A jury of six women, five of them white and the other a minority, was picked Thursday to decide the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who says he shot an unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin, in self-defense.

Glad your are a lot more optimistic than most Freepers. What makes you so positive about this?
So, now the prosecution will show a bunch of Trayvon’s baby pictures and gush about what a pretty child he was?
The make up of the jury gives both sides an excellent reason for an appeal. That’s what it’s all about.
the defense may be shooting for a hung jury and then free due to double jeopardy?
Response: The trial is moving right along towards the conviction of Zimmerman. I can hear the all woman jury weeping over Martin's sad fate.
Comment: However, Zimmerman had a lawyer helping to select the jury. Either he made a terrible error of judgment or he is satisfied with the actual women he helped pick.
Question: Has the jury any blacks?
the prosecution wont use the baby pictures because if they do they open the door to the defense showing the jurors the REAL Trayvon Martin, the one we have seen from his twitter page
I hope one of them has balls.
Conservative women are a distinct minority of the overall population of women. By extension, a jury comprised entirely of women is more likely to lean left politically, hence the assumption that Zimmerman is toast.
As someone surrounded by liberal men on a daily basis, I really don’t understand why the men in this thread think the way they do.
No blacks..1 hispanic and the rest white..did you see the HUGE smile on Zimmerman’s face today..some of the reporters in the courtroom said it was the first time they saw him with such a huge smile..he has a very good defense attorney he knows what he is doing
Note in my original post I used the words “Often” and “Some”.
That means, I didn’t generalize. But when you stripped them off, you did.
6 men with CCW permits would do it.
Shepard Smith was already starting , they are almost all WHITE with 1 Hispanic ,bull
I am neither positive not negative. What I am is hopeful for the right outcome and unwillingly to seal GZ’s fate based on sexist sterotyping.
Only if they are all “If ‘Michelle had a Sister” sisters.
Set theory: is there anything it can’t do?
George is a male, and he's not white.
The same trial with 6 men where I live wouldn’t back up your comments one bit.
