Does New Sanford PD Video Show Zimmerman With Broken Nose?
The Sanford police department has released an extended video of George Zimmerman on the night of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. It appears as though his nose may have been bandaged both immediately upon Zimmerman exiting the police cruiser and again at 4:30 in when Zimmerman walks under the camera in an entirely new segment. I've also included screencaps from 4:20 and 4:53 in that may not support the idea that there is tape there. I'm not trying to jump to conclusions, or withold anything. That's why I am not saying I'm 100% certain.
Finally, there is also a screencap of an officer inspecting the back of Zimmerman's head. Along with that, if the video does show a nose injury, that would jibe completely with what is claimed about his encounter with Trayvon Martin that night before Martin was killed.
While I cannot be 100% certain, it appears to me as though you can see a bandage on Zimmerman's nose. It could be glare from a light. But in watching the sequence repeatedly, it at least does not appear to be that. I've also made several screencaps below the video. You can judge for yourself. It may take more analysis to be 100% certain either way. It's also being reported that Trayvon Martin's email account was hacked.
Below are the screencaps.
These last two do not appear to support what the images above do, which I why I am saying it's inconclusive. The video is not of high quality and even close in shots are often out of focus, unfortunately.
