    And yet the other jurors didn't have thier mind made up and they voted the same way. Wierd. Maybe it was the evidence and lack of proof of GZ wrong doing. Go figure.

    If there was an all black jury zimmerman would have been guilty. this country is so divided that we know how the verdict will turn out by just looking at the people or "jury of our peers"

    Jury 37 said GZ was the aggressor and during the confrontation it changed. My question is and listening to HLN/CNN: How can you use the laws stand your ground or self-defense if you are the aggressor?
    She also said that the expert witness testimony weighed at lot on her decision. Didn’t the judge rule to exclude his testimony?
    How did Frank know the hold out was 5 to 1? He stated that before the verdict was read! And Juror B37 said it was a 5 to 1 hold out for a while.
    Juror B37 loved GZ!

    How could the jury be sure who's voice they heard? when the only voice they know was George Zimmerman's during his interviews? How could they come to some kind of conclusion without a professional voice comparison test between Trayvon and George's. No recordings of Trayvon's voice were provided from family videos, etc. to compare with voice specialists? Have I missed something?

    So when will she be investagated for jury misconduct , Det Serino's statement that he believed Zimmerman was stricken , she said in this interview it swayed her .

    True, Zimmerman probably would not have been attached if he stayed in his car.

    She proved in her own words that she is a racist and that she "herself" practices in racial profiling in her own words: “THEY and THEY’RE.” The Anonymous Member of Jury: “I think it’s just everyday life. The type of life that “THEY” live, and “how THEY”RE living,” She used the word “THEY” three times or more.

    How did she know how Rachel Jeantel and Trayvon Martin talked to each other when she had never heard a conversation between Trayvon and Jeantel to be able to say; "that is just how they communicate? How did she know what type of life Trayvon was living? At the particular time Trayvon was living a life that consisted of eating skittles and talking to his girlfriend on a cell phone.

    At the time of his death Trayvon was in a quiet environment where he was quietly walking home alone And the only life Trayvon Martin had at that location was taken from him. So did she really give Trayvon Martin any consideration? NO! She refuse to see Trayvon as an innocent victim walking home.

    This juror kept saying, "I think" about the situation not that she made a decision based on evidence or fact.. She had a pre conception of what happened and never changed her mind. The defense attorney's drama about displaying a chunk of concrete as a weapon was ridiculous. This case seemed all about Zimmerman's rights. What about Trayvon's rights? Getting no justice made this child's life worth absolutely zero. Zimmerman had a few cuts and bruises. So what. Scalp wounds always bleed profusely. So what. At least he didn't end up dead. What if he had. What then. Trayvon would probably got convicted of murder. Shame on all involved.

    After seeing Anderson speak with juror; having been a court reporter in criminal court for years; she had her mind made up.

    Regarding Juror B37 comments: she is an example of why the Black Panthers are in an uproar now. Some of the details still should not be permitted to sell or speak about on any type of talk show or news broadcast.
    But to me she said the best thing that the whole case should of been based on....she states that Zimmerman made the wrong judgement when he got out of his car after contacting 911.
    Enough said because I know for sure without being a lawyer, jurors, or judge; if he would of stayed in the car Mr. Trayvon Martin would be still alive!!

      Cora, you are absolutely right that that night would have ended differently had Zimmerman not gotten out of the car. However, getting out of his car broke no laws. In our justice system, you can't convict someone for making a bad decision if they broke no laws in doing so. Like it or not, that is our justice system. A lot of people make poor decisions every day, sometimes with tragic outcome. That doesn't mean they are inherently criminals. Zimmerman had already turned to return to his car when he was confronted by Martin, who then attacked him. Martin also made a poor decision. Perhaps it was simple machismo. Who knows. But by putting his hands on Zimmerman, he did break the law. That is assault. When he was bashing Zimmerman's head into the pavement, that would put a normal person in fear for their life or longtime injury. It doesn't matter what the weapon is, only to what degree a person has the ability to cause serious injury with it. That is why the jury acquitted Zimmerman.

    I hold the up most respect for any parent who has to bury their own child. However, all I hear from the parents is "Disconnect" and when asked about WHO Trayvon was, nothing. Can someone get them to show us WHO Trayvon was? I still do not know.

    I only want to add that just listening to Frank Taaffe and the hate and malice that spewed out of his mouth, and to think he was a good friend of George Zimmerman. I believe George has a dark side to him that no one else but he and Frank know that side the best.

      I agree. G Z has a very dark side to him. I also think that in his hart he have problems with black males. How can Florida/America let this man go free with out any type of punishment. NHW – Do Not Follow, look and call police. Since GZ broke all of the rules he need's to be held responsible for that, my God, he took the life of a child that was doing nothing wrong. Trayvon should not have to be murdered by an adult just because they had previous problems in that neighborhood. I looked at everything regarding this case, G Z was lying about the gun and how he got hit. God is not pleased with this and neither is most/half of America.
