Maddy, Juror B29 – You Were Played By Sovereign Citizens

Maddy, also known as Juror B29

Maddy, also known as Juror B29

Early on when I first began blogging, and after hearing Frank Taaffe defend George Zimmerman, I brought up the influence of sovereign citizenship ideology in Taaffe’s defense of Zimmerman’s actions.  According to Francis (Frank) Taaffe, Zimmerman was frustrated by crime in his community and road out like Night Riders to capture Blacks walking free in that community. (As a side note, the Night Riders of the KKK have a National Office in Live Oaks, FL, and a branch office in Fort Myers, FL.)  Soon, other Zimmerman supporters picked up the mantra and it extended to Zimmerman’s defense team during his trial.

Zimmerman’s frustration was to gain support of White Supremacists who stereotype all young Black males as hoodlums.  If Zimmerman was not arrested it would give sovereign citizens the right formula to commit murder and walk free.

With Juror B37’s literary agent revealing that the jury found Zimmerman not guilty due to the manner in which Zimmerman was charged, it reasonably conveys that Juror B37 believes that Zimmerman is not subject to the law.  That clearly conveys sovereign citizen ideology.

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that “sovereign citizens” “believe that they — not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials — get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore.”  Based on statements made by Jurors B37 and B29 in the George Zimmerman case, how they reached their decision by blaming it on there being no law to convict, is classic sovereign citizenship, twisted logic.

The foundational logic behind sovereign citizen ideology is that descendants of slaves and foreigners became U.S. citizens because of the 13th and 14th Amendments, or “statutory citizens” unlike sovereigns whose citizenship is established by the Declaration of Independence.    Based on comments made by Maddy, also known as Juror B29, the other jurors made her submissive to them, beginning with that age-old theory that 14th amendment citizens are slaves for sovereign citizens and not intelligent enough to understand anything and must be told what to think.   Maddy was played by the cultist persuasion and White Supremacy beliefs of sovereign citizens.

Most sovereign citizens whose beliefs are not originally rooted in White Supremacy are people who have found themselves in a desperate situation, often due to unemployment, underemployment, foreclosures, unpaid taxes, etc.  Frank Taaffe and George Zimmerman are ideal people to embrace sovereign citizen ideology.   Taaffe has been litigating a foreclosure case for years. The federal bureau of investigation reports that some sovereign citizens impersonate law enforcement officers.  George Zimmerman wanted to be a cop.  Giving Zimmerman undeputized authority to kill under the color of law enforcement gives all citizens the same right.

The FBI says there are thousands of Sovereign Citizens in the state of Florida. Some simply look to make money off citizens they recruit into the movement; others use system-slowing filings on things like mortgages to drag out the foreclosure process.  There is an active group in Florida whose leader operates out of Clearwater.

Policemag.com reports;

“Sovereign citizen” is a broad, general term that is often applied to any individual person or group that does not believe that the laws of the United States or the state laws apply to them. In other words, they are beyond the jurisdiction of law enforcement authority. The term “sovereign citizen” should be viewed as an umbrella under which you will find thousands of loosely organized groups or individuals that share one basic ideological principle but approach it through different paths.”

As Johnny Liberty, a sovereign citizen out of Oregon stated in 1995, his goal is to teach others how to reclaim their rights and defend those rights once they have reclaimed them.  Manipulating a jury to decide that there is no law to find a murderer guilty of murder, is one way of reclaiming the rights of sovereign citizens.  Due to that jury’s decision, we can bet that sovereign citizens will rely on it in the future to argue that the state lacks jurisdiction to charge them with committing a crime.  I can hear their argument now – “The law is not written to convict.”

The logic and theories of sovereign citizens is just as twisted as the excuses we have heard from Jurors B37 and B29.  It is likened to saying that they were asked to drive a car from one point to another.  During the course of their trip, they became lost.  Rather than asking for directions, they wrecked the car.  Their justification?  None of them could read and understand the map.

In 1999, the National Center for State Courts published “The Anti-Government Movement Guidebook” to help judges identify sovereign citizens in their courtrooms via the methods they use, including filibustering, lack of jurisdiction and common law arguments.

