My gosh. She is a 60 year old woman apparently not in great health and a year away from retiring. FEAR. She did her civic duty and she was being persecuted by the public before she even stepped out of the courtroom. I can definitely understand that kind of reaction. I expect the trial itself was traumatizing enough that maybe she simply doesn't have the psychological fortitude to withstand the onslaught of threats, nasty remarks and signs referring to her as a murderer.
