    If his nose was bleeding as he says and if there was a fight as he says should he not have blood on his cloths? I mean if his nose was bleeding, you would see some blood on his shirt. From what I can tell there was none. This is sad and a obvious cover up. The entire police department should be investigated for this travesty!

    And regarding him claiming self defense.... how can he possibly do that? How can someone who pursued another claim to be only defending themselves? I mean come on, he clearly disobeyed orders from the dispatcher telling him NOT to pursue. He was the obvious attacker!

    The Zimmerman tapes shows no bllod or injury. Zimmerman is fabricating a story to protect him. I recall one of the female resident stating she saw Zimmerman leaning over Trayvon after shooting him and putting his hand on his chest and then touching the back of his head in shock. If any blood was on the back of Zimmerman's head it is most likely Trayvon's blood that he smeared on his bald scalp, which is why there is no wound seen on his back. The blood stain are easily wiped clean with alcohol swab. The cops never even photographed him or took any evidence from him or did any interview. Such lousy cop work and terrible justice done twice to him.

    What is the protocol for the Sanford Police if the suspect/victim has blood on them? If Zimmerman has blood on him, wouldn't the officer have had on latex gloves to protect himself from blood borne disease? They aren't treating like someone that has blood on him.

    Anderson, One other thing that I heard is that Trayvon was supposedly, according to one eye wittness, "on top" of Zimmerman.... and it was said he was in a "white T-shirt"........ IF that is true...WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS HOODIE???? When and how was the hoodie removed???? (also, obviously, Zimmerman persued Trayvon from the beginning or there would have been NO confrontation at all let alone a shooting death!) This whole thing is a cover-up and sickening... And yes, also racial.... A truly sad story for all of America... shame on anyone who tries to help cover this or make it ok in ANY way.

    If George Zimmerman had a broken bloodied nose and a head wound why didnt the
    police have gloves on – a necessity in this day and age. One officer wiped his hands
    on his pants but did not see any concern from him. Why????
