This is a photo of George Zimmerman taken by a police officer on the night of February 26, 2012. A black and white photocopy of this image was provided by the State in the first Discovery. This high-resolution digital file was finally provided to the defense on October 29, 2012. This image was disclosed in the State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery. In accordance with the updates to our media policy that we published on November 13, we will be making all public documents related to the case available on our website, including the rest of the State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery as soon as we are sure it has been properly redacted according to the Court’s stipulations on protecting information regarding specific witnesses.
Remember this was the same man that ABC described as having “no blood or bruises” after they reviewed a police surveillance video.
The autopsy of Trayvon Martin has revealed two injuries to the young teen – the fatal gunshot wound and bloody knuckles (video below).
WFTV has confirmed that autopsy results show 17-year-old Trayvon Martin had injuries to his knuckles when he died.
The information could support George Zimmerman’s claim that Martin beat him up before Zimmerman shot and killed him.
The autopsy results come as Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara continues to go over other evidence in the case.
O’Mara wouldn’t comment on the autopsy evidence, but WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said it’s better for the defense than it is for the prosecution.
Not only does this bolster Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense, but it deals a terrific blow to the media who has cast the man as guilty from the start.
But there’s more…
Additional medical reports show that Zimmerman had a fractured nose, two black eyes, and cuts on the back of his head the day after the confrontation with Martin.
One has to wonder if this new information will make the FBI rethink their strategy of possibly charging Zimmerman for a hate crime.
On Monday, WTFV had also reported:
Unless hate crime means you hate getting your face pounded into the concrete, the FBI’s pursuit of such a charge would be blind appeasement of race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
Remember a time long ago when people were considered innocent until proven guilty?
Unbelievably, this is still not being investigated as a hate crime.
One mother went on camera (watch video after the jump) to explain that it is the kids who are the real victims here, and that coverage of the Matthew Owens beating has been unfair. You heard that right, coverage has been unfair for those 20 people who beat him with paint cans, brass buckles, and any other weapon they could get their hands on.
Additionally, claims that one of the attackers uttered the phrase, “that’s justice for Trayvon” has been confirmed by another source.
Tonight, an angry mother who lives on the street told News 5′s Blake Brown that the kids who live on Delmar Drive are the real victims.
“Every single day it’s a problem with Mr. Owens concerning our kids,” Lemica Whisenhunt. “All these kids do is shoot basketball. We keep ‘em in the yard. They don’t bother anybody. We’d rather them play basketball than to be around here vandalizing, breaking into people’s homes. We try to bring our kids up the right way and show people that all black kids are not bad.“
Apparently ‘bringing your kids up the right way’ involves a mob assault of an unarmed man over a petty disagreement. Yea, your kids have a shot in hell of growing up the right way. Good luck.
If Zimmerman is acquitted, these events will explode exponentially in number.
The only place where you can read about this attack is in the blogosphere. You will not see it reported at MSNBC, CNN, or Fox. That is, until the blogs force the exposure and the mainstream media tries to play catch up.
Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he’s in critical condition.
According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.
Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.
Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. “It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.” Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass knuckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.”
Police will only say “multiple people” are involved.
What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground,Parker says one of them said “Now thats justice for Trayvon.” Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.
The police are downplaying the Trayvon angle to help quell more violence. The media however, is downplaying it because it isn’t a racist hate crime unless it involves a ‘white hispanic’ man on a black man.
I repeat: No national coverage of this racial hate crime pattern in the media.
Apparently some victims are unworthy, and some hatred and violence is justified.
Is Obama going to say anything? Call at least one of the victims? Attempt to bring calm? Attempt a “Sister Souljah” moment (which could actually benefit him politically) and call out violent black racists?
Apparently not, and the media has decided that’s their preferred political strategy, too.
Just imagine what’s going to happen if he’s acquitted…
George Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bail late Sunday night in what the Associated Press called a “low-key event.” Threats of death from the Twitter lynch mob were anything but low-key.
Here’s a few stellar examples (Warning, poor language) (Another warning, even worse grammar):
Succinct and to the point for @TrizzyTroof_CA:
I would kill George Zimmerman
George Zimmerman Released From Jail 150,000 Bail! WTF! Nigga You Are About To Die, Start Writing Your Will! Justices Has Not Been Served
@Stallionnett101 offered this ingenius insight:
Once u been convicted of a crime & let out on bail u can’t be charged 2x for the same thing so that means sum1 gonna have to kill Zimmerman
That’s called double jeopardy dumba**, and charges aren’t dropped when you’re released on bail.
Incidentally, the Twitter user policy reads:
Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.
I’m certain Twitter will do the right thing and pull those accounts. Right around the twelfth of never.
Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson unavailable for comment…
Ironically, the image (seen below) was released by ABC News, the same group who hastily released video that allegedly showed no marks on Zimmerman’s head – that is, until conservative bloggers enhanced the video to demonstrate otherwise.
ABC News exclusively obtained a graphic photograph of George Zimmerman’s head covered in blood that was taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead. This news comes as Zimmerman is set to go before a judge in a bond hearing on Friday. The picture shows two cuts on the back of Zimmerman’s head with blood trickling down.
Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin on February 26 in a gated Sanford community, claimed he killed Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Martin.
