One of the Zimmerman jurors is making the rounds in the media and she’s had some really bizarre things to say. On the one hand she’s saying there wasn’t sufficient evidence to convict Zimmerman, even though she wanted to because she thought he was guilty. How could he be guilty if there is no evidence?
“George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can’t get away from God. And at the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with,” Juror B29 told ABC, “”(But) the law couldn’t prove it.”
“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” she added.
Pat couldn’t believe she was making these comments, since as a juror you’re supposed to be going into a case without a pre-formed opinion.
“In America we’re presumed innocent until proven guilty. Well, she was, she was assuming an decided he was guilty until he was proven innocent. Fortunately she voted the right way, but that’s amazing,” Pat said.
Stu, on the other hand, felt a little bad for her since she is basically having to defend acquitting someone that was judged guilty in the court of public opinion. In order to justify it and get back to a normal life she is just trashing George Zimmerman and saying there just wasn’t enough evidence to convict him.
“You know, you feel bad to some degree for this woman in that she really ‑‑ here’s a person who is, at least appeared to the lawyers as so disconnected with society that she didn’t know anything about this trial. I mean, just to be on this jury, you have to be a pretty special person. But then to go through this as not a media personality, not someone who’s used to this, you know, sort of craziness and then have to justify to everyone you know why you did something that they see as horrific as a lynching back in the day. I mean, that is the way they described the Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin thing. So, you know, to have to defend herself after that, she just is probably trying to find a way to get back to her normal life. And, you know, she’s trashing George Zimmerman for it, which is sad,” Stu said.
