Skip to comments.All-women jury chosen for George Zimmerman's trial
Posted on 06/20/2013 1:34:23 PM PDT by k4gypsyrose
A jury of six women, five of them white and the other a minority, was picked Thursday to decide the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who says he shot an unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin, in self-defense.

“Trayvon Martin? I don’t know too much, but is he the little boy of that momma that I saw crying on the T.V. awhile ago?”
I don’t think Zimmerman has any chance at all at a fair trial. I’ve been avoiding the daily live thread for that reason...I think the poor guy’s toast and I hate seeing what’s going to happen to him.
They all are regular watchers of “The View”......Give Zimmerman a blindfold and a cigarette......
Too interesting. Women often have trouble imagining that there is such a thing as resisting. Having been protected all their live by the labor and manners of others, some don’t understand that there are some who have no manners.
Apparently the compromise was Prosecution threw out all the white men, and Defense threw out the black men.
Good luck George!
How the hell does that happen?
Women? Zimmerman is screwed.
Interesting? Unlees you’re Zimmerman. Then it should be terrifying.
Blindfold perhaps, cigarette politically a NO NO.
Is that happening in a parallel universe? Because it isn't happening here.
Why all women? I’m stereotyping, but men are much more likely to have been in a situation where they carried guns for self-defense.
I thought jury’s were always 12 people?

“Having been protected all their live by the labor and manners of others,”
That’s a bit of a generalization, ain’t it Skippy?
Wow, I am really saddened to see this kind of sexism here. As a conservative woman, I expected more. Tell me how having 6 men gives him a better chance at being found not guilty?
If God personally intervines (which is what it will take) and a miracle happens...Look for White women to become the new white men, demonized by everyone but whites....and liberal whites besides. Then ALL white people will feel the contempt of the left equally.
Hey, the left is just fulfilling a campaign promise of ‘equal treatment for women’ right?
The court will use a lot less Kleenex with only 6 female jurors, once they start crying over Trayvon’s baby pictures.
Women are more likely to side with the family who lost a child, regardless of whether or not that child was a “Thug.” How can anyone think is fair to George?
Many women pack..there is a case of a woman in her 70s here in SoCal who used a gun last week to protect herself against an intruder..I think most women unless they are liberal idiots understand what it means to have to defend yourself
Glad your are a lot more optimistic than most Freepers. What makes you so positive about this?
So, now the prosecution will show a bunch of Trayvon’s baby pictures and gush about what a pretty child he was?
The make up of the jury gives both sides an excellent reason for an appeal. That’s what it’s all about.
the defense may be shooting for a hung jury and then free due to double jeopardy?
Response: The trial is moving right along towards the conviction of Zimmerman. I can hear the all woman jury weeping over Martin's sad fate.
Comment: However, Zimmerman had a lawyer helping to select the jury. Either he made a terrible error of judgment or he is satisfied with the actual women he helped pick.
Question: Has the jury any blacks?
the prosecution wont use the baby pictures because if they do they open the door to the defense showing the jurors the REAL Trayvon Martin, the one we have seen from his twitter page
I hope one of them has balls.
Conservative women are a distinct minority of the overall population of women. By extension, a jury comprised entirely of women is more likely to lean left politically, hence the assumption that Zimmerman is toast.
As someone surrounded by liberal men on a daily basis, I really don’t understand why the men in this thread think the way they do.
No blacks..1 hispanic and the rest white..did you see the HUGE smile on Zimmerman’s face today..some of the reporters in the courtroom said it was the first time they saw him with such a huge smile..he has a very good defense attorney he knows what he is doing
Note in my original post I used the words “Often” and “Some”.
That means, I didn’t generalize. But when you stripped them off, you did.
6 men with CCW permits would do it.
Shepard Smith was already starting , they are almost all WHITE with 1 Hispanic ,bull
I am neither positive not negative. What I am is hopeful for the right outcome and unwillingly to seal GZ’s fate based on sexist sterotyping.
Only if they are all “If ‘Michelle had a Sister” sisters.
Set theory: is there anything it can’t do?
George is a male, and he's not white.
The same trial with 6 men where I live wouldn’t back up your comments one bit.
An all woman jury, probably bad news for Zim. Greater probablility of decisions based on emotion rather than facts. More likely to think that the guy who brought the gun turned a fight into a killing.
Women are more likely to side with the family who lost a child, regardless of whether or not that child was a Thug.
That explains everything.
Close the thread - Close the arguments in court. At the end of the trial...
Them gals will let their emotions override the facts and find Z. guilty.
Im willing to give this jury the benefit of the doubt..if I had known then what I know now about the Gosnell jury I would have thought he would walk for sure(Majority of the jurors were pro choice) so can’t really pass judgment on juries, sometimes they surprise you
From the article...
“A jury of six women, five of them white and the other a minority...”
Could be black, Hispanic, Asian, martian? The details are a bit sketchy
Well, city centers are usually populated by people leaning Left.
Interesting. Thanks for the information.
If OJ Simpson had been tried by a jury of his peers the trial would have taken place in Santa Monica near where the crime occurred and he resided instead of it being tried in Downtown LA with a bunch of Low Information voters who wanted a “brother” to get away with murder
Dittoes on the hung jury remark.
The way I see this... Its the only way Z will avoid more prison time.
That makes two of us. I hate it when the left does this type of stereotyping. Even worse to see conservatives doing it.
