(National Report) – The opening statements in the trial of a neighborhood watch captain that shot down a youth hopped up on candy and sugar laced iced tea begins in Florida next week. Some feel justice could be compromised by the all white female jury.
Legal analysts are contemplating the impact of menstruation on the trial ruling, since groups of women will often synchronize their periods so salty snacks and chocolate purchases can be made in bulk. Woman are natural hunter / gatherers with genetic dispositions for thrift and group resource planning.
Could the extra X chromosome make a mistrial a possibility?
Carmon G. Hoff, senior vior dire expert for the Law firm of Henry, James and Hoff, LLC of Panama City, Florida says in this case it could.
“Selection of an all white female jury was a good move on the part of defense, since women are naturally sympathetic, but could backfire if the ladies are all on their period at the same time.
Sympathy for the victim could be an issue if these ladies are experiencing pre, post or synchronized menstrual cravings. Trayvon was known to be carrying candy, and while that candy was not chocolate or particularly salty, by association it could trigger a subconscious defense in the minds of the jury by painting the accused as taking that candy away.
If any of the women are ovulating, that is not menstruating, they could decide in a split decision as women will spar and fight each other in the wild for premium mates. Mr. Zimmerman is quite handsome, so a hung jury is possible.”
While some argue Zimmerman’s 140 pound weight gain makes the idea of the six woman jury fighting over his DNA questionable, the possibility of synchronized menstruation looms heavy over the courtroom. Weigh in with your opinion in the Poll below.
