That headline made my grammar gland twitch...

Farking English...do you speak it, Subby?

The word 'against' has no business being in this headline. It should be knocked out and helicoptered to another headline

Reads headline......wut?

...Why would he think he'd get a criminal trial? 90% are civil.

Subby fail English? That's unpossible.

"wearing an FBI sweatshirt"

That's one way to avoid selection.

Criminal unless proven innocent.

More like intelligently trying to get out of jury duty.  Which it seems like he did.  Im sure his celebrity had something to do with it as well.

Did he promise to eat their balls?

I think I'd enjoy him as the Foreman in Anatomy of a Murder

I dunno, I've been on 2 and both were criminal, though it could just be that I live in a shiatty city.

The best of the 2 though was a guy, probably early 20s. The cops stopped him after he got out of his car (they never elaborated but it was a vice cop, so my guess is that they had some kind of intel on him) and gave him a pat down. When they did this, they felt something near the small of his back so they immediately took him downtown and did a strip search (probably to not contaminate evidence). Sewn between 2 PAIRS OF farkING BOXERS was about 60 grams of crack cocaine in baggies. He was charged with possession of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and intent to deliver.

The defense attorney was a masterpiece - he wasn't arguing the possession (obviously) or the paraphernalia, he was saying that his client did not have intent to deliver. As if that was his personal stash (which the street value was about $8,000 and the dude had a minimum wage part time job), because you know when you want your fix for crack you'll just calmly rip open those boxers and get a little bit and sew it back up right?

We deliberated for an hour (agreed on the first 2 counts) and the only reason for that hour was that there was this dumb farking country housewife from the county who had no idea about any of this and probably watched too much Law and Order. She said "They say it has to be beyond a reasonable doubt...and I have doubt! Who says that's not his personal drugs?" We had to gently convince her that a REASONABLE person with a functioning brain stem would realize that a person with crack cocaine sewed in between 2 pairs of boxers, with an amount that almost equals his yearly income in value, is a drug mule and is not doing this to protect his stash. She finally agreed, and as we were walking out she was crying because she felt like she put an innocent man in jail.

The foreman we elected (a black woman, I think she was an exec or something by her demeanor) said to me in an aside as we walked out to our cars, "That is one of the dumbest women I have ever met." and we both just shook our head.

Meh. All you'd have to say is that you love your momma and T would filibust the living shiat out of the other jurors for your acquittal;

I pity the guy behind him at the security checkpoint. "That's all your metal objects, sir."

I have a feeling the only verdict in that trial is... pain.

So he'll be on a jury full of criminals, and he'll be fighting them to see that justice is served?

She may have been dumb,  but in your story the justice system worked the way it was designed.  She had a doubt and with her upbringing it was reasonable doubt.  And a crackhead could probably smoke that much if they had the money and the time.  It make have taken a month or so but it could have been done.

Subby should have stayed in in school and said no to drugs. He has dishonored his Mother and her varicose veins.

I had it the other way round.

Stupid 19 year old lost a bar fight and shot at an a pregnant woman whom had nothing to do with it (missed all of six shots) to make himself feel better. Everybody on the jury agreed it was second degree attempted murder because it wasn't premeditated except one dumbass who wanted to take the law into her own hands and go for first degree because she, "Wanted to make sure he was properly punished." This, despite the judges specific instructions to not consider sentencing when deliberating.

Took two days to get her straightened out.

/After the trial, I looked the dumbass 19 year old (Perry Williams) up on myspace. Turned out he was in a wannabe Pontiac gang called New World Order (About the time it was popular on WWE T-shirts.) It looked like he was the most hardcore of the gang since all the rest just posted "Free so-and-so!" Despite agreeing so-and-so commited the crime they went to jail for.

He has to serve jury duty against with the criminals?

I should think he'd be serving jury duty for them instead.
