Craig Sooner, George Zimmerman's attorney, said Zimmerman is not hiding from police and he will turn himself in should he be charged with a crime. Sooner told Reuters:
"If he’s charged, he will be arrested and he will turn himself in. However it goes, he’s not hiding from the authorities. If he is asked, he will turn himself in. There’s not going to be a manhunt or anything like that."
During another interview with Tell Me Moore's Michael Martin, his attorney said "this isn't a race issue." He stated he[Ziimmerman] had black friends that will vouch for him. He stated:
"In one case, he said, Zimmerman, who is white of Hispanic descent, mentored a black woman's daughter and son. He asked the woman if Zimmerman was a racist and whether he used racial slurs, and she answered no. "She had good things to say," said Sonner adding that both that woman and another black friend of Zimmerman's won't come forward because they are afraid of backlash."
The video footage of Zimmerman getting taken into the Sanford jail showed little or no evidence of injury to Zimmerman, but the video was enhanced and showed an apparent gash or injury to his head which led some to begin to speculate that it gave life to his claim of self-defense. He claimed that he lost sight of Trayvon after pursuing him and on his way back to his car, Trayvon confronted him, asked him if he had a problem and he said "no". Then he claims Trayvon said "well you do no," punched him in the nose, and then banged his head into the concrete.
Now, Dr. Vidor Freidman of Florida College of Emergency Physicians, reviewed the footage and paid close attention to his nose and says there are no apparent evidence of a broken nose. ABC News reports:
