EMS tapes show George Zimmerman did not sustain fatal injuries in encounter with Trayvon Martin
New York Daily News ^ | Saturday, March 31, 2012 | Matthew Lysiak and Rich Schapiro

Posted on 03/31/2012 9:07:17 AM PDT by kristinn

SNIP

On Friday, the Daily News obtained EMS documents suggesting Zimmerman, who an ex-colleague said was fired from a security job for being too aggressive, did not sustain serious injuries in the fatal encounter.

Paperwork detailing the EMS response to the shooting scene shows that a call for a second ambulance was canceled.

An audiotape containing the EMS communications, also obtained by The News on Friday, records unidentified workers discussing the scene.

Zimmerman’s condition is mentioned briefly in the 30-minute recording.

“Do we have a second patient?” a man asks.

“That’s affirmative. We have a second patient,” a woman replies. “The second patient is not a gunshot.”

Silly me! I sort of assumed that when Zimmerman walked away. I should have waited for the press to confirm it.

I guess the only way to justify self-defense is to sustain fatal injuries. LOL.

Good grief. If the injuries had been “fatal” Mr. Zimmerman would be dead. Does anyone proofread these things?

If Al Sharpton, the Black Panthers, NBC and the rest of the MSM have their way, George Zimmerman will sustain fatal injuries. As soon as they tweet his current whereabouts.

The New York Daily News has had one of their reporters arrested, Matthew Lysiak, and have contacted the NYPD’s PR arm, DCPI, about the incident. Lysiak also captured film of police throwing and manhandling protesters before he himself was detained.

I suspect the “proofreader” didn’t know the meaning of “fatal,” but had encountered the phrase “fatal injuries” in the past, and just decided that the word belonged where she put it.

An ESL sort of blunder, not understanding the bizarre and humorous implication of the misplaced modifier.

The article says: “Zimmerman, who an ex-colleague said was fired from a security job for being too aggressive, did not sustain serious injuries in the fatal encounter”

I’m glad he didn’t sustain SERIOUS injuries in the FATAL encounter. I didn’t even know Zimmerman was killed. Do these papers use junior reporters?

The truth is this article’s soul purpose was to be able to write that he was fired for being too agressive.

A second thing with that headline. EMS tapes? EMS does not tape it’s patients, that would be a violation of their privacy. EMS does not release the details of a call for the same reason.

Sorry, Zimmerman need not have sustained injuries which were likely to become fatal:

776.013

...a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:

(1)He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony

Seriously, do these "journalists" do any research whatsoever?

trevon said he was gonna kill zimmerman after he punched him in the nose and pounded his skull into the cement. Before zimmerman was fatally injured, he was able to pull his weapon during the fight and fire a round that killed his attacker. Details at 11.

I think the intent of the headline was to undermine Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense by indicating that he did not sustain life-threatening injuries. Pure propaganda and totally irresponsibile.

Some words just sound appropriate to those who are ignorant of their definition. In my line of work, I've been asked numerous times to go interview somebody whose been 'electrocuted.'

Inserted before the discussion of his injuries is the phrase “who was fired from a security job for being over aggressive....”

Perhaps an interesting story in itself, but a descriptive phrase of who Zimmerman is?

Right.

Zimmerman's use of deadly force prevented further such bodily injury, and prevented Martin from continuing his attack.

I'm not sure what you're saying.

I see, he should have waited until he really, really, really thought he was going to die. And then maybe he should have died instead. After all the police were called, they could have protected him after he was dead, right?

This part is almost as bad as the stupid headline...

“A Miami funeral director says Trayvon Martin’s body showed no signs of a violent brawl.

Richard Kurtz said his examination of the slain Florida teen’s corpse revealed no cuts, scratches or bruises, only a gunshot wound to the chest.

Kurtz’s account appears to contradict George Zimmerman’s claims that he shot Trayvon during a life-and-death struggle.”

Do funeral directors do autopsy reports in Floriduh?

All that proves is that Zimmerman wasn't beating up Trayvon, that is why...well...he wasn't all beat up.

Well if Zimmermans injuries were fatal, then he would be dead, would he not?

Perhaps his injuries were fatal, if eventually the radical racist have their way. There are Wanted Dead or Alive posters out there.

[Florida Statutes] 776.013

. . . a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:

(1) He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself . . ..

Yep. Florida law permitted Zimmerman to use the force "to prevent" great bodily harm to himself. Before the "unh uh"s starts: (A) no, Chapter 776 doesn't define "great bodily harm,' but the appropriate legal method for Martin supporters to use before arguing that Zimmerman wasn't subjected to the possibility of it, is first to research Florida law to see if the term has been defined at law by Florida courts; and (B) yes, I know about Section 776.041.

Apart from the stupidity of the headline writer, the point that Zimmerman did not suffer serious injuries is irrelevent. The Florida law, as well as self-defense laws in states that do not have a stand your ground provision, only require that you to have a REASONABLE EXPECTATION of immediate death or grievous bodily harm.

Christian, a University of Tennessee student, and Newsom were on a date Jan. 6, 2007, when her sport utility vehicle was carjacked at gunpoint by several people in Knoxvil The attackers blindfolded and bound the couple and took them to a rundown rental house. Police concluded Newsom was soon taken away, sexually assaulted, shot in the back of the head, set on fire and left beside some railroad tracks. Christian was beaten and repeatedly raped over the next 24 hours. An autopsy said she died of suffocation after she was choked, wrapped in plastic bags and dumped in a trash can. Cobbins' brother, Lemaricus Davidson, 28, of Knoxville, has been identified by investigators as the ringleader in the attack. Davidson, Cobbins' friend George Thomas, 26, and girlfriend Vanessa Coleman, 21, both of Lebanon, all are in jail awaiting trial. Another person, Eric Boyd, is serving a federal prison sentence for being an accessory.
