Who are the members of the Zimmerman jury?

In the racially-charged trial of George Zimmerman for the second degree murder of 17-year-old “child” Trayvon Martin — that’s what prosecutor Assistant State Attorney John Guy called the 5′ 11″ punk (Zimmerman is 5′ 7″) — defense and prosecution have both rested their respective cases.

Zimmerman’s fate is now in the hands of the six-member jury.

Zimmerman juryThose six were drawn from the final 40 potential jurors — 24 of whom were women, 16 were men; 27 were white, 7 were black, 3 were of mixed race, and 3 were Hispanic.

This is what we know about the Zimmerman jury:

  • All six are female.
  • 5 of the 6 are married.
  • 5 of the 6 are “white.”
  • “Almost all” (according to CNN) have children.
  • Juror E-6 is blonde; has two children (ages 11 and 13); is married to an engineer; and is a “church member.”
  • Juror B-29 is Black (CNN) or Hispanic (Fox News); married for 10 years; has 8 children, 7 of whom are minors (younger than 18); and is originally from Chicago. She is the only racial “minority” on the jury.
  • Juror B-76 is married; unemployed, but used to run a construction company with her husband; loves animals; and has a son who’s an attorney.
  • Juror B-37 is the daughter of an Air Force captain; has two children — one a pet groomer, the other attends the University of Central Florida.
  • Juror E-40 is married to a chemical engineer; has one son; and likes to watch football, read, and travel.
  • Juror B-51 is the only unmarried member of this jury; a retired real estate agent who had moved to Florida from Atlanta.

Attorney and Fox News legal analyst Tamara Holder has already faulted the jury composition: “This case should not be about race, but the attorneys’ failure to pick a more diverse group of six people is certain to reignite the issue, especially if the 100 percent all-female/non-African-American jury finds Mr. Zimmerman not guilty.”

When asked about the lack of Black jurors, George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, responded: “The state struck the first Black juror and then we got our six…. I had questions about two Black jurors on their ability to be fair and impartial and we talked about that. That’s been I think now put on the record when it comes to my thoughts and the judge agreed that they were race neutral reasons. So while people can look at it and have this reaction: there’s no Blacks on the jury, there’s no this, or there’s no that, tell me we did something wrong in the [jury selection] process and I’ll agree with you. If you look at this process and I’ll agree with you if you look at the process and say it was done fairly than the result was fair.”

Meanwhile, it is now said that even if the jury acquits George Zimmerman, his troubles aren’t over. The Obama regime might still prosecute him in federal court for “violating” Martin’s “civil rights.” For more about this nightmarish possibility, go here. (H/t FOTM’s joworth)

  1. Can you just imagine the double whammy if a jury of mostly white acquits him? But this time they will be burning white neighborhoods. Black Panthers have vowed that, and I would nto put it past those scum. This would be jsut the excuse that they want to rampantly kill “crackahs and they crackah babies”. (Shabazz’s, words not mine) Some of us just might HAVE to stand our ground. God Forbid. Btu let the jury do what is right and not be influenced by the threats.

  2. I work an extra job that I was hoping to turn into full-time in a very black area of Metro Atlanta. I was scared yesterday, afraid they might read the verdict and then there would be riots. I am sick for Zimmerman because I don’t want him going to prison when he is clearly innocent, but also am sick for our safety. I am so disgusted at the double standards regarding races.

    • Julia, I hope you carry mace or a can of wasp spray for self-protection!

      • Good advice, Dr. Eowyn.

        Julia, you’ll be okay. The verdict will likely be given on a weekday morning, and law enforcement around the country are prepared. Anyone who’s been following the case is prepared for an acquittal. I have a hunch the riot threats are more bark than bite.

        There is the possibility that elements of our gov WANT a riot, and that’s a whole different story. But I think even the average leftist already knows the prosecution’s case is lost. The agitators and racists can rant all they want, but they likely won’t have the masses behind them.

    • Julia, carry something for protection. And most important, be aware of your surroundings. Be safe!

  3. Uh-oh! As I type this, the jury has reached a verdict! So maybe we’ll get the answer tonight, which would be totally stupid, because if there are riots, this will give them the cover of darkness. Only an idiot judge would release this verdict now at night!

  4. NOT GUILTY!!

  5. Thanks for that detailed jury info. I was wondering more about those ladies & THEIR safety after the verdict. God bless them for their good sense in their verdict!

    Back on 7/2/13, author James Perloff (“The Shadows of Power”), in his guest article at Henry Makow’s site, stated that he believes “show trials” (regular jury trials that are blown all out of proportion in the media) are done so for the purpose of destroying confidence in the jury system so that that the “right to trial by jury” can be removed along with the “right to bear arms,” etc., which was an angle of “social brainwashing” I had not thought about before.

    He wrote: “If I had to guess, and I certainly may be wrong, the jury is going to find George Zimmerman innocent.  And the media will then cry: “Once again, the jury system has failed!”  This time it will be the Afro-American community’s turn to get angry at juries.”

    He concluded with, “…the best way to make people give up their rights is to make them think their rights are dangerous.”

    Truer words were never spoken! That is exactly the deceptive maneuvering that is being poured out like a flood on the population at large!

    • Update: At approx. 2:25am EDT 7/14/13, this headline appeared in Google News listings, which pretty much goes along w/what Perloff predicted:

      “‘System has failed': Crowds react to Zimmerman verdict”:
      http://usatoday.com/article/news/2514307

      In it USA Today quotes a guy who stood all day with a sign waiting for the verdict. After the verdict he had good sense to fold up his sign & go home but said, “THE SYSTEM has FAILED US AGAIN, as young black males…”

  6. Give one finger to the monster of political correctness, and it will bite off the entire hand, returning for the head later. Whack the vile beast and it will crawl away. That’s a damn good lesson for those who tried to abuse the right of free speech and besmear the Justice!

  7. Too bad these ladies weren’t on the O.J. jury in L.A.
