Reported Damning Zimmerman Video Actually Shows More Support For Zimmerman’s Case….

Since we posted this initial thread exposing the manipulation by ABC news in their stolen “expose'” video, the Sanford Police Department has released the “official” copy of the same surviellance footage from the CCTV system from the police station.   The official versions carry the “Sanford Police Department” stamp in the upper right corner.

However, various media outlets are not NOTIFYING viewers when they scrub the stolen footage and replace with the “official” footage.  More evidence of the media manipulation.  *As a note in the “official” footage a “butterfly bandage” is clearly visible on the bridge of the nose of George Zimmerman.*….. /SD

Oh what a tangled web is weaved…..

A police surveillance video obtained by ABC news shows George Zimmerman’s arrival at the police station following the Trayvon Martin shooting.  It is being used by people, and manipulated by the media in an apparent attempt to bolster their case that Trayvon did not attack Zimmerman.

Watching the video many Trayvon advocates, and those with a vested interest in selling the Trayvon family story, are saying the video is damning to Zimmerman because they cannot make out any significant injuries to his face or back of his head.

However, there is something more evident, and far more damning, in the video than most observers are focusing on. A BFD (I’ll explain after the video).

First.  The “eye-witness named Jason” told police and reporters “the person calling for help, the guy on the bottom, was wearing a red jacket”.  Well obviously that’s exactly what Zimmerman is wearing in this video.

However supporters for the Trayvon family version of events point to the conspicuous absence of significant visible injuries to Zimmerman’s face or back of his head.  

But really what were the reported injuries?

Police statements and reports show upon their arrival they witnessed grass on the back of Zimmerman’s jacket, blood coming out of his nose, and blood from small cuts to the back of his head.  Zimmerman was treated by paramedics in the back of the police vehicle on the scene.  The paramedics were from the Fire Dept

Surveillance video of George Zimmerman arriving at a  Sanford, Fla. police station indicates what may be an injury to the back of his  head, a Daily Caller analysis shows.

The following day Zimmerman went to the emergency room where it was confirmed his nose was broken.  If you look at this screen shot it appears he has something covering his nose.

There is nothing in this video that disputes that police report, the responding officer’s statements, or contradicts anything Zimmerman said.

You would not be able to see any more evidence of a broken nose from this video.  If you’ve ever broken your nose, or been punched in the face, you understand.    That does not automatically lead to “significant visible injury”.   In short you wouldn’t be able to see a small cut on the back of his head no longer bleeding, nor would you be able to detect a broken nose from this video.   Period.

But there is a more visible, issue with this video.

   

Go look at it again.   This footage is video of a video.  Meaning that surveillance camera used in the police station does not move.  Yet the video is moving and shadowing the police and Zimmerman.

This is footage taken on an i-phone by someone recording the screen at a Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) panel monitor and feed.   You can tell in a few segments of the video that show the exterior frame of the monitor being filmed.  

Again, CCTV surveillance video cameras like this do not move.  They’re stationary fixed recording cameras.    This is a video shot of a monitor showing the CCTV digital video playback.

Why does this matter.?

Well first this proves this video was not released by the police department.  Nor was it leaked by the police department or it would have been footage from the actual digital recording.  They would not release footage from recording a monitor showing the footage, they would just copy the recorded image on DVD and present.

This is stolen and intentionally leaked “unauthorized” video footage from someone recording it from a monitor inside the Police Department.  Either by an employee of the police dept., or by a journalist who convinced an employee within the police dept to film it.

So why steal, sneak, and release the video? and why via ABC ?   Who does this benefit?  That’s the bigger type of question those of us who have been following the media manipulation want to know. 

Lets take a look at the report that accompanies the video from ABC and I’ll interject with a few thoughts that might help answer the question of who benefits and who stole it.   You can decide for yourself:

ABC –  A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who says he shot Martin after he was punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head slammed into the ground.

The surveillance video, which was obtained exclusively by ABC News, shows Zimmerman arriving in a police cruiser. As he exits the car, his hands are cuffed behind his back. Zimmerman is frisked and then led down a series of hallways, still cuffed.

Zimmerman, 28, is wearing a red and black fleece and his face and head are cleanly shaven. He appears well built, hardly the portly young man depicted in a 2005 mug shot that until a two days ago was the single image the media had of Zimmerman.

The initial police report noted that Zimmerman was bleeding from the back of the head and nose, and after medical attention it was decided that he was in good enough condition to travel in a police cruiser to the Sanford, Fla., police station for questioning.

