Forget this case and think of this hypothetical- one person has black eyes, bashed back of head, and other obvious, real injuries. Nothing on hands or knuckles to indicate he has hit anyone. The other has no injuries of any sort- none, other than bruised knuckles. If your life was at stake, who would you guess initiated the confrontation?
This is missing my point. "What would I guess" is very different from "what will I self-righteously declare must have happened." I mean, you think people never lose fights they start?

ETA: And if you're gonna post the question correctly, you might note that a bullet hole counts as an injury.
