When we shared our post about an estimate of 3,500 potential jurors who may be called for the Aurora theater shooting case, we asked if readers would be interested in being part of the jury. We received plenty of negative responses, plus a number of others offering advice to people who want to get out of this duty. Here's one example.
Mike O'Shaughnessy writes:
Many people think they have to lie to get out of jury duty. You don't have to lie; tell the judge the truth. Tell him you'll make a really good juror because you can spot guilty people just by looking at them. Explain that it has to do with how far apart their eyes are. I guarantee you'll be out of that courtroom before you can say "justice sucks."
