more peacefully overnight, everyone will say thankfully. and we've got to talk about the heat. soaring temperatures all over the place. what you're looking at there is one of the outcomes we have to deal with economically here. the gas pump. congress now holding hearings on it, assume they go >> all right, i want you to look at this, a fellow nantucket man wrestling a shark onto the beach. why is he doing this? we'll hear from him coming up. >> all you'd hear from me are the screams only a dog could hear. we're going to begin with the growing danger from oppressive heat, 50 million americans dealing with this dangerous heat. look at this, see the red? that is showing the states in the northeast, mid-atlantic and midwest that are going to be sweating it out all the way to the weekend. indra petersons is outside of new york times square. already hot there, good morning,
indra. >> reporter: good morning. temperatures right now currently already 80 degrees with 70% humidity. this is our starting point. i want to mention a lot of people don't think that heat waves cause a lot of deaths, the fact is they are the biggest killer of all events combined. the heat is on. dangerous temperatures are scorching much of the nation from the midwest all the way to the northeast. the heat can be deadly. this year alone excessive temperatures have taken the lives of nearly 20 children left alone in hot cars. and amid all of this heat thousands of residents near washington, d.c., are waking up to a water shortage. >> it's hot, number one, and i'm concerned about personal hygiene and i have babies in the house. >> reporter: crews shut down a major water main for repairs last night. with temperatures expected to hit near 100 degrees this week they're anxious to get that
water flowing. >> we suspect it will be from three to as long as five days for everything to be returned to the way it was. >> reporter: and the scorching conditions aren't letting up along the eastern seaboard. at new york citi field last night thousands tried to stay cool at the major league baseball all-star game where temperatures soared into the 90s. hot spots popped up all over the city. wow that's shot, 123 degree slide, yeah, that's fun, 134 degrees steaming concrete in my face. 96 degrees, ouch. temperatures in the 90s combined with humidity will make it feel like it's passing the 100-degree mark. >> hot, exhausting. >> there is sweat on just about every inch of my body so it's pretty gross. >> reporter: so this is what we're dealing with temperatures soaring, major met poll stand cities. we have southern new england, we have new york, we have philadelphia dealing with this heat wave. this dome of high pressure is
spreading, building farther to the west so today we're talking about detroit but now as far as minneapolis so milwaukee, ohio valley, all of us baking in these hot temperatures. what makes it so unusual is we're seeing above normal temperatures for july where it is already hot. you have 90 degree temperatures adding in humidity from 70% through the overnight hours still hanging on 30% as we go through the afternoon so it's that combination that makes the heat indices so delicate. it's also the duration, the amount of time it's going to be staying with us. we'll look at the heat wave lasting in through this upcoming weekend so we have some time to go. >> indra has been telling people make sure if you got elderly neighbors check on them, people with kids check on them, folks need help to get through this. indra thanks. we're also watching multiple developments in the days since george zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of trayvon martin. across the country protests
though relatively peaceful overnight and more revelations from anderson cooper's exclusive interview with juror b-37, sparking a reaction from four of the other jurors. cnn's miguel marquez is joining us live from los angeles which has seen the most clashes between police and protesters in the aftermath of the verdict coming down over the weekend. good morning, miguel. >> good morning, kate. there was great concern about violence breaking out here and other places across the country. police have drawn a line in the sand and it seems to be holding now, this as four other jurors come out wanting to be heard. the call for justice now in the governor's office a sit-in demanding a reversal of the stand your ground laws protesters vowing to stay until they speak directly to governor rick scott, this as we're hearing more from the only juror speaking out, juror b-37 saying they wanted to find george
zimmerman guilty of something, but the evidence and law just didn't add up. >> i felt bad that we can't give them the verdict that they wanted but legally we could not do that. >> do you think thereof of interest played a role in his death? >> i believe he played a huge role in his death. he could have, when george confronted him he could have walked away and gone home. he didn't have to do whatever he did and come back and be in a fight. >> reporter: and four other jurors saying b-37 doesn't speak for them in a statement saying "serving on this jury has been highly emotional and physical draining experience for each of us. the death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do. frustration at that decision turning to protests and calls for action.
