I have jury duty tomorrow. How do I get out of it without just running around yelling "nigger nigger nigger" or pissing my pants and acting like a crazy person.
I just want to be left alone to watch anime and play vidya in peace. Not wake up at 7am to sit in a court room for eight hours for weeks.
I was thinking I would tell them I'm not good with confrontation and would be easily lead, or silenced by more intimidating jurors. But I'm not sure if this will backfire or not.
Won't they make me prove this? Also I should have added that this is jury selection. So I need a way to be disbarred hopefully from ALL possible cases, not just reshuffled into another.
Even if you don't do anything, odds are you may or may not get fully drafted. The way that jury duty goes is that they have a first draft of like 100s of people and filter out people who have medical conditions, criminal records, serious obligations, etc. and then once they have eligible people they randomly select 12 people from that batch.
To be safe, just be like "I believe that the police state and justice system is corrupt and everyone should be free" when they call your number up and ask you if you have any reason to be exempt.
Or just fart really loudly.
I think some states have a law that if a jury member knows that by law jury has the last say on if the target is guilty or not and that jury can not be punished for their desision than such members are not allowed to be in the jury.
That seems weird, but I guess I'll keep it in mind.
I'm a dirty Canadian, more specifically from Ontario. I'll look and see if it counts here, it should, right?
But I would rather watch an anime about detectives or play Ace Attorney Online!
This, but don't blurt it out because then you'll jeopardize the entire jury pool (they'll all look it up) and you can get in deep shit. Try to catch the person in charge on their own and let them know discreetly.
It's pretty much a chat room structured around Phoenix Wright. But /v/ goes all out, creating google documents for evidence, testimony, etc.

It sounds pretty shitty, having to wake up early, walk through shitty winter weather to sit in a room all day listening to people argue, while you don't even get paid unless the case goes on for 100 days.