His lawyer later insisted that Zimmerman’s nose had been broken in his scuffle with 17-year-old Martin.

In the video an officer is seen pausing to look at the back of Zimmerman’s head, but no abrasions or blood can be seen in the video and he did not check into the emergency room following the police questioning.

*snip*  The questioning lasted over 5 hours in the police dept.  It has been reported by police, and later by Zimmerman’s attorney that he went to the emergency room the next day.

Zimmerman was not arrested although ABC News has learned that the lead homicide investigator filed an affidavit urging Zimmerman be charged with manslaughter. The prosecutor, however, told the officer to not file the charge because there was not enough evidence [at that time] for conviction.

Zimmerman said he was heading back to his car when Martin attacked him. His lawyer, Craig Sonner, said his client felt “one of them was going to die that night,” when he pulled the trigger.

Martin’s girlfriend, who was on the phone with him in his final moments, told ABC News in an exclusive interview that she has not been interviewed by police, despite Martin telling her he was being followed.

*snip*  IMPORTANT.  Remember it was Florida Attorney General who said when being interviewed with Piers Morgan on Tuesday evening March 27th, that Trayvon’s girlfriend “had refused to cooperate with police and investigators”  up to that moment.   Bondi was hopeful that the girlfriend now named DeeDee would be more helpful to the newly assigned State Attorney General Angela Corey.

Again the question, why would DeeDee refuse to make a statement to police immediately following the shooting and why would she continue to refuse to talk to police and investigators, but yet sign an affidavit with the lawyer for the Trayvon family?

She would not swear under oath for the police nor be helpful or supportive in their investigation and case.   It is not a matter of her not being interviewed because the police don’t want to; it’s because she refuses to

The 16-year-old girl, who is only being identified as DeeDee, recounted the final moments of her conversation with Martin before the line went dead.

“When he saw the man behind him again he said this man is going to do something to him. And then he said this man is still behind him and I said run,” she said.

Phone records obtained by ABC News show that the girl called Martin at 7:12 p.m., five minutes before police arrived, and remained on the phone with Martin until moments before he was shot.

*snip*  Note: “Obtained by ABC news” from the Trayvon family because that’s the only way ABC would be able to get them.  And as early as March 21st Trayvon’s mother, Sylvia Fuller, stated she had them.  

DeeDee said Martin turned around and asked Zimmerman why he was following him.

“The man said what are you doing around here?” DeeDee recalled Zimmerman saying.

She said she heard someone pushed into the grass before the call was dropped.

Zimmerman, who had called 911, was asked by the dispatcher if he was following the teen. When Zimmerman replied that he was, the dispatcher said, “We don’t need you to do that.”

Martin’s death has sparked protests across the country and prompted President Obama to say that if he had a son, he would look like Martin.

Over the past few days, leaks have emerged suggesting Martin was dogged by discipline problems. [...]

[Trayvon family attorney Benjamin] Crump alleged that the Sanford police had leaked damaging information about Martin in order to muddy the case, calling it a “conspiracy.” Crump called the school disciplinary problems “irrelevant” to the case that “an unarmed 17 year kid was killed.”   (read more)

So who leaked the tape and why?

Occam’s Razor – Well obviously the phone records were provided to ABC by the Trayvon family.   So it would stand to reason that someone supportive of the Trayvon family would steal and release to ABC the footage from the CCTV camera(s). 

The Trayvon family and the Trayvon supporters, in the public, and in the media, believe this footage supports their version of events.

So the question of who they thought would benefit is an easy one, the Trayvon family.

The expose’ is really into who “they” are within the statement above.  They includes the team of Tracy Martin and Sylvia Fuller, along with their lawyers and Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, MSNBC, The Black Panthers, and perhaps more concerningly ABC NEWS.  

Is ABC news, home of former political advisor George Stephanopoulos, reporting the news, creating the news, or stoking the flames under the powder keg of faux-racism.?  Just to advance their elitist media control over opinion and thought which is usually aimed at the Starbucks Liberals.

There are many ideological components at work here.  Not the least of which is an ideological alignment between the  race baiting industry,  the insufferable institutional legacy media, and the progressive left -in all it’s forms-  who benefit from the division. 

*looking at you Mr. President*

    • Depending on the size of the police station they probably have 10 to 30 CCTV cameras.

      One of the bad things about seeing a filming of a monitor as opposed to the actual footage from the police, is the capacity to edit or select angles and optics to fit your narrative. I think that’s what’s at play here. You can tell when you watch the video and think about the fact it’s someone actually recording a monitor. You can tell what their interest or motivation is just like they’re a director in a movie. They are controlling what’s seen.

