CBS News) Police surveillance video that appears to conflict with a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer's account of a confrontation with the teenager he eventually gunned down, Trayvon Martin, was called "the icing on the cake" by the Martin family's attorney on "CBS This Morning" Thursday.
Attorney Ben Crump told Erica Hill and Charlie Rose that the video refutes George Zimmerman's claims of shooting Martin in self-defense. The video, obtained by ABC News, shows Zimmerman, without any obvious injuries, being led into police headquarters in Sanford, Fla., after the shooting. Zimmerman's father and lawyer have said Martin attacked Zimmerman in his gated community, breaking his nose with a punch to the face and slamming the back of his head against the sidewalk.
"Thank God for surveillance video," said Crump, "because obviously there was a conspiracy to cover up the truth and sweep Trayvon Martin's death under the rug, and as (Martin's mother) Sybrina Fulton said yesterday upon seeing this video, 'This is the icing on the cake.'"

I read some where on FR (yesterday? and another day?) I think 2 places (yeah, really helpful) that Martin’s father first called two Sheriff’s lines to see if his son had been picked up, and then called to file a missing person report.
Isn’t she the one that switched her story? She sounds like an attention whore that will say what ever gives her, her 15 minutes.
Probably she was “contacted” by racist attorney/Sharpton etc representatives and given talking points. Maybe money. It’s not merely for attention.
IIRC, Trayvon's father was not home, he was out with his 'fiancee'.
What they aren’t reporting is Zimmerman’s wounds were attended to by the Emt’s before they transported him to the station. Common sense just escapes these people because they simply cannot accept the truths being revealed now. ...and they dont want to.
Unfortunately this behavior and mindset is simply showing what has become of the black community as a whole. Doesn’t appear anythings changed despite the changes and they remain in the victim mode....right where the democrates want them.
Thanks for that clarification. Once burned twice shy. I’m starting to get wary about posting—and reading—false info in this case. However, your cite looks legitimate.
How could any mother say such a thing? How???
I think I need to let it go at that. I’m starting to have very negative feelings about this woman, and she did lose her son after all. I will say a prayer for her and all concerned, and let it go at that.
And when 160 pounds of lean muscle (from the shirtless photos) gets into a fight with 200 pounds of overweight, out of shape, desk jockey, the athletic teen wins unless the desk jocky has a weapon.
Or just told "If that racist gets off because of YOUR testimony, there will be a lot of people blaming YOU for it".
Why would they put Zimmerman in police car & there treat him?
Wouldn’t they treat him in the ambulance where they would have stuff to clean and bandage any wounds?
Just wondering...because I don’t know.
