In a turn of events that thrusts the prosecutors of the Trayvon Martin case in the negative limelight, Doctor Shiping Bao has released a statement claiming that prosecuting team intentionally ignored medical evidence which later resulted in Zimmerman’s freedom.
Dr. Shiping Bao is the medical examiner that performed Martin’s autopsy and claims that his testimonial was purposefully ignored throughout the trail because the state attorney and Sanford Police Department were all biased against Martin. According to autopsy records, Dr. Bao claims that with the trajectory of the bullets there is no feasible way that Martin could have been on top of Zimmerman, the key point that led to Zimmerman's verdict. Dr. Bao is currently suing for $100 million dollars in a wrongful termination case. He claims that he was fired due to his opinions regarding the case.
This comes as only one of the many criticisms regarding the infamous case, according to the NY Mag. It’s no surprise that this case is one of the most important in recent history as it calls into question concepts of racial inequality and gun control in the modern age.
