Obama-Media Fail: George Zimmerman Had Bandages on Broken Nose & Back of Head After Shooting

Protesters demand “justice for Trayvon” after his shooting death. (LA Times)

Now they tell us…
After weeks of hyperventilating, the Obama-media finally gets around to reporting that neighbors saw Zimmerman, a Hispanic Floridian, with bandages on his nose and the back of his head the day after the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
Reuters reported, via Free Republic:

Neighbors of George Zimmerman say he had bandages on his nose and head the day after he shot dead Trayvon Martin, supporting statements by the neighborhood watch volunteer that he was beaten in a confrontation with the black Florida teenager.

The extent of Zimmerman’s injuries could be crucial to his legal defense under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law, which allows the use of deadly force when someone has the reasonable belief he could face death or great bodily harm.

Police said Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the racially charged case, was bleeding from the nose and the back of his head and was treated by medics before being taken to Sanford police station after the February 26 shooting.

But public doubts were later raised by the release of a grainy surveillance video from the police station in which no injuries were readily visible.

Zimmerman later sought medical treatment for injuries including a broken nose, his former lawyers have said.

    Are these goons still whining about racism? According to the hispanic/latino/chicano/aztlan/la raza/brown-revolution(etc., etc., etc…..) mantra they are brown, and never see themselves as white. If they did, they would lose all their street creds and all the government goodies accruing to them due to their “unique” race.

    It requires an over the top paranoia for the black “community” to actually believe that ALL other government-defined and “protected” groups are out to “get” them.

    Unless, of course, most of the black “community” believes that everyone else is just as politically and morally corrupt and phony as their “community” is. Sounds like projection, IMHO.

    Zimmerman could end up owning a big chunk of the media for deliberately trying to frame him for murder.

    And I wish someone would get on Concilio National de la Raza and ask them why they are taking orders from Sharpton not to defend “white Hispanics”. Ditto MALDEF. These ostensibly Hispanic groups have not objected to Reuters creating a new splinter ethnic group, and have apparently not raised a finger to defend Z-man’s rights.

    If you scroll down this site to the article about George Zimmerman, it is eye opening.

    Thanks Jd #9

    Here is a direct link to article


    In it it says:
    “. . .In our own way we are all George Zimmerman. We think that society should be moral and rational, and that people should do the right thing. But that’s not what it is. It’s an insane braying donkey’s laugh as the thieves, large and small, rob the people blind and then muscle them into a lynch mob to go after some handy victim. It’s George today, it will be someone else tomorrow.. . .”

    Braying Donkey as in Democrat?

    The Democrat party of today is not like the one of old. .it has been hijacked by the left and commies. . .and morphed into DemocRATs. . .or worse. . . DemonRATs

    With Obama at the helm and the Libtard Elitist MSM driving the propaganda. . .

    Weeks and months after this tragic event, the MSM continues to distort and lie. . .using photoshoped images of Trayvon when he was 12 and unflattering mugshot images of Zimmerman. . .of not reporting the facts. . .

    Where is the convenience store video? Or a video of Trayvon entering the gated-community through the main (gated) entrance? and what about an autopsy report or medical examiner. . Trayvon was in the morgue for three days before anyone called. . .

    The article Jd #9 referred makes sense. . . beware. . and be on guard

    Z’man,start writing your book while you’re a “political prisoner”.. I’ll shell out $25 ,gladly….No jury of 12 peers will convict and they know it..that’s why no Grand Jury,she has nothing (2 main witnesses,mom & gf)weren’t even there….IMO,this will be plea bargained down AFTER election,you’re to hot right now..Yes,I’m aware of “Son of Sam” law..book doesn’t have to be about this case..Z’man can’t earn a normal living ever again..

    When a person is bopped in the nose, they suffer a period where they are actually stunned and unreactive, which gives the person who punched the person in the nose the advantage. When a person has their nose broken, they are trying to access the situation in their brain, so it is no wonder Zimmerman used his gun – he more than likely believed he had the underhand in the situation. If I had a black man beating me, I’d think like another black man, and that would be that I may be killed. Blacks are afraid of blacks, so why wouldn’t Zimmerman fear for his life too.

  • I just had my MENSA bright ex-partner look over the PC affidavit. He was struck dumb, which is almost impossible! I said, “Told ya. What would you say to the officer that brought that to you?” He said, “I would tell him he had some more work to do before he met the threshold or got anywhere near the threshold for 2nd degree murder!” I explained the exculpatory facts intentionally left out and the PC statement was really a cut and paste of news reports (Zimmerman “stalking” Martin- “pursuing” etc.)