these protesters in los angeles have come to police headquarters to make a point the death of trayvon martin has prompted what they hope is a national movement. why are you marching? what do you hope to achieve in. >> i am hoping that at least the doj will look at this case and see that his civil rights were, i think his civil rights were violated. >> reporter: frustration over the verdict in a few places has turned violent. photographer and reporter assaulted in los angeles. >> news man just got hit. are you all right, man? >> reporter: the tension in the streets mirroring what went on in the jury room, b-37 says the trial weighed on all of them bringing them to tears. >> in your head you're 100% george zimmerman taking out his gun and pulling the trigger did nothing wrong? >> i'm 101% that he was, that he should have done what he did
except for the things that he did before. >> you mean he shouldn't have gotten out of the car. he shouldn't have pursued trayvon martin but in the final analysis, in the final struggle. >> when the end came to the end -- >> he was justified. >> he was justified in shooting trayvon martin. >> now b-37 also told anderson about a holdout juror on the last vote they took they all folded up their little ballots and put them in a tin box, she says that it took that last holdout juror about 30 minutes to put that little piece of paper in that box, but when she finally did, she decided there was nothing that they could do. she couldn't find him guilty of anything, it didn't rise to manslaughter, certainly not to second-degree murder. she voted and here we are today. >> miguel thanks so much. riveting interviews. the question is did juror b-37
think there was a conflict between her and the other jury members? she'll answer that later this hour in more of cnn's exclusive interview. attorney general eric holder is talking about what he will or won't do in the george zimmerman case but he is zeroing in on the stand your ground laws, holder telling naacp laws that expand the self-defense so dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods. dan lothian live at the white house, what is the latest, dan? >> reporter: first of all, chris, the attorney general is pledging a full investigation but he's being very careful not to promise what the results will be. he did however raise some serious questions about stand your ground saying these kinds of laws allow and might even encourage a situation to escalate. as demonstrations against george zimmerman's not guilty verdict continue to cross the country, attorney general eric holder for the first time took aim at stand your ground laws. >> it's time to question laws
that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and so dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods. >> reporter: speaking to the naacp in orlan dee this first african-american attorney general also got personal revealing his own experience with racial profiling as a young black man. >> i was stopped by a police officer while simply running to catch a movie at night in georgetown in washington, d.c. i was at the time of that last incident a federal prosecutor. >> reporter: now his justice department is under pressure to bring criminal civil rights charges against zimmerman. more than 1 million people signed a petition on the naacp website. federal investigation was opened last year and holder says his department will continue to review evidence from the fbi and the florida criminal trial. meantime reverend al sharpton is calling for vigils around the country this weekend. >> i think the president has
made a statement of consternatioconsolation. we don't need consolation. we need legislation and federal prosecution. >> reporter: white house spokesman jay carney said the president acknowledges passions are running high. >> he echoes the call for calm reflection that trayvon martin's parents made in the wake of the verdict. >> reporter: president obama did a round of interviews yesterday with spanish language television and while he did talk about immigration, the zimmerman case did not come uhm. kate? >> we'll be waiting to hear if we hear more from the president in the coming days. dan thank you so much. we're talking $4 a gallon gas popping up across the country. ouch. california is already there, several other states not so far behind. the gas bite could be coming to a pump near you unfortunately. christine romans is here to tell us what's going on. it's something a family tracks more than anything. >> this is your personal
economic indicator because you fill up every week, every two weeks. you feel this quite quickly and it's not the heat that has you hallucinating. the gas prices are rising and rising fast. temperatures aren't the only thing on the rise. gas prices are skyrocketing, a whopping 18 cents over the past week. >> with everything constantly going up it's kind of sad because there's families who need things to stay at a lower price. >> reporter: and brace yourself drivers experts say the price at the pump will continue to rise through the week. it already stands 26 cents higher than the national average a year ago. >> thanks to the uprising in egypt, oil prices have risen as well as declining crude oil inventories. >> reporter: the battle over gas prices taking center stage on capitol hill. >> days of the national price of gas under $3 is a thing of the past. >> refineries going down for maintenance with little overnight. the sole biggest driver in gas
prices today. >> reporter: filling up in illinois and california will cost you a pretty penny. >> i just paid $5.95 a gallon for premium and i think it's abominable. >> reporter: hawaii takes the cake at well over $4 a gallon. with higher prices likely to stay this summer leaving many to figure out how to beat the heat and the pump. gas prices go up and they go down and if the last few years are any guide maybe in september you could see some relief but in the meantime you could expect another dime or 15 cents on top of the prices you're seeing now. >> we need to track it. last week you and i talked and said it could go 10 to 20, they're even afraid of 30. >> some of the outliers say it could be 30 cents. >> that's the only time i hope you're wrong. take the subway. thanks. gas prices one of many stories we're following this morning. michaela has the latest. >> good morning to you at home, making news another fast and

convince dzhokhar to surrender. no hard date for jodi arias' penalty phase for her trial. arias' attorneys are trying to avoid the jury's determination that she killed her boyfriend, travis alexander, in an especially cruel manner, they're trying to take that death penalty off the table. bragging rights and home field advantage in the world series belonged to the american league this morning, ten a.l. pitchers combined on a shutout last night giving the american league a 3-0 victory over the national league. highlight of the night, oh, yeah, yankees closer mariano rivera making his final all-star experience before retiring. do you hear the smile in my voice? his teammates left him all alone on the mound to soak up that 90-second standing ovation before they joined him on the field. he pitched a perfect eighth inning and was named the game's mvp. >> i was trying to get the
control room to play "enter sandman." that would have been one of the most intimidating song in sports, he'd walk out no expression on his face. >> do we have time for one more thing? >> i guess we don't. >> there's only time for news. >> chris decided to steal your thunder but that's fine. we'll get him back. >> driving the bus this morning, are we and i'm under it. >> and you're under. coming up next on "new day" we'll hear more from cnn's exclusive interview with juror b-37 in the trayvon martin murder trial. she says george zimmerman broke no laws but in her view wasn't using his senses when he left his car that night. we know what killed "glee" star cory monteith. the details of the autopsy report when we come back. any last requests mr. baldwin?

