A video showing George Zimmerman being taken from a police car in handcuffs, no sign of a claimed bloody nose, gashed head, or damp grass-stained jacket, throws new and ominous shadows on the case of slain Trayvon Martin.
Obtained by ABC News, no mention of how, or why Sanford police didn’t release it, it was accompanied by a report that the police had been intending to arrest Zimmerman until ordered not to by Florida’s State Attorney, Norman R. Wolfinger, [photo left] of the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit, which includes Seminole County, with a building and offices at 101 Bush Boulevard in Sanford. Taken by sentinel cameras immediately after he’d killed Trayvon Martin, the video is shocking because of what it does not show.
— It does not show a bloody broken nose.
— It does not show injury to the back of his head.
— It does not show grass stains or moisture on his back
— It does not show evidence that he’d been thrown to the ground and mauled to the point of being forced to defend himself with a gun.
— It does not show a person who exhibits the slightest sign that he’d just shot and killed another human being,
Zimmerman stands impassively while he is searched, is then conducted to the entrance, at which point an inside camera picks him up as he proceeds to the interior of the building.
Why did State Attorney Wolfinger order Sanford’s police chief Bill Lee, not to place Zimmerman under arrest? On whose behalf was he acting? Does it have anything to do with the fact that Zimmerman’s father, Robert Zimmerman, is a retired U.S. Magistrate Judge? Did Chief Bill Lee “temporarily step down” so that he would not be around to testify that he’d been given his orders by Wolfinger? Did Wolfinger operate with or without knowledge of Florida Governor Rick Scott?
The bizarre turns of this increasingly Gothic crime case do not dim the heartbreaking tragedy at its core—a youth cut down on the brink of manhood. And it cries loudly for light and justice.
