This is a discussion on Jury Duty.......some people just need to keep their yapper shut within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by Treo I'll bet my butt he's a member here Why do you say that?...
I say that because this forum has a very high percentage of "kill 'em all and who cares if God sorts "em out' postsWhy do you say that?
A few random statements about hearing voices, not taking the medication anymore, and referring to yourself in the third person usually gets you out of it with no problem.
Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.

I recently completed five weeks of grand jury service. Being in a small room with no windows for that many days with the same seven people can try anyone's patience. Four of the seven jurors were gun owners. One of them was very vocal about having a CHL and carrying pretty much all of the time. It got pretty annoying after a few days, because between every case the only two topics of conversation were guns and politics. I love talking about guns, but not with those people. And not all the time. I was really glad when the end of our term rolled around.

I have had jury duty more times than I think were my share. I don't mind the time, but the "playhouse" atmosphere of most trials will get to you. I honestly try to leave my "baggage" (bias, opinions, stereotyping ) and yes I do have them, at home and go with the evidence. Problem is with all the play acting that goes on, you rarely ever really know what the real evidence is or what really did happen. Both sides spin a fairy tale and then everybody starts deciding based on their own like or dislike of the defendent and/or the prosecutor. I've seen too many convictions based on Circumstantial Evidence. Circumstantial evidence is a nice way of saying "we don't really have any proof the poor guy did it, but we'll burn him anyway."
My own advice for those who go to trial: be the one with the crooked lawyer, they are the best at spinning the best fairy tale!

ROFLMAO.... when I had jury duty.... we elected the 18 yr old female in there as the Jury Foreman. She actually did very good in keeping people on track when things got heated during deliberations.
But, the funny thing is, afterwards the Judge came in and said " I have to ask , how did you decide to elect an 18 yr old as Jury Foreman ". LOL. Because none of us were dumb enough to do it.

You don't have to like what I'm saying for it to be trueSeems from your posts you have a low opinion of many of the members. Just saying.
And because you say it doesn't mean it's true. I'd submit that the low opinion is pretty much reciprocated.You don't have to like what I'm saying for it to be true
"Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups"
That's ok , my self worth isn't based on the opinion of strangers on the internet.I'd submit that the low opinion is pretty much reciprocated.
