  • ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The second juror to speak publicly about George Zimmerman‘s trial tells ABC News that she feels the neighborhood watch volunteer got away with murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. But she says there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him under Florida law.

    Juror B29 told Robin Roberts in an interview made public Thursday that she favored convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder when deliberations began. But by the second day of deliberating, she realized there wasn’t enough proof to convict Zimmerman of a crime.

    Juror B29 is the second juror to go public with what went on during deliberations earlier this month. She allowed her face to be seen and used her first name, Maddy, unlike JurorB37 who was interviewed on CNN last week with her face obscured.

    Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the late Trayvon Martin, released a statement responding to juror B29′s statement, it reads:

    “It is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror B29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true. That George Zimmerman literally got away with murder. This new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child. That’s why Tracy and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son.”

    1. I have learn several excellent stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you place to make one of these wonderful informative web site.

    2. OPINION: Zimmer got away with murder plain and simple. FACT: Zimmer was armed with a gun. Trayvon was unarmed. FACT: Zimmer was stalking Trayvon. Trayvon was minding his own business just leaving a store with only his cell phone, a tea and a bag of skittles. FACT: Zimmerman called the police on Trayvon. Why? What was Trayvon doing? Walking home from the store, talking on his cell phone with a friend. FACT: Police told Zimmerman NOT to follow Trayvon; however, Zimmerman ignored police. Why? OPINION: Zimmerman knew the “Stand Your Ground” law and knew his intentions. Zimmerman CREATED a situation that would be upheld by the senseless “Stand Your Ground” law because he knew the law and that he had no “duty to evade or retreat” from it. QUESTIONS TO ASK: If Zimmerman felt threatened, why did he follow the person he felt threatened by? If you felt threatened and could get away, wouldn’t you get away from the person you felt threatened by? I would. OPINION: If at anytime Zimmerman felt threatened, it was AFTER he initiated a criminal act on Trayvon and Trayvon reacted by defending himself against Zimmerman. OPINION: Zimmerman was the catalyst in this incident. Had he listened to the police and NOT went after Trayvon, the outcome would have been different. I feel Trayvon would be alive today. OPINION: This tragic incident and verdict was racially motivated. ATTENTION JURORS: The facts were there. You just chose to ignore them. ATTENTION JanCorey: For you to say Trayvon deserved that bullet…shame on you. You have no respect for his family nor regard for any human life. I hope you never have to experience such tragedy. FACT: The Bible says “you reap what you sow” and “vengeance is the Lord’s”.

    3. The 911 tape in itself is PROOF GZ pushed this issue. He was told to “stay away” and he did not follow directions. I could careless if Trayvon was whatever some are trying to make him out to be; the bottom line is Trayvon was UNARMED, GZ was told to stay away in his TRUCK and having a gun on himself, etc. GZ INSTIGATED the situation. SO what is now, pick a fight with someone, if you start to lose the fight, take out a gun and shot to kill.

      • Teresa, Trayvon is dead because of his actions that Trayvon did, it is not a good decision to attack a victim while using a cement sidewalk with a metal can in your pocket imo; it’s just wrong, it’s criminal, and if you bash a victim’s head against cement, you might really get what’s coming to you in the size of about a 9millimeter which is the best choice imo.

        • @JanCorey you are an obvious supporter of George Zimmerman so why come to this website and spew your hatred. The majority of readers on this site and America will agree that GZ was guilty for the murder of Trayvon Martin but Florida’s one-sided “stand your ground law” said differently. How is it that someone can get out of his vehicle approach someone because he doesn’t feel he belongs in the neighborhood. TM had every right to be there as GZ but its bigot attitudes and ignorance like yours that is trying to set this country back 60 years. As a mother to African-American boys (one of which is a teen) I fear each and every time my child steps foot out the door he will encounter someone like you or another GZ…Since you always talk about stating facts…..lets state some facts: TM had no criminal history nor was he a thug. He was a typical teenager…..Judging from all the hatred rants you must be what some would say “poor white trash”, with a lack of education, and feel hatred towards any other person especially blacks that are doing better than you…….We can’t change your life only you can but I pray more for people like you and GZ each and every day because as of now you’re are an embarrassment to society.

        • No, kailynn1984, I am a supporter of the facts and the truth.George Zimmerman just happens to be in the right according to the facts and the Law.

