Apparently, that's what "journalists" do now. They follow, stalk and dox jurors 'cause that's how we roll in the Shire.
I was raised with the rule that there are certain things you just don't say and certain things you just don't do...ever! Doxing jurors falls under the "Just Don't Do" heading in a civilized society.
Nevertheless, on November 29th, Bloomberg writers Mary Biekert and Patricia Hurtado announced just enough details on the occupations, previous employment, ethnicities, etc. of the jurors in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial that anyone with 1) natural curiosity, 2) access to the Internet, 3) a LinkedIn account and/or a really good network of acquaintances could probably figure out the identity of the jurors in The Case of The Decade.
It's almost as if Bloomberg doesn't want Ghislaine to receive her Constitutional right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury. Hmmmm, now why would that be!?
Just to put that in perspective, a ream of standard laser printer paper contains 500 sheets, is 2½ inches thick and weighs approximately 5 pounds depending on the type of paper.
The prosecution used 5,400 reams weighing in at 27,000 pounds or 13.5 tons. There are literally 13.5 tons of evidence against Ghislaine Maxwell. Transporting the evidence against her required a forklift and half a semi trailer giving Michael's favorite saying, "If you have it, a trucker brought it" new meaning! (He was a trucker for a few years.)
By contrast, the complete works of William Shakespeare, including 37 plays, 160 sonnets and 5 books of poetry, tops out at 5,328 pages. Samuel Pepys' diary pushes 3,000 pages. Since I started journaling ten years ago, I've only filled fifteen spiral notebooks with my scribbling.
So what the heck has Ghislaine been doing in her brief 59 years that fills nearly 3 million pages!?! What a busy little bee she must be, full of stings, making honeypots day and night.
I feel almost as hopeful about Ghislaine's trial as I did when John Durham suddenly appeared out of nowhere. #soundofswampdraining
As George Floyd's nephew, Cortez Rice, learned yesterday when he was arrested for allegedly intimidating the Rittenhouse jurors, doing anything to jeopordize a jury is "Not Cool" and Bloomberg should be ashamed of themselves.
It's something you just don't do!
