So there’s a video now of George Zimmerman at the police station, and people are all up in arms in debating whether or not you can see any injuries on him. He claims Trayvon Martin had punched him and smacked his head into the pavement, and the shooting was in self-defense.
The thing? It doesn’t fucking matter if Trayvon beat Zimmerman to within an inch of his life.
The 911 call and Trayvon’s friend’s statement clearly show that Zimmerman got out of his car and went after Martin. Going by the “self defense” idea, anything Trayvon Martin did was in self-defense against a 40 year old grown man who had just run him down. In fact, just by what we know happened, if Trayvon had shot and killed Zimmerman it would have been excusable by the “stand your ground” law.
People are focusing on the wrong damn thing. They’re going on and on about whether or not Trayvon Martin injured George Zimmerman when the reality is that if Zimmerman had followed the 911 operator’s instructions and stayed in his car, none of this would have happened. He was the aggressor, so even if he got his nose broken and both his eyes blackened, that’s his fault. He initiated the altercation.
