This is karma for my making fun of Pamela when she almost became a juror, no?
Anyways, a week ago I officially became a juror on a criminal case here in Brooklyn. It has been quite an experience so far and I must admit that it is interesting to see how the system works from the inside. People may be surprised, but I hear that jurors usually come out with more favorable opinions of the system coming out compared to those they had going in and so far I have to agree. I guess I’m not one of the cool people though that try and scoot jury duty. Sorry, but I’m not that much of an apathetic lamer </end rant>. We started our jury deliberations today and are going into a full day of discussion tomorrow. Whether we will wrap things up or not tomorrow is uncertain, but I don’t mind, it has been fairly neat so far.
