Juror speaks out on Trayvon Martin shooting: Zimmerman "got away with murder"

George Zimmerman juror B29 tells ABC that the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin "got away with murder".

The only minority juror on the all-female panel voted to acquit Zimmerman is now speaking out.

The juror, who used only her first name of Maddy out of concerns for her safety, told ABC that she and others on the panel felt Zimmerman was guilty, but that wasn't enough.

Zimmerman juror to ABC: He 'got away with murder'

"You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty," she said. "But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence."

How does the Martin family feel about this news? And did George Zimmerman's team worry this one juror could put their client away?

    Well, no crap lady, you did your job. The state didn't prove their case, so you had to acquit. Your feelings are completely irrelevant.