videotapes that he walked police through a re-enactment of what he said happened. how important were those videotapes to you? >> i don't really know, because i mean watching the tapes, there's always something in the back scene. is it right? is it consistent? with all the evidence of the phone calls and all the witnesses that he saw, i think george was pretty consistent in, and told the truth basically. i'm sure there was some fabrications, enhancements, but i think pretty much it happened the way george said it happened. >> would you like to have heard zimmerman testify? would you like to have seen him on the stand so he could be cross-examined? >> i don't think it would have done any, been any different. i don't think he -- i think he would have told the story the same exact way. >> so you don't think him being on the stand being cross-examined would have made
any difference in. >> i don't think it would have. i really don't. >> do you think the state overcharged by going for second-degree murder? do you think if they had gone into it, started off opening statement saying manslaughter, it might have made a difference in terms of the end result? >> it wouldn't have made a difference if they would have given us the same paperwork they gave us. they gave us the laws and we went by the laws, and that's how we found him innocent. they would have given us manslaughter and everything that was attached to it, it would have come out the exact same way. >> did the jurors, did you all get along well? was there conflict? how was the deliberation process, how was being together this long? >> deliberation was, it was tough. we all pretty much get along. it's hard sometimes to let other people talk, you know, at one time and have somebody else talk instead of adding your comments to whatever they were saying,
trying to help figure out what we were trying to figure out. at times i thought we might have a hung jury because one of them said they were going to leave and we convinced them no, you can't leave. you can't do this. you have been in this too long to walk out now. >> they were going to leave for personal reasons, family reasons? >> um-hum. >> when you lay your head tonight on the pillow, in your heart and in your head, you are 100% convinced that george zimmerman in taking out his gun and pulling the trigger did nothing wrong? >> i'm 101% that he was -- that he should have done what he did, except for the things that he did before. >> you mean he shouldn't have gotten out of the car? he shouldn't have pursued trayvon martin, but in the final analysis, in the final struggle -- >> when the end came to the end --
>> he was justified. >> he was justified in shooting trayvon martin. >> hmm. >> 101% sure. we thought it would be a very close case and that testifying wouldn't have mattered if zimmerman had taken the stand. i've never heard that from a juror as well. >> really when you know where they began when they walked into the jury room split 3/3, half wanting to convict him of something and where they ended up, she says it's because of the instructions, the legal instructions that they had that came from the court. very interesting. we'll be talking much more about this. coming up next this is putting a lot of attention on florida's stand your life law bringing to light another case a woman who said she fired a warning shot. she's serving 20 years in prison. it's taking over social media and we'll take a closer look to her case. >> marissa alexander didn't even hit anybody with the bullet. what you're looking at now

it is time now for our political gut check everyone all the stories you need to know coming out of washington and around the country. liz cheney, familiar last name, daughter of the former vice president challenging an incumbent republican for a senate seat in wyoming. cnn's chief national correspondent john king is here to break it down for us. john, i feel like mike enzi for many people around the country is the nicest senator that you've known nothing about in wyoming. he's served i think some 18 years now but liz cheney coming in to challenge him in this primary. it has another a former wyoming
senator saying which i was surprised by, this is a disaster, divisive, ugly situation that will open the door for democrats for 20 years. why is alan simpson saying that? >> welcome to the fray, liz cheney. they're shocked in wyoming. liz cheney is not doing what her father used to do. he was jerry ford's chief of staff. he's become controversial as the former vice president but he was a soft spoken guy. this race will be the highest profile, it will get huge national attention, test of what's happening in the republican party. she says her last announcement, statement, "i will never compromise our freedom." mike enzi has met with the united states, a democrat and trying to strike compromises. she says compromise is a dirty word. you'll have this high profile fight and alan simpson says it will divide the republican party in wyoming, it may be opening a door for a democrat to come in. most assume whoever wins the republican primary will win this race but what a huge high
profile test of what is a huge struggle within the republican party. do you fight and compromise or fight and keep fighting. this is going to be a great race. >> it has other wyoming lawmakers not on her team, not in her camp. congressman cynthia loomis compared her to hillary clinton, saying cheney is not from wyoming and she should be running in virginia where she grew up. is she going to have as much success as hillary clinton? >> if you extend the hillary clinton comparison, what is she saying? maybe she's not from here, they tried the carpetbagger argument on hillary clinton after chappaqua . hillary clinton had a bunch of people working to are her and she won. the question for liz cheney is she has the money and name identification. she's new to politics, can she
run a campaign and convince the people of wyoming she's right to defeat in a primary a senator who is widely regarded in the republican party back home. the congresswoman might want to be careful. there's no question liz cheney will have the money and will get a lot of attention. the test now is she a good politician? >> what about the elephant in the room, her dad. do you think she'd be running if her father didn't want her to do that? >> in a word, no. trust me i've taken phone calls and e-mails from liz cheney when she's not happy with something i or this network has said about her father. god bless her for that, she's been a loyal daughter. you like that in the family. chris you know as well you fight for your family and she stands up for her family in politics. if her dad turned to her and said don't do this, she wouldn't do this. in her putting her neck out there and offending alan simpson and mike enzi, clearly there
might be parts of him who has reservations but she has his ble blessing. >> presidential nominees would give the majority party more power to push through appointments that the president wants but the crisis averted yesterday. what happened? >> what happened in the short term is crisis averted because john mccain got into some negotiations with harry reid, other republicans came to the table and the president made a key concession. this is not just republicans making concessions. the president will get five of his nominees confirmed and agreed to pull back on two at the national labor relations board. we could talk a month about the policy disagreements with the democrats and republicans over the practices of the nlrb. the president says i'll take two people back. they avoid the nuclear option. the question is does it have any staying power? what was stunning in announcing the agreement harry reid says
see what happens when we talk? we talked about immigration and student loans, we'll talk about taxes and spending. when grownups sit around a table and talk they can work things out. will they work it out again, we'll see. >> thank you so much, john. >> we didn't ask john about student loans because there's nothing to report. we'll take a break, coming back on "new day" stores that snoop on customers, also known as you, and they're not just watching you, they're peeking into your cell phone, too. coming up our must see moment, this fisherman got into a wrestling match with the shark. >> look at the guy just filming it with the yellow pants. we used to live with a bear.

