I don't give a hoot about Joe Jackson dying.  So what?  Why does the death of this person need to be in the news every day for days on end?

Come on! The man abused his son into becoming a superstar. Don't you think that counts for something?

To be accurate he took a whole family of semi-talents and made them rich as sing-alongs.

Jury duty today.  Whole day ruined.  These fucks have zero consideration for those selected and who have no choice but to tolerate whatever they are ordered to do.

That whole building is swarming with useless cops, who are paid cop salaries and are receiving cop benefits and pensions to make sure we take off our belts when going thru the entry scanner, walking around, sitting on their asses, etc.  There are dozens of clerks, bureaucrats, people paid to cater to Spanish only speakers, you name it, no doubt pulling down much higher salaries than they are worth.

So what do ''jurors'' get?  Pay?  No.  Brunch?  No.  Lunch?  No.  We get to get there at 8:30, where we sit for 3 hours in a room with rows of uncomfortable chairs, being quiet and doing nothing.  IF we are needed, we then go to the courtroom, where more time is wasted before a 90 minute lunch is declared.  After lunch, by the time the 12 jurors are selected they've had another 30 minute break, it's 4:30, and time for these slugs to go home.  The judge acted like he was doing us some huge favor holding everyone 5 minutes past 4:30 to impanel the last of the jury instead of making the rest of us come back the next day too.  When returning to the jury assembly room to turn our badges and get our certifications, the woman wasn't there and someone had to go look for her.  Then she took her sweet time coming.  What, they didn't know we'd be coming back after the jury was selected because they only do it every single day?

Here's what should have happened:  Whatever the judge and attorneys were talking about all morning while we waited should have been done the day before, with jury selection starting 8:30 sharp.  We should have had brunch and lunch buffet.  We should have been paid maybe $100 each, like everyone else working there.  The 3 hours it actually took to pick a jury should have taken 3 hours, not 8.  Clerks should have had the forms we were to receive available and ready to hand out when we left the courtroom.

I would love to see these lazy loafers at work at some company somewhere.
I agree.  Jurors get screwed, their families get screwed, their employers get screwed.  It is also not a fair jury when working class people can't do it due to economic hardship.  Wouldn't you say many common criminals are low-income?  Yet their jury consists of people who do not have to work for survival that day.

Unit 14

So, only criminals should judge other criminals is your point?! Yeah, that should work out great! ::) ;D

And, BTW, those people do have to work for their survival. ::)

pro tip: just ask them a lot of questions about "jury nullification" and they'll usher you out shortly. How did you not learn that, while reading all those books... oh, wait. Known toolbox. Got it.

Don't worry, that was going to be brought up if they were to ask me any questions.

Speaking of...pickup truck drivers. Why are you all assholes. I mean, you could be the nicest person but put you behind the wheel of a pickup truck and all of a sudden you feel you have a license to fuck with everyone. You can all burn in hell as far as Iím concerned.  :P
