    if it turns out to be true that Martin's face and body had no bruises, cuts or other indications that he was physically harmed in any way other than by the actual shooting.  Same goes for Zimmerman's knuckles, I would think.  Those are things the jury can take into consideration.

      If there were no bruises on Travon Martin's face or body, that has no bearing. Zimmerman was told to stay in his car. He didn't. He pursued and, presumably, harassed Martin. He didn't necessarily punch Martin. He shot him. And killed him. That's not circumstantial, for christ sake.
