It should be eliminated because the jurors do not take it seriously and they do not get money, and also the voting system effect their vote because of emotions and background. And they are not layers!

Con

I will start out by thanking my opponent for this debate.

The jury system is an important and vital role in criminal trials.

Whether or not the Jurors take it seriously could not possibly be proved. I have been on a jury before, and I took it seriously. I would like my opponent to prove that Jurors do not take the matter seriously.

Jurors get paid.(1)

Jurors are told to be impartial and indiscriminate. An extensive juror screening process is upheld, and a wide variety of jurors are chosen. This ensures that even if a few are partial or discriminate, the results are not affected, because the Jury system goes on unanimous vote, which means that ALL jurors must agree.

I do not understand what my opponent means by "Layers".

I would like to ask my opponent what possible system could replace the Jury system.

I saw this debate, and I had high hopes for pro. Sadly, this isn't turning out too well. I would take his place, if I could. Lol.
