CNN's Brian Todd compares Zimmerman trial jurors' takes on the case.
RELATED STORY: Justice system 'didn't work for us,' Trayvon Martin's father says
Last Saturday, shortly before the verdict was handed down in the George Zimmerman trial, Frank Taaffe, Zimmerman's neighbor and friend claimed (on live TV during Harris Faulkner's program featuring Judge Alex and Mercedes Colwin on Fox news) that he had information that one juror (of the six) was holding out and stopping the acquittal of Mr Zimmerman. Juror B37 interview confirms this exact scenario. Please investigate how Mr Taaffe got his information to assure the integrity of the jury sequestration process
But they all seem to came down with the same verdict. I don't think for one second if even one black juror was selected, it would have been different conversations in the decision room. President Obama did a great job speaking for blacks, the history and the context which discussions need to be had. We can never move forward with everybody being treated equally until we honestly and openly discuss our biases, prejudice and unfair treatments. Blacks are not to be chasing whites always trying to be include, no, because we are no lesser human being. But it has to be a mutual reaching out and respect. Blacks have to ultimately realize, no matter how bad we have been treated and will be.....We have to take ownership for our communities and ensure that our environments and kids are successful.....as well as other races.
yes the jurors acct,differ because they very dishonest,thank you for understanding the President's speech.its only the racist like Tapper & the fat Crowley who dont get it
Mr.Blitzer, Racism,what can you expect when even some of the white congressman show subtle racism toward our president. They may not say: they are racist, but their actions toward the president or toward some bills that he signs or passes: Actions speak louder then words. They'll say: "We are going to overturn Obama Care during the next session", just the way they say it shows prejudice and racism. I wonder what some of these white congressman say about their president when they are eating dinner at home with his children and wife. If walls could talk: what would they say.
Thank God the other jurors are weighing in, that first juror just made me sick. She sounded like that sicko Elizabeth who ever from the View. The PA's should have removed themselves from the case for conflict of interest, if they had found found Juror's that would have found Zimmerman guilty, that wouldn't have reflected well on their own police department, for letting him go at first. PA's in general don't like to tick off the police, in a way, they work together. The cops bring them in and the PA builds a case. This particular case was lost with jury selection and the first juror that came out shown every aspect of being a FOX News view and probably a fan of the Elizabeth I mentioned earlier. the investigation of the murder was so shoddy, it's going to be hard for the Justice Department to investigate. We're their photo's of the imprints in the grass, depressions etc. Oh it was raining, was there any attempt to tent off the murder scene. The PA's basically took the story Zimmerman spewed without really investigating. What we do know is Zimmerman is a liar and coward. He began dreaming about having a gun and the power to end a life, long before he got the gun. He explored many scenarios if he did shoot some one, how to get away with it and as result manufactured the story we all have been fed to this point. By the way upon veiwing a better picture of the soft drink that Trayvon was drinking, I realized it was one of my own favorites, it was an Arizona Watermelon Juice. Every time I drink one from now on I'll be thinking of Trayvon just sixteen years, 28 days old being shot by some lying coward.
It worked,just not the way he wanted it.If his boy would have been taught son manners,disipline and respect for other people he would still be alive today.What kind of police record did he have.Was he a druggie?Jim Thomas Phx.Az..
