    So I was all hyped to be on a jury. I was originally scheduled for July 2nd. I called the voice message thing the night before as my summons instructed, and it told me not to report. I was like fuck that, so I got on the phone with a person who deals with the jury shit, and told her I want to be on a jury. So she re-scheduled me for the 7th. Good lookin.
    I wake up at 6:00 this morning and head over to downtown West Palm Beach. I get there around 7:30, and felt like a baller because I get to park in the garage for free. They sit us all down and shit, and we watch a video. Then they tell us we can go do whatever and when we hear our name on the intercom to report back. Finally I hear my name at about 9:30. The first thing they tell us is that its a civil trial and nobody is going to jail. Fuck. I wanted a criminal trial. So they take us up to the 10th floor and we wait there for like a half hour. Then they bring us in and the judge talks to us for a little bit. Tells us the case is a medical maplractice lawsuit. Ok this could be good I think..

    They didnt give any specifics but from what they did tell us plus what the questioning seemed to indicate.. in 1996 a 10 year old boy fell of his horse. He developed some type of brain tumor or something. He went to the hospital and apparently the radiologist who looked at his x-rays didnt diagnose his findings properly. The boy died. Now the family is suing the radiologist for maplractice. They estimated the trial would be 7-10 days.

    We had 35 people in the pool and I believe only 6 were picked. But I thought my odds were decent since we had about 15 people who got themselves kicked out by saying things such as 'i cant possibly be partial because I have kids', 'i was so distraught when you showed the boys picture I had to take a tranquilizer during our lunch break', and 'Im a Jehovahs Witness'. Yes those were all actually said. When they read off some possible expert witnesses they may call the Jehovahs Witness guy claimed he sent his son to one of them..even though the guy practiced all the way in north Florida.

    This part fucking sucked. We had to all be asked questions..one by one..by the prosecutors. This combined with his speeches and attempts at humor lasted like 2 1/2 hours. Then the defense comes up and takes about an hour. It wasnt until 4:30 when they named the jurors. They didnt call me to the jury. Im fucking pissed. I wanted to be on the jury.

    Fuck everybody.

    yeah, or maybe they thought you were just stupid for 'acting' the way you did when you could have just said 'I'm a Jehova's Witness' or something... I personally prefer to take a racist slant and seek an opportunity to expound on how the 'mud races' are destroying the true racial purity of our nation...

    but I also watch a bunch of Court TV so I KNOW how to get kicked off a jury!