            I have been bruised and battered at various times, mostly from falls. No, swelling does not happen immediately, but will happen within the 24 hour period. I noticed this the last time I landed on my face and ended up with scrapes plus a black eye that needed medical attention, which I sought the next day after the fall. At the time I used a wet towel on my face which stopped the bleeding. Overnight it was excruciatingly painful and by the next day the shiner was apparent.

            On other parts of my body the bruising has sometimes been more rapid, such as when I had the fall as I was trying to get out of the bath. I ended up with a massive bruise on my leg which spread quite a bit within 24 hours…….. and then there was the fall when I hurt my knee which was more recent. It took about 24 hours for all of the bruising to show up… and then some more….

            Yet another occasion when I fell and injured my coccyx for the second time. The bruise on my butt was massive, but it too a few days to appear.

            On the other hand, when my middle son hit his head as he leapt off his father’s shoulders and hit his head on a little desk in his room, there was a lump that rose quickly. There was swelling and he had a hematoma. We took him to the hospital and they opened the area and then stitched him up again.

            I would suspect that since there was a cut on the back of the head of Zimmerman which had been bleeding is the reason why he did not have a lump on the back of the head. He did not end up with a blood clot!!

            As for the nose, the bruising would start to show by the next day, and the footage is not all that clear. There is sufficient evidence from the police reports that indicated that Zimmerman had blood coming from his nose at the time of the “crime” which is best described as when Travyon Martin punched Zimmerman in the face and then began beating on him as he was laying on the ground.

Because dude DOES NOT appear to have been in a “fight for his life” and if someone were pounding your head into the pavement over and over as Zimmerman has suggested…someone as young and strong as Trayvon is purported to have been, I suggest that Zimm would have had more than a scratch on the back of his head. AND a nose can be broken in many ways, not just by a punch. It could have happened if Trayvon was flailing to get away from the Madman of Sanford. Just saying that we all have a narrative: both sides want an outcome. Mine is an arrest and trial so that the truth can finally come out.

    If Trayvon’s family wants Zimmerman arrested immediately and the purported phone conversation between the girlfriend and Trayvon is so important to the case why wouldn’t the girlfriend cooperate with the special investigators right now? ABC News can’t arrest Zimmerman. If they want Zimmerman arrested she needs to talk to the police & investigators.

    Her hospitalization for stress is an interesting story, I believe they are setting the scenario where she is too fragile to meet with investigators and wants to submit an affidavit scripted by Trayvon’s attorneys so that she won’t be questioned by the investigators. I don’t know how she could avoid cross examination in a trial but I think a conviction is tertiary to the financial and political hay that is being made in this rerun of the Tawana and Duke fiascos.

    Finally if DeeDee is holding out for the grand jury and the Special Investigator now wants to avoid a grand jury what happens? Looking ahead I can see where she submits the written document and refuses to appear, goes out of state for medical treatment.

I know there have been famous cases where an “eye witness” close to the victim has made stuff up initially, and then been too far gone with the story to back away from it, until the police pressure to substantiate gets too much. Something, just a hunch, but something tells me much of this is paralleling a similar path.

      “IF” her version was true, why wouldn’t DeeDee contact anyone after Trayvon never called back or went missing? and then immediately following the discovery of his death why wouldn’t she talk to investigators or detectives.? Something’s rotten about this aspect.

    The video shows nothing to corraborate Martins story that he was walking back to his car when he was viciously attacked from behind. Far more convincing and relavent to the case is the actual recording of Trayvons conversation with his girlfriend in which he tells her he is being followed, someone, likely Zimmerman interrupts Trayvon the phone is dropped and goes dead. A good prosecuting attorney is going to have a field day with this case. Martin is obviously not telling the truth in this aspect of his story and thus the house of cards is already starting to crumble.

Another question I have to ask is how would it benefit the police dept. to do a cover up, after all this was a civilian issue, not a uniformed police issue, especially considering the fallout regarding the race issue which would happen.
        The news media is intentionally fanning the flames on this case to boost their ratings.

          Why doesn’t the black community teach their children to not join up in gangs and go around shooting people? The majority of white people aren’t going around shooting innocent people on the street.
          My kids are white and have been around guns all their life, however they were taught guns are not like video games, they can actually kill. They were taught how to properly handle a gun and they were taught you never ever point a gun at anyone unless it is in defense of your life and then you pull the trigger.
          The guns are just a tool for these thugs and gang bangers to use. You could remove all the guns and they’d still be robbing and killing. White people can’t fix this for black people, black people are going to have to fix their problems and playing the victim isn’t working.

