I GOT JURY DUTY!!!!

I'm so happy. Now, I can't imagine any defense attorney who would keep me around during jury selection, being a soldier and military policeman, but I really hope I get to do it. I'm excited to be part of our legal system. I've testified a few times, for both sides, but I've never had the chance to be one of the "Twelve Angry Men", a dumbass movie, by the way. I hope it's a good one, like a murder or something.

ROFLMAO you'll be kicked off first thing. No self respecting defense attorny would let you stay. They just want weenie little yes people who believe that these people are just victims of thre upbringing.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

I know, damnit

Thing is, I really am neutral. I don't automatically assume someone is guilty, just because they've been arrested. I'm a desk sergeant and I see some pretty fucked up stuff come from my patrols, stuff I know couldn't possibly hold up in court if I were a defense attorney. And the older I get, the more I dislike authority. I know, it's usually the reverse. But not me. I went through the Border Patrol checkpoint on SR90 here in AZ, and I was talking on my cell phone. The agent asked if I was an American citizen, I said yes, then he said next time I come through, make sure I had my cell phone down so he could ask me questions. Mind you, this is almost 50 miles into the US, not an actual border crossing. I said he has no authority to give me that command and next time I come through, I'll have my cell phone and a camera up if I want, and I'm not required to answer his questions anyway. He was obviously not happy, but what could he do? I went on my way. I am definitely on the right track to becoming a crotchety old bastard. Well that, or inmate number......