Although law enforcement and judges are aware of sovereign citizens when law enforcement or the courts are involved, they seldom recognize the ideologies elsewhere.  Not all sovereign citizens recruit through online websites.  They infiltrate churches.  They regularly visit public libraries and courthouses to engage others in conversations and once getting their attention, deflect the conversation to their ideologies.  It appears that they also infiltrate neighborhood watch groups.

Although sovereigns believe they are superior to Blacks and other minorities, they are not opposed to using them to accomplish their goals of challenging laws.  Used as sacrificial guinea pigs, they are encouraged to raise challenges in the courts.  For instance, actor Wesley Snipes was duped into using sovereign citizenship tax arguments.  He ended up sentenced to prison for tax evasion.  Had he been successful in the argument of sovereigns that federal taxes are unconstitutional, sovereigns would have taken advantage of that “win.”  If not, then it was just another Negro who was Negro rich going to prison.

Sovereign citizens also engage people in positions of authority or influence in hope that they will promote and practice their agenda.  Tampa Bay news reports that in 2011, Tom Laughlin, a detective with the Sarasota police department, was convinced by his brother to file papers declaring himself sovereign and immune from the laws of the State of Florida and the United States.   He was subsequently terminated from his job.

Tom Laughlin’s defense applies to the Zimmerman jury.  His defense was, “I’m ignorant. I’m stupid.”

Juror B29 plainly stated that Zimmerman committed murder, but she relies on the way the law was read to her to decide that there was no law in which to convict Zimmerman.  That is classic sovereign citizenship ideology.   Who on the jury convinced her that there is no law that convicts an initial aggressor who kills another from being convicted of murder or manslaughter?  Who on the jury practiced law by interpreting the law to other jurors?

What sovereign citizens accomplished by the Zimmerman verdict is to give sovereign citizens the right to murder 14th amendment citizens without answering to the law. The Department of Justice would do well to investigate each member of the Zimmerman jury in effort to find who used sovereign citizen persuasion tactics to convince at least 3 other jurors that there is no law setting forth that murder is a crime.  You see, the jury’s verdict in the Zimmerman case is not about Zimmerman.  Rather, it’s about rebelling against the government and furthering sovereign citizen agendas.

    I think a huge problem, too, and one that made it easier for Juror B29 to be swayed, was that the judge’s instructions and response to the question about manslaughter were confusing. I read it twice and still wasn’t sure exactly what she was explaining. She never said what manslaughter was, just what it wasn’t.

    It would be like a student, when faced with a page of math problems, trying to decide whether or not it includes algebra. She asks the teacher for clarification about what algebra is. The teacher says, “It’s not the math of shapes; that would be geometry. It’s not the math of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; that would be arithmetic.”

    So the student looks at the page and sees, for example, the Pythagorean theorem, a2 + b2 = c2. But because it involves a triangle, the student concludes, “Well, that can’t be algebra, because shapes means geometry.” And she sees a problem such as x2 + 2xy + 12, and concludes that because it involves addition, that can’t be algebra either. The problem is that the teacher never defined algebra at all, and made things more confusing rather than clearer.

  4. Why Zimmerman Juror B29 Believed in His Guilt But Still Voted to Acquit

    http://baystatebanner.com/news/2013/jul/31/why-zimmerman-juror-b29-believed-his-guilt-still-v/

    The lone Latina juror in the George Zimmerman murder trial flatly said that she thought Zimmerman was guilty.

    Yet juror B29 still voted to acquit. She gave out mixed signals as to why she did. The first reason was that the evidence wasn’t there. But she also quickly added that she held out for a few hours trying to hang the jury presumably because she felt the evidence really wasn’t there for a clean acquittal.

    This second signal is far more revealing as to why a juror that believes one thing, in this case that Zimmerman is guilty, but still went along with the majority, the white jurors, and voted to acquit him. The key to understanding why she did can be summed up in two words: juror pressure. This is far different from juror intimidation. That’s a crime and is severely punished.

