Did you see or hear that interview with her on CNN? Seems very clear that she makes no effort to be informed about the world at all, and that she carries around a set of racial assumptions, let us say, and is utterly and totally unconscious about them. She thinks Zimmerman's--get this--"heart was in the right place." She thinks this would have gone down the same way no matter what color anybody was. Including, as she put it, "Spanish." Spanish?

What's more incredible than her proud ignorance is that the prosecution didn't strike her in the first place, as Dahlia Lithwick wrote in Slate. She kept bragging--bragging--that she doesn't pay any attention to the world. That she worries about her life and that's it. That she doesn't trust the media, which no one does, but she doesn't even read a thing, not one thing. That "you never get all the information." That last point should have been the clincher. Lithwick:

Gail Brashers-Krug, a former federal prosecutor and law professor, is currently a criminal defense attorney in Iowa. She also jumped back when B37 said,”You never get all the information.““That's exactly what a defense attorney loves to hear,” says Brashers-Krug.“That's reasonable doubt, right there. If I were a prosecutor, that would make me extremely nervous about her.” She adds that B37’s devotion to animals might raise flags for her as well.“The animal thing is weird. She doesn't know how many animals she has, and she mentions her animals far, far more than her two daughters. She strikes me as eccentric and unpredictable. I never, ever want eccentric, unpredictable people on a jury.”

I like juror B-37 she's has started a book about her experience in the Florida V.Zimmerman it's a tell all and she will be competeing wth the other jurors for their book sells and guest appearances very soon and what's so cool is that I can see a roadrunner v coyote experience in the near future the jury will make the case the Feds.
The talking heads say that the FEDS don't have a case well we say yes we do,yes we will and yes we can.

Both the defense and the prosecution agreed on the jurors. Either side had the option to refuse to accept the above mentioned.

The trial is over. Zimmerman is free. Deal with it.

Guess if I were a juror who found Zimmerman innocent I'd not write a book. They will be on hit lists of the black panthers along with Zimmerman.

Blacks don't trust the US judicial system.

I'm not sure anyone trusts the US judicial system anymore.
