Jury Duty Today

Mon, Sep 9, 2013 at 7:03 AM

I'm sitting at the courthouse, have yet to be called. I think 6-7 groups have been called so far. Hope I'm not here all day, but need to make it until after lunch so it's not worth it to go into the office. If they let me go now (10:00am), I would feel obligated to go in.

Was in bed at 10:45 last night, but could not sleep! I was still awake at 12:45...had to be up at 5:45am. I'm tired, bored, and getting a little cranky. But I'm here...I do believe the system we have is a good one. I know if I were on trial for something, I'd prefer to have 6-12 people deciding my fate, rather than one judge who might be having a bad day or just doesn't like people named Dawn!

    Pretty sure she's not allowed to say.
    We like to talk big, vampires do. "I'm going to destroy the world." That's just tough-guy talk.The truth is, I like this world. You've got, dog racing, Manchester United. And you've got people. billions of people walking around like a happy meal on legs.

    I never got called for panel questioning, just sat in the room all day long as group after group was called. They bring in panel groups first for general questioning, and from there they narrow down to what they need. My name was not called once. Sat there until 4:15pm.

    I think I would enjoy being on an actual jury, but I've never made it past the panel questioning (did get that far a couple of years ago).

    What happens if someone murders someone, or someone is robbed or whatever? What's your justice system?
