(The Root) — Another juror from the George Zimmerman murder trial has decided to speak out, and what she had to say really rubbed Twitter the wrong way.
Juror B29, identified only as “Maddy,” spoke with Robin Roberts on ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday. The only minority member of the jury — ABC News identifies her as Puerto Rican — she’s the second juror to speak out about the trial and the jury’s decision. The first was Juror B37, who ticked off Twitter so badly that it crushed her dreams of publishing a book on the case.
During the interview, “Maddy,” who allowed her face to be seen, said that “George Zimmerman got away with murder,” as if she had nothing to do with facilitating the decision. “I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury,” she said. “I fought to the end.”
But the fact that there was no hung jury sort of has folks on Twitter scratching their heads. I’m not sure what kind of cookie Juror B29 was looking for with this interview, but she sure isn’t finding it online.
Juror B29.. Girl bye. He got away with murder because you voted to let him go. Have several seats

Juror B29 was so sure Zimmerman was a murderer, she folded like a house of cards. Way 2 stand up for your convictions. When’s the book deal?

“I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end,” <<— What is this “end” she’s referring to?

FWIW. If I truly believed a defendant was guilty and I was the lone juror, I would accept my duty to hang that jury.

This article says that juror is Puerto Rican. Joseline gotta go use her muscles to hulk smash her cousin real quick. I’m fed up.