    Juror pressure is far more subtle and amorphous but poses an even bigger challenge to getting a just and fair verdict in a trial than outright intimidation, which can be documented in only a tiny number of cases.

    The problem of juror pressure on a dissenting juror has long been known by defense attorneys and prosecutors. In a study as part of the National Center for State Courts project on hung juries, researchers conducted post-trial surveys that covered 367 trials, all of which resulted in unanimous decisions, and surveyed nearly 4,000 jurors in several states. They found that in nearly 40 percent of the cases there was at least one juror who thought that the defendant was either innocent or guilty but still went along with the majority and made the jury verdict unanimous.

    The researchers went further and tossed in cases where the jurors were faced with multiple charges against a defendant. The number of juries with jurors who wanted to convict or acquit on one or more of the charges, particularly the lesser charge, leapt to more than half of the juries that brought back unanimous verdicts on all counts. And since studies have shown that few trials wind up with hung juries, the disturbing conclusion is that there are a lot of jurors that simply cave to the majority in a lot of trials.

    The Zimmerman trial then was no aberration and fit the pattern in which a juror that truly believed that he was guilty but could go along with the pack anyway. Her rationale that the evidence wasn’t there doesn’t square with research that shows that dissenting jurors often go along with the majority not because they are convinced about points of evidence but because they bow to what’s been called “normative pressure.”

    Put simply that means that a juror who stands as the lone holdout is under relentless and harsh pressure from other jurors to knuckle under. The pressure from the push for speed, verbal battering and the threat of social ostracism is virtually impossible to resist.

    The problem is made worse by the notion in many trials that it’s virtually impossible for a dissenting juror to say with absolute certainty whether the position of the majority for the guilt or innocence of the defendant is the right one, and whether the verdict would do horrible legal damage or be an unpardonable injustice.

    Maddy was doing a classic CYA. She tried to appease the black community by saying she believed GZ murdered TM. She then tries to appease the white community by saying she had follow the law “as it was read to her.” At the same time, she’s hoping the black community will understand she had no choice. She distances herself from that verdict as much as she can. The problem is that if she truly in her heart of hearts felt he was guilty, she would have hung that jury and championed a manslaughter charge as if her life depended on it. And the only reason I suspect she showed herself to the public was as a preemptive measure. At some point someone would have connected the dots and identified her. If she didn’t say her piece now, she might not have gotten a chance later and hope it to sound credible.

      I agree, kansaschik. There would have been no way I could have been on that jury, thought Zimmerman was guilty, and gone along with the other jurors and voted to find him not guilty.

She caved to the other jurors who were probably focused more on going home to their families than they were on holding Zimmerman accountable for killing an unarmed teenager, and besides, the death of another black teen didn’t affect their lives one way or another.

  11. A racial divide lingers after the Zimmerman verdict.

    http://wapo.st/14bCyp7

    In two Americas, one white, the other black, Dave Muth and Angelo Henderson have entirely different views on a Florida jury’s verdict that found George Zimmerman not guilty in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

    Their deep racial divide is in lock step with public opinion polls released during the past week showing that African Americans overwhelmingly disagreed with the verdict, compared with a narrow majority of white Americans who agreed with it.

    One poll also showed a stark difference of opinion in the role of race in the case, which exploded into the public consciousness last year when Zimmerman, then a 27-year-old armed neighborhood watch volunteer for his gated community, confronted and killed Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old who was walking back to the home of a family friend after a trip to the store.

    Zimmerman’s acquittal of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges by a jury of six women was accepted by Muth, who is white, and rejected by Henderson, who is black, reflecting a wider racial rift.

    Even the jurors were split in their views of whether justice was served. On Thursday, the lone minority on the panel, a Puerto Rican woman, said in a television interview that Zimmerman “got away with murder,” but based on Florida law she had no choice but to vote for his acquittal. Earlier, a white juror said in a television interview that she accepted Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense and that he was justified in shooting Martin.

    Since the verdict, Martin’s parents and activists have held rallies around the country urging the Justice Department to consider federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman and calling for reforms to gun laws such as “stand your ground” that jurors and legal experts say played a role in Zimmerman’s acquittal.

