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.

Chris Brown accused of cellphone theft, that is where Splashnymph said she had a 12 year old daughter. So hmmm Reed. This ship will go down, if I go, so will all of you. Reed I've had your IP address. You really do live in Texas! I'm done with this for now. You told off an elderly lady. Mostly we fought with each other, but now you guys are attacking people personally instead of the topic. God speed.

Wow! You went after an innocent 63 year old. Once again I did not rally against you. I've commented only a handful of times. I read Julies comments, you won't admit, she is smart. Once she realized how you are she calmly dug at your weakness. I can swear to God she is not me. If this all blows up you will see how wrong you were in thinking I am everyone.

Wow! Sounds like some real animosity among certain commenters. What about the subject at hand? I don't comment much on this site, but I check in and read lots of articles and commentary. I hold down a full time job, teach flute two days a week, and belong to two organizations that take up some of my after hours time. Yet I find time to check in here often. Sometimes during my lunch and coffee breaks. I don't understand why this Julie acts like she's so sure this other person is unemployed. I mean, like you're working on a doctorate? How do you get anytime to get on here at all! When I was getting my master's degree? I'd never have time to go on a gossip site. Doctoral work is even more demanding than that! Hey, it doesn't add up---SMH!

@ Julie Say, I'm curious. What is a doctoral candidate doing on a celebrity gossip site? I have a sister and a cousin who are doctoral students that wouldn't bother with a site like this. They have bigger fish to fry. I doubt you are working on a Ph.d. Just one of your stories you've woven. You live in a fantasy world, don't ya! If so, you're probably not capable of holding down a credible job. Sad, but there's help for that...so go get it, hon, It'll make all the difference. Maybe your black lesbo girlfriend can go all with you for support. Oh....and I am also a long-time friend of Texas. He actually told me about this site. Warned me of the freaks like you, but said, "You may just get a laugh out of it after all!"

@Julie OMG! For what reason did you feel a need to list your evening activities?!? And your point with this is...what? C'mon 67...you did that last night. Oh, you're working on a dissertation, eh? Hmmmmm.....possibly a cyber "project"...Like starts with a "Y"? Just tell the truth about yourself. Are you capable? Give it up! You are the one who morphs around under various identities...you have nothing but the internet. You are a full-time cyber troll and you know it. BTW, I'm a friend to Texas and proud of it. He has a woman. The one he calls Marilyn as in "Monroe"? Yeah, tall, long-legged and blonde. Yeah. Really.

OMG I say we band together and find Texas a date. In the past 24 hours I have had dinner with my boyfriend, completed the methodology chapter of my dissertation and finally watched Hunger Games. And the guy is still here dishing hate. No freaking way he has a job or any friends. The internet is his friend. The internet and his many invented personas. Lol. Truth is stranger than fiction. Off to Gawker. Shout out to my alleged alter-ego Tequilla. Have a shot on me gal!

By all indications from previous behavior, Zimmerman wanted to apprehend Trayvon and be able to turn him over to the police when they arrived and be labeled a hero for the community. The one problem was that Trayvon was Not the problem. I can easily believe that Trayvon felt uncomfortable knowing that someone was following him. Evidently Zimmerman did Not identify himself as "The" Neighborhood Watch,if he had maybe Trayvon would Not have Needed to walk faster (as told to his girlfriend) when he realized that he was being followed. Zimmerman got of his vehicle with the murder weapon, and whatever transpired after these two came in contact, Trayvon Martin ended up dead with Zimmerman's hand on that trigger. Signing off on this headline. PEACE!!
