(ABC)   George Zimmerman on video after the shooting. Funny, those massive head injuries seem to have healed fast, and where's all the blood that should have stained his shirt from shooting someone who was on top of him?   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 1167

Threadslayer: Thunderpipes: eraser8: Thunderpipes: Police reports and evidence. Unlike the liberal morons who base everything off crying and wah wah and guilt.

The police report -- other than recording Zimmerman's claims -- had nothing in it that would tend to justify your accusation against Martin.

So, what is this "evidence" that you have?

Zimmerman's statement, his injuries, and eye witness testimoney. What is your evidence that NO_LIMIT_* was a perfect little angel? Oh, nothing but speculation?

At first glance, lack of visible physical injury might SEEM like fact or evidence. But it's not. Thunderpipes will now explain why....


Don't forget he had to throw the "No Limit" part in there.

Because that helps reinforce the narrative that Martin was nothing but a delinquent thug and that Zimmerman did a service to the community by shooting him.

But they're in no way racist...

So treat him like Trayvon Martin?

I do. Bring it on. But they still need to arrest him first.

You know, maybe perhaps Zimmerman received some on-scene medical treatment to fix the cuts on the back of his head and blood-stained clothes were removed for evidence and permitted to change before being taken into custody?

Blood-stained clothes are not going to be kept on a person for chance of evidence or sanitation purposes. Why would someone continue to wear blood-stained clothes for THEIR own and the cops own safety from bodily fluids.

But CSI: Fark has already decided Zimmerman is guilty.

I think that this situation is bullshiat. That said, a lot of stuff people are saying about Zimmerman isn't true, and even if this is murder (I believe it's manslaughter at least) if you think you can make out whether he's hurt or not from that grainy video, you're a liar. I don't give a shiat if you watched it on CNN HD. So did I, and just because it says "HD" doesn't magically make the grainy surveillance video higher resolution. You can't tell from that video and if you think you can, your mind is playing tricks on you. The guy should be tried for manslaughter but you armchair quarterbacks don't know any better than anyone else at this point for sure.

TheAgeOfEgos: I don't know the facts yet (Nor does anyone really)--but I worked ER for a number of years--and typically when someone showed up, they had already been treated at scene by first responders. One, cops don't like blood in their seat, two cops don't like lawsuits about possible concussions not treated/inspect at scene and three until you know someone's guilt it's the right thing to do (treat/triage).

The cop looks at the back of his head for a moment, which could have easily been cleaned/coagulated dark by that time and not show up on this video.

Still, he certainly does not look as rough as the descriptions--so guess back to waiting for more evidence/facts.


And as a card carrying latino, I really do not show bruises that easily when first injured.

But now that my status has been upgraded to white, i expect that to change.
 
2012-03-28 10:13:31 PM
For a guy who had only minutes before engaged in a violent physical altercation to the extent he was in fear of his life you'd think his shirt would at least not be tucked in.
 
2012-03-28 10:13:34 PM
Here's my question. Why does it matter if he was attacked or not? Are you telling me that, in Florida, if I'm being followed and chased by a large man,with a gun, and approaches me. I then defend myself with my fists, and he shoots and kills me, that he is innocent of all charges and it's my fault.

I honestly just can't see how anyone can defend zimmerman here... i've been truly trying, but I just can't see it what so ever.

Well there's two problems right there.

robsul82: Doesn't seem to be any grass stains on his clothes either. I can believe in EMTs with healing powers +15, I'm not sure if I believe EMTs come equipped with club soda.


Yeah, that's the part that bothers me about the video. Can't really tell if the nose is broke. There is some kind of black line on the back of his head that could be a cut or a crappy shave job. But, where are the grass stains? There is no doubt they aren't present in the video.

The other part that bothers me is the lackadaisical attitude. You're escorting a prisoner who just shot someone for farks sake take your hands out of your damn pocket Officer Fatso!

Definitively gives a lot of credence to the idea the Sanford PD is incompetent.
 
2012-03-28 10:15:12 PM
can anyone hold the police accountable?

What has to happen here to make the police wake up and do the right thing?

Shouldn't it just come naturally for the cops to enforce the laws that they themselves claim to have some holy reverence for?

Do some really bad things have to happen for these cops to change their ways?

And honestly, if they are going to lie about something as basic as serious injuries, can't they get their lie together better than this? Shouldn't these liars know that the cameras are right over their heads? Nothing worse than a stupid liar. if you're gonna lie, at least tell a smart lie; make me feel like you care enough to lie well. If you lie stupid I just have to assume you want to get caught.

Since the point of 'Justice For Trayvon' is try Zimmerman in a court of law, I agree.

jackiepaper: 9beers: New thread!!!!!! Hahaha this shiat is awesome. Somebody call Florida and tell them not to bother with a grand jury because Fark has this shiat all figured out.

George Zimmerman has not been charged with a crime because there is not evidence that he committed any.

