      I’m sorry, but if you’re not registered to vote - I don’t want you on my jury. That said, out of jail- paid your debt to society- and get to participate in society. If you can’t vote, you can’t participate. Anyone reading this - please get registered. First step. Then participate. And for those that are registered and vote, thanks!

      I almost committed suicide when I found out I had herpes virus, I was going through a health blog when I saw how a woman testified of how Dr IGUDIA on FIblock cured her and I decided to contact him, to my greatest shock he actually cured me and now I test negative

      LoL "It's pretty bizarre to see a government official so flagrantly teaching people how to do something illegal" John Oliver clearly didn't go to US Public Schools or serve in the US Military or have a little league coach or work in any job anywhere ever. This is what people do.

      Do not make jury lists public. I get called all the time and the last thing I want is anyone from the public to try and contact me and swing me a certain direction

      People of color! Beg my pardon, wtf is that?

    19. Ezequiel Martinez

      I know the whole entire world is a sh*tty place, but the racism problem in the USA is bottomless, all kinds of things happen related to racism, and all insultingly obvious. Every time I discover some new way racism take place over there. It´s not my country but I feel rage about how racists get away all the time.

      I know this is way late, but Having each jury selection Require a reason For an exclusion. And have A committee of 5 jurors Per court room chosen randomly by there jury number Decide if The choice was constitutional or not That Added step Would only be allowed 1⁄2 hour per trial Would Correct the process as it could all be handled at the same time as when are juror Gives a reason for not being on that particular trial.

      As far as the "we don't want smart people" line, it's a well-established ground rule for juries to be generally average across the board, as they're more likely to represent the general public.

    36. Brian Sambs

      Make the Jury selection process "Blind." Instead of using the actual name of the Juror use a number, Have the potential Jurors in another room or building than the Prosecutor & Defense Attorney & Judge. Conduct the question process using e-mail or chat using Courthouse computers (remove all indicators which could imply race or ethnicity, tone of voice, ethnic names) Being a member of a jury, all is required is being over 18 yrs old, current resident in area governed by courthouse conducting trial & willingness to be impartial to legal case being tried. Right? Also, we do a census every decade. Why isn't the data from the US Census bureau used to construct jury selection pool? Also, about the census, Why is ethnicity even a criteria for the census? The more data the STATE collects other than basically a "head" count is actually immaterial other than giving means to racially taint data, right? Gerrymandering would not be party heavy if the all the census did was collect data on how many people live in each house in America, Right? (No question as to ethnicity or political affiliation)

      The "don't want smart people" part probably explains why I was struck from jury duty. I was summoned a while ago, but was never chosen. I just remember the way the lawyer perked up when I mentioned that I worked at a fast food restaurant, then his face went blank when I used words that contained more than three syllables in my answers to later questions. It was an interesting experience...

    46. R D K

      so if I dont want jury duty, I just need to wear black face. sorted.

      minorities are excluded from juries disproportionately? Maybe because they commit crimes disproportionately...or it could be the OJ Simpson effect.

      4:20 the 2 plates of the balance that Justice is holding look like cat eyes. You can kind of see his ears and nose too. I picked a bad day to quit sniffing catnip.

      I agree there are problems with the process in many jurisdictions. However, as a strict privacy advocate, I have a problem with making data public. There are too many ways the information can be collected and abused by third parties. A better approach would be to set software criteria and/or design a model software system for use in jury pool selection.

      1. leviosssa

        its kinda hard to fix a software issue if you don't have data that proves there's an issue, it's like trying to plug a leaky pipe but not being able to look at the ground for puddles, not to mention they really only need general information. you could just ask for basic information like race and approximate area of residency, but you would seriously hamper any attempts at understanding a possible bias.

    53. Hayden Mack

      I had no idea this was such a problem; I guess I need to pay more attention to the courtroom scenes in procedural dramas or the news to see how diverse their juries are. I remember from watching People vs. O.J. Simpson that his defense team pushed hard for the trial to be held in a downtown court so that the jury could have multiple black members. Makes me wish they took that kind of care more often

    54. Daniel B

      Rice should not be a factor in jury duty! Implying that we need certain races on certain juries is racist in and of itself.

    55. Justin Coccia

      Let's talk about how most Americans see jury duty as a problem. And it is in a our society, mostly because of work. I finally served on a week long jury. It was interesting. I only served i think because I was, enthusiastic, not working at the momemt, and the only non white, non Hispanic person selected. I answered more then my fair share of direct answers to both the judge and both sides of the case. The weirdest thing is I answered each question exactly how I should have, being extremely neutral and enthusiastic. I do not pretend to be smart but my answers could easy be telegraphed.

    56. B An

      Is this the problem with juries? That they select too many white people? Not that the decicion of somebody's guilt is left to people without legal training?

    57. Kirsten

      The whole jury concept is so weird. scrap it and you don't have this problem anymore :)

      1. Game Knight613

        thing is it's a good idea in concept and honestly getting rid of it is probably not a good thing

      OK OK, Let's dig into the "archives" when one of my mentors told me his mom was an archivist..I actually did believe that until years later, he told me I was lonely when he spent years teaching me that a person can be alone, but not necessarily lonely. So here's a question your segment just reminded me of ? How is it that 3 other well respected men in my life tell me this? ""I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing this for you..." another one said to me "this is all about you" and thirdly I wonder if you know why uTube became FIblock and why? Just random thoughts maybe you can help me with. {oh yeah, on that blockbuster segment, there was a poster on the backwall saying something like "we are all arrogant...somethings" (not sure of the exact wording of it, but I know someone out there would know what I mean) So funny this world is so multifactorial....Trust me, Ripley's beleive it or not, #hashtag used to be a number sign but do we use math anymore? Is that still a thing. And when your brain just runs on the spin cycle like this, is there someone out there who knows how to end it so no persons, places, or things will be harmed in the end?????My daughter told me this has got to end (and I will refer to the funniest expression I heard in my life as a comedic officianato....I'm out} Or could it be Just Stop It..... and please someone stand up and raise their hand To HELP anyone?

      John: most states ban people with felony charges" Me: that seems fair. You probably don't want someone who had committed a crime on a jury for a trial.

    79. cruisepaige

      The Constitution does not say “ ury of your peers.” 6th Amendment: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.” No peers.

        Peer means someone who has the same ability of another person

      I was called for jury duty when I was 7 months pregnant with twins(I had been called previously too); I sent in the form with my number. A few weeks later a nervous sounding man called and said I wasn’t excluded and needed to arrive, etc. After hearing him nagging me for 10 minutes I finally told him fine, but that I needed a bathroom break every 10 minutes and a bucket because I was still fucking vomiting. Click... I haven’t been called since. The twins are 17 now..

    81. Bane Rifthammer

      I love this show you are truly doing good work by telling the truth to the masses.rock on John Oliver and co

    82. Ross Vegas

      My dad is 53 and has never even been summoned for jury duty. Now that Oliver’s pointed out how fucked the system is, I wonder if there’s a reason for that or if it really is completely random?

      Anytime you may question whether a black person is telling the truth about a racist incident, please rewatch that ‘80s segment from the Philadelphia DA’s office. Shameful.
