The lone woman of color on the Florida jury that acquitted George Zimmerman is speaking out. The woman — who is only identifying herself by her first name, Maddy — made an appearance on “Good Morning America” with Robin Roberts this morning. 

“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” Maddy, who is a 36-year-old Puerto Rican, told Roberts. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

Later, Maddy added: “George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can’t get away from God. And at the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with,” Maddy said. “[But] the law couldn’t prove it.”
