7:03 am
violent in los angeles. >> more than 100 people pro away from a larger demonstration smashing windows and attacking people. one of those injured was a photographer from our affiliate station. thirteen protesters arrested of the violence will not be allowed to continue. >> hearing from a juror that found george zimmerman not guilty. spoke with anderson cooper on his cnn program. she said zimmerman and trayvon martin both could have walked away before the shooting. >> do you feel that george zimmerman racially profiled trayvon martin? do you think race played a role in his decision his view of trayvon martin as suspicious? >> i don't think he did. i think the circumstances conned george to think he might be a robber or do something bad in the neighborhood because of all that had gone on previously. there were an unbelievable
7:04 am
number of robberies in the neighborhood. >> so you don't believe race played a role in the case? >> i don't think it did. >> do you feel george zimmerman should have been carrying a gun? >> i think he has every right to carry a gun. i think it's everybody's right to carry a gun. >> you didn't buy the prosecution when they said he was a wannabe cop. >> i didn't at all. >> is george zimmerman somebody you would like to have on neighborhood watch in your community? >> if he didn't go too far. >> do you feel sorry for trayvon martin? >> i feel sorry for both of them. i feel sorry for trayvon and the situation he was in and i feel sorry for george because of the situation he got himself in. >> how was the first vote. >> three not guilties one second degree murder and two manslaughters. there was a couple of them in there that wanted to find him guilty of something. after we had put our vote in and the bailiff had taken our vote that's when everybody started to
7:05 am
cry. >> tell me about that. >> it's just hard thinking that somebody lost their life and nothing else could be done about it. we thought about it for hours and cried over it afterwards. i don't think any of us could ever do anything like that ever again. >> the juror and in silhouette to protect her identity. the obama administration is now under growing pressure from civil rights groups and members of congress. they want to see zimmerman face federal charges. jan crawford at the justice department. jan, good morning and what's the likelihood of that? >> reporter: good morning, norah. the attorney general has confirmed they are investigating whether he can be charged under federal civil rights charges. that's an uphill battle. they would have to show zimmerman was motivated by racial hatred when he shot
7:06 am
trayvon martin. speaking to members of an historically african-american sorority sorority, he immediately addressed the trayvon martin case. >> the deltasish are concerned about this case. the justice department shares your concern. i share your concern. >> holder called martin's death tragic and unnecessary and said the justice department is investigating. prosecutors are looking into whether there's enough evidence to charge george zimmerman under federal civil rights law. as the justice department did in 1992 when it prosecuted four los angeles police officers accused of beating rodney king a california jury acquitted the officers. but under federal law two were convicted for violating king's civil rights. the obama administration has aggressively used federal hate crime laws. prosecutions jumped 29% during
7:07 am
president obama's first term in office. proving these cases can be tough. >> it will be difficult to pursue a federal civil rights prosecution based on evidence that came out in the case. >> reporter: former prosecutor resnick said prosecutors would have to show zimmerman was motivated by racial hatred when he shot martin something that wasn't evident at trial. >> they will conduct investigation and interviews themselves, they will decide whether a prosecution on the civil rights statute is appropriate. >> reporter: despite those hurdles, the pressure is growing. there's a group of congressmen from new york urging prosecution. right now at this moment the reverend al sharpton is holding a press conference to talk about vigils in 100 cities across the country. later this afternoon 1:30 p.m. pacific time the attorney general will be talking about the case before the naacp convention in orlando. >> jan thank you. with us legal analyst jack ford.
7:08 am
good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of what this junior said to anderson cooper. >> interesting, could have a significant impact moving forward. as jan mentioned, if the department of justice is going to jump in and charge it's not for murder or manslaughter it's for federal civil rights violation. what they have to prove then is indeed george zimmerman attacked trayvon martin and it was all as a consequence of racial animosity. that's the driving force here. these jurors said in the interview, one juror said we didn't find that. it wasn't part of our consideration. they said this was all driven by suspicion but not race here. that's not binding on the justice department. the justice department doesn't say because they didn't find it we can't. but certainly if you're a prosecutor looking at this saying can i prove this down the road, you're going to pay attention to this. there are also some investigative reports released in the last couple of days showing federal investigators early on looked into this issue of race and found no evidence of george zimmerman being racist or driven by racial animosity.
