Six jurors? Is that the standard number in FL?

I live in Florida, and it does have different jury standards for what are essentially local trials.

So, Seminole County men are smart enough to get out of jury duty? So many women hate and fear firearms that Z appears to be in big trouble!

Why does this article downplay the story in this story? The story is that all the jurors are female. The story is that Zimmerman/Martin did not get a jury of their peers. The story is that once Trayvon's attorneys get these jurors to cry by rolling out his baby pictures, ZIMMERMAN IS SCREWED. Fear of retaliation from the black community is already a done deal.

As usual, this is a tragic day for justice in America. Get ready for the gray bar hotel as your permanent residence, Zimmerman. A female judge and all female jury will fall prey to emotions, not the rule of law. "Justice" 2013.. NO MEN ALLOWED.. That would be MEAN!

In Florida, 12 jurors are required only for criminal trials involving capital cases,
when the death penalty is being considered.

Who wants to bet that all four alternates won’t be used, and that they’ll need more?

I would love that if I were Zimmerman's lawyer. If the prosecution was dumb enough to put those baby pictures in, it would open the door to bring his teenage gangbanger pics in.

Not to mention that Zimmerman has baby pics too, and these could probably be introduced to show the absurdity of the prosecution's baby pic ploy.

Prediction on outcome: The trial will last well past 4 weeks.

Bringing out pictures of George's attacker as a child would be a big mistake...it would open the door for the defense to go down the "Let's see how this baby grew up" road...something the judge so far has said she will NOT allow.

A 6-member, all female, sequestered jury?

Zimmerman’s fate may well be sealed following opening statements depending on ......... I’ll just shut up.
