George Zimmerman Anonymous Jurors Remaining Secret

George Zimmerman Anonymous Jurors Remaining Secret

Mark Mooney

In the aftermath of the George Zimmerman verdict everyone was heard from either by news conference, television interview or by tweet -- except the jurors.

The identities of the six women who decided that Zimmerman was innocent of murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin were sealed at the start of the racially charged trial and the court and the sheriff reminded the media after the trial that the court order is still in effect.

The roll call of the jurors sounds like a moment from a Bingo game -- B76, B37, E6, B29, E40 and B51. And during the trial the camera in the courtroom was careful to never show their faces.

There is no indication that the women will explain their verdict in public any time soon.

"Jurors were given packets of letters from the media containing interview requests. They expressed no interest at this time," the court spokeswoman tweeted out today.

The court also tweeted a warning shortly after the verdict was announced, saying, "Any attempt to identify jurors is a violation of the current order."

The warning was bolstered by a release from the Seminole County Sheriff's office reminding the media that the identities of the jurors "remain protected by order of the court.".........

If they are smart they will just let things cool down for a couple of months. After that nobody is going to be looking for trouble. The brothers will have moved on to some new outrage.

I give it less than a week before they are all outed and have their and their families lives threatened. Look for the Obama label.

I've served on two juries. In the first trial, the defendant was represented by counsel. But in the second, the defendant represented himself. As I recall, the women (including yours truly) on the jury were quite concerned to find out that the defendant was thus entitled to information about us, including our home addresses.

The court also tweeted a warning shortly after the verdict was announced, saying, "Any attempt to identify jurors is a violation of the current order."

A tweet.

Comforting to the jurors, I'm sure.

The NSA has all that info. No need to fret. They'll be outed.

No worries.

Holder and Jarret will leak the names to the right people.

Perhaps we can come up with some funny names like they did for the Asiana pilots. I bet the media would run with that.

They need to remain secret. Americans should not have to put up with the crap they would get from the maggots in the state controlled “media”.

And the same newspapers and “journalists” who condemned Snowdon for outing the NSA and their practices spying on American citizens because it looks bad for Obama will be patting themselves on the backs for releasing information that could get these jurors killed.

The media needs to leave those women alone and look for Obozo’s long list of missing, sealed and forged records. It may not meet their biased leftwing agenda but it would lead to the story of the century.

I’m not sure NSA will get the chance. I figure some outraged court clerk will run a copy and sell it Monday. If he/she is smart they will re type the info and it will be near impossible to trace.

Judge Kangaroo is largely blowing smoke. That order is probably enforceable by law on certain folks (officers of the court, for example) — but what’s she gonna do if John and Judy Public start sleuthing around and figure it out? Notice she didn’t say it violates the *law* — just the order.

Explain what? That the prosecution had no case? That the prosecution was corrupt, withheld evidence, coerced perjury from witnesses? The real criminals are the prosecutors. Some of them should be posting bail right now.

My guess is, the jurors themselves will contribute to it.

How you gonna cash in if you don’t come forward?

(NOTE: I don’t begrudge them whatever they can get! Personally I WANT to know the story of the deliberations and I would probably pay to hear it.)

Striking how we live in fear of black racism, this trial had all the markings of a lynch effort, yet we keep being told we are racists for minding our own business.

Sorry to say, the jurists need to be identified sooner rather than later. There is nothing more nefarious to the judicial process than secret courts and anonymous jurors.

I agree with you 100%. No unwanted outside influence. And ABSOLUTELY no threats or harassment!!!

>> Leave it be.

I would NEVER advocate anyone forcing or coercing them to tell their story. But... if THEY want to do it, you would never find me stopping them or advising them against it either. So if THEY don’t want to “leave it be”, well, that’s THEIR choice.
