Sequestered Zimmerman jurors got mani-pedis, went bowling, saw movies
NBC News ^ | July 17, 2013 | Matthew DeLuca and Andrew Rafferty

The all-female jury in George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial was under close watch by court deputies during the 22 day sequester and spent plenty of quality time together, including trips to get manicures and pedicures, movie and bowling outings, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office revealed on Wednesday.

Beginning on June 21, the six-woman jury lived in a Marriott hotel in Lake Mary, Fla., and were closely monitored to prevent them from any exposure to outside information about the case.

Each had individual rooms but the jurors would frequently meet for meals and to socialize, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office released Wednesday. But in all their time together they were not allowed to discuss the case until deliberations began....

Why is this important? NBC trying to do a "two minutes of hate" against the jurors?

I saw the comments on a primarily black site on this. I think NBC’s motive worked because this made them even more angry. They said it was like they were on vacation, and they didn’t even care about the case.

I hope zimmerman gets punative damages. His settlement should be in excess of 8 figures and CONSTANT COMMERCIALS APPOLOGIZING.

So? That sort of activity goes on during many a jury sequestration. They need something to do, radio,tv, internet etc, are all out of the question.

NBC trying to cause trouble—again.

Blacks on this case have no reason or rationale. They were worked up into a frenzy by the MSM and some race hustlers and politically corrupt politicians. How many do you really think followed the trial closely? Very little.

However, if the media wants to keep stoking fires I'm sure the blacks will do the dance for them. Moronic.

I see the source is NBC. Obviously and edited story. I don’t trust them for anything anymore. Might as well all be Andrea Mitchell.

I think this paragraph sums it up:

Despite the diverting excursions during the trial, however, the jurors that found Zimmerman not guilty of a crime in the shooting that left Florida teenager Trayvon Martin dead have since had such a strong emotional reaction to the case that the court is making counseling available to them, officials announced Wednesday.

Had the media not stirred up a hornet's nest over this, the sequester would have been unneeded.

Mani pedis are awesome. And I’m a dude. My local pub has a salon next door + you can bring in your drinks from the pub and kick back while the Asian ladies treat your feet and hands

This is just so stunning, not.

They can’t — Watch TV, read newspapers or magazines, access the internet or talk about the case.

So, they go to movies, bowl and spend some girl times together.

Just scandalous.

More importantly:

I had a finger amputated in an industrial accident 30 years ago. Do I get a 10% discount?

It's worth a try to ask.

I've failed at the barbershops, asking for discount because of the bald or thinning spots. They act like I'm trying to tell a joke or something...

But a missing finger? How could they argue?

You are utterly clueless. If the left has their way with the GZ case, neither you 110 pound wife nor you 85 year old father will be able to defend themselves against obamas people.

For God’s sake, please get a clue.

Just imagine teaching American History a century from now - half the class will think George Zimmerman’s telegram, whatever the heck that is, brought the U.S. into WWI.

The other half don’t read cursive.
