(Newser) – George Zimmerman's six-person jury is finally in place, and two things stand out: All six are women, and none of them are black. Five of the jurors are white, and one is Hispanic, reports the Orlando Sentinel. It says all but one are middle-aged or older. Alternates are still being picked. The trial into whether Zimmerman was justified in fatally shooting Trayvon Martin is expected to take up to a month, and jurors will be sequestered the entire time.

Zimmerman was not hired as an enforcer. He overstepped his authority. He was told by the police to stay away. He got out of his car and picked a fight with a teen who was tired of Zimmerman dogging his tracks Then he shot and killed an unarmed teenager who was only standing up for himself and his right to be there. Zimmerman is a stupid jerk who killed an innocent kid who was walking home not bothering anybody. Until Zimmerman's imagination took over. What about Martin's right to defend himself from a menacing adult who's following him around the neighborhood and then gets out of his car and comes after him. Do you really think that Zimmerman had a right to pick a fight and then kill Martin? Self defense my ass!

Of the three out of six women they chose for the jury, one said there was rioting (to her, a peaceful protest in favor of Trayvon was rioting), the second one said Trayvon shouldn't have been out that late (7:15 PM is late?!?), and the third one had a conceal/carry permit at one time. The prosecution wanted them disqualified, but the judge allowed them to be put through as jurors. So all of you that are so worried Georgie isn't going to get a fair trial, you may not have to worry any longer. It will be Trayvon not getting the fair trial with jurors like these.
