The reaction of so many to Zimmerman verdict causes juror to drop plans to write book about jury deliberations

The anger of the jury decision is because people have such a distorted view of the evidence.  It is not surprising, but it is disappointing that a jury member could could be so intimidated into not writing a book because so many people don't understand the evidence that the jury saw.  From Reuters:
The juror had planned to write the book with her husband, who is an attorney, explaining how the jury had "no option" but to find Zimmerman not guilty, but she subsequently decided not to proceed with publication, Martin added later.
The juror did not spell out the reasons for her change of heart but said her isolation in the jury room meant she had not been fully aware of the outrage over the case.
"The potential book was always intended to be a respectful observation of the trial from my and my husband's perspectives solely and it was to be an observation that our 'system' of justice can get so complicated that it creates a conflict with our 'spirit' of justice," she said in the written statement.
"Now that I am returned to my family and to society in general, I have realized that the best direction for me to go is away from writing any sort of book and return instead to my life as it was before I was called to sit on this jury," she added. . . .

The Left continues to spread lies that cause this type of hatefull reaction, yet the truth does exist.

For example, I did discover an AP Wire story by Mike Schneider titled; 4 jurors distance themselves from Juror B37

Here's an excerpt from that story that sums up what those whom profit from lies wish to bury...

Juror B37 said a block of concrete that defense attorney Mark O'Mara placed in front of jurors during closing arguments made an impression, as did photos of Zimmerman's bloodied head. She also believed Martin's actions contributed to his death.

"I think George got in a little bit too deep, which he shouldn't have been there, but Trayvon decided that he wasn't going to let him scare him and get the one-over, up on him or something," she said. "I think Trayvon got mad and attacked him. "

By not walking away from the confrontation, the juror said of Martin, "I believe he played a huge role in his death."

The above obviously does not play into the 'Trayvon was a victim' rhetoric that the Left is portraying.
