George Zimmerman Shot In Florida; Minor Injuries
This time the Trayvon Martin killer was on the receiving end during a traffic dispute. Lake Mary, Florida Police Chief Steve Bracknell says the shooting involved an “ongoing dispute” between Zimmerman and another person.
The shooting involved two men and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard about 12:45 p.m., police said.
Officers at the scene said it appeared Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound, Bracknell said.
“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare…
In January, Zimmerman was accused of assault by his girlfriend, but no charges were filed after she recanted her allegation.
He was also arrested in November 2013 on domestic violence allegations after his girlfriend called police. His girlfriend later recanted her story and charges were never filed.
Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in 2013.

the other guy was a bad shot. damn. anyway, he will get his soon.

yes it seems he was, but thinking George might have received the message loud and clear. on what it is like being a target for real.

It’s only been 4 years since Zimmerman killed Travon Martin, and only a few years since the trial. It’s more like Zimmerman’s been arrested an average of twice per year since the shooting, and yes, Zimmerman is a a criminal, an unconvicted criminal, but still a criminal. Trayvon was an angel compared to George Zimmerman. . . . Question: What happens when an angel meets a demon?
whatthe46 May 11th, 2015 at 7:34 pm
he was also a criminal before he murdered travon.
kurtsteinbach May 11th, 2015 at 8:14 pm
Yes, he was an unconvicted, unindicted rapist. Ironic how all of that is coming back at him now. Zimmerman is not “innocent” at all, and is not in this case, once again. My local news station, WMC in Memphis, which is quite conservative, actually referred to him as the killer of Trayvon martin. Their story also mentioned that, Apperson, the man who shot at Zimmerman today, was also involved with Zimmerman in a 2014 road rage incident. Then, unlike this incident, Zimmerman was the perpetrator in the 2014 road rage incident, in which he threatened to kill Apperson. Is anyone really surprised that a violent accused, unindicted, rapist and unconvicted, freed killer on technicalities has been arrested over 5 times since he got away with it? Violent people don’t stop being violent just because they get away with it. Zimmerman and that Castro guy from Ohio who raped those women and later killed himself in jail, are birds of a feather. Both belong in cages where psychologists, psychiatrists, and other medical professionals can study them for the betterment of humanity. Zimmerman is as violent and delusional as all the idiots who gave the idiot money to fund his lying, sham of a defense. Conservatives regard both Zimmerman and Cliven Bundy as heros, instead of as the criminal sociopaths that they are. . . .
whatthe46 May 11th, 2015 at 8:25 pm
“Both belong in cages where psychologists, psychiatrists, and other medical professionals can study them for the betterment of humanity.” the psych would need a psych. again, like i’ve said, it’s going to take zimmerpussy to kill/murder a white person, before all those racist/bigots who supported him to come to the same conclusion.

Must have been a head shot if he was able to walk to ambulance, no vital organs were hit.

Zimmerman’s attorney Don West said a bullet missed Zimmerman’s head, but he was sprayed with glass from his vehicle’s windshield and other debris.

remember the black woman that shot a warning shot into the wall of her home because of her abusive husband who she had a restraining order against? well, she got 20 yrs for NOT killing him. so, yes it is against the law in FL not to hit your target. and if you’re black it’s also against the law to hit your target.

madjayhawk May 11th, 2015 at 4:35 pm
People are rejoicing because a man was shot because they disagree with a jury who sat through and carefully evaluated the evidence in an unfortunate case. The people who are celebrating that Zimmerman was shot are sick. They probably never looked at one piece of evidence in the case. If they had honestly looked at the evidence with an open mind they would have probably agreed with the jury. It is sad and surprising to see that good liberal people have stooped to being happy that a minority, even someone like Zimmerman, was shot. I thought liberals opposed the death penalty. Apparently just words.
Um Cara May 11th, 2015 at 4:37 pm
>I thought liberals opposed the death penalty.
Most of us do oppose the death penalty – this goober wasn’t killed, it says right up there in the article that the injuries were minor. So what are you talking about?
Hirightnow May 11th, 2015 at 4:52 pm
He wasn’t even shot, from what I’ve heard; he was injured by shattered glass.
madjayhawk May 11th, 2015 at 6:33 pm
Yes, having the glass shattered next to your head by a bullet is sooooo much better than being actually shot. Being able to sleep at night with that thought in mind is a whole lot better than being shot in the head.