          How preposterous that you use the Democratic Party frame work in prospering your arguments.Wherefore, Rush Limbaugh, is being utilized as a scape goat being portrayed as the evil centennial of the Republican party and as such the leader of the Republican Party, nonsense. pure Democratic Party propaganda.

          Furthermore, I have heard over the past several weeks from the metro Boston Black community a cautionary warning that guns must be prohibited and when gun violence comes to our white communities we will understand.While I cannot say that you are not a free thinker it is ironic that once more you are utilizing someone eases arguments to champion your cause.Lets examine this issue and start by noting that gun violence in this country is as statistically proven predominately a black on black crime.Furthermore, the guns being utilized are not owned by law abiding citizens and as a practical matter are illegal in nature.

          We next must look at the initiative of Mrs. Clinton in cooperation with the United Nations to enforce a gun ban world wide and for ultimately the United Nations to be the legislative body to dictate gun control and laws of the United States.This is not the basis of our constitution and usurps American citizens rights to bare arms.We also can look to the legal right to bare arms for the protection of life and property as a mandatory right of law abiding citizens.When filing for a gun permit it is mandatory that the party applying demonstrate that their gun permit is predicated on lawful purposes only.Of course, there is also another interesting statistic that shows in those states that enforce the strictest gun control laws crime is higher than in other states..

          With all due respect I must also add that Fox News has become for many of us the propaganda network of the Arab States and is certainly not the unbiased news reporting agency it once was and that perhaps is due to it’s present ownership.However, since you choose to utilize this news network as your example it once more enforces that you are following Democratic Party rhetoric.In closing, I would suggest that you follow your own words of wisdom and examine and solve the equation for yourself.

The police were so busy with murders and suburban white kid drunks that they were overwhelmed. I saw all the squads at the mall (a couple blocks from my building) on my way home from Mass that saturday evening. I thought it was because there were some big-shots in town for the upcoming primary (the Ritz Carlton is connected to that mall), but it was kids from “the hood” taking advantage of all the chaotic “merriment” A friend, who’s husband is a cop said that last bit was being squelched by the city and not getting any press.

There was no need to beat them, they would have given them whatever they wanted and what kind of sick individual would rape an 85 year old woman? I even read one article that quoted a cop saying it wasn’t a hate crime and their race would not have mattered. Sadly that’s probably true, they spend a lot of time killing their own race. I haven’t read about any vigils for this couple which one of them lost their life. Yet I did read that today the black community is having a “hoodie” vigil in support of a kid they didn’t even know.

    DeeDee is their last best hope. If the story does not match the reality, or her credibility is lost the entire “case”, weak as it may be, will collapse. As Tracy Martin and Sylvia Fuller use DeeDee more and more to prove their case. And if they place all their eggs in her basket, that is alot of pressure for a 16 year old to handle.

      Did Trayvon’s “girlfriend” record his call, or is her “story” just remembering as best she can?
      Did the police investigate the incident, or just ask a few questions and let Zimmerman go?

      We don’t know the “facts”. What we do know is that in the weeks leading up to this getting in the media is that a whole bunch of folks got involved who do not know the facts either. There was plenty of time to allow for a sympathetic picture to be painted by the usual supsects whenever a good racial “crisis” can be put together.

      While I’m not a bloodhound, this just doesn’t pass the smell test with the facts we have at hand. If Zimmerman did this in cold blood, let the justice system run it’s course. If it was done in self-defense, we need to gird ourselves for another “Rodney King” because the race-baiters aren’t going to let this one go so close to the elections.

        It depends upon where the knock happened. In what we have learned about Zimmerman, he was knocked on the back of his head, and he had an open wound. If that wound had not been opened then he would have had a sizeable egg on the back of his head. The shiner from the broken nose would have appeared 12-24 hours later.

    That type of graphic is designed to have text below the “ABC News Exclusive” title, but there’s no text there. Why not? What is the real purpose of that graphic and why is it placed there?

