George Zimmerman trial juror tells ABC: He 'got away with murder'





According to a recap of the interview on abcnews.com, Maddy told Roberts: "George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with."

"Maddy" said when she and her fellow jurors began deliberations, she favored convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder.

But on the second day of deliberations, Maddy said, she realized there wasn't enough evidence to convict Zimmerman of murder.

"That's where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it," Maddy told Roberts. "But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty."

Maddy said she feels that she owes an apology to Trayvon's parents because she feels "like I let them down."

But Maddy explained how the jury arrived at its acquittal: "You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty," she said. "But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence."

I'm grateful, that they applied the law. That's the purpose of laws and the dispense of justice.

The rest is emotional gobbledy gook.

How can he be guilty of murder if there is no evidence that he committed murder? I'm so confused.

Leave it to a woman to not know the difference between murder and self defense.

So the biggest idiot has been identified. That's good, I guess.

re: George Zimmerman trial juror tells ABC: He 'got away with murder'


First off, I wish this topic would die.

The second thing I thought was this: She said there wasn't really any evidence that he murdered Trayvon, but she's sure he got away with murder?

Why? Because she followed the law and did her job?


She shouldn't feel that she let them down, the SP should....

Trying to make life in the hood more tolerable?

The nursing assistant and mother of eight children was selected as a juror five months after she had moved to Seminole County, Fla., from Chicago.

All six of the jurors were women and Maddy, 36, who is Puerto Rican, was the only minority to deliberate in the racially charged case.

Maybe , god forbid, one day if she is getting raped or something she'll understand.

No surprise she was the minority member of the jury. I think everyone pegged her as such when they found out one moron wanted 2nd degree.

She's basically saying that in her heart, she felt like he was guilty, but due to the evidence at hand, they found him not guilty. Yet, y'all are still dissatisfied?

Good for this group of women to be able to do that. I can't imagine another group of 6 women that would ever be capable of such a feat.

Bravo to them. They got it right.

re: George Zimmerman trial juror tells ABC: He 'got away with murder'


I don't see why this is such a big surprise. Most of the jurors on the O.J. trial said they believed he was guilty also. Just because your gut tells you that someone is guilty, doesn't mean you should ignore the judge's instructions and vote to convict when the guilt hasn't been proven beyond reasonable doubt. Personally, I don't believe Zimmerman's version of how the fight started, but at the same time I can't say with 100% certainty that it didn't go down the way he said it did.

Also, kudos to her for having the guts to show her face rather that hide like the other juror with the book deal.
