The draft and mandatory just service are unconstitutional.The U.S.
Constitution forbids involuntary servitude.We need to change our
constitution, or we need to align our tradition with the Constitution.
"The judge now has the option of calling the 36 no-shows into court and
asking them why they didn't show up."No, it should not be
an option. Every no-show violated the law and should be prosecuted and
punished. If names were pulled from voter registration lists, they
should also check to verify the registrations are not fraudulent, and see if any
fraudulent registrants voted.
Oh come on people. No more delays. Children need to be protected.
Speaking only to the jury situation. If it can be shown that the "no
shows" actually received the jury summons, then they should be held in
contempt of court, and fined. But this may be a bit hard to show. Failing to
prove they received the summons, there really isn't much you can do.I
won't address the rest of the situation, as I'd really prefer not to
get "forever banned" from these comments.
