Her own fault. All you have to do is make a few racist comments during questioning by the prosecution's and the defense's lawyers and you can be thrown off most any jury.

You do not have to mean any of it. The judge will not know.

It worked!

Actually, the judge asked the woman, "Have you ever been up before me?"
To which the woman replied, "I don't know. What time do you get up?"

Another sure-fire way to not be seated on a jury is to tell the judge and lawyers that you believe you have the right to judge THE LAW as well as the facts. You'll be out of there in a heartbeat because they don't want you to contiaminate the rest of the jury pool by way of explaining what you mean by judging the law.

... well, I meant to say 'contaminate', but my 'fast and furious' typing messed it up. At least no border agents died from my F-up.

All you have to do to be eliminated quickly from being picked is to tack on "...according to the prophecy" to the end of every question you answer.

Just say that you know the person did it and say that even if they didn't do it, they must be guilty of something and need to be punished. "That's right, they are guilty as sin!" Or you make up a story about a run-in with them. "Yes, I know the guy, he used to break the windows out of my car and I believe he stole my mower."

Or when they ask your occupation you could casually mention the meth lab in your basement. That approach usually works.

You may want to be out of town though when the subsequent raid occurs.

Or you can act very high or intoxicated. High might work better since they might send you to a hospital instead of the drunk tank.

Why would you wish to bring that kind of scrutiny on yourself? Are you freakish for jail cells or psychiatric units? That would be a sure fire way to bring unwanted attention to yourself and for what? Just to get out of jury duty? There really are easier ways to get off serving.

I agree, but might as well throw out the absurd. This is just a public forum, not court.:-)