    Worse I pointed out that they intentionally left the self defense evidence from the statement. He said no judge in their right mind would allow this charge to go forward, the statement does not have the elements in it. Then he read the jury instructions for 2nd degree and thought for a second. “Maybe with his comments about punks they can argue something, BUT that doesn’t matter because it doesn’t take into account the issue of self defense.” In Florida the law is VERY VERY straightforward and clear. It also was designed to prevent civil suits filed over the death. (Years ago, you could be found innocent and still be held accountable in civil court)

    In a real world, where Rick Scott’s desire to avoid race issues and Corey’s willingness to order her investigators to offer the court a false affidavit don’t exist(and trust me there are falsehoods in it and truths left out- Zimmerman should sue), this case would not last past first appearance.

    Shameful, shameful. But it does show you what political people will do to your freedoms.

    ht Taqiyyotomist via another thread..

    [Martin’s killing set off vocal protests – led by Al Sharpton – demanding
    the arrest of Zimmerman. Faced with threats of escalating fury from the
    protestors, Florida officials arrested Zimmerman last week. Obama and
    Attorney General Eric Holder have both suggested sympathy for the
    protestors or for Martin himself.]

    iow: typical leftist ‘they are the victims’ propaganda mantra..
    and i agree, only not of any racial divide, but of Obama’s Inc.

    Eight Minutes You Missed: George Zimmerman’s Former Lawyer’s Press Conference

    Since April 11th, the MSM has known at least as much as George Zimmerman’s former lawyer told them about the facts of the case. Those facts were woefully out of line with the Narrative. So the MSM just let us wonder about the strange moment and didn’t find much else very interesting. Except that it was. That’s why you didn’t see this. It’s part of the entire 45 minutes’ presser. All you or I got to see was a somewhat strange assembly listening to some lawyers throwing their client under the bus, or publicly wondering whether they had been thrown…

    Yes, Calming The Storm of Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman Related Racial Violence.

    (ThyBlackMan.com) As a black conservative Tea Party patriot, I have been struggling with what I should do, if anything, in response to the rash of incidents of racial violence resulting from the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case. Folks, a great evil is running the show in our country right now

    Prolific race-hustler Al Sharpton is heralded as a hero. http://bit.ly/IIUZR5 Attorney General Eric Holder ignores the New Black Panther “dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman. http://bit.ly/HM1Aiq Three major TV networks are caught manipulating facts of the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case to fuel racial hatred and anger. http://bit.ly/HchWtZ Minister Farrakhan tweeted referring to the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case, “Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon and very soon, the law of retaliation may very well be applied.”http://yhoo.it/GPnyxc

    Even a nut case white supremacist group have thrown their hat, or skinned heads, into the ring, threatening violence. http://bit.ly/IsEp8G

    Rather than showing pictures of 6’3” seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, nearly every TV news broadcast features pictures of Trayvon as an adorable little boy in his little league football uniform. This is done by design to further the media’s storyline: innocent-little-black-boy-murdered-by-evil-racist-white-man. George Zimmerman is not white. He is Hispanic. To further the mainstream media storyline, the New York Times has deemed George Zimmerman, a “white” Hispanic. http://wapo.st/HilSiA {…} read more

    re: my #19, the press conference with Z’s former lawyers

    They seem perplexed why their client abandoned them, and why THEN.


    Wake the F up.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    They were advising Z not to talk to anyone about the case…

    …while going on Soros-Saudi FOX NEWS to talk about the case.

    Hello? I’d have ditched you too, post haste.

  • Patty

    Americans are beginning to understand what is really going on in a nation that has enormous debt and a president that has no intentions to stop this runaway train.

    Nothing has change and nothing will. But the most irritating and unthinkable things that are important are RACE AND CHAOS. The left is taking up this torch. Not economy, Not our rights under the Constitution, Not our children’s future, Not our nuclear defense system being cut, but what do they protest, A CASE THAT HAS NOT BEEN FULLY MADE AS YET, TRAYVON AND ZIMMERMAN.

    GSA and Secret Service are a real embarrassment. Fast and Furious is a real embarrassment but what is important to Obama is scouting out a vacation. His trips have done nothing for our future and our children’s future. Gas Prices are skyrocketing but the left is concentrating their time on Zimmerman.

    We have just seen the Shuttle land for the last time today, we are broke. Our troops seem to be the only bright light in the past 3 years. Nothing has change since Obama took office. He has put his foot into Cambridge and Martin, he is irrelevant at a time when we need solutions.

  • tommy mc donnell

    i read this on another web site and it is so true. when the democratic party-media complex was culling the news wires looking for something they could use to boost obama’s campaign if zimmerman’s name was chavez nobody would have ever heard of trayvon martin.

  • tommy mc donnell

    is corey related to nifong? this is duke lacrosse II. zimmerman racially profiled trayvon martin(a guy he wasn’t even sure was black)and attacked him acording to the OPINION of the prosecutor without any evidence to back up these charges. this country is starting to resemble stalin’s russia more and more. its now possible to indicte someone on the opinion of the prosecutor. lets not even get into what the state run media did in this case.
