There is exclusive video of Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman on the night he shot the Florida teenager, speaking to police. While there is no audio, the video is key evidence, particularly to a public without access to police records other than what has been revealed, because Zimmerman appears healthy and unscathed, when a police report surfacing (and his attorney) claimed Martin had injured Zimmerman’s nose and skull.
In the video I noticed that there were policemen at the scene, and they (policemen) saw his face and nothing was wrong with him. I hope this video would nail him.

Vieira has now come back by laying down his belief that United get preferential treatment from officials, in the wake of Michael Oliver's
refusal to give Fulham a last-minute penalty at Old Trafford on Monday evening that could have denied the Red Devils two crucial points.
Vieira feels that the most successful teams in Europe all enjoy the same sort of advantage and he has urged City to make sure they reach such a lofty standing."When United play at home they get some advantage that other teams don't get," Vieira said

According to CBS News,the investigation into the killing of Trayvon Martin is essentially starting from scratch, with the new special prosecutor and a team of investigators quietly re-interviewing witnesses and examining evidence related to the unarmed teen's shooting death.
The 17-year-old Martin has been dead for a month, and George Zimmerman, his admitted killer, remains free after telling authorities he was forced to shoot Martin in self-defense.
I hope and Pray that George Zimmerman is brought to book this time around.

A tiny puppy named Beyonce, not much bigger than a business card, has defied odds by surviving. At a day old, Beyonce could fit in a tablespoon. Now, at a little more than 2 weeks old, weighs 4 ounces and is no bigger than an iPhone - setting the new world record for the Smallest puppy, according to World Records Academy.At one day old, Beyonce was so small she could fit into a spoon. Due to her small size, Beyonce needed to be bottle fed every hour because her mouth was too small to be able to nurse properly. Now at almost two weeks old Beyonce is almost as big as an iphone.
According to Beth DeCaprio, the executive director of the Grace Foundation -- the El Dorado Hills organization that is currently caring for Beyoncé -- the dog has managed to cheat death on four different occasions.
She was almost killed in utero when her pregnant mother -- a stray -- was found by animal control and was scheduled to have her puppies aborted.
Luckily for little Beyoncé, her mother's pregnancy was too far along. Her mother was then scheduled to be euthanized, but the Grace Foundation stepped in and agreed to take her in.
Five days later, on March 8th, Casey delivered her puppies, with Beth Decaprio, Executive Director of The Grace Foundation and Casey's foster mom, and Dr. Michael Russell, Grace Foundation veterinarian, standing by.
When Beyoncé was born -- the last of five siblings -- she wasn't breathing and did not have a heartbeat. She had to be given CPR and was eventually resuscitated.
The puppy barely survived being born on March 8, needing mouth-to-mouth and chest compressions from veterinarian Dr. Michael Russell in the first minutes of her life.
Now a little bigger and a little stronger, Beyoncé -- who was named after the song 'Survivor' -- is winning the fight to survive.
