An Objective Investigation

If institutional racism and conspiracy did not occur, then George Zimmerman murdering Trayvon Martin would have him in prison today! From a fact-based, logical, and common sense approach, the crime of murder would be evident. See the two tables below.

Table 13 What We Know: The Facts

2aBlood only came from the tip of Zimmerman’s  nose – not his nostrils and there was so little blood produced it did not pass his bottom lipAll the punches he claimed he received and a punch with a force to knock him down would have produced more blood and smearing on the face, not straight lines.Photo taken while still at crime scene
3aMartin’s body was lying flat on the ground with his hands under his body close to his chestPhoto of Martin’s body after shot by Zimmerman
4aBack of Zimmerman’s head had two small cuts not needing stitches or a band aid.His medical report.
5aThe blood flow on the back of Zimmerman’s head showed a pattern of well-defined lines of blood flowing towards Zimmerman’s ears.There was no smearing of blood and no debris or hand and finger prints.Photo of the back of Zimmerman’s headThis means Zimmerman was bending over when the blood flow started as you can see from the top cut, the blood begins to flow immediately toward the side of his.
