NY Post ^ | 1/26/10 | BRUCE GOLDING

Posted on 01/26/2010 4:50:26 AM PST by jimbo123

Two jurors were excused from the "terror mom" trial yesterday after they saw a spectator point his fingers like a gun and silently curse the jury.

The unidentified man in a white headdress was taken into custody but it was unclear if charges were filed following the incident in Manhattan federal court.

"...they saw a spectator point his fingers like a gun..."

That's only a crime if an elementary kid does that at recess.

Sources said the jurors saw a man in the audience motion as if he were firing a gun at them and mouth an obscenity.

“They felt they would no longer be fair,” said Federal Judge Richard Berman, who spoke to the jurors in private.

In a transcript released Monday night, one juror told the judge he was “really freaked out” by the man “pointing in a gun gesture.”

A second juror said he would have trouble keeping an open mind “anytime anyone makes what I view as a death threat.”

The spectator was questioned and then released.

No muslim terrorism "main made disaster" connection here.

Nothing to see - move along.

There are plenty of real crimes to be concerned with -

like Christians praying in public, people saying "Merry Christmas", evil Catholics refusing to perform abortions and homophobic Boy Scout parents refusing to let their sons go camping with adult homosexuals.

The trial, which is in its second week, is taking place under heavy security in United States District Court, with a metal detector and guards at the courtroom door. Still, there have been breaches. On Monday, Judge Richard M. Berman noted some of them in explaining his ruling against a defense motion for greater public access to the court.

So far, three people have sneaked recording devices into the courtroom, said Judge Berman, adding that one audience member had even passed a cellphone, which is also banned, to a member of the defense team.

“The court finds that the additional security measures are necessary,” the judge announced.

That is totally unsatisfactory. Think of the risk posed to the neighboring community when these guys blow up the judge and his bench ~ which they will.

You have to have a courthouse kind of like the one in Alexandria Virginia which has a 200 meter blastzone.

“The spectator was questioned and then released.” What this puke did is not acceptable behavior in a courtroom. He was attempting to intimidate the jury. Why was he released? If this had been any other kind of case, say, a Mafia prosecution, that spectator would have been, at the least, arrested. Why did this guy get off scot free?

Defendant Aafia Siddiqui, a mother of two, was also hauled out of Manhattan federal court twice after repeatedly interrupting the dramatic testimony from the officer who shot her after she allegedly grabbed his assault rifle off the floor and opened fire inside an Afghan police building in 2008.

What is WRONG with this picture? Why on earth is this being tried in MANHATTAN of all places????? I know the answer, but it still boggle the mind.

That — or make the sign of the cross in the air, and calmly and peacefully smile back at him. Bet THAT would send him over the edge!

He got off free because violent threats against infidels are a part of his culture, don’cha know. We have to be more sensitive and listen more.

Oh we can hardly wait for KSM to appear in a NY courtroom.

By law our courts must be open to the public.

This is a disaster waiting to happen. Who in their right mind would agree to sit on a jury in any of these trials.

“Why did this guy get off scot free?”

Because he was a muslim - one of the people of peace - and to press charges would have been racist. Pointing two fingers like a gun at someone is widely know to be a common jesture of friendship and respect in the Middle East - the poor man was only excercising his rights to practice his religion and culture. Shessh.

This is a disaster which will happen. Who in their right mind would agree to sit on a jury in any of these trials? Answer: lots of people mostly wearing head coverings answering the jury duty summons from their local NYC Wahabbist mosque.

It would be easy enough to get excluded from that jury; just tell the truth about Islam in the interview phase.

Those who do sit on the jury should have their physical appearance altered (makeup, wigs, instant suntan, facial hair) and their identities kept anonymous other than a juror number.

Don’t worry, this story will become a “ripped from the headlines” Law and Order episode with fundamentalist Christians instead of Muslims.

You can be sure the NY media will reveal the identities of any jurors on these terror trials.
