    The Right Scoop ^ | April 21st, 2012
    Mark Levin says that his jaw dropped when finding out that Florida state prosecutor Angela Corey left out vital evidence in her affidavit that favors Zimmermanís side of the story, the photos of his bleeding head wounds. Corey clearly had access to all of the evidence as she pushed for a 2nd degree murder charge and still left it out. Looking at everything public to date, including Florida law, Levin says this doesnít even come close to a 2nd degree murder case and that Angela Corey is a disgrace for pushing for it in her affidavit while leaving out vital...

    In an unusual move, George Zimmerman took the witness stand Friday to apologize to the parents of Trayvon Martin for fatally shooting their 17-year-old son. Assistant prosecutor Bernardo de la Rionda took the opportunity to grill the neighborhood watch volunteer about some of the statements he made to police. Here's a partial transcript of Zimmerman's testimony: Zimmerman: I wanted to say I am very sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am, and I did not know if he was armed or...
  • Photo taken after Trayvon Martin shooting shows bloody George Zimmerman [LIVE THREAD]

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. ó WFTV just learned Friday morning about a picture of gunman George Zimmerman, taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead. The picture reportedly shows cuts on the back of Zimmerman's head, with blood trickling down. Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin on February 26 in a gated Sanford community, claimed he killed Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Martin. The picture would seem to back up Zimmerman's claim that Martin slammed his head against the sidewalk. That picture could be part of...

    Following George Zimmerman's successful bail hearing in Sanford, Fl., today, Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump made statements at a courthouse press conference that sounded to me like veiled calls for violence against Zimmerman.Crump repeatedly spoke about how the Martin family 'could not understand why the state was protecting' Zimmerman and used inflammatory language to describe Zimmerman getting bail. He also compared Zimmerman in a suit at the hearing to Trayvon wearing a suit in his coffin.Crump is an officer of the court. He knows that defendants are presumed innocent and are afforded every measure to protect them during prosecution.If...

    Among all the coverage of Zimmerman being granted bail, most reporters are missing the most important detail of the day. The State's investigator admitted, under oath, that they have no way to disprove Zimmerman's claim that Trayvon Martin started the flight and assaulted him. The details are buried deep in the story, but they are crucial: Gilbreath is the State's Investigator:O'Mara is Zimmerman's attorney: (from the story)"During further questioning by O'Mara, Gilbreath admitted that the state has no evidence who started the fight. There is also no evidence that Zimmerman didn't walk back to his car after chasing Martin on...

    SANFORD, Fla. - The family of Trayvon Martin will sit in the same courtroom on Friday as George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed their son, for the first time. Benjamin Crump said the Martin family is attending the hearing at the request of special prosecutor Angela Corey. Crump said the family is bracing themselves to be the same room with Zimmerman and will be hoping he doesn't get bond. Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said Zimmerman would like to meet with the Martin family. "There's no reason not to have a conversation," O'Mara said Thursday. "It should be personal,...
