    George Zimmerman's Injuries

    IMO,this is going to be one of the most critical parts of the case. There is a lot of disagreement as to whether George Z was truly injured or not.

    I do believe he had some injuries-but as to the extent and severity I am not convinced.

    I understand that he does not necessarily have to be critically injured or anything for his defense to hold up-but we have been told that he was badly injured so that is what the story is going to be.

    Let's move the discussion regarding Zimmerman's injuries to this thread.

    I know this is a hot topic so please do your best to be respectful of one another's points of view.

    What bothers me about this pic, is that he never once grabbed his bleeding head. Maybe I am just weird but I always grab my toe when I stub it. Or my elbow/funny bone when I hit it. But this picture clearly shows no such attempt to protect or staunch the bleeding.

    If someone had just banged my head I would have instinctively placed my hands on the injury.

    What bothers me about this picture is that I've bled worse from cutting my legs while shaving! This is not a picture of a man's head that was repeatedly slammed into the concrete.

    Just wanted to add that Zimmerman would have what is described as road rash if his head were repeatedly slammed into concrete. You can do a Google search on road rash and select images to get a very good idea of what this type of injury would look like. I won't link because there are some graphic photos there. You will see a major difference between the "injuries" that Zimmerman has versus a true case of road rash.

    Front shot of GZ the night of the shooting after saying he sustained a broken nose. No blood visible on the shirt or jacket.

    I know! So weird since he was supposed to be choking on so much blood that was rushing down his throat through his nasal cavity. I would expect for him to have coughed some of that blood up?

    What bothers me about this photo is WTH is someone taking picture of blood rather than the wound(s). Head wounds just bleed heavily even when the wound is insignificant.
    http://www.cigna.com/individualandfa...39875spec.html
    Minor cuts on the head often bleed heavily because the face and scalp have many blood vessels close to the surface of the skin.
    http://www.ehow.com/how_2286260_trea...inor-head.html
    Head wounds tend to bleed a lot more than wounds on other parts of the body, as there are several blood vessels in the head between the scalp and the skin
    Do we know who took that picture and why they didn't photograph the actual wound(s)??

    Or why that person's first reaction was to photograph George's head and not help the kid lying on the ground dying? George was up, moving around, and making a phone call. He was fine! Trayvon was not!

    I haven't read/heard who took the pic, other than it was a neighbor. FT? maybe? He seems to be in the middle of all this somehow. JMO MOO IMO

    We've had Joe Oliver state that it was the police who took the photo with an iPhone and Frank Taaffe claiming it was a neighbor who took the picture.

    Either way, it was someone who knew George, as George told this person to call his wife.

    EXACTLY! The few inches above that ankle bone!?!? How can a cut that you can't even see bleed so much that I think I might bleed out?!

    The blood makes it look so dramatic but...wounds....I need to see the wounds before I can believe that these were any worse than what my children would come home from the playground with.

    Honestly, in the back of my mind (so I guess that would be IMO) I am thinking that it may be a police photo. It would go right along with the, again IMO, ridiculously incomplete investigation this appears to have been from the very start.

    If it is George in the pic and he's on the phone, then why didn't he dial his wife himself? Is he talking to someone else?

    I think the problem with the picture is that according to LE's report he was in cuffs at that time????

    IMO, I am betting that GZ was calling his former magistrate dad, to help him figure a way out of this mess.
