Posted on 04/30/2009 9:54:52 AM PDT by DFG
There are probably better ways to avoid jury duty than the approach recently taken by a Montana man. After Erik Slye, 36, received a jury notice earlier this year, he filed a notarized affidavit seeking to be excused from serving on a District Court panel in Gallatin County. Slye's caustic affidavit, which he prepared with help from his wife Jennifer, can be found below.

Though it’s funny ... it’s misguided IMO. Jury nullification may be one of our last weapons against the tyranny of the government
“I’d rather count the wrinkes on my dog’s balls than sit on a jury.”
All he had to ask was, “Is this going to be a fully informed jury?”.
Deep inside, anyway.
His momma must be so proud.
I like this line:
“I would rather count the wrinkles on my dogs balls than sit on a jury”
I always comply with jury duty....then I sit in the pool room with my bible, Rush Limbaugh book, or some other appropriate reading material in plain sight. For some reason, I’m never selected.
Actually, given the Carter/Clinton and soon to be Obamaloon judges, what is the point of a jury?
Easy guide to justice.
1) If defendant is supported by liberal causes, is an illegal alien, or a real crook ...they will be found innocent.
2) If defendant is actually innocent and is a Caucasian or Asian, they will be found guilty.
Oh, that constitution? Fogettedabowdit.
There - we’ve saved the system a whole lot of money.
Yep, that means juries consist of people who weren’t smart enough to figure out how to get out of doing jury duty.
I know judges who would seat him to teach him a lesson.
Maybe we can take this and use it when Obama wants to make us buy a government made car, paint a bridge or have one of our children serve with his brown shirts.
I couldn’t do this because my dog has been neutered.
The attorneys see to that.
Our county sent out a jury informations package. It included a form to be filled out and sent back. One of the questions was how do you feel about sitting on a jury. I pointed out that I had been a victom of crime, the suspect was released with a wrist slap from the court and if I was on a jury, that would never happen.
Ten years later and I haven’t heard back from them.
I fail to see the humor in it. The guy’s a jerk to write something like that and a moron for thinking he wasn’t going to be held accountable for it, an ingrate for not accepting his responsibilities.(I wonder how he would react if he were trying to put together a jury) He should have jailed!
Fifteen words to the judge during voir dire: “I got no problem with the Negro [White, Mexican, or other ethnic group] man as long as he knows his place”.
Say it with a thick East Texas accent and it works every time.
I bet you're proud to pay your taxes too.
I agree ... and not for the reasons that the government would like ...
