Never before seen evidence in the case surrounding the death of trade on -- down in Florida has now gone public self.
How will this affect the case here to break it all down Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior -- it was tonight.
So we see couple new pieces of evidence that it says surveillance video of trade on Martin the teenager.
Who is in a 7-Eleven buying Skittles right as a mails before this attack happened.
And now we're seeing more injuries and information about -- -- Cynthia you -- this is very interesting and very revealing we now know that -- -- Martin had Trace amounts of TH C.
Which is the active ingredient in Canada's marijuana in his system.
We also know that there's a witness statement that says that trade on Maarten.
Was on top.
Of George Zimmerman.
And punching him repeatedly.
In quote mixed martial arts style.
-- -- We also know that the gunshot wound occurred between one and eighteen inches away from the victim trade on -- By mr.
Zimmerman and finally we know that there were calls for help apparently fourteen times.
By George Zimmerman that was overheard on the 9/11 call.
By a passer by that was calling about.
The incident so.
That combined with the fact that we now know mr.
-- had a fractured nose abrasions on his forehead -- one inch laceration on the back of his head.
The two black guys.
And other bruises it paints a different picture.
In terms of self defense.
Perhaps who was the aggressor who was winning the fight at the time the fatal shot.
-- was made by and bye bye George them except I'm not a lawyer but it would seem in me but you could anyway.
Thank you it would seem to me that in the case what.
Yeah be the most crucial aspect of it will be the fact that they have those 91 calls for George Zimmerman -- told not to follow -- on Martin and he still dies and number two.
Who actually started.
The assault yet -- -- -- point then the -- theory is that he was told to stay away that he reported that he should back off.
Zimmerman is factual defense is that he says yeah he did get out of the car but he was returning to the car.
After -- -- -- the car and he was in fact retreating when in fact he was attacked.
By trade on Maarten so.
That becomes a factual issue for a jury.
But under Florida's -- -- the stand your ground law if you have a reasonable fear for your life.
Then you have the capacity to act.
And you can be vindicated both in the civil court in a criminal court and faced no liability or no culpability for wrongdoing.
These are the issues that are coming and 200 pages of documents and photos lot of the stuff we never heard before I -- And a lot of it giving credence in many respects to setting up.
Doubt reasonable doubt about these charges against her who was fighting whom and how.
And what was going on before the shot was fired aren't very interesting case we'll have a lot of -- time as a continues thanks Peter you well don't it.
