Off jury duty

I' m off jury duty today...Got sent home early
Heres why.I was picked to be questioned on a panel of jurors on Monday.It was for a murder trial.Two young boys with shaved heads sat next to their lawyers.Nice suits but evil eyes.
They asked if we knew any of the prosecuters etc.I knew the judge.Hubby cuts his hair,we have gone out to eat Indian food and he sings in the church choir!
I also mentioned that I knew two other judges there and hubbys godfather is running for State attorney.
I also mentioned that hubby has loads of cop friends who I discuss crime and punishment with.Which I do.
They also asked if I watch CSI!Yes,yes,yes every day...3 episodes !
Then they asked if we believed if stuff happens and its due to
1)personal responsibility
Me and the lil old lady next to me raised our hands.The lawyer looked surprised and said it was FATE not faith.
By now I knew he had labelled us as Crazy Baptist women....Which we were,not crazy but Baptist women.
We were not picked and I am grateful for everyone my husband cuts hair for.
I plan on befriending more cops and judges.It gets me out of jury duty
Not to mention the vermin on trial was there on a second offence.
My opinion...straight to the gallows

Hopefully the jury they do seat will see these people for who they really are and recommend what they deserve.

I actually enjoyed being on jury duty! But I hear ya' about being crazy Baptist women! The perceptions people get of other people can be hilarious! lol

you did exactly what they tell you to do to get out of Jury Duty.. :-)

Hahaha, I love it! Talk about having connections..;)

Hubby thinks I'm a little nutty because I actually WANT to serve on a jury during a trial. But unless I change my ideas on personal responsiblity (as in reaping what you sow) I don't suppose I'll ever get to. They just don't like people like us (defense attorneys that is).

Watching CSI is bad? Back in the early 60s, I was part of a defense court martial team in the Army. We never missed 'Ironside" and actually used some of the detective's techniques. :)
