ABC Releases New Photo of Zimmerman’s Bloody Head

A new picture was released by ABC News today that clearly shows George Zimmerman’s head bleeding from the beating issued to him by Trayvon Martin.  The picture was taken only three minutes after Martin was shot and killed.  It clearly shows his head brutally battered with cuts, gashes, and blood all over his head, proving the reason that Trayvon Martin was finally shot in self defense by George Zimmerman.

This picture is finally substantiating what his contention has been all along that Trayvon Martin was bashing his head on the pavement after Martin had already broken Zimmerman’s nose.  Witnesses said that they heard Zimmerman crying for help as Martin had him pinned on the ground, sitting on him and beating the shit out him.

ABC is no doubt releasing this photo begrudgingly since they have been engaged in a campaign to drive an outcome that better fits their agenda to put guns and the self defense laws in a bad light.  The liberal media as a whole has been trying to discount this story from the beginning to make it better fit false claims being waged by Martin’s mother and sympathizers lead by the likes of Louis Farrakhan and Jesse Jackson.  NBC News even went to the extent to doctor a recording of the 9-1-1 call between Zimmerman and the police, to make it sound like he had spoken in a racially biased manner of the suspect he was observing and describing.

The result of the liberally biased reporting has been to paint a picture of Zimmerman as a racist who had chased down Martin and shot him in cold blood simply because he was black and wearing a ‘hoodie’.  Demonstrations sprang up in numerous cities in Florida and across the country demanding the immediate arrest and conviction of George Zimmerman, which was further fodder for the news media to report.  Of course, the general public couldn’t know that there was no evidence to support their calls since the media was hiding that fact and misleading them all.  The demonstrators already had their own biased agenda but would be further bolstered by the media.

But that is no excuse for Jackson and Farrakhan.  As purported “leaders” of the African-American community they should be urging the community to be calm and not be so quick to judge.  Instead they used the story to further their own racist agendas with rhetoric further stirring the masses to a fever pitch that would resemble “lynch mobs” of the nineteenth century.  The “New Black Panther Party” even put out a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman’s head.  Since when is it legal for a supposed political party to offer a bounty for someone, especially when the local district attorney had determined that there was no evidence to support an arrest.  Jesse Jackson is now calling for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws and “castle doctrine” laws that have been so effective in lowering the violent crime rate in Florida.

Now, since the release of the new photo, Martin’s family attorney, Benjamin Crump, suggested that the photo didn’t mean anything because Zimmerman wasn’t brought to a hospital for stitches.  “How bad could it have been if they didn’t take him to the hospital [and] didn’t stitch him up,” he asked.  But then Zimmerman shouldn’t have to wait until he is mortally wounded to take action that would save his own life.  He had every reason to believe that his own life was in danger and he would be justified in pulling the trigger.

In another development, George Zimmerman was granted bail pending a $150,000 bond.  Reportedly, the Martin parents were “completely devastated” that bail was granted.  Zimmerman was not immediately released pending the details of the bail to be worked out and until his attorney can find a suitable safe location for Zimmerman to reside.  Apparently, there have been numerous death threats on Zimmerman and he is in fear for his life.  His attorneys want to be able to guarantee his safe return to the court for trial. 

At the bail hearing, in an unortodox move, Zimmerman offered an apology to the Martin Family saying that he was truly “sorry for the loss of their son”.  The Martins attorney responded to the news media saying that they (the Martins) thought (characteristically) it was insincere and further said, “This was the most disingenuous, insulting thing I’ve ever seen.”

Give me a break!  Seriously?!

There are Serious Problems with the Zimmerman Arrest

I have stayed out of the George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin controversy up until now, but it is just getting too ridiculous and I can’t ignore it anymore.  I mean, this is a man who was simply defending his own life.  If that gun had not gone off when it did, Zimmerman would be the one laying dead – not Martin.

It simply comes down to the fact that Trayvon Martin had George Zimmerman on the ground and was beating the shit out of him as Zimmerman was crying for help.  Several people heard and saw this.  As Martin was sitting on Zimmerman wailing away, he noticed that Zimmerman had a gun still concealed in its holster and he (Martin) tried to get it.  At that point, they both were struggling for the gun and it went off – killing Trayvon Martin.

Of course the media has to portray this as a racially motivated incident, perpetrated on a fine upstanding member of the community.  Then, as more of the truth comes out, they end up having to back track and revise their comments, but not before the liberal activists have been further fired up.  What is now coming out of this is a huge cry from the left to dismantle the “stand your ground” laws.

But the inept prosecutor who is simply reacting to the hordes of lynch mobs who have been fired up by likes of the racial activists Louis Farrakhan and Jesse Jackson, actually put forth an incompetent Arrest Affidavit that in any other jurisdiction would be laughed out of court by the judge and the media (well, maybe not the media).  But again we see a district attorney who is more concerned about re-election than a quest for the truth and who is simply pandering to her base of liberal voters.  I had originally planned on saying much more on this until I found an article that much more eloquently recaps this by John Work at the “American Thinker”.  In his article he states that the arrest affidavit brought by prosecutor Angela Corey is so poorly written and lacking in credible evidence it is laughable.  He further writes:

The Zimmerman affidavit is so deficient in properly sourced factual information and full of unsubstantiated, unsourced conclusions that I am appalled that a state’s attorney would even give it a second look.

Even Trayvon Martin’s mother has stated that she thinks that this whole incident is “an accident”.

Unfortunately, the real victim in this ridiculousness is going to end up being Florida’s hugely successful “stand your ground laws”.  After Zimmerman is finally acquitted, what is going to be the next push by the liberal activists is to repeal the “stand your ground laws” and “castle doctrine” laws that have been so effective at lowering the crime rate in Florida. But that doesn’t matter to the gun grabbers.  They won’t let an acquittal  of someone who killed a black man go unpunished.  They are more concerned about the criminals that end up as “victims” of law abiding citizens who thwart their illegal activities.  After all, we can’t have innocent people out there shooting criminals who have merely made crime their career choice.

In my opinion, George Zimmerman should be held up as an example of restraint, as a model of not over reacting with a gun on his person.  He did not use his weapon to try and end the incident earlier, scare Martin off, or even stop Martin from beating him until Martin himself went for the gun.  If anything, Zimmerman waited too long to invoke his weapon and threaten deadly force.
