Sneaky bastards!

Here in GA we are entitled to an impartial jury. That being the case, if someone declared that they believed the law charged was 'just' without hearing the facts of the case, you could dismiss them because they were partial. If the Judge says you have to agree with him/her on whether the law is just or being used correctly, then you should be able to declare a mistrial as the Judge is showing partiality and assuming the role set for the Jury.

I think we ought to promote a National use your Right to a Jury Trail Week or month. Get everyone who can manage the pain in the ass of going to trial, to do so. I saw some post sometime back that said if just 3% of people who had committed a victimless or crime against the State (Tickets, fines, etc) went to trial, it would crush the system.
