Trayvon Martin Death: Police Say Witnesses Back Zimmerman's Story?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/03/27 01:35:44
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Trayvon Martin decked George Zimmerman
with one punch and then repeatedly slammed his head into the sidewalk, according
to a newly released version of the events that led up to the 17-year-old’s
death.

The neighborhood watch captain was left “bloody and battered,”
according to the version Zimmerman told investigators. Witnesses have
corroborated his version, authorities told
The Orlando Sentinel.
And ABC News reports that Zimmerman told police that
Martin knocked him down and attempted to take his gun.

    According to whom? The authorities who didn't even bother to take Zimmerman's gun for a ballistics test? The cops who all but ensured there was no crime scene investigation BEFORE they let Zimmerman walk? If a black neighborhood watch guy would have shot a white boy under similar circumstances, would he be in Jail or even alive?If these alleged witnesses are so damned sure about Zimmerman's innocence, why have THEY not come forward, since According to police, no crime was committed? Where is the bloody and grass-stained shirt that Zimmerman allegedly wore? How come we haven't seen THAT yet? In fact, if Martin HAD been carrying a gun, wouldn't the so-called "Stand Your Ground" Law be equally applicable to explain Justifiable homicide had Martin Killed Zimmerman in "self-defense? After all, Martin was a kid being stalked by an armed man and in fear for his life?

    It's called "Equal Protection Under The Law" Had Martin been similarly armed that night, he would have been well within his Rights under the SAME Law to shoot Zimmerman DEAD. After all, he was being stalked by an armed man in civilian clothes with no actual Legal Authority to detain him for ANYTHING. That makes Zimmerman guilty of Manslughter, at the very least, or Premeditated 1st Degree Murder Possibly, since he left his car armed to chase Martin down after being TOLD BY THE POLICE NOT TO DO IT. Therefore the "Stand-Your-Ground" Law is inapplicable to this case and he shouldn't be able to plead it as a defense.

    The police did not arrest Zimmerman, and charges have not been filed against him at this time. That is telling. Also, Zimmerman has significant damage to his head. It is turning out to be a very different story than the one the media presented. Thank God we have law enforcement, and a legal system.

    If that's true, you really can't judge a book by its cover.
    Trayvon looks pretty spindly compared to George.
    Did he have krav maga training, or something?

    You need to see a recent picture of Martin. Apparently the media did not use what was on his Facebook page like they would have with everyone else in the universe, instead they used pictures that were years old (and that makes a big difference with a 17 year old).

    If Zimmerman was so injured and incapacitated, WHY didn't the Sanford Police video show,

    1. Any signs of visible wounds to Zimmerman's head?

    2 Any signs of difficulty in movement you would expect to see under Zimmerman's alibi.

    3. Any sign of blood, either HIS OR MARTIN"S, on his clothes. Clothes that clearly showed he was not dressed in a uniform or showing any sign that he had ANYTHING TO DO with Law Enforcement. To any witnesses, Zimmerman would appear as some armed stalker.
