I wasn’t going to weigh in on this, but…
There’s already more than enough people reporting on the Zimmerman verdict, but when I was reading about the outspoken Juror B37’s interview with Anderson Cooper, this section in particular caught my eye:
These two statements directly contradict one another. Going overboard, by definition, means doing far more than necessary. You can’t go beyond necessity and still be “justified.” A justified response is one that is proportional to its stimulus. If you’re below or beyond that equilibrium, you fall outside of that quality.
So, Juror B37, which is it? Was Zimmerman overboard, or justified? You can’t have it both ways.
