Trayvon Martin Case: More Lies?

When you have defense attorney Alan Dershowitz in the corner of George Zimmerman, you know the case has problems. From Breitbart's Big Government:

ABC News has released a new photo of the back of George Zimmerman’s head, taken just “three minutes after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin.” His head is brutally bloodied. As the image above shows, there’s blood all over his head, at least two gashes, and a large bruise forming at the top of his head.

Zimmerman’s contention all along has been that Martin was bashing his head against the pavement, which is why he was forced to shoot him. The media – especially ABC News -- initially attempted to discount that story completely, releasing video of his booking at the Sanford police station that were not well-pixellated, and thus did not show the gashes on the back of his head.

Continuing, involving Dershowitz:

With ABC News’ release of the George Zimmerman photo showing blood flowing freely from his head, the question becomes whether Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case, had access to the photo before charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph, or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head. Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.”

After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “grave ethical violation,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.”

Dershowitz continued, “An affidavit that willfully misstates undisputed evidence known to the prosecution is not only unethical but borders on perjury because an affiant swears to tell not only the truth, but the whole truth, and suppressing an important part of the whole truth is a lie."

To me, the next logical question might be: did the Florida prosecutors decide to file second degree murder charges --despite this evidence -- because of external political/racial pressures?

It will be interesting to discover, as Dershowitz points out, whether or not Angela Corey was in possession of this potentially exculpatory evidence.

"Curiouser and curiouser."

BZ, you and I both know that in high-profile cases like this (especially when the media is involved) that the prosecution has to make a show and press charges, even if the charges are excessive. And when the likes of Sharpton, Jackson, and the New Black Panthers are making the rounds & noise, it's virtually assured that politics will be involved.

And yes, I'm back in the blogging world at a new place -

It was self-defense and I could careless what the media says. The man was not a racist and he killed that kid while fighting for his life.

Tom, I may pay you a visit.

Withholding these photos is criminal.
When it all comes out, the black leaders will all be scrambling for a place to hide and not or never comment.
The sooner the better that the black Trayvon Martin caused these injuries to Zimmerman, is known by court action, the better.
Do not ever expect from the black leaders.
They have stirred up racial riots that will still start taking place very soon!

Of course they filed due to political (Racial) pressure...

Two thoughts, disabuse me of of either notion if they seem out of line with your experiences.

1. The more excessive the charge the easier to gain acquittal.


2. Zimmerman fired from a standing position.

I want to know what happened to the tea. If it was placed down Zimmerman walks; if it was spilled then things get less clear.

All: the bottom is this. . .

First, the media is completely against Zimmerman and, further, purposely EDITED down important clips on their own. NOW, second, WHAT is it that the prosecutors do or do NOT have? Third, WHAT is their motivation? It seems to me that purity has certainly appeared to be thrown out the window.

I suspect the information will be revealed, but even before any significant court date this case has been highly manipulated against Zimmerman, who MAY not be innocent but whose ability to acquire a FAIR trial appears to be already in serious jeopardy.

Guilty or not, if evidence isn't forthright the case stands to be vacated.

More interesting is the lack of coverage for the Trevor Dooley v David James case, here in Florida.

I'm already up to my ears with it down here as we are getting reports just short of when Mr Zimmerman takes a dump!!

I'm sure YOU haven't missed the underlying issue here BZ. Neither have most of your readers I'm betting. But let me state it anyway.

The TRUTH is seldom what you read first in the State run Media. BUT people have made up their minds on those FIRST accounts. Then, they refuse to admit their errors so they double down. And continue making up lies to support their original claims. Such as "The picture was photoshopped"...

The problem is: It's the democrat party platform in a nut shell. War on women? It was front and center and people made up their minds. Then the truth comes out. What if it was voting day during that LIE? Women voters would have voted for Obama because of it. Then learn the truth and then what? We are stuck with Obama...

The real issue is a media that is unaccountable. Driving an agenda that is destroying our nation. What do we do about it? IF you're like me YOU don't watch ANY news on the alphabet networks. I don't do business with sponsors on shows like Maddcow/Tingles/Bashir or any of the other lefty's. WE on the right need to use our pockets to change the media... Evidently we can't even do that right.

OK, the bottom line has STILL not been reached here...

Bottom line; no matter HOW this turns out in court the *homies* are going to go wild in Florida...

Win or lose, there is a riot coming and some WHITE FOLKS better be armed, these animals are going to be out for more than blood...

I was actually considering cancelling my 2 week vacation to Florida, but then I decided, what the Hell, I'm protected by the "Stand your ground law." So we are leaving in a couple of days.

Watch and see, you heard it hear first, Zimmerman will likely be cleared of wrongdoing but he will have to go into hiding (probably permanently) just like another infamous Floridian, Casey Anthony. The media screwed the pooch on that case too. How can anyone get a fair trial these days, when the morons of the press screw things up so badly? Maybe they should spend some time in prison for obstructing justice!!!

are paramedic reports always kept under wraps? I find it odd they haven't even been asked for by the media, the public, etc.
This was self defense...GZ wasn't perfect, Trayvon should have just gone about his business but he was too much the hot head to see a non-black guy looking at him and not take him on. The kid should be alive and he would have if he'd just KEPT WALKING, or approached GZ and told him where he was going.

GZ's life will never be the same...if he lives through this.

If one talks to the crackers(born and bred Floridians) they'll tell ya it because of all the Yankees that move down here!!

I have to admit, I one of those, having moved here from upstate New York 13 years ago.