        • Kailynn1984, I am not a fan of George Zimmerman as you so incorrectly claim. I am, however, a fan of facts and the Law and helping those people that do not consider the facts of this case to be relevant since they were brainwashed by the media many months previous to the court case where they have long-stood their ground and the verdict proved them to be totally wrong as they still continue to lash out against the facts they still appear to be so scared by. Kailynn, you appear to be one of those just totally embarrassed that you have been proven to have been sooooo wrong for sooooo long. I get it, your not well-educated and I see why. You don’t appear to be book-smart or have the motivation to even seek out the truth because you appear to be soooooo scared of the facts because you simply do not fully-understand them. I get it. But, you don’t have to remain in such a defiant-position, you can learn, can’t you? Are you a mental case? Did you sit yourself ontop of a broomstick or something? There may still be a chance for you if you at least try to learn the facts of this case before you jam your own foot back down your throat again. Good luck to you and God speed. George Zimmerman for President of the United States of America, and Gun-Control is being able to hit your target.

        • JanCorey is obviously going to burn in hell. I see at least six obvious lies about the case that this idiot has posted here. With any luck, she will be the next one someone like Zimmermann shoots. The world will be a better place for it.

        • Desiderata, I am going to heaven after I die, at least according to the bible and other spiritual teachings. I don’t lie as you so incorrectly claim, I do, however, post facts about this case that many uninformed and uneducated just can’t seem to get a grasp of because they appear to not be capable of understanding that they have been so very wrong about this case for sooooooo very long that the Acquittal has driven those like that and you into a state-of-mind of defense and back-pedaling on comments they have so incorrectly made over such a long time that they truly are embarrassed and they collectively are upset with themselves for being sooooooo mislead by many of the media that has proven them to be too inadequate to their own liking and they feel such a failure for being wrong for so long making such ridiculous and salacious idiotic comments on blog-sites all over the net during their trolling. I did forward your previous comment to the FBI for your threat on my life which is a felony that may come against you. You may want to copy anything you deem valuable from your pc since you may not have access to it for very long. Good luck on your crime, Desiderata. (seriously)

        • Desiderata, nope, not going to Hell as you so incorrectly claim in your troll-rant. Going to Heaven as Jesus’ scriptures have taught. Bring some wieners and some marshmallows with you down there when you go.

    4. Everyone please refrain from commenting on JanCorey. She is a coward and is mentally ill. She is probably a pseudo person who may actually be black and is trying to keep this hatred going. We all know that GZ got away with murder, lets work on trying to change the laws in Florida. I myself will not be spending my money in Florida, as I am from VA. I will join others in helping to hurt the economy in Florida until they change their laws.

    5. All of you, please be advised. JanCorley has been comng on this site ever since tis trial ended. Exclusivley for the sole purpose of bigoted instigation and nullification. Please ignore those posts as they are not inteded to be for conversation and discussion, but rather to promote obstruction of the same. Just let that mess go, and dont waste your time. It isnt worth responding to at all.

    6. You have bullied people here but not me. I am fully aware of the facts of this case. GZ was, is and will always be a coward. If you knew as much as you think, you do you would stop saying things that are unfounded. TM was not high on DOPE. According to toxicology reports, there was a very minuscule amount of THC in his system. You should know that would have to have been from previous use. Too bad that we don’t know what your boy George was high on. Since he was not tested we will never know. Next, according to scientific there was no foreign DNA on TMs hands. If GZs head was getting bashed into the concrete in the manner he stated and you choose to believe how did that happen? Finally GZ is no hero he MURDERED an unarmed teenager. Your hero standards must be pretty low.

    7. You are so rude, ignorant and STUPID. You have bullied people on here but not me I am fully aware of the FACTS in this case. GM is a coward and a MURDERER who ask for a butt whipping and got it. You could use a good old fashion whipping yourself. Your bias view on life is what causes you to believe that TM was guilty of something simply because he existed. GZ was set free because of the same mindset

      • Ave., George Zimmerman is not a coward but you appear to be one yourself Ave., at least according to your trollish-rant where ytou attack the facts regardless of your understanding of the truth behind the acquittal of George Zimmerman. You can continue to remain ignorant to the facts if you choose, but I will stay on the side of the fence where facts matter. Thank God Mr. Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon-dope-head-thuggster, George is a hero to the Americans who are well-informed.

    8. It’s easy to come into a chat room that your ignorant ass doesn’t belong in talking disrespectful, but I bet that ignorant piece of white shit trash wouldn’t have the guts to approach a Black person in public and say that shit. Nope, that person would hide just like the sorry ass juror who is staying in hiding. You racist kkrakkas will get what’s coming to you and I hope you burn in hell afterward.

