Speak For Yourself: 4 Zimmerman Jurors Put Out Statement Denouncing Juror B-37, Ask For Privacy
We already know that juror B-37 from the George Zimmerman trial is a HAM. Yes, I said it. Just a few days after finding Zimmerman not guilty and providing no justice for Trayvon Martin and his family, she was out here trying to secure a book deal and was trying to get some attention by talking on CNN with Anderson Cooper. Seeing as she was one of the few jurors to initially come into the deliberation room wanting to acquit him, I know I wasn’t the only person who was disappointed by her interview and would have preferred to hear from a juror (if we must) who had their mind changed and wanted to explain why.
In the end, all this exposure has backfired for juror B-37. That book deal is now a no-go (allegedly because she claims she didn’t realize all the emotion behind the case and what was “occurring in the world during the weeks of my sequestration,” but others say a petition created by Twitter user Genie–@MoreAndAgain–caused the juror to get dropped by the publisher). And despite her blacked-out interview with Anderson Cooper, her decision to speak out oh so soon had been looked down upon by four other jurors from the case, who together have put out a statement letting people know that juror B-37 doesn’t speak for them, and they don’t want any attention–for now:
It would probably be in their best interest not to speak out even after they “process” what they have been through. They came to the decision they agreed upon and seeing how a great number of people in the country don’t agree with it, they need to just move on with their lives and not try to seek anymore attention or money from this tragedy. Especially since we don’t know what the one other juror who hasn’t spoken out is planning. Keep it moving…
