CNN Guest Lashes Out At Juror B29's ‘Empty’ Apologies For Verdict, Scolded By Fellow Guests
Mediaite ^ | July 26, 2013 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 07/26/2013 7:53:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Radio host Mo Ivory lashed out at juror B29 on Friday after she came out publically on ABC’s Good Morning America and lamented the not guilty verdict she helped find in the trail of George Zimmerman. Though B29 confessed that she and her fellow jurors had little legal recourse but to find him not guilty, Ivory said that she believed in her heart that Zimmerman was guilty of a crime. Ivory called B29’s heartache “empty” and asserted that she believed B29 caved to pressure from her fellow jurors. She was unrepentant after being scolded by her fellow CNN guests for making “inappropriate” claims.

“She clearly feels like she owes an apology to [Trayvon] Martin’s family,” CNN anchor Pam Brown said of juror B29. “Does she?”

“Absolutely,” Ivory replied. “I’m still emotional about the verdict and I don’t apologize for that emotional connection at all.”

“The legal side of me understands her conflict,” she continued. In spite of the fact that B29 told ABC’s Robin Roberts that her voice was “the loudest” in the deliberation room and that she “was heard,” Ivory asserted that B29 was “bullied” into reaching a not guilty verdict by juror B-37. B-37 gave a post-verdict interview to CNN’s Anderson Cooper which some felt showed that the juror was overly sympathetic to Zimmerman.

“I do feel like she caved,” Ivory said noting that if she had stuck with her initial belief that Zimmerman was guilty, he could have been retried. “Part of me is very upset with her, and I think that the apologies after were empty apologies.”(continued)

That's exactly what I was thinking. Now she knows about 1.2% of how I felt at that true miscarriage of justice. And yet I didn't go out and burn anything and I didn't go play "knock-out" games on innocent citizens.

Something must be wrong with me ;-)

Well, apparently ABC edited her response in a way that may be suspicious.

All I know is I cannot trust anything in America anymore.

Well, there you go. They didn't have any bloodhounds to sniff the trail for clues.

“The legal side of me understands her conflict,”

Ivory is an attorney, and she's basically saying that she understands why Juror B-29 said that they could not convict due to lack of evidence -- but Ivory is irate that Juror B-29 didn't hold out for a hung jury anyway. Obviously, Ivory is thinking racially and not legally. As we know, for the overwhelming majority of black people -- race trumps all.

I mentioned in another thread that I know many black attorneys, and they all feel the same way as Ivory. While most are rabid that Zimmerman is guilty and racist, some acknowledge that there wasn't enough evidence to convict -- but they would have convicted Zimmerman anyway! So much for professional integrity. So much for fairness. So much for not being racist.

This juror was incredibly stupid to comment about the verdict.

This gives the race hustlers and professional grievance seekers a cause celeb now.

I dont remember after the OJ verdict white people rioting..or demands from the police that white people stay “civil” towards one another and not riot. I did protest the verdict along with countless others, that night in Brentwood, it was a peaceful protest, no throwing bottles at the cops or setting trashcans on fire, just lighting candles for Ron and Nicole..meanwhile what did the media tell everyone to do “Get over it” that the verdict stands and to “move on” well that is what I am telling these Zimmerman haters to do, MOVE ON, he was acquitted by a jury of his peers, a jury that BOTH the prosecution and defense chose and were fine with, no objections..but of course when it comes to a certain group of people, when they dont get their way, they loot, riot, and whine all day about not getting their way

I imagine that they would be, and I was too, but if her response was edited in a way to make it appear that she said something that she did not, then ABC is endangering her life, Zimmerman’s life and God knows who else, and they should be held accountable.

If I were her though, I would have said not a damn thing to anyone.

I was reading in one of the other threads about the context she said this in. Whatever.

The stories make it sound horrible and like slander.

By the time this is all over, Mr. Zimmerman or his widow will be quite comfortably well-off.

Yep, wrong on so many levels.

First and foremost, jurors should have the sense to keep their pieholes shut. No good can come of this, she maybe thought she could improve her standing with the Travonistas, but instead she just established her standing as a mental pygmy.

She; doesn’t know from nothing! My guess is that she’s trying to make sure some black “activist” group doesn’t put out a contract on her. Nice try, but honey they hate you right down to your Hispanic “roots.” Better move now!

Juror B29 is afraid their names will eventually get out so she’s trying to get sympathy in advance. If I was on a jury and I was the only one for guilty, or not guilty, there would be a hung jury. I would not cave.

Too many on both sides are playing with this. It’s the second time the President of the United States has interjected himself into a confrontation between those in authority on legal grounds reasonably questioned and released someone involved in a curious activity.

In both cases those representing “authority” were reported as “white” . In the second case the person working security was attacked after questioning an activity while on private rights of way and allowing the person to continue on their way. Who doubled back and attacked the “neighborhood watch” worker beating him severly on the ground and subsequently killed in a struggle over the Neighborhood Watchmans legal pistol.

In the second case both were dark skined.

Since the Zimmernan not guilty verdict has been rendered, the facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice to be committed of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent.While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot up and lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..

Instead the party that hypenated itself from God at their 2012 convention into demo-coms, and believe that all groups should be hyphenated , Afro-American, Hispanic-American, etc..Decided Zimmerman to be the egg that is to be broken,. sacrificed, so that we have an omlet..Just like Stalin did to the Ukrainian land owners known as Kulacks whom he executed, (and used that egg example) in a soclal engineering plan to organize collectives during a Russian drought..Because as we have learned there seems to be the intention to use a collective data base to create collectives.where a utopia of uniforimity of conformity exists. As was done in Detroit, and Oakland California.only this time a poor whitey or blacky won’t be able to move,.

Just as with the energy plan where the cost of fuel used for energy and transportation has skyrocketed placing those on fixed or limited incomes dependent on government handouts because of this regimes socialist policies the sacrifice of Zimmerman must die for . This time to another communist plan. We all move together in centers designed and approved by comrades running the collective who (just like Obamacare aren’t in it) won’t and never live there.

Why is this being done ? Who accompained Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the president’s hand ? Never looked into either by the House and certainly not even speculated about or reported on by the media. Seems like that could be considered pay back at US taxpayer expence. Isn’t that an impeachable offense ? Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. What better way to discourage that by organizing the base for riots in the streets ?