speaking out, juror b-37 saying they wanted to find george zimmerman guilty of something, but the evidence and law just didn't add up. >> i felt bad that we can't give them the verdict that they wanted but legally we could not do that. >> do you think thereof of trayvon martin played a role in his death? >> i believe he played a huge role in his death. he could have, when george confronted him he could have walked away and gone home. he didn't have to do whatever he did and come back and be in a fight. >> reporter: and four other jurors saying b-37 doesn't speak for them in a statement saying "serving on this jury has been highly emotional and physical draining experience for each of us. the death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do.
frustration at that decision turning to protests and calls for action. these protesters in los angeles have come to police headquarters to make a point the death of trayvon martin has prompted what they hope is a national movement. why are you marching? what do you hope to achieve in. >> i am hoping that at least the doj will look at this case and see that his civil rights were, i think his civil rights were violated. >> reporter: frustration over the verdict in a few places has turned violent. photographer and reporter assaulted in los angeles. >> news man just got hit. are you all right, man? >> reporter: the tension in the streets mirroring what went on in the jury room, b-37 says the trial weighed on all of them bringing them to tears. >> in your head you're 100% george zimmerman taking out his gun and pulling the trigger did nothing wrong? >> i'm 101% that he was, that he
should have done what he did except for the things that he did before. >> you mean he shouldn't have gotten out of the car. he shouldn't have pursued trayvon martin but in the final analysis, in the final struggle. >> when the end came to the end -- >> he was justified. >> he was justified in shooting trayvon martin. >> now b-37 also told anderson about one holdout juror, the juror wanted to find zimmerman guilty of something. on the last vote they took they all folded up their little ballots and put them in a tin box, she says that it took that last holdout juror about 30 minutes before she was able to put her vote into that tin box. by the end of it, she felt there was nothing else they could hold zimmerman on. it wasn't manslaughter, wasn't second-degree murder. >> doesn't matter what they wanted, it was the case presented to them by the prosecution.
miguel thank you very much for the reporting this morning. as the justice department considers possible civil rights charges against george zimmerman, attorney general eric holder is speaking out against florida's stand your ground law. telling the naacp it can set the stage for dangerous conflicts. dan lothian is at the white house. >> reporter: good morning, chris. the attorney general blasted stand your ground saying these kinds of laws allow and might even encourage violent situations to escalate. as demonstrations against george zimmerman's not guilty verdict continue to cross the country, attorney general eric holder for the first time took aim at stand your ground laws. >> it's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and so dangerous conflict in our
neighborhoods. >> reporter: speaking to the naacp in orlando this first african-american attorney general also got personal revealing his own experience with racial profiling as a young black man. >> i was stopped by a police officer while simply running to catch a movie at night in georgetown in washington, d.c. i was at the time of that last incident a federal prosecutor. >> reporter: now his justice department is under pressure to bring criminal civil rights charges against zimmerman. more than 1 million people signed a petition on the naacp website. website.a a federal investigation was opened last year and holder says his department will continue to review evidence from the fbi and the florida criminal trial. meantime reverend al sharpton is calling for vigils around the country this weekend. >> i think the president has made a statement of consolation. we don't need consolation. we need legislation and federal prosecution. >> reporter: white house
spokesman jay carney said the president acknowledges passions are running high. >> he echoes the call for calm reflection that trayvon martin's parents made in the wake of the verdict. >> reporter: the attorney general pledges a full investigation and says his department will focus on the facts and the law and that they will "not be afraid." kate? >> dan, thanks so much. dan lothian from the white house for us. let's talk more about all of this with cnn's chief political analyst gloria borger joining us kindly in new york. >> great to be here. >> great to see you. >> what dan was talking about in the piece, one of the things he said was eric holder talking about taking on stand your ground laws. we need to look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent. the question really is what can the justice department do? >> not much. that's more of a political statement than something he can really do something about.
there are about 30 states that have stand your ground laws. this is a state issue, not a federal issue and you can talk about it and say you don't think they're good. there are studies that show they may cause more homicides, you can use that and bring it into the national conversation which is exactly what he did because what he didn't say in that speech yesterday, kate, was that they were going to bring civil rights charges. >> right. >> side stepped that saying there is an open investigation. >> he talked very passionately about the issue but he did not give an update if it was going to happen, only that there was an investigation. what's going on behind the scenes? >> i think in talking to people inside and outside the justice department what i've been told there's a high bar for the justice department to do this. you would actually have to prove intent, that zimmerman shot trayvon martin because he was black. that's very difficult. that was not a part of the case and so what they're going to do is they're going to be debriefing the prosecution, they're going to try and find evidence that maybe wasn't used
in the trial, et cetera, et cetera. there is no deadline on this, i was told. >> right. >> for example if there is a civil suit they can wait. they can see what comes out in the civil suit. zimmerman may testify if there is one. they're seeing what happens in the civil suit no deadline other than some political pressure obviously to try and do something. >> what is the role the president plays in this? eric holder has become the face of the administration's response, not surprising on one level because he is the attorney general but are people expecting the president to get more involved? it's very sensitive and controversial topic. >> yes and no. when you talk to people inside the white house, you say why isn't the president out on this, first african-american president and all this. they say every time president obama talks about race he becomes the issue, not the other issue he was talking about. remember the old beer summit when skip gates' house in cambridge had an altercation with a police officer.
the president spoke about it, ended up having to have that summit with the police officer and skip gates so every time the president mentions race, he said if i had a son, he would look like trayvon, he injected himself and suddenly barack obama became the issue and not the issue of this case. so i think what they're trying to do is walk a fine line because he can be polarizing politically in this country so they're trying to sort of say okay, let's let eric holder take the lead on this. i am sure, however, the president at some point somewhere is going to be asked a question on this and he may have to answer, but again, the court has decided. we are a nation of laws and he's the president. >> you can be sure that people are expecting to hear from him because he is that voice of the country. he is the president of the united states, on such an issue that is polarizing the country. >> but he's limited in what can he say. what can he say, i disagree with
the court? i don't think so. >> great to see you, gloria. >> good to see you, great to be here. >> thanks so much. you could say we have big issues to talk about but this case wasn't the one that makes a point about our bigger problems. he started the ball rolling talking about trayvon martin as if he was an ultimate victim which he was because of losing his life, he could correct what he did early on by talking about the broader issue. >> he could and during the campaign during his first campaign he gave an important speech on race, maybe he'll decide to update that as a result of this case. >> and continue the conversation. >> but to specifically comment on this case could be a problem. a lot of other news this morning, michaela what do we have? >> ash and smoke invaded palm springs, california, the city's fire chief says the slow moving mountain fire is not an immediate threat to palm springs or the valley. it has destroyed seven homes in the area. more than 2,200 firefighters are working to contain that 9,000 acre wildfire.

