Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin Killing: George Zimmerman's Attorney and Friend Speak Out
Posted on 03/25/2012 7:31:25 PM PDT by Outlaw Woman
The attorney counseling George Zimmerman, who shot unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin as he was walking home from the store with a bag of Skittles, says if charges are filed, Zimmerman will argue that he acted in self-defense and that Florida's stand-your-ground law applies.
Attorney Craig Sonner said the public is only hearing part of the story, and when all the facts come out, it will be clear that Zimmerman acted in self defense. A grand jury is scheduled to begin hearing the case April 10.
"George Zimmerman suffered a broken nose, and had an injury to the back of his head, he was attacked by Trayvon Martin on that evening," Sonner said. "This was a case of self defense."
When asked why Zimmerman...

In before the “Evil Zimmerman gunned down an innocent child” idiots...
Does anyone have photos of George showing his broken nose and head injuries? The only reason I ask is because for over a week there was NOTHING said about any such thing, and then suddenly those claims arose.

Nope, no bias there. And if you click on the link (don’t) it takes you to that sweet innocent boy in skiing cap no less and the evil mugshot of the alleged murderer
Almost comical the depths the SRM goes to cover for PC
Yeah. You’re the first name caller on this thread. How proud you must be!
I think the cops said he required no medical attention. If it is not in a paramedic report it is bull.
The ONLY picture they show of the white Zimmerman are from 2005. Nothing recent, not unexpected since he’s in hiding now that there is a bounty on his head from New Black Panthers.
And was he treated at a hospital, there would be medical records unless Obama’s goons got them already.
And did the police take any mugshots even though he was not arrested?
The grand jury is gonna have a lot of questions.
Also, the ONLY pictures of Treyvon are a few years old, too.
I think it was just buried. This whole thing is a set up (imo). But to answer your question, I have a copy (redacted) of the police report that was written by the responding officer that nite. He didn’t state that his nose ‘was broken’ but instead said it was bleeding and he wrote about seeing blood on the back of his head. He also wrote that there was grass on his back as well as his back being wet.
If anyone has the photos, it will be the police. They handcuffed him and took him to the station for an interview. The police would have taken the photos as part of their investigation.
Here is the other side:

Trayvon is such a sweet and completely INNOCENT little boy... cause his momma said so!!!
I’m still confused why anyone thinks the existence/nature Zimmerman’s injuries are relevant to the legal determination in this matter. Based on everything known to this point, the altercation happened after Zimmerman confronted/tried to detain Martin, and after he chased him down after Martin tried to run. At that point, in my professional legal opinion (but nB I am not a Florida lawyer) if Martin had beaten Zimmerman unconscious, or even to death, he would have been within HIS self-defense rights (it’s what I’ve trained MY son to do if he was accosted by a stranger on dark street, but then he’s a 250lb starting nose tackle on his HS team)
Conversely however, the most generous legal interpretation of Zimmerman’s actions would still support a conviction for “mutual affray” You can’t gain the legal right to kill someone in self defense if you are the one who starts the violence.
Zimmerman isn’t someone we should be defending, he’s going to seriously hurt the concealed constitutional carry cause in this country, you just watch (and FL may well repeal “stand your ground” because of this).
By all means let’s point out the liberal’s hypocrisy and over-reaction in this case, but let’s try very hard not to in any way make Zimmerman out to be a better person than he is in the process
For those Trayvon defenders where is your outrage of the killings that go on every day? Your pathetic.
Zimmerman is as white as Obama.
This is a racist black vs law abiding hispanic showdown.
Actually, he was treated on the scene by paramedics and from what I understand refused transportation to the hospital. At that time, he was taken to the police station, questioned, gave a statement, had his pistol and clothing confiscated and then released.
Based on eye-witness testimony and physical evidence that collobarated Zimmerman’s testimony, he was released. This was known days after the incident, but did not fit the narrative so it was not widely reported.