Fark makes money based on page views, right?

god youre farking stupid. criminally obtuse. you have never, ever added anything of substance to any thread here, and exist solely as a shill for the authoritarian right wing. fark off.


You're at least 95% correct. However, I did agree w/ him once, I believe drunkenly on a weekend sports thread (possibly a main thread), and maybe one other occasion. So, see he isn't always a troll.

you've never seen a mug shot thread I guess, the clothes Zimmerman is wearing are consistent with the clothes described in the police report and no, the police don't let you go home and change first
 
2012-03-28 10:16:18 PM
Well that's not going to help him in court.
 
2012-03-28 10:16:39 PM
At around the 50 second mark the police officer starts looking at the back of his head and if you look closely when he starts walking away (around the 1:06 mark) there does appear what could be a contusion on the back of his head. The video is too far back to show anything though and I love how the ABC logo is placed directly over his face. But thank you for posting the youtube link without the horribly placed banners. Also do people not realize this video is not exactly right after the altercation? I would think there was an ambulance to come check him out and clean him up before that took him away.

This is my issue with the video. Unless we are to throw out two eyewitness testimonies that the two were scuffling in the grass, there is something off.

His defense is based entirely on the assumption that he was attacked, which no longer seems possible given the evidence. He claims he sustained injuries he doesn't have.

The amount to which some people are willing to extend him the benefit of the doubt, in the face of evidence of his obvious lies, is absurd. He lied about his injuries, which means he lied about being attacked, which means he murdered Trayvon Martin.

Cleaned up by the cops or not, I expect massive dark spots on his shirt at the very least.

I'm sure plenty of people here have been in fights. I have too, and never did I feel my life was threatened, but gashes on the head and a broken nose bleed profusely when they happen.
 
2012-03-28 10:18:37 PM
I might mention this... according to the ABC timeline, Zimmerman was not arrested, nor given a drug/alcohol test. Also, according to my own eyes, he had no blood.... as in -at all.- However, this video looks a bit dated, and would that video be considered EVIDENCE? As in it would not be handy to the media?

/hope this covers it.
/oh, link to the timeline: Link (new window)

fredklein: ElBarto79: Let's be very clear, at no point did anyone tell Zimmerman to stop, no one told him to return to his car, no one told him "don't do that". What the police dispatcher said, verbatim, was "we don't need you to do that". It's the difference between a suggestion, and a specific instruction.

When a cop says "May I have your license and registration, please?", do you honestly think that's not a demand?

This just in: people in power sometimes phrase orders as requests.


You can always try "no thank you" but there will be a follow up to that request which is far more direct. Asking nicely is just a personal touch of that individual. It also depends on what you did too. If you got pulled over for going 70 MPH in a school zone there will not be a "please" involved. The same cop can ask politely if you will consent to a search of your vehicle but THAT is not an order. You can (and I have) say "no"

THIS. People are talking about on-site medical attention like there's a holy grail from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in the back of every ambulance. If he was treated for head wounds, he would have bandages.

I think Zimmerman is guilty of some crime at least, but that said, please point out which of those 240p pixels indicate he doesn't have injuries. I can barely make out he has an eye color let alone if there is a cut head or bent nose with blood. Please, post a screen shot of some jagged pixels and try to say that's straight.

Justice needs to be done but getting all excited and making shiat up isn't helping.

SithLord: You know, maybe perhaps Zimmerman received some on-scene medical treatment to fix the cuts on the back of his head and blood-stained clothes were removed for evidence and permitted to change before being taken into custody?


He was treated at the scene. Severe injuries do not just disappear after first aid is applied. Treatment of injuries often involved bandages. No visible injuries, no bandages. He claims to have been hit so hard with one punch it knocked him on to his ass. He claims his head was then bashed into the sidewalk. Injuries of that nature would likely leave a mark. The point of contention is not that he suffered any injuries at all. From everything known it seems there was indeed a scuffle. The issue is that the extent of the injuries is not what he (or technically, his lawyer) has claimed.

The clothes he is wearing are consistent with the accounts of what he was wearing at the time of the incident. Unless the police arrived on the scene with a fresh new shirt and red jacket for him to wear those are the clothes he was wearing.
 
2012-03-28 10:21:26 PM

Warthog: His nose does look broken to me, and in one of those screen shots you can see scrapes on the back of his head.


You suppose they changed his shirt to a clean one? Or that he somehow managed to get a broken nose that doesn't bleed and kept his shirt clean?

FTFA: The security camera footage shot inside the police station directly contradicts a police report written that night.

"I could observe his back appeared to be wet and was covered in grass, as if he had been laying on his back on the ground," Officer Timothy Smith wrote after the shooting Feb. 26.

"Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and back of his head," the officer wrote.


Any questions? Anyone? Bueller?

It does nothing to help his claim of self defense at all. He is probably crapping his pants right about now.
