Zimmerman juror: Let’s face it, he got away with murder

posted at 6:01 pm on July 25, 2013 by Allahpundit

Remember when juror B37 told Anderson Cooper that initially there were three votes for acquittal, two for manslaughter, and one for second-degree murder? Meet the juror who voted for murder.

She wouldn’t/couldn’t convict ultimately but she seems to think the outcome was a moral travesty, yet she also thinks that the trial was a “publicity stunt” by the prosecution and never should have happened. If there’s one thing a raw, divided America needs now to heal after the verdict, it’s … the opposite of this, basically:

“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.”…

“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,” Maddy said. “[But] the law couldn’t prove it.”…

“That’s where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it,” Maddy said. “But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can’t say he’s guilty.”…

She said she believes she owes Trayvon Martin’s parents an apology because she feels “like I let them down.”

“It’s hard for me to sleep, it’s hard for me to eat because I feel I was forcefully included in Trayvon Martin’s death. And as I carry him on my back, I’m hurting as much Trayvon’s Martin’s mother because there’s no way that any mother should feel that pain,” she said.

“In our hearts we felt he was guilty”? Go back and watch B37′s interview, or the local news station’s interview with the alternate juror. They didn’t feel he was guilty. Then again, four of the jurors issued a statement after B37 spoke up to say that she didn’t speak for them, so maybe the “we” here is a reference to those four. I’m curious to hear from them now. How many of the six acquitted him with a clear conscience, a la B37, and how many were convulsed with misgivings like “Maddy”?

Now, explain something to me. If she thought he “got away with murder” but that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove intent, … why didn’t she stand firm on manslaughter? It seems clear to me, even though she’s not quoted by ABC as saying this explicitly, that she thinks this wasn’t legit self-defense. If that’s how she feels, yet she also feels that the prosecution didn’t meet its burden of intent for Murder Two, then Florida’s catch-all homicide category of manslaughter is the obvious fit. She seems to be trying to argue that Zimmerman’s morally culpable even if he’s not legally culpable, but that’s a hard argument to make if you just let a guy go free on the theory that he was protecting himself from death (or great bodily harm) by shooting. If it’s not self-defense, it’s manslaughter. If it’s self-defense, he didn’t “get away with murder” as a moral matter. Which is it?

She’s confused, psychologically and logically, and should have never been a juror.

However, she did say that they could never prove guilt, bef. liblikeaslave comes in here in lies his head off, the second pig of HA.

ABC, you azzholes, you went with the “white Hispanic”, per the NY Slimes.

If he was guilty, why didn’t she hold out and hang the jury? I bet she thinks, on the other hand, OJ didn’t kill two people.

Liam on July 25, 2013 at 6:06 PM

All six of the jurors were women and Maddy, 36, who is Puerto Rican, was the only minority to deliberate in the racially charged case. Zimmerman, 29, was a white Hispanic and Martin, 17, was black.

And yet there they are, in the article linked above, still trotting out the “white Hispanic”.

What a bunch of degenerates.

Really? This woman sounds like a complete moron – why is she not unable to understand that not all killings are intentional, and that an intentional killing is treated differently under the law than an accidental killing or killing in self defense, as Zimmerman did?

Low-information-juror

…the law says someone didn’t commit a crime, so I HAD to find him not guilty.

WRONG, you could have found him guilty, and prolonged it with a hung jury and he would have been found innocent eventually.

It’s funny that even when you put freakin’ facts in front of an ignorant human being, they STILL deny it and claim they know better or their god knows better.

Idiot. You concluded the only verdict possible because we have a CIVIL RIGHT to defend ourselves. Your idiotic opinions are irrelevant in a nation of laws. If you don’t like this system, move to Cuba.

Zimmerman, 29, was a white Hispanic and Martin, 17, was black.

We don’t know Martin’s ancestry. he may very well be white black black … or black brown white … or white black yellow.

Until we have the facts the media should quote his ethnicity as “unknown”.

darwin on July 25, 2013 at 6:13 PM

This is called extricating your azz from the firestorm of hatred directed at anyone involved in this case, especially the jurors. Is this not obvious? She’s playing up a narrative that she’s not really responsible, even though she feels so HORRIBLY RESPONSIBLE. Don’t you feel her pain?

Schadenfreude on July 25, 2013 at 6:15 PM

She’s a bimbo.

What kind of person goes on national TV and says someone she found not guilty is guilty?

And who also says there should have never been a trial.

She is the juror from hell that either the defense or the prosecution wants if the best they can hope for is a hung jury. The juror who is no brains and all emotion.

“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 “felt”. And “we”. And she claims the other jurors “felt” the same way.

She claims all of the jurors “felt” he was guilty. While all of the other jurors are terrified to show their faces, much less give an interview.

And yet…

“That’s where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it,” Maddy said. “But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can’t say he’s guilty.”

Well thank God she in the end used her brain. I’m guessing she needed a lot of help with that.

Also…

When asked by Roberts whether the case should have gone to trial, Maddy said, “I don’t think so.”

“I felt like this was a publicity stunt. This whole court service thing to me was publicity,” she said.

And the words that should terror in everyone’s heart..

“As much as we were trying to find this man guilty…

This is not what a jury is supposed to do. This is assuming guilt. This is requiring the defense to prove innocence.

And then there is that “we” again, when reportedly three voted not guilty before any deliberations began.

