What Zimmerman, Martin medical reports tell us and the media didn't


The new medical reports on the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case tell us a lot. And it is not just for what they find, but also what they don’t find.
 
First, the reports provide striking evidence that Zimmerman did not start the fight with Martin, and that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense. Martin’s injuries were two-fold: broken skin on his knuckles and the fatal gunshot wound.
 
Zimmerman’s injuries involved: a fractured nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury.
 
It takes considerable force to break the skin on multiple knuckles. The large range of injuries on Zimmerman indicates that the Martin’s attack was prolonged. But here is what is missing: where are the injuries to Zimmerman’s hands? Where are the bruises on Martin’s face or other parts of his body? The evidence paints a picture where Martin was the only person landing blows.
 
The broken skin on Martin’s knuckles and Zimmerman’s wounds obviously provide some justification for self-defense. But if Zimmerman is to have justifiably used self-defense, he can’t have provoked Martin’s attack.
 
The affidavit filed by the prosecutor against Zimmerman was extremely weak and had many glaring omissions. It does not answer the most crucial question: Who attacked whom? All it states is: “Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued.” “Confronted” does not mean “provoked” or “assaulted.” It may mean that Zimmerman merely followed Martin and asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood.
 
Surely Zimmerman had the right to investigate a strange person in his neighborhood. But, in any case, Zimmerman simply asking Martin why he was in the neighborhood doesn’t give Martin the right to start striking him or pounding his head into the concrete sidewalk.
 
Simple words do not justify hitting someone.
 
Anyway, it appears that Zimmerman didn’t even question Martin. The 911 tape of Zimmerman reporting a strange person in the area indicates that Zimmerman didn’t even try to ask Martin a question.
 
When the police operator told Zimmerman “we don’t need you to do that [following Martin],” Zimmerman appears to have stopped following Martin and agreed to go to where the police would be arriving.
 
The medical evidence implies that Zimmerman did not physically attack Martin and thus there was no justification for Martin to start hitting Zimmerman.
 
With the case unraveling, it makes the prosecutor’s behavior look even more outrageous. The prosecutor wasn’t required to go to the grand jury for the indictment, but the fact that she didn’t in such a high-profile case is troubling. Everyone knows how easy it is for a prosecutor to get a grand jury to indict, because only the prosecutor presents evidence and the standard of proof is very low.

Call me crazy, but........do I see hoodies on these thugs who beat the shit out of a soldier who fights for their rights???? Wonder where Sharpton, Jackson , Crump and Holder are......<crickets>, and certainly this can't be a hate crime, nah.....

 ::snipping2::

The manager of the Green Oaks Apartments, where the young man lives, was sickened by what she saw. "I was horrified," said Pat Chumley. "I couldn't believe how bad it looked."
 
The 24-year-old is stationed at MacDill Air Force Base and arrived from Georgia, sources say, with only the belongings in his car.
 
Chumley and her friends are working to get some furniture for the soldier since he doesn't even have a bed, they say.
 
If you watch the surveillance video closely, just seconds before the attack, three men are seen walking ahead of the soldier. Then, one of them walks back and hits the young man in the face. As the soldier falls to the  ground, more men join in on the brutal beating. In fact, another person comes running down the street and joins in.
 
Tampa Police Lt. Mary O'Connor told 10 News, "It's shocking.  We need to find out who these individuals are."
 
The young soldier was beaten, kicked, punched, and left in the street. His wallet and phone were stolen. He eventually made his way to a nearby home on Iowa Street, begging a woman to call 911. The woman who placed the emergency call declined to comment.
 
Chumley says that she and her friends have tried to be somewhat of a mother to the young man. She said, "He'll ask advice from us, you know, we love to give advice. You know how mothers are."
 
They are hoping to help him when he finally gets home for good. "I'm gonna give him a big hug. You know, he's a young kid."
 ::snipping2::


A group of three young men is seen walking ahead of the soldier. Police say one of the men in the group doubled back and asked to soldier to borrow a dollar. When the soldier reached for his wallet, the first punch flew.

 ::snipping2::
This is another man I will send $$ to, FTLOG he had nothing and yet still reached in his pocket after they doubled back on him.

Update:

UPDATE: The victim has been released from the hospital -- Reward now $16,250 in beating of soldier in South Tampa: http://bit.ly/JhmGXA  https://www.facebook.com/bn9fans

Lawyer says Zimmerman medical report leaked to boost case.


