I agree there are problems with the process in many jurisdictions. However, as a strict privacy advocate, I have a problem with making data public. There are too many ways the information can be collected and abused by third parties. A better approach would be to set software criteria and/or design a model software system for use in jury pool selection.

I had no idea this was such a problem; I guess I need to pay more attention to the courtroom scenes in procedural dramas or the news to see how diverse their juries are. I remember from watching People vs. O.J. Simpson that his defense team pushed hard for the trial to be held in a downtown court so that the jury could have multiple black members. Makes me wish they took that kind of care more often

Rice should not be a factor in jury duty! Implying that we need certain races on certain juries is racist in and of itself.

Let's talk about how most Americans see jury duty as a problem. And it is in a our society, mostly because of work. I finally served on a week long jury. It was interesting. I only served i think because I was, enthusiastic, not working at the momemt, and the only non white, non Hispanic person selected. I answered more then my fair share of direct answers to both the judge and both sides of the case. The weirdest thing is I answered each question exactly how I should have, being extremely neutral and enthusiastic. I do not pretend to be smart but my answers could easy be telegraphed.

Is this the problem with juries? That they select too many white people? Not that the decicion of somebody's guilt is left to people without legal training?

OK OK, Let's dig into the "archives" when one of my mentors told me his mom was an archivist..I actually did believe that until years later, he told me I was lonely when he spent years teaching me that a person can be alone, but not necessarily lonely. So here's a question your segment just reminded me of ? How is it that 3 other well respected men in my life tell me this? ""I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing this for you..." another one said to me "this is all about you" and thirdly I wonder if you know why uTube became BGpost and why? Just random thoughts maybe you can help me with. {oh yeah, on that blockbuster segment, there was a poster on the backwall saying something like "we are all arrogant...somethings" (not sure of the exact wording of it, but I know someone out there would know what I mean) So funny this world is so multifactorial....Trust me, Ripley's beleive it or not, #hashtag used to be a number sign but do we use math anymore? Is that still a thing. And when your brain just runs on the spin cycle like this, is there someone out there who knows how to end it so no persons, places, or things will be harmed in the end?????My daughter told me this has got to end (and I will refer to the funniest expression I heard in my life as a comedic officianato....I'm out} Or could it be Just Stop It..... and please someone stand up and raise their hand To HELP anyone?

The Constitution does not say “ ury of your peers.” 6th Amendment: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.” No peers.

I was called for jury duty when I was 7 months pregnant with twins(I had been called previously too); I sent in the form with my number. A few weeks later a nervous sounding man called and said I wasn’t excluded and needed to arrive, etc. After hearing him nagging me for 10 minutes I finally told him fine, but that I needed a bathroom break every 10 minutes and a bucket because I was still fucking vomiting. Click... I haven’t been called since. The twins are 17 now..

I don't know if these things (non randomized systems) happen also in Canada, but I've received jury duty letters 3 times already and I'm only 31. I don't know of anyone else in my family or friends that got one in their lifetime, don't know if it's just coincidence or I'm on some sort of special list but it's odd.

I've served on a jury before and I'll be truthful, I'm scared to death if I ever have to be judged by them. 50% shouldn't even be there as they can't understand a simple Truth Table. The other 25% are initially not impartial and/or will treat hypothetical situations like facts. If the other 25% don't reel the 75% in, you're looking at a defendant who's going to be convicted when they shouldn't be. 9:21 - Also, there is nothing proprietary about a jury selection algorithm: 1) Add everyone to a master list. 2) Use random number generator to pick a random person 3) Discard if already served within a year. 4) Repeat 2-3 until fill courthouse. Even in a big city like NYC, there's only 10M residents. A crappy MySQL database can handle that load. If 10% of the population is non-white, the chances of all 200 people being White is 1 in 1.4B.

'this goes across the board, you don't want smart people' sums up pretty much the entirety of jury selection in America and why in most other democracies they don't have juries, and instead they have a panel of qualified, named, accountable judges instead. Yes, historically the reason jury trials were written into our Constitution was because of the secretive, authoritarian system in place by the British before American independence. But in the 21st century jury trials have devolved to prosecutors (who have almost the entire authority to select the jury) making sure that the people on the jury are selected because they have no understanding of the law at all. In fact, as a juror you can be jailed for trying to look up judicial terms on your own that you don't understand.

The jury system is shit. Especially, in racist countries. It is considered to be the personification of democracy. We do not have democracy. We never did (representative? what the fuck is that). To evaluate a person effectively, u must love that person (group). otherwise, ur ur evaulation will be filled with ur social dogmas. That is one. 2. With us being bombarded with discriminatory media images for thousands of years and dark races being feared, hated, hunted, etc, there is not way anyone could have a clear view on darkness, including blacks of USA who r the most self-stigmatized blacks on the planet (survival is a bitch when u have to contort ur consciousness into the expectations of ur enemy).
