The last time I was picked for jury duty I wouldn't have minded. I want to make sure we aren't getting screwed by the system.
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of
'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day
America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. ~ Norman Thomas

I had jury duty last year...it was a civil case, this family was sueing a doctor because their husband/father had complications from taking too many meds.
With a civil case you only need 10 out of the 12 to agree. After listening intently to everything it was obvious that the doctor on trial did nothing wrong and could not have done anything to prevent the complications (the guy saw the doctor on Monday and had the complications on Tuesday, one of the experts told us that even if the doctor had caught it in time, the guy would've suffered the same fate). I stood my ground and said he wasn't guilty...everyone kinda agreed that he wasn't guilty but they wanted to give the family some money anyway...which would have meant that we would need to find the doctor guilty. It came down to 9 people wanting to find him guilty and give the family a little bit of money for their troubles...myself and 2 others held our ground. This was a Friday evening and nobody wanted to have to come back in on Monday...we still held our ground.
So we all came back in Monday after thinking about it over the weekend. It went from 9 people wanting to find him guilty to 11 people finding him not guilty (the one guy who held out had a father that had something bad happen at a hospital and he just wanted the doctor to suffer).
After the trial was over, the defending lawyer told us that the family had taken every doctor who had seen him for that month to trial...and one had already settled (the one that was actually responsible), but he couldn't tell us that during the trial.
This made me feel good, if I hadn't gone to jury duty that day some other person going only on emotion might have taken my spot and that doctor would be paying for something he wasn't guilty of.
I was also on Grand Jury a few years ago...I was the sole "no" vote on many cases, though unfortunately they only needed 12 Yes votes out of the 20 of us to pass it on to a trial.

Absolutely, anyone interested protecting or re-taking their freedom should welcome the opportunity to sit on a jury.
That is where you refuse to convict people for consensual "crimes."The primary function of the independent juror is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from tyrannical abuses of power by government.

hubby went for jury duty one day last year... wore all camo, walked in with a rebel flag cap on, and usually has his head shaved and a crazy looking handlebar..LOL... People thought he was some white supremacist.
When they ask him about if he is biased in any way, he says it depends...wait till I see them, then I just know.
I was only called once, but they sent it to my grandma's...and I didn't live in that parish anymore...so... I didn't have to go.

I think Jury Duty is fine and all, but they shouldn't expect you to drive half way across the state like I've seen them do before. Only in the county you live.
I've never actually been on Jury though. I got a notice once or twice but because I was in school and stuff, it never ended up going through.
