    Juror B37 Says George Zimmerman 'Justified' In Shooting Trayvon Martin

    One of the jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman of murder said the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer was "justified" in shooting unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in an interview broadcast by CNN on Tuesday.

    Zimmerman, a white Hispanic man, was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter on Saturday after a racially charged trial that has triggered demonstrations across the country.

    Speaking on the "Anderson Cooper 360" program, the juror identified as B37 said she wanted to find Zimmerman guilty of "not using his senses" but that "you can't charge him with anything because he didn't do anything unlawful".

    Shortly after the interview, CNN said four other jurors released a statement distancing themselves from the comments.

    "We, the undersigned jurors, understand there is a great deal of interest in this case. But we ask you to remember that we are not public officials and we did not invite this type of attention into our lives," they said.

    "We also wish to point out that the opinions of juror B37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below."

    The jurors have remained anonymous under a judge's order. CNN said they identified themselves only by their jury pool numbers. Reuters was unable to verify the authenticity of their statement independently.

    In an interview aired by the network on Monday, B37 said she did not think Zimmerman racially profiled Martin and believed Martin attacked Zimmerman first. It prompted extreme reactions including death threats on social media

    Four of the six jurors from the murder trial of neighborhood watch volunteer GeorgeZimmerman have distanced themselves from statements another juror made in a televised interview.
    The four jurors issued a brief statement Tuesday on court stationery saying the opinions expressed by JurorB37 to CNN's Anderson Cooper are not representative of their views.
    "The opinions of Juror B37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below," said the statement, signed by Jurors B51, B76, E6 and E40. The six-sentence statement did not specify what parts of the other juror's comments they disagreed with.
    Juror B37 said the actions of Zimmerman and 17-year-old Trayvon Martin both led to the teenager's fatal shooting last year, but that Zimmerman didn't actually break the law.
    The four other jurors said in their statement that Martin's death weighed on them.
    "Serving on this jury has been a highly emotional and physically draining experience for each of us," the statement said. "The death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do."

    They obviously all felt the shooting was justified.
