    Ack!
    Not until after Monday, though...I'll have to call them tomorrow. I doubt they'll issue a warrant for me before then. I don't even remember when the last jury trial was here...

    oops


    When I live in FL i was called at the same week every year for 3 years.
    I even began recognizing others called with me for 3 years.
    They are supposed to have a random selection process.
    I asked them how I could be called the same week for 3 years running and it be random?
    I was never called again.

    I was called once, I was six months pregnant at the time, they let me off.

    I have NEVER been called again.

    I would gladly serve.

    I read a study once years ago that said the average American would spend 167 years in jail if fully prosecuted for all the crimes they had comitted. Just comitted whether caught or not.

    Selective enforcement sucks. If they are not going to fully enforce a law delete it.

    You are aware that being a Republican is not a crime, right?

    Are you sure? I thought Obama changed that?

    :D

    It is a thought though, make belonging to a political party a crime? Hmmm

    This is a tiny community, a very small county. There aren't many jury trials and there are a LOT of people with criminal convictions..or who just aren't registered to vote.

    I'm sure he would, if he thought he could get away with it. However, I doubt very much that truthdon'tmatter could remain unbiased if she suspected the accused might be a right winger.
