    According to the police reports that were linked in a diary last night Trayvon's body was found between townhouses.  If this is true how the heck did Trayvon knock Zimmerman's head against cement?  I suppose there might have been a sidewalk?  There was also another contradiction that I caught but have forgotten, I'll have to go back and read the reports again.  One of the posts here reminded me about it, but I've already forgotten.  :(

    •  i have a contradiction (4+ / 0-)

      zimmerman said he was punched in the nose when he was walking back towards his truck.

      was he walking backwards???? how do you get hit in the nose with your back towards someone?

      •  ahhh....that wasn't one I caught... (0+ / 0-)

        at least some of us are catching stuff.  I think it might have been about the gun.  I'm going to go check it out.  I remember the comment with the link in it was near the top of the thread.  Boy this case is a MESS!!

      •  He claims that Trayvon came up to him (0+ / 0-)

        Aaa he was returning to his vehicle. That Trayvon asked him if he had a problem. zim Turned replied er no, and then Trayvon punched him in the nose saying something to the effect: "well you do now"  Zimmerman fell, then started to pound azimmerman's head on the ground.

        This is how a lot of people do get killed in real fights.

        There's no contradiction simply an unverifiable assertion by Zimmerman. The injuries are consistent with the story. The main problem for Zimmerman  is that Zimmerman did challenge the kid. This makes it possible to argue he was stalking a person. Dies that actually change his liability before the law?

    •  How did the dispatch time and arrival time (6+ / 0-)

      be the same on the police report?    There are a lot of questions on that diary from professionals or former professional cops, lawyers, investigators and dispatchers. You are talking to a professional dispatcher who was certified with the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement.  I did that for a living.
      Impossible.   All of my real hard facts are on Meteor Blades diary and they are there.  So are my questions.
      That police report is BS

      •  I saw that too, Dispatch 19:17, arrive 19:17 (0+ / 0-)

        Here's why:

        That officer report is from an officer who was responding already to SHOTS FIRED calls from neighbors, and was near the scene when dispatched to the actual site where Treyvon was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

        I found this out after reading a Florida local paper story last night.

        I was also confused when I first saw the online version of the somewhat redacted police reports from on-scene officers, but after I read that local paper story it made sense to me.

        •  Angie,,,it still does not make sense (0+ / 0-)

          There is constant transmission going on and it never shows the initial dispatch and arrival time.  It HAS to show it,  For every officer.  I read the Orlando and local papers as well,  time is everything and there should be a time where the ambulance arrived and for whom was it called,  the pictures of the scene is missing,   Even if an officer was in the area a minute away.. The time had better be a minute apart.  The initial dispatch should be from the time Zimmerman called to the arrival of the officer.  If that is the case.  the cop was there when the victim was shot.  The incident began not with the shooting but the report of a suspicious suspect...the shooting is NOT a separate report.. It is all the same and arrival of officers is different times.  Not explained

      (Trayvon's father) walking the path that Trayvon took home that night.  The backs of two different streets of townhouses face one another and between the "yards" runs a sidewalk.
