Zimmerman juror B29, also known as “Maddy”, appeared on Politics Nation with Al Sharpton on Tuesday to discuss her feelings on George Zimmerman’s recent domestic violence incident involving his estranged wife and father-in-law.
After Sharpton played a clip of Zimmerman being put in handcuffs, Maddy said “it hurts a lot”, referencing her feelings about the verdict. She says she’s always wondering “what could I have done” to change the end result.
Maddy also said she doesn’t see how it benefits anyone to continue rehashing what happened.
“I can’t continue to give George Zimmerman all that power, where he continues and everybody keeps talking about him,” she said. “Let’s talk about what we could do to change to make a difference, to do something. Because that’s what I want to do.”
Maddy said she is not looking for her 15 minutes of fame and that “this is not something you want to be famous about.”
“I’ve always said George Zimmerman, basically George Zimmerman is a murderer,” she said, but “the only person that’s going to deal with it is God.”
According to Maddy, the video does show that Zimmerman has a temper.
“As you see his anger, which [his wife] Shellie was expressing that he had anger problems, it’s showing right now. And all we could do is let him fall on his own.”
Police say video shows Zimmerman smashing his wife’s iPad as she was recording the incident. Shellie Zimmerman called police after accusing her estranged husband of hitting her father and threatening her.