Lawyer Benjamin Crump said he has not seen the medical report but questions who leaked the information and why
"It was leaked for a beneficial purpose," he said, "certainly to help George Zimmerman's claim of self-defense."

The medical report detailing George Zimmerman's injuries after he shot and killed Trayvon was first reported by ABC News on Tuesday.   ::snipping2::

Trayvon Martin killed by single gunshot fired from 'intermediate range,' autopsy shows


Florida teenager Trayvon Martin died from a single gunshot wound to the chest fired from “intermediate range,” according to an autopsy report reviewed Wednesday by NBC News.

The official report, prepared by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also found that the 17-year-old Martin had one other fresh injury – a small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch  in size –  on his left ring finger below the knuckle.
 
Separately, a medical report on Martin’s alleged killer, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, prepared by his personal physician the day after Martin’s shooting in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, found that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer suffered a likely broken nose, swelling, two black eyes and cuts to the scalp. That report, first reported Tuesday by ABC News, also was reviewed by NBC News.   ::snipping2::

Marks of Violence

  Forensic medicine well studied practically all types to forcible death. We shall Bring only some the most wide-spread types of the violence, but you should understand that forensic science can reveal all!

Gunshots

  The most common form of murder is shooting. Firearm shootings are most common in the USA and Canada, however cases of shootings are increasing rapidly in all countries. It is said that the exit wound of a bullet is much larger and more ragged that the entry wound, the case is not always so. It all depends of the nature of both the bullet and the part of the body the bullet enters and exits.

  The entry wound is larger than the exit wound if the bullet is moving through flesh, however this is not that common an occurrence as the bullet usually hits bone. When the bullet does hit bone, it either ricochets off the bone and stays in the body, or it exits. If it exits, the exit wound will be larger than the entry wound. If a bullet does hit bone it often ricochets in a different direction. The angle of the bullets path can often be determined.

  The entry wound can often be distinguished quite easily. If when fired the gun was held quite close to the skin, there will be soot and residues around the wound. If the muzzle of the gun was held to the skin when shooting, the skin around the wound will be black and maybe pinkish in colour due to the emission of carbon monoxide. The entry hole will be star-shaped or splintered if fired at close-range. The further away a shot is fired, the neater the entry wound will be, and there will be less blackening of the skin.

  In forensics there are four types of gunshot wound: Contact wound - The muzzle of the gun was applied to the skin at the time of shooting, Close Range -The muzzle of the gun was 6-8 inches away from the skin at shooting, Intermediate Range - The gun was 8 inches to 3.5 feet away, and Distant - The gun was over 3.4 feet away at the time of shooting.

Zimmerman: Martin's last words were "it's over"

SANFORD, Fla., - The trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murdering Trayvon Martin is still months away, but the investigation continues.

CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann has come up with new information about what happened that February night when Zimmerman shot the unarmed teenager in a gated community in Sanford, Florida.

At the heart of this case is what happened of the course of 90 seconds: from the moment Zimmerman hung up with a non-emergency dispatcher -- to the first 911 call from a neighbor.

What Zimmerman wounds might mean for Martin case
Report: Trayvon Martin gun range targets sold online
Trayvon mom: Re-examine "Stand Your Ground" laws

Wednesday new details emerged from sources close to the investigation. A responder at the crime scene told CBS News that he and others saw wounds on the knuckles of one of Martin's hands as he lay dead on this lawn, suggesting Martin had thrown a punch.

Zimmerman told police he fired the shot at point blank range while on his back, as the 17-year-old straddled him.

He also told investigators Martin did not die immediately but mumbled either "it's over" or "you got me."  ::snipping2::

O’Reilly And Trayvon Attorney Dissect Legal Impact Of Zimmerman’s Medical Records Showing Injuries

On his show Wednesday night, Bill O’Reilly returned to the Trayvon Martin case — in light of ABC News’ report that medical records support George Zimmerman‘s account of scalp injuries and a broken nose. O’Reilly emphasized — as he has in the past — that the case should not be tried on television. He brought in Martin family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, to discuss.
 
