    Why is nobody talking about this? I’ve not heard it mentioned one single time since Ms. Folgate’s testimony. Why isn’t this being taken more seriously? This information as well as anything the psychologist might add must be crucial to this case!

      Why isn’t anyone mentioning what? It’s documented that GZ went to work after a short night of sleep (if his meds kicked in and he went to sleep) and was forced by his employer to get a doctor’s release (for their protection against liability). I don’t recall if the clinic gave him a release or not but from the PA’s testimony, she did not view his injuries as serious but recommended b/c of his complaints that he go to the ENT and have his nose checked out to confirm if it was broken or not. This she got from him, not her observation, that the EM personnel suggested it was broken but in their testimony, they did not confirm that either. They did not view his injuries as serious enough to force him to go to the hospital but recommended based on his complaints that he go have it x-rayed. You know? He still can have it x-rayed to see if it was fractured or broken. The X-rays may not be able to determine how old the injury was but he can still use it to state that TM did it if the x-rays cannot prove how old the fracture or healing is.

        What I find interesting is that George claims his work was asking for the case number. Is this normal kind of behaviour for an employer?

        • Lika564

          I don’t know if it’s normal for an employer to ask for a case number. Thank God I’ve never been involved in a crime (knock hard on wood). It’s possible w/all the exaggerating GZ did that they wanted to make certain he was on the receiving end of an assault as he claimed (or the assaulter, which would have been grounds for dismissal).
          It is normal for them to want you to get a doctor’s release before you return to work, get there and hurt yourself because of your injuries or illness. They’d be liable.

            exaggerating? you mean his injuries? you do realize that it only takes one hard strike to the head to cause a tbi right? that a soccer coach was killed after being hit once, that a little girl in california a few years back got in a fight with another little girl and ended up with internal injuries in her head from being hit that she died later on. but a PA without an x-ray can state that the injuries were nothing? really?

          • Lika564

            Yes, I recognize that serious injury can be caused by a blow to the head. I am talking about this case though and GZ did not think much of his own injury beyond the sympathy stage. The EM ppl left it up to him to decide. I realize having an ambulance take you to the hospital is extremely expensive but if he thought it was serious, he should have had the police take him or his wife. His PA stated it was minor. He didn’t think much of it. He didn’t at least go through the motions of it being serious. He went to the clinic to get a return to work form and tried to tell them about his adventures. He showed up to the reenactment with ridiculous butterfly bandages on his head and annoyed that they wanted him to reenact it and then changed his story again when he saw falling down at the top of the T, shooting TM and then having TM’s boy teleport 30+ feet south of the T looked unbelievable. No, it was a fight that he lost and he chose to shoot although TM disengaged.

          • Guess who

            It was a fight for his life that he was ‘losing’ and he chose to rightfully protect his life with deadly force. Get it right.

          • Lika564

            No, it was a fight that he was losing but not for his miserable life. As you know by this hour, he was found Not Guilty of Manslaughter or Murder 2. He had best not get bright ideas of going around corners and killing more ppl he doesn’t know. You’d better not think you can start hunting either. You and he will be in for a nasty surprise.

            Apparently he’s pointing guns at his estranged wife’s face, and punching her father. He’s still getting off, though :(

          • Christopher Mooney

            A fight for his life – where he received no real major injuries.

            That’s just “a fight”. Maybe everyone should just shoot their opponent, as soon as they get hit a few times

          • gbpuzzler

            He was not fighting for his life, he was fighting for control of Trayvon Martin. And Martin was doing little or no damage to him, but was in danger of getting away.
