Zimmerman's friend or alleged 'paid spokesperson' Joe Oliver, stated that Zimmerman claimed to have a broken nose, engaged in a 'struggle' on the ground with Martin and scratches to his face, thus causing Zimmerman to use Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' defense
As the only living witness, Zimmerman's versions of events the night of February 26th has been in question since the Martin case was highlighted by national media. The Sanford Police Department brought Zimmerman 'self-defense' claim hook, line and sinker. So much that Zimmerman, after fatally wounding a unarmed teenager still has rights to carry a conceal weapon and walk in the public as a free man today.
Has Stanford Police Department allowed other suspects fatal gun shooting cases be immediately released after a round of light questioning, fully accepting a suspect story as heartily true. That's unknown to ROJS News at this time but, could with Zimmerman's father who served previously served as a Judge, have anything to do with George Zimmerman's 'Quid pro quo' treatment by the Sanford P.D.?
What is Quid pro quo? From Wikipedia:
"Quid pro quo ("what for what" in Latin) most often means a more-or-less equal exchange or substitution of goods or services. English speakers often use the term to mean "a favour for a favour" and the phrases with almost identical meaning include: "give and take", "tit for tat", "this for that", and "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours".
From online media resource Rolling Out.com on March 27th:
Robert Zimmerman, a former Orange County magistrate judge, recently wrote a letter to defending his son, who’s been dragged through the mud for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last month. In the letter, the senior Zimmerman asks people not to jump to conclusions and insists that his son didn’t follow the young boy home as he walked through their gated community.
“He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event became public, and I hope that will be soon, everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media,” wrote Robert Zimmerman.Then there's this, video evidence of the night of February 26th, after Zimmerman was temporary arrested for shooting and fatally wounding Trayvon Martin. Joe alleged 'paid spokesperson' Oliver stated on numerous interviews, prior too his effective cross-examination by MSNBC's Lawrence O' Donnell, Jonathan Capehart and Charles Blow of the New York Times, Zimmerman was injured by Martin and thus fearing for his life.
On MSNBC's Ed Schultz show March 28th, a ABC News video obtained by the Freedom of Information Act, showed Zimmerman entering Sanford's Police Department garage the night of the event with little to no visible injuries.
Zimmerman, his alleged 'spokesperson' Joe Oliver or former Judge and father Robert Zimmerman, have yet to issue a statement about the video from Sanford's Police Department.
