So, being an American Citizen, I have the proud duty to serve on a petit jury. This means some low life talked back to a cop while drunk, or a woman threatened to beat her husband or the neighbors got in a literal pissing match about that bloody fence and whose land it was on.
You know, the really important things that most of us stay up late at night contemplating. The things that most adults handle, well, like adults. But no, there is a whole bunch of lowlifes who can’t, or worse, won’t act decent and obey the laws like everybody else. So this means that I get to waste my time sitting in a jury while some scheister lawyer tries to show how it was ok for his client to break the law this time. We’re not talking about murder and death penalties and reasonable doubt here. We’re talking about suing Plumber Joe for Reason X.
I am not very happy.
If I was a bear and not a man, I’d go into court and just eat those people.
I realize that our way of life is predicated on “Innocent until Proven Guilty” but my goodness, it sickens me to see that misused, abused, bent and down right broken. Unfortunately, being one of the good guys, I don’t get to ignore the laws I want to or go into this with a “Guilty!” ahead of time. No matter how much I want to.
So bear with me [ROAR!] over the next couple of weeks as I grouse and complain and vent.
