ABC News has obtained a photo taken of the back of George Zimmerman’s head taken by an eyewitness just three minutes after Trayvon Martin was shot, and two minutes after police arrived on the scene (warning: graphic)
The photo shows a considerable amount of blood flowing from two wounds and bruises already beginning to form on the back of Zimmerman’s head. This seems entirely consistent with the self defense claim made by Mr. Zimmerman, who says he was forced to shoot Martin in self defense because Martin was smashing his skull against the sidewalk.
Using a concrete sidewalk to bludgeon someone is assault with a deadly weapon. This would seem to be affirmative evidence of Zimmerman’s self defense claim, making Prosecutor Angela Corey’s already absurd 2nd degree murder charge utterly preposterous.
Shockingly, Corey knew of this photo, and decided to press a political prosecution anyway. This only reinforces my belief that the charge against Zimmerman should be thrown out by the trial judge, and that the Florida Bar Association should seek to disbar Angela Corey.
