The issue of what happened between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman remains a giant question mark, and while many people have called for Zimmerman's arrest, few have conclusively stated that he must be guilty of murder. Except, that is, for people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the New Black Panther Party and now, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. And Lee goes a step further, speculating that the injuries Zimmerman sustained on the night in question could have been self-inflicted, in a video posted by Breitbart.com:
Jackson Lee specifically focuses on the issue of Zimmerman's broken nose. "The nose is one of the most sensitive parts of the body," she says. "You can knock yourself into a door...and break a nose." To Jackson Lee's credit, she admits before making the argument that she is speculating. Nothing in the record thus far suggests that Zimmerman had anything to do with his own injuries.
