Juror B29's explanation

Juror B29 has come out and apologized to the Martin family.  She has called George Zimmerman a murderer.  So why didn't she fight harder for a guilty verdict?  We hear from her, and our panel weighs in on what may have been going on in the jury room.  Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump, legal analysts and former federal prosecutors Sunny Hostin and Jeffrey Toobin and jury consultant Carolyn Robbins Manley weigh in.

    Why didn't George Zimmerman listen to the 911 operator that said don't follow the assumed suspect? If this adult had done what he was told first then everything else could have been avoided. Trayvon is a seventeen year old child that behaved like a child that feared for his life. Stand your ground law says that anyone who fears for their life has a right to defend there self. Zimmerman presented the initial threat to Trayvon and that should have voided his right to claim self defense. Zimmerman is a murderer!..

    B29 stated "But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty." Catching my eyes is the word INTENTIONALLY. The law, Florida Statues 708.04(2) and (3) and (4) stated "... although without any premeditated design to effect the death of any particular individual" and "when perpetrated without any design to effect death," Second degree murder doesn't caused "INTENTIONALLY". Either this juror misunderstood or misled the law.
