Does this story pass the smell test for you? ONE hit and this man fell, hit his head on CONCRETE and DIED.<quoted text>
But you're assuming something that was never proven. There's no proof Trayvon punched him in the nose or slammed his head repeatedly on the concrete.
Now take a look at this story posted on WESH. A BLACK man was running away from SANFORD police officers and they used a taser on him to get him to stop. The taser caused the man to fall face first on the concrete, the report alleges. The man's attorney says the injuries are not what one would expect from a fall and an internal investigation is underway, even though the new Sanford Police Chief says there is nothing to indicate the man's injuries didn't occur exactly as deputies described.
Is it just me, or does something here not pass the smell test anymore than Zimmerman's tiny nicks to his head, didn't pass the smell test about having his head bashed repeatedly onto the concrete and getting 25 blows to his head?
A double standard is alive and well to this very day in Sanford, Florida.
Father dies 10 days after son punched him, deputies say
A Mississippi father died Wednesday, 10 days after his son punched him in the head and he fell onto the concrete in an International Drive restaurant parking lot, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.
Leonard Harris, 52, died at about 10:15 a.m. at University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, investigators said.
On July 7, Taylor Harris, 21, cursed at his father, pushed him, then grabbed him by the neck and punched him, causing him to fall backward and lose consciousness, witnesses told deputies. The younger man was upset because he had just learned his dad was having an affair, investigators said.
The incident occurred at Dave and Buster's, 8986 International Drive, at about 9:40 p.m.
Taylor Harris, who turned 21 the day of the incident, was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.
Charges could be upgraded depending on a result of an autopsy.
An emergency medical technician who happened to be at the restaurant with her family revived Leonard Harris with chest compressions when his breathing stopped, a sheriff's report states. Her husband, a medic, said the back of Harris' head, his nose and mouth were bleeding.
Leonard Harris initially was treated at Orlando Regional Medical Center, then transferred to the hospital in Mississippi, near his home in Pearl, Miss.
