Zimmerman Medical Report Shows Broken Nose, Lacerations After Trayvon Martin Shooting
ABC News ^ | 5/16/12 | Matt Gutman

Posted on 05/16/2012 4:12:42 AM PDT by notsofastmyfriend

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.

Even more so the autopsy report that Martin’s knuckles were cut and bruised. If this was available to Angela Corey, her career here in Jax is done. Just another establsihment politician will bite the dust. The worry is that any credible sounding Democrat could be considered to take that seat away from Republicans. Not a good sign for Jacksonville.

‘Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman’

Murderer? When was he convicted of murder?

For anyone who listened to the audio presentation to the end, I believe the reporter misspoke when he said that the law would not apply if Zimmerman provoked an attack. I recommend this article in full analyzing the Florida stand your ground and self-defense laws but here is a relevant part:

Finally, Florida law guaranteeing self-defense rights express excludes anyone who “Initially provokes the use of force against himself or herself.” Fla. Stats. 776.041. As is typical in other states, the provoker can only regain self-defense rights if:

(2)(a) Such force is so great that the person reasonably believes that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and that he or she has exhausted every reasonable means to escape such danger other than the use of force which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to the assailant; or (b) In good faith, the person withdraws from physical contact with the assailant and indicates clearly to the assailant that he or she desires to withdraw and terminate the use of force, but the assailant continues or resumes the use of force.

The only way that this statute would be relevant would be if Zimmerman initially attacked Martin, and then withdrew. Zimmerman has made no such claim, nor does the M narrative.

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/politics/florida%E2%80%99s-self-defense-laws

There is absolutely no evidence anywhere in the public record that Zimmerman "provoked" an attack. Even if he did, his injuries confirm his account that he was on his back being savagely beaten and therefore in reasonable apprehension of grave bodily harm with no possibility of retreat and thus affording him the right to use deadly force in self-defense.

How does a prosecutor prove a case of second degree murder when it’s shown the defendant was beaten to a pulp before he resorted to defending himself?

Now it’s easy to comprehend why the police didn’t charge Zimmerman right after the incident.

Remember the huge national story that the family undertaker said Trayvon’s knuckles had no bruises?

Yet we now see that was at best more misinformation.

And they charged Z with 2nd degree murder under these facts???

Caucasians and half Caucasians are required to accept a broken nose and multiple lacerations when said injuries are administered by young African American honor roll students.

The only time a Caucasian is entitled to defend himself is after he is murdered........

Overheard this on the radio this morning on a black radio station. The black radio host insisted that Zimmerman's cuts, bruises and black eyes may have existed BEFORE Zimmerman had ANY contact with Martin.

It's pretty disgusting to see such a response to the facts of this case.

Remember, this all started Because Zimmerman was trying to keep tabs on unknowned persons during a crime wave in his neighborhood.

It could literally have been anyone in those shoes. Zimmerman was attacked because he offended Martin and not. Ecause Martin feared for his life.

That’s the new standard. We saw it with the Jena 6. Racial offense, even if it’s sleight or assumed, is now justification for felony assault.

Well I don't know much, but it seems to me martin's actions against Zimmerman are exactly why we're allowed to carry weapons in the first place. Especially while watching out for potential criminal activity.

It's called self defense.

“There is absolutely no evidence anywhere in the public record that Zimmerman “provoked” an attack.”

I was listening to attorney Crump yesterday who created the PR to construct the racial storyline.Apparently they are going to try to counter the Zimmerman medical report with a new narrative that Zimmerman provoked Martin to attack first because Martin was in fear of his life because Zimmerman had a gun.Crump actually said Martin was “standing his ground” against a man with a gun.Of course, it is nonsense but it is ironic that those marching vs stand your ground law apparently are more than happy to use it for their own purposes

That's why I've been saying the media narrative is a load of crap since day one.

Only a truther level idiot could believe the cops would give up a murder conviction for anything. as worthless as "racism."

Well, that’s what happens when you vote for Republicans as a “party”. Sometimes you might be better off with a non-republican. If this gal is DEAD WRONG, and it sounds like she is, then she should get tossed ... if a DEM gets the job he may actually be better by not making such a mistake! Doesn’t sound like she’s doing any favors for JAX ... also, if she does get replaced by a DEM ... who’s fault is that. Put that on her record (and the Republicans) too.

But...but, don't you know that the Martin's lawyer said the knuckles just prove that Trayvon was in a fight for his life. I tend to agree - once he attacked George, and then tried to get the gun, it became a life and death battle. The good guy won.

I’m not certain that this applies in Florida courts, but in my state, if a prosecutor charges an individual with a crime and the judge instructs the jury that they can find that person guilty of a lessor crime, they can do so.

I felt from the beginning that the prosecutor set the bar high to ensure that a jury would find Mr. Zimmerman guilty, if not of second degree homicide, at least a lessor offense.

Having spent my career in law enforcement, I was adamant that a person be charged with the appropriate crime commensurate with his actions, nothing more nothing less. In Mr. Zimmerman’s case, from the evidence I have heard and seen, the issue should have been resolved by a thorough, competent investigation, period. I see jury nullification/fear of riots in Mr. Zimmerman’s case, I fear.

Those of us who followed the known facts of the case knew that all along. But knowing that he told the truth will probably be little consolation to poor Zimmerman as he sits in either a Florida or a Federal prison.

In other words they’re trying to base their prosecution on something that nobody saw.

What limited evidence there is seems to show that Zimmerman never made contact with Martin until just before Martin attacked him, and that he never displayed or brandished his weapon until he used it in self defense.

With any semi-rational jury, that just won’t fly.

Here is praying for a semi-rational jury and a judge that isn’t outrageously biased.

To an extent, I agree with you. Well hell, I agree with you all the way.If the 2012 election turns out like the 2008 election, we will soon find out what we are made of.

While I don't like obama, in fact, I hate the sob and despise beyond words those who voted for him, obama does not frightemn me. What frightens, actually scares the hell out of me is a Nation where the majority of those that vote prefers individuals such as him to lead them. Probably no later than december 1, 2012 we will know a lot both about the Nation and ourselves. We may not like it, but, we will know it.

Apparently they are going to try to counter the Zimmerman medical report with a new narrative that Zimmerman provoked Martin to attack first because Martin was in fear of his life because Zimmerman had a gun.Crump actually said Martin was “standing his ground” against a man with a gun.

Not privy to the presentation by attorney Crump yesterday I can only surmise that any "provoking" alleged was a pure invention. It could be that they intended the words to be literally true, that the mere possession of a gun is a "provocation" justifying an assault by Martin in which case the mere exercise of Second Amendment rights by Zimmerman somehow become distorted into a provocation.

Just as the dispatcher's adjuration that "we don't need you to do that" became a mandatory directive of the police the disobedience of which was itself a crime, or a provocation, or evidence of guilt of some kind.

As far as I know the public record remains absolutely bereft of any evidence of wrongdoing by Zimmerman whatsoever. Surmise and speculation are simply not evidence.

To the contrary, every bit of evidence placed before the public so far confirms zero Zimmerman's version and tends to exonerate him.

They have changed the wording. Zimmerman went from “accused murderer” (which is technically correct”) to “shooter”. “Shooter” is also factually correct, but why is ABC playing around with the wording? My guess is that the word “accused” sounded too much like Zimmerman could possibly be not guilty of murder.