    A few short notes:You guys are forgetting that Trayvon’s girlfriend DeeDee is a CHILD (and yes, 17 is are still a child. Can’t vote, can’t drink, can’t sign your own leases, and they don’t know anything about life yet), so forgive her for not wanting to jump right into this nasty situation without conforming in attorneys-she has the rest of her life to think about. Not to mention she was on the phone with her boyfriend MOMENTS before his life was taken. I’m sure that wasn’t traumatizing or anything. You grown people should be ashamed of yourselves. You’re letting you’re hate for bias media take you to such a dark place that your taking shots at 17 year old girls. Also none of Zimmerman’s or the police’s stories make sense. AND let’s only consider what can be proven (the strategic placing of the overwrite does cover up the most important part, so let’s exclude it) For example: Police say they saw grass stains on his his back and also blood on his clothes, and claimed that supported Zimmerman’s story of self defense.They said they bagged his clothes and sent them to the lab for processing. Yet interestingly enough in the video (mentioned in the above article) he’s wearing a red jacket. No grass stains or blood anywhere, the same jacket that they ‘eye witness’ (also mentioned in the article above) saw him wearing during the indecent. Damn, how fast do things get processed at this lab? And did they dry clean it too?
    Also, lets assume his nose is broken and we just can’t tell, you should still see bruises that support the claims of his assault. A bruise is just discoloration, and I see that camera picks up color well despite being recorded on an I-phone. And that man who was supposedly beaten so badly he needed to use deadly force has not one blemish on his face. Check yourself guys: This might not be a racist crime, but the police department acted very suspiciously while handling this case and there needs to be some form of justice served here.

        Not what I want to believe. I did put why it didn’t make sense, but maybe it was too much to read so here’s the condensed version:
        -Zimmerman is claiming self defense
        -Police believed Zimmerman’s story because they claim they saw blood and grass stains on his clothes, then they say they bagged them and sent them to their lab for processing.
        – ‘Eye witness’ says that Zimmerman was wearing a red jacket, the same one he’s wearing in the video taken after they ‘sent his clothes to the lab’. No grass or blood stains to support the self defense claim Zimmerman told police. The evidence is in front of your eyes, open them and I promise you will see better :)

        This is OJ all over again, if the police did there job properly this wouldn’t be a problem.

        All of you here keep saying he’s innocent based on stand your ground and self defense. I haven’t said he’s innocent or guilty. I’m saying he has to PROVE that he was, “justified in the use of deadly force and did not have a duty to retreat if:
        He reasonably believed that such force was necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself” (that’s the FLORIDA law-not shoot first ask questions later. Do your research or just focus on NY) Does the man in that video look like he was just beaten so badly he needed to use deadly force? He’s not even carrying himself like he had a rough night, just strolling through the station, like it’s just another day. He’s not even shaken up by the fact that he just took another’s life, but that’s besides the point. This man clearly overreacted in a situation he placed himself in. A situation he was TOLD NOT TO PURSUE by someone from 911 while on the phone with them. He called the police, he did the right thing. THEN he took it upon himself handle the situation. And that’s where he went wrong, and where stand you ground is no longer applicable. That’s why he needs to be put on trial and be PROVEN innocent or guilty. Now let’s talk about what YOU don’t want to believe.

              First off, in your neighbour’s case the incident was in a home where it was possible to go and collect clean clothing.

              In this particular case this was on the street, meaning that there was no access to fresh clothing…. they had to wait until they got to the police station where the clothing was removed after they went inside.

              What is on the CCTV footage is a man who is still in his clothing after arrival at the police station where he was processed and questioned for 5 hours. During that time the clothing was removed and I assume that he was given clean clothing.

              This is why you are wrong about when the clothing was taken.

          There is a little something that you left out… and the media narrative has been ignoring. Travyon Martin was shot at close range. If the incident really occurred as the racist Al Sharpton and co are making out then Travyon Martin would not have been shot at close range.

          If you had bothered to read the excellent analysis made by Sundance Cracker, then you would see that the coroner’s report states that there were injuries to the fingers of the deceased, and that there was gunpowder on his hand.

          Yes it is true that George Zimmerman, the Hispanic, had a gun on his person. He is licensed to carry the gun. During the scuffle in which Zimmerman was repeated punched by the deceased thug by the name of Travyon Martin, the gun was revealed, and the deceased thug tried to reach for the gun. Only one shot was fired from the gun because a hand was preventing any further shots.

          After reading the account numerous times I am of the opinion that George Zimmerman never intended to use the gun, but that he was trying to prevent the deceased from getting hold of the gun when it was fired.

