George Zimmerman Showed No Signs of Blood or Bruises Immediately After the ShootingPosted: March 28, 2012
ABC News has obtained surveillance footage of George Zimmerman arriving at the Sanford police station in handcuffs, standing for some time with his back to the camera, and then walking down the hallway to the interrogation room where he is shown from the front.
There is no visible blood on the back of Zimmerman’s head and no visible cuts. The back of his jacket does not look wet. His nose does not look bloody. If Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin point blank, he should have blood on his clothing, but I can’t see any in the video. Zimmerman does not look fat or out of shape in the video either. From the ABC article:
The surveillance video, which was obtained exclusively by ABC News, shows Zimmerman arriving in a police cruiser. As he exits the car, his hands are cuffed behind his back. Zimmerman is frisked and then led down a series of hallways, still cuffed.
Zimmerman, 28, is wearing a red and black fleece and his face and head are cleanly shaven. He appears well built, hardly the portly young man depicted in a 2005 mug shot that until a two days ago was the single image the media had of Zimmerman….
In the video an officer is seen pausing to look at the back of Zimmerman’s head, but no abrasions or blood can be seen in the video and he did not check into the emergency room following the police questioning.
Last night we learned that the lead investigator the night of the shooting wanted to arrest Zimmerman that night. But Zimmerman was not arrested, because the state Attorney General Norman Wolfinger said there was not enough evidence to convict him.
One more bit of news: this evening a woman whose 13-year-old son witnessed the shooting appeared on CNN Headline News and said that the lead investigator told her that night that he did not believe Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense and that there was some profiling going on.
Please watch the video at the link. I’d like to know what other people think. My eyes aren’t the greatest.
