All of that however is irrelevant:
The crime committed by Martin is when he returned to Zimmerman and started a fight with him. To his credit, I guess, was that he was winning. And that's why he got shot, because Zimmerman though his life was in danger.
That is the crux.
From what I saw of his injuries, I wouldn't buy into that, unless it could be proven that he's such a milktoast, that he reasonably thought a couple of scratches and a bloody nose equals 'life threatening.'
Edit: Just been reminded of the PA's testimony that Zimmerman had an MMA training regime 3 times a week. Again, 'life in danger'? A tough sell.
