George Zimmerman's Brother: Medical Records Will Prove Attack By Trayvon Martin

by at . Comments

George Zimmerman's brother Robert spoke on Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday to say that George is innocent, his life was in danger after Trayvon Marin attacked him violently, and that medical records will prove his brother's injuries were real.

Robert Zimmerman Jr. spoke to CNN last night, saying he wanted to correct some of the "mythology" and untruths that have been spread about the case.

"We're confident the medical records are going to explain all of George's medical history," Robert Jr. said. "His nose is swollen in that video. I'm his brother."

George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, said he shot Trayvon Martin in self defense after the teen attacked him the night of February 26.

Martin, 17, was walking through the gated community back to the house of his father's fiancee, was wearing a hoodie in the rain and was unarmed.

Sanford, Fla., authorities say Zimmerman has not been charged because there are no grounds to disprove his account that he acted in self defense.

Critics say Zimmerman, who is half Hispanic, racially profiled Martin, who was black.

The shooting of Martin has sparked an intense national debate about race, leading to widespread debate. It was even addressed by President Barack Obama.

Like the POTUS, Robert Zimmerman Jr. also called the shooting a tragedy, however, he warned that some of the responses by the media and public have shown bias against Zimmerman and degraded the memory of the deceased.

"This is a tragedy. Her son was lost," he said. "I feel very badly about that and I want, in the end, not for [Martin's] memory to be seen as how we degraded our system and turned it into mob rule and went into a hate speech."

"Ultimately, we all wish that this was a different situation."

Wednesday, Zimmerman's father, Robert Sr., said that Martin threatened to kill him, broke his nose and beat him so badly to the point where his son had no choice but to act in self-defense. Robert Jr. told the same story.

"You return force with force when somebody assaults you. George was out of breath, he was barely conscious. There would have been George dead if he had not acted decisively and instantaneously in that moment when he was being disarmed."

Martin's family and legal experts have questioned the Zimmerman's family version after the recent release of surveillance videos from Sanford police HQ.

The George Zimmerman police video shows him with his hands cuffed, exiting a patrol car and being led into the police station. The video does not provide close-ups, but also does not show clear signs of injuries on Zimmerman.

Here is another example of the misleading media: "the video does not provide closeups, but also does not show clear signs of injuries on Zimmerman". If the video doesn't provide closeups, then how will you see any signs of injury? This is a tragedy, and I don't like the loss of any human life. What Zimmerman did was save his own. He has been treated very unfairly by most media outlets. One even altered the 911 call to make it appear as if Zimmerman was racist. Witnesses have recanted their stories since public anger grew because of bs media. Zimmerman could be any one of us with a firearm who is acting in self defense. If Zimmerman is sent to prison, it will be because of fear of mob retaliation by the legal system, especially the jurors. I was in disbelief when I found out that charges were being brought against him.

This issue started with Martin going about his lawful business, while Zimmerman was not. Zimmerman was the predator stalking Martin. If Martin punched Zimmerman in the nose, knocked him down and repeatedly slammed his head into the ground...then Martin would have been fighting in self defense, as is Martin's right. Zimmerman's self defense claim is false.

One more thing: I get so sick of hearing Martin was being harassed, so he had to slam his head in the concrete and damned near kill him. If Zimmerman had tapped him on the shoulder and said "hello" what are you doing here? ...a thousand times..that doesn't give him the right to hurt Zimmerman. He damned near killed him. YOU JUST DON"T ATTACK SOMEONE LIKE THAT BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING FOLLOWED BY A NEIGHBORHOOD WATCHMAN.

Texas aka Emeraldcityshitter aka Etownbabe (whatever other aliases you are applying); I am an MSc student, not PhD yet but will get there one day God willing. If you are assuming that only PhDs submit dissertations you clearly havent been to college, after all it is often a requirement for undergrads in language departments. I wont hold that against you though, lots of smart people dont go to university. You are just not one of them.
