His attorney says Zimmerman was beat badly...obviously there's no witnesses and the claim is put out by someone trying to save himself. We'll see. At this point, Zimmerman's attorney claimed there was a broken nose. Subsequently, its been studied and this may not be the case.
Vidor Friedman, the president of the Florida College of Emergency Physicians, said footage of Zimmerman's face didn't appear to show a broken nose, ABC News reported.
"All of the ridges in his nose are clearly defined," he said. "You would expect significant swelling in the hour or two after a break. There appears to be none. It doesn't look like his nose was broken or badly broken."
In this case, there easily could be a different outcome between moral guilt and guilt under Florida laws as they exist.
