Juror B 37 was interviewed tonight on CNN :No doubt that George Zimmerman feared for his life.

On CNN Anderson Cooper's 360 Show, the Juror known as B37 spoke on Anderson about the trial.  Contrary to the racial agitators and fake supporters of Trayvon Martin who believe that the six women jury might as well have been card carrying members of the Klu Klux Klan after acquitting George Zimmerman don't get is that members of the jury actually wanted to find Zimmerman guilty but the facts didn't warrant it.

Juror B37 said ""There was a couple of them in there that wanted to find him guilty of something and after hours and hours and hours of deliberating over the law, and reading it over and over and over again, we decided there's just no way, other place to go,"

 It wouild appear the the jury's mistake is that they followed the law and rendered the right decision based on the evidence presented. The fake Trayvon Martin supporters are mad at the jury, because the jury wasn't an "activist jury" like they hoped.  This is the Anderson Cooper interview with juror B37..

I've heard a number of conservatives say that "Stand Your Ground" played no part in the case. Well, someone needs to tell Juror B37 they should not have used it....

Juror B 37 says, Because of the heat of the moment and the Stand Your Ground.

Speaking of the jury, there was a potential Black juror and you won't believe why this person was dismissed . . .

Yes, P Allen. For once we agree on something. A lot of people on the right keep saying the case has nothing to do with SYG, but they really don't know what their talking about. It's only half true.


The defense in the Zimmerman case did not ask for the legal grant of immunity that that law would have potentially given him.But they did not need to. The fact is that the NRA, through changing that law in Florida, through getting Stand Your Ground enacted in Florida in 2005, got the jury instructions changed. That's what's significant.

And though it’s popular wisdom to say that that law was not at issue in this case, in fact it was, because the EXACT INSTRUCTIONS to the jury was that Zimmerman had "no duty to retreat" and had a "right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force." That’s a direct quote from the jury instructions.

Those jury instructions incorporate the Stand Your Ground law. And so, I think it is significant.

Yes, Zimmerman did waive his right to the Stand Your Ground immunity hearing to the Stand Your Ground immunity hearing, a pre-trial event. But he was STILL afforded the protections of 'Stand Your Ground', because it is embedded into Florida’s self-defense laws!

Its language, found in statute 766.012, was tailored to the Zimmerman trial’s JURY instructions. It said following:
“If George Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity and was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he reasonably believed that it was necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.”

Now despite the language on the jury-instruction form and B37’s comments about Stand Your Ground in the video in this article Tyrone posted, some right-wing commentators(not lawyers, btw) have said it had nothing to do with the case because it was a standard self-defense case. You could somewhat argue that but, Stand Your Ground is standard self defense in Florida.

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, even admitted this on Pier Morgan last night. He said he feels they did not need it(SYG), but he knows it was still a factor because it's in Florida's self-defense law and the Jury got instructions to convict or not convict Zimmerman based on it. Juror B 37 proves it in this video; they gave her instruction to convict based on Florida's SYG law.

Yes, I did a lot of research on SYG.

Excellent research Marcel!!! The defense knew that SYG and the "no duty to retreat" clause was already part of the law drawn in this case.

Theoretically, Zimmerman could have shot Trayvon mere seconds after he claimed Trayvon hit him. Seeing that the defense made Zimmerman out to be a big sissy wimp that was unable to physically defend himself, would it have been legal for him to shoot Trayvon simply because the boy "looked" scary?

In the SYG law the "no duty to retreat clause" is riddled with latent ambiguity. An example would be; A licensed gun owner is sitting in your car at a stop sign. Suddenly you see a person running in your direction with a pocket knife. Using SYG, instead of just driving away you can draw your weapon and kill them!

Of course you can come up with a few reasons why you had to draw your weapon and kill. Yet there are far more possibilities to avoid taken someones life. The SYG law is wrong!!! It needs to go!

Presidential spokesperson Jay Carney laughed at the idea of giving George Zimmerman police protection in light of recent riots and death threats and has de facto left Zimmerman "on his own". Eric Holder has also prevented the State of Florida from restoring his 2nd Amendment Rights and returning his weapon.

Is there any wonder that Zimmerman must go into "hiding"? Evidently, criminals are the only Americans actually entitled to "civil rights".

Thersites;"Eric Holder has also prevented the State of Florida from restoring his 2nd Amendment Rights and returning his weapon".

The 2nd Amendment states that an American citizen has the "Right to Bear Arms." Explain in precise detail how Eric Holder prevented the State of Florida from restoring Zimmermans right to bear arms.

Bear in mind that Local, State or Federal authorities retain all evidence in a pending investigation. But your task is to explain "how and why" he no longer has the right to own a gun.
