Of course he didn’t get away with murder because he didn’t murder Trayvon Martin. But this genius was upended by a pesky little thing called evidence and just couldn’t convict him. But now that the hubbub has died down a bit, this woman comes forward to re-stir the racial animosity.
The only minority on the all-female jury that voted to acquit George Zimmerman said today that Zimmerman “got away with murder” for killing Trayvon Martin and feels she owes an apology Martin’s parents.
“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” said the woman who was identified only as Juror B29 during the trial. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”
She said the jury was following Florida law and the evidence, she said, did not prove murder.
So the evidence didn’t prove murder, but he got away with murder. Thanks for clearing that up.
The court had sealed the jurors’ identities during the trial and still hasn’t lifted the order, but Juror B29 edged out of the shadows in an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts. She allowed her face to be shown, but — concerned for her safety — used only a first name of Maddy.
The nursing assistant and mother of eight children was selected as a juror five months after she had moved to Seminole County, Fla., from Chicago.
She’s so concerned for her safety she appearing on TV. OK.
