Jury In Hal Turner Federal Trial In Brooklyn Hopelessly Deadlocked; Judge Donald Walter Declares Mistrial, Orders New Trial For March 1st, 2010


While Red Auerbach smoked victory cigars after a Boston Celtics victory, Hal Turner contents himself with a victory cigarette after the mistrial.


Jury deliberations in the Federal trial of Hal Turner, which began on Friday December 4th and which quickly became deadlocked, were declared deadlocked once again on Monday December 7th, 2009. Consequently, Judge Donald Walter decided that the jury was hopelessly hung and chose to declare a mistrial in the case. Media stories from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and NorthJersey.com. The New York Daily News is also running a poll on the case on its main page. Daryle Lamont Jenkins provides an on-site report on One People's Project. Also picked up by Raw Story; comments solicited, registration not required.

The only juror to speak to reporters afterward, 58-year-old Long Island truck driver Richard Gardiner, said the jury voted 9 to 3 in favor of acquittal, with the majority seeing the government's case as weak. He said he held out for a conviction because he did think it was a threat. Gardiner told the Daily News "He's [Turner] a publicity seeker and he wants to be a bigger force than he was. By acquitting him, he would become bigger and stronger." But Gardiner also thinks that the biggest problem in the case was that the prosecution bailed out in the case too early. The jury consisted of five White men, two White women, two Black women, two Latina women and the one Asian man. However, any of the seven Whites could actually be Jews; Jews are considered "white" by mainstream society, despite significant evidence to the contrary.

Once again, prosecutors attempted to get the Asian juror, Wei Wang, identified as a hedge fund manager from Queens, excused from the jury for "improperly directing other jurors during deliberations", but the defense resisted and the judge allowed Wang to remain. The prosecution had previously tried to get Wang excluded because of "excessive devotion to the First Amendment", but those challenges were also rebutted. The 47-year-old Turner left the courthouse without commenting, because Judge Walter's gag order is still in effect.

The gag order remains effective because the case is not dismissed with prejudice, so a second trial is in the offing. Judge Walter has set a new trial date for March 1st, 2010. The case arose earlier this year after three judges from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals - Richard Posner, Frank Easterbrook and William Bauer - upheld a ruling that dismissed lawsuits challenging handgun bans in Chicago and in suburban Oak Park, Illinois.

Meanwhile, the separate Connecticut state case awaits Turner. He is awaiting trial on state charges, accused of inciting injury to persons for urging blog readers to "take up arms" against state lawmakers there who proposed legislation to give Roman Catholic lay members more control over parish finances.

Morris Dees, who called Turner the "voice of white supremacy," is oddly silent. Would be nice if the news media rubbed it in his face. Hey, Morris, he's a FED!

Especially now considering that Hal just denounced White Supremacists saying he is not one.

"Hooch" The Ignorant Jew Is Back Again
(Apollonian, 16 Oct 09)

It's "Hoochie" the Jew, back again to prosecute the Jew strategy of making gentiles fight one another.

"Hoochie" Jew of course doesn't let on he's Jew, but we know he is by his actions and words.

"Hoochie" Jew told us awhile ago he "doesn't know anything" about Jew Talmud, and I told him to get familiar, giving the Jew son-of-a-whore numerous citations.

So "Hoochie" Jew, u piece-of-shit, u still don't know anything about Talmud do u?--u stupid Judaic filth. Get ur ass off this blog which is for white people, not kikes like u, u idiot. Can't u see it says "white reference"?--dumbass. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

So, the FED could only get 25% to say Hal was guilty, even after trying to stack the jury, even after Turner called no defence witnesses. And still those ass holes want to try again next year. What is this dead lock bull shit after such a short time? If you can't get 12 to say "guilty" then it is "not guilty" At least that is how it used to work.
