"In other words -- at least from a true legal analysis -- the police had no evidence contrary to the case being one of self defense -- and the only open issue was whether Zimmerman used "excessive force" (which would be manslaughter -- not second degree murder)-- and that at the time of the initial investigation (and probably now)-- law enforcement didn't have any evidence that controverted Zimmerman suffering "great bodily harm" (the broken nose)-- nor -- did they have any evidence contrary to his assertion that he was in reasonable fear of further serious injury or death."