madjayhawk May 11th, 2015 at 6:27 pm
Let me spell it out for you in simple terms.
In most cases where one person shoots another person in anger they do it to inflict severe bodily injury up to and including death.
When the left starts a cheering section to celebrate that a individual is shot and appear by all accounts that they are happy that the man was shot . And if he dies, so much the better. Isn’t that correct? It is like the creeps standing around a prison and celebrating when someone is put to death isn’t it? I don’t see a difference.

madjayhawk May 12th, 2015 at 1:17 am
We do not have a gun problem. We have a gun owner problem. 4 people were shot last night in the area where I live last night. 3 of them were, according the media, gang related. “Let’s go to a party and shoot someone”. The other may have been related to illegal human trafficking. Let’s you and I go down to their neighborhood and take those guns away from those guys. Most of the shootings around here happen there.
Drugs are a big nasty business involving heavily armed people. I would bet that not one of them is an NRA member.
Keep in mind, if you point a gun at a police officer he will more than likely shoot you because if you point a gun at him, believe it or not, you are threatening his life. So my advice to everyone, black or white or brown, do not point guns at police officers. And if they ask you to do something do it and argue about it later. That will probably get you through 99% of your interactions with the police.
I know a lot of black guys who have been hassled by the police for good and no reason and they are all alive and in one piece because they cooperated and helped the officer do his job.
There are bad officers for sure and nothing will stop them from being A**holes except putting their worthless butts in jail for a long time when they are caught. There aren’t that many around here that I have seen.
Obewon May 12th, 2015 at 1:35 am
U.S. gun owners are a mere 31% of households, but commit 2/3 of all homicides. American ‘gun owners are 22 to 43 times more likely to shoot friends and family than any intruder’-FBI CDC.
More conceal carry guns, causes more gun deaths: Conceal Carry Increases Gun deaths +8%! #3 Texas A&M University Peer-Reviewed Study: “Abstract
From 2000 to 2010, more than 20 states passed so-called “castle doctrine” or “stand your ground” laws. These laws expand the legal justification for the use of lethal force in self-defense, thereby lowering the expected cost of using lethal force and increasing the expected cost of committing violent crime. This paper exploits the within-state variation in self-defense law to examine their effect on homicides and violent crime. Results indicate the laws do not deter burglary, robbery, or aggravated assault. In contrast, they lead to a statistically significant 8% net increase in the number of reported murders and non-negligent manslaughters.” http://econweb.tamu.edu/mhoekstra/castle_doctrine.pdf Kansas Governor Signs Bill Allowing Permit-And-Training-Free Concealed Carry

I am weird. I like to see the evidence before rushing to judgment. Sometimes the media and so-called eye-witnesses they trot out in front of the cameras get it wrong and it comes very easy to make a snap judgment about a case.
Any kind of criminal behavior should be punished. But I, unlike many, prefer to see a judicial process where all the evidence is considered.
We have bad police officers, good police officers, good citizens caught in a bad situation, and people who should be locked up to protect us all. We need sort them out.
The justice system from cops on the beat to the courts is not perfect but it is better than mob rule which many seem to favor. It needs to be reformed – particularly prosecutors. Cops have a tough job few want to do but they have to stay within the law and if they don’t they should be locked up like any other criminal. And those who cover up bad behavior should be locked up too.

