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...
Oh what a brilliant deduction you fkn morons1 I don't guess you would mind backing up your "theory" with a single case where a 9mm broke someone nose from the recoil of a single shot and didn't even leave a cut? No? Ithought as much. You fkn idiots need to get a life. A life just like your posterboi TaryBgone now has!

Just so you know; I am a white male ... German heritage .. served my country during the Viet Nam Conflict .. took a bullet for my country .. then served in Federal law Enforcement for Five years ....
What have YOU done for your country ? Anything ???
Ok Hitler you claim you took a bullet for your country. Who cares? My primary goal was assisting that others take a bullet for their warped ideology. Its disgusting to a true warrior to listen to fairy tales. Harden up and suck that gut in mf! If you don't have the balls to stand up for a man that defends himself at least have the dignity to shut your goddamn mouth!

If the worse happens and America becomes a sewer of violence, remember...leave the enemy DEAD! An armed burglar left alive may sue you for what you got left even in a hodge podge police state as corrupted lawyers will be stinking up any remaining justice for their personal gain as you see now in many ways. Know the local laws as a perp shot by you and hanging out the window may not be an excuse for you defend yourself. Drag the prick into the home as an example. You are not the aggressor. But because you are not, the real aggressors have nearly destroyed us. And unfortunately we will all most likely have to pay for it in a much more meaner nation that is poorer.

The recoil form a 9mm is minimal Even a POS kel tec like Zimmerman was carrying has zip for recoil Bareback came up with that ludicrous statement a while back. Anyone that knows even a little bit about guns can debunk this bs .

Zimmerman will be free by the end of the month Hell the defense has had it's case handed to them by an inept prosecutor....he didn't have much to work with though, so he probably did the best he could with the poor case Corey dropped in his lap

I've been profiled several times, and I'm white.
I used to get profiled by the police when I was a young teen in the early 70's with my long hair and army jacket. When I was an adult, I was questioned several times by the project police in Cleveland when I used to deliver medical equipment to patients in the projects. I was suspected of buying drugs.
Ever wonder why Israel never had a bomb planted on one of their planes? It's because they racially profile. If anybody who even looks close to being an Arab goes through their airports, they are pulled out of line, searched up and down along with any kind of luggage they have. Problem solved while our TSA agents are letting Arab people climb aboard and are searching white nuns and grandmothers to be politically correct.
. Profiling saves lives.They should profile at airports Israel does

New York's stop and frisk got a lot of guns off the street. if it takes profiling to do that so be it. What is better, dead people or hurting minorities feelings?

I would lay odds they've already determined the gun position from the entry wound....and direction of travel. Not to mention already looked at powder residue to determine gun location. Traygone supporters have gone from the Z-man chasing him down to shoot him...to holding the the gun in front of his own face. How stupid. Like someone else posted....9mm have minimal kick and recoil.

I've only been able to watch a little each day but I have seen enough to agree with you, Zimmerman will pay for murdering Trayvon.
The convicts are gonna love his fat ass.
He will learn fear, the kind poor Trayvon felt as he was begging for his life.
You obviously live in a warped little hateful racist world of your own. You haven't been watching the same trial as the rest of the country ...not to mention the jurors.

Z-man is gonna walk....and it makes your racist head spin.

Mr. Zimmerman luckily had a 9mm Glock
and The brutal THUG that attacked him is now dead.
It wasn't a Glock. It was a Kel-Tech9 which sells for about half of what a Glock sells for. Id go Glock anyday. The market has been flooded with 9s in the last decade or so. The cartridge is way over rated. Suitable for punishing poodles nothing more. Oh AND thugs jumping out of the bushes on occasion.

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.
There are tens of thousands of American citizens who would venture to take a pot shot at a drone if they saw one.

It was Corey who initiated it. She should be held accountable for malicious prosecution. The prosecution never had a case...even Perry Mason would look foolish. The defense is not very good and the judge is biased which should give the Zimmerman team some concern. Hopefully, the jury isn't filled with those who lack common sense.

Martin immediately went on the defensive in a violent manner when was ASKED what he was doing and attacked Zimmerman, which means (in the way I interpret it) that he was doing something wrong. So Zimmerman was doing his job as Neighborhood watch. And if you disagree with me or even agree with me that is your right but, I ask you this donít get your news from one source! No matter what media outlet it is the will make the story sound in their favor for their political agenda, to be a well rounded citizen you must get both sides and then base your opinion off that!
