No proof, but plenty of evidence and that is what wins and loses cases. There is no proof that Trayvon started it, but evidence would suggest it is most likely. There is no proof that Zimmerman started it and no evidence to suggest that either so it would be impossible to convict him.

Secondary source with more pictures
Also, contrary to what people are trying to portray in this thread, Police did in fact take pictures of the crime scene. Those pictures are located in the second source link above.
The location of the items pictured in the photo......are right next to the sidewalk.
There are a few more pics at the link.edit on 17-5-2012 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)edit on 17-5-2012 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)edit on 17-5-2012 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)edit on 17-5-2012 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)edit on 17-5-2012 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)

In my opinion it does not. That just supports that they fought each other. Tray was punching Zim in the face, that much i agree on. Sucker punched, and ambushed. I have yet to see eyewitness proof of that. Or any proof of who contacted who first.
776.012 Use of force in defense of person.—A person is justified in using force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or herself or another against the other’s imminent use of unlawful force. However, a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:
(1) He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony; or
(2) Under those circumstances permitted pursuant to s. 776.013....
776.041 Use of force by aggressor. —The justification described in the preceding sections of this chapter is not available to a person who:
(1) Is attempting to commit, committing, or escaping after the commission of, a forcible felony; or
(2) Initially provokes the use of force against himself or herself, unless:
(a) Such force is so great that the person reasonably believes that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and that he or she has exhausted every reasonable means to escape such danger other than the use of force which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to the assailant; or
(b) In good faith, the person withdraws from physical contact with the assailant and indicates clearly to the assailant that he or she desires to withdraw and terminate the use of force, but the assailant continues or resumes the use of force .

Reading comments here, I have decided to leave this conversation, seems a lot of hatred, be it racist or just plain ignorant i cant believe some of the comments here. I think some people should take a good long hard look at themselves.
Ill say this before i leave, if anyone followed me or any of my family down any roads when i was popping to the shop I would be confronting them.
If the police said DONT go after him, and he still did then im sorry but this guy knows he has to lie or he is going down.
I dont claim to know what happened, but i think i can safely say, I know what would NOT have happened if he had listened to what the police told him.
