One of the now infamous jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman is now speaking out.. Saying she believes George Zimmerman’s his “heart was in the right place” the night he killed Trayvon Martin..
Speaking to CNN‘s “Anderson Cooper 360” she said,
“I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done. But I think his heart was in the right place. It just went terribly wrong,” she said. — If anything, the juror said she thought Zimmerman was guilty of not using “good judgment.” — “When he was in the car, and he had called 911, he shouldn’t have gotten out of that car,” she said.
She also said she believes Martin threw the first punch in their confrontation.
“My hope is that people will read Juror B37’s book, written with her attorney husband, and understand the commitment it takes to serve and be sequestered on a jury in a highly publicized murder trial and how important, despite one’s personal viewpoints, it is to follow the letter of the law,” the president of Martin Literary Agency, wrote in a statement.– “It could open a whole new dialogue about laws that may need to be revised and revamped to suit a 21st Century way of life.”
It is reported, juror B37 has been married 20 years, has two adult children and once had a concealed weapons permit. She has lived in Seminole County, Florida, for 18 years and volunteers for animal rescue groups.
