Did George Zimmerman Get Away With Murder? (Surprising from this source)
Slate ^ | July 26, 2013 | William Saletan

Robin Roberts interviews Juror B29, the only minority juror from the George Zimmerman trial, on an episode of "Good Morning America" that aired July 26, 2013.

Did George Zimmerman get away with murder? That’s what one of his jurors says, according to headlines in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and dozens of other newspapers. Trayvon Martin’s mother and the Martin family’s attorney are trumpeting this “new information” as proof that “George Zimmerman literally got away with murder.”

The reports are based on an ABC News interview with Juror B29, the sole nonwhite juror. She has identified herself only by her first name, Maddy. She’s been framed as the woman who was bullied out of voting to convict Zimmerman. But that’s not true. She stands by the verdict. She yielded to the evidence and the law, not to bullying. She thinks Zimmerman was morally culpable but not legally guilty. And she wants us to distinguish between this trial and larger questions of race and justice.

ABC News hasn’t posted a full unedited video or transcript of the interview. The video that has been broadcast—on World News Tonight, Nightline, and Good Morning America—has been cut and spliced in different ways, often so artfully that the transitions appear continuous. So beware what you’re seeing. But the video that’s available already shows, on closer inspection, that Maddy has been manipulated and misrepresented. Here are the key points.

1. The phrase “got away with murder” was put in her mouth. Nightline shows ABC interviewer Robin Roberts asking Maddy: “Some people have said, ‘George Zimmerman got away with murder. How do you respond to those people who say that?’ ”(continued)

So there WAS a black on the jury.

Or is she black Hispanic?

Or is she “self identifying Hispanic”?

Tough to keep up...

All this hinges on the assumption that Zimmerman wanted to kill a black person. So when he saw one he just grabbed his gun and went after him. And of course, what everyone does when they’re out hunting blacks is call 911 first. The whole scenario is ridiculous.

I’m guessing she has no clue as to the legal or biblical definition of “murder”.

He got on the phone, yelled for people to come out, only shot ONE TIME, all in a vast conspiracy to be put on trial and found not guilty.

He also bashed his own head on the concrete so he’d have injuries as part of the conspiracy.

(BTW, there are people on the net saying what I posted above. Life is beyond satire.)

All of this crap because GZ didn’t want to go to the store and buy his own skittles and watermelon drink.

And he didn’t even get to eat or drink ‘em because the police, that he called, got there too soon.

Hmmmm... No, Z didn't get away w/ murder. Stand-your-ground trumped stand-your-ground-and-pound. Who DID get away w/ murder? O.J. But did Robin Roberts or any black reporters try to pry that out of anybody? <<>>

I guess the “all white jury” meme is gone and replaced with a juror being manipulated by the press.

The Zimmerman situation is a product of the fear of the revoking of the RACE CARD.

Obama president. Holder attorney general. Only country in history where a minority race was elected in a democracy as leader.

No more Affirmative Action? Victimhood? Civil rights shakedown artists out of work?

Then along came Zimmerman...

The part black (likely legally black in most southern states) Hispanic Democrat Obama supporter who was amazingly turned white and all of the ‘black oppression’ hucksters are back in business.

Zimmerman was just a slight casualty (as was Trayvon Martin) in service to the cause. Individuals don’t matter to collectivists.

Maddy was keen enough to understand the law in Florida and apply it to the evidence presented to her. I applaud her as a good American.

She is now being manipulated by professional devils who have an agenda which is more important than the fact that they are twisting what Maddy said to make her into a support fob for the agenda the media vermin have been instructed to push.

What they are doing to Maddy ought to be a reminder to any other jurors, that the media will twist what you say to fit their agenda and they don't give a damn who they sacrifice in the process.

You are absolutely out of order. Maddy is not a stupid b*tch and she did not say what the media are twisting her words to mean.

I’d like those who edited to video to push a false narrative to share in the liability, along with Obama, for those who are harmed or killed by the fanning of racial tension.
