The medical experts in the media have weighed in and declared George Zimmerman guilty because he’s not bleeding profusely in a grainy video.
Explosive video reveals that George Zimmerman appeared uninjured when he arrived at a Florida police station the night he shot Trayvon Martin— his nose is not broken or bleeding and the back of his head is unmarked by grass or bruising.
I have news for them. You can have you nose broken, there can be a minimal amount of blood and — crazy as this seem — the broken nose may not swell up for many hours. Sure, none of this absolves Zimmerman of possible criminal behavior, but this is by no means a bombshell of any kind.
The security camera footage shot inside the police station directly contradicts a police report written that night.
No, it doesn’t.
“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.
Again, it doesn’t say he was bleeding profusely. One can have abrasions where there is little blood and it wouldn’t show up on some surveillance video.
Rushing to judgment is what’s brought us to this point. Again doing so does nothing but make things worse.
