Jury Service

“I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”

-Thomas Jefferson

There is no greater power in our society than serving on a jury. It is democracy in its most pure form—not influenced by advertisements, money, lobbyists, or corporations. The jury embodies our founders’ vision of our country and our government—a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” The judicial system is the ONLY branch of government where the community is asked to participate in and, most importantly, it is the only branch of government that cannot be influenced by special interest or corporate money such as political donations or PAC’s.

Juries are so vitally important because they are the protectors of society. They are the enforcer of our safety rules. They determine which of our safety rules must be followed in order to keep us all safe.

The next time you are summoned to jury duty, please do so proudly, for it is the highest form of service you can bestow on your country outside of serving in our armed forces.

Instead of lamenting jury service, consider the fact that someday you might be a party in a court case that needs a jury to resolve the issues of your case. One would expect that you would want people to be in your jury pool and on your jury who wanted to be there.
