my civic duty fulfilled...

Yes, I have just served jury duty. Ok, I didn't actually have to even go to court. I just called in every day this week and they never needed me. I'm starting to get a little paranoid because they never seem to want me on a jury...

You are lucky, Tiny. I had to go in and sit in the juror room till 3:30 when they told me my time was considered completed for the county for a year. Ruined a day, did not get paid for it by work or county cause it was only one day and I had to pay 8 bucks for parking.

Tiny, I want you on a jury. Every week I spend lots of time in court. It seems anyone with any brains can get out of jury duty, and they do. I know people are busy and jury duty is a pain. The problem is that when all the people with brains get out of jury duty, we're stuck trying to get a conviction from people without brains. Have you ever wondered how some idiot like OJ gets away with murder? The answer is that on that day all the briliant people got out of jury duty. His jury was made up of what was left. That's right. The bum from the offramp, the pimp who doesn't start work until later tonight, the guy who has committed fraud to get a free check from Uncle Sam, and the bleeding heart who's son is in prison for life will get to decide if justice is served OR NOT. Someday any of us might be the victim of a crime and would like to see justice served. Thank you for doing your part Tiny. If you've shrugged jury duty and still complain about a lack of justice, think hard, it might be your fault.

I'd honestly have no problem sitting on a jury, but I swear it's the strangest thing - I get called every year. Most times I spend the week calling in and never go to the court. When I do go to court, I'm last so the jury is chosen before I even get to answer any questions. It's very anti climactic.

I went in for Jury duty a couple of years ago, sat around all day, left for lunch, came back and then was told we could all leave. Then got like $7.

WoW all you had to do is call in
when did they start that???
Here you have to go sit in court
while they figure things out could be
a few days 8 hour days

About 10 years ago I had jury duty
I got called in for the 2nd or 3rd case
that day
it was a gang drug murder
Everyone had to leave thier cars
got herded into vans and everyone had to go
to everyones house to pick up some clothing
and off to a hotel
2 weeks
Everyone had there own room but me and another
because we were the only smokers
NO tv or newspapers but lots of good food
and they let us one night buy some liquor
.wine,beer but we really had to beg
It was ok ,I was union so I got full pay
plus what the state paid
