This color photo of Zimmerman as shown above, allegedly taken by the SPD police officer on the night of February 26 in which Trayvon Martin was shot to death, was recently released by Zimmerman’s defense team on December 3, 2012. Supporters of Zimmerman’s defense immediately claimed that the photo proved Trayvon savagely beat Zimmerman into a bloody pulp that night.
But, on many levels, this photograph raised more questions and casted even more doubts about the photo and Zimmerman’s claim than helping proved his case of self-defense.
Here are the points for consideration:
1. The zipper magic.
The above photo was said to be taken while Zimmerman was hand-cuffed and sitting in the police car. Notice the zipper of his jacket was zipped all the way up to the collar. But, somehow when he exited the police car at the SPD station while still in hand-cuff, his jacket zippper was now completely unzipped and his jacket wide open. How did that happen?
See the SPD surveillance video still shot below:
2. Miracle healing of swollen nose.
Somehow Zimmerman’s swollen nose, as seen in the above photo, was miraculously resolved when another photo of his face was taken about four hours later at the SPD. How did that happen? To those who stood-by Zimmerman’s position, please tell me how the severely swollen nose got suddenly deflated to normal condition as seen in the line-up photos the SPD took at the station?

3. No tranfer of Zimmerman’s nose blood on Trayvon’s hands.
Zimmerman claimed that Trayvon sucker-punched him to the ground and then savagely beat him on the face repeatedly for more than a dozen times. He then claimed that Trayvon grabbed his head and repeatedly slammed it into the concrete to the point he felt like his head was going to explode. But then somehow for some unknown reason, Trayvon gave that up also and chose to kill him by suffocation instead. Apparently, Trayvon wasn’t very good in trying to kill a person with brute force. The claim was that Trayvon put his hands on Zimmerman’s nose and mouth in an attempt to suffocate him to death while Zimmerman was just laying there screaming for help throughout all these ordeals.
Now, to those who support Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense, mind explaining to me how Trayvon managed to get NO BLOOD or DNA transfer on his hands from smothering Zimmerman’s supposedly bloody nose and mouth?
