New Zimmerman Photo Doesn't Help His Case

    Oh, a bloody-nosed George Zimmerman! The poor baby!

    Is that the reaction Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s lawyer, hoped we’d have when the color photo of his client with a bloody nose was released?

    Sorry, O’Mara, but my reaction was: “Oh, a bloody-nosed George Zimmerman! What a PAB he is!”

    Yes, Mark, me boy, the “P” stands for “punk.” And the “A” and the “B” stand for precisely the words you think they stand for.

    That’s what the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case boils down to: a 17-year-old who defended himself against someone he thought was a potentially violent stalker, and a PAB that couldn’t have licked a postage stamp, much less Martin.

    According to news reports, O’Mara hoped that the release of Zimmerman with his bloody nose “could bolster his case that Zimmerman was being beaten when he shot Trayvon Martin.”

    O’Mara’s “case” doesn’t need bolstering. (And, I might add, not one of Zimmerman’s injuries sustained during the fight with Martin has even been remotely described as life-threatening.)

    I don’t know if Trayvon Martin’s parents, their lawyer or any of their supporters will concede this, but I will: Trayvon Martin WAS whipping Zimmerman’s ass on the night of Feb. 26, when the youth was fatally shot.

    But I’ll just as quickly add this: Trayvon Martin SHOULD have been whipping that ass.

    He was walking in a gated community where his father’s girlfriend lived. He was returning from a nearby 7-Eleven, where he’d just purchased some Skittles and an Arizona iced tea.

    Martin was engaged in the most basic, fundamental, constitutionally protected conduct there is: he was MINDING HIS OWN BUSINESS. But in Sanford, Fla., and in the mind of Zimmerman, young black men engaged in the basic, fundamental, constitutionally protected activity of minding their own business are, in fact, either committing a crime or are about to commit a crime.

    So Zimmerman, the super cop wannabe, calls the police and tells them Martin is acting “suspiciously.” He then follows Martin, ignoring police instructions that they don’t need him to do that.

    In Zimmerman’s mind, he’s doing exactly what Dirty Harry would have done: tracking down a criminal, the better to confront him and issue a “make my day” challenge.

    What O’Mara, Zimmerman and Zimmerman’s horde of supporters – I call them the “We just loves to kill ourselves a Negro on a Sunday” crowd – have ignored is that the crux of this entire case revolves around not what was going through Zimmerman’s mind, but what was going through Martin’s.

    He’s only 17 years old. And – I really can’t repeat this enough – he’s walking down the street MINDING HIS OWN BUSINESS.

    All of a sudden, he turns around and discovers there’s somebody following him. At least, that’s what Martin’s girlfriend says he told her in what would prove to be the final cell phone conversation of his short life.

    Martin has no idea why he’s being followed, but he’d have been justified in assuming the worst: that the man following him was some kind of nut job stalker intent on doing him harm.

    It is at that point that the right to self-defense, the right to “stand your ground,” applies to Martin, not Zimmerman.

    If you’re part of a neighborhood watch program and make the decision, against the advice of police, to follow someone who in fact has committed no crime, then that becomes an at-your-own-risk proposition.

    If you’re a 17-year-old being followed by someone you think might want to do you harm, you might be inclined to panic and attack that person.

    And you’d be justified.

    Yes, I believe there was a fight between Martin and Zimmerman. And I believe, as the photos indicate, that Martin was getting the better of it.

    But, and any man who’s been on the receiving end of an ass whipping will concede this, getting the worst of a fistfight has never been grounds for fatally shooting the guy giving you the beat down, unless the guy is either a professional boxer or trained mixed martial arts combatant.

    As much as Zimmerman’s supporters have tried to portray Martin as an arch criminal with a history of violence – neither of which happens to be true – they’ve presented no evidence to indicate that the youth was a professional boxer or trained mixed martial arts combatant.

    What those supporters have proved is this: Zimmerman thought he was a badass neighborhood watch captain who thought he could handle his business, but couldn’t.

    Had he just recognized what a PAB he really is, and stood down accordingly, he wouldn’t be facing second-degree murder charges today.

    And Trayvon Martin would be looking forward to celebrating his 18th birthday.

    1. I agree with Lisa. If you compare the two photos of Zimmerman from the night in question to the one shown above, it is obvious that the above picture is a fake! Zimmerman was obese when Trayvon was murdered and now he is significantly thin! Common sense people.

    2. Why are people writing these long ass paragraphs??? Anyone who has followed this story knows damn well that when this fool was arrested, he was much heavier in weight unlike the above picture of a much slimmmer George Zimmerman. Someone decided to go Hollywood with the special effects on this one.

    3. Amazing. God will take care of all these devils like Daniel. Your day is coming. No one should waste their time responding to a fool like Daniel. When you hear or see a fool, get far far away. Judgment day is near and many people will humble themselves and beg for forgiveness and mercy on their souls.

