Anderson Cooper Interviews Zimmerman Juror: ‘I Think He’s Guilty of Not Using Good Judgment’

Just before he went on the air tonight, CNN’s Anderson Cooper got the first interview with one of the six jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman Saturday night. The woman, in silhouette and identified by her juror number, B37, said Zimmerman was “guilty of not using good judgment… he shouldn’t have gotten out of that car.” She says all but one juror felt that screaming voice on the 911 call was George Zimmerman.

She said just as they began deliberations the six women jurors cried, then took a vote as to where they stood: “There were three not guiltys, one second-degree murder and two manslaughters,” she said. B37 was among those voting not guilty.

“It’s a tragedy this happened. But it happened,” she said through tears. “I think both were responsible for the situation they had gotten themselves into. I think they both could have walked away.” (Video after the jump)

B37 is the first of the jurors to speak out. She is the juror that GalleyCat reported on earlier today, who has signed with a literary agent and may write a book about the case. Cooper said B37 would not be doing any further interviews adding, “she kind of just wants to be left alone.”

Other notable interviews stemming from the case today: Barbara Walters spoke with Zimmerman’s parents who say they are in hiding, as is their son. HLN’s Vinnie Politano spoke with the prosecutors in the case. One of them, Angela Corey, was asked to describe Zimmerman in a word. She says “murderer.” (Airing at 10pmET on HLN). At 9pmET, Piers Morgan speaks with Rachel Jeantel, who was on the phone with Martin when the confrontation began. Also at 9pmET, FNC’s Sean Hannity will speak with Zimmerman’s attorneys, who have been making the rounds in New York.

George Zimmerman Charged with 2nd-Degree Murder

The cable networks went into overdrive this evening with the news that George Zimmerman was in police custody and charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Fox News, MSNBC and CNN carried the remarks from Angela Corey, the special prosecutor in the case.

The news broke at 6pmET, when the Rev. Al Sharpton would normally be hosting his “Politics Nation” show on MSNBC. Instead, Sharpton was appearing with Martin’s family in Washington, DC applauding the bringing of a criminal charge, thanking those who kept up the fight, even commending Florida’s governor Rick Scott. MSNBC and CNN carried the remarks from Sharpton who had said from the beginning that he would continue his fight for justice, whether on his MSNBC show, or through other venues. Martin Bashir sat in for Sharpton tonight.

While CNN and MSNBC were in rolling coverage of the news conferences, Fox News mostly stayed with “Special Report,” during which correspondent James Rosen reported on Sharpton’s National Action Network gathering on race relations in Washington.

The charge filed against Zimmerman was the lead story on the three evening newscasts.