corey's office, the same office that handled zimmerman. unlike zimmerman this involved florida's controversial stand your ground law and unlike zimmerman, alexander is doing time, a lot of it, 20 years mandatory, and she didn't kill anyone. she says it was self-defense but last year alexander was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. >> he managed to get the door open and that's when he strangled me, put his hands around my neck. >> reporter: alexander is talking about her husband, rico gray. she was in the bathroom when gray came after her. alexander made it to the garage and grabbed her gun. she fired, striking the wall. during an interview with cnn -- >> he was threatening to kill me. >> if you went out the door your life would have been easier. >> i would have lost it. >> reporter: alexander invoked
the stand your life. >> when he threatened to kill me i felt that's what he was going to do. >> reporter: her trial attorney told cnn "she had a legitimate self-defense claim based on the history of abuse at the hands of her spouse." her husband had been arrested on abuse charges and received probation for an earlier probation. "i begged and pleaded for my life when she had the gun" he testified. alexandra's motion for bond pending appeal has been denied. john zarrella, cnn, miami. >> our thanks to john for that. let's talk more about the case and bring in mark nejames, cnn analyst and defense attorney. >> good morning, everybody, good morning, chris. >> let's start with what is not stand your ground, the george zimmerman trial, was it decided on the basis of stand your ground? >> a little bit of a complex question. the defense did not mount a stand your ground hearing which
is the equivalent of an immunity hearing, three weeks it was scheduled before the trial they canceled it and they believed the judge, one, wouldn't grant it and two it would expose george zimmerman rigid cross-examination by the prosecutor. they move forward to the trial there was an acquittal and a big part of this when you read the florida self-defense statute there's a little line that says you can stand your ground and do not have to retreat if we have a reasonable belief that you're going to die or suffer serious bodily injury. it wasn't a technical stand your ground hearing but it's incorporated into the florida statute and basically an extension of the casstle doctrine, you don't have to retreat if you're inside your home. this takes it into public cases. >> we see now marissa alexander, she didn't get stand your ground because they found that she returned and that wound up
taking it off the table because? >> well the judge simply opined that pretty much what you just said she could have gone in another direction, that she was not in immediate fear of death and that she simply overreacted by firing the gun and once she fired that gun she fell under the umbrella's florida's 10, 20 life charge, mandatory minimum 20-year sentence with no discretion from the judge, so she was found guilty under aggravated assault. >> it was an assault even though she didn't hit anybody there was no injury. >> an aggravated battery would be the actual touching and aggravated assault is when you put somebody else in fear of. in your piece earlier her ex-husband had indicated that he was in fear of his life so hence you have the assault and gets aggravated once a firearm is put into play. >> 20 years, the bullet didn't
injure anybody. the prosecutor said i offered her a deal for three years, she went to trial and she's in there for 20 years when there is history of abuse in the relationship. how do you resolve this as justice fairness under law? >> welcome to florida. i've been dealing with this for 30 years as a defense lauer. we deal with these injustices frequently and this defendant was prosecuted by angela corey's office in duvall county, the prosecutor in orlando who heads the trial in the trayvon martin case. if you listen to representative coreen brown the congresswoman in that district they have upside down what they consider to be the ongoing treatment of the judicial system. the prosecutor says we're offering you three years. this is a mother of three purportedly going away for life. she thought she was within her
rights and got 20 years. when you're the mother of three and three years of your life, it doesn't sound like a birthday party. >> speaks about how race factors into it, she gets offered a deal. would it have happened if she was white. mark thank you for laying out the law. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> what a harsh sentence in that case. kate? coming up next on "new day" every move you make, every item you look at tracked by some of your retail stores. why some customers say the snooping has gone too far. >> and stacy keibler talking about her breakup with george clooney. what she's saying, in our pop four.

knew that the panamanians would stop it, a u.s. senior official tells cnn. they believe the cargo on board was a radar used to help cuba's surface to air missiles hit their targets and that cuba was possibly sending it back to north korea for an upgrade. according to a statement by cuba's foreign ministry, the equipment found by panamanian authorities included 240 tons of obsolete defensive weapons being sent to north korea for a repair. >> take some time to confirm the case. >> reporter: according to the british military publisher, on may 31st the north korean ship first entered the panama canal from the southern end with cuba as its stated destination. went through the canal on june 1 and then next reappeared at the northern end of the canal on july 11th. jane says the ship was riding
differently in the water, a strong suggestion of a new cargo load. bags of sugar, marked cuba, now visible in the cargo laid on top of the weapons material. >> what's provocative, it wasdawasn't declared. the north koreans were clearly trying to get away with something. >> reporter: but the discovery of the cargo wasn't the only drama. panama's president ricardo martin ellie said the ship's 35 crew members resisted arrest and the captain initially suffered what seemed to be a heart attack and then he even tried to commit suicide. the panamanians are now asking for a team of international inspectors, including u.s. personnel, to go through the entire ship because only part of it has been inspected. but, still, really, a big mystery if it's all old, obsolete equipment, why did the crew and captain fight so hard to keep the panamanians away? chris, kate? >> that's the question, barbara,
thank you so much. hopefully we'll get an answer. clearly a lot of news developing at this hour, let's get straight to tmichaela for te latest. >> edward snowden days away from leaving a safe haven inside moscow's airport. that is what a russian attorney is saying. snowden applied for temporary asylum in russia three weeks after arriving in hong kong. they want him sent home to face espionage. fierce wildfire in riverside, california. it destroyed seven homes so far and burned through about 8,000 acres. steep terrain made fighting the mountain fire difficult proposition and officials there report 10% containment. asiana airport deciding not to file a suit. apologizing for broadcasting phony, racially offensive names.
