    I have never been called for jury duty and I would love to do it just once to see the process.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey and MeBelle

    The former works far better than the latter. The point of the former, for both sides, is to eliminate biases. The latter simply makes trials a lottery, and a trial is not a game, much less a game of chance.

    I think he's talking about his career as a law enforcement officer, not the TBI, in that context.

    It is supposed to be about winning. But it is not a "game."

    Oh i think its a game....a game of winning.

    and let me tell you why. For all the bullshit that goes on in court, for all of the arguing and back and forth...... you get out of court (the laywers) and your can still be good friends.

    Not very 'American' IMO.
    I agree it should be viewed as honorable and American but if you ever serve, you see people who cant afford to be there. They get like $12 a day. The first time I served there was a woman who had three month old twins and she had to fly her mom in from CA to help watch them while she sat for days waiting to be selected. I dont think its the idea or actual serving thats the problem, its the cost of it.

    While the TV series, Bull, may be a little over the top, I suspect there are people that make a living as jury consultants. They know how to read body language and evaluate the statements of potential jurors.
