    bashed. If you look at the picture and look at the actual wound they are superficial which could of been initially caused when his head hit the pavement. He did not have signs of a fracture, concussion or signs of hematoma. If in fact he was slammed that many times his blood pattern on his head would be all over as well on the pavement. I don't even think he required stitches. My son hit his head when he was toddler and it split wide open, it was less than one inch but it bled like crazy. Anyways, just my opinion.

      Is the law the same about defending yourself if the aggressor has a deadly weapon? Zimmerman could of used a knife or a crowbar as well. I'm sure at one point Trayvon knew Z had a gun and fought hard for his life.

      •  Kidgeon - if Zimmerman brandished his weapon (0+ / 0-)

        in a threatening manner, or if anyone comes after you with a knife or a crowbar, you can respond by using deadly force in self defense.
