Jury Duty In A Criminal Case

I just got home from jury duty. I was interviewed by a judge for a panel on a criminal case. It's unlikely that I could ever serve on such a case again, given my negative experiences with the police and the criminal justice system. The judge was smart and didn't go there in front of other potential jurors when he talked to me. Instead, we had a private chat and that was the end of that. Some police are corrupt. The adversarial judicial system is prone to certain abuses. Attorneys can care more about winning than in seeking justice. Unfortunately, I've experienced these sorts of abuses first hand.
