STATE vs. ZIMMERMAN JURORS’ REQUEST FOR PRIVACY

We, the undersigned jurors, understand there is a great deal of interest in this case. But we ask you to remember that we are not public officials and we did not invite this type of attention into our lives. We also wish to point out that the opinions of Juror B-37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below.

Serving on this jury has been a highly emotional and physically draining experience for each of us. The death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do.

We appeal to the highest standards of your profession and ask the media to respect our privacy and give us time to process what we have been through.

Thank you,

Juror B-51

Juror B-76

Juror E-6

Juror E-40

    What OJ Simpson and George Zimmerman have in common (besides acquittals for their crimes): Both men repeatedly were accused of violence against women well before their murder trials began. Violence against girls and women is often an overlooked and unchecked indicator of future violence.

    If I was that juror I would no way go out in public or tv..like she did Juror B37! To a point tho' I see where she's comin from of what she says tho'. Just wish Florida had a law inbetween a manslaughter and a not guilty crime like where some of the issue is or could be Zimmermans' fault. Like maybe provoke or suspend his useage of firearm permitor something along that line. In o.j. Simpsons aquittal there were no violent or any protests were there??

    The way I see it, Zimmerman could have walk away also but he was not going to let another black male get away. So, all someone has to do is go to Florida, have a concealed firearm and provoke a fight, lose the fight, shot to kill, and claim self-defense. Jodi Arias should have thought about that because she would be home right now instead of jail.