    9. Sounds like she’s not stupid. She probably fears for her life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The Black Panthers put a bounty out on Zimmerman for $10k and then tweeted “Kill the Whities”. Plus, the Black Panthers have been quoted saying, “This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.” …..I’d get on national TV and show my face (because she knows her name will eventually be leaked) and say what she’s saying too. The Black Panthers are disgusting.

    10. This is what I read on the LA Times website:

      She said she owes an apology to Martin’s parents because she feels “like I let them down.”
      Now, in the trial’s aftermath, she said she struggles to sleep and sympathizes with the grief Martin’s parents have endured. She said she’s not sure she made the right decision.
      “It’s hard for me to eat because I feel I was forcefully included in Trayvon Martin’s death. And as I carry him on my back, I’m hurting as much [as] Trayvon’s Martin’s mother because there’s no way that any mother should feel that pain,” she said.
      Since Juror B37’s interview with Cooper last week, a group of four other jurors released a request for privacy and said B37’s opinions were “not in any way representative” of their own. Juror B29 was not among those four jurors.
      She had kept her silence but now has become the first to express doubts about her decision.

      She did not consider the FACT that Zimmerman LIED at least THREE TIMES?!?!?!?! First, he said the gun was in his back waistband and then later, he said it was in his FRONT waistband.
      He said in court that he did not know Martin was a teen, but he is heard in the 911 calls as describing him as being in his “late teens.”
      At first, he said he did not pursue/follow Martin but then later said he did. (Although Zimmerman did not have to follow the advice of the dispatcher, he still lied.)
      My point is this juror did not take into account that Zimmerman lied to justify [his] MURDERING Trayvon Martin. He lied so that he could later say he was “standing his ground.”
      Oh, and I cannot prove he did not know about Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law but even I know about Colorado’s castle doctrine “Make My Day” law. ANY RESPONSIBLE gun owner would know; whether they have studied for a police exam or not. (I’m not buying it.)

      • Keeba, the problem has already been resolved, problem eliminated, and the threat is now gone because Trayvon Martin is dead. Mr. Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges and is now busy saving other victims like in the recent vehicle rollover. Looks like you have been made a fool, Keeba, sorry for that but Justice has been served in this case imo.

    11. Everyone please just ignore Jan Corey. She herself is the troll. Is she related to the inept state attorney Angela Corey?

      • I just hope Jan can’t reproduce. People please have your pets spade or neutered. Jan’s mother’s owner forgot.

    12. Lemme see-the recording from police dispatch we can hear the dispatcher saying ‘you should not
      follow or get out of your car.’

      Young man walking down the street minding his business and here comes a Nut Ball with a gun
      and ready to use it.

      See this is what you get when you fratinize with people [trash] that are the decendants of those
      who were [kicked out of Britan] because they were murderers,theives and generally unwanted by
      their own country so they were supposedly being sent off the end of the earth. Ahhhhhh the
      apples don’t fall far from the trees. The more things change – the more they stay the same.

      This is nothing new to those of us that grew up in the 60′s and many of us ARE NOT FOOLED by
      the smiling faces.

      I live in a suburb-and a veteran-so if I walk down the street at night and out pops a nut like
      small zimm-what should I do? HAVE A GUN .TO DEFEND MYSELF!!!! Stand your ground is a 2 way street.

      Maybe if Trayvon had a gun to defend himself we wouldn’t be talking about this – cause crazy g
      would have gotten back in his car and went his way. Hey I belive in Jesus! And I belive in
      defending myself. I’m just saying.

    13. JanCorey, you state that Zimmerman should be given a medal for protecting our neighborhoods from people like Trayvon Martin. I have one question. What did Trayvon Martin do that the neighborhood has to be protected from. He was a sixteen year old child walking home from the store. I think I understand what your shallow mind is trying to say…”protected from Black people.” It is people like you that is the problem with the world today.

      • Roger Clay, Trayvon Martin was high on illegal dope at the time he attacked Mr. Zimmerman and he was armed with both a metal can and the use of a cement sidewalk where he bashed a victim’s head against the cement enough times that the victim was reportedly in fear of great bodily harm or death and the final results for criminal-Trayvon was death by a bullet to his heart. Now, RC, I would have done things differently if I was attacked by a predator like Trayon Martin. I would have unloaded my full clip into the head of that monster and would not have stopped until I knew the clip had been cleared. Police had already said that if Trayvon had lived, he would have been charged with felony-crimes for his actions. Time and expense has been spared, thank God for George Zimmerman.

    14. Tyrone Flowers, stalking is a crime. What George Zimmerman did was not a crime, he simply followed per the directions he received from police dispatch. Big difference. Try, instead TF, to learn the Law and to use the facts when trying to discuss this case, because it may assist you in appearing at least to be a little more informed than you are currently imo.

