Zimmerman Prosecutor "Accidentally" Releases Damaging Evidence

Damaging to George Zimmerman, that is.

From The Smoking Gun:

In an embarrassing screw-up, Florida prosecutors today accidentally distributed a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin as well as copies of George Zimmerman’s college records, material that Florida law considers confidential and exempt from disclosure.

Coincidentally (and IMO), neither of these items helps Zimmerman, but rather harms his case. The photocopy of Martin's body serves only to inflame the public that had, over the last few weeks, simmered down about the case, and the school records reveal Zimmerman was not a very good student, possibly tainting the jury pool against him.

How the school records are even relevant in this case is beyond me. But the image is very revealing:

It reveals to me that the Seminole County Crime Scene Investigators haven't updated their camera equipment since the 1930's.