You can rant all you want, but I don’t except Florida’s verdict any more than I accept their idiotic stand your ground law.
I also think O.J. was guilty, and like O.J. Zimmercoward will get what’s coming to him…eventually.
madjayhawk May 12th, 2015 at 12:25 am
The stand your ground law had nothing to do with the trial. Zimmerman’s defense was that he shot Martin in self defense. The stand your ground law was never mentioned in the trial. Why liberals keep bringing it up is a mystery. Zimmerman convinced the jury that he acted in self defense because he thought his life was in danger. The evidence shown in the trial showed that it was pretty likely he was telling the truth.
Let me ask what you would do if someone was straddling your chest and beating on you like he was going to kill you? Would you let him beat you to death to make a point?
More than one witness said this is what was happening to Zimmerman. Zimmerman had bodily evidence of being beaten. Martin didn’t have a mark on him except for a bullet hole.
Zimmerman was following Martin and stopped at the T and was waiting for the police to arrive. A police dispatcher, not a policeman, suggested that he not follow Martin. Listen to the tape of the 911 call. Zimmerman even went over to the next street to see if they had arrived. The police got there shortly after Zimmerman shot Martin. A very short time. Look at the time line. Zimmerman is the one who called the police. Not Martin or his girlfriend. The police were due to arrive at any minute. You don’t call the police if you are planning to track someone down and kill them in the next 10 minutes. Why would Zimmerman follow a guy down a dark stretch of sidewalk and assault him when the police were coming? Martin was obviously bothered by Zimmerman following and waited in some buses and then attacked him. Martin had plenty of time to walk or run to the apartment just a short distance away. He didn’t and hid then suckered punched Zimmerman. Martin was not a little boy.
William May 12th, 2015 at 7:43 am
Let me just stop you right there.
I spent 16 years as a street cop. I’ve has sleeves torn off, lacerations, contusions and was even run down by a motorcycle.
Not once, NOT once did I feel the need to pull my weapon and kill somebody over a fistfight.
Zimmerpussy is a little cop- wanna-be who was stalking as he put it one of “them”. He was directed not to. a kid was kicking his ass and he answered non deadly force with deadly force.
He broke the chain of escalation.
If you think for a second that acquittal and innocence is the same thing, you know even less about our judicial system than I thought.
madjayhawk May 13th, 2015 at 2:23 am
Please get you facts right William. He was not directed to do anything. Police dispatchers, as you know, do not give orders. They are prohibited from doing so for liability reasons. Everyone knows this that knows anything about law enforcement. The dispatcher suggested that he not continue to follow Martin. Listen to the tape of the call. It is very clear what he said and what he meant. Zimmerman had stopped near the tee in the sidewalk and was waiting for the police that he had called twice when he was attacked by Martin.
“A kid was kicking his ass.” It is nice to see a liberal say that. It is very rare for someone to actually agree with all the evidence at the trial that showed that. Evidence gets in the way of a liberal’s view that poor little old unarmed Trayvon was an innocent victim of a vicious attack by a stalking white, oops Hispanic, guy. They forget that little Tryvon was a pretty good sized kid. His knuckles were skinned, bruised and swollen according to the police report. How hard do you hit someone when you bruise and skin your knuckles?
As a police officer what would you do if someone were sitting on your chest, kicking your ass (your words), and, according to Zimmerman reaching for your gun? Could you please tell me that? They probably covered that in police academy didn’t they? “when a suspect is sitting on your chest and beating you (skinning and bruising his knuckles) you should
a) lie still and maybe he will get tired of pounding on your head
c) call for help and hope they get there before the guy does something drastic like kill you or keep beating you until you are unconscious
Everyone knows acquittal does not equal innocence and I never implied or said that. OJ was guilty and was acquitted for example. Zimmerman was acquitted and whether he was innocent or not depends on your point of view. If you think Zimmerman does not have a right to defend himself and that he should have just laid there and let Martin beat on him for another hour or two you probably think he is guilty. You would have just laid there too wouldn’t you?
When someone was beating up on you did you think about whether they were exerting just plain old everything friendly force or were exerting something approaching deadly force? How could you tell?
I never mentioned anything about the First Amendment or Garland so I have no idea what you are talking about.
William May 13th, 2015 at 8:02 am
As a police officer what would you do if someone were sitting on your chest, kicking your ass (your words), and, according to Zimmerman reaching for your gun? Could you please tell me that? They probably covered that in police academy didn’t they?
At the criminal justice academy you are taught basic constitutional law.
IE, in this country you actually have to have a reason and the authority to tail someone.
Zimmerpussy had neither.
He had a racist agenda, a gun and he used it.
A fistfight is not deadly force, a gun is.
If you don’t know the difference between deadly force and non deadly force, you’re even dumber than I originally thought.
I’ve had two occasions where a suspect reached for my weapon. I didn’t kill either one of them..
But then again I was taught weapons retention.
Zimmercoward had a gun, an agenda, yet no training or authority. He took it upon himself to interject his sorry cowardly ass into Trayvons life. Zimmerman will eventually get what’s coming to him, then you came scream and cry about his rights being violated.
madjayhawk May 13th, 2015 at 1:16 pm
So they taught you in the police academy to run away when someone sucker punches you or tell the person on top of your chest, beating you, about constitutional law? That’s cool. Zimmerman wasn’t a police officer. He was just an ordinary citizen.
You might want to go back and read the evidence from the trial.
