If things are this awkward in public, it must have been even more awful in the deliberations. Four Zimmerman jurors (there were only six in total) said in a statement released on Tuesday that the comments made by B37 were “not in any way representative of the jurors listed below.” The jurors asked the media to respect their privacy as well. But that hasn’t stopped B37 from talking more. She said on Tuesday that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin “played a huge role” in his own death. “When George confronted him … he could have walked away and gone home,” said B37 on Anderson Cooper 360. “He didn’t have to do whatever he did and come back and be in a fight.” The jury of six women on Saturday found Zimmerman, 29, not guilty of all charges in Martin’s February 2012 death.
Zimmerman shot Martin to death in February 2012 in a gated neighborhood in Sanford. Martin, who was visiting his father and his father's fiancee, had gone to a convenience store to get candy and an iced tea. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, spotted him and called police to report a suspicious person. Eventually, Zimmerman got out of his vehicle, a confrontation ensued, and Martin wound up dead.
