GZ’s injuries: Is there a Doctor in the house?
Sometimes what is absent can be as telling as what is present. We’ve had the cell phone pic of GZ’s back-of-the-head injuries for over a month,
and the discovery dump contains a thorough selection of clear photos of his head from every angle. Yet, while we’ve heard a gaggle of lawyers and pundits weigh in opining either that these injuries are serious enough to prove a self-defense claim, or that they are too superficial to support Team Z’s story of how Mr. Zimmerman was beaten, AFAIK not one qualified Medical Doctor has weighed in on the evidence. (Please do correct me if I’m wrong here, and post a link.) Now certainly, all the networks have a variety of medical experts on call, none of whom seem to have been brought in. Beyond that, I would guess any good ER doc would have an opinion about the kinds of wounds one would receive in a fistfight, and a look through the Yellow Pages in any major city ought to identify a specialist or two in Traumatic Brain Injury. What have we heard from such qualified folks? Nada, AFAIK.
Nor does any such expert show on the prosecution’s witness list. At first I thought this extremely odd, but as we have now heard that anything related to George Zimmerman’s statements to the police has been redacted, that may explain that. But why then are ‘forensic audio’ guys Tom Owen and Ed Primeau on the witness list? (Well, they rate their own post…)
