Zimmerman Trial Juror Says He "Got Away With Murder" But Still Voted "Not Guilty"

So Juror B29 from the Zimmerman trial told ABC News yesterday that Zimmerman "got away with murder", that she "fought to the end". "I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury". And yet she still opted for a "not guilty" verdict. It probably was not an easy choice for her, but what exactly is "to the end" then? Would she have fought harder if Trayvon Martin were her own child?
Let us know what you think.

Jurors are giving very specific definitions of charges, and very specific instructions about how to determine if a charge fits.  I once served on a jury and convicted a man that I personally didn't even understand why his case made it to a court at all.  But given that he was in court, and given all that we were instructed, I had to give my Guilty vote.  Our legal system is complicated.
