    And this is where the lying begins.

    It’s also where the looking-like-deer-in-the-headlights begins.

    I’ve served on three juries & this is not what I experienced. Once we got “caught” everyone buckled down and did the job.

    Who needs to lie? If you are in any profession that requires thinking, however slight, you will be rejected. As an IT professional, I’ve never been selected for a jury.

    “Take the first 12 people”…
    I was a police officer for 25+ years. Do you want me to serve on your jury?

    No alternates?

    I totally agree. Apply logic or common sense to anything they ask and it just ruins their whole day. Over the last 30 years I have been summoned for court duty about every other year and never been actually been picked for a jury yet.

    No I wouldn’t want you on a jury. In the last 55 years I’ve only met two out of hundreds that I considered even vaguely honest.
    I was a gunsmith for many years and heard many stories right from cops themselves how they screwed people over on purpose with planting stolen guns and drugs in peoples cars when pretending to search them. Many have even showed me their little stolen guns and drug packages they keep just for that purpose. I wouldn’t trust a modern cop as far as I could throw one and since I’m disabled that would be about 6 inches at most!

    To answer a question from 2 days ago, yes, I actually have been arrested in several different states. Although charges were dropped or reduced to a misdemeanor.

    The last jury pool I was in had a judge with an attitude a bit like this. She even made a joke about cookies and cake for the lucky chosen.
    I served on one trial and I liked the way she ran the courtroom.

    we were promised burger and fries. … and allowed to leave for lunch… with the threat of the sheriff coming to get us if we didn’t return.
    .
    we don’t get questions during selection process – but do have the opportunity to voice a question or statement to the judge prior to the lawyers going yea or nay.
