George Zimmerman "Got Away With Murder" of Trayvon Martin, Juror Says

by at .  Updated at . Comments

George Zimmerman got away with the murder of Trayvon Martin ... so says one of the jurors that acquitted him earlier this month in the controversial trial.

Zimmerman Picture

Juror B29 told ABC she favored convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder when deliberations began amongst the six-member, all-women jury.

"I was the juror that was going to give them a hung jury," she said.

"I fought to the end."

Why'd she cave? Because under Florida law, she says there wasn't enough proof to convict the 29-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer.

"George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God," she said. "At the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions to deal with."

Zimmerman was found not guilty two weeks ago of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the 2012 slaying of the unarmed 17-year-old.

The Miami teenager was shot and killed during a confrontation by the 29-year-old - who claims Martin was the aggressor - in Sanford, Fla.

The case spawned heated national debates about racial profiling and so-called Stand Your Ground self-defense laws in Florida and other states.

Zimmerman has been in hiding, but was seen publicly for the first time last week when he helped a family after their SUV flipped over on a highway.

Juror B29 is the second panelist to go public with what went on during deliberations, following Juror B37, who was interviewed on CNN last week.

Four jurors, not including the one interviewed by ABC, issued a statement saying the opinions expressed by Juror B37 did not represent their views.

That juror said the actions of Zimmerman and Martin both led to the teenager's fatal shooting, but that Zimmerman didn't actually break the law.

Juror B29 also told ABC that she didn't believe race was an issue.

Though the judge so far has refused to release the names or biographical information about the jurors, B29 said she was 36 years old and Puerto Rican.

Martin was black and Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic.

Martin's parents believe Zimmerman racially profiled their son when he started following him after spotting him walking through the neighborhood.

B29 said she couldn't speak for her fellow jurors on the race issue. 

She feels like she owes Martin's parents an apology, however: "I felt like I let a lot of people down, and I'm thinking to myself, 'Did I go the right way?'"

"As much as we were trying to find this man guilty ... They give you a booklet that basically tells you the truth, and the truth is that there was nothing that we could do about it."

What's your take: Did the jury make the right decision?

Florida has always been a prejudice state. Every black in Florida is Targets, uncle toms, and go-fers. They talk, blow steam, but fail to take action. They will forever be miss used, because that is the only kind of life they was trained to. They are Pathetic

Treyvon Martin was waiting for George Zimmerman . Treyvon was going to kill him that night , he took MMA classes and had a history of violance.. and he wasnt out to 'Just get snacks' Hes was getting 2 of the 3 ingredients to make a home made drug , there is facebook posts between him and a friend telling Martin what he needed to get a cheap high... The 17 year old has been stealing & the proof was in his school locker , but wasnt labeled as stolen according to police , as well as already had liver damage according to autopsy . Now yes I'm sorry for BOTH families , and i realize a child is dead . but pulling the race card is beyond ridiculous ... there has been sooooooo many white KIDS killed by black ADULTS and it never makes a big scene , such as this one. If im not mistaking there was actually a case kinda like this one where a 17 year old white male was abducted and brutally murdered by a black man... & even if Zimmerman cold heartedly murdered Treyvon , automatically hating ALL white people and murdering THEM because of something someone of ANOTHER nationality did, is stupid and childish. Its time to put on your big boy/girl panties and handle things like an actual adult. Thats all i have to say on the matter. If you actually read this far. HI (:

Peyton.. you are a pathelogical Liar. If by any chance a black killed a white kid he would have been hung before a damn trial. You are sick. These people should hang your sorry ass right next to zimmerman. We hate lying ass people like you. Watch yourself, and your theory's. Do your homework before you speak

