George Zimmerman profiled, stalked and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin. In his defense, the admitted killer is attempting to use the Stand Your Ground defense, a controversial defense allowed under Florida law. The following photos do suggest that Zimmerman sustained some injuries; however the law is not broad enough to cover Stand Your Ground on the part of the violent aggressor.
George Zimmerman has a long history of profiling Black male children. The fact that he pursued and stalked Trayvon Martin on the night the unarmed teenager was murdered is evident in eyewitness testimony, including even George Zimmerman’s taped phone calls to 911. All evidence points to the fact that it was actually Trayvon Martin exercising the Stand Your Ground defense when he was profiled, stalked and attacked by George Zimmerman.
There was enough evidence for Florida’s State Prosecutor to file 2nd degree murder charges against George Zimmerman in the case. The federal government also believes there may be enough evidence to charge Zimmerman with a federal hate crime. The indication of any bruising or wounds sustained to Zimmerman during the altercation do not negate the fact that Zimmerman was the clear aggressor in this case.

Michael Brandy, one of the paramedics who treated Zimmerman on the night he murdered Trayvon Martin, reported that Zimmerman had “bleeding tenderness to his nose, and a small laceration to the back of his head. All injuries have minor bleeding.” A professional review of Zimmerman by trained paramedics immediately following the shooting did not warrant a trip to the emergency room or any further medical attention.
Trayvon Martin, on the other hand, was shot with a .9mm firearm and pronounced dead at the scene. His lifeless body was transported to the coroner’s office. Trayvon Martin thought he was making a quick run to get some snacks and never made it home. Trayvon Martin is believed to be the only victim in this case. State prosecutors believe Martin was illegally profiled, stalked and murdered in the second degree. If Trayvon Martin chose to enact the Stand Your Ground law at some point prior to being murdered, he was well within his legal rights to do so.
