A not-so-great video of George Zimmerman, but …

Okay, so the video of George Zimmerman being taken out of a police car and being led into the police station after he admittedly shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to death in Sanford, Florida — a video that was released for public consumption Wednesday night — wasn’t the greatest quality.

So you can’t clearly make out the license plate number on the police car, that’s how inadequate the quality of the video is.

So you see in the police surveillance video a moment where one of the officers is looking at the back of Zimmerman’s head, where it’s alleged that Martin caused some kind of wound as he was allegedly beating up Zimmerman, and it’s hard to see any wound at all.

I’m still left with a few questions, as are most people who’ve seen it so there’s really nothing new from me in this article but I still feel the need to ask those questions.

  • I’ve heard it said by someone from the Zimmerman team that the wound to the back of his head almost miraculously closed up by itself by the time he got to the police station, so that’s why you don’t see it in the video.  Imagine that!  Are they sticking by that story, or does the story just keep changing on a daily basis, like so many stories we’ve heard from Zimmerman’s people?
  • The grass stain on the back of his jacket … where is it?
  • His shirt and the front of his jacket look pretty clean to me, and I don’t think the quality of the video is all THAT bad.  If a 17-year-old kid is pummeling him, shouldn’t Zimmerman’s attire look even the slightest bit blood-stained?
  • I saw an interview with the mortician who worked on Trayvon Martin, who said that aside from a gunshot wound to the chest there appeared to be no sign of Martin having engaged in a fierce battle with anyone.  Does that sound kosher?

Bottom line:  George Zimmerman and his team are running out of consistent stories to tell, and the ones that they’re telling so far just smell like a cow that’s been bloated and rotting for days.  Not good, George.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!

  1. Every time I see another Zimmerman cheerleader on TV (his dad, his brother, Joe Oliver, etc.) I just feel my blood pressure rising. It is beyond absurd, the stuff they’re saying. How they do it with a straight face is miraculous to me. Anyway, as far as I’m concerned, anything said outside of sworn testimony in a court of law (with evidence to back it up) means precisely diddly squat.

  2. But they’re all so GOOD at flapping their gums!
