Broken nose, broken narrative

Broken nose, broken narrative

The big news in the Trayvon Martin case, ABC News Exclusive: Zimmerman Medical Report Shows Broken Nose, Lacerations After Trayvon Martin Shooting:

A medical report compiled by the family physician of accused Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a “closed fracture” of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation.

This doesn’t prove that George Zimmerman acted lawfully, but it breaks the narrative that Zimmerman was not injured, pushed by the Martin family attorneys, left-wing blogs, LGF, and many others with an agenda.

That makes two narratives broken today.

Update:  Via Tom Maguire, and bruised knuckles:

WFTV9:

Autopsy results show Trayvon Martin had injuries to his knuckles

SANFORD, Fla. —

WFTV has confirmed that autopsy results show 17-year-old Trayvon Martin had injuries to his knuckles when he died.

The information could support George Zimmerman’s claim that Martin beat him up before Zimmerman shot and killed him.

Getting the truth out increases the odds that the false narratives will backfire on their proponents, which needs to happen repeatedly before November.

    Oh, you have no idea of the “false” narratives that have been put out there, or the tangled web that was woven by all the players. One blog, Conservativetreehouse.com, has connected the dots between the players from Tracy Martin (the father) having his sister contact Benjamin Trump; to Trump contacting Al Sharpton and hiring Raul Julison’s PR firm to get the concocted narrative out to the press, to the funeral director, Richard Kurtz (who was the longest serving president of the Broward County, Fla. NAACP) who handled Trayvon’s body for burial going on the Nancy Grace TV show and saying there were no “bruises” on Trayvon’s hands indicating Trayvon was involved in a fight.

    Every photo of Trayvon that was shown by the media was one of a younger (14 or so) Trayvon to give the impression he was just a “child”, not a 6’3″ 180 lb. 17 year old teenager with lower teeth covered in gold (called a “grill” in gang talk) and multiple tatoos and a Twitter handle “No_Limit_Nigga” that is a phrase used by the Black Foot Warriors, a group that even the SPLC has labled a black “separatist” group (the black equal to the KKK).

    And don’t forget to connect the dots between Richard Kurtz and the current Florida State Senator, Chris Smith (Dist. 29) who opposed the SYG laws, not because it allows people to defend themselves from bodily harm, but because it eliminated the ability for people like Trayvon’s parents from being able to sue the person who protected themselves via the SYG law in civil court, the specialty of the Martin family’s lawyer, Benjamin Crump. Kurtz is on record as having “mentored” Smith from Smith’s teen years all the way to the Florida State Senate.

    That is just a small example of the web that has been woven by Crump, Julison, Sharpton/Jackson and the rest of the race baiting poverty pimps involved in this case. Now the Scheme Team has taken their Justice for Trayvon Pandering Pity Party and turned it into a international road show, with “benefits” in Los Angeles, Birmingham and London, England.

    Remember, when the shooting first happened, the police, and the prosecuting attorney, believed that there was not enough evidence to prosecute George Zimmerman, because his story of the shooting checked out by the witnesses (especially the witness named John). But Benjamin Crump knew that without an arrest, there could be no civil suit for wrongful death. A civil suit opened up no only George Zimmerman to being sued, but also the police department, the County, and the State of Florida. So Crump, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton made statements that ALL they wanted was an “arrest” and let justice have its day. Yeah, right, with an arrest they now have their road to wrongful death civil suits which Crump knows can reap large bucks (he won a $7.5 million wrongful death award in another case via an agreement with Charlie Christ (former Fla. governor), settled out of court.

    What is at stake here is more than just the political career of the special prosecutor. It is the end goal of big bucks, not only for the multiple “Justice for Trayvon” 501(c)3 foundations (yes, there is more than one) but the campaign coffers of Chris Smith, and the pockets of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Benjamin Crump.

I think one word describes it all.

Busted

Tom Maguire reports that Trayvon had damaged knuckles – oops!

I’m sure a code blue is being put out for the Just-us Brothers as we speak!

Disturbing the illiterati with facts again, eh?

Evidence is racist. (As is this: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/05/autopsy-reveals-travon-martin-had-bloody-knuckles-when-he-died/)

I denounce you all for reading it.

It’s doubtful, but it would be interesting to know if Martin’s fingerprints were on Zimmerman’s pistol. One story said he was trying to get the gun and that is what could have caused Zimmerman to start screaming.

