    Juror: Zimmerman's heart in right place
    The juror spoke to CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" on Monday night. Her identity was concealed.
    "I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done. But I think his heart was in the right place. It just went terribly wrong," she said.

    B37 and her attorney husband have signed with a literary agent to negotiate a book deal. Is she an opportunist who wanted to be on the jury hoping to capitalize on her experience?

    Apparently, this juror isn't doing this for free.

    She was NOT paid. This is a powerful interview that explains the inner process of this jury. Please don't denigrate this juror without listening to the entire interview. It is on youtube also by Moxnews. Any book proceeds will go to charity.
    You owe it to yourself to watch, if you have interest in this case. Very explanatory of the complexity.

    Interestingly, on CNN Headline New's program, the libbie panelists were hammering this woman accusing her of being an elitist among other things. They (libbie media types) can't handle the truth...it was a bad case that should not have been filed. The prosecution witnesses were not credible or in the case of the police officer, assisted Zimmerman.

    "book proceeds will go to charity." Have not seen this reported. Do you have a link to confirm?

    Thanks.

    When I read yesterday she was planning a book my first thought was that she was looking to profit from the tragedy. I think she chose the wiser course in dropping plans for the book. If she had followed through with her earlier plan her motives would always be questionable.

    Her interview is VERY telling of the seriousness with which the jury deliberated and came to decision. EXTREMELY impressive.

    I guess TM really was bashing GZ's head on the concrete after all.

    As in an aggravated battery.

    During the fray about the one, many were killed and no one noticed.

    She seems like one of the weirdos you only come across when you go to the courthouse for jury duty.
