    Zimmerman is in Court today on Bond Hearing.  Thinkprogress Reported:

"While interviewing Zimmerman’s current wife, the state proscecutor read from an affidavit by the ex-girlfriend. She alleged in the sworn statement that he “pushed her,” then slapped her with an open hand to the mouth and “asked her how it felt.” She said he “picked me up and threw me on the bed” and then “grabbed me again.” Zimmerman’s wife responded that her husband was simply trying to “protect himself from being attacked by her.”

     Re-read that last sentence: Zimmerman’s wife responded that her husband was simply trying to “protect himself from being attacked by her.” Does that sound a wee bit familiar?

Talkingpointsmemo Reports:
     George Zimmerman took the witness stand at his own bond hearing this morning in a Florida courtroom and said he was sorry to the parents of Trayvon Martin.

“I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son,” Zimmerman said. “I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. And I did not know that he was armed or not.”
- Zimmerman on why he had to kill Trayvon Martin in order to determine if Trayvon was armed
    Was that a blatant LIE in that BS apology?  Zimmerman said, "I thought he was a little bit younger than I am."

     Yet on the 911 call Zimmerman knew Trayvon was no where near Z's age

911 dispatcher: "How old would you say he is?"

Zimmerman: "He’s got something on his shirt. About like his late teens."

911 dispatcher: "Late teens?"

Zimmerman: "Uh, huh."

    Zimmerman is 28 years old and he will be 29 years old in October.

Hmmm .... "I thought he was a little be younger than I am."

     "A little younger" .... hmm ... like 2years younger or maybe 3or 4 years younger?

     Pretty hard for me to believe that Zimmerman - who accurately told 911 Dispatch that Trayvon was in his "late teens" minutes before he killed him - would suddenly 'claim to think' a boy in their "late teens" would be "little bit younger" than a he, a 28 year old man?

     Reason I point out and underscore the age - is because in my opinion it proves that Zimmerman is now concocting a "state of mind" for that night.

     You see, "state of mind" will be a significant issue at trial.  So if Z can now concoct a story that he thought 'This MAN, a little big younger than I am scared me and I didn't know if he had a weapon  ... blah ... blah ... blah ... concocting "State of Mind"

     The following is simply my opinion --- opinion only:
     I think Mark OMara is a good con-man himself.  I think his crocodile tears when he took this case, along with the fact that he told the Press Zimmerman wanted to meet with Trayvon's family ALONE - with no one in the room, was a PR Stunt.

     Never-mind that, the point of this Diary is to underscore two things:

1) Zimmerman has used the Self-Defense claim in the past.

Zimmerman’s wife responded that her husband was simply trying to “protect himself from being attacked by her.
2) Zimmerman suddenly claims he "thought he was a little bit younger"

9:25 AM PT:    

     Allegedly and supposedly, 3-minutes after Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, an anonymous person, who knew George & George's wife, took a picture of the back of Zimmerman's head which shows a little bit of blood tricking down his head but no picture of Zimmerman's nose

   What I find most "telling" is: Zimmerman just finished killing an unarmed teenager and took the time to have his picture taken with a little bit of blood trickling down his head ... hmmmm ... yet failed to have a picture taken of any alleged broken nose.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