    Trayvon screwed up. Big time! He tried to play the thug and ended up dead. In the final analysis, his death is his own fault. He could have made better decisions and avoided the whole situation. Many, many young men – and boys – have made the right decisions, in spite of their family life, school life, peer pressure…whatever. Trayvon didn’t. And he paid a price for it.
    In all honesty, I have a hard time finding any sympathy for him – or for his parents. (Well, his parents don’t need sympathy. They’ve got their trademarks and the expectation of big bucks to come. Unfortunately, they’ll find themselves dropped like a cold Fluke when things don’t pan out for the powers that be. They just won’t be of any use to them any longer.)

              The issue is you fuel up on the garbage presented on Prog propaganda sites and then come over here and regurgitate the same talking points. Take.It.Elsewhere.
              Young people like to impress us with how smart they are, yet I must ask – what ever happened to “Question EVERYTHING” and decide for yourself.
              Your comments posted here so far have not demonstrated any independent thought or analysis, just vomiting forth the programming you’ve ingested elsewhere.

                I’m not trying to impress anybody through a computer screen. This is who I am. I speak like this to friends and family, I’m not making a spectacle on your message board because I’m trying to show off. The only reason I’m here is because a ‘friend’ of mine linked up this article on facebook. I’m a firm believer in everyone having their own opinions. There’s nothing wrong with a healthy debate. Everyone has different opinions, I never claimed mine were right. Do you think being on the opposite side of the media makes you more right, and able to draw your own conclusions? Or do you think you’re hate for distorted, bias media has made you blind to certain things I’m saying? Have you drawn your own conclusions, or do you just naturally go against whatever liberal media tells you? And I love how my age wasn’t a factor until I made it known, but now that I’ve said it I’m categorized in the young people folder and you’ve generalized me. You don’t know me the same way Zimmerman didn’t know Trayvon. We’re not all the same

                  Much of what you say here is true. That being said, youth is what it is. Some good, some inexperienced. Your age does influence what you think and say. That’s why I suspected you might be a Ron Paulite – you have the youth in common with that group.

    I hate to burst this burst the bubble but this isn’t stolen video or enhanced anything. What this is, is your typical CCTV system inside the station house that has been released to the media most likely with its own built in player software for the purposes of evidence standards and requirements. Its is not alterable or able to be altered by design and usually encryption depending on the mfg of the system.
    What you are seeing is the player is being “zoomed” into the image probably by the media engineer, which creates the loss of definition because they are analog type cameras not the newer digital cameras or megapixel versions. If they were you would be able to count hairs. The fact that it is stationary is the only reason the image is as clear as it is.
    There is no evidence in the video of a cover-up or hiding anything. I know this because I do it for a living and have done so for 30 odd years. If any of you have any decent web cam security systems at home you probably have better pics than these all the time. Take my info as it is intended. Maintain Your Focus.
    We have way too many real intrusions and transgressions against us to focus on without allowing our attention and focus to be diverted by misinformation and redirection. Dont watch what they direct your attention to watch their other hand as they run up the BS meter around the country. The only purpose of this Trayvon Martin case is to cause division and anything that helps promote that division is contrary to restoring our liberty. The fervor by the domestic enemy in this instance is to lay the groundwork for racial strife and opposition before, during and after the election if we even have one.. Occupy is gearing up for the warm weather and they will both become big problems at just the right time.. Watch where Van Jones, Sharpton and Jackson traipse around the country and watch the Occupy scum too.. they are all prepping for the heat.

      Actually, you can tell that this is a video of the video on the CCTV screen. Look at the 30 second mark and again at the 55 sec or so marks, where you can see the edges of the viewing area. Also, ABC did not get this video from an authorized source (the police department).

      While I agree that this is being used as a distraction, I think this is an obvious attempt to color the narrative, especially since they cover up the most interesting part of the video with the ABC logo block.

      It’s been a huge distraction away from Oblamer’s failed policies. But his embracing Martin as “what his son would look like” brought to light another of his flaws. Our wonderful leader is himself a racist. He attended rev. wright’s church for what 20 years? wright is still an unrepentant bigot and no need to let that rest. But I agree, Oblamer’s policies with the moslem world, his seemingly intentional misdirection of our economy, his antagonistic treatment of Israel, his gun-running in Mexico to undermine the Second Amendment, Solyndra, on and on. Fallout from all this should be raining down on his head 24/7 until he’s gone.

  28. I have a well trained eye when it comes to video evidence and does anyone not notice the cop signaling Zimmerman to push his back against the wall? That cop was definitely not pulling up his pants for the gesture was made facing Zimmerman and Zimmerman knew exactly what to do.
