Court records show George Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.That's interesting. What is also interesting is to consider the non-fatal wounds that Trayvon Martin's body revealed.
Local station WFTV also reported Tuesday that an autopsy report showed the only injury Martin had -- aside from a fatal gunshot wound -- was broken skin on his knuckles. The injury noted in the autopsy report could support Zimmerman's claim that Martin punched him in the nose before slamming his head on the sidewalk.Oops. It looks like maybe, just maybe, Zimmerman was convinced that he was in danger of death or great bodily harm when he shot Martin. Sounds like a self-defense claim to me. Sounds like a convincing self-defense claim that medical records support.
