"Yes, it is a fact that he was not charged, and it is a fact that police found no evidence to contradict Zimmerman's account."

But they did find evidence to support Zimmerman's account of the incident. Namely his broken nose and cuts and bruises on his head.

Those facts don’t support, or contradict, Zimmerman’s account that Martin attacked him. The fact that Zimmerman had injuries tells us fhat there was a physical altercation; it tells us nothing about who started the fight.

I don't want to belabor this point, but there is nothing except Zimmerman's word about how the fight started. The police have found nothing that contradicts his account, but that is not the same thing as supporting it.

I do think that much of the speculation on how the confrontation started is difficult to square with the known facts.
