I was recently excused from a jury after stating to the prosecutor that both 
the practice of convicting someone with intent to commit a crime, when they did 
not have the intent, and the practice of using inmate testimony against the 
defendant, were legal concepts I could not accept. Also said that I could not 
automatically trust the testimony of a police officer (due to life experience). 
I wasn't belligerent, and framed my responses clearly and respectfully. Gotta 
stand up for our rights - no one else will.

On the other hand, I am very grateful to have a police force in place, though 
there are obvious limits on their power.
