  • Yes, I do next week as a matter of fact. I would always serve. My father fought in 2 wars so that I could have the freedoms that he doesn't get to have-I will do what it akes to serve my country-even if it is just serving time doing jury duty. You get a sitter for other things. Why not jury duty?

  • No I haven't. I've always been exempt from them because of being a student in school.

  • No, I wish I did though. I always hear about people having to do it and how they hate it, and don't want to do it.
    But I would LOVE to be called in for jury duty.

  • I have probably gotten 15 jury summons and I throw every one of them away.
    They threaten you about not responding, but I figure if they didn't get "NO", the first time~~~~~~I am not going to call and say "no" again.
    I don't want the state telling me that I have to do anthing; especially find someone guilty or innocent.
    If they were a child molester, wife or child beater, dead-beat parent or killer~~~~~~I wouldn't get any further than what they are charged with~~~that wouldn't be very fair to them now would it?
    I say NO to jury duty.

  • I might be weird but I think I would LOVE to do some Jury duty! I never have though, but then I have only been in this country for 3 years and it's kind of hard to serve overseas lol :)
