Forensic pathologist Vincent Di Maio testified this morning in State of Florida versus George Zimmerman, and as the guy who literally wrote the book on gunshot wounds for his fellow forensic pathologist peers, Di Maio is likely the foremost expert in the world at his specialty.
Di Maio’s testimony gutted the prosecution’s case.
He used science to show that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in the exact position as he described, and he testified that the wounds Zimmerman suffered were entirely consistent with the sort of beating he claimed to take. Di Maio also slapped state medical examiner Shiping Bao for not opening up Trayvon Martin’s hands to check for evidence of bruising consistent with the kind of attack Zimmerman reported. Such bruising would not have been evidence on a man killed so soon after issuing such a beating.
Put bluntly, the state failed to make a viable prosecution of Zimmerman, and in my opinion, never came close to establishing “beyond a reasonable doubt” for any possible charge. The defense Mark O’Mara has orchestrated so far has been masterful, and we’re moving very close to the point of proving innocence, which is almost unheard of in a trial. With more than three dozen witness’s testimony in the books, George Zimmerman’s statements of what happened that night have been corroborated at every possible turn.
Commenting on the case has made me unpopular, as the tweet about shows. It isn’t the first “death tweet” I’ve gotten during the course of the case, and won’t be the last. People are too wedded to their narratives to let facts, evidence, or the law intrude, and so they lash out and doggedly continue to believe the false narrative provided to them early on by race hustlers and a biased media.
This is what progressive “tolerance” looks like, folks.