also more than 80 people aboard have initiated legal action against boeing, the company that made the airplane. they may also take on asiana airlines in the next few days. right now the "costa concordia" ship captain is on trial. it centers on several questions, including why it allegedly took him more than an hour to issue an order to abandon ship and why he allegedly left the vessel before all passengers that abandoned it. the ship was carrying more than 4,000 people when it ran aground and turned on its side last year. 32 people died. he schettino denies manslaughter and abandoning ship charges. nas aa aborted a space walk after water started filling up inside his helmet. it got so bad, he was having a hard time hearing and seeing. nasa is trying to figure out where the water came from. a drink bag that is attached to

and that's how we can pass the land and water back to future generations. people should make up their own mind what's best for them. all i can say is it has worked well for us. grrrrreat outdoors, and a great deal. ahhh let's leave the deals to hotels.com. perfect! yep, and no angry bears. up to 30% off. only at hotels.com.
overdose of heroin and alcohol early saturday morning. canadian officials say there is no evidence to suggest than anything other than a tragic accident. dr. sanjay gupta is here with more. alcohol, heroin, dangerous enough separately. what makes this combination so lethal? >> you're right. either one of those in too high a dose could cause death. you get a synergistic effect. we did a whole documentary about the prescription deaoverdoses. what happens is the body's central nervous system, the things you count on it to do, r regulate your heart beat and it suppresses that. someone goes to sleep and they no longer have the need to
breathe. that's the most common scenario here and it happens over and over again. >> forgive my ignorance i know so little about addiction and heroin specifically. he had gone through rehab. he had gotten clean. if somebody is clean and then uses, can that be a shock to the system in a different way, too? >> absolutely. keep in mind, heroin, one of the most addictive substances on the planet. so, people go through rehab and then they relapse and that is not considered a failure in the addiction community, that is part of their rehab, often. that is almost expected. about 60% of people will relapse. so, yes, it is one of these substances. if you try it, 23% of people will become addicted to it. it is very difficult after you go through rehab you're likely going to go through the same cycle and something that plays out over, again. >> does it take more of a toll on the body or still affecting the body in the same way?
>> it affects the body in the same way, but the impact on the body in the short term, we talked about the tragic death, but in the short term -- >> also a tendency when you relapse to binge. because you have to remember we've been talking about this, sanjay, you know this so well. it's not about the drugs. a deeper problem going on. even calling it an accident, the death, clinically, legally, nobody killed him, he did not kill himself intentionally, but that's what the drugs are doing. you're self-medicating and a bigger problem. when you have been clean sometimes the disappoint, you'll binge. >> a lot of people say they start to self-medicate very true. but oftentimes a that stage we're talking about, chris, the pain is from the addiction and you're just so self-loathing as a result of falling off the wagon and however you want to describe it, this perpetuating cycle. >> we heard from folks close to
him that on the day or on the day prior that he said he looked great and was looking really good. are there any signs that a family member or a friend can look for if someone is approaching that edge, once again. >> great question. i called a few of my sources because i wanted to know the answer to that, as well. it's hard. oftentimes there is somebody who sort of knows but hasn't asked. it's a difficult question to ask. but what i think is striking, oftentimes when someone is recovering or they're no longer using or if they are, they may look the same. you know, they may look terrible, feel lousy when they're withdrawing from heroin and may feel lousy when they're using heroin. look, i'm no longer using, i feel lousy, that's expected. >> especially heroin. when their entire body when they're off the drug, just take the drug and you'll feel better and they do because it makes their chemical balance different. with families, so little you can do. such a hard situation. that even when you notice signs,
it gets to be such a battle, it draws the whole family down. >> what are the signs you can look for? again, if you don't know, not just the stereo typical idea of somebody coming off the drug, how can you tell if somebody you love is using this stuff? >> changes in sleep, changes in eating and changes overall in behavior. people who are suddenly having wild mood changes and going from one extreme to another, that coulden be a sign. look, that could describe so many things. we talked boabout him going through rehab. only 20% of people using right now make it to rehab. in that sense, he was on a better path. some several hundred thousand out there right now. >> 10% to 20%, that's so low. san sanjay, thank you so much. such a tragedy. don't forget to air in to "dr.

