    I don't know what news media you watch...MSNBC I would guess..everything you say is disproven if you actually watched the trial..I did! The trial, in the first place should never have been even taken place...no evidence AT ALL! The judge was NOT for Zimmerman..if you. Watched you would know that..the juror you talked about , B29 is only wanting to sound as tho she wasn't in agreement with the verdict...the time for that was during the deliberations..all the others even the alternates are in agreement with the verdict! The opposite also applies to the idea that feelings were applied to reach the verdict! Feelings have no place esp. With all the evidence in this case!! My goodness the prosecutors had ZERO evidence that Z was guilty! You need to go back and read about the trial! As far as God, He is on the side of TRUTH, not lies..Z had no obligation to testify...he had been drilled by the police already and they didn't charge Z as there was zero evidence to prosecute him. BUT OH NO, the blacks had to start all their crap, hoping to intimidate the state to take Z to court! Oh yeah, well look what happened...go back and educate yourself before you write such unsubstantiated i facts!

    This juror B 29 just confirms along with other juror how its all around institutional racism. Starting with the judge who made sure it was 5 white women jurors, then disallowed racial profiling to be used which was clear from all of Zimermans 911 calls and the fact that Travon was doing nothing wrong that night except fitting a description of being black. The judge excepts that stand your ground will not be used to make sure Zimmerman does not have to testify but makes sure that its within the jury's instructions to further help Zimmerman. The prosecution makes prescedence by not doing sum of the most simplistic things which a lot of seasoned lawyers agree. Juror B29 admits that the evidence proves Zimmerman was guilty, WELL that's exactly what they needed to convict. She said she needed to know he intentionally killed Travon.....That's why Zimmerman had gun classes, went to shooting ranges, to know exactly where to shoot someone to kill them.....He knew Travon wasn't getting up from a Heart shot....that's why he immediately "holstered his gun afterwards. These jurors just seems to be trying to excuse the law by claiming feelings, but it's not how the law was read to them but how they took hold of the law and applied it. She talks about God, but God was using them to hold Zimmerman accountable and they were negligent
