So, if you ever found yourself in a courtroom with a Jury, would you prefer to have Jurors that were whiners with bad attitudes and forced to be there, or Jurors that embraced the oppourtunity to perform their Civic Duty and participate in a benefit of being a Citizen of this great country?
I asked my 8 year old granddaughter what the answer was and she said “Well, if you make $3/day more than you spend each day for a work week then you will have $15 left at the end of the week. Like $3/day x 5 days = $15”. She also added “Grandpa, you’re a real dumbass, you know it?” I’m gonna have to have a talk with her mom.
I was called into jury duty a few years ago for an OWI case. The defense attorney asked if anyone had family members who were cops. I raised my hand and told them that my dad, brother, and sister were all cops and that my wife works for the police department as well. He then asked if anyone had ever witnessed a sobriety test and I raised my hand and told them that I had on multiple occasions. He asked if anyone knows how a breathalyzer works and once again I raised my hand. Finally he looks at me and asked if I was a Spencer. I told him that I was. He asked if I rode with my dad a lot and I said that I did. As a joke, he asked if I was riding with my dad the night that this gentlemen was arrested. I looked at the guy, grinned, and said yes, yes I was. I told him that my dad was not the arresting or assisting officer, but I did see him when he was being booked at the police station. I told him that if I do not make the jury that I could be used as a witness for his actions at the police station. Needless to say, I was the first person dismissed.