7:09 am
>> incredibly revealing because many people think race was a factor and jurors say, no, that wasn't part of their consideration. what do you make of her also revealing when they first took a vote that three of them for aquilgs, one for second degree murder and two for manslaughter. >> that's not unusual. when you talk to jurors a high-profile case murder case couple of dozen murder case prosecutor and defense attorney. jurors approach shng different. it's not unusual to say where are we? lets take a vote and see where we are and see where we need to go from here. it's not unusual after the deliberative process, it's exchanging thoughts, for people to change. >> what about the instructions they said were very confusing. >> they were confusing. i remember looking at florida manslaughter case saying, you know what i'm not sure what this means here. here is what happens. the judges are given what are called model jury instructions.
7:10 am
it's put together by committees. here is what you should tell people. oftentimes is very difficult for lay people to say what are they talking about? >> love to know conversation change from 3-3 to 6-0. >> maybe we'll hear from others and they will help us understand how that happened. that's part of the genius of the system, that jury deliberation process. >> thank you. a showdown looming over filibuster rules. majority leader harry reid threatening to use a so-called nuclear option. it could change the rules making it easier to confirm president obama's nominees for top white house jobs. nancy cordes on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. it's called the nuclear option because it's considered so explosive around here that no senate leader has ever done it. the entire senate held a rare closed-door meeting that went late in the night but they didn't come up with any deal to avert it. senators aired out their differences for three and a half
7:11 am
hours last night giving the two parties a chance to vent face-to-face. >> we've had a very good conversation. the conversation is going to continue. >> senate majority leader harry reid said bargain overnight agreement he still planned to make good on his threat to change senate rules. the showdown is over seven presidential nominees waiting for confirmation votes anywhere from three months to two years. the republicans who opposed the nominees for a variety of reasons have been holding up the votes by threatening to filibuster. reid said last week he had waited long enough and he would change the rules today to allow the nominees to be confirmed with a simple 51 vote majority instead of the 60 votes typically needed to overcome a filibuster. fellow democrats backed him up. >> my friends on the republican side are hijacking these nominations. >> any president should have his or her right to put their team in place by a majority vote of
7:12 am
the consent of the senate. >> an unprecedented move blowing up rules that date back surge rice would strip the minority party of its right, poisoning relationships and driving the senate deeper into gridlock. >> this was described by the majority leader as a, quote, minor change. no big deal. it is a big deal. >> reporter: a group of 10 seniors are worried about what this could do to the institution. they have been working behind the scenes to come up with an agreement but they are running out of time norah and charlie. these votes are scheduled to begin within the next hour. thank you. major news one of the top leaders of the zetas cartel is under arrest. mexican marines captured him yesterday just across the border from the united states.
7:13 am
a former fbi director good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> how significant is this guy and his organization? >> first you have to understand los zetas. mexico has been carved up by different violent drug cartels. zetas is former special forces commandos hired by the cartel to be enforcers and brutal enforcers they were until they looked up one day and said why are we doing the dirty work and not getting the big money, so they formed their own cartel. their trademark was to go into town figure out who was cooperating with law enforcement, rival gang behead everybody, riding out of town leaving that as an example. very feared gang. >> how did they get him? >> trevino is leader of los zetas, the only a former member but the rest are.
7:14 am
they stop the pickup truck and an arrest team moving in behind. they had been laying in wait he might travel this road. they arrest him. they arrest his bodyguard. they arrest his accountant. why are you riding with your accountant? they capture guns. there's also $2 million in the truck. that's how he rolls. >> what do you think the impact is on the united states? >> well zetas on a weekly basis sends hundreds of pounds of cocaine and marijuana across the u.s. border with a massive network. fbi intelligence bulletins that i've seen talk about zetas trying to recruit among the mafia gang in prison and expand into the united states. it's significant. one thing about this group because they come from a military background when a leader is disposed of as happened in 2008 they don't have the battle inside hierarchy
7:15 am
dictates the next person with seniority moves up. we may see his brother become a leader. >> he succeeded someone else. >> in 2008. from 2008 to 2013 this is a very significant move to take out the leader again. they have had that long to be in power for trevino. >> john thank you. met another person who said last night that said one of their favorite parts of the show was john miller. don't you hear it all the time? >> i don't know what to say. >> it's the clothes. >> that's because norah and i match. you were not on the mail list. >> thank god for that. big news this morning as we learned that panama said it has seen a north korean flagship traveling from cuba. panamanian president said it declared military cargo, missile and other arms. he tweeted this photo of the
