A number of years ago, I had the privilege of serving as the foreman of a jury in a murder trial. That experience was, in varying degrees, inspiring, exasperating, and surreal. Despite all the corruptions that have crept into our system, and there are many, the system is still operational. It still functions. But it could function a lot more effectively if the people generally knew about the rights of juries. An informed populace means informed jury pools, and informed jury pools means informed juries.
