From ABC News: A medical report compiled by the family physician of accused Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation.
Zimmerman faces a second degree murder charge for the Feb. 26
shooting that left the unarmed 17-year-old high school junior dead.
Zimmerman has claimed self defense in what he described as a life and
death struggle that Martin initiated by accosting him, punching him in
the face, then repeatedly bashing his head into the pavement....
The record shows that Zimmerman also suffered bruising in the upper lip
and cheek and lower back pain. The two lacerations on the back of his
head, one of them nearly an inch long, the other about a quarter-inch
long, were first revealed in photos obtained exclusively by ABC News
I think Zimmerman could have handled things better that night, along with Trayvon Martin, but once you start injuring someone so badly in a fight that you break a guy's nose, all bets are off and it's a fight to the finish, or in this case, to the death.
But this case will be politicized, especially those on the left because they have already invested a great deal of political capital already, so they really cannot back down without looking like fools.
Because Obama and Eric Holder have already committed themselves to Martin's sides, they do anything to get a conviction, even if it is not justified.
This case reminds me of the case in Pahrump that is ongoing in the court system. You had a daughter of a man thrown in jail for domestic violence. She calls her young boyfriend to go to her and her dad's house to get clothes and her car. The father says to the boy that the boy should not come to the dad's house and they communicate this through Facebook and the idiot kid still went to the house, totally uninvited.. It was made quite clear that the boy should never have gone to the dad's house, but the boy went to the dad's house and then refused to leave, even after the father fired a gun shot at the kid's car. After the warnings, the father went to the kid's car and shot the kid to death.
Like Martin, the kid was head strong and didn't want to listen to other people and because both Martin and the boyfriend decided to fight it out, they are both now dead, with both adults facing murder charges.
So, it will be interesting to see how this plays out, but in the end, you have 4 families that are ruined- Martin and Zoimmerman and the father and the boyfriend and all over stupid reasons.
