ABC News Exclusive: Zimmerman Medical Report Shows Broken Nose, Lacerations After Trayvon
ABC NEWS ^ | 05/15/12 | By MATT GUTMAN and SENI TIENABESO

Posted on 05/15/2012 6:17:25 PM PDT by elhombrelibre

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.

I usually switch channels when the national (propaganda) news comes on, but I happened to see that the lead story would be about "precious Trayvon", so waited to change channels.

ABC's "Exclusive Story" cites the doctor's medical report on Zimmerman's injuries and post-arrest treatment. The existing wounds indicated in the report show conclusively that Zimmerman was being beaten up, but ABC tried desperately to spin it so that Zimmerman remained the "bad guy". I switched away immediately thereafter.

The liberals told us that he could NOT have had a broken nose, because there wasn’t blood in that shot of him going into the police station that night.

The liberals also told us that there was NOT a serious head injury, even though we could see the injury to his head.

I think that the liberals are going to see their case is not the racist, open and shut, cause celebre they had hoped for.

He will be charged with Blasphemy (hate crimes) against the state.

Facts are no longer that important. Look for the stategov and fedgov to stack the jury.

Never happen because he was a juvenile and has nothingr to do with his death. But I'll bet you he had a knife on him.

IIRC, Zimmerman is a small dude....but bulky...Tray was certain he could take him and teach him a lesson and get away with it...all he had to do was scream racist.

Now we need to wait for the gunshot residue report. If it was on both Zimmerman and Martin, then it looks like Martin was the aggressor or at least beating the crap out of Zimmerman.

Not enough for a jury to convict on. Will acquit on grounds of “self-defense”.

yep, every single piece of evidence backs up Zimmermans story.

This is an open and shut case of self defense, the judge should throw this out of court.

All the prosecution has is their claim that Zimmerman profiled Trayvon, and if he hadn’t done that nothing that happened later would have happened. They are going to base their entire case on that argument it looks like.

All the “witnesses” will just be character witnesses that tell of how wonderfull and great Trayvon was.

George Zimmerman Video Shows Little Evidence of a Broken Nose, Doctor Claims

Apr 4th, 2012

But Dr. Vidor Friedman, president of the Florida College of Emergency Physicians, remains unconvinced. “If somebody had been beating his head against concrete I’d think we’d see more obvious scrapes,” Friedman said. He also said he would expect to see bandages on Zimmerman’s head.

More significantly for Friedman was the condition of Zimmerman’s nose.

“All of the ridges in his nose are clearly defined. You would expect significant swelling in the hour or two after a break. There appears to be none. It doesn’t look like his nose was broken or badly broken,” Friedman said.

Angela Whorey will play right into the hands of the black community with her belief that non-blacks 'confronting' a black person with a question is a crime. This is ALL she's got. Distorting the meaning of a word for the sake of winning her case at the expense of an innocent man.

A citizen responds with violence to being 'confronted' with a question by another citizen. Whorey will succeed in convincing America that a non-black person confronting a black person with a question is crime. This is an outrage but she will do it.

You’re right. It’s become an article of faith that poor little Trayvon was deliberately targeted for an unprovoked murder by the brown white man. Such rubbish. Now, if the narrative collides with facts the professional race mongers will call for riots. It’s BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES, only this time it’s not a novel.

So how will this play out?

Whatever the evidence, the jury will know that it is much safer for them personally to convict than to acquit. What juror wants to have his photo and address posted to Twitter to guide the racist hate mob?

If Zimmerman is found not guilty, how long will he live after being released?

At least Zimmerman's widow should have a great case against NBC and the other MSM outlets that framed her husband.

George Zimmerman is innocent. And it doesn’t matter what the outcome of his trial is, the American public is still going to defend itself.

"Stay out of the cities this Summer.

Liberal Democrats have made their point with this Trayvon/Zimmerman incident: If you're white and you're attacked by a black thug, the thug has more friends in high places in our government than you do, so don't attempt to defend yourself. Just run like hell, if you can, but if you can't, just take your ass-whipping and hope he don't decide to kill you. Any attempt to defend yourself could possibly injure or kill the thug and the resulting expenditures for your legal defense will surely bankrupt you.

Yes, we now live in a "Worker's Paradise" that would make Karl Marx proud.

I would think the charges would be dropped if self-defense is accepted. Stand your ground laws should give him immunity from criminal and civil suits if he acted in self defense.

No, they’ll look like the white knights who fought so hard to get justice for po’ lil’ Trayvon, but where defeated by the institutionally racist System. Nice little resume enhancer for when they run for higher office.

They prosecution says Martin was breaking no laws and was not disturbing anyone as he walked back to his father's girlfriend's home.

The prosecution surely loves to construct a strawman and then stomp him into the ground.

As I mentioned several times before, neither GZ nor TM were "breaking any laws" until the first strike. What they did until then was entirely immaterial, unless the prosecution intends to prove [impossible, even if it were true] that GZ scared TM into self-defense and that's why TM was in his right to attack GZ.

"Profiling", whatever that might be, is not a crime. Half of the population of the planet constantly profiles the other half whenever it can :-) The other half profiles them back.

Stalking, if it were to be alleged, requires repeated incidents. Following someone for three minutes is not stalking. Millions of people randomly follow other people every single day on sidewalks, in malls, subways, and airports where channels for pedestrian traffic are defined.

But Sheaffer said there could be another explanation for Martin's knuckle injury. “It could be consistent with Trayvon either trying to get away or defend himself,” Sheaffer said.

Mr. Sheaffer could make money hand over fist as a contortionist. "Yes, sure, when I'm running away from a threat I'm likely to have my knuckles all beaten up." And as I said the guy already lays the foundation for the TM's self-defense argument. Apparently, GZ attacked TM's fists with his face and then tried to damage city property (the curb) with the back of his head. Indeed, that's a common occurrence, isn't it so?

What we have here is a plain vanilla duck that matches every description of a duck in the book. However advocates of prosecution keep looking in shadows, hoping to prove that this obvious (to every reasonable person) duck is actually a Vorlon spaceship. A very small one, perhaps...

I'm sure this doctor is not in exclusive employment of GZ. The doctor would have no reason to lie, especially when such a lie can be proven by another doctor, by an X-ray, by videos and photos taken at the scene, etc. GZ owes him nothing. Why would the doctor go to jail for GZ? Most likely the doctor didn't even know what happened when he treated GZ; and GZ probably just said that he was beaten up.

No reasonable jury will believe that the doctor is biased.

With all of the talk of “murder” and “stalking” of the dead man, the prosecution will have a difficult case to make that it was premeditated murder and not self-defense.

He may have put himself in a situation he could have avoided by just going home and not even volunteering for security patrols.

But Billy Joe Shaver walked on charges after shooting a man in the face outside of a bar.
