Despite what’s been happening in comments at Bruce’s post on the matter (and I’ve added in a couple of things about the law, just so people will, I hope, read them before they say anything particularly stupid), I’m determined that this blog will not become about Trayvon, since there are many other important stories out there being smothered by the wall-to-wall coverage. Here’s enough for the moment.
First, Tom Maguire notes that it appears George Zimmerman weighed about 170 lbs and Trayvon Martin 150 when they confronted each other. In my first post here on the matter I noted that Zimmerman didn’t seem overweight for his height, so I was pretty sure that stories placing him at ~240 lbs were wrong. There’s more info over there that you might not have, too.
Second, PJ Tatler has still images from ABC’s video that show quite clearly that Zimmerman has gashes to the back of his head. How it was that the video now forthcoming wasn’t what originally was shown on ABC when they got their big exclusive is a matter for speculation.
Please . . . know before you blow.
More: Now Daily Caller is saying the dispatch tape shows that Zimmerman had in fact stopped following Martin.
Yet more, with John Hayward at Human Events discussing the MSM walkback.
Maguire, again, on the expertise of one of the voice recognition experts.
