The Case Against George Zimmerman Just Got a Lot Tougher

The claim of self defense in the shooting of Trayvon Martin just got a little easier to justify:
A medical report compiled by the family physician of accused Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation.

Zimmerman faces a second degree murder charge for the Feb. 26 shooting that left the unarmed 17-year-old high school junior dead. Zimmerman has claimed self defense in what he described as a life and death struggle that Martin initiated by accosting him, punching him in the face, then repeatedly bashing his head into the pavement.

Also today, a trove of documents are being examined by lawyers for both the defense and prosecution as part of discovery in Zimmerman's trial -- including 67 CDs worth of documents, video of Martin on the night of the shooting, his autopsy report and videos of Zimmerman's questioning by police.

Zimmerman's three-page medical report is included in those documents that the defense could use as evidence.
Oh, and there's more.  Martin had scrapes on his knuckles when he died, undoubtedly from hitting Zimmerman.

There was a report that the FBI was considering hate crimes charges against Zimmerman. There's not a chance they could get a conviction on that, but it's Eric Holder's way of appeasing the race pimps.

Bottom line - I think Zimmerman walks on all charges.  At worst it's a hung jury.
