Yeah, somebody else pointed out that the gun recoiling motion could be responsible for Zimmerman's nose injury as he was so close to Martin.
Zimmerman said Martin used both of his hands to pinch George's nose and cover his mouth when he shot Trayvon. If he's telling the truth we expect to find blood from Zimmerman's nose on Martin's hands and clothing. If no trace of blood is found on Martin's hands and sleeves, gun recoiling maybe responsible for Zimmerman's broken nose, not a punch to the nose as we've been led to believe...
but that night it had been raining,trayvon was face down in the grass with his hands under him...look at the pictures. also george was wet on his back and seat of his pants..which means he was on the bottom. if it was grorge's gun that broke his nose...why is there no blood on the gun? and why didnt george have gun powder on his face?

Chill my n**ga!...I ain't no racist. You don't even know me....But what I know about you is that you hate George Zimmerman because he represents authority,...and he defended himself against a vicious brutal attack by a black man,...and he shot the kid. But what you hate most about him is because he's white, or else you wouldn't be throwing an innocent man under the bus.

An innocent man who is STILL fighting for his life.

If you want your childeren to be safe then pray reverend,...but don't call an innocent man a murderer,...don't you think he has suffered enough?

Because the gun didn't hit his face. Some are going to dispute any evidence and witness testimony. It's kind of pathetic.

Probably did more to hurt the prosecution. Reminding the jury once again that the lead Detective said he believed Zimmerman but to forget that ever happened. I don't think they will forget.

This case is a perfect example why the judicial system is no longer working the way it was intended. EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has read this story had their minds made up instantly. On one side he is guilty without a doubt. On the other side he is not guilty without a doubt.

Whichever side you are on, you made your mind up right out of the gate, one way or the other, with ABSOLUTELY no evidence either way. Admit it. I know I did. How can anyone get a fair trial these days with all of the technology that we have. All the jurors were bombarded with this shit from day.

If it is based solely on the evidence, Zimmerman is NOT GUILTY by reason of self-defense.

I won't argue with anybody about, because you all know I'm right.

Lets see. No evidence Zimmerman chased down the athletic football player. Witness identified Zimmerman being assaulted and screaming help. No injuries other than a gunshot wound and scraped knuckles on Martin. Investigator said he believed Zimmerman's statement. More than enough reasonable doubt and we haven't even got to the defense witnesses.
well the scraped knuckles could be because of having forgotten his high heel platform shoes and naturally the knuckles will hang low

Not many black shuffling down the Cowboy, but a hell of a lot of Japanese, Chinese and a few cheap charlie Indians. Prices still going up for short times, which tends to keep the cheap charlies away, to the sub-soi's. Suk 13 suk 5 suk 3 and the free-lancers.
Agree, racism is very popular here, hell the north hates the east the east hate the bangkok folks the bangkok folks hate them all and the folks in the far south aren't even human. Damn I love it here. Being white, I'm a minority here but for the most part they love me..........or my money! Either way makes no difference to me, as long as I get what I want, when I want it.

Hey coward I'm with Kenny D. 21 years military 31/2 years vietnam, did in a bunch, in Laos and Cambodia too and happy, happy to have served. Don't work, white, I rely on dip-shits like you to get a job, pay your taxes and SS, so that I can spend every dime of it on fun and games. You on the other hand are another liberal socialist tree hugger that wants to or has to turn the other cheek. First off try getting out of America for a few years and see just how the rest of the world thinks and operates. There's a whole bunch of people that should not be walking this earth and that black teenage hotshot was just one, he got what he deserved. Zimm walks and one more thug is off the streets. Win/Win

The progressives that are in power has expanded the potential use of those drones to include American citizens. The cowards start in the White House. That bastion of freedom. Also, Obama has agreed to with his Homeland Security fuhrette Napolitano and the ones who pull the strings on the comittees to allow 15 thousand Russian troops on our soil in case there are any problems. They are supposedly here now. They will have no problem shooting Americans. They are traitors in Washington. And many are controlled by others.