There was no evidence Zimmerman had a racial agenda. The Department of Justice spent millions of dollars trying to prove that he did and came up with absolutely nothing. That was a total joke and a waste of OUR money. It is a joke to say Zimmerman had a racial agenda. Martin was the one making racist remarks. Martin’s family never filed a suit against Zimmerman as far as I could tell.
“I’ve had two occasions where a suspect reached for my weapon. I didn’t kill either one of them.” That’s great that your training allow to you find another way to deal with the situation or avoid it. That is why police officers are trained because it is likely that at some time they will come up against someone trying to do harm them or control them. You are aware that even the move innocent looking people might suddenly turn on you at any time and try to harm you or kill you. BUT, if you made a mistake and if the guy somehow had got you down and had been beating on you while sitting on your chest then reached for your weapon what would you have done (besides reading the constitution to him)?
Zimmerman was not a trained police officer. He was a pudgy little out of shape guy that couldn’t fight his way of out of a wet paper bag. He was surprised and sucker punched by a guy. Not too many police officers would have let that ever happen. They would have either had their gun drawn or been ready to protect themselves. A trained officer is ready for anything when they deal with someone they do not know. Their lives depend on it. They never assume someone in a situation like that is friendly. Zimmerman was not a trained police officer. If Zimmerman had his gun drawn this would have never had happened because Martin would have seen the gun and probably gone on home. But for some reason Martin didn’t take the opportunity to go home after Zimmerman lost sight of him. Martin decided to come back and confront Zimmerman and while they were talking Martin sucker punched him. There is no evidence Zimmerman ran Martin down. Martin was not the cute little kid the media like to put up on the screen. He was a big kid. Why he came back is something no one will ever know.
Zimmerman had called the police TWICE to come and investigate Martin. The police were on their way. He did the right thing for someone who was just a citizen. He was not ‘stalking Martin’ as liberals love to say. Do people stalk anything by walking down the middle of the sidewalk or road? He was following Martin? Do stalkers call the police? The use of the loaded word ‘stalk’ in this case is nothing but race baiting.
Zimmerman rights were not violated. He was arrested and tried and acquitted. I never said his rights were violated. I think that it was appropriate that he was arrested and tried. If the prosecutors had appropriately charged him he probably would have been convicted of a lesser charge. The media and the race baiters went crazy and if you look back at reports on the matter you will see how biased they were. That influenced the prosecutors. They were bringing up things that had nothing to do with the actual issue: did Zimmerman kill Martin in self defense? If he did, aquittal. If he didn’t he was guilty of something else.
You know and I know Zimmerman is a very troubled person. The guy, if he had a chance to do it all over again, would have gone on to the store and ignored a kid who looked out of place in his neighborhood (where there had been a large number of break-ins). He made a choice to follow Martin for whatever reasons and it made his life a living hell that many of us would not have been able to deal with. He is not dealing with it very well and he has liberals all over the country wishing he would be murdered.
We have a good neighborhood patrol and watch people who look like they do not live here in our neighborhood who would have followed Martin until the police arrived too. They report to the police several people each week that obviously do not live here. The watch people know who lives here. Most of the time there is no problem but 3 or 4 times a year the police apprehend career criminals. The people who break in to houses and cars here know that they are being watched so our crime rate is almost zero. The police work closely with them because they help deter crime. Liberals hate that. They want criminals to be able to come in and case the houses and break-in whenever they want. They call what the watch people do here “profiling” and want it to stop. They are crazy. To them it is better for their neighbors to be robbed, raped, and beaten than to have one person profiled even though they are not. You should hear the stupid arguments the liberals make in meetings.
kurtsteinbach May 13th, 2015 at 1:27 pm
No, fool, the Police Academy taught him not to shoot unarmed civilians, which Neighborhood Watch, like the one Zimmerman was formerly a part of teaches its people as well. The Police Academy also taught William about the necessary use of force, which is something you and your idol Zimmerwussie do not understand in the slightest. Moreover, in fact Neighborhood Watch USA forbids its people from patrolling armed, or from pursuing people. It does not matter that Police Dispatchers may not give lawful orders. If they tell you not to follow or pursue somebody, you follow that. If you are neighborhood watch, you must follow what they tell you, or you are just a vigilante, which is what Zimmerman was. He was not on NW duty that night. He was on his own duty. When you call 911, you do what they tell you! You really must hate police officers to be so rude and disrespectful to William, a police officer.
William May 13th, 2015 at 2:06 pm
So they taught you in the police academy to run away when someone sucker punches you or tell the person on top of your chest, beating you
They taught us not to stalk people who weren’t committing any crimes or violations.
“Zimmerman was not a trained police officer. He was a pudgy little out of shape guy that couldn’t fight his way of out of a wet paper bag.”
Then WTF was he doing stalking a kid who was not doing anything wrong?
Oh right, he was making a neighborhood “safe”
Seriously, the more you babble the dumber you seem.
I don’t care about your neighborhood.
I don’t care about your neighborhood watch.
I don’t care about your pathetic and increasingly desperate efforts to convince me that Zimmerman isn’t a murdering scumbag coward.
I’m pretty much done reading your bullshit. Zimmberclown now has a half dozen mug shots. It’s just a matter of time. I hope they put him in general population.

