Juror B29 from the Zimmerman trial has come forward to speak, and has given us a wonderful example of why we try cases upon facts, evidence, and the law, instead of emotion.
“Maddy” says George Zimmerman “got away with murder,” but also that there never should have been charges filed, and that the prosecution’s case was a “publicity stunt.”
She doesn’t think charges should have been filed, but fought “till the end” to convict Zimmerman of something all the same. She doesn’t seem to grasp the difference between murder, which is a crime, and justifiable homicide, which is not.
Folks, let this be a lesson to you. If you are accused of a crime, you will face a “jury of your peers.” That does not mean you will face a jury of your actual peers, but a jury in which roughly half the participants are statistically likely to be of below average intelligence.
Be safe out there.
Update: She was framed? I’m shocked, shocked that ABC News would deceptively edit video.
