Skip to comments.Video shows Zimmerman after teen's shooting [Not Carrying a Gun in Surveillance Video!]
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.

This throws doubt into his ENTIRE story.
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.
Yeah, and it proves he is not white, but I guess not being black is good enough for Spike and the Militia Bros.
Mere cornermen can stop the bleeding and seal the cuts caused by professional fighters in LESS THAN ONE MINUTE.
NOTE: EMS was on the scene at the shooting.
Yeah, after the cops cuff you they almost NEVER let you keep your gun.
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.
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?
by ever boxing cornermen = by even boxing cornermen
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.
"...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."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.
"Zimmerman... was given first aid by the SFD. While the SFD was attending 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”:
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.