>> i'm chris cuomo along with michaela pereira. you're surrounded by brown eyed girls. the only juror from the zimmerman trial is talking. we will have more of anderson cooper's exclusive conversation with the woman known to us only as b-37. the clock is ticking, but so far, no royal baby. we'll look at kate's pregnancy highs and lows and the very personal christmas gift she gave to some of her royal family members. but, first, michaela has the five things you need to know for your "new day." >> tens of millions of americans suffering through the heat wave. it could last until the weekend. nsa leaker edward snowden could be days away from leaving his safe haeven according to a russian attorney working with
him. aerial castro now faces even more charges. he was indicted on 648 new charges bringing the total number of counts to a staggering 977. epa headquarters will be renamed the william jefferson clinton headquarters in a ceremony later today to honor the former president's environmental legacy. at number five, nelson mandela turns 95 years old tomorrow. getting there has been quite a battle for him. the south african icon is on life support and getting kidney dialys dialysis. always updating our five things to know. kate? >> thanks so much. we are learning much more about what really went on behind closed doors when six women were face would the task of deciding whether george zimmerman was guilty or not. one of those jurors has been speaking exclusively to cnn's anderson cooper. not only did she say they reached the conclusion that the shooting of trayvon martin was justified, put perfectly legal. >> you have any doubt that george zimmerman feared for his
life? >> i had no doubt george feared for his life in the situation he was in at the time. >> when the prosecution in their closing argument is holding up the skittles and holding up the can of iced tea and saying this is what trayvon martin was arm aed with. this is a a kid who had skittles and iced tea, you felt george zimmerman -- did you find that compelling at all, or did you find mark o'mara with a concrete block compelling? >> mark with a concrete block, definitely. the skittles and can difficult to put it up and even compare the two. i mean, anybody can be armed with anything. you can bash somebody's head against a rock or tree or this concrete. >> you believe that trayvon martin was slamming george zimmerman's head against the concrete without a doubt? >> i believe he hit his head on the concrete. i think he was trying to slam
it. i don't know how hard george's head hit on the concrete. hit enough to get damage, bruising, swelling. i think it's -- it was definitely enough to make you fear when you're in that situation. >> the photos of george zimmerman and the photos of his injuries, were those something you also looked at in the jury room? >> we did, we did. we did all that kind of evidence first and then we listened to all the tapes afterwards. >> and that was important to you because that also made you believe george zimmerman was legitimate in fearing for his life? >> i believed it. i believe because of his injuries. >> can you talk about the process of the other jurors changing their minds? i mean, you talked about the first juror went from second degree murder to manslaughter and then you put out the question to the judge for manslaughter and then it was basically because of the jury's reading of the law that
everybody finally decided manslaughter doesn't hold. >> that's exactly why. >> was there any holdout? >> there was a holdout and probably, well, we had another vote. and then everybody voted, put it in the little tin. we had a little tin. folded our little papers and put it in the vote and she was the last one to vote and it took probably another 30 minutes for her to decide that she could not find anything else to hold george on because you want to find him guilty of something. she wanted to find him guilty of something, but couldn't because of the law. the way the law is written. he wasn't responsible for negluigible things that he had done leading up to that point. >> did you also want to find him guilty of something? >> i wanted to find him guilty
of not using his senses. but you can't fault anybody. i mean, you can't charge anybody for not being i guess, i don't know. you can't fault him, you can't fault, you can't charge him with anything because he didn't do anything unlawful. >> you say he overreacted or maybe too eager and made bad choices, but it wasn't against the law. >> that's exactly what happened. >> you say maybe it wasn't right getting out of that car, but it wasn't against the law. >> exactly. he started the ball rolling. he could have avoided the whole situation by staying in the car. but he wanted to do good. he had good in his heart, he just went overboard. >> fascinating conversation. >> it really is. we'll turn to another courtroom drama that captures the nation's attention. jodi arias is back in court.
she was convibted of first degree murder back in may accused of killing her boyfriend. cnn's ted rowins has more. >> reporter: jodi arias the convicted murder looked very different than jodi arias the defendant who for four months had a daily change of clothes and wore full makeup and glasses. tuesday's hearing was to find out when a new jury would find out if arias would get the death penalty for killing her ex-boyfriend, travis alexander. she was convicted of first degree murder stabbing him more than 18 times. on the stand, she claimed she was a victim of abuse and couldn't remember killing her ex-boyfriend. >> do you have any memory of slashing mr. alexander? >> no. >> reporter: the original jury found her guilty, but couldn't agree on whether she should get the death penalty.
the eight thought she should die and the other four, including the foreman, thought they should spare her life. >> what i did was follow the law and i feel like i did exactly what i was charged to do. >> there was significant issues. >> reporter: the new jury, which the judge hopes will start in late september will only decide the penalty, whether arias should live or die. prosecutors will prevent a mini version of the original case, focusing on the brutality of the murder. to keep arias off death row, she needs to be put back on the witness stand. >> the more they see her talk the more she becomes a human being and not a monster. >> reporter: if the jury can't decide what to do with her, the death penalty goes away and the trial judge would determine her jailtime. >> all right, ted, thanks so much. coming up next on "new day" royal baby watch 2013. we'll have the latest on will
and kate's coming bundle of joy and also preview my primetime special -- >> what? >> they gave me primetime. who knew "will and kate plus one." >> i'm letting it sink in. tomorrow at 10:00, a whale of a story tomorrow night, no, no, what is this whale doing? shouldn't be there. huge problem caught on camera. how an ordinary guy helped free one of the biggest creatures on earth. you will not want to miss it. ♪ unh ♪ ♪ hey! ♪ ♪ let's go! ♪ [ male announcer ] you can choose to blend in. ♪ ♪ yeah! yeah! yeah! or you can choose to blend out. ♪ oh, yeah-eah! ♪ the all-new 2014 lexus is. it's your move. the all-new 2014 lexus is. in cities like charlotte,ing. atlanta, and chicago,

