Zimmerman head photo bloodies those who politicized the case (Update: Zimmerman to be released on bail)
I suspected this day would come, when all of those who jumped to politically driven conclusions about injuries or not to George Zimmerman would have to confront actual evidence.
So now the Martin family attorney who went on television to proclaim Zimmerman a liar about suffering head injuries will go back on television to admit he was wrong. Right?
And that attorney will go before the jury and say something along the lines of, “All of you who saw me on television but don’t want to admit it because you’ll be kicked off the case, please know that I didn’t know what I was talking about, I didn’t wait for the evidence, and I am sorry.” Right?
And all those in the left-blogosphere who completely politicized the incident and proclaimed a grainy video proof positive that Zimmerman was lying, without waiting for the evidence, will do the same. Right?
Via a local ABC News station:
ABC News exclusively obtained a graphic photograph of George Zimmerman’s head covered in blood that was taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead. This news comes as Zimmerman is set to go before a judge in a bond hearing on Friday.
The picture shows two cuts on the back of Zimmerman’s head with blood trickling down….
The photo does not prove that Zimmerman acted with justifiable use of force. There is a lot more evidence to come out.
But it does expose the truth about those who have viewed this case since day one as a way to score political points.
Update 12:10 p.m.: I could not follow the bail hearing today, but apparently the Judge held that Zimmerman would be released on $150,000 bond, with ankle bracelet monitoring and other conditions. Incredibly, the reports I have seen indicate Zimmerman testified at the hearing. Once I have a chance to understand better what happened this morning, I’ll have a separate post.
(added) As part of the testimony this morning, a police investigator confirmed that Zimmerman suffered head injuries:
“His injuries are consistent with trauma to the back of his head,” investigator Dale Gilbreath said. “There is two lacerations to the back of his head.”
