Skip to comments.A look at the jurors for George Zimmerman's trial
Posted on 06/20/2013 8:03:26 PM PDT by BunnySlippers
B-51 is retired, not married and doesn't have kids. She has lived in Seminole County for nine years. She has worked in real estate and run a call center where she said she had experience resolving conflicts. When asked if Zimmerman did something wrong by following Martin instead of waiting for police, she said: "Yeah, I guess he did do something wrong."
B-29 recently moved to central Florida from Chicago. She enjoys watching the "Real Housewives" on television and works as a nurse on an Alzheimer's section of a nursing home. She said she hadn't paid much attention to the shooting. She said she has been arrested, but her case was disposed of. It's not clear why she was arrested or exactly what happened to her case, though she said she was treated fairly. She is married and has several children. A prosecutor described her as "black or Hispanic" during jury selection.

[[she said: “Yeah, I guess he did do something wrong.”]]
And she was picked as a juror? Before even hearing the evidence? Mark Omalley acceptedf her?
The jury is everything. In the OJ TV trial show, the jurors were totally racist...He walked away from a brutal double murder of white people...
If this trial fails to meet justice, and becomes precedence, you can legally beat the crap out of someone for simply following behind you. Even if you have criminal intent while on drugs. Unless you are white, of course.
I agree totally.
I am a true rime freak and follow trials. I simply cannot follow this railroad trial.
It’s the sickening truth...The man was guilty as sin, but the only thing that mattered was his skin color.
Sounds like B-51 is there with a chip on her shoulder.
Six women will have no problem convicting.
So very sad. :o(
It’s a show trial, and was from the beginning. The socialist movement is particularly agitated that property rights were being protected, and anti-gun advocates are agitated that a gun was used for self-defense instead of a mass shooting. All the Left is out for innocent blood, like they always are, just because a person used a gun when they would have done the same thing themselves in the same situation.
If he is found innocent they will hound him till he is shot down or something.
I believe the majority of women on the OJ jury were women.
These days how can one be sure?
There was an issue yesterday with an Hispanic juror who asked to be excused from his duty, in part, because he was offended he’d been described as a Mexican on some blog.
Guess they’re now in a mode that reminds me of the 1957 Stan Freberg radio show. He was doing a take-off on the Cisco Kid, and reference was made to his good friend, Pancho. The interviewer asked Pancho if he was Mexican, and he replied, “No senor, Sweese. That way we don’ offend nobody”. Political correctness’s still alive and well 56 years later. And come to think of it, you probably couldn’t do that sketch on CBS now.
Heck there’s lots of things on old TV shows and movies that wouldn’t be allowed nowadays.
I remember a few times on “I Love Lucy”, Ricky spanked Lucy as if she were a child. Of course, nowadays, we’re not allowed to spank children anyway.
Of course, Disney has locked away their old movie “Song of the South”, due to alleged racism. Old Stepin Fechit movies aren’t shown on TV anymore. Ditto, it’s rare to see old Charlie Chan movies. Anything which somehow is perceived as racist, bigoted, or perpetuating stereotypes of officially recognized liberal grievance groups are censored.
The irony to me is that, in the old days, open profanity was not allowed. Today, we’re oh so sensitive about political correctness, but swearing the worst possible profanity you can think of is ok. Even children can say these words under some circumstances. And that’s okay with the liberals.
How many jurors were rejected?
with that collection he might as well plead guilty!
I shall not be in denial: this trial I shall follow. To say otherwise would surely ring hollow -- I shall sneak a peek for as a rime freak, this is one show I won't say "no" to, were I closer, it's something I would go to.
