I always try and get off jury duty. They've dismissed me three times. I just say something like,"he looks just like the one that robbed me". Or, "I know how evidence is withheld and I want to make sure it's fair".
I live near Los Angeles so they're always trying to get us to drive to the dangerous getto. They have all the money in the world to waste but they won't pay me my work wage. My verdict is, "they can go straight to hell".
