 He fries 'til he dies. Oh, well! Shouldn't let things get so far as to involve me. I'm sure that plea bargaining was an option. You blew it. I've learned long ago: Don't do it alone. Have yourself a witness. I'm telling you now that the cops are a bunch of zealots.  You didn't listen to sound advice, so here's your sentence. And off the jury duty I go.

Yes......but the summons better not ask for me till summer.

I actually want to be on a jury. I've been in a room waiting to be called and on-call -------but have never been questioned to be on a jury. I think I'd be good. I'm pretty fair (most of the time).

I'm thorough like hell.  I think I would make a good juror because I will look at everything most likely 6 times before giving my response.  It's a curse most of the time, but I know I'll make the right choice. 

I don't believe just by my looks, that I would ever actually get on one.  I guess it depends on the trial, but I don't think a big hispanic punk rocker will get one.  Well I look hispanic anyway.     lol

#4 | 1558 days ago

In my opinion, all the people who would make good jurors are smart enough not to be on jury duty.

I'm realistic and thorough (to OCD-proportions  ).  
But also, I can spot a guilty person in 3.8 seconds.    Impressive, right?

I will be 70 years old my next birthday.   I have always been registered to vote but i have never been called to jury duty.  But, then we only get maybe one jury trial every two or three years in this county (it maybe one every 5 or 10 yrs).  lol

I am good at separating my emotions from the facts. Until of course, I have made up my mind - then have fun trying to change it.

No...not at all.  Lawyers don't like people that demonstrate more than 2 brain cells of thinking capacity.

Honestly, could anyone see me in a jury without being thrown into jail on a contempt of court charge?

I would love to serve on a jury with you.  It would be a most interesting trial.  I have served on a couple of jurors.  Both criminal,  Extremely educational. 
#13 | 1557 days ago

Hail NOO, I agree with Norse. I would have so many questions regarding law, they would dismiss me.....immediately.I would question integrity and the judges jurisprudence.

Thanks Allen....both for the compliment, and for your service to the community to which you live.  It's good to know that in some communities lawyers have no choice but to take people that are able to think.

Personally, I regard the establishment of our justice system to be enlightened for the time upon which it was implemented.   There are weaknesses, both considering the human condition and various situations that arise in the process.  Even so, the foundation is there.  Unfortunately (a word that I think has become my trademark 'oh shyte, here he goes again' word), I've studied and observed how the manipulation of the black and white letter of the law has become a tool for administration by officers of the courts and fetters the essence of justice that the jury and judges were charged to ensure which is now more oft times a means for "misconduct" than being able to apply the law to the situation in question.

IMNSHO (in this case), it is my belief that a jury's duty is to ensure justice with the consideration of their deduction of the case itself and with the essence of humanity, whilst a judge is supposed to be the facilitator of justice and sword of the people to maintain the integrity of judicial and constitutional intent should one of the mechanisms fail.  It makes me sick to my stomach every time I read that a judge was "forced" to apply injustice because the black and white letter of the law says "he has no choice" when the established law didn't consider the specific situation.  A judge, and jury especially were established and charged with analyzing the situation as the law applies to such so justice will prevail.

Besides, it would probably be fun watching me being pulled from the jury box and getting thrown in jail--kicking and screaming as I was being pulled from the courtroom quoting Jefferson, Madison, and Henry....LOL!

I'm very thorough, I don't want to send a person to prison for the rest of their life- or worse yet, to death- IF ALL the facts haven't been completely weighed!

But at the same time you wouldn't want to let someone go unpunished.

I doubt it!

Because most of the people I've talked to who went on jury duty came back talking about the retards they had to sit on it with .... and I don't do well around stupid people!  Not saying "stupid people go to jury duty" ... just pointing out the high probability that I'll be stuck on a jury with stupid people. 

#18 | 1557 days ago

I would be fair, but I would not like to see the judge give someone the death penalty based on my vote. I think if I would were called for a case where the prosecution was asking for the death penalty I would be excused by the defense atty

No I wouldn't!  If they were guilty- then I would push to punish them to the full extent of their crime! ( I'm not as Liberal as some would like to portray me as)......

I understand that, but  some people have the mindset that if there is 1 or 2 bits of reasonable doubt, the person is not guilty.


Example: "Never mind all the other evidence, the cop was racist, and the glove didn't fit, so you must acquit".

A Proponderance of evidence, still can lead people to the wrong decision. All a mouthpiece needs is to put doubt in one jurors mind, and there goes another week. It amazes me that in the court of law, the defendant can't have his record brought up, the complaintant has his address, job info and past record read in court amoungst the defendants family and friends, thus leading to threats and witness tampering. I have been to court on 7 occassions regarding murder cases. All my info was read and I was made to be the one that didn't see the shooting even though I was there!  I've had my amount of threats though, but I wait for them to leave court, and let them see me pick up both of my weapons that are secured in the court house, and smile while I walk throug them.

Therefore, you don't build a case one a good for nothing bigot, that has wrongly imprisoned the people you have a hatred for, simple.

And all about those that have proven innocent but was executed in texas before bush made president. Yet he heard of it and FRIED them anyway. No human compassion means no life left for humans to sacrifice. Check it:
