Is there an outside chance he wasnt atleast partly responsible for those? sure, its possible... but more often than not 1+1 = 2.
Another clue i find interesting, is zimmermans testimony that while following martin he lost him in a large grassy area between buildings, that makes perfect sense, no way portly little zimmerman catches that kid if he didnt want to be caught... yeah, martin lost him, and if he'd just kept going instead of getting mad and circling back, this wouldnt have happened.
He could've just went home, but he chose not to... just my opinion, but it sure rings true to me.
If you are going to bring up trayvon's history, you should also mention that zimmerman had a history of being hot headed and strikes you as a guy who likes getting into people's faces and picking fights. So you have to buy into his testimony that he tried to walk away at the very, very last minute and when confronted by trayvon innocently said close to nothing.
The account makes it hard to believe he ever stopped pursuit as he claims in his statement. Or that he was walking back to his car. And as long as we are judging based on history, I find it hard to believe zimmerman didn't shit talk or pursue with the intent not necessarily to fight but maybe to fget in trayvon's face.
