Trayvon Martin's Shooting Was 'Avoidable' & That's All We Need to Know (VIDEO)

george zimmermanAccording to a recently released police report dated March 13, Travyon Martin's shooting death was "avoidable" by George Zimmerman.

According to the same report, Martin was shot in the heart at close range by a single bullet.

Well, that settles that ... right?

Or not. Because according to still more recently released evidence, George Zimmerman really did have "bleeding tenderness to his nose, and a small laceration to the back of his head." Also, trace amounts of THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) were found in Trayvon Martin's system. So there!

Enough already. For the love of god, we get it. Trayvon Martin wasn't a choir boy. And maybe George Zimmerman is more of a mental case than a monster (turns out Zimmerman was on the prescription drug Temazepam, a hypnotic agent used to treat severe insomnia).

That STILL doesn't mean Martin deserved to die. Or that we need to take pity on Zimmerman. So can we stop condemning the kid already?

This isn't a "good guy" competition. May the best man win! No. This is a murder trial. And out of all the words in that recently released report, these are the only ones that really matter:

"The encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman, if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement, or conversely, if he had identified himself to Martin as a concerned citizen and initiated dialog in an effort to dispel each party's concern. There is no indication that Trayvon Martin was involved in any criminal activity at the time of the encounter."

Case closed.

Does any of the newly released evidence change your opinion of this case?
