Autopsy results reveal that Trayvon Martin had only two injuries on his body – a fatal gunshot wound and bloody knuckles.
Via The FOX Report:

On the other hand, George Zimmerman did have injuries, including a fractured nose, two black eyes and cuts on the back of his head.

WTFV reported:

WFTV has confirmed that autopsy results show 17-year-old Trayvon Martin had injuries to his knuckles when he died.

The information could support George Zimmerman’s claim that Martin beat him up before Zimmerman shot and killed him.

The autopsy results come as Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara continues to go over other evidence in the case.

O’Mara wouldn’t comment on the autopsy evidence, but WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said it’s better for the defense than it is for the prosecution.

WFTV has learned that the medical examiner found two injuries on Martin’s body: The fatal gunshot wound and broken skin on his knuckles.

Al Sharpton was unavailable for comment.

    “And the autopsy report tells us what precisely?

    That’s right… it tells us that Trayvon Martin was in a fight just prior to being shot to death.

    We’ve known that since Feb 26th.

    The autopsy report has zero value in telling us who instigated the confrontation which is really the root of the matter.”

    No, it isn’t the root of the matter. This is shows a very basic lack of understanding about the law and the use of force.

    The question isn’t “who instigated the confrontation”, it is (1) was Zimmerman in fear of death or serious bodily injury when he drew a weapon and fired, and (2) had he broken the law before doing so.

    If the answer to #1 is no, he’s screwed. If the answer to #1 is no and #2 is yes, he’s REALLY screwed. If #1 is yes and #2 is yes, he is some lesser degree of screwed.

    Whether Martin was breaking the law or not at some point (i.e assault, whatever) is likely irrelevant. It is entirely possible to have a shooting like this where both parties are in fear of life/limb and either no one broke the law (a tragic misunderstanding) or only one party committed a relatively minor offense (usually simple assault or battery, thinking they were getting into a fistfight). Bad things happen; bad decisions make them worse, and failing to bring a gun to a gunfight you didn’t know you were starting usually doesn’t turn out very well.

    Martin could have given Zimmerman cause to fear for life and limb any number of ways — some of which are perfectly lawful (for example making a stupid, perfectly legal, misinterpreted move). He might even have assaulted Martin with a reasonable fear for his own safety due to similar and not necessarily criminal action by Zimmerman.

    You have to understand that while simply approaching someone and confronting them (by asking what they’re doing there) might have ultimately set what happened into motion, it’s not illegal. It doesn’t matter if Zimmerman “profiled” him or not – that’s not illegal either. It doesn’t matter if the only reason the two ended up talking was because Zimmerman approached him. If Zimmerman was not breaking the law and reasonably feared for his life or safety when he drew and fired, then he is off the hook, period.

    Adding to the confusion is the “Stand your ground” nonsense. The “Stand your ground” law doesn’t even factor into this as the situation has been presented to us, because the duty to retreat is only present when you can do so safely, and it is applied when the threat presents itself; it is not a duty to avoid confronting people in the first place.

    It’s not looking good for the prosecution. For any non-trivial crime at all to have been committed by Zimmerman here they need to show that Zimmerman was either not in fear of his life/limb when he fired or that he was committing some other crime before doing so that resulted in Martin giving him those injuries.

  2. Doesn’t matter.

    At least to the Leftist Narrative, they’ve already accounted for this.

    They’ll go with the story that poor, little, oppressed Trayvon had to defend himself from the big, fat, evil, racist white guy (Zimmerman) who was stalking him through the ‘burbs with a gun. I mean, wouldn’t you?

    I know they’ll do this since they already have.

    Trust me. Whatever facts come out, whatever the conclusion of the trials against Zimmerman (and they will be many) there will be people on the left and in the black community who will never accept reality. Who will go on for decades about the evil Zimmerman and racist America.

    I pray for Zimmerman and his family because he left has found it’s new scapegoat.

