travon's autopsy was released yesterday. it showed injury's on his hands consistent with him striking zimmerman over and over. zimmerman's medical records were released too. they showed he had a broken nose and a back injury consistent with being thrown down on his back. as well as cuts to his head from the sidewalk. so far all the actual records that have been released backup zimmerman's claim of stand your ground.

Sure looks like a good thing for Zimmerman that he had a concealed carry license and was carrying. Probably saved his life. Maybe this will encourage lawmakers to pass concealed carry reciprocation laws and stand your ground laws for all states so law abiding citizens can defend themselves from these lawless criminals. I hope Jackson and Sharpton step forward to appologize and pay for the frivilous prosecution they demanded. Too much to hope for I know. They will just fade into the background until the next chance to play the race card presents itself.

"Maybe this will encourage lawmakers to pass concealed carry reciprocation laws and stand your ground laws for all states so law abiding citizens can defend themselves from these lawless criminals."

I doubt it, but the FL law was in place for a reason - and that reason wasn't that the citizens of Florida are rabid, gun-totin' Wild Westerners.

And naturally, the news of Zimmerman's injuries isn't getting nearly the play as the rabble-rousing headlines which accompanied the death. Also - don't look for Jackson or Sharpton to retract any statements or even soften their rhetoric if the facts bear out Zimmerman's version of the incident.

They will just fade away into the woodwork...until next time...

sebekm commented on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 14:04 PM

...and here's an article on CNN.com which discusses the injuries:

Any rush to judgement is wrong. We must follow due process even if it ends up in jury nullification. (OJ) And the many KKK night riders of the 50's and 60's who walked after butchering black men, women and children. If we do not follow the process, it becomes mob rule.

...and in another report which is BURIED (so far) in the national media, Trayvon Martin's autopsy showed injuries to his KNUCKLES:

http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/a...

gacpl commented on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 20:20 PM

The attorney for Trayvon Martin's parents is calling for the release of all of the documents related to the death of their son, rather than continue what he says are strategic leaks of records intended to benefit the defense of George Zimmerman, who is charged with killing Martin.

Attorney Benjamin Crump said on Wednesday he wants "full transparency" in the case, after several news outlets--including ABC, NBC and CNN--were given access to a sealed medical examiner's report on Martin.

"It was leaked for a beneficial purpose, certainly to help George Zimmerman's claim of self-defense," Crump said. "This report needs to be vetted with a keen eye."

"You have to look at this in the full context," he continued. "George Zimmerman made the decision to get out of his car, profile Trayvon Martin, pursue Trayvon Martin and confront him."

According to NBC News, the multipage autopsy says that Martin was "killed by a penetrating gunshot wound to the chest," with the entrance wound "located on his left chest 17 inches below the head. The single bullet passed directly from the front to the back, through his lungs, creating perforations." The only injuries to Martin are from the gunshot and to one knuckle, "a quarter-inch to one-eighth inch abrasion on the fourth finger in the ring area."

The gunshot wound entrance was from a bullet fired from "intermediate range," or two to four inches, "a soot ring abrasion and a two-inch by two-inch area of stippling" on his body.

Earlier this week, medical records leaked to ABC News showed Zimmerman likely suffered a broken nose, black eyes and an abrasion on the back of head.

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, said he may seek a dismissal of the second degree murder charges against his client under Florida's "stand your ground" law.

gacpl commented on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 20:21 PM

Yep the family is incensed that the records are showing that ZIMMERMAN was injured, and that MARTIN wasnt..they think by releasing all documents the sting will go away.

IMO it will backfire, because as we ve already seen...MARTIN had a gunshot wound, coroner says from inches away and straight through..meaning point blank range..as ZIMMERMAN has stated..SELF DEFENSE. MARTIN also had a minor injury on a finger,probably from the punch to ZIMMERMANs face.

Now ZIMMERMANs injuries have been substantiated, MARTINS injuries prove he wasnt running or being chased. And the evidence once again, points to a confrontation and a life saving gunshot to the attacker.