RELATED: ABC News Reports Medical Records Support George Zimmerman’s Account Of Broken Nose And Scalp Injuries
 
Obviously, O’Reilly said, this new evidence points to a confrontation between Martin and Zimmerman. Furthermore, all the pundits who were quick to place guilt on Zimmerman, he said, are now being challenged by the medical report.

Crump agreed the case shouldn’t be tried on TV, but said the medical records should be “vetted properly.” He went on to question why Zimmerman, if he’d sustained serious injuries, would have declined medical attention following the incident. O’Reilly agreed that the prosecutor needs to cross-examine — going on to mention Martin’s autopsy, which said Martin’s knuckles were scraped. (NBC News’ report notes it was, “a small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size — on his left ring finger below the knuckle.)
 
Without eyewitnesses, O’Reilly said, it’s very difficult to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, second-degree murder based on racial profiling. Crump urged the need to put “everything in the full context.” There “are different versions of his account,” Crump said. “They hopefully are going to come out.” He went on to say that if Zimmerman had “stood down,” there’d have been to need for him to “stand his ground” — referring to Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, which allows acting in self-defense if there’s a reasonable belief of threat.
 
The two agreed on one thing: we shouldn’t be jumping to any conclusions, especially not without taking a look at all the evidence in context.
 
Take a look at the segment, via Fox News:

Lawyer Denies Leaking George Zimmerman's Medical Report

The attorney for Martin's parents, Natalie Jackson, is questioning the release of the medical records Tuesday that prosecutors have in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman.
 Jackson said she feels the report was leaked to try and help Zimmerman's defense, but Zimmerman's lawyer denies any involvement.
 "Did your office leak that to make Mr. Zimmerman look better?" reporter Bob Kealing asked Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's lawyer.
 "Absolutely not," said O'Mara.
Zimmerman claims that Martin punched him in the face and started slamming his head on the ground.
 "In defending him in public like this you're painting Trayvon who was a kid walking home from the store as an aggressive thug, which he was not," said Jackson.
 Jackson also questions why Zimmerman went to a family doctor the day after the incident rather than to the emergency room the night of Feb. 26.
 The report indicates that Zimmerman was treated Feb. 27 at Altamonte Family Practice.
 Jackson said the medical report does not include X-rays or an MRI to confirm the injuries.
 "Where are those objective reports?" Jackson said. "Not there. We know from the video taken 30 minutes after the incident there wasn't even a bandage on his head."   ::snipping2::

No surprise here, with the Martin family disputing medical report.  Is it all a conspiracy against Treyvon?  Or has there been a conspiracy against Zimmerman?  What are the facts?  Where is the truth?

Martin's family disputes Zimmerman medical report
May 17, 2012

EMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

Trayvon Martin’s family is questioning a newly obtained medical report that shows George Zimmerman was treated for a fractured nose, cuts and a black eye one day after he allegedly killed Martin.

ABC News broke details of Zimmerman's medical report on Tuesday.

Court records show Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old Martin.

“It goes along with Zimmerman's story that he acted in self-defense, because he was getting beaten up by Trayvon Martin," said WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer.

ABC News reported the medical records were part of evidence released that prosecutors have in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman. He has entered a plea of not guilty and claims self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting.

The injuries the doctor lists correspond to Zimmerman's account of what happened before Zimmerman opened fire on Martin. However, the report did not say that Zimmerman had been concussed.

Martin’s parents are disputing Zimmerman’s medical report, saying he was not beaten as badly as he claims he was.


 “The testimony is that Trayvon Martin beat his head against the pavement repeatedly for over a minute,” said Martin’s family attorney, Benjamin Crump. “And so, you'd logically conclude that somebody would be concussed.”

The Mayo Clinic said most concussions don't cause unconsciousness and "some people have concussions and don't realize it.”

 But the new medical records also show the doctor wrote that Zimmerman "had a weapon as he is authorized to carry a firearm, and he fired at the attacker, killing him."

Sheaffer said that unrelated statement about the gun could raise questions about the report, which otherwise helps Zimmerman.

Bill O'Reilly: Stunning new developments in the Trayvon Martin case
By Bill O'Reilly
May 16, 2012

ABC News is reporting and Fox News is confirming that a Florida doctor examined George Zimmerman hours after his confrontation with Trayvon Martin on February 26th.

You'll remember, Zimmerman shot the 17-year-old dead and has now been charged with second degree murder. According to the doctor, George Zimmerman suffered a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and minor back injury. Also Zimmerman had bruising to his upper lip and cheek. Obviously all of that points to a physical confrontation between him and Trayvon Martin.

