Dog receives jury duty summons

Recently man’s best friend has been called upon to perform duties beyond simple unconditional love and loyalty. Earlier this week, there were reports thata canine in England was invited to vote in the upcoming European Parliament elections. Now, canine civic responsibility has hit the States.

On Friday, a jury duty summons was sent to “IV Griner,” a New Jersey German Shepherd. As reported by WKYW CBS 3, the name on the summons is the same name that appears on the pooch’s vet record. IV’s owner, Barrett Griner told the station, “Nobody in my house is named IV except the German Shepherd.”

After the initial shock, Barrett, whose full name is Barrett Griner IV, figured out that “IV” was entered as his first name on the summons through a clerical error.

He was right. The notices are computer-generated in Trenton’s District Court offices as Dennis Moffa, Cumberland County Judiciary Coordinator, told WCAU NBC Philadelphia. "This happens many times…I think that the computer probably randomly picks some things that are probably not as on point as they should be," said Moffa.

Aren’t jury summons produced from voter registration lists?

Looks like a very intelligent dog to me. He would never have voted for Obama.

I bumped into an old friend from HS and college the other night, we got into a spirited conversation about voter ID laws. He is an actor in NYC, and has been brainwashed....

I wish my two dogs could vote, they hear Obama’s voice and they bark, and its a pissed off bark not a “I want to go outside and play” bark

And what database was accessed/sold in order to enroll ol’ “IV”? Vet’s office, online pet meds business? Or how about the local DOG LICENSING/voting division at the town office. Hmmm.

“I wonder if the dog has voted recently...”

100% for the dog eater. Most places don’t even ask for an SS #

Too many odd things going on with the regime. Hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but this all can not be a coincidence. Hard to fathom at times...

OMG, what would happen to me if they mined our vet or pet-med records for the dog’s name, got into this situation, then found out the dog is NOT licensed? Yeah, she can somehow serve on jury, but she isn’t legal! LOL

Pretty soon the SOBs will be telling me it’s time to get to get my hair cut.

We really all ought to get off FB, Twitter, etc. Why give out this info for free so some left winger can make billions?

Stop that. His ownwer is a Dem.
IF he's good enough and informed enough to vote, he's good enough to be a juror.

Sure, people post pics and names of their pets on social media, but that’s a time-wasting hunt and peck method when the PTB can simply pad the voter rolls by merging the dog licensing database with the voter registration list.

Easy to see how IV could end up with a jury summons. Probably been voting absentee for years. Drip drip. :-\

The poor tricked dogs see the box marked “Demoncat” and all say, “Well duh!”

The puppy would make one hell of a better jurer and voter than most people I have met over the last 35 years, probably a lot smarter than most Americans under the age of 60.

Reminding me again of why I patronize a vet in the next county over.

That dog licensing notice that arrived after everybody got their rabies vax? Phfffffffft!
