O.J. Jury, the Sequel: Mistrial for Muslim who Shot, Assassinated Jews @ Seattle Jewish Center

By Debbie Schlussel
What is going on in America? Why is it that juries refuse to convict terrorists and won’t convict a Muslim who planned and carried out a bloody, murderous attack on people, merely because he thought they were Jews?
My G-d! The O.J. jury lives on throughout this half-asleep (or maybe Rip Van Winkle fully asleep) country. I would love the names of these idiot jurors. Is it something about the cloudy weather . . . or the cloudy, bleeding-heart liberal heads in Seattle? Did they not get their fix of Seattle-based drinkable caffeine? This guy is an Islamic terrorist, plain and simple:

A mistrial has been declared in the trial of Jewish Federation gunman Naveed Haq.


Islamic Terrorist Naveed Haq Walks


Superior Court Judge Paris Kallas declared the mistrial moments ago after jurors told her they were hopelessly deadlocked on 14 of 15 counts against Haq, 32.
On the only count the jury agreed on, it found Haq not guilty of one of five attempted murder charges he faced and deadlocked on a second-degree finding for the same charge. That count had to do with the shooting of federation employee Carol Goldman, one of five women wounded by the gunman.
Haq showed no emotion when the mistrial was declared.
Prosecutors immediately announced they would seek to retry Haq. A status hearing on a new trial has been scheduled for a week from tomorrow.
“We’re frustrated and disappointed that we have to put the victims through this again,” said Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Don Raz.
The jury was then excused by Kallas. Most jurors refused to comment to reporters.
But one juror, who didn’t give her name, called the decision “heart-rending.”
“I am very upset,” she said. “I have great compassion for the victims and their families and everyone else in this case.”
Asked to describe the atmosphere in the jury room today, the juror said “We were all very, very sad.”

Yeah, very sad. So sad, that they let a murderer go free. This should have been a no-brainer. There’s no doubt he did it, and he planned it ahead of time. And he said why he did it–to get rid of the JOOOOOS.

Victims testified that Haq, of Pakistani descent, made anti-Semitic statements before and during the slayings. Victim Dayna Klein, who was held hostage by Haq after he shot her, testified that he spoke about Jews needing to get out of Lebanon and Iraq.
On a 911 recording played for the jury, Haq was heard saying, “I want these Jews to get out.” The 911 operator told him that Klein, who was pregnant, needed an ambulance. “I don’t care,” the gunman said calmly. ” … just want to make a point … all the media’s being controlled by Jews. I’m sick and tired of it … Patch me in to CNN.”
Victim Christina Rexroad testified tearfully about her near-deadly encounter with Haq that afternoon. She said heard “popping” noises and walked down the hallway and saw Haq, who had forced his way into the locked building about two minutes earlier.
“He turned and looked at me. He had a gun in his hand. He shot me,” said Rexroad, her voice quivering.
Prosecution witnesses also testified that Haq conducted a computer search prior to the shootings to find his intended target.
According to the testimony of a Seattle police computer-forensic specialist, Haq sat down at his laptop the day before the shooting and began entering Internet search terms. He began by Googling the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying group, and soon landed on the Seattle Jewish organization, eventually creating a map and directions for the 227-mile trip from his parents’ home in Pasco.

Haq pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. But it seems to me the only insane ones are the idiots on this jury who were deliberating since May 23 on what should have taken them two minutes to reach a guilty verdict.

Haq’s attorneys said that he had suffered through an abusive childhood and increasingly paranoid teenage and college years, loathed his short stature and Muslim heritage and was reeling from a dangerous regimen of prescription medications when he entered a manic state and heard God telling him to go on a mission.

So sad, too bad. Um, lots of Muslims hear G-d telling them to go on that same mission. And they’re not insane, just endless vessels of hate and violence. This guy is no different.
Rot In Hell.
And frankly, I don’t wish much better on this idiotic jury that can’t find their butts to save their lives, but can find compassion everywhere for the worst of our enemies.
We need to move these trials outside of places like Great FruitNuttia a/k/a Seattle.

