|[19-year-old Rachel Jeantel, the last person to speak to Trayvon |
Martin; used phrases Juror 37 had "never heard before."]
COOPER: I want to ask you about some of the different witnesses. Rachel Jeantel, the woman who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin at the start of the incident.
What did you make of her testimony?
JUROR: I didn't think it was very credible, but I felt very sorry for her. She didn't ask to be in this place. She didn't ask -- she wanted to go. She wanted to leave. She didn't want to be any part of this jury. I think she felt inadequate toward everyone because of her education and her communication skills. I just felt sadness for her.
COOPER: You felt like, what, she was in over her head?
JUROR: Well, not over her head, she just didn't want to be there, and she was embarrassed by being there, because of her education and her communication skills, that she just wasn't a good witness.
COOPER: Did you find it hard at times to understand what she was saying?
JUROR: A lot of the times because a lot of the time she was using phrases I have never heard before, and what they meant.
