Maddy, Juror B29, Facing Eviction
In an interview with “Inside Edition,” Maddy, Juror B29 in the George Zimmerman trial, said that her life was ruined by the trial because she lost friends and a full-time nursing home job. She revealed that her family is close to being evicted from her four-bedroom home in Seminole County. As “Inside Edition” toured Maddy’s home, they found its practically empty, and captured the gas company delivering a disconnect notice. Her family is facing eviction from their home.
Maddy, the only minority to serve on the all-women jury, says she and her husband have been forced to sell most of their possessions. “As we sold one thing, we paid one bill, another bill came,” she said. Now, their four-bedroom home is practically empty.
Maddy regrets voting not guilty and says that George Zimmerman should be the one to blame for her problems because he killed Trayvon Martin and doesn’t believe that he did anything wrong. “We all know who’s guilty,” she said. Maddy said that she has received death threats that she would suffer the same hurt as Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.
Maddy needs to understand that isn’t a threat. Rather, due to her saying that there is no law to find Zimmerman guilty, she opened season on all males of color to be murdered without there being any law to prosecute the person who takes their life.
What has happened and is happening to Maddy follows the pattern of Zimmerman’s toxicity. It’s not because she exposed herself as a juror, but because she was manipulated by other jurors, that she now suffers. She cannot feel good about herself being manipulated by jurors who sentenced Zimmerman to lessons learned, rather than the facts and evidence presented to the jury. Where are those jurors now when Maddy needs them?
Maddy, I’m so sorry that you were played and that now you and your family are suffering.
Her interview should air tonight on Inside Edition.
