Photo appears to show Zimmerman
bleeding after Trayvon Martin killing

CNN, by Staff*

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 12/3/2012 4:19:54 PM

A photo posted online Monday shows George Zimmerman with blood on his nose and lips. His attorneys say it was taken the night unarmed teen Trayvon Martin was killed in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense. Martin´s attorneys say he was shot and killed "in cold blood." Prosecutors have charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder for the February 26 killing. The picture, posted Monday on Zimmerman´s defense website, was taken by a police officer, Zimmerman´s attorneys wrote. The state had previously provided a black-and-white copy of the image,

To quote our Vice-President, this is a big (fill in the blank) deal. The B&W photo looks like facial hair and the color photo looks like a good beating.

Zimmerman had no scrapes or cuts on his hands. Martin did. This photo shows that Zimmerman was the object of an assault. Zimmerman will walk.

More pictures will not matter, either will eye witness testimony of a dozen observers. Read the comments after the article and the positions are the same as when this event happened, Unwavering support by the black community, despite the evidence against Travon. No one has the temerity to publish the CURRENT photos of Travon in full thug regalia that are readily available. Even blowhard O´Reilly persisted in posting the cute pics of him as a child. This will not end well.

This man has already been trough too much... First he is assualted by a thug... then he is accused of racism and is the target of death threats for having the never to defend his own life against said thug.
Now he has been pu through the ringer yet again by UNETHICAL prosecuters who grovel before political correctness and black racist hate mongers... and an UNETHICAL judge who also could´t wait to pander to those same race hustlers...
ENOUGH ALREADY !!! When will this man get some JUSTICE ???

I made the mistake of reading the comments. People are morons, but the media ... those people are headed straight to the hot place when they leave this earth. God said "do not bear false witness", and they have done it again and again. They don´t worry because they´re atheists but that won´t keep them cool in perpetuity. The comments themselves are rife with disinformation fed to those posters by Martin´s parents´ team and by the media.

Sick and twisted.

Media bias in crime reporting is beyond the power of mere words to describe or denounce.

Muslim tries to blow up SS employees in Arizona? Crickets. Sleeping crickets.

A ninety-something white couple -- the wife is raped then murdered, and the husband [G-d keep him!] is in ICU. The crickets are comatose.

Ah, but St. Trayvon? Who not only beat Zimmerman, but came back looking for him to make the attack [that´s forgotten too]. But no -- it´s St. Trayvon´s Feast Day. Again.

I ask -- have you had enough?

Does anyone even understand the term cold blood anymore? If there is a fight and someone gets killed, then by definition it is hot blood. It seems to be spokesmen for the police that have so distorted the term.

Saint Trayvon was playing the ghetto game called knockout, in which the thug sucker punches the victim. Saint Trayvon probably was trying to impress the girl who he was talking with on his cell phone.
Unfortunately for Saint Trayvon, he picked on the wrong person.
These photos are important, but too late - ABC news, and NBC news, ran photos of Zimmerman that did not show any injuries. The photos were the catalyst for the stampede to find a special prosecutor, the obese woman whose name mercifully escapes me. The photos of Saint Trayvon, taken when he was about 11 years old, sealed the deal for Zimmerman´s murder charges.

Trayvon Martin was a Jovan Belcher starter kit - without the size or ability to play football. I am so sick of hearing these gangsta´s turning into saints once they get what´s coming to them. Too bad that they´ve screwed up other people before they got their come-uppance.

I remember reading about the timeline tracking Trevon to and from the store where he purchased "skittles and soda."

The cameras along the way indicated a timely walk to the store. The cameras at the store show Trevon offering the clerk some money to purchase some "blunt" cigars. The clerk refused.

The store cameras then show 2 or 3 individuals enter the store and purchase the "blunts" previously refused to Trevon. The article intimates that Trevon was outside waiting for them.(video tape shows the exchange)

The timeline now for Trevon to walk back to the condo becomes very distorted. What was a 10 or 15 minute walk to the store became a 30 minute walk back to the condo. (Surmising - Trevon used both the "blunts" and soda to make a street cocktail of drugs.)I can´t remember the "street" name.

According to experts, a hard line is north of a red line, but south of the “unbelievably small strikes” that Kerry is fond of. It’s not clear what will happen when the “hard line” is crossed. It may involve… 1. A phone call from John Kerry to anyone in Russia who still takes his calls for laughs warning that Russia is on “the wrong side of history.” 2. Sanctions against the Deputy Under-Governor of Southern Siberia 3.

