Viewers react to new Zimmerman arrest video

By Fox 4 News Staff. CREATED Mar 29, 2012

Surveillance video shows George Zimmerman arriving at the police station the night he shot and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin.

It shows the neighborhood watch volunteer getting out of a patrol car in handcuffs.

Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self defense.

His lawyer has said he believed Zimmerman's nose was broken and that he suffered a cut in the back of his head during the incident.

The video appears to show an officer looking at the back of his head.

But in the video, there doesn't appear to be any injuries, raising even more questions about Zimmerman's side of the story.
Jose Baez says:
“I don't think you can tell much from the tape.  This is an after-the-fact situation where obviously at the scene he was spoken to.  He might have been cleaned up there.  We don't know the exact extent of what occurred at the scene.” 

Marcia Clark:
“The injuries described by George Zimmerman that made it sound as though he was really, should have been on a stretcher are not apparent in this tape at all.”

The video has many of you voicing your opinions.

Jason saying:
“He doesn't look like he was hurt. Zimmerman is twice the size of Trayvon.”

Tom posting on our Facebook page:
“Trayvon was guilty of nothing but being black and in the wrong place at the wrong time, killed by an idiot who should never have been armed.”

Tim commenting:
“Suddenly everyone is a CSI expert. If it was as cut and dry as the media seems to think we'd be heading to a trial.”