I ran the above through Google Translate (Wingnut to American English):
Some people are experiencing schadenfreude over a knuckledragging ammosexual getting injured in an incident in which he played antagonist, because they disagree with a jury that seemed weighted against the black victim and sat through and evaluated poorly presented prosecutorial evidence in an unfortunate case? The people who are experiencing schadenfreude over Zimmerman being shot are normal. They probably never looked at one piece of evidence in the case because they were not in the courtroom, and relied on accurate reporting and expert analysis. If they had honestly looked at the evidence with a closed mind and the sloppy prosecution the evidence was given they might or might not have agreed with the jury. It is sad and surprising that I would play “concern troll” and claim that “good liberal people have stooped to being happy” that an ammosexual, particularly someone with as blatant a history of angry outbursts and domestic violence as the clearly troubled but dangerous Zimmerman, was shot. What liberals think of the the death penalty is irrelevant, but that’s the sort of trolling I do: apparently mere stupidity converted into words.

Ever heard of updated troll food based upon new info? No? Here’s why:
-GOP TV always re-runs errant drivel, without updating for any “New information” e.g. Issa’s “0 indictments” and 7+ GOP led BenGhazi grifter investigations all agreed with the Inspector Generals Report: “No laws Broken” “No stand down order” “No wrongdoing by anyone in the Obama Admin or by Secretary Clinton.”
Why wasn’t that breaking faux news??? A: ABC, and FNC’s 1 M Total Daily Viewers are too dumb to fact check, believing Goebbels “Big Lie” repeated often is real.

Wow…so many people happy to see someone shot! Just wondering, why is it that when someone gets shot the gun is blamed? Yet, when someone gets killed with a baseball bat, automobile, ice pick, etc. the perpetrator is blamed.
The Second Amendment should be abolished, just as soon as the First Amendment is abolished. Oh, almost forgot people are calling for limitation on the First Amendment now due to Garland, TX.

Well it looks like the ammosexual troll alert system has been activated. Soon we will be up to our elbows in right wing concern for senseless violence.
Hirightnow May 11th, 2015 at 5:08 pm
When was the last time you read about a child running himself over, or beating himself to death accidentally with a baseball bat, or saw a news story about a drive-by ice-picking?