Ask any cop in the greater Seattle area and they’ll tell you that juries there are just plain weird! Liberal pukes that over-analyze the psyche of the offender, not just whether they are guilty or innocent. Truly sad how this guy can do what he did. Who would shoot innocent women (especially one that was pregnant at the time) who were just going about their daily business? People move to Seattle because Berkley is too conservative for them. Shame on that jury! Hope they can sleep at night – tye-dyed, Birkenstock wearing, hairy-legged, hippie freaks! ‘Maybe Haq was the victim here. Why does he hate so much? Maybe we can make him whole again.’ What a friggen disgrace.

I’m totally pissed as well. I’m home most days so I watched some of it on Court TV and the jury is 100% at fault. The case was made and normal humans would have had no trouble reaching a guilty verdict on all counts. There must’ve been a couple of Jew-haters on the jury. There’s certainly no common sense explanation.

If 911 terrorist would have bailed out of planes before they hit targets, they probably would have gotten off with insanity defense.
chronically unemployed and awkward man who decided that “suicide by cop” was the answer the morning he drove from the Tri-Cities area toward the federation with three guns in his pickup and anti-Semitic thoughts playing through his mind
Tahmeed Ahmad
Less than 24 hours later, the FBI said Ahmad was not a terrorist, just a poor, mentally disturbed and troubled young man who had reached the end of his rope and was trying to commit “suicide by cop.”
Omesh Hiraman
arrested on charges of carrying a loaded rifle to campus is schizophrenic and recent back surgery worsened his condition, his lawyer said
Omeed Aziz Popal
has a history of mental problems and lives in fear of the devil, some family members say. Other family members say he may have been anxious because of his recent marriage arranged by his family.
Mahtab Shiranihttp://www.mysuburbanlife.com/lemont/homepage/x1779604873
The e-mail was more of a cry for help than an actual threat, Shirani said, and even though she did not sign her name, she said she was confident police would find her through her student ID.
Kidus Yohannes
If Yohannes is released from jail, it is unclear if the guns – semi-automatic variants of the AK-47 – would be returned to him by police, Kelly said.
Prosecutors had requested a mental evaluation of Yohannes based on his alleged statements that he is Ôø?consumed by violent depictions of the death of U.S. servicemen, as well as human execution by gunfire.Ôø? He also made statements about killing a police officer, court documents allege

Hopefully somebody will take the law into their own just hands…and that’s what it’ll come to with more cases like these… and remove this creature from the face of the planet, sending him all the way to hell.

Does anyone know what the jury vote was? I wonder if it was 11-1 with the one being a Jew hater.

I think it’s the area-the west coast is full of nut jobs.

The jury disgraced itself with their inability to reach a verdict on such a self-evident matter. For Naveed Haq, this was a well planned premeditated crime, and not the random act of a madman. Apparently, we no longer have a functioning justice system in Seattle.

This evil Pillsbury dough boy should be taken out and dealt with by a band of vigilantes. Jewish vigilantes.

The “American” people are stoopid. If they were any dumber, they’d forget to breathe. That’s the way the government skools want them.

While I would not do away with our jury style way of justice, I would definitely make some changes that I doubt were there in the beginning and have somehow evolved over time which erodes at our jury system. One thing I do know is that the people around me that have been called for jury duty basically answered the questions like a normal American would (ie. make people responsible for what they do, etc), don’t get seated on the jury. It’s the numnuts that are chosen..and a numnut verdict is exactly what comes out of the courts in our area. We dumb people down in our school system and we dumb down our jury pools. Talk about sabatoge!

I live on the left coast and I agree… unfortunately it will probably get worst before it gets better….

“Why is it that juries refuse to convict terrorists and won’t convict a Muslim who planned and carried out a bloody, murderous attack on people, merely because he thought they were Jews?”
It’s the drawback of our jury system. All you need is one person with the mindset of Audacious or No Pasaran, and you’ve got a mistrial.
