Posted on 03/29/2012 3:01:46 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

New surveillance video taken the night an unarmed black teen was killed by a Hispanic man who claims self-defense surfaced Wednesday.

The video was taken at police headquarters and shows George Zimmerman, his hands cuffed, exiting a patrol car.

Also on Wednesday, the parents of the teen, Trayvon Martin, said they have faith in authorities investigating the case.

The video does NOT show Zim with a bloody face, and it ALSO fails to show him carrying a GUN.

This throws doubt into his ENTIRE story.

(off sarcasm)

The morons spewing the “Smoking gun!” Crap about this video are IDIOTIC.

Do journalists understand things HAPPEN between violent events and the police interviews? Dumb asses.

The LSM won't let up.
If he isn't arrested and charged, then thanks to the LSM we will have riots everywhere.
The idiots can't let the courts do their job.

Yeah, and it proves he is not white, but I guess not being black is good enough for Spike and the Militia Bros.

Have these media wimps never seen a boxing match?

Mere cornermen can stop the bleeding and seal the cuts caused by professional fighters in LESS THAN ONE MINUTE.

The police report stated Zimmerman had the injuries his attorney claims.

So, by inference, the allegation by CNN is that the original police report is falsified.

a police report is an arbitrary opinion - a guess if you will, sometimes right, sometimes wrong. It is not an investigation conducted in a systematic manner by detectives. so I really don’t think what box an on-scene officer checked has diddly to do with squat and the MSM should know that.

but of course they will use any little thing to keep the story going. People must be distracted from the elections, you see, and the pesky little fact that a still un-vetted president is attempting to run, unvetted, for a second term.

A police report is a description of the scene and events as the officer arrived not an arbitrary opinion. No box was checked. The officer describe the condition he found both parties in. For example, the report never stated Zimmerman was attacked or that Zimmerman shot Martin. It stated the black male had a gunshot wound, Zimmerman had a gun, and Zimmerman had blood on his face, back of his head, and his shirt was wet and stained with grass on the back. No opinion, just the officers observations.

A police report may be an objective opinion, but that opinion is one of an officer who is sworn to tell the truth in the commission of his duties.

That being said, when will the media start calling for the heads/jobs of the officers who so obviously colluded to keep Zimmerman free.

after seeing the video, i’m a tad more skeptical of zim’s story. I know he wsa treated at the scnee by EMS, but there seems to be no scrape wounds, and his nose sure don’t look broke to me. i’ve had broken noses, adn they bleed profusely.

i’m gonna wait until I see a medical report showing that his nose was actually broke. for now aside from the witness stories, i’ve got some doubt.

I agree with you.Zim looks in pretty good shape to me after stating what he just went through.
A broken nose? Why isn’t his nose stuffed with cotton? he is cuffed behing his back but you can’t see any type of gauze or bandages.

"his nose sure don’t look broke to me. i’ve had broken noses, adn they bleed profusely."

UFC fighter Brandon Vera right after fight: "Vera has
been medically suspended because of a broken nose
he received at the hands of Silva"

Some broken noses bleed and some don't. Some nosebleeds from them can be easily stopped by ever boxing cornermen. Some breaks are larger than others. And in any case, how is the surveillance camera view sufficient to determine injuries, and a basis to dispute the police officer's observation at the scene of the shooting?

The article does not have the video so I can’t give a time into it but one of the officers does walk up behind Zimmerman and inspect the back of his head, and I assume an injury there.

Here's what the responding officer wrote in his report:
"...his back appeared wet and was covered in grass, as if he had been laying on the ground. Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and back of his head."

"Zimmerman... was given first aid by the SFD. While the SFD was attending to Zimmerman..."

SPD initial shooting report

The initial report isn't the final determination of facts, but it establishes what the responding officers saw AND that the Fire Dept administered 1st aid to Zimmerman.

But the MSM would rather herd public opinion in the direction of their leftwing bias, based on surveillance video - without referring to the Police or EMS report.

I misspoke with the ‘check the box’
what I was referring to was the descriptive under the “offenses section”:

Homicide-Neglig
Mansl-Unnecessary Killing To
Prevent Unlawful Act

please understand that to a layperson such as myself, it just seems a pretty complicated statute to quote (if it was the street cop that filled in that section), and, the less educated among us have obviously taken the ‘unnecessary killing’ portion of that descriptive as a foundational reason to act out, as if the descriptive were already a verdict. Just found it a little strange, myself - again, speaking strictly as a layperson.

No offense to any coppers intended.

So you think the police report was a lie, Zimmermans’ father lied, and Zimmerman’s attorney lied.

That’s quite an impressive bunch of liars who will be easily found out as soon as the emergency medical tech report is made public.

Plus this video has been taken apart on numerous threads and anyone without bias can see that Z’s head does indeed look as though there is a darker area indicating a wound.
