Judge Outs Zimmerman Jurors
When people mention the word “transparency” in the context of the infamously secretive Obama Administration, it is usually in a sarcastic tone. But our government does believe in making information public, provided that it helps us to make correct decisions. For example, the IRS leaked former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich’s donation in support of traditional marriage to a homosexual activist group, who used this information and the cowardice/intolerance of the tech industry to destroy his career. Now others will know better than to think their donations are private; they will make more correct decisions as to where to give money. Likewise, jurors cannot be allowed to hide behind anonymity if they are to be compelled to decide cases not on their merits, but in terms of political correctness. Therefore:
The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors’ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. …
Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.
Most likely because they are in hiding, where they may have to spend the rest of their lives.
It probably sends a loud enough message to potential future jurors that these people will live in fear for exonerating Zimmerman just because he was innocent, despite him being a “white” Hispanic who dared employ his Second Amendment rights to defend his life against someone higher in the liberal caste system. But if some jurors end up getting killed by violent people who have made a hero out of Trayvon Martin, c’est la vie. You can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs, as they liked to say in the Soviet Union.
