Juror B37 was ready to profit from the murder of Trayvon Martin, but one motivated Sistah on social media had something to say about that. Less than 48 hours after helping wanna-be cop George Zimmerman get away with murder, the juror inked a book deal. Well, Twitter user MoreAndAgain found the Twitter handle of the agent who helped to make the deal happen.
Obviously, the Twitter campaign worked.
And Juror 37B had this to say:
“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 a 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.”
MoreAndMore’s social media protest is a prime example of modern-day economic boycotting. Great job, Sistah!
I went from feeling incredibly helpless about Zimmerman's verdict, to being overwhelmed with joy. Thank you all for your signatures and RT's—
