Six jurors were assigned to the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin. In those six jurors, there were no men, all women who were all mothers, but only one juror was a minority. Isn’t a jury supposed to be composed of our “peers”.. 5 white, 1 hispanic.. What was missing?
The only minority on the all-female jury that was to give the final decision on what George Zimmerman’s sentencing would be, or acquit him of all charges. Juror B29 made a guest appearance today to “Good Morning America” where she held an exclusive interview with news anchor Robin Roberts where she finally spoke on her position on the trial & verdict. She showed her face but for safety concerns withheld her name but allowed Robin to call her “Maddy”.
In the interview “Maddy” states that Zimmerman she fought hard for Zimmerman to murder charges and how she would be that hung jury but in the end, Zimmerman “got away with murder” for killing Trayvon Martin and feels she owes an apology Trayvon Martin’s parents.
The court had sealed the jurors’ identities during the trial and still hasn’t lifted the order, so it’s surprising that this juror felt the urge to make a nationwide appearance instead of sending a private message or visit to the Martin family. There are some speculations that “Maddy” is looking for a book deal..
A Hispanic women working as a nursing assistant while also balancing being a mother of eight children..
No shade whatsoever, but gotta admit, she could’ve just stayed home or at work & shot the Travyon Martin Foundation a sincere letter or join the fight for justice.
Y’all form your own opinions of this but watch the interview below for full coverage:
