Unarmed teen gets shot by Zimmerman...[Verdict: Not Guilty] ptII
 
Previous thread HERE

Keep the discussion on topic and make it clean. If you want to discuss the racial aspects of the case, fine. No need for racially derogatory comments. though.

Whites have too rioted. Haven't you ever heard of the White Night Riots in May 1979 in San Francisco, mhg83? If not, you better turn in your queer card. ;)

P.S. DID YOU CALL THE DOCTOR YET???? DO IT!

ABC News has a photo from the crime scene showing Zimmerman's bloody head.




Warning Graphic Photo: Possible New Evidence Shows George Zimmerman's Bloodied Head

A new photograph obtained exclusively by ABC News showing the bloodied back of George Zimmerman's head, which was apparently taken three minutes after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, gives possible credence to his claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as Zimmerman fought for his life.

The exclusive image shows blood trickling down the back of Zimmerman's head from two cuts. It also shows a possible contusion forming on the crown of his head. The original police report that night notes that the back of Zimmerman's head was wet, and that he was bleeding from the nose and head.

Im assuming the prosecution had that picture, how are they going to convict him. Is the case going to be that he started the fight leading to the death. That’s the only thing I can think of, and really there is no real evidence of that only speculation.

I still think he should sue some of the TV networks, They have really F'ed up his life.

I believe most people already believed Z got his head based and was injured during the fight. I think this will come down to who started the fight (probably impossible to determine) and if Z reasonably believed his life was in danger (also probably impossible to determine).

WHy is this photo just coming out now? Good grief, people were outraged a few weeks ago over the video showing no injures on Zimmerman.

An injury to the head like that constitutes a life threatening situation.

Schoolyard defenses don't work in the courtroom.

I honestly feel that the prosecutor's office realizes that they have no case, but they felt they had to press charges to appease all the people that are up in arms over this case.

Reminds of Richard Jewel and how the media displayed his face all over the US (and the world) as another wannabe-cop turned evildoer.

Once it's all over, if Zimmerman actually is free, he should sue the living fuck out of all the media networks who misrepresented him.

Martin's family should sue as well. Because they more than likely propped up lies on their end too, just to get certain viewer ratings.

Because if something is stupid, bandoman has to have had something to do with it.....

Zimmerman is good on the stand. The prosecutor got nowhere.

I don't see any reason why bail would be denied. Zimmerman was in contact with the police from the beginning and then turned himself in. Not a flight risk. Bail should be reasonable.

$150,000 Bond -- not too bad. The prosecutor wanted no bail or $1 million :lol:

we have a winner. And it's likely the first prosecutor saw this pic, and realized he had a loser of a case and that's why no charges were brought. Be interesting to see if the judge in the SYG hearing just dumps this case.

If the photo is real, why didn't they just show it from the beginning, and avoid all this arguing?

You mean ignorant, not stupid. There is a difference, and we are all ignorant about many aspects of this case.

Even with my alllegedly closed mind(from a poster in pt I), I have to agree with you on this one. We'll never know who really started things before they got out of hand and Martin was killed. I do believe Zimmerman thought he was in danger because Martin is dead. But in my opnion...since im not on the jury...i can give that...Zimmerman is the most likely initial source of the aggression that night.

With teenagers, crimes are usually crimes of opportunity. You have bored teens who wander around vandalize things break windows or jump people because they're at a very emotional 'invincible' stage in their life.

Maybe Zimmerman looked like some uptight prick who needed his ass beat and/or wallet stolen. Would you blame him for getting out of his car---for being an easy target?

I know you don't think T is a saint.

Because the media and the public are not supposed to be the prosecution, defense or jury?

They did release the video though, so one would think that this photo not long after would have been suitable given the widespread reaction of "no injury." But then you really start this game of playing it out with the public instead of the way things should be handled. A little late for that? Probably. I don't know the source or protocol for either the video or this image so who knows.