      • He DID NOT follow the instructions of dipspatch. He exited his vehicle. And let me rephrase. If you were being FOLLOWED and that person exited his vehicle, what would you do?

        • Tyrone Flowers, read the court transcripts and you will see you are still wrong about George Zimmerman did follow the instructions from police dispatch and you are still incorrect TF. You cannot correct your ignorance of the facts by re-creating new facts, the court has already spoken TF. May I suggest you pry your own foot out of your own mouth and look up the facts and try to understand what you clearly are still confused about. You are making yourself appear even more like a troll and you are seemingly still oblivious to the facts of this case. And, yes, George Zimmerman was found not guilty on all charges, every single one of those charges you seem to think he is guilty of. Now, who’s the idiot? If you ask me, I’d say it is you Tyrone Flowers.

        • TF, actually, you are wrong again, he did follow the directions of police dispatch. It appears you missed the case you are trying to change the facts on, but the facts will not change, no matter how ill-informed or stubborn you are TF.

      • Leon Hunter, not stirring the pot as you so incorrectly claim. I am simply just supplying facts that many here do not yet appear to understand. It seems they must be getting their incorrect versions of this case from the media and not from the facts of this case.

        • These days even on the internet you can’t hide. Hackers are good. People like JanCorey will eventually piss the wrong person off and that person will not stop until they’ve gotten satisfaction. So JanCorey you think you cute now but when you’re out in public and you feel you’re being followed think about what Trayvon felt because suspicion in now on you.

        • Wildflower, I am ready for any attack Wf, armed to the tilt and just ready to defend the facts that many are still scared of. My last shot wasn’t the first, won’t be the last, the facts do not change regardless of the various circumstances or opinions; facts remain the facts. Pretty simple really. Trayvon is dead because of his actions that Trayvon did, it is not a good decision to attack a victim while using a cement sidewalk with a metal can in your pocket imo; it’s just wrong, it’s criminal, and if you bash a victim’s head against cement, you might really get what’s coming to you in the size of about a 9millimeter which is the best choice imo.

        • May I suggest that you gun down any threat to your life and be an active member of the pro-gun agenda.

    15. What
      happened to sticking to your guns during jury deliberations, nobody held a gun to your head and made you go along to get along.

      • Gwen H., I think he should be given a Medal–of-Honor for his efforts in protecting our community from predators like Trayvon Martin.

    16. WHAT GOOD IS LAW THAT HAS NO MORALITY OR DOES NOT TAKE ACCOUNT OF HUMANITY IT ONLY GOES TO SERVE ITSELF AND THOSE WHO KNOW HOW TO WORK THE LOOPHOLES. IT IS POLITICS AND THE PIMPING OF WORDS. THE LAWS WE HAVE ARE HUNDREDS OF YEARS OLD AND ANY ADDITIONS ONLY BOLSTER THE THOUGHT PROCESSES OF A TIME IN WHICH WE WERE NOT EVEN CONCIDERED HUMAN. HERES A FACT AFTER THE CIVIL WAR TO “FORTY ACRES”
      WE WERE DENIED ARE THE NOW STATE OF FLORIDA.

      • 55th st silverbacks, at least that dope-head-Trayvon learned a lesson from this, didn’t he, that is not a proper or legal thing to bash a victim’s head against a cement sidewalk while being armed with a metal can in your hoodie, right? Thank God George Zimmerman was there to protect the community from this thug-Trayvon.

        • Tyrone Flowers, no need for protection from me, I am simply providing facts regarding this case. Didn’t intend to scare you TF, many like you are found to be illiterate-of-this-case and uninformed to the facts of this case, and sometimes the facts cause them to act irresponsible and troll-like just like you. You must be so proud of yourself to reach the level as identified as a troll by WordPress, check it out on page 112 to be a bio and a troll-list on you. You’re a hoot Tyrone! :)

        • @Jan..what kind of sicko are you anyway? Pull your head out of your rear and thing for a few minutes. Do you really think IF Treyvon had “bashed” Zimmerman’s head on a concrete walkway way that Zimmerman would have been able to gather his wits about him, get his gun from his belt or where ever, COCK IT, and shoot?? Seriously?? If his head was bashed against the concrete in the manner in which he and the prosecution said, he’d be unconscious, brain damaged, or at least delirious! Let’s try bashing your head against a concrete sidewalk a couple three times full force and see how it renders you!

