Flashback: Zimmerman Prosecutor Finally Releases Minor Fact:
There Was An Eyewitness Who Saw Trayvon Martin On Top of Zimmerman, Beating Him "Mixed Martial Arts Style"

Ummm...

This entire post has to be retracted: It dates from May 21st... of last year.

So, it's true. But it's not. This information was released a year ago.

Darn. This is terribly embarrassing.

Oh, I'll just throw a "FLASHBACK" into the headline; that will fix everything.

The Smoking Gun highlighted this bit of eyewitness testimony – released to the public by the Sanford police only a few days ago, but known to the prosecution when Zimmerman was charged – tendered to the police only 90 minutes after the shooting occurred, by a resident of Zimmerman’s community who heard the altercation and decided to investigate:
The man recalled seeing “a black male, wearing a dark colored ‘hoodie’ on top of a white or Hispanic male who was yelling for help.” The black male, he added, “was mounted on the white or Hispanic male and throwing punches ‘MMA (mixed martial arts) style.’”

The witness–who was in his living room and about 30 feet away from the confrontation– said he called out to the two men that he was dialing 911. “He then heard a ‘pop,’” police reported, and saw the black male “laid out on the grass.”

I remind you: This evidence was just released to the defendant a few days ago.*

* Or a year ago. Either/or.

You know, I actually did check the date, to make sure it was New News. I got as far as "May 21st." I really should have finished up reading the entire date.
