Trayvon Martin killer George Zimmerman has bloody lip in new photo of fateful night

Blood runs down George Zimmerman’s lip in a newly released photo taken the night he gunned down Trayvon Martin.



The neighborhood watchman’s legal team released the picture Monday, in a move that could draw renewed attention to Zimmerman’s claims that he shot the unarmed, black 17-year-old in self-defense.



Zimmerman, 29, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the fatal Feb. 26 shooting of Martin in his gated community in Sanford, Fla.



He claims he pulled out his gun after the teenager attacked him and threatened to kill him.

Attempted murder survivor, George Zimmerman, has an obviously broken nose.

Helluva broken nose, too. I’d bet he sported matching ‘shiners’ within hours.

Wow, imagine how poor poor Trayvon’s fists must have looked.

“Trayvon Martin killer”

“...gunned down Trayvon Martin...”

Hmmm... I wonder where the sympathies of the author lie.

The States Attorney who is prosecuting this case should be held personally responsible for this atrocity.

She should serve jail time for bringing this case to court.

This case is about cowardice of a public servant when faced with race baiting hustlers.

I have stopped giving to charities because of the effect of obama’s policies on my bank account but I might have to make an exception for Zimmerman’s defense fund.

The mediawhores’s “ ...evil-racist-white-redneck-murders-an-innocent-defenseless-black-child-in-cold-blood..” narrative collapsed like a house of cards. That’s why you don’t hear about it anymore. If there was a shred of truth to it, the mediawhores’s and the race-baiting Axis of Obama-Sharpton-JJackson would be giving this the 24/7 Rodney King treatment. You know, the kind of non stop saturation coverage George Bush would receive if he took a $4-million taxpayer funded vacation while unemployment was over 8%.

The prosecutor has been hiding this photo from the public for 7 months.

The same prosecutor claimed to Judge Nelson 6 weeks ago in open court that he had seen no evidence of a broken nose.

The same prosecutor concealed the actual age of his star witness for 7 months to carry on the charade that she was actually a minor.

The same prosecutor will get his lunch handed to him in court on Dec 11th when he has to answer this motion:

I slummed over to the DUmp for grins this morning, (I took an acid bath to clean up before returning to FR though), and they already had tagged this photo as pure B/S and or a photoshop job. Those idiots are 100% off the rails over that punk thug kid getting it. It is/was MURDER pure and simple according to the DUmmies. I call it outstanding self defense shooting by Zimmy!!

Holy cow! If this pic would have been released when everyone was screaming for Zimmerman’s head-—eh, what am I thinking? They would have never allowed it.

Bloody lip? How about a broken nose? *Sheeesh* The MSM makes me sick.

No kidding. “Bloody lip” is just a wee bit of journoweasel understatement. More like “lips covered with blood from his broken nose”.

Isn't the prosecutor a woman? Or was she just the person who decided to pursue the case and someone else is the prosecutor?

The prosecutor could have a taped message from Trayvon to Dee Dee along the lines of "I'm going to go find that fat wetback who was watching me and kill him" and he/she would go ahead with the prosecution, and try to keep the defense from getting that evidence.

After the O.J. trial and the Scooter Libby trial, I don't have a lot of faith in the criminal justice system. The State of Florida probably deems preventing rioting (if Zimmerman goes free) more important than some guy getting a fair trial.

Bernie De La Rosa works for Special Prosecutor Angela Corey and is her lead prosecutor in this case.

The threat of rioting is a mere ruse. Anyone who is afraid of that needs to buy themselves a package of diapers.

That looks obvious to me, but for some reason it is not mentioned in the article. Just an honest mistake, I'm sure.

However, the article does have a charming photo of the 12 year old choir boy that the Racist White Hispanic murdered for his Skittles.

I very much hope Zimmerman wins the lawsuit lottery against the MSM outlets that lied about him in their reckless pursuit of false "social justice." I also very much hope that he lives to spend his winnings.

"gunned down ... Trayvon Martin"

Ah, Trayvon was on top of George Zimmerman, in the process of beating the crud out of him.

The first (or second, if you count BJ Clinton) black President has presided over the re-racialization of America. What's going to happen when young whites figure out that "Civil Rights" was a con job to turn them into slaves for "brown America"? If you expect a peaceful acceptance of this, you're dreaming.

Thank you Lord & Savior and the Democrat Party.

Angela Corey better hide her assets ASAP or George is going to own everything she has. Thank you GOP Governor Scott and GOP State Attorney General Pam Biondi for appointing Angela Corey and contributing to this farce.

Busted, Fotoforensics says George's lippy is photoshopped, and it's a very new photo (altered 3 December)

His lip does not look busted to me.

His nose is clearly broken and is bleeding onto his lip.

Futhermore, I do not care what a website on the internet says, it’s a simple matter of having the person who took the photo testify to the validity of said photo, bird boy.

. . . which is ridiculous, because the prosecution produced a grainy, black and white photocopy of the color photo months ago.

Anyone who has ever seen a photocopy of a photo knows you lose detail, even if you use a 'grayscale' setting on the copier. The old, B&W photo and the new, color photo are identical. You simply can see more detail in the photo than in the photocopy.

Well of course it is ridiculous but those ignorant idiots over at the DUmp are to stupid and blind with hate for Zimmy to understand anything. Travon Martin was just a punk thug, like his tattooed rapper ‘role’ models. Good riddance...

I think most jurors would also see as obvious the reason the prosecutors released the grainy indestinct copy instead of the original.
