Zimmerman’s medical records, the police station surveillance video, and now the Martin autopsy report support Zimmerman’s claim of self defense and establish that Martin was the aggressor.
A leaked autopsy reportedly shows that the bullet that killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin was fired from “intermediate range,” which one forensics expert said means anywhere from one to 18 inches away.
The autopsy, conducted by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also showed that 17-year-old Martin had one small abrasion on his left ring finger below the knuckle, according to the news report. The report could back the account of George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain accused of killing Martin, who has said he fired into Martin’s chest in self-defense as the youth was straddling and pummeling him.

No jury is going to convict Zimmerman of murder based on what evidence has been “leaked” thus far. Thanks to the media feeding frenzy, there will most likely be problems when Zimmerman is acquitted.
Your federal government at work. This is so ludicrous that it would be funny (Zimmerman is also part-black) if it was not so deadly serious. Now “profiling” is a “hate crime”? This country (or at least its government) has gone completely nuts.
George Zimmerman, the volunteer neighborhood watchman from Florida charged in the killing of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, could face federal hate crime charges, WFTV reports.
Zimmerman profiled and stalked Martin before allegedly shooting and killing him Feb. 26, state prosecutors have said, so the FBI is looking into charging Zimmerman with a hate crime, the television station reports.

This story reminds me of Clint Eastwood’s Gran Torino movie.
When soldiers come home from their tours of duty, they generally don’t have a need to pull their weapons out anymore. But 84-year-old vet Fred Ricciutti held on to his, and it’s a good thing he did. He was forced to use the same gun he carried on the frontlines of the Korean War in the early 1950’s to shoot a prowler who broke into his Pittsburgh-area home on Tuesday. Sixty years later, it still does what it’s supposed to do. Too bad somebody had to find that out the hard way.

Looks like this was the season for the gift that keeps on giving ….
In the six days before Christmas, gun dealers submitted nearly half-a-million names for checks on criminal records and mental health issues, with 20% coming Dec. 23, according to news reports. That was the second-busiest gun-buying day in history, topped only by firearm purchases on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, The London Telegraph says.
Final tallies for the entire month haven’t been released, but December gun purchases will eclipse November. As of last week, 1,534,414 names had been sent to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, The New York Times reported in an editorial. About 1% of buyers are typically rejected, the paper said. – USA Today
Not sure why the increased interest in firearms, but definitely a growing segment of our economy.
