    In police video taken the next day, George says Trayvon jumped out from behind bushes and started to attach him. I don't see any bushes nearby.

    So far, based solely on the photos that have been shown of the body of the deceased, Mr. Trayvon Martin, it is surrounded by grass. How far away from the curb was his body where these purported injuries occurred? Also, if Mr. Martin inflicted the injuries to the face of Zimmerman as shown, are there any photographs showing the blood of Mr. Zimmerman on the hands of Mr. Martin or skin under his nails?

    The notion should be brought up that Trayvon could have been defending himself from a reasonable belief of an unlawful threat and applied the stand your ground law for himself. Once he saw a stranger approach him & noticed a gun, he may have feared for his life. The person who died could have been the one claiming self defense if he had a voice.
