To What Lengths Did Someone Go to Scapegoat George Zimmerman?
The PJ Tattler ^ | December 5, 2012 | Bryan Preston

Posted on 12/05/2012 6:32:39 AM PST by Uncle Chip

The “new” photo of George Zimmerman raises some very disturbing issues. Take a look at the black and white version of the photo, which the Florida prosecutor gave to the defense as part of the discovery process shortly after his altercation with Trayvon Martin.

...................

The man in the photo above looks somewhat menacing. The misshapen nose suggests a history of brawls, the color having been drained away, taking with it the reds and purples indicating a fresh wound from a very recent attack. The vacant look in his eyes suggests no remorse for the killing of a young man, which the man in the photo had done moments before the photo was taken.

“This man might be a thug.” That’s the nonverbal message of the photo above.

Now, look again at the color photo. This is the unaltered photo, from which the grainy, black and white version was manufactured.

Seen in color, the “thug” who might be, becomes a wounded young man. Shock and fear ring his eyes.... His nose appears to be freshly broken. Instead of being a white ghoul emerging from shadows, he is a wounded man sitting in a car after a life-changing, possibly life-destroying, event has happened. The ghoul has flesh and blood after all. He bleeds.

From that color photo, taken in color at high resolution by law enforcement officers moments after the altercation, someone manufactured the grainy black and white photo and made the decision to hand that version, but not the full color version, over to Zimmerman’s defense. Who did that? Who manufactured that photo? How did they manufacture it? Why did they manufacture it?

If my recollection is anything at all, the press initially labled this as a white on black shooting.

And like so many things in our Lefty dominated country, no one will be identified as the perp, nothing will be done to ensure justice, no investigation will be held and the matter will be swiftly brought to a conclusion. February to December? /sarc

Yep, yep, yep, and yep. Heck, it's already "old news".

Sort of like a run-up to Benghazigate. EVERYTHING about this administration and its sycophants is a LIE except their determination to undo the Republic.

You are 100% correct. The local ABC station here is the one that got everything started. It was a slow news cycle and they went out and interviewed several people on camera.
It turns out the people saw nothing. They only wanted their 15 minutes of camera time.
Then the race pimps picked up on it and the rest is history.
The ABC station is local channel 9 here in Orlando WFTV.

What's the difference between this, the news media stirring up civil unrest prior to a terrorist attack (underwear bomber on plan), and the terrorist attack in Libya where you had ginned up civil unrest prior to a terrorist attack?

For that matter, which terrorist attack since 1993 is different?

Which one of the terrorist attacks wasn't preceded by the left and the MSM ginning up civil unrest?

I didn't get that at all. He just looks shocked, to me. And he sure doesn't look white. It emphasizes his very Hispanic features.

The main difference I see is that in the B&W, you can't see the blood. The man in the color photo looks like the victim of a crime. I would guess that the persecutors didn't want to display as evidence a picture that further undercuts their already legless case.

That's exactly right.

Phony news story ginning up civil unrest prior to a terrorist attack. Only this time the underwear bomber turned out to be an intel agent.

That agent confirmed the terrorist are carrying out the attacks based on the “News”.

That's the reason for the “spontaneous” lie about Libya.

To try and make it appear as if the terrorist are so in tune with the news they can pick up on a news story and carry out an attack in a matter of a few minutes based on what is in the news, instead of planning an attack and then having the news orchestrated for the attack which is what they are actually doing.

Can you spell MISTRIAL? Withholding evidence? Could not the submission of an intentionally altered black and white version of the original photo be construed as evidence tampering? Might the case have been thrown out by now if the true picture had been made public?

There was never a case to begine with.

Zimmerman got Nifonged by a States Attorney looking for her 15 minutes of ame. An attorney even more stupid than Marcia Clark who gave away the OJ case.

I am sure she will one day sit on a Federal Court as Judge.

My take on this is a random shooting by a rent-a-cop that was turned into a white on black attack by the news media in order to sell news papers.

This is a clear cut case of prosecutional misconduct. Were there real justice in Florida, the prosecution would be on trial instead of Mr. Zimmerman.

Who did this, I'll tell you who did this. The SOCIALIST ANTI AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC LEFT infested in our GOVERNMENT, MSM and ACADEMIA did this. These liberal frauds put forth the RACIST RHETORIC. REVENGE AGAINST WHITIE, BLACKS ARE VICTIMS narrative and this is what occurs in the real world. It's about time this crap gets exposed. People prosecuted and put at end to.

You can copy anything into black/white from a color copy on almost any copying machine.

Don’t delude yourself. If you read the initial threads, you will/see that more than a few on this forum played a role in Zimmerman’s legal lynching also. For some unknown reason they have remained silent, but they probably raise again like the vultures anfd hyenas they are.

There is only one way to get the bottom of this! We need Lyndsay Graham to question the prosecution in private!!

No defensive shooting that occurs during a life or death fight is a random shooting!

Yep. These prosecutors can't be this stupid; surely they must know like everyone knows that they have no case at all and no chance of getting a conviction.

All I can think of is that they're trying to make an example out of Zimmerman and force him to twist in the legal wind for as long as they possibly can before they inevitably have to let him go. Hopefully the judge puts an end to this, and soon.

Who did that? Who manufactured that photo? How did they manufacture it? Why did they manufacture it?

Wow, good point.

I still find it amazing that they got the black and white photo from what had to be a 1930s telephoto machine. That one is still running is something.

I thought it came from the tip of a pencil out of a 3rd grade art class.
