Zimmerman: protesters call for his arrest and justice for Trayvon

Not a mark on him?

A police surveillance video taken by police shows George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin, with no blood or bruises on him whatsoever.  This video comes to light after Zimmerman claimed he was knocked down by the teen and had his head slammed against the ground multiple times.

The initial police report said that Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and the back of his head before receiving first aid from the Sanford Fire Department. Police claim he received aid before the video was taken at the station, but no evidence supports he was injured or treated, not having bandages or gauze on him.

Prior to the release of the video, Zimmerman claimed he was defending himself against the skittle laden teen. Trayvon was face down dead on the ground with a single gunshot wound to his chest. The funeral director in charge of Trayvon’s body told CNN, “I didn’t see any evidence he had been fighting anybody.”

George Zimmerman has not been arrested yet but the case has been turned over to the proper authorities for further investigation. A grand jury is scheduled to preside on the case April 10 but Special Prosecutor Angela Corey in charge of the case, told the Herald, “I foresee us being able to make a decision, and move on it on our own,”
