Surveillance video obtained by ABC News seems to contradict the police report about the Florida man who fatally shot an unarmed teenager walking through a gated community at the end of February. The initial police report said that George Zimmerman was bleeding from the back of the head and nose, and he claims his victim, Trayvon Martin, had punched him in the face, knocked him down and bashed his head into the sidewalk. But this surveillance video, taken when Zimmerman arrived at the police station for questioning, shows no blood or sign of injury (beware, there's a stupid commercial preceding the silent surveillance video:
Zimmerman's lawyer later claimed that his client's nose had been broken in the scuffle, and also said his client felt "one of them was going to die that night," when he pulled the trigger. Trayvon's mother Sybrina Fulton told CNN last night, "We just looked at the video, and we were just surprised because according to the police report, he sustained injuries, Zimmerman sustained injuries. But when we looked at the video, it was obvious that there were no visible injuries."
Zimmerman was not arrested that night, merely taken in for questioning, and he has not been charged because a Florida law called "Stand Your Ground" permits murder in cases of self-defense.
