Is forcing someone under duress to "serve" on a jury against their will a recipe for justice?
Via CBS Dallas / Fort Worth:
TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A North Texas man pushed his luck one too many times trying to avoid jury duty. Efforts to avoid doing his civic duty have landed Jose Bocanegra Jr. behind bars.How is forcing this man to "serve," when he does not want to "serve," in any way in the interest of justice? Would this entirely disinterested young man really make a good juror?
In the recent highly publicized Apple v Samsung case, the jurors, all of whom were drafted into jury slavery, clearly rushed the case and did not dole out any "justice." Despite predictions the case would last for months due to the complexity of the issues, the case ended in three days, and ended with a horrible decision which hurt consumers by reducing consumer choice.
People being drafted into jury slavery are quite simply not good jurors, the same as people drafted into war make for horrible soldiers, or the same as slaves sold to a plantation owner make for poor field workers. Mr. Bocanegra has no desire to "serve" his country, he has no interest in being a juror, yet the state feels compelled to force him to take part in some trial where some poor sap's life is on the line. That's not a "justice" system, that's a charade.
