Zimmerman Trial Juror B37 Tells AC360 She Believes Trayvon Martin Threw First Punch

Zimmerman trial juror B 37 tells Anderson Cooper on CNN’s AC360 that she believes Trayvon Martin threw the first punch in the fight that led to his death. She also said she found Rachel Jeantel not credible. It’s interesting that from the start, she had her mind made up that George Zimmerman was not guilty, despite having trouble understanding the judge’s instructions.

Juror B37 also said three were for not guilty, two for manslaughter and one for second degree murder, but they all came around to not guilty by the end of their deliberations.

Juror B37, who has a book deal in the works,  said she’s not worried about George ‪‎Zimmerman‬ getting his gun back, saying, “I think he would be more responsible than anybody else on the planet right now.” She did concede that George Zimmerman had good intentions but went too far and that she should not have gotten out of his car.

Personally, I wasn’t thrilled with her interview from the standpoint of how she reached her decision that George Zimmerman was not guilty. She was pro-defense from the start and had referred to Trayvon Martin as a ‘boy of color.’ She claims she won’t be giving any more interviews and that she won’t keep the proceeds from the book she and her attorney husband are writing.
