On Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America published a photo of injuries allegedly sustained by George Zimmerman the night he shot Trayvon Martin:

A new photograph obtained exclusively by ABC News showing the bloodied back of George Zimmerman’s head, which was apparently taken three minutes after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, gives possible credence to his claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as Zimmerman fought for his life…

The exclusive image shows blood trickling down the back of Zimmerman’s head from two cuts. It also shows a possible contusion forming on the crown of his head. The original police report that night notes that the back of Zimmerman’s head was wet, and that he was bleeding from the nose and head.

Some on Twitter said the photo vindicates Zimmerman and his defenders:

Others refused to believe that Zimmerman was seriously injured by Martin, despite the photo:

Still others seemed to feel that Zimmerman had no right to shoot Martin even if Martin was smashing Zimmerman’s head into the ground:

In related news, Zimmerman will be asking a judge to grant him bail today — a request that some legal experts say has a good chance of being approved.
