An incensed federal judge sentenced a racist Brooklyn woman to indefinite jury duty on Tuesday after she trashed the NYPD and minorities.
“This is an outrage, and so are you!” Federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis told the woman, holding up her bile-filled juror questionnaire.
Juror No. 799, an Asian woman in her 20s who said she works in the garment industry, was up for jury duty in the death penalty trial of Bonanno crime boss Vincent (Vinny Gorgeous) Basciano.
It didn’t take long for her to start looking worse than the defendant. Asked to name three people she least admired, she wrote on her questionnaire: “African-Americans, Hispanics and Haitians.”
When the judge asked why she answered the question that way, she replied, “You always hear about them in the news doing something.” She also declared that cops are all lazy, claiming that they sound their sirens to bypass traffic jams.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Taryn Merkl requested that the woman be disqualified from the Vinny Gorgeous case because of her “inappropriate” comments. The motion was granted.
Indeed, the woman was going to be seeing a lot of Brooklyn Federal Court.
“She’s coming back [today], Thursday and Friday–and until the future, when I am ready to dismiss her,” Garaufis said.