I can't tell you how little I give a shit about the so called injustice with the Martin kid! The parents also said they didn't want the trial to be about race and now they make it about race! She said TRAYVON will not get to go to the Prom!!!Shit- wasn't the kid kicked out of school when he got shot? Talk about trying to keep the flame going! Blacks commit 10 times more violent crimes than whites and Hispanics combined. You people have bitched for generations about your continuous screwed up life. It's impossible for anyone to give a shit about you. Personally- I will go out of my way to avoid coming in contact with any black be it a supermarket, cashier- anywhere! Can't stand your entitled mindset. You have no social skills for shit. Your eating manners are that of a freaking pig. You can't speak proper English, you can't complete a sentence without the word MOTHERF*CKER. You chop up every word to the point of butchering! You are an embarrassment to the any race. All you think about is eating and Fu*king. Will not take responsibility for your kids. I would rather hang around an illegal.

For you to personally take this like you were the one that was killed that night by George protecting himself. I have to wonder if you make the same fuss about black on black crime that claims HUNDREDS if not thousands of young black mens lives.

Maddy has eight kids and is a Nurse's Aide. The dumb twat didn't understand that she could convict and that hot in the panties B37 bullied the jurors to assume her side. Only people of intelligence should be on these jurys. What a waste of tax-payers money.

The jury based their decision on the evidence the prosecution presented. Jury's decision was correct in regards to what the prosecution handed them. The prosecution did not prove their case. At this point in the game, it is stinking rotten for this juror to say that she was "confused." Hope they keep her name handy and never allow her to serve on another jury ever again. If she's that easily confused, she doesn't belong on a jury.

Remember ... you are a parent.. think about the things you said. What if it was your kid?

@ T.I.T.L.

Trayvon's parents failed him. Just like so many other poor black parents that have kids out of wedlock. There are some serious social issues in the black communi ties. Also,the hiphop culture,music isn't exactly upbuilding. But degrading! Hiphop encourges people to have unresponsible sex with people that have no respect for eachother. There are so many issues in the black community.

Is there any question Georg Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin after following him, with a gun? What kinds of messed up laws does Florida have that such a condition cannot be called murder? Trayvon went out for snacks,and was nearly back at his father's house. He did not go out to fight with and be shot by some loser cop wannabe.

Then why did she vote not guilty. Does she think that coming out will some how wash her guilt away? The court of law is not somewhere to display your feelings or look into your heart! It is a place where proof is all that matters! Was the bitch there? Does she have some hidden evidence? A crystal ball? Now B-29 will be know for nothing more than a weak ass female who wants to bullshit herself so she can walk the streets with what she thinks is some site of retribution! Freaking idiot!

@ I dont care

I agree. She said Zimmerman would have to face questions from GOD on when his judgement day comes, so will she and the rest of the jurors that acquitted him. You would think since they're all mothers they could empathize with Travyon Martin's mother, it's like her feelings and grief meant nothing to them.

Zimmerman already had face God, God told Zimmerman to kill Treyvon that why he dead?

If I am ever on trial for anything, I hope this juror is not selected to serve on my jury. If she is that easily confused and cannot think clearly for herself, then she doesn't belong on any jury ever. The verdict was correct. The prosecution did not prove their case. If you're unhappy about the way the trial turned out, then blame the prosecutor.

Now I acknowledge that the black community suffers from social issues. But to say that because of the bad apples,such as Trayvon,and the parents that failed him,that every black person is evil. Is completely false. There are productive black familes (married,respectful people of communities that instill good moral and marriage values in their children). You cant say,that every African-American is damned because the majority are bad examples and born out of wedlock.

You are so fuckin ignorant. Black people are awarded the same rights as anybody. This is a different American from the days of segregation and slavery. In America everybody has the right to walk around without having to fear that somebody is running them down, You are just as wrong as Zimmerman and the fact that you are trying to validate his actions is even worse. He killed a child who had every right to be on the street.

Do you know how stupid you sound? Your the definition of ignorance. You sit there and talk so much crap about a race, when you, yourself have ancestors that came to America. Who are you to judge someone because of the race they are. Your so godly and saint like that you have the power to make that decision. Your in titled to your opinion, but the only thing i heard was true ignorance.
