Where law ends, tyranny begins[i]
I was just released from jury duty yesterday. I had submitted a Request for Exclusion due to Issues of Public Interest/Public Welfare, which went unanswered. During the jury selection process, I so informed the judge of my request, which he had not seen. I volunteered a copy that I had brought along.
After supplying the judge with a copy I was given a one-on-one with the judge and lawyers. The short dialogue was as follows:
Judge: You are saying that you cannot give a fair and impartial opinion on this case?
George: No, I can’t. As you have read, I was insulted and disrespectfully treated while attempting to provide for justice. Now the court is asking for my valid opinions as a juror. I cannot participate in a judicial system that acts in such a way.
Judge: So let me clarify. You are saying that, because of these incidents, that you cannot give a fair and impartial opinion?
George: Yes, that’s right. I spent over 10 years fighting for constitutional and legal rights for homeowners and have been treated as such. I cannot participate. Your Honor, it was just about a month since the Maxwell ruling that I received a jury summons. I have not been called for jury duty in over 10 years. I get the feeling that they are out to get me.
Hidden smiles from the judge and a lawyer. I was excused. I thank the judge for making my Request part of the record, not a common occurrence. The strongly worded and angry Request can be read here.