        • Yvette, I am not a sicko as you claim, although I do agree that you are a troll. It appears clearly that you missed the trial of George Zimmerman vs. the state of Florida, and replying to your rants will not educate you anymore than the low-level you exist right now imo. So I will have to take a pass right now and just hope you are willing to try and learn the facts first, before you jam your own foot back down your throat again like you have done so many times before. Maybe you can have an adult help you out and maybe you can return here and attempt to try and re-engage this conversation once again in a more-adult-manner next time. Yes, George Zimmerman was acquitted and I believe a formal investigation of the prosecuting team needs to take place with prison time for each prosecutor needs to be a lengthy sentence too for each prosecutor. God speed.

    17. I got a new name for Zimmerman. I am going to call him BAM-BAM from the Flintstones. Every time I see him I am going think about Trayvon pounding his head on the pavement, I think of the sound BAM-BAM made when he comes into the room he says, BAM, BAM, BAM.

    18. Tatum, B.D. (1997). Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria? New York: Basic Books.
      Racism is a system of advantage based on race. And you have to ask yourself, who is advantaged by this system, and who is disadvantaged? In the U.S., it’s the white people who are advantaged. This is all about preparing kids for leadership in the 21st century. Everyone pays a price for racism. Racism harms white people as well as people of color, particularly in terms of the rising tide of fear and violence that exist when people don’t know how to cross racial boundaries.

    19. I did not even read the article because it is BS. As far as I am concerned, she had an opportunity to stand behind a vote for manslaugher because there was enough evidence to prove manslaugher. Now, she wants to go on the interview circuit?!? Really? This is just a money grab…

      • She should have held out and caused a hung juror if she felt that strongly. Sounds like she let someone (maybe juror B-37) bully her into voting to acquit. What ever the case, he is legally free of all criminal charges. Hopefully the Martins will get a civil verdict in their favor. What Zimmerman should never be allow to do is make one dime off of this young man death… No books, movies, etc…

    20. What individual jurors think or say is irrelevant to the Acquittal of George Zimmerman. The only thing that matters is the actual court-validated Acquittal and the needed-death of Trayvon Martin.

      • Jan, I know you are back trolling, but I was visiting my mother a couple of weeks ago and went to 7-11 at night a couple of times. If they had a wannabe “watchman”, would I need to be dead?

        • Tyrone Flowers, no, you don’t need to be dead unless you slam a victim’s head against a cement sidewalk while being armed with a metal can in your hoodie, I guess. And, I do agree with you that you are a troll too, just don’t allow the facts to continue to scare you so much for they are only facts and cannot hurt you TF.

        • Tyrone Flowers, personally, I’d put a bullet in between their ears because they then, the stalker, poses a threat. Legal, a proven threat-elimination-tactic and a proven legal strategy to protect from fear and harm. Simple and precise, imo.

        • To defecate in his cowardly pants.

        • Zimmerman’s-a-murderer-who-killed-a-kid-that-wasn’t -active-in-a-crime, Trayvon already defecated in his pants according to the coroner’s report. Try to stay up with the facts would be my suggestion to you, since you come as a complete and total troll and a$$, imo.

        • Jan, why would you be right in putting a bullet into someone’s head but Trayvon was wrong to defend himself with his hands?

        • Ty, Trayvon deserved the bullet, and many more if you ask me, because he was the person who imitated deadly force by pounding George Zimmerman’s head against the cement walkway. Here’s a clue Ty, go outside to your nearest cement walkway and bash your head against the cement hard enough, with opposite resistance, to sustain the injuries suffered by Mr. Zimmerman, then return here and let’s see if your mind has been enlightened any. If you smash your head enough, it will change your perspective on the facts of this case. Go on now, get out there, and maybe bring some bandages and a cell-phone so you can call an ambulance for yourself. Hurry up!

      • You are so rude, ignorant and STUPID. You have bullied people on here but not me I am fully aware of the FACTS in this case. GM is a coward and a MURDERER who ask for a butt whipping and got it. You could use a good old fashion whipping yourself. Your bias view on life is what causes you to believe that TM was guilty of something simply because he existed. GZ was set free because of the same mindset

        • Avc., you were already proven to be incorrect in your rants, I recommend that you spend your time researching this case instead so you hopefully don’t come off as literally-stupid and ignorant as you do right now, with all due respects to your lack of education and knowledge. Informed and well-educated people will pray for you in your misery and your defiant-refusal to consider the actual facts of this case. God speed. George Zimmerman for President of the United States of America!!!

        • I agree ave that you are rude in your trollish-conduct. Even so, it still doesn’t change the facts of the case and George Zimmerman was rightfully acquitted in accordance to the Law.
