The current developments in the matter of Trayvon Martin’s untimely death, are summed up in one tweet:
Trayvon was shot in the heart, had traces of marijuana in his blood and a single scratch on one knuckle when he died.
Adding, I read today that he was shot at “intermediate” range. Not being a gun owner, I’m not sure what that means, but assume it means Trayvon was not right on top of Zimmerman when he was shot or else it would have been classified as “close” range. Wouldn’t it? And let’s look at the gun he was packing in violation of the neighborhood watch rules:
And yes, I saw the alleged photos from Zimmerman’s visit to the family doctor on the far right websites. As I understand it, that visit happened after he was released from police custody. I’m wondering why that much blood didn’t show at all on the videos of him walking into the police station. Also, particularly interesting since the wounds didn’t quite seem to match up with the official police photos of Zimmerman’s injuries either.
But even ignoring that, this is the conclusion that matters:
According to the documents, the Sanford police believed that the teen’s death was “ultimately avoidable,” if his killer, George Zimmerman, had “remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement” on that fateful night in February.
That’s it in one sentence. Zimmerman ignored the express advice of a law enforcement dispatcher to remain in his car. Justice hinges on that one indisputable fact. I hope we live it see it served.
