Not guilty and completely innocent.
Because our guys future without the doctor and -- it.
Sure it is and.
Well in just fifteen minutes from now that jury is set to restart their deliberations so how will they jurors backgrounds.
And the complex choices they face affect the verdict joining us now is Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior -- doing great to see you because you know a little bit about each juror.
From the -- -- your process so let's talk let's talk about who.
New England the jurors are -- to begin with there's six women on the jury five or white and one Hispanic or black -- the jurors I have had kids.
And this is a jury.
In accounting which 90%.
Of the jury -- is white.
Number juror number one.
A white female in the sixties.
A safety off that's interesting and the -- officer because that's what you could argue jurors aren't was acting as as a neighborhood watch maybe that's juror who would be inclined to be for George Zimmerman.
Then juror number 200.
Who might be persuaded deliberation a white few million married.
Use this case to warn kids to be careful.
At night whatever that means then juror number three number your 29.

Female the nurse.
With eight children eight children that it at a -- if it if you believe that people vote.
Based upon their racial preferences there racial interest.
Perhaps she has an interest.
Against Georgia -- and unknown -- unknown but unfortunately we keep on talking about white and black and Hispanic and that's how we did nominate these jurors.
Juror B 51.
Potentially a leader a white woman not married no children.
And ran -- Kohl Center supervising 12100 employees or that tell us twelve shows that -- A strong leader potentially someone that is willing to make decisions someone is able to lead.
A pack of people.
The next juror a white woman married would shoot children.
Had a concealed weapon permit no longer has it.
Let it expire understands handguns potentially understands long arms understands training in terms of weapons and understands the need to have.
A weapon for self defense the next juror a white woman he married with two children.
And rescues animals and it's interesting there's a whole -- a theme that goes through a lot of these jurors they love.
Pets so it's a -- and all woman jury of mostly white.
Jury they're gonna bring their experiences and background they've been told to put their prejudice and bias.
Out of your mind in coming to a conclusion in this case -- I don't know how you lawyers ever seat a jury and figure out who would you be sympathetic to your side you can eat you tried to but the evidence is the most important part of this case.
And in terms the evidence in the law it's really important to understand.
And it's important in terms of what O'Meara did.
Yes today let's look at one of the points that he made he said not only -- is is that client be found not guilty.
He should be declared absolutely innocent.
That's what he would have said on the show -- Showing that the -- had.
Not guilty and completely innocent.
As our guys who checked into -- -- -- in the field.
-- it is and.
He's basing that on his belief that this is self defense a clear cut case of click -- Qaeda cases self defense and what he did is he showed its chart.
Before the jury that showed all the different possibilities.
By which his client should be acquitted.
On the self defense the justifiable use of the deadly weapon to repel trade on Martin his point and it's an important point.
Under Florida law and it's been -- time and time again.
Even if there's a mere possibility.
A mere possibility.
The George Zimmerman engaged in self defense to repel trade on Maarten he should be equated as a matter.
Of -- I don't remember that in the jury instructions I don't ever being that clear cut dangerous -- you are always brilliant and I always tell you that it's not.
But it's part of the shifting the burden in the state.
Of Florida -- a burden on the prosecution.
To prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
The judges decided that there is a plausible and -- factually based self defense basis.
On the basis of that all the defense needs to shell is a mere possibility.
That he engaged in his self defensive maneuver to save his life and on that basis under Florida law he should be acquitted in the Alfredsson eleven minutes you think that they're gonna come out of the decision.
I don't I'd.
It might be today I think it is taking their time a -- got it could cast -- we'll watch that the Washington analysis.
