The investigative report was released today on the Travon Martin shooting and the involved details on George Zimmerman’s injuries which were heavily documented in the media reports.
CNN actually showed the blood drops on Zimmerman’s back of the head, and an apparent fuzzy picture of Zimmerman’s broken nose that required no medical treatment. At the scene of the murder, Zimmerman was asked several times if he wanted to go to the hospital and he refused.
References were made to some small minute amounts of THC in Trayvon Martin’s autopsy reports, that suggested he had used marijuana at some point. Attorneys for the Martin family concurred that this evidence is irrelevant and that the police declined to test Zimmerman for alcohol or drug although that would have been procedure in most murder cases.
George Zimmerman Arraigned on Second Degree Murder Charge
However no references were made to any drug tests performed on George Zimmerman the night of the murder. No blood samples, no urine samples were taken on the perpetrator, just the victim which indicates sloppy police work and an incomplete investigation by Sanford police. Police did not arrest George Zimmerman that night of the death he caused, not for any tests or for any charges to be laid at all.
The documents revealed some interesting facts in the investigation that followed:
Zimmerman at some point had blood droplets on the back of his head, from minor cuts.
Zimmerman also told the fire department medics he had taken prescription drugs which are outlined below.
Prescription Drugs Taken By George Zimmerman
1) Temazepam – is a hypnotic, psycho active drug, used for short term insomnia, anti-anxiety, anticonvulant and muscle relaxant properties. Hypnotics are addictive, can cause daytime fatigue, motor vehicle crashes, cognitive impairments and falls.

2) Librax a choldiazepoxide and clidinium bromide used for ulcers, IBS and gastritis prescribed for anxiety patients and is also addictive.Suddenly withdrawing from the drug causes anxiousness, sleeplessness and irritability.
3) Adderall another drug given to patients with ADHD- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a psychostimulant. It is a given that ADHD patients, who are known to exhibit risky behavior. Adderall is not recommended in patients who exhibit signs of mental illness, and is sometimes used as an amphetamine stimulant, for its euphoric or “feelings of getting high” effects. In this case, George Zimmerman must have been diagnosed with ADHD to be prescribed this drug and must exhibit the characteristics of that illness.
Unfortunately as usual the mainstream media twisted the evidence examples in the 182 page report and picked the most supportive to Zimmerman’s case.
The evidence does not support the theory that Zimmerman feared for his life. Most likely the influence of Zimmerman’s prescription drugs appear to have a great impact on what happened the night of the murder of Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman could have done a number of things if he was suspicious of Trayvon Martin but the most important part was that he disobeyed the police, and did not stand down he pursued Trayvon and was actually running after him.
Zimmerman could have stopped Trayvon, and talked to him like a normal person, asked or ID or asked Trayvon if he lived nearby or where he did lived. Zimmerman could have escorted Trayvon to his unit in the building to ensure there was a parent near.
It is noted that when the first police officer arrived at the scene, Trayvon’s body was face down in the ground with his hands underneath his body. The autopsy report shows he was shot from the front of the chest -at 4 to 6 inches away from his chest. Who turned the body or disturbed it and for what reason should be explained in the report but is omitted. After being apprehended and taken to the police station, Zimmerman refused to go to the hospital several times after being asked by police.
Zimmerman could have done a number of things to avoid this death but he chose to ignore all normal forms of training for neighborhood watch personnel, which leads one to believe he is not innocent but willfully put himself in a position to be a threat to the community and to a young teen black boy in Florida a state that is known to be racially divided.