So the racist white Hispanic attacked Saint Travyone with his nose?

    BD1957 in reply to Anchovy. | May 16, 2012 at 6:44 am

    And hit him repeatedly in the hands with it – so viciously that Martin’s knuckles were bleeding.

The thing is, they had all this medical information and still they filed that absurd murder charge. Did they think it would never come out?

    From what I’ve read, the fastest and cheapest way to settle cases is for the prosecutor to overcharge and have the accused plead down.

    That strategy appears to have backfired in this case.

    The other thing I’ve read is that the impetus for Florida’s SYG law came from the high incidence of civil law suits by perpetrators against victims. Thus, if George Zimmerman’s SYG hearing results in his being exonerated he won’t be liable for any civil cases against him.

    The cynic in me presumes that the legal forces behind the Martin family are attempting an end run around the SYG law by using the threat of riots and that Florida is looking for an easy solution rather than a correct solution.

      Cowboy Curtis in reply to Jack Long. | May 16, 2012 at 12:13 am

      Its more about the special prosecutor looking towards her political future than anything else. I am a lawyer in FL, and from what has been made public, she has laughably overcharged Zimmerman.

      As for the stand your ground law, it does contain a tort shield, but in any of the two scenarios that have so far been put forward, that specific law is inapplicable. If Zimmerman started the physical confrontation, he explicitly loses all protection from SYG. If Martin did, and Zimmerman was on the ground, all Common Law duties to retreat are out the window because you can’t retreat through dirt (or in this case, concrete).

      The prosecutor, from what evidence has been made public, appears to be charging him in hopes of building her resume. The evidence as we know it simply does not support a 2nd degree murder charge under FL law, nor even one of manslaughter.

      Our State Attorneys are elected. If she didn’t charge him, the press would have crucified her, and so much more so the state Democrat party. Look at the demographics in her district (Duval and Clay Counties). If she wanted a political future, she had to charge him. I suspect that she reconciles herself with the thought that by so overcharging him, she has all but forced a jury to find him not guilty (assuming there isn’t some secret bombshell the public is unaware of). Meanwhile, she looks like she fought the good fight and the only casualty is Zimmerman’s good name, which, of course, was already ruined.

      In short, its politics.

        Thank you for the inside information.

        From your description it seems like it’s close to a Nifong scenario. Could Corey be in danger of legal action by Zimmerman is the case is dropped?

        Also, what I’ve seen written is that if Zimmerman is not arrested, neither he nor other parties such as SPD, City of Sanford, Twin Lakes Community, etc, can be sued in civilc court. Is that an accurate statement?

          Cowboy Curtis in reply to Jack Long. | May 16, 2012 at 12:23 pm

          If the prosecutor behaved badly enough, I suppose government immunity might be pierced, but I’m not familiar enough with that area of the law to really comment on how likely such an outcome would be beyond noting that the bar is usually set pretty darn high. However, she is subject to ethical standards as set by the FL bar. If she has violated the code of ethics, and depending on the severity of the violation, she could be punished with anything from a sternly worded letter to a revocation of her license to practice law in the state. If memory serves, that’s what happened to Nifong- they yanked his license.

          I suppose that without an arrest, it would be difficult if not impossible to go after the police and the city, simply because of the difficulty of showing damages. Regardless, Zimmerman has been arrested, so the point is moot.

        Saying “it’s politics” in this case is like Michael Corleone saying “it’s business, not personal.” This prosecutor is trying to advance herself by tilting all the scales and stepping on all the people in the way. I suppose it is political business, but it’s real personal to the Zimmermans, to the Martins and to the aspirations of this over-eager prosecutor. I don’t mind so much when legislators and media play politics — when prosecutors do, lives twist in the wind.

    It’s worse than that. They DIDN’T have Zimmerman’s medical records. O’Mara specifically asked the investigator during the bail hearing if he had them. When the investigator said no, he jokingly asked if he’d like him to give it to him.

    Of course, the investigators would have access to the reports and statements of the responding officers, the EMTs that treated Zimmmerman, and the statements of any witnesses. They knew he was injured. But the state sure did let the meme percolate that Zimmerman was uninjured.

This means so little. I think that it was Napoleon Obama who said: “Some minorities are more equal than other minorities”.

