Zimmerman has claimed that Martin attacked him, breaking and bloodying his nose and repeatedly slamming his head into the floor.

The video however shows Zimmerman in handcuffs apparently without any of the injuries he claimed to have suffered.

Benjamin Crump, Martin’s parents’ lawyer, said: “This certainly doesn’t look like a man who told police only an hour or so earlier he suffered a broken nose and had his head repeatedly smashed into the sidewalk.

“It only bolsters our claim that George Zimmerman was not beaten to the point that he feared for his life, as he had indicated.

“This armed vigilante needs to be arrested immediately for the murder of Trayvon Martin.”

Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self defence after the teenager, who he was following, attacked him.

Zimmerman has not been arrested due to Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law, which means that a person who feels threatened may use deadly force to protect themselves.

America’s right wing media was this week accused of trying to undermine Trayvon’s character after sensitive information relating to his school records was leaked.

Speaking on Piers Morgan’s CNN show, Tracy Martin, Trayon’s father, said his Zimmerman might not be a racist but “did racially profile Trayvon Martin”.
