New Light On Martin-Zimmerman Shooting

Roanoke Times, 5-19-12, Pg 3: New evidence doesn’t shed much light in case.
-
Really -- Not much new light in the case? Who wrote this heading? How about:
-
Zimmerman had a bloody and broken nose, two black eyes, cuts on the back of his head all confirmed by “new” photos and a physician’s statement.
-
Two witnesses stated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman banging Zimmerman’s head on the pavement. One witness was yelling at Martin to “stop” while he called 911.
-
Martin, the bigger and younger of the two, was shot within arms length and he tested positive for MarryJoe in his system. Apparently like Obama’s son would have had.
-
This isn’t about “stand your ground”! This is plain old “self-defense”!
-
All the talk about why Zimmerman was following and questioning Martin is a red-herring. This was Zimmerman’s neighborhood and questioning someone who doesn’t live in the neighborhood is a totally reasonable and proper act.
-
I often ask strangers that appear at my absent-neighbors homes: “can I help you?”
If they jumped upon me and beat me up to the extent that I felt seriously threatened and then reacted with all means available, I certainly wouldn’t expect the police to arrest me!
-
The Va Supreme Court in a shooting at the Roanoke Holiday Inn ruled that not only should hotel employees be challenging people in their parking lot – but allowed a shooting victim to sue the motel. In other words challenging strangers is not only an option, according to the Court – it’s a required obligation, even in the parking lot.

Trying The Zimmerman-Martin Case With Major Media Photos

-
There is now a significant possibility that the DA who self-indicted Zimmerman for murder at Obama’s beck and call may well look like a rerun of the DA in the Duke Lacrosse team rape fiasco.
