Part of the reason I have never been impaneled is because I am an informed juror.
There was and maybe still is a group out there called "The Fully Informed Jury Association." I got some materiel from them some time ago and looked at my duties as a juror.
When I said that I felt I would be a good juror because I had read up on it and had researched my duties through the FIJA people I was excused instantly.
The truth is, the courts hate informed jurors. They want people that will sit there and do just what they're told.
When one is a juror they have more of a responsibility that to just look at something as a cut and dried someone broke the law situation. It's not that simple.
One has to look at the case and everything about it as a reasonable man.
One of my general rules of thumb is I will not convict a person that did something I would do if I were in the same circumstances.
I'm not going to do a dissertation on jury duty. Here's a hot link. Learn your rights and responsibilities compliments of the FIJA.
Know your rights and responsibilities.
