Only Minority Juror in Zimmerman Trial Now Declares Zimmerman "Got Away With Murder," Even Though... No Crime Was Proven

LIVs, meet LIJs.

She's half-Hispanic and half-black, by the way, or as the New York Times calls it, "White Hispanblackpale."

The only minority on the all-female jury that voted to acquit George Zimmerman said today that Zimmerman “got away with murder” for killing Trayvon Martin and feels she owes an apology Martin’s parents.

“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” said the woman who was identified only as Juror B29 during the trial. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

She said the jury was following Florida law and the evidence, she said, did not prove murder.

JammieWF is slightly confused about how this woman can say that the law and evidence say Zimmerman is innocent, and yet, "in her heart," she still thinks he's a murderer, and that, you know, should be the real take-away here.

At some point, if we're to have this "Honest National Discussion of Race," we're going to have to ask who exactly is thinking primarily in terms of Racial Solidarity and Skin Allegiance. Because it's pretty damn remarkable that this woman is telling us that the law and evidence said that Zimmerman is innocent, and yet still feels the need for demonstrating her Racial Loyalty by proclaiming him a murderer anyway.
