I really tried to stay out of this. I was trying to just leave it at a few tweets but last night’s episode of Anderson Cooper 360 that featured one of the jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman, Juror B37, was so outrageous I just had to say something because my tweets weren’t getting it done.
Now this video ended up being an entire commercial free show so allow me to note the time code points of note for you to view first….then from there watch the complete video at your leisure.