BTW, yesterday I heard the 911 call from the owoman who said it was happening right outside her window, two men wrestling on the ground, then a shot that she didnt see, but RIGHT OUTSIDE HER WINDOW, where MARTIN would succumb to his injuries.

This case reeks of self defense, the evidence clearly supports it, and nobody can argue that ZIMMERMAN started anything. Fact is, the eveidence, those darn 911 tapes, prove otherwise.

Hes either the smartest WHITE HISPANIC in history, or those tapes were a life saver for him....its all there..."Hes back, hes appraoching me, hes got something in his hands, I cant tell what & hes got his hands in his belt".

Those few sentences are going to get this case tossed, or an acquittal should the judge be too scared to throw the charges out.

Adding the injuries and the g/f statement will just confirm the decision.

Lead investigator cant even tell who started the melee that night...but its clear who had the upper hand, and he got shot for it. Im thinking he sucker punched ZIMMERMAN in the face, got him down and was slamming his head..then went for the gun and got shot for his efforts.

Not a stretch, the evidence and all the statements and tapes and injuries support it

Yes - now it is coming out:

*I wonder how much drugs (reportedly marijuana) are a "trace," as it relates to Martin's autopsy results?

*I had a hunch that there was at least one witness who would come out in favor of Zimmerman's version. If the witness had seen it the other way, it would have been known and sensationalized from the beginning.

*I first noticed the steam going out of the media hype when the first pictures came out of Zimmerman that clearly showed that he DIDN'T look like ROMNEY'S SON. In fact - in some photos he doesn't even look like a "white man," despite his name. See especially the side-by-side photos of Zimmerman and Martin here:

http://abcnews.go.com/US/cops-witness...

Because of this, he didn't fit the media/activists' stereotype of "white-male-racist-oppression-of-the-minorities." That made the story less "sellable."

I still agree with comments that but for Zimmerman playying armed law enforcement the incident (the shooting part, that is) probably wouldn't have happened. But without the weapon, I wonder if we'd have MARTIN up on charges for an assault on Zimmerman (or at least both of them for disturbing the peace or assault/battery on each other). I'd prefer that to a death, that's for sure.

lholmes commented on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 21:28 PM

well, like I said before in a previous blog about this, I just couldn't jump on the bandwagon like most other African Americans I know. I watched coverage on CNN, MSNBC and FOX. FOX was the only one that played the entire 911 call, and when I heard the entire thing, I came to the conclusion that Martin was attacked and it was self defense. I took a beating on that. I was also dubious when I saw Sharpton and others marching. It reminded me too much of the other fiascos they were involved in and then backfired. Fool me once...! I feel for everyone involved, but it looks like "Z" is going home, and probably with a lot of money from the state of Fla.

gacpl commented on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 22:17 PM

the amazing thing with fox, is the liberals call it faux news when they show the whole story and don't edit it for content like the other networks do. yet the other networks put spin on everything. they are now trying to spin the whole martin thing on " it wouldn't have happened if zimmerman didn't get out of the truck" when he did nothing illegal by getting out of his truck. the call he made turned out to be accurate when he said the person looked like they might be on drugs.

Sheran commented on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 23:58 PM

Zimmerman is innocent.

Thinker commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Speak ye not so fast, a jury will decide. This case will be important to society's future social conduct, the ruling will set the tone for social conduct. Looks rough for Zimmerman foes, but the media is running the show, just have to wait and see. A long way to go, a fist fight, ends in a death by gunshot, an encounter by a gun carrying person, more likely feeling they are up to any challenge, "cause I have my gun", unarmed person walking home minding his own business, but based on profile, he is approached by gun carrying, non-complient to police authority citizen. Sounds like an interesting case, from my view, a youth unarmed. Should of followed the rules of the Block watch program and listened to orders from authority. fist fight vs gun, not the right amount of force needed to control the situation. Travyon was still the victim, he was defended himself from a stalker. We teach our young people about interactions with strangers, this is a dangerous society. I admit looking good for Zimmerman now, but in the court, argued, for a juror to decide, still a case for excessive and contributing to murder.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 13:00 PM

OK...I'll play even after blogging to let the process play out and see what happens.

