    To me it is really strange Officer Smith did not arrest Zimmerman for carrying a concealed weapon.

    When I was color editing my DD's engagement pics I tried slightly increasing the red to bring out background flowers. It made my DD and her now husband look like they were having an allergic reaction to something. Playing around with colors can definitely make it look like something is there when it's not.

    If he had a permit, why would that be strange?

    He was licensed to carry a concealed weapon at the time (

    That was almost surely revoked when he was recently arrested and charged.

    These are two different news agencies. IMO also, One got called out because the editing was obvious. The other one didn't because the public doesn't have any real proof of GZ'a injuries to call foul on that pic.

    Why? It is my understanding he had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

    Officer Smith never mentions in the report that Zimmerman told him he had a permit.

    I think if was an actual alteration, where someone painted red on his head or a bruise of some sort and then it turns out he never had any injury back there, the credibility of that news agency (ABC?) goes down the drain, forever. That's a lot of money at stake for someone to alter a photo so they can 'push' the story a certain way.

    Why can't it just be acknowledged that he may have a bruise back there instead of conspiracy theorying that a major news organization doctored the image? Just because there may have been a fight and he got injured in a fight doesn't necessarily mean he was justified in shooting.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that the photo was presented as an "enhanced" image, whereas the 911 edit was presented as fact.

    It should have been in the report, but that does not mean he was not asked and in all likelyhood produced his permit.

    Officer smith didn't mention a lot of things in his report it seems. Doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    He wouldn't have to ask him if he already knew.

    Why can't it be acknowledged that there's seriously something wrong with that picture?

    Unless we should just ignore all of that or try to say that the police officer really looks like that?

    I cannot, of course, account for its veracity. I am quite certain though any defense attorney worth his salt will have an independent lab enhance images in preparation for trial as well as further documenting any sustained injuries.

    If they (the defense) rely solely on this to prove Zimmerman's injuries I think it will be very telling. JMO
    "Emotional abuse isn't calling someone a name; it isn't simply raising your voice at someone you're meant to love...it's a concerted effort, a campaign, designed with the sole purpose of destruction. Your destruction. Emotional abuse crushes your spirit. It steals a piece of your soul. It changes everything about you and how you interact with others. You are never the same having survived it. In its wake, you question everything you ever thought you knew. You wonder what's wrong with you. You believe you aren't worth loving. You doubt yourself - constantly. And you learn to live with scars no one sees."

    I won't be shocked to find that GZ had some injuries. That happens when someone instigates a confrontation and they get bested. ((shrugs)). What I don't believe is the severity of the injuries as family and friends of GZ claim.

    Not sure what your getting at. Do you mean he know Zimmerman before this night and that he already new Zimmerman had a carry permit?

    Why would he leave out a statement like that if George made it?

    And who can dispute that "enhanced" image? No one knows the real extent of GZ's injuries to say it's accurate or not. IMO, it was irresponsible to put that picture out there.

    I am thinking that is the case. I am just trying to put some thoughts together.

    The photo is enhanced but I'm leaning to there at least being a mark or bruise of some sort back there because a) it shows in the enhanced photo and b) the officers attention was drawn to the back of his head in the beginning of the video.

    How do red streaks suddenly appear out of nowhere and only on one side and at a specific spot of his head? It should be all over his head if it's just a question of color saturation.

    Exactly~ I think most people that have CW permits carry the permit in their billfold.

    You can't be arrested for a concealed firearm if you have a permit.

    Makes no sense.

    Whether GZ told LE about that night or they looked into it, it does not matter.

    He had a permit. He broke no laws by carrying a gun.

    I think Officer Smith cherry picked things he put in that report to make Zimmerman look innocent. IMO
