Trayvon Martin Justice Group Member Tries to Get onto George Zimmerman Jury

Lisa Lucas et al., NY Daily News, June 12, 2013

A member of a pro-Travyon Martin group was unmasked Wednesday as he tried to get on the Florida jury in George Zimmerman’s trial for shooting the unarmed teen.

A white male potential juror identified on his Facebook page as Jerry Counelis gave long, rambling answers about his impartiality when asked basic questions by attorneys.

Counelis, known as panelist E-7, said he was an unemployed painter and musician and had no problem being sequestered if chosen to serve on the jury.

After both prosecution and defense attorneys finished questioning the potential juror, they requested a sidebar with the judge.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson said she had a question for Juror E-7She then asked if Counelis posted something to the Coffee Party Progressives Facebook page on March 21.Nelson circled something on a piece of paper and handed it to him, and told him to look at it and tell the court if he posted it.Counelis said ‘yes,’ and was dismissed from the room. It’s not clear if he’s been taken off the list of potential jurors.

According to its Facebook page, the Coffee Party Progressives is a group “dedicated to seeking justice for Trayvon Martin.”

On March 21, Counelis wrote on its page that the justice system “needs an enema.”

“In Sanford … & I CAN tell you THIS. ‘Justice’ IS Coming!” he wrote, adding that “with the noise WE made … it couldn’t be covered up.”

A pair of African-Americans got extra scrutiny Wednesday. But Zimmerman lawyer Mark O’Mara categorically denied the dense teem was trying to keep blacks off the panel.

    This is why GZ is going to be convicted. It’s almost certain that nay black jurors will return a guilty verdict and among the white jurors, there will surely be one sympathetic to the ‘innocent black kid killed by white racist’ story.

    I have no idea what happened that night but I am very wary of the fact this case is going ahead in an atmosphere where only guilty will be accepted by a populace that is willing to riot.

    • MBlanc46

      They’ll need unanimity to convict, which leaves open the possibility of a hung jury. That would doubtless mean another trial. Even if he manages to avoid conviction, the Feds will very likely charge him in a civil suit with a civil rights violation.

      • brengunn

        Oh OK. Well, his odds are better than I thought. Still though, his life is over, he’ll be a walking target for any brutha with an itchy trigger finger for the rest of his life.

      • The__Bobster

        Hopefully, there will be more than a couple of Whites on the jury. Otherwise, the Bantu jurors will bully the White ones, as they did in the OJ case.

      • M.O’M is going to get a few whites on the jury, the city is still 57% I think.

      • tickyul

        Exactly, Zimmerman’s goose is cooked. I consider this political persecution…. done to appease Urban Americans.

      • Sloppo

        I think the chances are pretty good that one or more jurors will absolutely refuse to convict Zim. It’s possible, but very unlikely that any of those jurors will be black in my opinion because they tend to vote along racial lines about everything, but I think it’s very likely that at least one non-black will not want to live with the guilt of sending an innocent man to prison for defending himself. I couldn’t do that and live with myself.

        • MBlanc46

          I imagine you’re right. But all that gets Zimmerman is a hung jury and another trial. And perhaps another hung jury. And after that a federal civil rights violation charge.

          • Sloppo

            I suppose you’re right about the hung jury/new trial thing. I wonder how many times that could happen. If it were to happen many times, I think it could actually be a good thing.

          • MBlanc46

            I do not know, but another poster said that there could only be one other trial and then the charges would be dropped.

    • Spartacus

      “…an atmosphere where only guilty will be accepted by a populace that is willing to riot.”

      Good. Maybe it’ll wake up more lemmings.

    This lunatic sounds like the perfect AmRen reader!

    I see the Daily Lose is still keeping up their stellar editing:
    But Zimmerman lawyer Mark O’Mara categorically denied the dense teem was trying to keep blacks off the panel.

    Good to know Lisa Lucas et al. (Who’s Al?!) know how to spell defense team.

  • OlderWoman

    Praying for Zimmerman. Hope he gets a fair trial. But, I don’t believe he will.

    • Bobbala

      He’s going to get plenty of trials. Some of them are bound to be fair …

    • He only needs one conservative out of the panel of six to walk.

  • When you’re under voir dire, you’re under oath. I wonder if they’re going to nail this Coffee Party Occutard crackpot with perjury.

    As for the deceased, we have to remember that he was old enough to drive and was looking forward to owning his first car.

    • Your new ride QD?

      • Stop it. You know I drive a dozen year old Ford with as many Todd Akin bumper stickers (still) on it.

        • connorhus

          He never sent me so much as a yard sign. 🙁

    • David Ashton

      This one runs on iced tea, nome sane.

      • Watermelon “tea”, a radiator cooled with Courvoisier and a crank case full of Remy Martin.

        • nobody

          ……………… also, crack. There has to be some crack involved with a ride like that.

  • JJCULLEN

    Trayvon got justice, what’s the problem?

    • The__Bobster

      The mindset of the Zulus remains that the poor little boy was stalked and shot down like a mad dog by an eeeeevil White man.

      • Brian

        Blacks don’t believe in self-defense, or accident. They believe in malice.

        Thats why anything from an accidental bump on a bus or on the street, to in one case water dripping on them from someone else’s air conditioning has resulted in instant murder. In places, someone who accidentally hits a Black with a car is now often strongly advised to drive straight to the Police station rather than stop. In lovely places like Papua new Guinea, the threshold is even lower. A swarm of fire flies resulted in a triple murder, as related here.