  3. This is totally unacceptable.. You white people want justice. You white people say that black youth walk around attacking single white folk!!! Give me a break. Trayvon Martin was killed out of Racism at it’s finest. First off you white folk know that unfortunately black people don’t bother you because they are to busy killing each other. It’s sad but true… This White Cracker Zimmerman needs eternal damnation in jail. Let the jury inside those walls really show him what gang affiliation is all about. At this point White is going to be Black for the day of his sentencing.. Go Kill yourself Zim Boy…. Lol

  4. THE FUNERAL DIRECTOR LIED:

    “MIAMI (CBS4) – The funeral director who prepared Trayvon Martin’s body for the memorial service is challenging George Zimmerman’s story that the Martin and Zimmerman got in an intense physical fight before Zimmerman shot and killed the 17-year-old:

    In dressing the body we could see no physical signs he had been in a fight or a scuffle. That is something we would have had to cover up had it been there.”
    said RICHARD KURTZ of Roy Mizell and Kurtz Funeral Home in Fort Lauderdale.

  5. It’s about darn time SOMEONE started reporting on this case using photos that don’t make Martin out to be a little cherub. Thank you FOX.

  6. A stinking, ugly statement:

    “Let the jury inside those walls really show him what gang affiliation is all about.”

    JackieO, I wish Zimmermann had taken a pass on patrolling the neighborhood that night, and that he had stayed in his vehicle. I wish there were something I could offer up to help your pain, something that wouldn’t trouble my conscience such as giving the mob a sacrifice, which the quote above seems to indicate is what would suffice.

    There’s going to be a riot whether George Zimmermann is condemned to the “jury inside those walls”, or whether he goes free–right? Rioting after a not guilty verdict would probably be met with shrugs, return fire, and an attitude of “It was bound to happen.”

    Rioting after a Not Guilty verdict would be viewed entirely differently. I predict that if riots happen, despite a Guilty verdict, white people will decide that enough is enough. It will be the end of the indulgence that has been shown black folk for the truly stratospheric levels of criminality which is so very damaging to peace and stability in this country. The money’s running out. The country is 14 Trillion dollars in debt, and there will be adjustments made. White people are going to be divided into the soft, and the hard. The soft ones you know well, you have had them to look out for you, and be nice to you, and give you things.

    But let the blacks throw a temper tantrum, even if they get the verdict they want, and all bets are off. You will see a division amongst the white people in this country, and the hard ones will decide that they have no more interest in the opinion of the soft ones. Many blacks will not stop to think, will mindlessly injure whites who previously were in the soft camp, and they will come to the conclusion that it is time to be hard. Many of us have no use for the soft whites, but were willing to go along for the sake of peace and order. If blacks demonstrate that peace and order can not be had at any price, white people will surprise you. The world has wolves, sheep, and sheepdogs–which of the three would you find to be the most admirable, I wonder?

    One last, sad, thing–a wolf got one of the sheepdogs, one who had earned some peace in his life:

    Couple met and married within a month and stayed together for 65 years… only to be parted after home invader beat wife to death

    Elderly Tulsa Attack Victim, Bob Strait, Dies Friday

    Fall down on your knees, tonight, and thank the God that made you that white people don’t whip themselves up into a frenzy over stupid, unforgivable crimes like the one detailed above. We’re not like that–someone has to keep civilization going.

    Although there might be ways to make it go more smoothly.

  7. Will no one comment on the obvious? Travon Martin was afraid for his life because he was being stalked by an aggressive stranger with a hand gun. This tragic act of violence is a direct result of the aggressive pursuit and confrontation by George Zimmerman. In any other state of the union George Zimmerman would be charged with felony menacing with a fire arm,stalking,reckless endangerment with a fire arm, and vigilante-ism.

  8. George Zimmermann was in his own neighborhood. You’re really going to hate watching how the trial unfolds. You are really going to hate learning the actual relavant points of law.

  9. Dammit, “Rioting after a Not Guilty verdict” should read “Rioting after a Guilty verdict. Nothing spoils a good rant like sloppy proofreading. I sort of expect rioting after a not guilty verdict, duh.

  10. #49 you’re an idiot.
    for those charges he had to have been waving the gun around and no_limit_nigga needed to have known he had a weapon.
    add in the fact zimmerman was walking back to his vehicle after losing sight of him and the threat would not have been there anyways.

    a punk casing houses in a gated community that was NOT the one he was staying in got caught, tried to tough his way out of it, and failed.
    sucks being him.