I say the Z man will end up with a manslaughter charge, probably involuntary and be convicted. His sentence though will be light 1-2 years with time off for good behaviour and end up serving 6-8 months.

Any other thoughts?

sebekm commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 13:44 PM

I agree with the manslaughter charge and the result. My prediction:

If it goes to trial (there will be a lot of pressure from the media and the activists), it will all depend on jury composition - as we saw with O.J. in the Nicole Brown/Ron Goldman criminal trial.

But unlike that trial, Zimmerman probably won't get many sympathetic jurors. Further, he probably won't have a legal "dream team." Finally, the "fool me once" principle will be in full play, and Zimmerman will have to basically prove his innocence rather than the prosecution proving his guilt.

SportsFan31313 commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 17:45 PM

where sharpton and jessie now?

Well today is Saturday. I would guess that the two Mr Jackson, and Mr Sharpton are at home relaxing.

Gun vs Fist is not equal in a fight.

George Zimmerman refused to follow directions from the 911 dispaatcher.

Had he adhered to those directions, Trayvon Martin would have been alive today.

Zimmerman will more than likely be convicted of something........

Besides, if by chance he gets an aquittal, George Zimmerman will forever be in hiding, and on the run from the court of private citizens. He could no longer walk free here in the United States without forever looking over his shoulders.

What a huge price to pay for the Stand Your Ground Law, and a want to be Police Officer who never made the cut to become one.

gacpl commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 17:47 PM

zimmerman will walk and the special prosecutor will be disbarred in Florida for hiding information in order to get the warrant signed by a judge.
zimmerman is the victim. he was made one by the race baiting press and mob brought by sharpton.

Sheran commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 22:34 PM

I agree with gacpl 100%.

If Casey Anthony can walk out "NOT GUILTY", so can Zimmerman!

gacpl commented on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 23:32 PM

and just to say it again for sportsfan31313, 911 operators are NOT police officers and can NOT give orders. even if they could, they didn't tell him not to. they said "we don't need you to do that"

but if you want to play the "if" game. it wouldn't have happened "if"
1 his mom didn't kick him out because she couldn't control him
2 his dad didn't kick him out because he couldn't control him
3 he didn't get suspended for drugs
4 he listened to his 13 year old girlfriend when she told him to run

SportsFan31313 commented on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 11:27 AM

gacpl,

I am quite aware what 911 operators are. But the 911 opeartors were absolutely correct in what they was advising George Zimmerman. And again, Had Georgia Zimmerman did what he was advised to do, Trayvon Martin would be alive today, and George Zimmerman would not been locked up and charged with 2nd Degree Murder. Inaddition to what other believe, the Special Prosecutor will not be disbarred in this case. Furthermore; I say this again, if he is aquitted in this case, George will never be free here in the United States. He will forever have to live his life in hiding, seclusion, forever having to look over his shoulders for fear that he too could end up like Trayvon Martin. You live by the aword, you die by the sword. You can call this race baiting, but I see no race baiting here. I see two parents in despair wanting justice for the murder of their son. It took Mr. Al Sharpton, along with many many others in ALL DIFFERENT RACES to include the President Of The United States to speak out the matter. My question to you is why does it have to be about race? Your far right political views in some of your Blogs indicate somew sort of racial divide or something in the negative light of race. What would be your view if the table was turned the other way, and it was George Zimmerman was the person whom was killed, and Trayvon Martin was the person who shot, and killed George Zimmerman. Would your thoughts be the same? This was tennager whom was shot by a grown man in cold blood. Whatever the case may be, this teenager was unarmed. We have a teenager who was murdered by an over zealous man (which is no secret here) that would not listen to the 911 dispatcher advising him not to follow Trayvon Martin, but to wait until the Police arrive there. What's the harm in that? Surely had he did just that, Trayvon Martin would have been here today, and we all would not blogging on this issue. Not we have teenager whom is dead. The fact of the matter is that Trayvon Martin just happened to be African American.

