No, not for 16K, but in real life. I had jury duty today and was chosen to be on a jury for a trial that will go for a week and a half. I will check the reports here everyday, but other than that my time will be tight. If anyone needs anything ping me with a PM and I'll respond.

I have mixed feelings about this, on the one hand it's incredibly inconvenient, and on the other hand it's pretty interesting.

If you think it your civic duty, go to trial. If not, just act like a bigot and they'll have to get rid of you under the pretense that you're unduly biased.

UGH I just got a letter in the mail to do jury duty >_<

It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to be at court at 7:30 in the morning..

I hope I get a half decent trial.

Hopefully, you will have a flexibility of mind and understand how to be objective in the face of the tactics of both the prosecution and defense.:)

And good luck as a juror.

He was already selected to be a juror on trial. He already went through the interview-esque thingy.

I've always wanted to be that one @sshole juror who is the one holdout contrary what everyone else thinks. http://myfacewhen.com...

what kind of questions did they ask you to decide whether or not you were fit to be in the jury?

The questions were not of a nature that would make me less eligible. Has anyone close to you or in your immediate family suffered from a heart attack, stuff like that.

It took a long time for them to get to 14 people.

Don't forget, Jury Nullification is usually an option. Don't know if it'll be useful but more juries need to use it.
When large numbers of otherwise-law abiding people break specific laws en masse, it's usually a fault that lies with the law. - Unknown

A good one to get you off jury duty:

Nah, it depends on the trial and the court.

I'd make a bad juror because I'd just aquit pretty much anyone.

For some reason I don't believe that innomen will be getting a murder trial, and if he does, mass. doesn't have a death penalty :/.

I have been summoned to jury duty more than twenty times. I've lost track of the exact count. I've only actually served on a jury once, and I've been questioned or brought into the selection process about six or eight times. Even in the jury waiting room, I have never met anyone who has been called even ten times. I assume that the compute program that selects people has a bug that produces my name every year. I complain, of course, but they are the government and I'm not.

The most interesting question I've ever been asked by a lawyer is, "If a person killed someone with a pipe and/or a knife, would you be inclined to give him the death penalty?" I said I couldn't tell without hearing the circumstances, because it might have been self defense or something. What else could anyone answer?

I discovered over the years that engineers are very rarely selected to serve. Neither are teachers. I think engineers figure things out and teachers have already heard every baloney story imaginable. But I don't really know why.

Based upon observation, the most sought after jurors are unemployed housewives with prior convictions for drug use.

What impressed me the most is the acting ability of ordinary people as they make up stories to get out of being selected. One guy told a rambling barely coherent story about ow he could never find another person guilty of anything, because he just couldn't judge anyone. The lawyers and the judge shock their heads and let the obvious mental case go. However, he was returned to the jury pool and was interviewed for another case, before different lawyers and a different judge. I was there again. This time his rambling barely coherent story was that the police arrested somebody, the person must be guilty. I pointed out the flip-flop to the guy next to me, who told me that the incoherent juror was actually perfectly normal when chatting in the hallway. He was putting on a acting tour de force.

That was me. I was a juror on a murder trial last year. We deliberated for 6 days, about 3 of them because I disagreed with everyone else on the second count. Eventually I gave in based on a technicality of the judge's instructions, but I still think I was right.

Oh, Innoman, you should pretend to be an incredibly anti-gay bigot who's openly gay. That'l make them scratch their heads.
