Juror speaks after Zimmerman case

One of the jurors who freed American George Zimmerman of the murder of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin, says she had no doubt he feared for his life in the final moments of their struggle.



The juror told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that was the definitive factor in the verdict.



The woman, who was only identified as Juror B37, is the first juror to speak publicly about the case.



She said she believes Zimmerman's heart was in the right place the night he shot Martin.



However, the juror says Zimmerman did not use good judgment in confronting the Florida teen.



According to her, the spate of vandalism in the Sanford neighbourhoods and Zimmerman’s desire to catch the perpetrators went above and beyond what he really should have done.
