Photo taken of Zimmerman finally released by law enforcement

Certainly we can discuss if George Zimmerman should have gotten out of his car and followed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. in late February, but that seems to be the only thing prosecutors can even try to hold against Zimmerman in their Murder 2 charge.

The serious issue here is the media pushing the fact Zimmerman showed no visible injuries in late March, while law enforcement and or the prosecutors refused to release the full-color digital photo they took of Zimmerman immediately after the death of Martin.

You have to ask … why did they provide the defense with crappy black and white photocopies multiple times when asked for the original digital image? You only have to look at the image to know why. From Fox News.

Zimmerman’s legal team released the photo, which they believe bolsters their case that Zimmerman, 29, was being beaten when he fatally shot the 17-year-old Martin in the chest. The photo was taken by police and only released to Zimmerman’s team recently, said Zimmerman’s lawyer. Previously, the team only had a black-and-white photocopy of the picture.

“That’s really one of my frustrations. They originally submitted a black and white photo so we asked for a color copy. They then submitted a color photo copy that was drab,” said Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara to

“We kept asking for a digital copy and then we had to file a motion [in court] to have it submitted.”

This is not a “stand your ground” case. This is a self defense case.

Zimmerman says he did not pull his concealed firearm – a Kel-Tec PF-9 – when he was following Martin. The evidence we have indicates Zimmerman had turned back to return to his vehicle after he lost sight of Martin. What exactly happened we do not know, but eventually there was a struggle – witnessed by people living in the community – that resulted in multiple head injuries to Zimmerman both to the front and back. Martin suffered injuries to his knuckles, and a single gunshot wound that caused his death.

Again, this is not a stand your ground case.

Prosecutors had asked for the gag order, claiming a website and social media used by Zimmerman’s attorney could influence potential jurors in the racially charged case.

Sorry, but that horse left the barn with the media firestorm in support of charging Zimmerman for murder and after President Obama said if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.

    “Prosecutors had asked for the gag order, claiming a website and social media used by Zimmerman?s attorney could influence potential jurors in the racially charged case.”

    In other words, they are only interested in creating a bias against Zimmerman using the mainstream media to “legitimately” influence potential jurors as well as polish up another indispensable piece in their anti second amendment campaign..?

    That is not the face of someone who was wielding a gun; it is the face of someone that was getting the snot beaten out of him.? Shame on George Zimmerman for “making Martin suffer injuries to his knuckles with his face!!? /sarc
    The prosecutors in this case are pathetic, as Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz has so aptly and repeatedly pointed out.? They used the media and Martin’s parents to make a public case that was clearly wrong, and then compounded that by refusing to release all the evidence, in full, to the defense.? They should be disbarred.

    A competent defense attorney will have the Zimmerman case thrown out or the charges reduced to a misdemeanor.? The race industry will then claim that it was a racist system that let him walk.? Divisiveness in Obama’s America. ??

    If you listen to the 911 dispatch tape, you can hear a click when Jorge unbuckles his seat belt and another when he opens the door to a dark and dreary, cold FL night. At that point the dispatcher asks what he is doing and tells Jorge he doesn’t have to try to find Tray – that a cruiser is on its way.? At that point, Jorge tells the dispatcher to tell the cops he’ll meet them at the mailboxes and then intends to walk between buildings to get there.? We don’t know what happened next.? You also need to study the aerial photos of the condo to see where the mailboxes are located, where the fight ensued and where Tray’s dad’s girlfriend lived.? If he was returning back to her house, then he was going the wrong way.? Too many questions..testosterone at its worst.