happen, millions around the world waiting for it to happen. the throng of media outside the hospital where kate is expected to give birth any day now. cnn max foster has joined in that fun, call it fun or not. we're on the great kate wait together, max. >> we're coping under the heat. very hot here. 89 degrees fahrenheit and the met office has actually issued a heat wave alert. we're trying to cope with that. on the other hand, we have this baby issue, which doesn't seem to be coming our way. i can tell you in the last couple of hours, the queen expressed her concern about that. she told well wishers that she hopes the baby comes soon, as well, because she's got a. we're coping here in the sunshine, loungers out and umbrellas out and a huge amount of ladders for the photographers getting higher and higher every day. all getting along well at the
moment but pretty frantic when kate goes on that doorstep. well, we're standing by the queen and i are standing by with you, kate. >> how many times do you get to say that in a lifetime? that's for sure. max, thank you so much. as we wait together, excitement for the royal baby is obviously growing by the moment. i had the opportunity to venture across the pond myself to interview family and friends of the duke and duchess of cambridge for a cnn special "will and kate plus one" airing this thursday night at 10:00 eastern and pacific. take first a sneak peek because we won't run the whole thing in this hour. a close look at the pregnancy when joy quickly turned to worry. engaged, married and two years later, pregnant. and yet the royal family could not escape the worst of news in what should have been the best
of times. the joy of the pregnancy was quickly eclipsed by tragedy. a nurse at this hospital killed herself after accidentally putting through a prank call that revealed private details of kate's condition. kate was said to be devastated. >> of course, she was so seriously ill, very hormonal and so desperately hoping that she was going to hold on to this pregnancy. to have the trauma and tragedy of a suicide over what should have been the happiest announcement of their lives, i think, must have been truly awful. >> so kate left the hospital and soon returned, perhaps not surprisingly, to the comfort of home in buckleberry. christmas of that year, how was it different? >> they decided they would spend christmas with her family so she could be relaxed and put her feet up. something that doesn't happen when you're in royal residence.
but even christmas had its complications. when you're part of the world's most famous family, what do you get the royal who has everything? >> the answer to that question is something small, preferably hand made and if you can inject a little humor into it. she bought harry a kit, which went over very well. and she took up jam making and she would jar up her jam and gave pots of preserves to the family members, which i think went down very, very well. >> and you can catch much more of will and kate plus one tomorrow night. airs thursday, 10:00 eastern right here on cnn. >> when? >> 10:00 eastern tomorrow night. >> wow. >> what would they do if they had twins? >> whichever one comes out first would be the heir to the throne. >> you're so smart.
>> i know about the royal baby. time for good stuff and today's edition "payipaying it forward literally. dan kay from the uk has been paralyzed since she was hit by a car almost four years ago. but there is hope. new stem cell treatments when they became available in five years or so may help dan walk again. dan's town raised $30,000 for the treatment. isn't that great? good stuff in itself, but there's more. he met breckin who also can't walk from cerebral palsy and form of help for him. the difference, his treatment is available right now. so what did dan do? take a listen. >> raised money for my treatment and there isn't any treatment available for me at the moment and breckin can have treatment now. i decided to donate the money to
him. >> he took the money raised for him and gave it to him. since he did, hundreds of others did, bringing him closer to walking for the first time in his life. for his efforts, dan has been nominated for a pride of britain award. he said, "i have walked in my life, breckin never has. he should be able to walk." he gave him the money. the treatment is more expensive. people are chipping in. a beautiful story of somebody who is in need seeing greater need and giving. >> is that a smile? >> dan black, good on you. a good story, we find out about these from you. so, let us know about the good stuff that is going on in the world and in your life so we can keep telling you good news. from the good stuff to the human factor. boston red sox pitcher john lester may be struggling a bit this season, but nothing compared to what he faced as a rookie seven years ago. dr. sanjay gupta has the details. >> reporter: john lester was a
22-year-old rookie pitcher for the boston red sox. he had an accident on his way to fenway park back in 2006 changed his life. >> you're sitting there one minute thinking, in my case, i just have some back pain and need anti-inflammatorieies to y have cancer. >> reporter: he was diagnosed with large cell lymphoma. a rare, fast spreading form of lymphoma. in 2007, just a year after his cancer diagnosis, lester started and won game four of the world series clinching the championship for the red sox. at first, lester was reluctant to talk about his cancer. >> i just wanted to move on. to get back to doing what i love to do and play baseball. >> reporter: but that changed in 2010. we had just had our first son. i could only imagine what it would be like for him to go through something like this. lester helped launch nvrqt.
never quit which raises awareness and money for pediatric cancer research. over 125,000 in the last decade. >> children's cancer is a monster we all need to bring down. >> you know, it's amazing. a year after he was diagnosed, he is in the world series and wins game four and clinches the championship for the boston red sox and even a new york fan, i can get behind that a little bit, i think. >> absolutely. i love that he's using his position to do something good like this. >> when you hear sanjay from back pain to blood cancer. i mean, that's how it started for him. >> at the top of his game, prime condition. this is the ball, by the way. each one of these balls represents a child with pediatric cancer. 125,000 of these over the last decade. that's what they're trying to fight. >> good story, sanjay. thanks so much. >> helping the cause. you want to help, go to our website and we'll let you know

>> it was coming up and down and it was moving really slow and so we decided, adrian decided to go look into the water to see what was wrong. >> my intentions were really not to save the whale at that moment, but it was more to just see what was going on. as she pulled up to me and as she swam up to me and i eased off to one side of her and we came face to face where in the video you could see her eye and we're kind of side by side there. she slowed down and almost stopped swimming. and she kind of took a breath on the surface and stayed in one spot and at that moment, i knew i needed to take the opportunity that i had. it definitely probably one of r the greater things i've done in my life to help an animal of that magnitude and tell any animal, for that matter, but it's just, it was something that i'll never forget. >> good for them. not only save this whale, but
