Wednesday, ABC News obtained video from the Sanford PD that showed George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin’s killer, as he was being led into the police station for questioning. The video, which shows a well-built Zimmerman getting out of the police car unassisted and without blood or bruises to his face and head, contradicts his claims that Martin bashed his head into the concrete, broke his nose, and began viciously beating him.

This video comes on the heels of the information that the lead detective in the case wanted to arrest Zimmerman because he didn’t believe his self-defense story, but was overruled by Sanford PD’s former police chief, Bill Lee.

Wednesday night also saw the apparence of George Zimmerman’s father, retired judge Robert Zimmerman, who condemned the NAACP, President Obama and others for their “hate” against his son. The elder Zimmerman told MyFoxOrlando that his son was in fear for his life and that Martin was viciously attacking him before the shooting. However, the police surveillance video and the Florida funeral director who prepared Trayvon Martin’s body contradicts Zimmerman’s claims.

Last night on MSNBC’s the Last Word, the funeral director told host Lawrence O’donnell that he did not see signs of a vicious fight (no abrasions to the hands or knuckles), as Zimmerman claims, on Trayvon’s body–only a gunshot wound.

In light of these latest developments, the attorneys for the Martin family are hoping for an arrest of the man who killed their son.

  1. From what I saw I didn’t see any injuries that support his story of being viciously attacked by Trayvon, maybe there is a scratch but certainly no major injuries. Also, if he did receive medical attention why are there no bandages on the cuts on the back of his head or for his broken nose? So many unanswered questions.

    I will just wait for the police photographs that were taken of Mr. Zimmerman since he is claiming to be the victim. I am an attorney and I have represented clients in criminal court and usually they take pictures of injuries as a normal part of compiling the police file. If there are no pictures then again the Sanford PD have proven to be either a part of a cover-up or simply incompetent.

    I felt a coverup was going on. Ew his dad’s an exjudge…more foolishness to come. Here’s what worries me….this can lead to tampering, witnesses being thrown out and all. I’m worried this might get thrown out because of how it’s being handled…….this boy may never see justice by the laws hands if these kinds of mistakes keep happening.
