Martin/Zimmerman Case: Jury Selection

Reply Fri 14 Jun, 2013 08:00 am

SANFORD — A middle-aged housewife in a hot-pink jacket — a prospective juror in the George Zimmerman trial — bluntly told attorneys Thursday that she believes he is innocent and that Trayvon Martin, the teenager he shot, was a troubled young man looking for a fight.

"I know his family loved him," said the woman. "He probably just started going with the wrong crowd. They probably didn't know about it."

She then gave a recitation of some of the most reputation-damaging things found on Trayvon's cellphone: a photo of a semiautomatic handgun; one of growing marijuana plants; a text he sent, describing a fight in which he took part.............

A polarizing case like this one is very good candidate for being decided by the jury selection. In fact, if both sides do as good a job as possible during jury selection, the expected result will likely be a hung jury.

That lady said exactly what I would say if I were a perspective juror on this case.

The jury:


Doesn't sound to me like the government has any chance of winning this one.
