“George Zimmerman got away with murder,” Maddy, who declined to give her last name, said in an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America,” “but you can’t get away from God. And at the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with.”
Oh, well, that’s cool, then.
Seriously, though, a few things:
1. Zimmerman didn’t get away with murder; he was found not guilty of murder … by you. This means he was judged not to have murdered Trayvon Martin. He did, of course, kill him. So, really, he got away with killing him.
2. This juror is right about one thing:
"As much as we were trying to find this man guilty … they give you a booklet that basically tells you the truth, and the truth is that there was nothing that we could do about it," she said. "I feel the verdict was already told."
Given the laws in Florida, Zimmerman could shoot another kid to death tomorrow and be found not guilty all over again … so long as he felt that, when he opened fire, his life was in danger (while he was carrying a gun and stalking the kid).
3. God isn’t going to sort this out. See #2, above, and then work on changing the laws.