One thing I do believe, that guilty or not guilty, George Zimmerman would be a fugitive to himself, and will forever be on the run all of the days of his natural life.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 11:39 AM

Yeah, I agree, he will be on the run unless he joins the White Aryan Nation. He's already a skin head.

sebekm commented on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 12:40 PM

Part I:

...and now the prominent liberal lawyer, jurist, and political commentator Alan Dershowitz says that the prosecutor should DROP THE CASE against Zimmerman, because:

"There is, of course, no assurance that the special prosecutor handling the case, State Attorney Angela Corey, will do the right thing. Because until now, her actions have been anything but ethical, lawful and professional.

She was aware when she submitted an affidavit that it did not contain the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. She deliberately withheld evidence that supported Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense. The New York Times has reported that the police had “a full face picture” of Zimmerman, before paramedics treated him, that showed “a bloodied nose.” The prosecutor also had photographic evidence of bruises to the back of his head.

But none of this was included in any affidavit.

Now there is much more extensive medical evidence that would tend to support Zimmerman’s version of events. This version, if true, would establish self-defense EVEN IF ZIMMERMAN HAD IMPROPERLY FOLLOWED, HARASSED, AND PROVOKED MARTIN (emphasis added).

A defendant, under Florida law, loses his “stand your ground” defense if he provoked the encounter — but he retains traditional self-defense if he reasonably believed his life was in danger and his only recourse was to employ deadly force.

Thus, if Zimmerman verbally provoked Martin, but Martin then got on top of Zimmerman and banged his head into the ground, broke his nose, bloodied his eyes and persisted in attacking Zimmerman — and if Zimmerman couldn’t protect himself from further attack except by shooting Martin — he would have the right to do that. (The prosecution has already admitted that it has no evidence that Zimmerman started the actual fight.)

See: http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/dr...

sebekm commented on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Part II:

Now Dershowitz is no legal "lightweight" - that's for sure. According to our friends at wikipedia.com:

"He has spent most of his career at Harvard Law School where in 1967, at the age of 28, he became the youngest full professor of law in its history. Dershowitz has been described by Newsweek magazine as America's "most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights." He was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 1979, and in 1983 received the William O. Douglas First Amendment Award from the Anti-Defamation League for his work on civil rights. As a criminal appellate lawyer, he has won 13 of the 15 murder and attempted murder cases he has handled, and has represented a series of celebrity clients, including Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, and Jim Bakker. His most notable cases include his role in 1984 in overturning the conviction of Claus von Bülow for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny, and as the appellate adviser for the defense in the O.J. Simpson trial in 1995."

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Der...

I don't always agree with his political views, but his legal opinions on just about every prominent legal case in the "news" - articulated during his numerous television appearances - invariably turn out to be correct.

In sum: If Dershowitz says the evidence is so weak that the prosecutor should drop the case, it would probably be the correct thing to do.

sebekm commented on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Part III:

Now having said all that, I believe that the prosecutor knew that the evidence wouldn't support a conviction but charged Zimmerman anyway in an attempt to defuse the "lynch mob" mentality that was prevalent at the time. She made a calculation that to do otherwise would only further inflame the mob; that Zimmerman himself would be much better off if charged with a crime; and that to do so would allow for time to let the whole situation "cool off." It would also allow for the real facts to come out; for witnesses to pop up which support Zimmerman's version of the case; and for legal experts like Dershowitz to go public with the opinion that THERE IS NO CASE.

If that was in fact her calculation, it is playing out exactly as she expected.

Sheran commented on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 19:50 PM

icyman61 commented on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 08:21 AM

The whole story never should have gotten this far, it should have been one paragraph reading

"Local neighborhood watch activist was attacked from behind and beaten while watching suspicious characters in his neighborhood last night. After receiving a broken nose, and multiple contusions, yelling for help with no one coming to his aid. He was compelled to defend himself from his assailant who was sitting on top of him dishing out the severe beating by shooting this thug in the chest killing him. No charges will be filed!"

