RE: How does one get out of jury duty?


Well,I opened it.What a bunch of BS![:(!]

Here's the one that gets me.

"Serving on a jury has some benefits.It allows you to exercise one of the most fundamental rights guaranteed in our Constitution."

Okay,how about I don't want to participate!Is that in the Constitution?

And the other.

"Parking is available at the Municipal Parking Authority Garage at a reduced rate for jurors."

You gotta be shittin' me [:(!] How about YOU pay for my parking !!!!

RE: How does one get out of jury duty?

Ok here is a trick, when you get there fill your mouth with toothpaste until you start foaming. It should make an interesting meeting.
You can always say, I think if someone is before a judge then he must be guilty. The defense lawyers will have you thrown out in a jiffy.
The third option is you try to be honest and maybe you will actually learn something.

What's there to learn? That the justice system is totally screwed up? That's no secret!

When they interview you ask if any colored people or Jews will be on the jury with you,or otherwise involved in the trial,that should get you out of there fairly fast I should think.

just tell them you are very prejudice and not open to other theories or ideas that you dont value. And with your prejudice you dont feel that you can give the person a fair trial.
