An all woman jury, probably bad news for Zim. Greater probablility of decisions based on emotion rather than facts. More likely to think that the guy who brought the gun turned a fight into a killing.
Women are more likely to side with the family who lost a child, regardless of whether or not that child was a Thug.
That explains everything.
Close the thread - Close the arguments in court. At the end of the trial...
Them gals will let their emotions override the facts and find Z. guilty.
Im willing to give this jury the benefit of the doubt..if I had known then what I know now about the Gosnell jury I would have thought he would walk for sure(Majority of the jurors were pro choice) so can’t really pass judgment on juries, sometimes they surprise you
From the article...
“A jury of six women, five of them white and the other a minority...”
Could be black, Hispanic, Asian, martian? The details are a bit sketchy
Well, city centers are usually populated by people leaning Left.
Interesting. Thanks for the information.
If OJ Simpson had been tried by a jury of his peers the trial would have taken place in Santa Monica near where the crime occurred and he resided instead of it being tried in Downtown LA with a bunch of Low Information voters who wanted a “brother” to get away with murder
Dittoes on the hung jury remark.
The way I see this... Its the only way Z will avoid more prison time.
That makes two of us. I hate it when the left does this type of stereotyping. Even worse to see conservatives doing it.
The gender component is not as important as the racial component. White female jurors will not need to be shown the pictures of Martin to understand that he was a thug. Zimmerman can describe what he observed or a description of his clothing will do the trick. Whites are predisposed to look at black teen aged males as thugs. Hell, it is how they portray themselves in movies, TV and rap videos. Even Jesse Jackson himself has said he is relieved when he looks behind him and sees the person following him is a white person. Zimmerman should smile, he may well have won the case today. Just like OJ won the day they seated his all black jury.
Awww honey. Its not stereotyping. Its PROFILING.
See the difference?
Now. Go fix us a sammich, mm-kay?
I hate to break it to you...but there is usually some truth behind a stereotype.
A person can be retried as many times as the prosecution wants to retry in the event of "hung juries" and it isn't double jeopardy.
THAT’S a jury of his peers? Women?
his only hope a hung jury.. it is Florida ...a lot of women down here carry guns..
Could explain that HUGE and I mean HUGE smile on Zimmerman’s face today, he looked like he won the lotto..as far as the baby pictures of Trayvon, the Prosecution wont show it, they wouldnt dare open the door to having the defense show the jury the REAL Trayvon Martin..if the prosecution tries to portray Trayvon as an innocent kid, they open the door to the defense bringing in his drug use, the fact that he was high on weed at the time of his death, his suspension from school..the rumors about him being in a gang..prosecution won’t touch that..they will just try to convince the jury that Zimmerman overreacted his boundaries as a neighborhood watchman and took matters in his own hands instead of waiting for the police
You're new here, aren't you.
prosecution can’t appeal. if they lose, it’s over. it’s a one trick pony called double jeopardy.
Sorry you are disappointed, and yes, some of us are sexist under certain circumstances, including me.
Fact is, women tend to attenuate punishment for younger instigating offenders.
