...shows little evidence of a broken nose, the president of the Florida College of Emergency Physicians said today.

ABC sure is working hard to convict Zimmerman.
Whenever I need a diagnosis, I send my doctor a video.
The doctor is getting air time by being on ABC News. ABC put him on because they knew he would give them the story they want.
Anyone could be ABC’s next victim.
Let’s be patient. Sooner or later we’ll see photos taken one foot from his nose and back of head, and we’ll hear what the doctor treating Zimmerman found.
Friedman is a charlatan if he is saying he can tell if a nose is broken by looking at photos of the back of the head-—or for that matter a grainy photo of a face.
Did or did not Zimmerman visit the ER the next day? That visit and diagnosis if it occurred will be more important than some diagnosis/speculation via a video feed.
That assumes that this “doctor” has a degree and has a license to practice. We do know that his sense of professional ethics is severely wanting. Time for some further continuing education “doctor”?
He has a flat style nose. It is harder to see from a video if that type of nose is broken, then say a Roman Nose.
Nuts, I wish I would have known about this doctor yesterday morning. I went to a dentist who, after taking x-rays and performing a hands-on examination declared that I needed a root canal.
Had I known about Friedman, I just could have sent him a cell phone video, he could have diagnosed it from afar as a a piece of broccoli (or whatever) stuck between my molars — and I could have saved a ton of money.
I’ll never make that mistake again!
so now doctors can make a diagnosis from the tv?....this guy should be fired, and his license rescinded for conduct unbecoming a supposed dr....
Wow - a Doc that can make a diagnosis from crappy video... what a guy....
ABC’s giving us the figurative middle finger after getting busted for covering up the head cuts photos.
“We should wait until ABC releases the enhanced Doctors view...”
I’m sure he has x-rays and an ER report that will say if the nose was broken.
Well, If Zimmerman’s nose was hit hard enough, wouldn’t the image of his nose protrude out the back of his head?
Enhance the pixels some more!!
I don’t know about whether his nose was broken, but according to the police report http://www.sanfordfl.gov/investigation/docs/Twin%20Lakes%20Shooting%20Initial%20Report.pdf Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and the back of his head.
this report is all the corroboration he needs.
Otherwise, he has as much credibility as the guy on TV in the lab coat, stethoscope, & name-tag trying to sell me penis enlargement products.
I read the story on my ABCNews iPad app then opened in the safari browser to cut and paste. My original link does not seem to work fully using IE???
I posted the article because the author Matt Gutman seems hell bent on convicting Zimmerman in the court of public opinion. He’s trying to make a name for himself, but we are busting him. FR is great at doing that.
I wonder how many doctors they asked, who said, “.... you can’t tell whether a nose is broken from the outside....” before they found this one, who would go on recorda as saying there was “little evidence”. Possibly dozens.
