ABC News Reports Medical Records Support George Zimmermanís Account

When the tragic story of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin consumed the nation over the past few months, a number of questions were raised about racism, vigilantism, and self defense laws. However, the most important question was always the first one; what exactly happened that fateful night? The shooter, George Zimmerman, has always claimed that he fired his gun in self defense, something many found hard to believe considering the young boy he killed was unarmed. However, tonight, ABC World News broke information about the injuries Zimmerman received that may shed more light on just how that night went down.

ABC, who were also first to break the bloodied images of Zimmerman’s head that disputed video seemingly showing him unharmed, have now obtained Zimmerman’s detailed medical records.

The document describes Zimmerman as having suffered two black eyes, wounds to the back of the head, as well as a broken nose but that he declined both hospitalization after the encounter as well as a follow up with an ENT doctor. The doctor who wrote the document also writes that Zimmerman suffers from stress and “nausea” when thinking about the night and was strongly advised to see a psychologist.

It also states that, prior to the shooting, Zimmerman had been prescribed the drugs Adderall and Temazepam, medication that ABC points out “can cause side effects such as agitation and mood swings, but in fewer than 10 percent of patients.”

Of course, none of this proves exactly what the events were that led to Martin’s death. But they are important facts to add to this sad, sad story.

Watch the video from ABC News below:

I am anxious to see if they performed drug & alcohol testing on Martin. The discovery process is underway and we’ll see all Corey’ evidence pretty soon.

Already saw a reference to Martin having lacerations on his knuckles; no doubt from where Zimmerman violently struck them with his face.

If they did, it is not relevant and likely won't be disclosed because he was a minor.

I want to know if he had a weapon...like a knife. Bet he did...

This entire prosecution is ridiculous.

It seems I read somewhere that Trayvon’s knuckles were bruised.

Once the evidence is released, it will become apparent to non-leftists that there is no reason to have Zimmerman go to trial.

Zimmerman simply Stood His Ground.

The real tragedy of this is that this info should have been divulged during the the first 48 hours. The fact that they did not reveal this pertinent info caused mass hysteria in the country.

If the head is split you must acquit.

To be more accurate, he was laying on his ground.

What we have here is an attempt to limit the right to self-defense.

Has there been any mention of blood test results on Trayvon?
During Zimmerman’s call he describes the kid acting strangely.

If there were drugs in his system - that will be the last straw for this case.

...the drugs Adderall and Temazepam, medication that ABC points out “can cause side effects such as agitation and mood swings, but in fewer than 10 percent of patients.”

And having your nose broken, followed immediately by having your head slammed on the edge of a concrete sidewalk multiple times can cause the side effect of you shooting the person beating on you, in almost all cases.

"If the head is split you must acquit".

If the knuckles are bruised the State has losed.

Zimmerman simply Stood His Ground.

This was Self-Defense, which is legally different than "Stand Your Ground." Zimmerman was physically assaulted, pinned down, and unable to withdraw.

"Stand Your Ground," means that if you are under threat, you have no obligation to retreat as a first line of defense, nor have you the obligation to WAIT until you are actually attacked before taking action.

I think so too. The theory of the left and the race-baters seems to be this: if a black person decided he feels like beating, raping, or even killing a white person at any time of day or night, the white person just has to accept it as their due. Fighting back is "escalating the confrontation," and defending yourself with a firearm is attempted murder at the very least.

This could be why the media is out front with the "Zimmerman was taking Adderall and Temazepam" factoid. They may know what's coming w/r/t Trayvon's toxicology results.

Oh, by the way, if it does turn out that Trayvon was high, it won't be the last straw for the case. It should, but it won't.