The photograph appears to be the first publicly disclosed piece of evidence that could help support Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense. Sources tell ABC News that investigators have seen the photograph and are aware of the photographer’s story.
Sadly, ABC is still trying to justify their shoddy journalism regarding the video, saying:
Zimmerman was treated at the scene, then transferred to the police station, where his wounds appear to be less visible in surveillance video.
He was treated and cleaned up at the scene, just as the Daily Caller and Breitbart.com were alleging was a possibility from the beginning.
Is there any doubt that new media has eclipsed the main stream media any longer?
Dr. Charles Ogletree, the Harvard Law Professor who has signed up to teach an ‘understanding Obama’ class, has somehow managed to misunderstand the Florida “Stand Your Ground” law, which can be found in some form or another in 33 states. The bottom line?
It’s racist. Naturally. (Video below)
Via the Daily Caller:
Dr. Charles Ogletree, who taught both Barack and Michelle Obama at Harvard Law School, aid during the National Action Network convention Wednesday that the slain teen Trayvon Martin is a “symbol of whats wrong” with America.
Complaining about the Florida “stand your ground” law that may protect Martin’s killer George Zimmerman from prosecution, Ogletree encouraged his audience of activists to imagine the racial tables were turned.
“Just think about changing the race,” Ogletree said. “I want to see the first black man who uses the ‘stand your ground’ defense and see if it works — first white victim of the Stand Your Ground by a black defendant and see if it works.”
Of course, Zimmerman as we have shown, has self-identified as an Hispanic Democrat. But why let the facts stand in the way of a good white on black crime story?
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous was in town on Wednesday for an event called, “Why Me? Racial Profiling in the Wake of the Trayvon Martin Shooting.” He took the opportunity to denounce racial profiling, but then immediately followed the event with some profiling of his own.
Via the Times Union:
Jealous spoke with reporters after the conference, and welcomed the news that George Zimmerman was now being charged with second-degree murder.
But while he may have denounced racial profiling in no uncertain terms when describing the Trayvon Martin shooting, Jealous tossed it around rather casually when describing the Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg.
Jealous added, “We have Mayor Bloomberg jacking up Syrian-Christians thinking that they’re Muslims in New York City because they run a bakery with a Middle Eastern name,” he said, “and jacking up Muslims because they’re Muslims, not because they’re criminals, and throwing young black men up against the wall probably because the police are afraid to go after young white men. Why? Because in New York City there ain’t no poor white men. No poor white people in New York City anymore. Those movies are about the Bronx or Brooklyn. Little Italy is a movie set at this point. And there are very few young rich black men, boys in New York City, walking home from school. And yet they get thrown against the wall, too.”
So Jealous believes that the police will only go after young black men because they’re too afraid to go after young white men – because there are no poor white men in the city. Really? Not one? Aren’t you kind of…. profiling?
Also, noticeably absent from Jealous’ comments was a letter written to the NAACP which killed the media-driven narrative that Zimmerman’s actions were racially motivated. Excerpts from that letter include:
“You will recall the incident of the beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer. The beating sparked outrage in the community but there were very few that stepped up to do anything about it. I would presume the inaction was because of the fact that he was homeless not because he was black. Do you know the individual who stepped up when no one else in the black community would? Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church-goers to get out of church so that he could hand them flyers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??
That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.” — from a letter to Turner Clayton of the Seminole County NAACP written by “a concerned Zimmerman family member”.
But hey, that would ruin the narrative. Jealous is simply continuing the tradition started by his other race-baiting colleagues, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Their motto? Racial profiling for me, but not for thee…
50-Year-Old White Man Beaten Severely by Black Teens in Same Town as Trayvon Martin – Crickets Heard Chirping
Where, oh where, are the professional race-baiters now? Where is the national outcry?
Via Weasel Zippers:
The below story doesn’t mention the victim’s race but another local station’s newscast identifies him as white.
(Orlando Sentinel) — A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two men in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford.
Julius Ricardo Bender, 18, and Yahaziel Isaac Israel, 19, face charges of attempted first-degree murder, burglary with assault or battery and armed burglary.
The victim, a 50-year-old Winter Springs man whose name has not been released, is on life-support at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Deputies were called to the area of Lincoln Street and Beardall Avenue about 6:30 p.m. March 26 to investigate a report of a man being beaten, Seminole County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Heather Smith said.
They found the victim in the woods on the north side of Lincoln Street.
According to arrest affidavits:
A witness told deputies he heard someone screaming for help and saw two men pull the victim from his vehicle. He said he watched as one man held the victim and the other beat him in the head with a hammer.
After they dragged the victim into the woods, the men drove away in his sport utility vehicle, which was later found abandoned about a half-mile away on Garbo Jack Lane.
Divided States claims the attack happened at a very coincidental time:
A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two black teens in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford, Florida, the same city as the Trayvon martin case on the same day when Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and New Black Panther’s leaders rallied to protest a tumped-up racial profiling case with Trayvon Martin.
Making that leap in judgment seems a bit premature, and would make any declaration that the race-baiters fueled this attack no better than the mainstream media. But let’s see how many news outlets actually report this case. I’m taking odds that it will be far less than the Martin case.
At least that’s what the shortened headline on the Mediaite website reads, which I thought was pretty funny…
