Well, I can’t talk about the current trial and jury experience except with an emoticon. :mad:
However, the last time I was on a jury was about 4 years ago and it was rather frightening. It never should have gone to trial, domestic abuse case, both of them called 911.
Problem was there was literally no evidence of any kind except he said, she said.
Prosecutor and Public Defender were both idiots who were reprimanded by the judge numerous times.
Then we go deliberate, first vote, 9 voted guilty, based on what?
They wanted to send him away because he was arrested and on trial.
Finally after much back and forth it was 9 not guilty and 3 guilty.
Deadlock. So we would have to come back in the morning.
What? I can’t lose another day of work the 3 guilty voters said, so
they changed their votes to not guilty.
These are our “peers”.
Once this one is over I’ll tell what is going on…:roll:
