Um, that helps Zimmerman, but it doesn't turn this into "duke rape case" 2. We already knew he had some injuries on the back of his head from the fight. But it doesn't tell us who started the fight. It also suggests that Zimmerman knew that he was going to be in legal hot water, since he had an acquaintance of his take this photo. It's fascinating that these seeming wounds would not require bandages.

Also today, we had this come to light, that doesn't help his case:

Quote
While interviewing Zimmerman’s current wife, the state proscecutor read from an affidavit by the ex-girlfriend. She alleged in the sworn statement that he “pushed her,” then slapped her with an open hand to the mouth and “asked her how it felt.” She said he “picked me up and threw me on the bed” and then “grabbed me again.” Zimmerman’s wife responded that her husband was simply trying to “protect himself from being attacked by her.”

The picture was taken before the police arrived, and when Zimmerman was telling the person what his wife should tell 911, Zimmerman said to tell them that he had shot someone.   Obviously, Zimmerman had deliberately cornered Martin where he had alibi witnesses.

Pathetic. Her word is obviously biased and means nothing in the context of this case.

The Duke rape case was completely fabricated. This concerns an incident that everyone agrees happened; the issue is over why it happened. And one of the people involved is dead and obviously won't be telling his side of the story.

Hopefully. It would be a pleasant suprise to find out Trayvon was not shot and killed.

It's still rather frustrating when you consider how many people with far better work histories than Jeff have to spend months or years unemployed before they finally get an offer.

Life is not fair.

Even if it turns out to be unjust to send Zimmerman to prison for murder, he was still extremely shady in this whole affair.
