George Zimmerman Juror Says 'In Our Hearts, We Felt He Was Guilty'

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. "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 said the jury was following Florida law and the evidence, she said, did not prove murder.

So much for jury trials!


Keep it Civil. Ignoring the evidence will not be allowed!
Thank you.
