This case has proven one thing. The race baiters like Al Sharpton don't want blacks to be equal, he wants them to be superior to all other races. To never be questioned, nor expected to provide for themselves. To never be expected to earn their equality like all races have before them. This race issue will continue as long as blacks refuse to take responsibility for themselves. The battle of Gettysburg just turned 150 years old, and this country is still in the "dark" ages.

In light of the Zimmerman verdict, we have to ask ourselves...

Are women are suitable for jury duty on high profile murder trials?

women can reason as well as men. This they proved in their verdict.

Women who resonate that we are becoming a police state recognize that most of them won't fare that well with to much security. It is time to stop kissing the azz of criminals and stop making criminals out of men.

The jury was sequestered by the prosecution and the defense. The prosecution was hoping that the "child" Trayvon would appeal to their motherly instincts. Instead, the 6 women viewed the thug aspect.

I totally agree.

Another all white jury in Texas qualifies for that title too. They just let a white man who killed a Mexican prostitute in cold blood walk free. Their reason? It was legal for the murderer to use a gun to try to get his money back from the prostitute and to kill her if she refused the refund.

No it's notBS.
Women are better able to think clearly under pressure(in real life,i'm not talking about dealing with trolls /bullies online(that's different). I;m talking about ...out here in the real world),They are able assess all evidence presented and come to an honest verdict. Unlike some men who more than likely will relate to that thug mentality exhibited by Trayvon.

Take note, I said "some men".

Some of you point to the jury's being all woman and harmful to T.M., . What an ignorant accusation , it was the evidence that determined the outcome. That accusation simply mirrors your racist views.

Are you fkn kidding me?
I was selected for jury duty.... the best people are chosen. I was asked many /many questions. it does not matter whether you are a man or woman, your economical status,religion,nationality, nor color of your skin.... it's all according to the answer you give to their(judge/attorneys) questions.

well, obviously they know enough to NOT BE FOOLED in to thinking a poor little innocent boy on his way to the store to buy some skittles did nothing wrong. They knew enough to realize that a person was getting his head bashed on the sidewalk and knew if he didn't do something he would be the one dead.