You must remember that the prosecutor’s unopposed reelection occurred after she charged Zimmerman.

I hope the jury does the right thing.

Gasp. You dont’ mean that the white hispanic black person might not have hunted down the black unknonw unknown feral teen like a domesticated feral feral pig? Gasp, someone please grab some cloth to cover the holes in the meme.

[…] ZIMMERMAN UPDATE: Broken Nose, Broken Narrative. “This doesn’t prove that George Zimmerman acted lawfully, but it breaks the narrative that […]

We desperately need a way to go after prosecutors who do this sort of thing other than just voting them out of office.

Also it looks like the FBI has been instructed to pile on with a charge of “profiling.” How can they just invent charges for things that aren’t even crimes? And even were it legitimate to do so we already know that Zimmerman did not know what color Martin was from his 911 call.

Sharpton and Jackson have left town because there is no more money to be made on this phony story.
But they might return to claim how the hospital/medical records were “doctored” [no pun intended] or the medical people are a part of the conspiracy to exonerate Zimmerman. Especially if there is some more money to be made.

So Trayvon was injured! obviously George was responsible for that; he must have assaulted Trayvon’s knuckles with his nose, thus accounting for his own broken nose, and Trayvon’s injuries.
The prosecution theory, apparently, is that this assault on fist by nose shows that George initiated the physical altercation, which makes him responsible for all that happened after, and that makes him guilty of second degree murder.
We really need a law that makes prosecutors pay the legal fees of defendants prosecuted by them on theories like this.

What I want to know is when is Zimmerman going to get all Duke Lacrosse on their asses?

Those bastards need to pay for what they’ve done to Zimmerman- ALL OF THEM.

Trial attorneys should be lining up around the block to start cashing in on this. Here is one instance when I would not sink a boat full of lawyers if they were to get all Old Testament in court on the chain of pricks that piled on and destroyed this mans life for defending himself.

Not surprised. Have conservatives woken up yet? Are they connecting the dots? When there are Republicans serving that look the other way, won’t stand up for our constitution, are all too willing to compromise, this is what you get.

“Broken nose…broken narrative.”

Gives new meaning to, “rush to judgment.”

So, this is proof that Martin initiated the confrontation? I could just as easily say it’s proof that he fought back when Zimmerman accosted him. But to assume that Zimmerman might not be telling the whole truth would require that: (1)I don’t always assume the black guy is guilty, and (2)Not be so caught up in my dislike of the people on the other side of the issue, that I was willing to accept without question the word of someone who has every reason to lie.

    retire05 in reply to Mike Giles. | May 16, 2012 at 9:42 am

    Let’s assume that your premise is correct and that Zimmerman was the aggressor, and “accosted” Martin. Explain how Zimmerman “accosted” Martin. Did he smack Martin with his cell phone? If so, where is the autopsy report on the mark that would have left?

    Or maybe you think that Zimmerman used his face and the back of his head to beat Martin’s hands with so it would look like Martin was the aggressor?

    Following someone does not constitute accosting. And even if you are being followed, it does not give you the right to use physical force against the follower. That is called “assault and battery” and is not allowed by law.

    iconotastic in reply to Mike Giles. | May 16, 2012 at 11:11 am

    So your argument boils down to…”Racists!”

    It is amusing to see someone who cannot recognize the implications of this physical evidence to the prosecution case. As a result, all you have left are rather lame accusations of racism.

Every photo of Trayvon that was shown by the media was one of a younger (14 or so) Trayvon to give the impression he was just a “child”, not a 6’3″ 180 lb. 17 year old teenager with lower teeth covered in gold (called a “grill” in gang talk) and multiple tatoos and a Twitter handle “No_Limit_Nigga” that is a phrase used by the Black Foot Warriors, a group that even the SPLC has labled a black “separatist” group (the black equal to the KKK).

From the very beginning when the police released Zimmerman the writing was on the wall.

Then came the race baiters like Jackson, Sharpton, Holder and even O’bammy. Judgement based on falsely created “innocent victim” evidence.

I am wondering if the based on the “women’s jewelry” that was found in Trayvon Martin’s locker if the police have done any investigation to see if they could match his finger prints at any of the robberies that had been occurring in that area. Can you imagine the broken narrative fail of “racial profiling of an innocent teen” if it turned out Trayvon really was acting suspicious as Zimmerman said he was because he was casing houses for his next break in.
