A lawyer for Dr. Shiping Bao says the former medical examiner will be filing a $100 million lawsuit against Samford, Florida claiming he was unfairly terminated from his job. Bao also alleges both the state attorney’s office, and Sanford Police Department were biased against Trayvon Martin after he was killed.

During the trial, Bao testified the slain teen was “in a lot of pain, and that he was suffering,” after being shot my George Zimmerman in February 2012. He also changed his statement about how long Martin had been alive, adjusting his estimation from a few minutes to as many as ten.

“I believe he was alive one to 10 minutes after he was shot. His heart was beating until there was no blood left,” Bao said on the witness stand.

Bao’s attorney claims both the state and the Samford Police Department thought Martin “got what he deserved,” and failed to ask the medical examiner the types of questions that would have allowed him to explain that Martin was not the aggressor.

Willie Gary, Bao’s attorney, told WFTV in Florida, “He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things.”

“He wanted a question that would have allowed him to explain to the jury with scientific evidence how there was no way Trayvon Martin could have been on top of George Zimmerman,” Gary said.

This news is yet another blow to the Martin family as they continue to mourn their son. After the trial, Juror B29 told ABC News that she felt Zimmerman “got away with murder” because the prosecution failed to present enough evidence to prove their case. Evidence, Bao’s lawyer claims, he was ready to reveal had lawyers asked him the proper questions.

Bao’s allegations once again cast doubt on the validity of Zimmerman’s not-guilty verdict. Since he was acquitted on both second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, he’s had two separate run-ins with police.

Just days ago, Zimmerman’s wife called 911 to say her estranged husband assaulted her father and threatened to shoot them both. He was released after she refused to press charges despite telling the emergency dispatcher she was “really, really afraid.”

  • No matter what the truth will come out. The truth is timeless. The truth of this case is roaring slowly but will soon roar loud for all to hear and know.

    I watched the trial, and I wondered why the DA was so lack. I screamed at my TV each time they refused to cross exam witnesses. Their own witnesses and experts testified for the defense, and the DA did a poor job of cross examining them! My friend and I decided that the DA deliberately lost the case. I personally concluded that taking the case to trial was political, and a ruse to stop a potential riot in Florida.

    George Zimmerman can now shout from the roof top that he killed Trayvon Martin intentionally, and there is nothing the justice system can do to him. There is this thing called “Double Jeopardy”, and Zimmerman cannot be tried again for the same crime. He was found not guilty. Perhaps in a civil trail new evidence will carry some weight.

  • I stated from the beginning that the prosecutor was throwing the case based on what they charge Zimmerman with. They know it would be almost impossible to convict him on that charge. They dhould of would for involuntary msn slaughter because his actions caused Trayvons death
