Doesn't matter. His injuries don't need to be significant. Zimmerman had a reasonable fear of serious bodily injury and had the right to protect himself up to and including killing Trayvon Martin under FL 776.012.
The focus on Zimmerman's head injuries or lack of injuries is all smoke and mirrors by the prosecution.

I agree. How many times does someone have to be hit anyways to charge another with assault....oh yea, just ONCE. Georgie legally defended himself.

Following Trayvon was not against the law either. Zimmerman was just doing what the Sanford Police trained him to do as neighborhood watch captain.

In fact the only crime committed that night was when Trayvon attacked Zimmerman.

Insignificant injuries...

Stalking a teenager..

Breaking the rules of the Neighborhood watch as set forth by the police department NHW organizer.

Not listening to the 911 operator.

Zimmerman will be found guilty.

Toting around a loaded pistol with one in the chamber..

Murdering an unarmed teen.

History of violence...

Zimmerman will definitely be found guilty.

It's quite a coincidence(sarcasm) that a 'slim jim' was found in the bushes near where Trayvon was hiding on the night of the shooting. Trayvon was known to break into cars and was actually suspended from school for possession of burglary tools. That was just one of his THREE suspensions from school.

I usually stick to facts and try not to speculate, but I wonder how many people Trayvon killed or tried to kill before Mr. Zimmerman. It's just the way Trayvon so matter of factly said to Zimmerman "You're going to die tonight'. Someone who outright says something like that probably said it at least once before to someone else.

The sad thing is Zimmerman was within his rights to shoot Trayvon after the punch in the nose. He tried to get Trayvon to stop by reasoning with him, but ultimately was forced to defend himself.

Maybe Zimmerman should have waited until he was dead before he defended himself from trayvon Martin's vicious ambush. Then there would be no doubt in anyone's mind that it was self defense and therefore a case justifiable homicide.

No wait..... that won't work.

He got his azz kicked. But I agree, he didn't appear to be hurt that bad. He shouldn't have been following Trayvon. He should have stayed in the truck. This could have all been avoided.

Why didn't he use his fists to defend himself? Cause he's a coward.

Were Trayvon's hands registered as lethel weapons? Was he a black belt karate? or taewondo if not zimmies guilty of murder.

I'm quite sure Zimmerman never had the opportunity to exchange pleasantries with Trayvon to ask him. Maybe if Trayvon didn't sucker punch Zimmerman he would have had the chance to ask.

Doesn't make it murder. If you press murder 2 on someone, you'll need more than that to get a conviction.

Trayvon was on top of him punching him, the blood would have went in the other direction,...blood would have been on the ground,..blood or even a scare would have been on Trayvon's hand,..Trayvon fingerprints was not on the gun,..and Zimmerman came into the police station with not a mark on him, but the next day,..the cuts bleed in the wrong direction,..dam,..the cops are so dum,..so racist and so dumb,..lololol

State's witness Alexis Francisco Carter Jr

“You don’t have to wait until you’re almost dead until you can defend yourself?” West asked.

“No, I would advise you probably don’t do that,” Carter replied.

That response prompted several seconds of laughter from the usually-emotionless Zimmerman before he was able to look downward to regain his composure.

Alexis Francisco Carter Jr is a black man and was called as a witness for the prosecution and actually said to George Zimmerman 'How are you doing George" when he was asked if he saw George in the courtroom.

I wonder what Zimmerman really feels, he didn't even look up when the gun analyst presented her knowledge about the gun and clothing. I know some of the things or maybe most of the things he did was not illegal, but how do you go on not feeling bad that someone lost somebody, he wasn't just a suspect to the people he know he was a son, a brother, a friend to someone, I guess that's what I would want to know from him. His lack of empathy definitely makes me feel he didn't see the teenager as nothing more than a suspect.
