From Zimmerman’s legal team:
This is a photo of George Zimmerman taken by a police officer on the night of February 26, 2012. A black and white photocopy of this image was provided by the State in the first Discovery. This high-resolution digital file was finally provided to the defense on October 29, 2012. This image was disclosed in the State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery.
Zimmerman, who faces charges of second-degree murder, has maintained he is not guilty and that shooting Martin was self-defense.
Did you know that when someone younger/stronger than you is on top of you banging your head on the ground, the courts in most States see the ground as a deadly weapon to the pinned victim? Especially when You are pinned over concrete?
The media picture on the left, the actual photo from the police on the right.
Busted nose, bloody faced — Why the media portrayed the scene in fuzzy Black and White. Did the media ask for hi-res color photos? Why was it necessary for the photo to turn up only after discovery??? Does anybody take pictures with a XEROX machine these days? Or did the fuzzy B&W photo fit the media narrative of the sinister shooter better?
Sure looks different in color as opposed to that grainy black and white that didn’t show the blood or the swelling.
I wonder why it took the prosecution so long to release it???
