Shinola bets big on Detroit manufacturing

It has been a tough week for Detroit. As Motown's bankruptcy moves forward, one company decided to address all of the naysayers across the nation and took out an ad in the New York Times:

"To those who've written off Detroit, we give you the Birdy."

The ad features a large photo of a watch and the images of three watchmakers.

It turns out, the "Birdy" is actually the name of the watch and the watch is an IDEA built on Detroit's never-say-die, can-do spirit.

Erin Burnett reports.

Juror speaks out on Trayvon Martin shooting: Zimmerman "got away with murder"

George Zimmerman juror B29 tells ABC that the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin "got away with murder".

The only minority juror on the all-female panel voted to acquit Zimmerman is now speaking out.

The juror, who used only her first name of Maddy out of concerns for her safety, told ABC that she and others on the panel felt Zimmerman was guilty, but that wasn't enough.

Zimmerman juror to ABC: He 'got away with murder'

"You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty," she said. "But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence."

How does the Martin family feel about this news? And did George Zimmerman's team worry this one juror could put their client away?

Martin family attorney: Juror B29 was confused

OutFront: Natalie Jackson is an attorney for Trayvon Martin's family and Robert Hirschhorn was the Jury Consultant for George Zimmerman's Defense team.
