A new photo of the -- -- Martin murder case according to ABC news the photograph shows George Zimmerman head covered in blood.
-- Zimmerman and is the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer charged with the murder of seventeen year old barn.
A -- -- claims he shot unarmed Maarten in self defense so of the new photo photo bolster his claim our legal panel joins us crumble.
Defense lawyer Diana tennis is in Orlando and defense lawyers Ted Williams and Bernie Grimm are both here Sam let me go first cheer Alan Dershowitz.
Is -- and refers to it as a -- ethical violation if that photograph.
Was with held.
From the judge when the arrest warrant was signed originally to -- and do you have any problem wasn't that.
Give that -- at the mention of that photo and the description was not in the arrest affidavit.
Watched my credit that was a great ethical violation that we are encountering those every day here in Florida.
It is very the very unusual in fact probably unheard of for evidence such as that to be given to the judge there was a lot of pro defense evidence -- was looked out of that probable cause affidavit and frankly that's just the way it happens.
On a daily basis here in Florida -- and come down here and fix that.
I'd be happy to have it happen but it didn't shock me.
-- -- did Bernie is this photo -- -- -- decided to.
I think generate gone yet and that's -- should the photographs in fairness and justice be.
Included -- but as I told my feet and talk about the caffeinated supported the -- -- right right right.
As -- told declined twenty years ago at the DC -- he's trying to say join justice go watch a movie or read a book com and I was young men and good -- and did -- thing is -- is right if this is a Brady violation him and calendars which is outraged he happens.
All over the country.
Every single day shoot it and put -- there yet -- guys charged with second degree murder.
The judgment of try to maybe would make -- manslaughter and maybe would have gotten personal recognizance by -- right it happens.
-- the time.
-- is this -- -- in any way in to you is this likely really can't predict what a jury's going to do we can't predict what's gonna happen this case but I'm curious looking at here the defense -- the case you say.
This is it photograph that is going to have an impact -- -- of fun.
Doctor doesn't remember clearly a big impact you're probably defense attorney I would be licking my chops.
Haven't seen this photo because this photograph was taken about three minutes after the attacks all between -- Vaughn and -- moment.
Quite naturally summer months our defense he has self defense.
And -- quite natural -- portal could very well played a larger role because you can see.
That he was attacked it all by trade except for the London is say that I think we'll have enormous -- case is the fact that the -- -- Marin was unarmed and he was armed and goes up on him I think that that we'll have the prosecution we'll we'll.
Muhammad that want to make sure -- won't happen.
Because the fact about -- we have to deal -- from a everything we know and -- -- haven't we learned today.
-- moment was in fact the aggressive -- some of those views were not very clean in this.
But -- I gotta tell you -- for example my attorney -- today ER did a very -- brilliant job all with what he had to ward -- -- Diem that I'm giving people a lot of people in the African American community are.
Very displeased tonight with the with the level of the -- to.
In in most states and tell if this is true and sort of the bond is I'm -- -- guilt or innocence right -- but simply as.
As a assurance of someone -- -- to court and it can't be excessive of course have been violates the constitution.
Is that a lot yet in Flint fort -- -- law.
But well -- it's even.
Stronger that the state of Florida has a constitution that frankly -- stronger than the constitution of the United States.
You're absolutely right you're presumed innocent and there is a presumption that you will be released on a reasonable bond which by definition means our -- you can make.
This is a very standard.
-- -- -- -- I think it's unfortunate that that people.
Advising the Martins gave them very very false hopes.
That this was a situation where he would be -- with -- we all know everybody in this community nailed.
The state attorney's office -- or they wouldn't have gone and with just -- bear probable cause affidavit that would never meet the standard in the state of Florida so.
We all know it's unfortunate that they didn't they would not have been so disappointed I think.
I think the most painful thing about this case is that nobody's putting the lid on it to -- that there's a lot of gasoline throws -- on a plane.
And it Reno with the process has unfolded.
And site there's a whole there's a lot of a lot of bad information out there and I'll tell a lot of emotion and.
It generates a lot of hate.
On both sides -- -- Martin's mother says weeks ago also won his apology Zimmerman gets up there apologizes.
Same place and -- He's grandstanding.
I know but then it's the prodigal light let me say yeah I -- -- imagine he would -- even riveting apologized in -- -- -- -- positive but you know I'm just.
Don't back your point I mean.
Did the fuel just keeps getting port on the fire's not getting better and worse I just -- battering the wire today that.
-- Martin's got burn patterns on his church so that means -- guns probably six to ten inches away I mean I still think he was executed but will find out I shouldn't.
-- judge -- got to tell you -- sharks.
Just seize a moment take the stand today and to apologize and I thought.
Back to government should've had a right to just walk all the way through -- moment in -- -- attractive to jurors are allowed him to get on this rim and -- -- Testimony that was actually sent it to dog be a public relations campaign to to jury pool in this case.
So if people -- this is that a case would have forcing people to have taken sides read from get go without you know without having an opportunity I've developed to get the I was.
I'm curious why why was he able -- take the -- and -- why was that part of the bail process.
All the while it what client -- defendant has the right pick -- candidate -- appointed time the risk that was taken.
Was that if you do that at a trial situation.
You don't get to just answer three questions and then told us that the state attorney Hank.
You've crossed the bounds of the -- you would have to be wide open about pointed questioning.
The bond hearing is a different -- all but -- the defense definitely took a chance that that judge may not have -- those cross examination questions and they also got lucky that the state didn't seem to see that coming and they didn't do a particularly good job of delving into the and I didn't know it was armed or not armed.
He said he I thought it was only a little bit younger than I was which didn't really match the first statement so.
They didn't really do a great job of cross examination but the defense got lucky it could've gone way beyond that.
Ted learning data thank you another comeback is going to be I'm -- gonna -- quite some time thank you odd coming up.
Think why is veteran GOP senator.