After the initial story broke, pundits went wild. You remember that. And you also may remember that I called for restraint when analyzing the case. I asked the commentators who were convicting George Zimmerman on television to stop. Here is an example of how crazy things were.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HANK JOHNSON (D) GEORGIA CONGRESSMAN : He was executed for WWB in a GC; walking while black in a gated community.

FREDERICA WILSON (D), FLORIDA CONGRESSWOMAN: Trayvon was hunted down like a rabid dog. He was shot in the street. He was racially profiled.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

O'REILLY: Obviously those very tense and inflammatory statements are now being challenged by the evidence. The doctor who examined Zimmerman will be a key witness in the upcoming trial.

Now, once again I do not want to try this case on television but because it has become a national controversy. Loaded with racial implications, the doctor's report is major news. This latest exposition should prove to Americans once and for all -- once and for all, the case needs to be tried in front of a jury and people need to stop jumping to conclusions and exploiting the death of an American teenager for their own purposes.

That's right. Trayvon Martin was used by pundits and politicians to make political and social points... very wrong.


Mr. Zimmerman is out on bail. He is in hiding. His life has been threatened. His next court date August 8th. But a full trial will most likely not begin until next year.

And that's "The Memo."

Yep...the media manipulates news to hide other news that they don't want people to pay much attention to.  (Sorta like when J2K was released from KIA while Katrina occupied the US news)  I wonder what it was that the MSM was trying to minimize.

Any ideas?

 Two police reports written the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin said that Zimmerman had a bloody face and nose, according to police reports made public today.
 
The reports also note that two witness accounts appear to back up Zimmerman's version of what happened when they describe a man on his back with another person wearing a hoodie straddling him and throwing punches.
 
In addition, Trayvon Martin's father told an investigator after listening to 911 tapes that captured a man's voice frantically callling for help that it was not his son calling for help.
 
The new information is part of a trove of documents released by the Florida State Attorney today in the case against Zimmerman, who is charged with second degree murder for the Feb. 26 killing of Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American male.
 
Zimmerman, 28, is a multi-racial Hispanic man who volunteered for the neighborhood watch committee who claimed that he shot Martin in self-defense after the 6-foot tall, 160 pound teenager knocked him to the ground, banged his head against the ground and went for Zimmerman's gun.
 
Two police officers reported that when they arrived at the scene of the shooting, Zimmerman seemed to have a broken nose and bloodied face. One wrote that his "facial area was bloodied," and the back of his clothing was soiled with wet grass.
 
"Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and the back of his head," Officer Ricardo Ayala wrote.
 
Another officer wrote, "I saw that Zimmerman's face was bloodied and it appeared to me that his nose was broken."
 
Witnesses, whose names were redacted from the report, also lent support to Zimmerman's version of what happened.  ::snipping2::

Martin's family disputes Zimmerman medical report

 ::snipping2:: 


Martin’s parents are disputing Zimmerman’s medical report, saying he was not beaten as badly as he claims he was.

 “The testimony is that Trayvon Martin beat his head against the pavement repeatedly for over a minute,” said Martin’s family attorney, Benjamin Crump. “And so, you'd logically conclude that somebody would be concussed.”

The Mayo Clinic said most concussions don't cause unconsciousness and "some people have concussions and don't realize it.”

 But the new medical records also show the doctor wrote that Zimmerman "had a weapon as he is authorized to carry a firearm, and he fired at the attacker, killing him."

Sheaffer said that unrelated statement about the gun could raise questions about the report, which otherwise helps Zimmerman.

“This is going to make what the paramedics, the first responders, observed all the more important,” said Sheaffer. “If their observations are consistent with this doctor's report, then it's going to bolster this report.”

WFTV also learned that Martin had broken skin on his knuckles when he was shot and killed. That could play into Zimmerman's story that Martin punched him in the nose and then slammed his head on the sidewalk.   

However, Crump said Martin had cuts to knuckles, saying, Martin got those injuries fighting for his life.   ::snipping2::

Why did Tracy Martin not allow the police permission to download Trayvon's phone info before he talked to his lawyer?

And why did he lie about the screams being TM.........this is no doubt a tragedy in every way but is now a witch hunt IMO and a damn profitable "job" for a few:(
