All too many of us look on jury service as a burden and something to be avoided if at all possible. After all, jury duty takes time and can be boring and without purpose or meaning, according to some folks. Fortunately, most American citizens still look on jury service as one of the most important civic duties a person can perform. The protection of rights and liberties, as well as the redress of wrongs, is achieved because of the jury system. To say that it’s an important public service is an understatement. That is why the jury system is protected by the U.S. Constitution.
It has been said that in this country a jury is really our final check. It’s the people’s last safeguard against unjust laws and tyranny. I can think of nothing more important than serving on a jury and I sincerely hope and pray that our readers share that belief. Only when the public lets elected officials know how they feel – and keep the pressure on them – will the jury system regain its rightful place in the U.S. justice system.
