Zimmerman’s contention all along has been that Martin was bashing his head against the pavement, which is why he was forced to shoot him. The media – especially ABC News — initially attempted to discount that story completely, releasing video of his booking at the Sanford police station that were not well-pixellated, and thus did not show the gashes on the back of his head. It took several days for ABC News to release an enhanced version of the video that showed that there were gashes on Zimmerman’s head. In the meantime, the media had a field day reporting that Zimmerman had shot Martin essentially in cold blood; Martin’s family claimed that Zimmerman was not injured; members of Congress, without any evidence, attempted to pass a resolution labeling the killing a racially-motivated crime.
ABC News reports that the source of the new photo was a witness to the aftermath of the event, and that Zimmerman asked the source to call his wife for him after the shooting.
Well, as I predicted he has a good case and a chance in Florida to go scott free. They were in a big scuffle and somebody screamed.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn DSK has resigned his head post in the IMF and plead not guilty to the rape charges in a hearing. Was bail set, not sure. He wants a one million dollar bail. But they also want to put electronic monitoring on him. He should have kept his little pecker in his big pants. How ironic that a poor, immigrant, black, Muslim, hotel maid, woman from Guinea has squashed the career of what would have been the mark of the beast from the founder of the euro. Kahn is Jewish, both parents were Jews.
