We have more this morning from Anderson Cooper's exclusive interview with Juror B37 on AC360.
The interview is proving controversial as four other jurors have now issued a statement, saying, "The opinions of Juror B37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own,” and not in any way representative of their views.
They add that serving on the jury was a draining experience, saying, “The death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do."
Juror B37 tells Anderson Cooper emotions were high in the jury room as the six women deliberated.

This story is heart breaking and I feels so sad for Trayvons parents family and friends. My biggest question is for the people that heard the cries for hep , why why why didn't they shout out stop this or walk out and yell back to stop. Maybe if the two of them heard someone else who ever was the aggressor the whole incident just might have stopped. Why is it that no one wanted to help? Is this what America has come to where we are afraid or unwilling to help someone in need?
That the jury was indeed racially biased is made clear by similar cases in florida where there is a reversal of roles:
The jurors had it all wrong, as if they live in a bubble unaware of what's really going on in this country. You can hear the ignorance in B-37"s voice. It's sad.
