<quoted text>A medical examiner who looked at the photographs and records of George Zimmerman said the injuries to the neighborhood watch volunteer were insignificant. Zimmerman has given several versions of the events of that night. Which version was it?
Perhaps the biggest contradiction is Zimmerman’s claim that he was repeatedly beaten by Martin. Zimmerman has said his head was struck against the concrete sidewalk by Martin who rained a series of blows — more than two dozen in one account — on the volunteer.
Photographs show that Zimmerman had a bloody nose and two lacerations to the back of his head — wounds that the prosecution has insisted are too minor to have come from a severe attack by Martin.
The wounds displayed on Zimmerman’s head and face were “consistent with one strike, two injuries at one time,” she testified.“The injuries were not life-threatening,” she said, adding they were “very insignificant.”
Zimmerman had an owie.
Zimmerman had an owie.
Zimmerman had an owie.
The question is not how severe Zimmerman's injuries were after the fact, the question is whether Zimmerman felt at the time his life was in danger there captain denial!

Zimmerman moved to Florida in 2001, and he enrolled in Seminole State College in 2003, pursuing a vocational certificate to become an insurance agent.
Down South, he had his own brushes with the law. In 2005, he was arrested for assaulting a cop and resisting arrest. He avoided conviction by entering a pretrial-diversion program.
That same year, his ex-fiancée, Veronica Zuazo, filed a restraining order against him, claiming he had been near her home “just checking up” on her. When she demanded that he leave, he allegedly grew violent, pushing her, according to the Miami Herald.
In 2008, he explained away his arrest on an enrollment application to a citizen’s law-enforcement academy program at the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
“I was in an altercation with an undercover officer that was taking part in an ATF sting for underage drinking in UCF [University of Central Florida],” Zimmerman wrote, according to documents obtained by The Post.
“He never told me he was an officer and assaulted me first.
“My father is a retired magistrate judge for the Supreme Court of Virginia and my mother was a deputy clerk of court for over 20 years,” he wrote.“I hold law-enforcement officers in the highest regard as I hope one day to become one.”
Irrelevant!

<quoted text>They teach to shoot center of mass!
The reason...the adrenaline of someone who is coming at you with the intent to commit grave bodily damage isn't going to stop with a flesh wound or at the sound of the gun. Small caliber weapons often prove to be ineffective against a perpetrator if they are high on something and have their adrenaline pumping.
There have been cases where several rounds (meaning more than 10)of small caliber ammunition have been pumped into a thug who was hyped on adrenaline and drugs, and he was still coming at police in a highly dangerous manner.
Zimmerman did the right thing!
So--you honestly believe that Zim aimed at center of mass from 2-4 inches and thought he missed?

The man is a liar. A big one.

George Zimmerman has placed at least 46 calls to 911 in the last eight years. In the last year, his calls focused on blacks in his gated community:
April 22, 2011: Reports “black male, 7 to 9 years old with skinny build,” walking around the neighborhood.
Aug. 3, 2011: Calls in a black male he “believes is involved in
recent burglaries in the neighborhood.”
Aug. 6, 2011: Fingers two black teens he thinks “have been burglarizing homes in this area.”
Oct. 1, 2011: Reports two black males, approximately 20 to 30 years old, whom he does not recognize. He says he’s “concerned due to recent burglaries in the area.”
Feb. 2, 2012: Drops dime on a black male because it is “unknown what he is doing.”
Feb. 26: Calls about Trayvon Martin
Hey, we’ve had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there is a real suspicious guy.
Asked by the dispatcher what the suspect looks like, he says:
He looks black .&#8201;.&#8201;. Now he’s coming towards me. He’s got his hand in his waistband.
What should he say....there a white guy...in black skin? MORON

By the way, your last one is exactly the dishonest way CBS or NBC portrayed it!

So to further expose your bias and lies, here is the actual NON EMERGENCY POLICE CALL (not 911)
==========
0:00 Dispatcher: Sanford Police Department. This line is being recorded. This is Sean.

0:05 Zimmerman: Hey, we’ve had some breakins in my neighborhood., and there’s a real suspicious guy, ah, it’s Retreat View Circle,. Um, the best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. This guy looks like he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs or sumpin. It’s raining and he’s just walking around looking about.

0:25 Dispatcher: OK. And this guy, is he white, black or Hispanic?

0:29 Zimmerman: He looks black.
==========

Hey its nice that some real idiots want to change the facts and what really happened in order to "fit" their twisted lies!
So lets look at what you said moron

He struggled to pull the gun out, and fired...it was point blank because the assailant martin was on top of him.

You people have blinders on or are completely blind with desperation to get more gun-control!

Your agenda isn't about truth, justice or the right thing, your agenda is about having gun control!

