Do your jury duty.

Manhattan Criminal Court:
The boring introductory speech takes about 45 minutes, and should begin relatively on time. Therefore, coming 45 minutes late is no big deal.

If you have a deferment, don't waster your time at the criminal court. Go straight to 60 Centre Street room 139. The line can get busy, so try to come at a good time.

Who knows how many real juries might look like that, just without the "Henry Fonda" to lead the way.

Unfortunately you could make the same video of juries sending away innocent & letting murderers loose. How many times have jurors based their decision on the person's community/color etc. Or if the victim is crying they'll have sympathy when it could just be a shpiel. & how many times has a juror been interviewed afterwards & said that s/he really feels it's the other way. Also there are lots of people that go in there hating the cops/law or just wanna go home. You're talking about possibly putting someone away for life.

Yes, our judicial system, as should any civilized judicial system, clearly prefers to err on the side of letting criminals go than locking up innocent people. Remember, a suspect can always choose to be tried by a judge if he prefers.

I must say though, any frum jew from Rockland County who gets federal jury duty should serve, they might end up on the trial of the people who got picked up last week....
