    that we have not heard about. There are hints of conflicting statements by Z as well as conflicts between what he said and what was found by investigating officers.

    And to this day I can't understand how you can shoot a man on top of you, get up, and the dead person ends up on his stomach. I suppose you could try to slide out from under him but the normal retain is to push or roll him off.

    Further, affiant sayeth not.

      when you shoot a gun it has alot of power, both to the shooter and to person being shot.
      If Trayvon was on the top hitting Zimmerman and somehow during this beating Zimmerman got his gun out and shot Trayvon, he (Trayvon) would have been blasted backwards onto his back and there would have been blood spatter on Zimmerman.  Where was the blood spatter?

        Gunshot victims twitch, spasm and move in unpredictible ways.  Trayvon could have died standing on his head but proving much by that is for tee vee lawyers. Distance and bullet direction means more than where a body slumped to as the person died.

          but even so, where is the blood spatter on Zimmerman after shooting someone on top of him?  And after suffering a broken nose, and having his head bashed repeatedly on the pavement?  He looked pretty neat in the police video.  And pretty spry after suffering a fierce beating that almost left him senseless.
          The whole 'story' stinks.
