Juror B29 was recently interviewed by ABC news and made a bombshell statement regarding Zimmerman. She claimed that he ‘got away with murder.’ This juror decided to show her face and gave the name “Maddy.” She is of Puerto Rican descent.
Maddy stated during the interview:
“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty.”
Appearently, she feels that Zimmerman is guilty but decided to give a not guilty verdict. This sounds strange to me. If she felt he was guilty, why did she give the not guilty verdict?
Moreover, she continued,
“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.”
I’m not too sure that this juror is being honest with herself. I think she is claiming this now in order to draw the public’s anger away from her. She showed her face, so she clearly had to find a way to draw the anger away so that she would not become a target herself.
Perhaps she is doing this to draw attention and profit? Who knows?
This trial and the aftermath is a complete circus.
