    I've often seen it said...

    ..on this and other forums. "I would rather be judged by twelve, than carried by six."

    While I agree with that in regards to a self defence shooting, I came across this story today which, I must admit, took my breath for a moment.

    As deliberations reached the 12-hour mark in the Drew Peterson murder trial, jurors came back Thursday with another question, their fifth.

    Here's an idea, let's ALL AGREE on the definition of "unanimous". Sadly, the more juries I watch, the less I want one to determine...my fate.

    I can start another thread for this one but think it applies and shows how totally fracking stupid this country is getting:
    Banning Manning’s #18 jerseys in Weld County schools | KDVR.com | Denver Breaking News, Weather & Sports – FOX 31 News in Denver, Colorado

    I think this is the funniest comment:

    Do the administrators plan to ban the six numbers from math classes? Seriously, no one owns these numbers anymore than colors. This applies to gangs, too. Quit ceding power to gangs.
    If the OP wants I can start a new thread, did not want to hijack this one. Just agreeing with him by example how dumb this country is getting.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Breaking news: Jury has reached a verdict. It will be announced at 4 PM EST

    My guess is innocent...no...I mean guilty
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Seems lately there's a tendency to make an issue out of ANY/EVERYTHING because it's easier, and more politically correct, than to address or even acknowledge the truly PRESSING issues.

    "We're concerned about violence in our neighborhood so we're changing the school lunch program" ?!?

    Where am I & what happened to where I thought I lived?

    It's been said that a Jury consists of 12 people not smart enough to get out of Jury Duty...
