However, think of the alternative...trial by Judge. I wouldn't want to place my fate in the hands of a single individual.The jury system has become bogus in that the jury does not fairly reflect the populace. Why? Because the prosecution and defense question and dismiss the bulk of the candidates
until they land up with with a jury that favors a pre-arranged agreement(in most cases). It's almost always rigged with the purpose being to encourage pre-trial agreements
and pleas to lesser offenses
Yes, I have. Jury duty is America's way of proving to me I have to share my corner of paradise with idiots. I am now convinced I would rather not be tried by a jury of my "peers."Well it sucks. I'm sitting here bored to death, nothing to do. Anxiety is bad. Anyone here have jury duty before?
