Did you hear that loud crash over the weekend? It wasn’t an earthquake or tornado. It was the defense of George Zimmerman falling apart.
For a whole week, friends and family of Zimmerman have been trying to paint him as a nice guy, who was just doing his civic duty – and who, in fact, was the victim in this case: attacked and bloodied and nose broken by 17-year old Travon Martin.
But now we know that none of it is true.
Zimmerman has a record of assaulting a police officer and beating up his girl friend.
Zimmerman was fired from a security job outside a night club because he often flipped out and was too rough on patrons.
A videotape shows no cuts, no blood, and no broken nose on Zimmerman when he arrived at the police station, a half-hour after killing Trayvon.
And now two different voice experts say there’s no way that the voice heard crying for help on the 911 call could be Zimmerman’s. It must be Trayvon’s.
The only question remaining is: When will authorities do their job? When will George Zimmerman be charged with murder?
That’s my parting shot for today.