No use. His brain can’t get read through the first coma without being utterly confused. Ammosexuals are so insecure in their manhood that they refuse all logic.
Hirightnow May 11th, 2015 at 5:13 pm
A lot of the people who scream the loudest in support of the 2nd amendment are generally the ones who should never be allowed arms.
Just my opinion.
rational_thinking_one May 11th, 2015 at 5:19 pm
The 2nd Amendment is probably the most useless amendment of them all. As US military technology has expanded far beyond that of “a well regulated militia,” the prospect of a militia ever being significant has dwindled to nil. But these idiots with AR-15 really believe they stand a chance against fighter jets, tanks, nuclear weapons, etc., etc. if it ever came to that…

We are not blaming the gun, you hypocritical, projecting dumbass. We are blaming flaming lifestyle ammosexual George Zimmerman, who in a truly just society would be stripped of his weapons and, if he showed any further tendencies toward violence, domestic or otherwise, would be thrown either into prison or a mental facility to force him to deal with his anger and violence issues. Or maybe just get the lobotomy that would render him safe to society.
StoneyCurtisll May 11th, 2015 at 8:01 pm
Except Zimmerman wasn’t shot..
Only injured by flying glass.
NW10 May 11th, 2015 at 8:29 pm
Now that is hilarious. The “Stand Your Ground” hero couldn’t stand his ground in this instance and was hurt by flying glass.
madjayhawk May 12th, 2015 at 1:59 am
His defense did not use the Stand Your Ground law. It used Self Defense. Those are two separate laws.

White guy? Zimmerman is an Hispanic. You must have quit paying attention after you got your 5 second sound bite from MSNBC that a white guy shot an unarmed 13 year old kid in the back. Zimmerman was many things but he wasn’t a white guy and it was pretty clear to most intelligent people he wasn’t a racist.
Dwendt44 May 11th, 2015 at 7:08 pm
To paraphrase right wing talking heads, Zimmerman is only ‘Half Hispanic’.
madjayhawk May 11th, 2015 at 8:11 pm
I have never hear anyone refer to Zimmerman as being ‘half Hispanic.” Who said that? Most Hispanics, I believe, proudly refer to themselves as Hispanic if they have Hispanic or Latino blood. I believe people can call themselves whatever they want. It doesn’t matter.
I did read where CNN was using the term ‘white Hispanic’ after they had labeled him as white for some reason. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/12/cnn-white-hispanic_n_3588744.html It sounded as if they were covering their butts because some Hispanics were up in arms over the term white Hispanic. The media, right and left, have a vested interested in keeping racial animosity on page one and any black-white and white-black conflict leads the news. I bet CNN and MSNBC cried when they found out Zimmerman was a Hispanic (he refers to himself as a Hispanic based on his heritage).
Note that in the article above HP invented the term ‘super-white’ to disparage an Hispanic Republican candidate in order to show their well-known hate side when it comes to minorities.

