The evidence wasn't there to convict Zimmerman

but it wasn't there to exonerate him in terms of us knowing what really happened that night either. If Zimmerman approached Martin aggressively, Martin's the one who may have been justified in getting the jump on him. Only Zimmerman knows who made himself into a threat first. Then, it comes down to whether Zimmerman needed to confront him at all. I'm sure Zimmerman thought he did, but we don't know that his judgement was all that great given the number of 911 calls he was prone to.