If you hurt me, or one of my family members, or even some one I dont know in front of me, God help you! Because no one else can, once I get started on you!

You probably arent gonna make it either!

JimmyMack commented on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 16:16 PM

Anarchy in the streets. Maybe bringing in Federal Troops to restore order.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 23:08 PM

Well,

I don't think it will result any anarchy in the streets. There were not any from the beginning. You had a lot of protest, and marches across the nation, and that was with Rev. Al Sharpton, Jessie jackson, actors, actress, music artist, politicians, and many of Trayvon Martin's family and friends.

However; I do believe that there could be vigilantes out there who will be their very own judge jury and executioner. Like I said earlier, George Zimmerman will forever be a fugitive to himself. He could not walk the streets like he had done before this incident. He is hiding now, and it's just like he is incarcerated. He is on house arrest, and even if he was'nt, he could not go anywhere without threats of bodily harm towards him.

Guilty or not guilty he will be guilty in the eyes of a lot of people. I'm not speaking on this issue because of race. I am speaking on the merits of this case. I don't care what gacpl says or his advocates. George Zimmerman was wrong in so many ways, and this entire ordeal could have been avoided if he had just adhered to the directions of the 911 dispatcher. And thats the bottom line because SportsFan31313 says so......

Thats My Opinion Too.....

Just in case gacpl does not know, I am retired both Military Reserves, and Law Enforcement. (Detective) Law Enforcement Personnel know exactly what 911 operators can do and can not do. They give calls for service and provided pertinent information in regards to the calls for service. It would be very wise to listen to the 911 operators. That can the difference betwen life and death. I sure hope gacp knows that.

gacpl commented on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 18:31 PM

it usually would be wise to listen to them. but it can't be used in court that they didn't. so what they told him has no meaning. keep in mind that not everyone that is a 911 operator is someone that you would want to listen too. some live in homeless shelters when not at a 911 desk.

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 20:58 PM

gacpl,

My goodness: Do you depic a person's knowledge or their profession based on where they came from? Who cares if a 911 operator live in a homeless shelter? Why would you care where a 911 operator live? There no correlation between a 911 operator or anyone in a work profession that suggest that one should not listen to them just because they live in a homeless shelter. Come on gacpl, get real. You are beginning not to make any sense. Everybody can tell or advise somebody something for their own good. Since you made the above statement, I must ask you are you a Police Officer? I have NEVER in my natural life heard any Duly appointed law enforcement officer make a statement like the one you made. If any Law Enforcement Officer in Liberty County think like the way you do by your above comments, it would make me seriously wonder. But I don't believe that they do. That was not a wise comment that you have just made. I disagree with you in it's entirety.

Sorry, I should have said the Liberty County Board of Commissioners. I think Lovett is a multi-talented guy but by his employment and taxing position he is tainted with bias. I mean the guy can write plays and all and carry himself well, but I believe and will show soon that he is a shill for LRMC.

Got my tax estimate for 2012 yesterday. Property value went down but LRMC millage went up and deeper into my pocketbook.

My estimate said everything was the same as last year - including the estimated tax. But I agree - everything's a shell game where they lower one thing and raise another so that there's an appearance of cutting taxes (which is trumpeted). But then there's an offsetting new tax or "fee" applied (which is buried in paragraph 8 of the announcement) which makes up the difference and more.

Sooner or later, they'll have to cut spending - at least I hope so.

Yes - and here's some more sand:

Today has been declared "Trayvon Martin Day" with seminar at a Washington, D.C. elementary school "(i)n an effort to better educate students and their parents about race relations and social injustice," and "to send a message to stop the bullying" in the community. Adults who attend the seminar will receive an Arizona Iced Tea, and each student gets a bag of Skittles.

Yeah, that;s the ticket: sugar and caffiene for the attendees. Throw in some 'balanced' rhetoric, find some rope, and we just may get this whole Trayvon Martin thing cleared up.

Police officers aren’t the ones destroying the black community I keep hearing that “violence erupted” in Ferguson, Missouri after a police officer shot an unarmed black man.
