Return from Jury Duty

I would like to say I enjoyed my time in jury duty. The reality is as a law enforcement officer I got excluded very quickly. The old rules excluded people like myself and now we have our time wasted for no good reason.

The lawyers made a conscious effort to pick as many uneducated people as possible. I answered the questions honestly and was quickly dismissed. I was picked for the first case both days and was excluded quickly.

Absolutely.

Of all the times I've done jury dute, I've been seated on the jury only one time. Within a few minutes, the assistant prosecutor blew the case by bringing up the defendant's past record. A mistrial was declared, and we all went home early.

Defense attorneys do like hyper-educated liberals on their juries, too. The hyper-educated over-think everything and can seldom get beyond the concept of reasonable doubt.