  11. “..Travon Martin was afraid for his life because he was being stalked by an aggressive stranger with a hand..” but not afraid enough to go back to the condo he was at earlier. he was expected back at that condo so there’s no issue of not knowing if anyone was home to open the door.

  12. I’m surprised to see a recent picture of Trayvon. Usually they show one of him before he became a thug. For a while I thought they’d revert to a baby picture to make him look more innocent.

  13. Daniel Arceley

    You Assume a little too much.

    Zimmermans permit is for a

    Concealed firearm, he was not running around waving it like a flashlight. I’ll wait for the trial. Two words for ya,
    Jury nullification

  14. What is becoming abundantly clear is how Team Skittles assembled a team of lawyers and media savvy operators withing two weeks and immediately floated all sorts of manipulated or outright incorrect information to push a specific narrative designed to whip up public support and make a civil suit easier. Unfortunately there are too many people who heard these lies and distortions but have not paid attention to further information like this which strongly indicater Zimmerman was telling the truth. What settles this for me is not what these reports indicate. I look at an overhead of the apartment complex and note the three main points of interest—the clubhouse, Green’s apartment, and the altercation scene. If Martin were merely trying to get back to the apartment, he had several ways to do so without ending up at the scene of the altercation which was at the opposite end of the townhomes from Green’s. There are only two ways he could have ended up there in a fight—if Zimmerman dragged him back there which is unlikely given the size difference or Martin went to that area and confronted Zimmerman–which is what his statement has indicated. Reasonable doubt.

  15. @Mike James. Zimmerman wasn’t ‘on patrol’. He was running an errand to Target when he spotted someone suspicious.
    @Daniel Arcelay there is zero evidence that Zimmerman stalked or attacked Martin in any way. I challenge you to find an overhead of the apartment complex and note where the clubhouse is, Green’s apartment, and where the fight took place (witness ‘John’s’ apartment). Tell me how can someone trying to get back to the apartment from the clubhouse end up in a fight at the right angle of those three places well away from a trajectory which would have easily taken them home? The prosecution is going to have a helluva time explaining that with any coherence.

  16. What’s beautiful about this story is how the facts just keep trickling out, slowly, in defiance of everything being claimed by the race baiters.
    Sharpton must be slapping his forehead in the mirror every morning now.

    “Again?!!”

    more whites are on welfare than blacks..

    Not sure what you meant by that. There are more than five times as many whites in America as blacks (72% of pop vs 13%), so no surprise that more whites are on welfare.

    here are some stats I just pulled on a Google search:

    Among the poorest of the poor–single mothers, living below thepoverty line with minor children to support 39.7 percent of AFDC clients are Black single mothers and 38.1 percent are White women with children. Food stamp recipients are 37.2 percent Black and 46.2 percent White. Medicaid benefits are paid to 27.5 percent Black recipients compared to 48.5 percent White clients.

    Now, just using those as rough numbers, and assuming the real numbers can’t be too far off, let’s put it in the proper perspective.
    Food stamps 37.2% black, 46.2% white
    So the 72% ethnicity uses 46% of the food stamps, and the 13% ethnicity uses 37%.
    We make up 5.5 times more of the population, but use only 1.25 times more food stamps.
    Therefore, blacks use food stamps 4 times more than whites do.

    Blacks use more welfare, percentage-wise.
    Simple numbers.
    But see how easy it is to manipulate statistics with statements like “whites use more welfare than blacks”? It doesn’t quite tell the real story.

    This isn’t for bg, but for anybody bad with numbers or understanding percentages, try this example:

    10 men on a construction project, 7 white, 3 black.
    All 3 black men are doing nothing all day long, along with 4 of the white men.
    The remaining 3 white men are doing all the work.
    One could easily twist out a statistic that “more white people than black people on the crew do nothing all day”.
    But a clearer picture of the situation would be revealed by the statement “3/7 of the white workers do nothing all day, but 100% of the black workers do nothing all day.”
