Response to amuse bouche (Reply #22)

30. Police testimony says he was Zimmerman was injured.

 

I have yet to hear how Zimmerman felt threatened Mr City Manager.

Amended police testimony on the police report indicates that Zimmerman had a bloody nose and a bleeding wound on the back of his head, as well as having a wet, grass-covered back.

Note that I don't think this excuses Zimmerman, as he went looking for the fight that he got himself into.

But seems at least possible (assuming the police are not lying) that Zimmerman was in a physical fight with Martin prior to Zimmerman shooting Martin. This is corroborated by Martin's girlfriend's account of what she heard on the phone before it went dead (sounds of a scuffle).

Again, it seems pretty clear to me that Zimmerman went looking for a fight and thus precipitated the entire confrontation.
