He also went on to some length about the dangers of head injuries and how they can be subtly life-threatening.
And the other ME said exactly the opposite. And again. It's the lack of typical wounds to Martin that don't jive with the eyewitness account of "MMA style punching" that so many are so keen to talk about.

He believed that the police should have sent Zimmerman to the hospital ASAP, and had Zimmerman suddenly died of some brain injury, Zimmerman's family could have sued the police and won.
My understanding is that Zimmerman declined medical attention.

What planet are you living on to suggest the evidence does not add up?

And by the way, injuries are not the measure with which one can state they are allowed to use deadly force. I don't know how many times that has to be told, but you morons have somehow latched onto this idea that Zimmerman could only use lethal force if the severity of his injuries -- literally as he received them -- reached a point of being deadly. Not only is that a borderline retarded thought process, to believe someone will weigh the justifications of responding with force vis a vis how much damage they're receiving, but it's also legally wrong. As you literally just showed, it's up to the defender to believe he is under reasonable duress. They used "reasonable" to avoid the exact kind of backward ass, idiotic thinking you are engaging in.
That's not at all what I said. You and cutlet should find some reading comprehension classes to attend. You need a lot of work.

Again, if someone swung a baseball at you and missed, what would your injuries be? Nonexistent. Are you telling me you have to sit there until the inside of your skull wraps around Slugger pine before you can respond with lethal force? I can only hope the answer to that question is self-evident.
Swinging a bat at someone is an act of force (under the legal definition); and deadly force at that. Now, just holding a bat is not an an act of force.

What's so difficult about that distinction?
