Juror B in the Zimmerman Trial

Juror B in the Zimmerman trial came out and said her heart said something different than the law and the verdict. Really? A standard charge in almost any criminal trial by a judge is: “As jurors you are solely judges of the facts. You must accept the Law as I hand it down to you.” Really? The jurors could have found Zimmerman guilty based on the facts. Even accepting sometimes the illogic of the Law, Jurors with courage have used jury nullification to do the right thing, despite the Law. Really.