I bet the “we” is the other jurors trying be nice in their efforts to try to get her to use her brain.

farsighted on July 25, 2013 at 6:16 PM

I’d like to believe that the cognitive dissonance on display here is her way of simply covering her behind, to appease the mob knowing she’d be unveiled eventually anyway.

But, either way, it’s deplorable for her to go out and declare he murdered someone after finding him not guilty of that very thing. What a joke.

changer1701 on July 25, 2013 at 6:16 PM

the big story is the vigilantism that is sweeping all leftists, blind to justice.

Shall we comment that this the the only juror so far, iirc, that has allowed her name and face to be shown…all others trembling with fear. Oh, and i notice that abc helpful tells us that this was the only minority juror. Odd that, since Zimmerman is half Hispanic (but has a non-latino name so doesn’t count)

my guess is that she is 1. trying to insulate herself and family from the vigilantes that will be on the prowl once the jury’s names are released. A enemy of the State has been allowed to go free, so my guess is that we’ll see a lot more recanting if the names do get released.

plus, there’s the ever present Money angle…I was the juror that knew the truth, but failed to convince the white supremists on the jury.

at any rate, the dem operatives at abc got their scoop…barry will be happy….Eric will try to right this Injustice.

“I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end,” she said.

However, on the second day of deliberations, after spending nine hours discussing the evidence, Maddy said she realized there wasn’t enough proof to convict Zimmerman of murder or manslaughter under Florida law.

Zimmerman concedes he shot and killed Martin in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012, but maintains he fired in self-defense.

“That’s where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it,” Maddy said. “But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can’t say he’s guilty.”

When asked by Roberts whether the case should have gone to trial, Maddy said, “I don’t think so.”

Her statement says, literally, she was (and is) convinced of Zimmerman’s guilt of murder. Otherwise, she cannot make the statement she made. If he had a legitimate fear for his life, it was self-defense. Otherwise it was not.

Vincent Bugliosi uses an excellent reasonable doubt definition, “to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt.” It’s not far from “convinced.” If this lady was “convinced, she should have voted to “convict.”

Voting one way and then whining about it is chicken-stuff (retaining our guarded PG-13 rating).

The liberal media are unable to let go of the verdict, for whatever obsessive reason. Is it that they just can’t stand being wrong and accept the terms of life like adults?

They got what they wanted with the trial being convened in the first place. It seems they refuse to let go, like a kid who keeps nagging, “Are we there yet?”

The key is that in Florida, the prosecution must prove that the defendant did not act in self-defense. That standard applies to both murder and manslaughter.

That’s logic. That’s old school.

New school is about how you “feel”.

However, new school is how things were done by humans for thousands of years before enough people with some power discovered logic and reason.

How you “feel” is mob rule, and it terrified the Founding Fathers. But it’s “new school” in our brave new touchy-feely multi-cultural politically correct Orwellian nation.

what makes her so sure that zimmerman was guilty?

i hate, hate hate when people think things about others and they have no proof. i can’t stand it. if you think a certain way about someone else then that thought had to come from something, it has to be based on something.

but no. zimmerman is guilty until proven innocent. this moron just assumed that he was guilty and then couldn’t find anything to prove her assumption. and yet she still thinks he’s guilty?

this is like was i was so mad at libfreeanddie about. he/she just assumed zimmerman was a racist. basically the logic was “zimmerman is racist because he is because it’s true because i know.” *facepalm*

If it’s not self-defense, it’s manslaughter. If it’s self-defense, he didn’t “get away with murder” as a moral matter. Which is it?

This X infiniti.

Dumb broad not only outed herself but looks completely stupid doing it.

That, sportsfans, is what we call an unforced error.

Once more: She could have kept her yap shut and stayed in anonymity.

I doubt that, the names will be released eventually, legally or not.

Wow! Interesting. Hadn’t seen this before.

Question, oh Schadenfreude: Any idea what kind of weight a citizens’ jury has in Florida?

GrannyDee on July 25, 2013 at 6:43 PM

OK, when does this sh!t become defamation already? He’s innocent until proved guilty, so he’s still innocent. He’s didn’t get away with murder. Time for you and your lawyers to start getting paid, George.

Zimmerman was lucky the other jurors were smarter than this one.

AZCoyote on July 25, 2013 at 6:36 PM

Looks like Zimmerman was saved from one of the grossest injustices and a railroading by the state since Dreyfus by the three people on the the jury who forced the others to use their brains.

The one tiny bright light in this interview is that in a brief fleeting moment of rationality even this juror “feels” there should have never bee a trial.

Hopefully that gives the Wicked Witch of Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit Court some sleepless nights.

If someone this clueless, unintelligent, and driven by emotion comes to this conclusion after being forced to look at all of the evidence and testimony, what will the judge(s) who rule on Zimmerman’s malicious prosecution case conclude?

farsighted on July 25, 2013 at 6:44 PM

Playing devil’s advocate here: Perhaps what she means is she believes that Zimmerman is probably guilty but that reasonable doubt still exists.

“Beyond a reasonable doubt” is a very high standard. Maybe she did her job correctly.

Wait and see…the 4 other jurors will come out and say what she is saying and that is why they distanced themselves from the first juror B37.

I doubt that, the names will be released eventually, legally or not.

Rancher on July 25, 2013 at 6:42 PM

Too bad I didn’t get called for jury duty. The one time I would not have minded. And I’d have been loud and proud afterward.

“Come get me, libdie’s ‘people’.”
