Could it be that you just like to call people you don't know names, and disparage them at any opportunity, just for the “fun” of it?

Please that doesn’t sound right even from a liberal.

Never the less, the offer is still open, you can accept or reject.

Bruce is right, if they get the sense that you hate people or think everybody is guilty or you have the wrong look or color they will set you free. Its happened to me several times. One case I knew the judge because I used him once when he was a lawyer.

Get this photo blown up to 8 x 10 and frame it. Show it to any and every court official you come into contact with. Explain that he is your nephew.

Repeat until you are invited to vacate the premises.

From what I saw, if you have connections to any government, Fedreral, State, or local, and feel you have reason to be non objective in your opinion, you can get excused.
Out of the approximately 20 people that were selected for the case I was selected for, ten were excused outright for almost no reason other then something like they got a traffic ticket and didn't like the way the officer talked to them.
More were excused because they "thought" they couldn't be objective. It's harder to get on a jury than it is to get off.
They may issue a warrant, but they're not going to get anywhere with that B.S. if they cannot prove you received the notice. Because of that, I've seen a certain county resort to having deputies standing outside the local Mega-Mart asking customers if they are registered to vote. If you answer yes, they hand you a notice of jury duty!!

one way to get out of it is if they ask you if you have ever been involved in or know some one that has been involved in ............... just say yes and they will thank you , you are excused .

Ok, I am back from a two-day trial. Yep, I got selected for a criminal case and we the jury came out with a unanimous verdict of not guilty. The case had no merit and the State's arguments were weak while the defense attorney was like a character right out of a Perry Mason episode.
Now I really look forward for next year to be selected.

The guy fired Three warning shots! ( into the perps back).

I was cleaning my Knife when it went off!

My third wife died of a fractured skull, she wouldn't eat the mushrooms.

Any of these?
