Zimmerman Jury Set; All Women, No Blacks

George Zimmerman jury

The jury in the George Zimmerman 2nd degree murder trial is set. The jury is comprised of all women — 6 whites and 1 Hispanic. Zimmerman was charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012. Zimmerman claimed self-defense, saying he feared for his life when he left the safety of his truck to pursue the unarmed teenager who was returning home from a convenience store.

Under Florida law, 12 jurors are required only when the death penalty is being considered. If convicted, Zimmerman faces life in prison.

Reporting by: Dennis Byron

Hip Hop Enquirer has been in the courtroom during the selection process and while there have been several black jurors interviewed by both sides, today both defense and the prosecution have used their 10 allowed peremptory strikes to excludes people of color for one reason or another.

In particular, George Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’ Mara spent an exceptional amount of time questioning black jurors on their biases as it related to this case.

The profiles of the jurors selected are broken down as follows:

B-29
A Hispanic woman who moved to Florida from Chicago four months before the trial began. She has been married for 10 years, and has eight children. Her oldest son is 20.

B-76
A white woman who previously owned a construction company with her husband. She has lived in Seminole County since 1995. She has two children; her older son, 28, is a foreclosure/divorce lawyer.

B-37
A White woman. Married with two daughters. Animal rescue volunteer, has multiple pets. Husband is a space attorney, works with rockets. Father was Air Force captain. 18-year Seminole County resident.

B-51
White woman. Retired from real estate, 9-year Seminole Co. resident, in Central Fla. since 1987. Was juror 3 years ago, and in 1991 in Orange County.

E-6
White woman. Husband is an engineer. Children are 11 and 13. Unemployed, volunteers at kids’ school. 2-year Seminole Co. resident, had lived in Orange Co. since 2004.

E-40

      And it IS a sad truth, that he may still get off. No blacks on a jury? How do you do that?

      I know one thing….if this man does NOT go to jail, there will be some type of uprising.
      Just because some time went past means nothing. :no:
      No one is playing games with his azz, looking like the PigLady.

      Why do you keep saying no Blacks? :no:

      The woman with 8 kids self identifies as Black. Hispanic is not a race.
      The 2010 census said so. Maybe it’ll change but if somebody identifies themselves as Black, you aint being funny steady calling them only Hispanic. :eyeroll:

      __________

      First lady is Black. Two men are alternates. You only need 6 jurors in Florida so that kind of kept the pool small. Then that part of Florida is like 70/20, whites ahead.

      Did he put on all that weight as a strategy for court?
      Appear less stealthy, like you’re a fat nerd with fonky fingers and a geek mentality who wouldn’t hurt anything but maybe a few mainframes?
      Because he looks like a fat geek. Who’d think a fat geek would even entertain the thought of premeditated murder based on race?

      At least in Casey Anthonys case, everything was speculation. I mean the only thing we could conclude 100% was that she was a liar.

      We know for a fact that this dude shot and killed an unarmed teenager. If he gets off, it’ll be a damn shame.

      Sandra, I live 20 mins away from the Casey Anthony house and 30 mins from where Trayvon was murdered. Florida is a POS state where child molesters move from other states to live here because laws here against child predators are lean and a slap on the wrist. Not to mention, Seminole County is a prominent all white county. He will get off! The jury will acquit him, and someone who sells a bag of weed will get years in jail/probation and a child rapist will get 6 months probation. It’s disgusting and I can’t wait to move.