GREAT POST!
Its funny they keep calling Zimmerman a fat wannabe cop, and a mall cop?
Hmmm, he volunteers his own time to help his community, and people like them make fun of him.
Wonder what these idiots do to help in their community...oh that's right, they are tree-hugging anti-gun types who desire to take away peoples rights!
The best part is, these foolish out of touch nimrods keep calling Zimmerman fat mall cop or whatever (another misrepresentation by the pro thug side) but the reality is he was only 194lbs at the time (only 30 lbs more than Martin), and about 3 - 7 inches shorter than Martin.
I guess when you have no real argument and facts, you make stuff up!
Both the police and medical records have him at 204 pounds. And his fighting instructor today czlled him obese and 'soft' despite over a year's intensive training.

Can't have it both ways folks.

And BTW his instructor also said he wasn't ready for hitting anythkng but the heavy bag because he couldn't control his body and it would be dangerous. Why do we believe that anyone can safely carfy a gun.

Why aren't there any news outlets supporting the findings of the authorities in Florida? Why is there so much media bias in this case?
For the same reasons when blacks kill other blacks in St. Pete (Fl) its news for a day and never again. For the same reason the President that has nothing to do with it decided to give his thoughts. Hearing on local talk radio here that we may be looking at riots. If so imo anyone hurt or killed, the blood is on the hands of nbc and all the hacks that do all they can with race baiting with news edits ect.

Facebook fans of Trayvon's are already calling for riots and the trial is not even over yet. They will destroy anything in their path and feel righteous about it. Scary and very sad.
If you live in an area where riots will most likely happen I would suggest arming and protecting yourself and your family!
Sounds like total bs to me.

<quoted text>You are anti-gun....we get it, we have seen you rant about that over and over!
The constitution does not agree with your philosophy!
Carrying personal protection, is just that...the gun was for personal protection, which is what he used it for. The events leading up to the point in which he used that personal protection, is what is being debated in court now!
What you cannot deny is the fact Zimmerman had a bloody lip, broken nose, cuts on the back of his head, and various contusions, further, you cannot deny what witnesses saw, which was Martin on top of Zimmerman.
Zimmerman was in fear for his life, which authorizes him to use his personal protection to defend himself...the police agreed, as did the county prosecutor.
None of our rights come free of resposibility.

Zimmerman acted irresponsibly by chasing a minimally suspicious kid around with a gun and then engaging and challenging him.

Exactly what motive do you believe Trayvon would have for assaulting him--particularly after fleeing from him?

Thank you , I really think we're in trouble when the government isn't for the people , by the people !!!
NSA thinking it's alright to spy on the very people paying there salaries for their bullshit jobs is only the tip of the iceberg. This case is only one of many to be thrown into the spotlight because these crooks in the government cannot rob an armed public. Take our guns then only the crooks have guns !!!
Oh we are in trouble. I watched a video this afternoon from Rutherford county Tn. I will link it. That fact that this cop did what he did and doesn't have a clue what rights that everyone in this nation have is very troubling. Mind you I know how hard a job cops have but this isn't good on any level.

Hope you are right. I happen to live not to far from Sanford. I can tell you in this area (Tampa St. Pete Clearwater metro) I've seen a few cars that say "Justice for Trayvon" on them. If it happens nbc and every other person that milks this for all its worth owns it. Again I hope it turns out just to be bs or people venting.

Great link and really demonstrates how bad its getting.

The tree-hugging fools here want no one to have guns, want people to allow thugs and suspicious types to have all the rights, and want to ignore the rights of the community to protect and in this case "defend" themselves!

Even Obama tainted this particular case, as was mentioned above.
Pathetic!

What makes you think he fled from Zimmerman...there is no police report of that.

In fact, the testimony of his girlfriend said that Martin claimed a "crazy ass cracker is following me" then she said Zimmerman came up and said "what are you doing around here", then out of the blue the phone drops, and she claims Martin says "get off get off" and the phone went dead!
Funny...she called no one, she notified nobody!

Martin was witnessed on top of Zimmerman assaulting him...hmmm doesn't sound like he was fleeing to me.

You say Zimmerman acted irresponsible???
Based on what?
He was doing what he was supposed to, observe and look for things out of the ordinary, and call the police when he does...THAT'S WHAT A NEIGHBORHOOD WATCHMAN DOES! duhhhh

If martin was "minimally suspicious" why would he flee?
And what evidence or testimony demonstrates what you are saying is true about chasing Martin around with his gun drawn, because that's what you are implying here?

Yikes, the more your side stretches, the more foolish and unbelievable you look!

What is really bad is that is Tn. I lived in Tn. for some time and most in that state are closer to traditionalist. I just found out today that Bill Haslam (gov) put the t.s.a. in a position to patrol Tn. highways. We are quickly turning into mother Russia here.

You didn't hear from Zim the version where he said he thought he missed?

How Trayvon spoke to him, saying 'you've got me' and raised his hands in the air? How Zim straddled him and held his arms spread-eagled?

You missed all that?