What if the missing Malaysia
plane is never found?
Associated Press, by Nick Perry and Kristen Gelineau    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 3/19/2014 7:29:03 PM     Post Reply
WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The plane must be somewhere. But the same can be said for Amelia Earhart´s. Ten days after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared with 239 people aboard, an exhaustive international search has produced no sign of the Boeing 777, raising an unsettling question: What if the airplane is never found? Such an outcome, while considered unlikely by many experts, would certainly torment the families of those missing. It would also flummox the airline industry, which will struggle to learn lessons from the incident if it doesn´t know what happened. While rare nowadays, history is not short of

GENEVA - Russia signaled concern on Wednesday at Estonia´s treatment of its large ethnic Russian minority, comparing language policy in the Baltic state with what it said was a call in Ukraine to prevent the use of Russian. Russia has defended its annexation of Ukraine´s Crimea peninsula by arguing it has the right to protect Russian-speakers outside its borders, so the reference to linguistic tensions in another former Soviet republic comes at a highly sensitive moment.

Kiev - Ukraine ratcheted up its standoff with the Kremlin on Tuesday by threatening to nationalise Russian property in response to Crimea´s claims to its own assets in the breakaway Black Sea peninsula. (Snip) Russia´s state-owned natural gas giant Gazprom has a vast pipeline network running through Ukraine that feeds clients in southern and western Europe. Other top Russian assets in the former Soviet nation include branches of Sberbank -- the largest lender in Russia and third-biggest in eastern Europe.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Stuck for 26 months in a grim Iranian prison, Shane Bauer often let his mind drift to the shores of Oakland´s Lake Merritt. He would daydream of jogging around the bustling urban lake on a sunny day. And when he and cellmate Josh Fattal surprised Sarah Shourd, Bauer´s fiancee, with a makeshift birthday celebration in the Tehran prison´s courtyard, they all imagined picnicking together on a lakeside lawn. Now the three University of California, Berkeley, graduates who in 2009 inadvertently hiked from Iraq into the hands of the Iranian military have written an intimate memoir about their

First lady Michelle Obama is getting ready for her third overseas trip without her husband since arriving in the White House, but her journey to China may be watched more closely. Mrs. Obama will be traveling with three generations. She´ll be joined by Sasha, Malia and her mother, Marian Shields Robinson, a subtle gesture to traditional Chinese values. White House officials are calling this visit a "people to people" trip.

The southern Indian Ocean, where investigators suspect missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have come down, is one place where a commercial airliner can crash without a ship spotting it, a radar plotting it or even a satellite picking it up. The empty expanse of water is one of the most remote places in the world and also one of the deepest, posing potentially enormous challenges for the international search effort now refocusing on the area, one of several possible crash sites.

At Obamacare enrollment events around the state, recruitment organizers emphasize the positive reasons for buying coverage on the insurance marketplace, like staying healthy and getting financial assistance to help pay their monthly premiums. But there’s also the punitive side of the law: how much those who don’t enroll will have to pay at tax time next year. The deadline to enroll is coming fast — March 31 — and many people don’t realize they could be paying far more than the $95 flat fee talked about in the early days of the law, according to enrollment counselors, income tax preparation

As Americans have been learning in recent weeks, Russia sometimes has its own way of describing events—like when Vladimir Putin claimed on March 4, despite the presence of Russian troops on the ground, that he hadn’t invaded the Crimean region of east Ukraine. Then there’s the narrative about what is spoken in that invaded country: namely, the Ukrainian language. (Snip) The claim that Ukrainian isn’t a language has been one of the drumbeats of the Russian-Ukrainian relationship for centuries. It’s true that the distinction between a language and a dialect is notoriously slippery, often more about politics than mutual intelligibility

MOSCOW — With a referendum on secession looming in Crimea, Russia massed troops and armored vehicles in at least three regions along Ukraine’s eastern border on Thursday, alarming the interim Ukraine government about a possible invasion and significantly escalating tensions in the crisis between the Kremlin and the West. The announcement of the troop buildup by Russia’s Defense Ministry was met with an unusually sharp rebuke from Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, who warned that the Russian government must abandon what she called the politics of the 19th and 20th centuries or face diplomatic and economic retaliation from a

If the justices previously believed it a safe bet that they would be replaced by mainstream liberal justices when they retire, perhaps now they´ll realize their only reasonable course of action is to retire this spring, pending confirmed replacements.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said.