    ‘Stand your ground’ protects criminals

    Saturday, July 28, 2012 4:30am

    Florida’s “stand your ground” self-defense law should be titled the Criminals Relief Act. When the controversial law was enacted in 2005, law enforcement officials warned it would be invoked by people prone to violence and mayhem. Seven years later, it’s clear those fears have been realized. Gang members, drug dealers, domestic abusers and other criminals have walked away from killings thanks to “stand your ground,” and it’s clearer than ever that the law should be repealed. Lawmakers who suggest a tweak can fix the problems are putting politics over sound public policy and the safety of Floridians.

    The most recent analysis of more than 100 fatal “stand your ground” cases by Tampa Bay Times staff writers Kameel Stanley and Connie Humburg found that nearly 60 percent of people claiming the self-defense legal protection had been previously arrested, and one in three were accused of a violent crime. All told, 119 people who invoked “stand your ground” after killing someone had been arrested 327 times, not counting traffic violations or other minor arrests.

    This is a far cry from the scenario lawmakers envisioned when passing the most expansive self-defense law in the country at the urging of the National Rifle Association. The law expands the “castle doctrine” to give people the right to use lethal force without the duty to retreat whenever they feel at great bodily harm. The thinking was that law-abiding people should be able to defend themselves against an unprovoked assault.

    Blood sacrifice: The wages of white supremacy
    ‘So far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.’
    Last Modified: 28 Jul 2013 11:09

    The prosecution in the trial of George Zimmerman said repeatedly that the trial was not about race. Zimmerman’s defence disagreed: It was about race, they argued repeatedly, and Trayvon Martin was guilty…of being black. He caused his own death, didn’t he? That’s what Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara urged his own mother to admit on the stand. And it wasn’t just a bizarre aberration. It was the heart of Zimmerman’s defence to put Trayvon Martin on trial instead – and to do it, essentially, for the same reason that Zimmerman targeted him in the first place: because he was black.

    Of course, murder defences often try to put the victim on trial, regardless of who they are. But when they are black in America, their race inevitably plays a role – it just requires a bit more subtlety than it used to…but not a whole lot. And so we got a neighbor called to testify that a black man burgled her house. Why was that relevant? What was she doing there, testifying in a totally unrelated trial?

    A tweet from The Nation magazine explained it perfectly: “White supremacy: the idea that some black men must be killed with impunity to keep society at large safe.”

    The logic of white supremacy perfectly explained why that neighbor was allowed to testify. The logic of white supremacy perfectly explained why Trayvon Martin had to die. And the logic of white supremacy perfectly explained why Zimmerman had to get away with it.

    …………………………

    Americans talk a good deal about race and racism, but not so much about white supremacy.. One reason is that getting rid of the worst forms of old-fashioned white racism has made it easy for most white people to think racism has nothing to do with them. “I’m not a racist,” they’ll say, without even thinking about it. “I treat everyone the same.” However, research into implicit bias shows that most people have unconscious biases they know nothing about: bias doesn’t have to mean either animus, or intent.

    What’s more, field surveys have repeatedly shown that blacks are rejected far more than equally-qualified whites, whether for job interviews or apartment rentals. In one study, whites were offered jobs at about twice the rate of blacks, and whites with a prison record were treated as well as blacks with a clean record.
    Zimmerman found not guilty of killing 17 year old

    Beyond that level of discrimination, we encounter more dire impacts. Black and white drug use is virtually identical, for example, but the war on drugs is disproportionately a war on blacks, with more blacks stopped for random searches, more arrested for possession, more arrestees sent to trial, and more of those tried sent to prison.

    At every single step of the way, blacks are treated more harshly than whites. And in many states, they lose the right to vote as well – long after they’ve paid the price of years in prison and on parole.

    What’s happening in America is not just some random mish-mash of racial and post-racial attitudes. There are massive historical and structural forces at work. Individual attitudes matter, of course, but they are only one facet of a much more complicated story – a story whose scope and essence is much more readily grasped through the lens of white supremacy, a system of racial group dominance, rather than racism, which most folks conceive of primarily or entirely in terms of conscious individual attitudes.
