    Juror removed from the box for posting on facebook

    MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. A judge removed a juror from a trial in suburban Detroit after the young woman wrote on Facebook that the defendant was guilty. The problem? The trial wasn't over. Hadley Jons, of Warren just north of Detroit, could be found in contempt when she returns to the Macomb County circuit court Thursday.
    Jons, 20, was a juror in a case of resisting arrest. On Aug. 11, a day off from the trial and before the prosecution finished its case, she wrote on Facebook that it was "gonna be fun to tell the defendant they're guilty."

    This kinda pisses me off. Serving as a juror is probably one of the most serious undertakings the average citizen participates in. No matter how good a job the officers and the prosecuters have done, it is still up to the jury to decide the facts of the case, which often can result in taking away someones freedom and money, and occasionally even there life. For someone to make a decision before everyone has their say could have dire consequences. Can't these people take just one thing seriously for once?

    The trial was almost over, so no point in getting kicked off it. Idiot is more likely.

    Idiot.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