    4. What I find interesting about this picture is there was NO nose bleed from the first group of pictures taken at the police station and shown back in May or June. Now nearly a year later this shows up!!!
      According to Kappa Alpha, Trayvon lived in the complex which he didn’t. He was visiting his father who lived with his girlfriend. If Zimmerman had stayed in his car like the police dispatcher had told him, none of his would have happened!!!!!!!! A lot of people say that Trayvon was a thug and had stolen things, yet noone speaks about the assault conviction he had!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5. @Kappa Alpha Psi: Where the hell did you get your logic from? There are several things wrong with your accounting. First, it has not been reported that Trayvon was standing in some old lady’s lawn. All reports say that Trayvon was walking and talking on his cell phone when Zimmerman saw him. Second, Trayvon ran after he noticed Zimmerman following him according to the transcript of his cell phone call to his girlfriend. It is understandable that this young man would try to flee when he thinks he’s in danger. Mind you, he still has not broken any law. Third, all of this is moot because the police explicitly told Zimmerman to STAND DOWN and not pursue Martin any further. Zimmerman in his zest to make a “collar” deliberately disobeyed that direct order and continued to follow Trayvon. At that point, Zimmerman became a “stalker’ and is not covered by law as stalking is a crime. The reports then state that Trayvon ran between buildings and looked for Zimmerman. Running is NOT a crime. Convinced that he had lost him, he continued to walk home. He STILL HAD NOT COMMITTED A CRIME. According to reports, Zimmerman drove through the complex until he located Trayvon again. Mind you, Zimmerman had been ordered to stop following Trayvon. Once Zimmerman located trayvon, he approached him and questioned him. Trayvon refused to give out information as is his right. At that point, testimony is cloudy but a fight ensued. Since Trayvon was NOT breaking any laws and Zimmerman was not the authority on sight, Trayvon had every right to defend himself. The only person who knew a gun was present was Zimmerman. Once Trayvon got the upper hand, Zimmerman or Trayvon, depending on whose testimony you believe, began to shout for help. The closest witnesses have testified that it was Trayvon who was shouting for help which makes sense. Once Trayvon realized Zimmerman had a gun, he realized that he was probably going to get shot. I would have yelled for help too. Forensic audio evidence has determined that the voice shouting for help WAS NOT Zimmerman’s. Zimmerman, thinking he had enough evidence to “stand his ground” took his gun out and shot Trayvon. Say what you want but the bottom line is Trayvon was where he was supposed to be, minding his own business and had broken NO laws. Zimmerman, on the other hand, broke the law by continuing to follow Trayvon against police orders and drew a gun on an unarmed man trying to defend himself from Zimmerman’s aggression. Zimmerman will be found guilty of second degree murder as he should.

    6. When this story is finally told, the sad reality is going to be that Trayvon APPROACHED Zimmerman and INITIATED a physical confrontation. Per the 911 call, it will be PROVEN that the voice we hear in distress is Zimmerman getting his a– whipped by Trayvon. The person we will hear calling for HELP will be Zimmerman.

      I think it is entirely plausible and believable that Trayvon was whipping that a– and when it became obvous that Zimmerman had a weapon, Trayvon had no choice but to try to take it, because (if you hav ever been in a fight before), you know you cant whip someone a– and just get up and walk away and not be fearful of being shot as you flee.

      The common sense thing for Trayvon to do was to try to take the gun. I think its obvious that Zimmerman (knowing the cops are in route) was content to take the a– whipping as he wasnt being violently beaten, but when Trayvon went for his gun, I think thats whey Zimmerman had no choice but to fight for the gun, because had Trayvon got the gun, he had every reason to fear of being shot (as Trayvon was already whipping his a–).

      Zimmerman fought for the gun and once he got it, he discharged the weapon ONE time, shooting Trayvon in the chest.

      Zimmerman remained at the scene, told a witness to call 911 and when the police arrived, told them what happened.

      It is unfortunate that media folks and bloggers have elected to take this case and make it something way more than what it really was.

      Simply put, you have a neighborhood that had recent breakins (5 to be exact with one taking place the week before). Zimmerman was on his way to the grocery store and spots a person standing in the grass area of a home that belongs to an elderly woman he knows.

      Zimmerman observes the person and after determining that the person was acting suspiciously, he calls 911. Zimmerman is sitting in his car, talking to the dispatcher and tells her that Trayvon is looking at him and is now approaching his car.

      Trayvon takes off running (why, no one knows) because at this point Zimmerman is INSIDE of his car with the window up. Trayvon was not in danger but chose to run anyway.

      Zimmerman attempts to follow Trayvon (which is NOT ILLEGAL) and when told to stop, he COMPLIES. Zimmerman spends approximately 2-3 minutes on the phone talking to the dispatcher and gives them his name and before giving his address, he pauses and says, via the recording, “I dont want to give out my address because I dont know where this person is”.

      That statement confirms that Trayvon is NO LONGER IN HIS SIGHT, so he could not be FOLLOWING Trayvon as people would suggest.

      It is entirely plausible that because Trayvon lives in the complex that after he ran, thinking he lost Zimmerman, returned home. When he saw Zimmerman (who was waiting for police), he could have easily misunderstood and thought Zimmerman was following him, when Zimmerman was just waiting for police.

      The two exchanged words, a confrontation occured and Trayvon was shot. I mean, why would Zimmerman wait until NOW to shoot Trayvon, when he knows the cops are in route. He could have shot Trayvon before he called 911 if that was his goal.

      This was just a tragic misunderstanding that resulted in a death. Two people were both fearful of what the other would do with the weapon and Zimmerman, legally permitted to carry a weapon, discharged his weapon, only AFTER Trayvon attempted to take it from him.

      END OF STORY.

      • I’m not sure what investigative credentials you possess, journalistic prowess you hold, or God-given common sense you think you are displaying but I think others should hear a dissertation on the crime from people who have put more time into the research and discussion, other than the hour at work blown on the internet or the barbershop rap session. To view an exhaustive examination with maps, details, and video (made by a private citizen) where you can get a better view of what happen as described by public records (so far) – I’d rather you make up your own mind and go to http://bcclist.com/2012/03/27/trayvon-martin-george-zimmerman-map/

    7. It’s a shame when another human being can be happy at the death of a young black or white child who was just minding his buz….
