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 one good thing that has come out of the Zimmerman case is how it has exposed how racist the left is. The Progressive Elite will throw out any innuendo, skew any fact, and or bold face lies in order to move forward their Marxist/Leninist agenda.

  3. ElizabethMC says:

    The haters will ignore anything that doesn’t support their conviction of Zimmerman.

    Obama, Jackson, Sharpton and the media were terribly wrong in portraying Trayvon as an innocent ,scrawny youngster ( 12 in pictures) when he in fact was older and huskier than that,  Our Racist President even went so far as to say “If I had a son it would be Trayvon”. from this report, it is obvious that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman and that Zimmerman was defending himself.  Our Muslim in Chief , as well as the media owe Zimmerman an apology for the rush to judgement that they espoused. Shame on them..

    There is a movie, titled Boomerang, which Turner Classic Movies frequently re-runs.  First released in 1947, the movie tells the true story of a situation which includes eerie similarities to the Martin and Zimmerman case.  As the film begins, a priest is shot dead on a Bridgeport, Connecticut street at night. The police, led by Chief Robinson (Lee J. Cobb) fail to immediately find the murderer. It soon becomes a political football, with the police accused of incompetence, and the city’s reform-minded administration comes under attack. Robinson and the prosecutor, Henry Harvey, (Dana Andrews) come under severe pressure by political leaders to find the killer or bring in outside help.  –  After strenuous efforts yield nothing, a vagrant ex-serviceman, John Waldron, (Arthur Kennedy), is apprehended. He is interrogated for hours by police until, deprived of sleep, he confesses. The evidence seems solid, and a gun in his possession is believed to be the gun which was used in the shooting.  –  In the meantime, of course, the accused receives mediocre assistance from his court-appointed attorney.  Prosecutor Harvey, however, is not convinced that the police have the right man. The local political leaders become nervous.  The priest was very popular and the public is clamoring for immediate justice.  The political leaders call on Harvey and try to convince him to give up continuing his investigation – especially since it appears that the investigation is all wrapped up and the prosecution will almost surely be guaranteed an easy conviction.  The political leaders are mostly interested in placating a public which has remained highly critical of the way in which the police have been handling this case.  However, the stubborn prosecutor persists and continues to investigate the evidence and the witnesses.  In spite of the warnings which he received from local political leaders, the prosecutor lays out the case before the judge. The judge is so impressed by the prosecutor’s presentation that the charges against the accused are dismissed.  To this day, the murder remains unsolved.  In the meantime, one of the political leaders who attempted to pressure the prosecutor in to dropping his continued investigation, heads to Washington.  A few years later, the political leader who was NOT successful in convincing the prosecutor to give up his search for justice – continues to remain impressed by the fact that the prosecutor strongly believed that it was the prosecutor’s duty to discover the truth – and NOT to just prosecute cases in order to win successful convictions!  The former local political leader convinces the prosecutor to come to Washington, where the prosecutor eventually becomes Attorney General of the United States.     

    It is then revealed that the movie is based on an actual murder case in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1924. While walking near the Lyric Theatre in downtown Bridgeport, the Rev. Hubert Dahme (“Father George Lambert” in the film) was fatally shot behind the left ear by a gun fired at close range. Those in the theatre were so shocked that no one thought to call for an ambulance until 10 minutes had passed. Two hours later, the priest was pronounced dead at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport. A vagrant and discharged soldier, Harold Israel, was indicted for the murder. Israel confessed to the crime, and a .32 revolver was found in his possession, which police believed was used in the murder. Fairfield County, Connecticut state’s attorney Homer Cummings conducted a thorough investigation and became convinced that Israel was innocent of the crime. Cummings (named “Henry Harvey” in the film) later became Attorney General of the United States under Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Morning Record was the name used in the film for the Bridgeport Post (now the Connecticut Post).

    Perhaps it is time for someone to remind liberals that it was a liberal President who became convinced that it is the prosecutor’s job to discover the truth – and NOT to railroad someone who might be innocent – just because the public is making loud demands for immediate justice in a highly volatile and emotion-charged case!  And that the liberal President followed through on that conviction by persuading the stubborn prosecutor to step in to the position of Attorney General.  Liberal political leaders in Florida would be wise to step back and allow the prosecutor to dig for the facts – rather than pressuring the prosecutor to railroad a suspect who might be innocent – just because the public is making loud demands for immediate justice in a highly volatile and emotion-charged case!
