BLOODY NOSE PHOTO OF GEORGE ZIMMERMAN RELEASED: The defense attorney for George Zimmerman, the Florida man charged with second-degree murder for the February killing of Trayvon Martin, posted a color photo online Monday (December 3rd) showing Zimmerman with a bloody, swollen nose, that was taken on the night he killed the 17-year-old. Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, told Reuters of the photo, "It's not a game changer," but he said it's significant because it shows the injuries his client suffered in the confrontation with Martin. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense. But attorney Ben Crump, who represents Martin's family, said the photo doesn't add anything new to the case. Crump said previously released evidence indicated Zimmerman was hit in the nose during the fight with Martin, stating, "Trayvon Martin was defending himself. He had every right to stand his ground to defend himself." O'Mara said prosecutors had given him a grainy black-and-white photocopy of the image in May, and that he'd finally received the digital color image after repeated demands by his office. Zimmerman's murder trial is set to begin next June.
