Jury Duty FINALLY ends

I just ended my three day stint as a juror. I’m very glad it’s over due to two very important reasons…

1. It’s been a YEAR since the original call, wasting days (playing on my DS) waiting to be called only to be told we must come back again…

2. The fact that we actually sat through the trial means I won’t be called to jury duty again for at least 5 years!!! That is awesome!

If I have learned anything from being a juror these past three days (the actual length of the trial itself) was that we have a VERY flawed system. And that a jury of your peers does not necessarily equal justice. I’ve made my peace with the outcome… Just not impressed with the process.
