See, you people aren’t doctors, see?

All us doctors know that when a person gets hit in the head they get what we call a “magnus offa.” That’s Latin, see? Now I can tell by looking at this here video that this racist Zimmerman guy don’t have one of those. See, if he did
I’d be able to see it stickin’ up about 6 inches and comin’ to point. Oh, and it would have little stars and planets swirlin’ around it in a ring like. As for his nose, it’s pretty obvious to me that he ain’t got no broken nose. ‘Cause if he did it’d be real big like baseball and it would pulsate and make a sound like “Bump-bump. Bump-bump. Bump-bump.” like that, see? And don’t even get me started on what he’d look like if somebody dropped an anvil on his head.

MSM is so stupid. The issue is much larger then the death of a young person and George Zimmerman's protecting himself, it may even be a national issue, but drugs not guns.

Maybe ABC has a medical drug problem....See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanford_Police_Department_(Florida)
Local police didn't make the CVS connection, feds did. Who in the community was earning their living by buying and selling....No local arrests made.

OTOH: IMO, as I said this is not about Zimmerman, it's about the officer who headed this investigation. According to one article he is the same officer who headed the investigation into the assault of a homeless black man by Justin COllinson, who's father is a police Lt.

Ironically according to a letter written by a family member of Zimmerman, it was Zimmerman who helped to organize the black community to insist that the young man be arrested. (They had a video showing the attack)....There was a similar incident (involving death) involving two police relatives before that.....SO...Police in the community do not have the trust of people in the community.

Something has been stinking in Sanford for some time, It is a shame that Zimmerman has been painted as the bad guy. He was trying to make a positive difference.

"Kobe Bryant suffered a broken nose in the NBA all star game. Very little (if any) blood. No deformity of the nose. The only clue was is expression of pain at the time of injury and the next few games he wore a protective mask."

This would confirm my speculation that there are hairline nose fractures that have different characteristics than totally smashed noses - which is what I usually encountered in the boxing ring. (gave more than I got though)

You’re right on target. Combine that with what I posted above...Fits right into “don’t let a crisis (in this case weakness) go to waste.

Considering Gutman tweeted that “Zimmerman shot Martin because Martin was black” back on March 13 I think that anything he has to say is of limited value.

“FR is great at doing that.”

Yep, if it is not done here, it is doubtful they will be exposed. There are a few other places on the web with the exposure to get it done.

Gutman and his network needs to be target of a lawsuit. That would also apply to other who a stirring the pot. OTOH Stanford seems to have some major problems. Drugs, a police force that failed to act when members whose family members are out of line. Sooner or later crisis would happen.

Unfortunately Zimmerman seems to be the scapegoat they are targeting rather than dealing with the actual problems. They media is enabling them to continue not dealing with their issues by targeting Z instead of looking at the "BIG" picture.

***Did or did not Zimmerman visit the ER the next day?***

If Zimmerman had a broken nose, the area around the break should show heavy bruising the next day, almost like black eyes.

Read two different accounts that said ZImmerman himself didn't know his nose was broken until the DR told him it was the next day. He apparently didn't seek more medical help until the next day relying on the EMT for initial first aid. He was being interrogated at SPD well into the night.

Years ago when involved in a car accident the EMTs told me to see my Dr the next day, that immediate medical (life saving) attention was not needed. I had a broken rib that needed an X-ray to diagnose. (Our X-ray department in the local hospital was not available during the night hours.) Woke up the next day feeling I'd been hit by a Mack Truck instead of a VW bug.

His medical evaluations would be consistent to my experience for what it's worth.

Maybe, if Zimmerman did not get his nose hit, he had no blood from Martin on his shirt, he had no head wound, and he never screamed for help, maybe he did not shoot Martin.

There were a few Republican’s he contributed to. Did not do the research to determine if they were RINO’s. Know that at least 1 was.

Thanks for the info.

Physician "Expert Witnesses" are common in the medical field and their sole purpose is to support the litigant's claim of malpractice.

My brother-in-law, who is an Oncologist, was approached by Jeffrey Feiger's law firm back in the mid '90's to work for them as their "expert witness" but he turned them down knowing full well that he would have to compromise his vast medical knowledge just to win a case for Feiger.

Instead, he does accept invitations to testify on behalf of defendants........

So how many physicians were approached for their opinion before they found one to give them the answer they were looking for?

Why have ER Docs and an Emergency Department if you can diagnose via video?

No doctor worth a damn would try to diagnose someone on a video!

That is beyond STUPID!

@jtLOL @ABC @DailyCaller @YahooCutline actually our reporting was correct — always said the vid shows no sign of blood or trauma on GZ

@Reuters Craig Sonner told @ABC last week that if charged he would personally drive Zimmerman to Sanford PD. More on @ABCWorldNews

Trayvon Martin police report reveals Zimmerman was ‘bleeding from the nose and back of head’

-snip-

"While I was in such close contact with Zimmerman, I could observe that his back appeared to be wet and was covered in grass, as if he had been laying on his back on the ground. Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and back of his head."
