems to have been ignored in hopes of keeping the "white vigilante" story line alive.

Since there is NO WAY to keep anyone from getting a weapon that wants one, and at 20 feet or less a blade can be just a deadly as a gun if someone already has intent, a free society should be armed.period.As a matter of fact, most convicts should have their right to self defense restored upon release. If they are still a danger to society, don’t release them. Only those convicted of the most violent crimes should be monitored upon release. Or maybe they should not be released.

I did not intend to state that it had been legally stipulated. On the forums someone stated that the skittles and iced tea were left up against a building behind some bushes; i.e., secreted. I have no idea whether this post represented the truth. I would reiterate that the location of the items being carried by Martin prior to the violence might have a strong bearing on the case.

Oh oh. If the Medical report was in the documents disclosed by the prosecution, the State may be in big trouble. It appears they violated Zimmerman’s rights by charging him even though they had the evidence corroborating Zimmerman’s justification defense. (Assuming the medical report is credible)

That would be the same investigator who never asked for Zimmerman’s medical report and said this...

Gilbreath also said Zimmerman’s claim that Martin was slamming his head against the sidewalk just before he shot the teenager was “not consistent with the evidence we found.” He gave no details.

The funeral director lied...

The funeral director who oversaw slain teenager Trayvon Martin’s burial says the body bore no signs of a fight.

Richard Kurtz says there were no notable marks on Martin’s hands, face or body other than the gunshot wound that killed him. Kurtz says he expected to see some marks if Martin had been in a fight.