      • evilsandmich

        Is that really their talking point? I figured it was just the usual “we’re allowed to be a bunch of lawless goons and you can’t stop us” bit.

  • Bob Jenkins

    It doesn’t matter what black you have on your panel, they’re going to be biased in favor of Trayvon Martin. Every single damn official in that court system knows it.

  • The__Bobster

    This is why our side keeps on losing. The Alinskyites only care about winning, not about playing by the rules.

    Trayvon Martin Justice Group Member Tries to Get onto George Zimmerman Jury
    ______________________________________________________________
    In the interests of decorum, I hope they tell the jury to stay in the jury room for two hours before they come out and convict Zimmermen. Hopefully, there’ll be no repeat performance of the OJ jury coming to the verdict within about 15 mins. This time, they’ll make it look as if they actually talked over the facts of the case – yeah sure…

    • David Ashton

      Is there now a case for a judicial “bugging” of jury room “deliberations”?

  • A Freespeechzone

    Notice that many blacks and self-loathing Whites take that position that the facts in this case, as we know them, are irrelevant and that punishing Zimmerman for daring to defend himself from a known, violent thug must be done at all costs.

    This is aided and supported by the DOJ, Obama and self-loathing White liberals who did nothing when Zimmerman had a bounty put on his life by the new black panthers. Lawless blacks can threaten and put bounties on people knowing they can get away with it–now if a White put a bounty on a black thug, Obama, Holder and the DOJ would engage all the resources of the country to find and prosecute.

    Whites had better ‘wake up’; if Zimmerman is convicted, minorities will be literally given the ‘green light’ to attack and murder Whites–knowing little, if anything will be done to punish them. God help the White person who acts in self-defense; they will be a target of the courts and government.

    The results of this trial will change the way ‘justice’ is administered in the future. If you are White, be very afraid….

    • Bill

      Never be afraid…NEVER.

    • Dave4088

      Agree. This could set very dangerous legal precedent if GZ is convicted. Stand your ground and other similar laws around the country will be nullified in the case of a white (or “white hispanic”) person using lethal force to defend himself/herself from violent blacks.

      White people now have dhimmi like status whereby blacks and other non-whites can attack, maim and murder us, but under most circumstances we are not allowed to fight back lest we be made into the criminal.

  • Dave4088

    None of this matters. Even if Zimmy beats the rap Eric Holder will retry him for violating the federal civil rights of St. Trayvon to case homes, loiter and violently attack anyone that gets in his way.

  • OhWow

    The jury will probably be all black panthers. You know, the liberal type of diversity.

  • Whirlwinder

    Zimmerman was in self defense mode and was getting the crap beat out of him by Martin. So he shot Martin in self defense. This is not a murder case-the prosecuter in good liberal Nifong (of Duke Lacross fame) style rammed through a second degree murder charge and should be excoriated for this reckless lawfare and should lose her license. But then, justice in America has been coopted by the socialists and is nothing near what the founders envisioned.

  • NM156

    He looks like an insufferable Boomer douchebag, man: https://www.facebook.com/jerry.counelis

    • Looks like the d-bag deleted or hid his Facebook page ……
      Somebody needs to tell him to man up.

  • Romulus

    Traitorous moron. Is there anything more despicable than a pandering fool who suffers from white guilt.

  • Robbie Cheney

    Counelis is most likely a ‘gay man’. My local paper switched over to Facebook for its reader commentary and now only negroes, homosexuals and self hating wites respond to the articles.

    A recent article about a current trial involving a young negro male who shot and killed a local executive during a robbery in an upscale neighborhood couldn’t proceed without the subject of Saint Trayvon’s ‘innocence’. Pathetic.

  • Epiminondas

    Florida’s governor is a dimwit. He could have stopped this in its tracks before it got going. Holder and the feds would have had the monkey on their backs to prosecute. Now it’s double jeopardy time for Mr. Z, because Holder will definitely prosecute if the Florida jury exonerates. And it will.

  • Sloppo

    “A pair of African-Americans got extra scrutiny Wednesday. But Zimmerman lawyer Mark O’Mara categorically denied the dense teem was trying to keep blacks off the panel.”

    I wonder what would happen if Mark O’Mara said he wants to keep blacks off the jury because blacks have a very strong history of voting along racial lines at all costs and he wants the trial to have an impartial jury. A truthful statement like that would be an enormous scandal. It’s terrible that our society hates the truth so much.

  • Alexandra1973

    The victim was white, though, in that case.

    • nobody

      They kill each other constantly with little or no reason, but it’s such a big deal when somebody else does it, even in self-defense. Ridiculous.

  • Facts in this case. George Zimmerman has lied repeatedly to detectives, on video about what occurred the night he murdered Trayvon Martin. He did a video reenactment for detectives of the events of that night in the very place it occurred, and it does not match his recorded phone call to police. The detectives know he’s lying about what happened, and any pertinent question about what occured, addressed to Zimmerman, os answered with his standard, “I don’t remeber”, “I don’t know” line. He has been arrested for domestic violence, and assault on a police officer, things that black people could never get dismissed. He went to anger management classes, he’s ADHD, takes medication, and failed in his attempts to become a police officer, so he became the self appointed neighborhood sheriff. Trayvon smoked weed, got into fights, and wrote some graffiti. But some how Trayvon is the “Thug” what is Zimmerman then? Just the average WhiteHispanic?

  • I’m personally still amazed at just how quickly one becomes white after shooting a black guy… I can’t shake the notion that if one of us were to have shot Zimmerman, he wouldn’t have been white…
