    Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman

    A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who says he shot Martin after he was punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head slammed into the ground.

    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.
  2. This does not look like a guy whose skull was just repeatedly bashed into concrete imo

  3. Zimmerman is doomed. His entire story has just fallen apart.
  4. +1,this is going to be huge imo
  5. Zimmerman also has conflicting stories I believe.He told police Martin ambushed him but Zimmermans friend is going around giving interviews saying they had words before the fight.If you exchange words before a fight that is not an ambush
  6. Zimmermen did not go to the hospital after police released him even though his head supposedly had just been repeatedly bashed into the concrete and his nose was supposedly broken
  7. No blood flowing from that nose.
    No sniffling, which he certainly would have been doing had he had a broken nose.
    It's not swollen.
    It's not out of place.
  8. Actually Zimmerman's story is that Martin came up behind him when Zimmerman was walking back to his vehicle. Zimmerman stated that they had words and Trayvon said something like "You have a problem now" before punching Zimmerman in the face. After this (according to Zimmerman) Trayvon climbed on top of Zimmerman who was on the ground and started hitting him. The claim by Zimmerman's lawyer is that Zimmerman had a broken nose and a cut on the back of the head that required stitches the next day due to the violence of the attack.

    Zimmerman also has not been able to come up with medical records demanded by prosecutors to prove his assertions about requiring medical treatment.

    This video further destroys Zimmerman's credibility. There does not appear to be any blood on his clothes (if you shoot someone who is sitting on top of you then you will have some of the other person's blood on you IMO). Also there appears to be no broken nose (which would bleed) or bloody injury to the back of his head.

    This also throws out further questions about why the police did not press charges originally.

  9. +1
