Thread: Jury duty- your take
10-28-2012, 10:39 PM #14
We all know how well they check those backgrounds out.
Any breathing idiot can be called to jury duty here. Perhaps that's why so many show up that can't speak english.
And here- sole proprietor used to get you off- no more.
For the record- serving is something I would never try & get out of.
However- I think it would be a good idea to pool more of the unemployed to serve.
As for pro jurors go- what's the difference? A juror who doesn't want to be there (or is a racist) or one doing a favor for someone. It's all corrupt in some ways.
You think a jury of your peers is uncorruptable?Always drink upstream from the herd

I've heard you can tell them your an alcoholic and they will excuse you. Perhaps take a shot or two before going in for the selection process just to add some realism; unless of course you are one anyway.If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what will never be.

They have a very good bus system down there.
The parting shot was somewhat tongue and cheek. Even so, what's the worst they gonna do? Keep you around for a while and fine ya. If your not willing to serve, the above would probably earn you a life time ban.If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what will never be.

I think I've been served a notice by mail every year for at least the past 10 years. In most cases, I call in 24 hours before and am excused by recorded message. Used to be if you didn't register to vote- you never heard from them. Then they started using the DMV's list & that all changed.Always drink upstream from the herd

I have served only once in the 22 years I have lived in GA (Gwinnet County). I have been released once, due to being self employed, that was almost a decade ago...
You guys are probably about to give me bad luck on this... <grin>GA-HVAC-Tech

Only been called in one time...wore my minister's tab collar at the time as I had just recieved my ordination. Every day they'd call me to the bench, see the collar, smile and say, "You're excused for the day." One of the jury pool leaned over to me on day 4 and whispered, "Damn, I need to get me one of those collars,..."But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.---Psalm 50:16-17
