BTR: Jury service has always been a bee in my bonnet, I've been called for the last 3 years. What rubs me up the wrong way is that a law abiding person has to take time off work because of some filthy scum criminal and I can't remember 100% but pretty sure if you do manage to get some compensation for your time is below minimum wage... so you are being screwed over by the criminal and the govt.
HAHA That would be an opinion if you are ever forced to go, you should make heard. Ensures you get contempt of court at the least :)
Pretty much along the lines of, if the police arrested them, they are guilty. If not of this, of something else, and it all balances out in the long term :)
