Is anyone else having problems with the cause of the injuries to George Zimmerman’s head? Yep me too. At first glance some of the photos look bad . But when George’s wounds are cleaned up at SPD the next photos show the wounds are really quite small. Even in the cleaned up photos. I’ve shaded what I believe to be the extent of the major wounds to the back of his head below
As a former firefighter the puncture wounds seem inconsistent with being hit against concrete. Scalp wounds have specific characteristics due to these factors.
- The skin on the scalp is stretched over the skull.
- The scalp is well supplied with blood
If Zimmerman had his head repeatedly hit against concrete, to the extent the defense team are purporting, a high degree of bruising would result and major wounds would likely to have split open.
For anyone who has fallen on concrete you know you get a graze/road rash type wound. If Zimmerman’s head hit on the edge of a concrete slab there would be a linear wound with a high degree of bruising.
If he had been punched in the nose why would he have the small puncture wounds on the tip and towards the top of his nose?
The cleaned up Zimmerman photos taken at Sanford Police Dept show small punctures and lacerations to the scalp and nose
So what else ‘COULD’ have caused the injuries?
Notice my wording, this is put forward as an alternative not a 100% belief, there are so many variables, exagerations, witnesses, changes in this case it is important to keep an open mind
Look around the site of Trayvon’s death. The conditions were very dark, there may have been both running and /or an altercation in an area where these trees are.
Check out the video re-enactment (9m:30s forward). Do you see the height of the limbs. Also notice how closely spaced they are. Imagine running or even fighting in near pitch darkness.
I’ve been criticised by the haters, but surely this has to be a possibility. If you’ve ever been scratched by bushes/trees doing yardwork or hiking , whatever you know that you can get these kind of injuries.
The photos show the condition of the trees at ‘The Retreat at Twin Lakes’ in February 2012. They are devoid of leaves. It is quite possible George Zimmerman could have either collided with a tree in pursuit of Trayvon or, collided with a tree while fighting with Trayvon
An ER worker I consulted with also said to me they believed these injuries to George Zimmerman were most likely caused by collision with thin, sharp tree limbs. They formed this professional opinion not just by speculation, but because they had seen exactly the same injuries that were caused in this way.
To the GZ fans/Skeptics I am not saying that a fight didn’t occur or disputing any medical reports (which for the record only say they ‘Likely’ that his nose was broken , not that it was) . A fight may have occurred that caused some of George’s injuries, but his reporting on his repeated beating against concrete doen’t ring true with the extent of his injuries
As an other point of interest this photo below shows an SPD photo of the side of Zimmerman’s head. As you will see blood flowed towards his ears.
For this to happen his head had to be in this position at some time. Face down, as he was on top of Trayvon presumably.
