So Why Did It Take So Long to See This Photo?

Gee, this pretty much destroys the narrative of Trayvon Martin as some angelic, Skittles-munching child, huh?

A photo of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in Florida, shows the neighborhood watch volunteer with a bloody, swollen nose.

The picture was released yesterday by Zimmerman’s lawyers, who claim he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

Martin was killed Feb. 26 as he walked to his father’s Sanford home. Zimmerman’s murder trial is set for June 2013.

An attorney for Martin’s family said the photo adds nothing new and that it was known Zimmerman was hit in the nose as he fought with Martin.

Yeah, and how long did it takes us to even find that out?

    Interesting ‘reporting’ going on there…

    In 3 of the 4 paragraph-sentences quoted, the reporter apparently felt the need to reiterate the same information 3 times in 3 different ways. i.e. George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin.

    Did he have a minimum word count he needed to reach? Get paid by the letter?

    The article also seems to presume a few facts…
