Juror Sat Through Zimmerman Trial – Never Understood What She Was Supposed To Be Doing

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.

WTF? Zimmerman was acquitted of murder by a jury she was on.

“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.”

Zimmerman pulled the trigger – he obviously intended to kill the person who was attacking him. That wasn’t the question she needed to base her decision on. Was she paying attention to anything which went on during the trial?

  1. She didn’t read cursive….

    Or something….

  2. Mike D says:

    Well she’s not completely clueless:
    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.

    who is Puerto Rican, was the only minority…

    woops…..Puerto Rican is a nationality

    “Zimmerman pulled the trigger – he obviously intended to kill the person who was attacking him.”


    When shooting in self defense, the objective is to stop the attacker. Whether they die or not isn’t relevant.

    Piers Morgan thinks she is a smart cookie.

    To Nancy Grace, she’s a brilliant hero-:)

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

    • So she thinks that he was guilty of murder – but that there never should have been a trial.

      They should have given her an IQ test before allowing her on the jury.

      • John B., M.D. says:

        I think she (as a “black Hispanic”) had a preconceived notion that shooting and killing Martin equated to murder. But then she looked at the evidence and followed the jury instructions. The low information voters in society never heard the jury instructions, nor looked at all the evidence – they think Zimmerman getting out of his car in his own neighborhood and pulling the trigger were the only facts that are important. Never mind that Martin had 4 min to call 911 and/or go home and/or stop at a neighbor’s house to call for help and/or flee the scene to a lighted area. The Jeantel interview suggests that Martin profiled Zimmerman as a gay rapist and “whooped ass” and didn’t go home because he didn’t want to put his little brother “at risk” by letting Zimmerman know where he was staying. Never mind that Martin assaulted Zimmerman.

        After looking at the evidence, I think she came to believe at that time that the case never should have gone to trial. I could be wrong.

        • Richard T. Fowler says:

          My reading of her words is that she doesn’t see the point of having a trial based on Florida’s definition of murder, because she feels that the facts clearly don’t constitute murder based on the statute. But, that she feels it was murder according to her definition of the term, the definition that she accepts.


        • Richard T. Fowler says:

          In other words, she thinks the law should be changed to define what Zimmerman did as murder, but unless that happens, she thinks a trial in this case is superfluous because the facts that establish his innocence under Florida law are in view clear enough that no trial is needed to bring them to light.


        • Richard T. Fowler says:

          “in view” s/b “in her view”

          And therefore she thinks it was illegal for him to be charged.

  8. John M says:

    One of the more mind-boggling statements was: “…were trying to find this man guilty…” Right up there with Jesse Jackson claiming Trayvon Martin didn’t get a fair trial because it wasn’t a jury of his peers…except it was Zimmerman, not Martin, that was on trial. The role of a juror and the basic concept of a jury trial have been lost. Today it’s sentences first, verdict afterwards.

  9. QuantumSam says:

    was she a wite hispanic or one of the other colors hispanic seem to come in?

    • John B., M.D. says:

      Actually, she appears to be a dark brown Hispanic.
      NYT informed me that I’m a white Chinese by their definition (half Asian, half Caucasian) – and my darker than white skin actually comes from the Caucasian half. I always considered myself American.
