    Isn't it a conflict of interest to shop a book hours after the trial is over?

    PRO verdict or Against it.. it my opinion the first amendment does not guarantee you the right to make cash from jury duty


    then came twitter

    then


    for now

    The 1st Amendment didn't guarantee her the right to make cash from jury duty. Public interest did.

    She owns her story and has a right to tell it and capitalize off of it. If people find that it's in bad taste then they can protest by not buying it. I really don't see the conflict of interest here. It wasn't like she snuck onto the jury so she could make a buck.

    The morons who aren't intellectually sharp enough to see the facts of this case are acting like toddlers.

    We reprimand our kids for being immature and catty and cliquey and petty. But about 1/4 of our nation is doing exactly that right now. They are doggedly going after anyone and everyone associated with this situation.

    -Angela Corey going after Zimm's wife for prejury. I wonder how doggedly she will go after the prosecutors for discovery violations?
    -Holder talking about how dismayed the feds are. Really? You are dismayed in your justice system?
    -Sharpton, the NAACP and other race baiters wanting a do-over at the Federal level with hate crimes charges
    -The average dope lashing out at the jury... a HUGE no-no in this country

    Millions of adults acting no better than spoiled kids. What a disgrace.

    You have NFL players tweeting that she should kill herself and countless people assuming that she must be a racist, but she can't give her side of the story?

    Or is she supposed to go on TV and tell her side of the story on some news network or talk show? For free? So somebody like Oprah, Dr. Phil or Nancy Grace can capitalize on her account?

    i don't think ANYONE who serves on ANY murder trial should have the right to sell a story.. NO ONE

    it seems like its a conflict of interest

    that's MHO

    How does the wife of a lawyer not hear about the Zimmerman case beforehand and end up on the jury to boot? IDGI. :dontknow:

    the prosecution probably had a lot to do with that. try to pick women because women are supposed to use more emotion in judgement. that's all the prosecution had, try to choose the right jury.

    The idea that she would even entertain making a book seems iffy to me ...

    A person's life was on the line.. don't tell me hours after the trial was over that you are now trying to cash in ....

    and don't tell me that rushing a book wouldn't come into play when voting on a verdict

    and that change of heart didn't come on her own. it was only after the publisher got flooded with emails that the idea was dropped

    The juror was on Anderson cooper last night. She's very anti-Trayvon and pro-Zimmerman.
