I am juror number 2104.
Still in the jury room. The verbal orientation from our robust hostess is more about procedures and emergencies. Funny how little is said about justice.
The video portion of the orientation brings comedy. Not because it is funny, but because the DVD doesn't work. How many helpful citizens does it take to fix a DVD player? Apparently, more than we had - they never do fix it. I just watch, I find it refreshing to watch people help each other. We watch the orientation on VHS. Ah, now we learn about justice.
We have an important job to do. We must make or break a life.
Like good little soldiers, all 40 of us head into the courtroom. Some people look a little scared or just annoyed, but as a Law and Order junkie, I love every minute of it.