he has a WHITE MALE Florida drivers license. Texas cop says so – and they ain’t allowed to lie when calling in a DL.
Chinese Democracy May 11th, 2015 at 7:20 pm
if things keep going like this .. zimmerman is going to hurt or kill someone… wait
Judgeforyourself37 May 11th, 2015 at 7:24 pm
What does George Zimmerman do for a living? Does he actually go to a job each day?
BTW, Latinos/Latinas are considered to be white by most of people, as they are not African American, Asian or Native Americans. Latinos/Latinas can, of course, be bi or tri racial.
dave-dr-gonzo May 11th, 2015 at 7:26 pm
“Most of it pointed to the fact that Zimmerman shot a guy who was on top of him, beating the crap out of him.”
Um, no. The prosecution, to their credit, tore huge holes in this defense theory. As in holes the size that iceberg tore in the Titanic.
I know, I know, I must have picked up that fact from the liberal media. Well, if that’s the case, since I read that in the Wall Street Journal, Rupert Murdock must be the new Trotsky.
So I’m calling BULLSHIT on you, “madjayhawk”.
You are either misinformed or lying outright.
Which is it?
madjayhawk May 11th, 2015 at 7:44 pm
Call bullshit all day and all night if you want. If I am lying or misinformed please explained this story from ABC (sorry it is not MSNBC but it isn’t FOX) and note that these are PROSECUTION WITNESSES in the article:
Note the part that says:
“Manalo took photos of Zimmerman’s bloody nose, the back of his bloody head, Martin’s body lying face down in the grass and a flashlight on the ground.”
How did Zimmerman get these injuries in your opinion?
And if you recall from your extensive readings of the trial transcript that there wasn’t one mark on Martin except for a bullet hole.
dave-dr-gonzo May 11th, 2015 at 7:45 pm
Which, by the way, are the very pieces of evidence the prosecution shredded, if you’d other to actually read both the WSJ and Miami Herald pieces.
You are either misinformed or lying outright.
madjayhawk May 11th, 2015 at 8:38 pm
The prosecution called THEIR OWN WITNESS liars? News to me. Did you even read the article I linked to.
I am still waiting to see your links. I searched and found nothing.
I watched the trial and can’t remember the prosecution doing much of anything when it came to discrediting Good and Manalo and others. Good was very creditable in my opinion. There were witnesses who said Zimmerman was on top. However that was after he shot Martin. Very briefly. No one, I think, disputes that.
How do you explain Zimmerman’s injuries (particularly to the back of his head) and the fact that Martin had none if Zimmerman is the one beating up on Martin? Instead of calling me names, just come up with some facts to show me what I said was wrong and answer a few simple questions.
Personally I went into the trial with an open mind and considered all the evidence presented. I actually think Zimmerman may have been found guilty of manslaughter or something else if the prosecution wasn’t so incompetent. Zimmerman didn’t have to kill Martin but we weren’t the ones on the wet ground being beaten.
I never have thought that shooting to kill in most circumstances is warranted. There are some where it is. But not many. I was unexpectedly attacked once by a crazed individual with a knife once and had a weapon myself (not a gun) but didn’t use it. I thought he was going to hurt me, not kill me. Probably not a smart idea. I was lucky and he didn’t kill me. They never found the guy who did it.
dave-dr-gonzo May 11th, 2015 at 9:24 pm
“The prosecution called THEIR OWN WITNESS liars?”
They quite thoroughly tore holes in the Trayvon-on-top, poor-weak-helpless-Zimmerman-on-the-bottom theory that the DEFENSE tried to superimpose on the scenario.
Talibandrew Breitbot May 11th, 2015 at 9:43 pm
Also — as I recall — at least two of the jurors were not convinced of the Zimmerman-on-the-bottom theory but found Zimmerman not guilty based on other criteria. Believe one of them was interviewed locally and video was carried on CNN.
whatthe46 May 12th, 2015 at 1:02 am
the other criteria was, the fact that the DA only gave what evidence he wanted to. the evidence that would suggest stalking someone and starting an altercation is not a crime, even if you murder them.
whatthe46 May 11th, 2015 at 11:02 pm
“How do you explain Zimmerman’s injuries (particularly to the back of his head) and the fact that Martin had none if Zimmerman is the one beating up on Martin?” first of all, zimmerpussy’s injuries, were not anywhere consistant with his lying ass accounts. if his head was being pounded into the cement, as he would like you to believe, he was have had massive swelling. he would have had staples in his head, he would have blacked out long enough for travon to run home, something he was trying to do whilst being stalked by some raving lunatic. the fact that travon had no obvious injuries, that would occur during a heated battle, speaks volumes. it means that he couldn’t have (zimmerbitch) been in a long hard fought battle for his life. you’re suggesting that zimmerpussy, was in this life or flight battle for his life, yet, travon had no signs of a struggle. this investigation was a lie from the moment this kid was murdered. live with it. or, you can remain in denial. you know the obvious, which is that this criminal, this rapist, (got off from that too) this on the loose physocpath, is a danger to anyone who encounters him. travon, didn’t have a criminal record. zimmerbitch did.
madjayhawk May 12th, 2015 at 1:54 am
What injuries did Zimmerman have?
A medical report found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a “closed fracture” of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation.
The two lacerations on the back of his head, one of them nearly an inch long, the other about a quarter-inch long, were first revealed in photos obtained exclusively by ABC News last month.
Martin only had injuries to his knuckles, consistent with punching someone or something.
