There is no question that Martin broke Zimmerman's nose by punching Zimmerman in the face, and then cut the back of Zimmerman's head by banging Zimmerman's head against the concrete. And a witness has already said in testimony that he saw Martin on top of Zimmerman MMA style, "ground and pound."

Yeah, that's Zimmerman's narrative.

Just a couple of problems. How does the defense get that story before the jury without putting Zimmerman on the stand? And then, how did the body end up thirty feet away?

Bodies probably fall backwards after being shot, from the force. I do not know how far Martin fell backwards after being shot. Did Martin stumble backwards after being shot? How far?

And Zimmerman is going to testify on his own behalf.

It sure would have been better if people would have helped Zimmerman when Zimmerman was screaming for "HELP!" Zimmerman needed help. Now a man is dead because no one would help, and Zimmerman was forced to save his own life by killing Trayvon. Fkn pussies were all afraid to help Zimmerman when Zimmerman was screaming for "HELP!"

Another story of a time when no one would help is the chilling tragedy that happened to Kitty Genovese, who was stabbed to death while screaming for "Help!" while a whole building full of people heard her screams and saw her getting stabbed outside of their windows, and no one would help her. That is HORRIBLE. We need to help each other. When you hear your neighobr screaming for help then you need to rise up and help your neighbor.

You think Trayvon fell backwards 30 feet?

And what about all the witnesses who saw a struggle close to where the body ended up?

You start to see the problem with letting Zim testify?

Sadly this whole Trayvon and Zimmerman case also means that men must work in teams of two when patrolling and answering calls as police officers, because two men can handle a guy without shooting him, whereas one guy, or a female officer, might be forced to kill someone. This is bad news for women cops, but it is a sad fact of life that two big strong men can handle a bad guy better than a man alone, or a man and woman team. Women and lone cops are forced to kill a lot of people whom might otherwise be saved.

How far exactly did Travon fall and stumble backwards after being shot? I do not have the exact numbers in front of me.

And Zimmerman should have no problem testifying, all that he has to do is tell the truth.

Everything at the crime scene, and all of the witness acounts, back up what George Zimmerman has said. That is why charges were not immediately filed against Zimmerman, and that is why George Zimmerman will ultimately, and rightfully, walk free.

Not really. Witnesses saw different things and they dont generally agree with Zimmerman's story of being met at the 't' in the sidewalk and knocked down with a single blow. Then there is the lack of Zimmerman's dna on Trayvon.

Martin never got to slam Zimmerman's head on no concrete. Zimmerman accidentally cut his own scalp while putting Martin on an MMA style submissive lock.

Here is a picture showing how Zimmerman got his scalp cuts:

Zimmerman is not an MMA expert. There is no evidence that Zimmerman ever trained in MMA. Everything points to Zimmerman telling the truth pertaining what happened.

You are getting silly now. All of the evidence supports what Zimmerman has stated happened.

Zimmerman added in his Medical records that he'd had been involved with mixed martial arts several times a week.
http://www.baynews9.com/content/news/baynews9...

"A physician assistant who treated George Zimmerman's injuries the day after he said he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense testified Friday that she had treated Zimmerman before, and that he told her he'd had been involved with mixed martial arts several times a week."

Not on purpose; did you look at picture?

_ Come on!
That MMA style submissive lock tactic, if done on a rough surface, should cause abrasions or cuts on the back of the head...

_ It's OK to believe Martin deserved to die, but you don't have to just shut your eyes if it's possible to see how it really happened....

There are many people that are defending Martin "just because" he is black or because they think Zimmerman was racist.
Race bating fools who want to make this something its not!

And with anything race related just as with politics...logic and rationale go right out the window!

I would also say that there are people who live a very sheltered life that don't know about these types of situations, and couldn't fathom the type of feeling or situation being experienced here or in any other urban setting.
These people speak up as if they think they understand the outcome of how things would be if they applied some Mr Rogers neighborhood physiology or the "can't we all just get along" type of thinking.

In some places, it is very much a jungle out there, where the wild can get you very quickly if you are not on guard! People in these areas think and act very differently then in calm, nice and low crime areas that exist in middle America. The entire thought process and method of reacting changes, and has to change if people are to survive in these urban places.

If one doesn't live anywhere near an urban area, and television is the only exposure to urban life...then I suggest you quit commenting here, you have no real understanding of "what time a day" it is!

Zimmerman's own words.
_ Even you, now, is calling Zimmerman a liar!

_ Lindzee Folgate, an Altamonte Family Practice physician assistant who treated Zimmerman Feb. 27, 2012, the day after the shooting, was called to testify on his medical records. Reading a medical history taken Aug. 19, 2011, Folgate testified that due to difficulty sleeping, Zimmerman had "started to exercise intensely with MMA.

Medical record shows Zimmerman had been involved in intense MMA training for at least 7 months before locking Martin in a submissive position just before he eliminating "that f_ckng punk"
