The burden of following the letter of the law and not following their heart has weighed heavily on at least 4 George Zimmerman jurors. In a murder trial that divided our country much like the infamous OJ Simpson circus, many Zimmerman jurors have begged for privacy and sought counseling.
One of the jurors released the following statement that described the energy tapping experience as follows: “Serving on this jury has been a highly emotional and physically draining experience for each of us. The death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law demanded we do.”
My view is that Zimmerman incited the contact and was looking for an excuse to kill what he perceived to be a black hoodlum. The evidence presented by the prosecution did not establish this and the jurors had no choice but to release a man who should have been punished for initiating an unnecessary life-ending confrontation. I guess we will never know if Trayvon Martin really threatened Zimmerman’s life to the extent that Zimmerman had no choice but to kill him. I will repeat that Zimmerman could have probably gotten out of there without having to extinguish a life, but a grand jury comprised of 9 WHITE people and 3 BLACK people, in Ferguson, Missouri, decided that the killing of a dangerous black man was justified.
