Hannity interviews George Zimmerman

Well, FOX just pulled an ABC/CNN editing job on the Zimmerman interview.

I think Zimmerman has been treated horribly by the media, but I’m not sure he did himself any favors last night.  Overall, he was flat and made some statements that are going to haunt him.  I’m wondering what’s with these attorneys allowing their clients to go on tv for interviews, as in this case and also in Sandusky.

I felt the following statements were going to be picked up for replay and they are cold:

Hannity: “Is there anything that you regret? Do you regret getting out of the  car to follow Trayon that night?”

Zimmerman:  No, sir.

Hannity asked. “Do you regret that you had a gun that night?”

“No, sir,” Zimmerman, 28, replied. “I feel that it was all God’s plan and not for me to second-guess it or judge it.”

(Cringe)  That is a stunning statement.

FOX just played this clip, but they cut it off just before the “I feel that it was all God’s plan…..”

I don’t know what he meant by that, because how could it have been “all God’s plan?”  But whatever he meant, he did say it and it should not have been edited out.  Misleading.  That does not accurately inform the person who did not watch the interview.

P. S.:  Well, now they are doing a segment discussing the “God’s plan” quote, but still the tape was edited to exclude it earlier this morning.

More facts and documents in the Martin/Zman case

I found more raw documents in the case.  This link contains police reports, witness statements, ballistics, toxicology, and DNA results.

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/120698339/Florida-v-George-Zimmerman—Evidence-released-to-public-May-17_-2012

A few highlights:

  • THC 1.5 ng/mL
  • THC-COOH (Carboxy) 7.3 ng/mL

FDLE Report:

Trayvon was wearing

  • One light grey Nike sweatshirt
  • One dark grey Fruit of the Loom hooded sweatshirt
  • “Each sweatshirt displays a hole located in the upper left chest area. The areas around these holes were microscopically examined and chemically processed for the presence of gunshot residues  Both holes display residues and physical effects consistent with a contact shot.”

Like I mentioned in the previous post, Lawrence Kobilinsky said the Medical Examiner’s autopsy, which says “intermediate”, 1 to 18 inches would trump the FDLE ballistics report above.  But in a way they are both saying the same thing, one saying “contact” the other saying as close as 1 inch.  (Even though he whipped out a measuring stick to indicate just how “far” 18 inches could be…..)  Then they showed a diagram showing them both standing up with Zimmerman pointing the gun to further muddy the waters, even though by all accounts they were both on the ground, with one witness saying Martin was on top, straddling Zman and hitting him “MMA.”

The report of “bloody knuckles,” though, is not right.  There was an abrasion on Trayvon’s left ring finger 1/4 x 1/8 inch and doesn’t qualify as bloody knuckles. (I heard somebody say it was 1/4 x 8 inches.  Honestly, they just get on and blabber on and I don’t think some of these “experts” have even read the reports.)   The illustrative diagram also clearly shows that it is not very big.

The media is/are so shameless in their deceptions.

They don’t want to let go of their narrative.  And some accounts are clinging to the “it could have been avoided if Zimmerman had not gotten out of the truck.”  Well, of course, it could have, but it could have been avoided if he had not gotten into the truck in the first place, if he had not gotten up that morning, and if Trayvon had stayed in his apartment and not gone to the store.  That might sound good on tv but it won’t stand up in court.

They report said it could not be determined whose voice it was yelling for help.

There was blood, his own blood, on Zman’s shirt, I believe it was bout 16 stains that tested positive for blood.

A lot still remains to be cleared up.

P. S.:  Something just occurred to me.  I doubt these documents have addresses, but I am wondering if Trayvon Martin actually lived in this community.  It has been assumed or indicated that he did, but he was shot on the 26th but did not have any identification on him.  It was the 28th before his father identified him.  If there is a person killed on the grounds of your community and there’s police, et cetera, there for hours if not days investigating and questioning witnesses, you would think his father would have known right away it was his son.  Just a thought…..It would be relevant whether he lived there or not.
