The mainstream media reports on the Zimmermna case, with CBS news filing this report on the statements made by Zimmerman’s attorney. Of course, they had to insert the portions that support the narrative, when they had this to say:
Martin’s autopsy showed he was shot through the heart. Gunpowder
burns around his chest wound, called “stippling,” suggest Zimmerman shot
him no more than 18 inches away. The gun shot’s trajectory was
Diagrams also note Martin was hurt in the fight: blood on his head, a bruise around his eye, scarring on both hands. (emphasis added)
This is where the lies are to be found. Don’t take my word for it: read the autopsy yourself. On page seven, you will find the diagram that they are referring to.
Looking at the hands, there is one hand marked ‘scar’ and one marked ‘abr’. A scar is old injury, and would not have happened during the fight with Zimmerman. ‘Abr’ means abrasion, as evidenced by the fact that it is mentioned in the list of injuries on page three. The scar is irrelevant to the investigation, as is the one shown by the diagram on Martin’s right shoulder.
The note near the eye does not say ‘bruise’ for two reasons: there is no mention of it in the list of injuries, and ‘bruise’ is not the proper medical term and would not be used on a medical report.
The marks on the head part of the diagram are descriptors. The one on the head says “black short,” which is a description of the decedent’s hair, it most certainly does not say anything about “blood,” and the one which is on the eye says “Brown,” not “bruise.” Both of these descriptors can be found on page two.
So what we have here is the mainstream media trying to shape the narrative, either because they are seeing what they want to see, or because they are deliberately trying to mislead the public. In either case, they cannot be trusted.

Evidence of injury:
Penetrating gunshot wound of the chest
1/4 by 1/8 inch abrasion on the left fourth finger.
He had no other injuries. I don't know where the hell CBS got their intel, but it's false.
Also, that's why I don't like 9mm. Shot at that close range and no exit wound? .45 acp or .357 SIG for me.

.357 Sig is a 9mm bullet on a .40S&W case.
The bullet from a .357Sig is a 115 grain projectile leaving the barrel at 1,350 feet per second, giving a muzzle energy of 506 foot pounds.
CorBon 9mm +P ammo is a 115 grain projectile leaving the barrel at 1,350 fps and 506 ft/lbs of energy.
Same bullet, same velocity, same energy. What is the difference?
Also, I would point out to you that any energy that the bullet leaves the body with is not only wasted, but potentially a problem if that bullet happens to hit someone that you didn't intend on shooting. (See rule #4)

A .357 Sig 124 gr. FMJ from PMC actually has 512 ft. lbs. energy. What's really impressive is that after 100 yds. it still has a velocity of 1,040 fps, behind only the 9mm Luger and the .44 Remington mag. It also has the least drop at 100 yds. than any other round other than the 9mm Luger.
CorBon? 115 gr. JHP .357 Sig has 575 ft. lbs. energy and a muzzle velocity of 1500 fps.
Also, according to the CorBon website, their 9mm Luger +P JHP, 115 gr. has a muzzle energy of 466 ft. lbs.
That's why I prefer the .357 Sig.

I didn't know there were any .357 loads that were that hot. My M&P40 currently has a 9mm barrel in it, because I like the 18 round capacity. I may have to get a .357 barrel for it, because I like it better than my Sig 229.
