Cops, Witnesses Back Up George Zimmerman's Version of Trayvon Martin Shooting

Two police reports written the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin said that Zimmerman had a bloody face and nose, according to police reports made public today.

The reports also note that two witness accounts appear to back up Zimmerman's version of what happened when they describe a man on his back with another person wearing a hoodie straddling him and throwing punches.

In addition, Trayvon Martin's father told an investigator after listening to 911 tapes that captured a man's voice frantically callling for help that it was not his son calling for help.

The new information is part of a trove of documents released by the Florida State Attorney today in the case against Zimmerman, who is charged with second degree murder for the Feb. 26 killing of Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American male.

Hopefully the planned riots unravel, too.

My wz comment http://weaselzippers.us/2012/05/17/autopsy-trayvon-martin-had-thc-in-system/#comment-708359; see the comparison of photos of O & Traybin giving the middle finger:

Like father [or, as O said Travan would look like him] like son.

The mother hefering give the fingering HUGE 6’ 3” Goliath of a nearly 18 year old “kid” where the lamestream lib MSM has constantly showed Trajan’s 3rd grade school photo and Traiton’s knuckles were punch bruised. Insane!

And the likes of Al Sharpton are going to keep hollering about repealing laws giving you the right to defend yourself against the monstrously oversized thugs that roam the streets. Stand up to this perversion and travesty of justice that is happening now in FL.

If the Florida attorney general had all of this info...why on earth did she proceed with a 2nd degree murder charge?

Something is not adding up.

I believe all of the evidence is true and accurate...so why the charge?

Are they that willing to cave to pressure? If they are, it is an absolute miscarriage of justice and will lead to worse things by the race baiters who are pushing this agenda, including Holder and Obama.

Yeah and don't expect MSM to fall all over themselves to print full page apologies and otherwise explain that they are actually a bunch of race baiting money grubbers!

Where are all the Leftists FReepers who were telling me I was crazy and wrong in my opinion about what really happened with Tray-tray and Zimmerman when the story first gained notoriety?

Their silence is quite deafening.

Let’s take stock of the siCHEEYAtion so far, m’kay?

Trayvon was a VERY tall athlete who made numerous candid references to drugs and violence to his friends. He’d been suspended from school FOUR times in the last year. He had struck his school bus-driver in the face. They found him with burglary tools and jewelry. He was fond of gangster clothing and dental jewelry. His blood showed he was a habitual user of numerous narcotics, and his knuckles showed he’d been punching something before dying.

Meanwhile Zimmerman’s grand-father was black, he sometimes mentored black yutes and he had a pattern of empathy for local crime victims.

OTHER stuff I missed?

This is the LaCrosse case all over again.

It’s now obvious the prosecutor in this case should be disbarred...hopefully before the government loses the civil suit that’s coming down the pike...

Hopefully the planned riots unravel, too. An intelligent person would expect that as a logical outcome. But the Hoodies and the Hoodie moms and dads will still riot!

It makes sense if you understand that she was not specially appointed to seek justice, or even get a conviction. She was appointed to satisfy the mob and avoid riots. If she had bullied and badgered Zimmerman into accepting a plea bargain, so much the better, from her viewpoint.
