Trayvon Martin: ABC Enhances George Zimmerman Video

Hal Boedeker, Orlando Sentinel, April 2, 2012

Reporter Matt Gutman said the clearer video shows “what appear to be a pair of gashes or welts on George Zimmerman’s head.”

ABC News has re-digitized video of George Zimmerman taken shortly after Trayvon Martin‘s shooting.

The video was unveiled as an exclusive this morning on ”Good Morning America.” ABC was the first news organization to show the original tape.


Gutman said the video had been “clarified” by Forensic Protection Inc. Former FBI Special Agent Brad Garrett told ABC that the clearer video shows “marks on the back of Mr. Zimmerman’s head.”

    They should interview Jared Taylor on CNN/Fox/whatever Mainstream channel will take him, and let Jared expose what happened.

      I am sure he won’t refuse to talk to them,

      • Djinn42

         It’s because some people don’t want to hear the truth or have it be known.

    I saw a crummy video of the Z-man and it was clear he had a wound on the back of his head.

      Especially since a cop was inspecting it.

  • On top of that, ABC is artificially lightening Zimmerman’s skin tone to try and sell him as “white.”  

    Combine that with NBC butchering the 911 recordings, and what does this mean?

    The media are trying to provoke race riots, for ratings (“if it bleeds, it leads, if it burns, it earns”) and they somehow think that riots help Obama.

      Race riots will be peddled on MSM as “more proof that America is still a deeply racist country where Diversity has no voice other than justified rage”.

    • Xanthippe2

      Race riots?  Maybe.  Maybe not so much if Whites aren’t taking part as aggressors (they don’t want a bunch of YouTubes with Whites as victims).  More like they are trying to demonize Whites, demonize guns, and trying to get the laws changed so that legal self-defense is more difficult.

  • redshirts

    The fascinating thing about this poor, oppressed Son of Obama story is that is is building toward a scheduled event, just like the OJ trial built toward the verdict event, and just like the first verdict of the “racist cops” who tried to beat some respect for the law into Rodney King led to the 1992 race riots.

    All the hysteria right now isn’t just designed to pressure the special investigator and the FBI to find cause for arresting Zimmerman. $harpton, Inc., is wins mostly if the authorities determine that there is not enough probably cause for an arrest.

    Then, everything goes BOOM, just like it did in Detroit in 1967.

    $harpton really wants enough mayhem to get an updated Kerner Commission report that blames Whitey and starts the rollback of our gains from the Tea Party and gives energy to the Obama reelection.

    For them, worse is always better. But for us, now that more Whites are feeling the pain of dispossession by the Diversity Curse, worse is even better than better.

    Something big will awaken White Humanity, and riots over the exoneration of George Zimmerman, leading to Occupy violence this summer, combined with violence as the conventions in Charlotte and Tampa, will start the ringing of the fire bell in the night.

    Anti-racism is codeword for anti-White. Diversity is a vile hate crime against God’s kingdom plan for our White privilege and violates White Humanity’s ordained destiny.

      It was not part of their blood, It came to them very late, With long arrears to make good, When the Saxon began to hate.
      They were not easily moved, They were icy – willing to wait Till every count should be proved, Ere the Saxon began to hate.
      Their voices were even and low. Their eyes were level and straight. There was neither sign nor show When the Saxon began to hate.
      It was not preached to the crowd. It was not taught by the state. No man spoke it aloud When the Saxon began to hate.
      It was not suddenly bred. It will not swiftly abate. Through the chilled years ahead, When Time shall count from the date That the Saxon began to hate.
      I have begun to hate.

      • Excellent poetry! Did you write it yourself? No matter; it’s still excellent; sums the situation up perfectly.

        • I think it’s Kipling, but I may be wrong. Apart from Walter Scott, AFAIK, Kipling was the only prominent writer who used “Saxon” mythology.

          If I’m wrong- we got here Kipling’s successor. With the appropriate name- Harold (remember 1066.).

        • MikeofAges

           Rudyard Kipling. Early Nobel Laureate. Treated as an unworthy by contemporary liberals on both sides of the “pond”. Not like some of their literary lions. LOL

    George Zimmerman claims that Trayvon Martin broke his nose. If that is true, an x ray photograph should reveal that even if his nose has healed. 

    • And just what would that prove John? Zimmerman is not a medical doctor. Would you be suprised to learn that Zimmerman could have been mistaken regarding the extent of that specific injury. Does the fact that the nose may not have been broken negate the fact he was attacked and suffered damage to his nose?

  • Better the truth later than not at all. Zimmerman said Martin banged his head against the concrete; the police report noted blood on the side and back of his head, and grass stains on the back of his shirt. A witness reported seeing Zimmerman down on the ground with Martin on top of him, beating him and/or banging his head against the pavement. Yet, all that seems to have been of no account to the race baiters and their cheerleaders in the mainstream media.

    Let’s see if this has any “dampening effect” on all the marchin’ and speechifyin’. But don’t bet the rent on it.

  • In other words, Zimmerman has been telling the truth all along! Imagine that…..

  • redshirts

    Codes of Joy, Codes of Hate.
    Show up early, don’t be late.

  • All those stupid sows saying zimmerman was not injured enough, wouldnt be able to read the cop cars plate # and those are high contrast block numbers larger than most peoples noses.

    Oh, what does a little truth matter when the lie is so much more beneficial – and FUN???
