Anderson Cooper of CNN 360 interviewed one of the jurors in the Zimmerman trial. She says Zimmerman’s heart was in the right place — that he was just looking out for the safety of his neighbors. When asked if Zimmerman should have been carrying a gun, she said "he has every right to".
She told Anderson she thinks Zimmerman is guilty of not using good judgement. "I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done."
She said the operator should have advised George to stay in his car instead of asking him, "Can you see where he’s gone?"
