    No I never have been. I’ve never even been called upon. I think it’d be fun though.

    Yep. Murder. Gang murder, to be exact… between, let me think, the Gangster Disciples and the Latin Kings, I think. Two kids (somewhere between 18-25) walking down a street in the wee hours of the morning (2 AM-ish), and a car pulls up next to them. Driver rolls down the window, there’s a short verbal exchange (greetings, like “hey” “howareya”), then the driver opens fire. Wounded one guy and killed another.

        Yep. Life in Chicago. I think I was in college at the time, on Summer Break, and I didn’t have a job yet, so when I was called, I was happy to serve. It was really interesting. One of those situations where you know the guy is guilty, and all the evidence just keeps piling up against him – eyewitnesses, fingerprints, the whole nine. And then the defense gets up and says, “The cops beat him up.”

        Well, ok, that’s wrong, but it doesn’t mean that he didn’t kill the other guy. We found him guilty. Afterward, we found out that this was like #10 in this guy’s string of gangland killings.

    No. I’ve been summoned a few times, but I got off because it was against state law for a lawyer to serve on a jury. Then they changed that law, but I begged off by saying that I am the sole earner and parent to my kids and have a key position in my company, so I couldn’t be spared to hang out in the jury box indefinitely.

    I agree it would probably be fun to serve, but I’m always so busy, and you know I’d still have to do my work, so my kids would be the ones to suffer. Maybe someday.

    No, and have never been called upon.

    Jason got summoned to go recently, but was never called in. He called every night, to see if he had to go in the next morning, and never had to.

    I’ve been summoned twice, but never chosen.

  6. Morocco says:

    I wasn’t selected, but it was about a teen driver who hit a pedestrian.

  7. Phyllis says:

    I’ve been summoned several times, but called upon to actually serve.

  8. Phyllis says:

    oops, the word never should’ve been between “but” and “called”. Guess this take us back to the sign for today, huh? LOL!
