judge orders woman to indefinite jury duty for being a dumbass

You're an idiot, Juror No. 799. Yesterday in New York, a federal judge ordered a woman to indefinite jury duty for making stupid, inappropriate and racist remarks on her juror questionnaire: Judge gives 'Juror No. 799' indefinite jury duty after she makes racist remarks on questionnaire.

Juror No. 799, described as "an Asian woman in her 20s" reportedly made disparaging comments about African-Americans, Hispanics, Haitians and police officers, in addition to identifying herself as a relative of a former Chinese gang member convicted of murder:
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.

Garaufis flipped forward several pages in her questionnaire.

He landed on the page where she had said she had a relative who was a member of the Chinese Ghost Shadows gang in the 1980s, convicted of murder and still in prison.

"Why didn't you put 'Asians' down also?" the judge asked sarcastically, referring to her list of least-liked people.

"Maybe I should have," she said.
If this woman was trying to duck jury duty by making outrageous and ridiculous statements, her brilliant plan severely backfired. The judge was not amused, and ordered her to come back to court indefinitely -- at least for the rest of the week -- "and until the future, when I am ready dismiss her."
