Sigh, just turn the thing in and then when you get the next form to fill out with all the questions that the lawyers submit, be sure to say things like you are racist and you think that if the police arrest them, they must be guilty and you won't get on the jury.

If you get a summons and don't want to show up, just write across it that you choose not to participate and send it back to the court. That is what Obummer did in Georgia. He was summoned to court as a defendant and just told the court he didn't want to participate in the proceedings, and didn't show up or send a lawyer to represent him. Nothing was done, no contempt of court, nothing. What is good for him should apply across the board for all.

Gosh, the circuit court is NOSY these days. What else will they next ask? I don't mind answering a few questions, but being a potential juror should come with protections, one of which is a degree of privacy. It is off-putting.
