Possible juror booted for Facebook post
Well that's a hoot.
So... let me get this straight. Honestly stating how you feel within a public forum is being discouraged by the judicial system? That's some pretzel logic right there.
If having a blog, Facebook profile, using Twitter, or (godforbid) talking on the air is threatening a person's right to serve on a jury, then maybe the system should suss those folks out and omit them from the process before even getting started.
And since having a blog, Facebook profile, using Twitter, or (godforbid) talking on the air are not punishable crimes, the system better not think for a second of pointing those things out like they're personal character flaws.
Nobody wants an little angry Filipino in their courtroom.
Yes. I didn't get out of Jury Duty.
But I think I am now totally looking forward to it.
(and yes, the commentary was originally posted on my Facebook wall. How's that for pretzel logic??)
