Jury Duty

So, um...  I hung a jury today.  Yeah... Eleven not guilty, one guilty.  That was me. 

Because* when you call three separate people and tell them you are going to kill someone, I don't think it falls under the category of "venting".

*This is a vast oversimplification of the facts of the case. The defendant is seeking anger management, if he can afford it through his insurance.  (And because he is a veteran, I made the specific recommendation to his attorney that they put him in touch with the VA, because they have services specifically tailored to his needs.)

Miss you, hun. Sorry 'bout the jury duty, that's never fun. :(

You do what you think is right, never mind the other eleven. That's why they have that many jurors.

Sounds like you had an interesting week, at any rate. And not many people can actually say that they hung a jury. That makes you special!

That's kind of impressive. Here's hoping that everyone involved winds up coming out of this for the better, which is about all you can hope for with a case like that.

So that's where you've been. = D

I have to say based on what you've said I'd have voted the same way and props to you for sticking to your conscience.
