A recent revelation in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case could, and should spark a new wave of outrage.
Dr. Shiping Bao, the Volusia County medical examiner who was in charge of handling slain-teenager Trayvon Martin's body in February 2012, has come out and claimed that the prosecution team was biased against the African-American teenager, and intentionally lost the case. According to Bao's attorney, Willie Gary, the medical examiner's office, the state attorney's office and the Sanford Police's "general attitude was that [Martin] got what he deserved. He was in essence told to zip his lips. 'Shut up. Don't say those things.'" Dr. Bao is speaking out in the wake of having been fired from the m.e.'s office, and is planning a $100 million lawsuit against the State of Florida.
According to the former assistant coroner, the results of Martin's autopsy clearly showed that, despite Zimmerman's statements regarding their altercation, there was no feasible way for Martin to have been on top of Zimmerman when the gun was fired, because the bullet entered Martin's back.
Bao claims that the prosecution never actually asked him the questions that were crucial to the success in the case, and that he changed his opinion from the time he initially examined Martin and the time he was on the stand. Bao and his attorney say they believe he was fired for questioning the way the case was handled, and possibly for not going long with the desired narrative.
Bao testified in court that the amount of marijuana that was found in Martin's system at the time of his death would have had little to no effect on his ability to reason—even though initiallyy he had stated that the drug could have possible impaired his mental state.
You may remember that on August 6, shortly after the verdict, AlterNet's Steven Rosenfeld wrote a story about how it appeared that the state intentionally threw the case against Zimmerman. Among his points: Gov. Scott handpicked the prosecutors, who seemed to ignore much of the evidence. The article also mentioned Bao's waffling on the subject of whether marijuana would have made Martin aggressive.

Guess you and your ilk were born 100 years too late, you missed out on your slice! Oh for the good old days.........
Well the medical examiner had problems with consistency in his testimony and changed his mind on several issues according to the prosecutors. It looks to me like the ME was chosen to be the fall guy as Dems always have a fall guy to blame in failure.
I guess Zimmerman can change his testimony too and claim that his head being bashed on the concrete made him delirious and like Hillary during Whitewater, he can't recollect how he shot Trayvon Martin. The verdict of innocence is public record and that isn't going to change. I can see where you might use this story as part of your race baiting initiative to keep the race baitable twits in Obonzo's camp as he crashes and burns.
Could be an interesting develpoment of the Trayvon Martin child murder...
even if he was momentarilrily under the influence of a gang of thugs on bath-salts at the 7/11
