Police video shows Zimmerman with no visible blood or bruises

Rate this post

A police surveillance video of a handcuffed George Zimmerman arriving in a police cruiser shows the shooter of Trayvon Martin as being leaner than he was in the standard photo we’ve seen. More importantly, Zimmerman does not appear to have visible blood or bruises on his face and head, despite his claim that Martin had punched him in the nose, knocked him down and slammed his head into the ground.

Matt Guttman reports for ABC World News, March 28, 2012, that the surveillance video, which was obtained exclusively by ABC News, shows Zimmerman arriving in a police cruiser. As he exits the car, his hands are cuffed behind his back. Zimmerman is frisked and then led down a series of hallways, still cuffed.
Zimmerman, 28, is wearing a red and black fleece and his face and head are cleanly shaven. He appears well built, hardly the portly young man depicted in a 2005 mug shot that until a two days ago was the single image the media had of Zimmerman.
The initial police report noted that Zimmerman was bleeding from the back of the head and nose, and after medical attention it was decided that he was in good enough condition to travel in a police cruiser to the Sanford, Fla., police station for questioning. His lawyer later insisted that Zimmerman’s nose had been broken in his scuffle with 17-year-old Martin.
In the video an officer is seen pausing to look at the back of Zimmerman’s head, but no abrasions or blood can be seen in the video and he did not check into the emergency room following the police questioning.
Zimmerman was not arrested although ABC News has learned that the lead homicide investigator filed an affidavit urging Zimmerman be charged with manslaughter. The prosecutor, however, told the officer to not file the charge because there was not enough evidence for conviction.
For the factual details of the Martin shooting, see my post of March 26.
The deputy manager of Obama’s reelection campaign is now accusing the Republicans of “politicizing” the Trayvon Martin shooting. That is laughable, given the shameless race hustling of political figures such as Jesse Jackson; Representatives Bobby Rush, Maxine Water, Frederica Wilson, Hank Johnson; and Barack Obama himself — all Democrats.
Most egregious of all is the $10,000 reward that the racist New Black Panther Party has offered for the capture of George Zimmerman, wanted dead or alive,” and the call for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture Zimmerman. The New Black Panthers are most certainly NOT Republicans.
The Obama reelection campaign’s accusation that Republicans are politicizing the Martin shooting is a classic example of psychological projection. We can now add “political party hustling” to the race hustling of Obama and his fellow Democrats.

  1. i’ve put my head through a windscreen and didn’t have any visible
    injuries…but smacking my head on the pavement a few times felt
    like being cracked with a bat each time I hit….and just a few stitches
    above one eye from one of the hits.
    i heard Trevon had a screwdriver , a pair of panties and jewelry
    in possession when they searched him and threw him out of school.

  2. Dan, ‘You’ve heard’ ? That is how false rumours get started. If you don’t have proof or you were not there, don’t spread that around. I still think there is more to the story than we know and Martin was still a 17 year old kid who Zimmerman had no business chasing after with a loaded gun. How would you feel if it was your kid that was shot? I am all for security but the police were called and were on their way. Zimmerman got out of his vehicle while on phone with the police who told him to NOT follow Martin. If he was so over powered, why wasn’t he shot with his own gun?

  3. Oh and in the video, do you see any blood from his broken nose? His shirt is light gray with NO blood!

    • He wasn’t wearing that shirt in the attack I don’t believe. The video was not the best quality. I did see one larger pic of the back of his head & there appeared to be a gash. I still am going to reserve judgement until more evidence is presented. One fact is certain-the incident was tragic. But there have been quite a number of tragic incidents, involving other youths being killed, also. But black on black, or black on white crime doesn’t make the headlines, or cause such a stir of emotions. This is the one that was singled out because the race card seemed to convenient to play-although the fact that Zimmerman is part Hispanic & not a mere “cracker” , takes some wind out of the zealots sails !

    • I don’t recall anyone (first hand ) saying he had a BROKEN nose,
      only that he had been punched on the face and nose….which
      would make my having gone through a windscreen without
      apparent injury (i.e. blood) a bit more relevant . I did,however,
      bleed where I required stitches from my other altercation.

  4. The President has started grasping at straws now. He has nothing left to run on in this election. His stimulus package was a flop & ObamaCARE is an embarrassment, especially after the last couple of days in court. He has to pull the “race” card, which is an embarrassment in its self, considering he IS the Leader of the Free World. As American citizens, aren’t we just so proud of our Commander n Chief? {smirk}
    The President of the United States, is a position that, whether you respect the person or not, has always deserved and demanded Respect, but I am afraid that even that may not be the case anymore.

  5. Grouchy,
    You hit the nail on the head! Too true, my friend.
    What I do not understand in our society, is why “someone must always pay”? What if this situation was like Zimmerman said? (not saying that it was or wasn’t) We even look for a scapegoat to blame natural disasters on.
    I wish that these activists would realize that they are hurting their own cause. When someone screams and yells every time something happens, people quit listening, even if you’re right. Fighting violence w/violence is not always the answer. If Zimmerman is truly guilty, then IMO, the only thing that they have truly accomplished is bringing themselves down to his level. (what-if scenario only)

    ¡Pura mierda! He had a huge gash at the back of his head and witnesses saw the kid on top of Zimmerman beating him when Zimmerman shot the Kid. When you are attacked by a bad guy you should assume that he intends to kill you. As I said before, if someone is beating you senseless and you have a gun you had better shot him while you can, he probably will shoot you! At the very least he intends to put you in intensive care. A young thug will not be very intelligent but he will be as sneaky and underhanded as his limited resources allow. The mayates are demanding a race war. They will lose.
    ¡Mayates al infierno! Surt komer fra hel!

  7. i have had broken noses that did not bleed but at the same time my eyes watered up and couldn’t see worth a shit… two of my broken noses occured playing football returning punts and kickoffs. amazing those bars called a face mask attached to your helmet do very little to protect your face both times someone managed to get their arm across my face and hit my nose and bang down i went with a nice swollen nose.

    • When my mom was in high school, her family was playing baseball, and her sister accidentally hit her in the nose with a bat she was swinging. It broke her nose, in fact she still has a knot on it. My grandma tells the story about how bad she felt b/c they didn’t find out till a couple of days later….why? Her nose did not bleed at all!

    • i agree about face masks…it got to where you would have
      sworn they were TRYING to gouge eyes and break your nose…
      ah,the suicide squad and glory. I ended up with a line-mans cage.

    Hasn’t it just been a few weeks since some black teenagers doused a little white kid with gasoline and set him on fire after yelling racial slurs at him?!!!!!!!!! Hmm, I wonder why the corporate media whore presstitute organized crime mafia terrorist thug traitor scum racists didn’t cover that very much at all, not nearly as much as they did with their pro-black, anti-white completely biased coverage of this act of self-defense! What do you guys think?

    • Harald, if you dig deeper into that story, you will find that the schools in St Louis were causing racial division in the class room. A very disturbing fact, that is not widely known…

        Thanks for that information, khetaamenti, I find that quite easy to believe. The official curriculum, all over the U.S.A., in public and private schools, is quite radical. It is as if the Black Panthers, Malxolm X, The Weathermen, Stalin and Mao, and the entire hippie movement had designed the curriculum. That is pretty close to what did happen. In reality, you could honestly say that the curriculum was designed by robber barons using marxism as a tool for the collectivization and subjugation of the American people. Above all the very capable, efficient, and innovative white majority needed to be subdued and collectivized (to the advantage of plutocratic crypto-mafias) and aided by angry and extremely vengeful minority groups with an axe to grind. Some of these minority groups wield tremendous influence, and they wield it like a hammer.
        In addition, radical feminist ideology is taught as if it were true and rational, the anthropogenic global warming fraud is presented as unassailable truth, kids are constantly forced to examine their “carbon footprint” in lessons designed to treat human beings as a plague and to instill tremendous guilt and self-loathing (much like the self-loathing purposely instilled in white children in the history, social studies, and English classes and the loathing of whites that the minority kids learn and openly display with impunity) in the children, other “green” studies, and other completely biased re-education designed to overcome everything that the children have learned at home with their families.
        In fact, I happen to know from quite extensive and far ranging first hand observation that the much of the curriculum itself, yes the official curriculum, is a sort of finger pointing exercise about supposed white guilt for all kinds of atrocities and horrors. Some of it is based upon truth but it is emphasized and exaggerated, spun, and unbalanced. These studies would more accurately be classified as “white loathing studies” and “self-loathing studies.” The same is true of the emphasis on quite radical feminism.
        The so-called “education” that our young people are receiving in public and private schools and universities is not an education at all. What they are receiving is indoctrination in radical marxist ideology with the goal of hammering down all resistance to authoritarian collectivization of the populace of the U.S.A. and the world. Whites and males in particular are on the chopping block and had better wake up and defend themselves now!

    Zimmerman might have actually tried to leave and got waylaid by Little Trayvon. Somehow that little tiny black kid got him down and pummeled him. Little Tryvon must have had tremendous Ch’i, Ki, or internal power (nei gung).
    Almost all of the things the the presstitutes “reported” were completely made-up lies! The corporate media whores are nothing more than criminals now. They should be sued! The National Inquirer is more honest than MSNBC and all of the other corporate media whores and the public tv and radio corporate media whores.

    Now get this! Latino advocacy organizations are disavowing Zimmerman. He is half Peruvian (Indian by the looks of him) and they will not support him because he is half white.
    Those latino racist scum are saying “Todos somos Trayvon.” We are all Trayvon. Of course they apparently ARE all Trayvon in that they are brutal thug criminal haters of whites.
    What they should be saying if they were honest is: “¡Todos nosotros somos traisioneros sin medidas, no apoyamos a los medio hispanos, estamos unidos en nuestro odio del hombre blanco!” “We are all traitors without measure, we do not support half Hispanics, we are united in our hatred of the white man!”

    I cleaned and lubricated my guns the other day.

  12. Didn’t he go to the doctor and get cleaned-up before this? (Those left/liberals… oh, he’s guilty ’cause he’s not visibly disfigured in a grainy video, but Trayvon’s innocent because we took down all those pictures of him looking like a thug.)

  13. Here’s as close of an account as you’ll probably get :
    pretty good reporting and kudos to this reporter….
    this is just like a deposition
