Lenny Bruce Nailed It First, Years Ago….

March 3, 2011 at 1:46 am 1 comment

Lenny Bruce (google him) had a quote that was something like “In the halls of justice, the only  justice is in the halls”. I have to say “believe” as I’m going straight from what’s left of my memory. Yesterday, I had my day in court and managed to get released from being part of a jury of 12 people that weren’t smart enough to get out of it, and now I’m free to continue my search for paying work in a film industry that’s rapidly circulating the bowl on its way to the sewer.

Here’s another Lenny Bruce quote worthy of your consideration:

“Take away the right to say fuck and you take away the right to say fuck the government.”

But I digress, back to the “Halls of Justice”. I had wanted to pull off an idea that I had, where my answer to the question “Can you be impartial, non-prejudiced by your past experiences” that I expected was going to be asked of me by the judge, the prosecutor, or the attorney representing the defendant was going to be “Is the defendant white?”.

As it turned out, I (prospective juror #6) didn’t have to drop down to that level, I was given an elective dismissal by the prosecutor who I have to assume, because I asked a lot of pointed questions, may have felt that I wasn’t going to be an easy sell on the guilt of his prime target, one smarmy looking bastard, a.k.a., “the defendant”.

As it turns out, the prosecutor was wrong, I would have sent this shit for brains off to be the wife of some lucky prisoner for the next 20 to 30 years, but in the words of Paul Simon, “who am I to spit against the wind?”. So I packed up my tent and quickly got my fat white ass out of the building in possession of a pass that will give me at least a year before I have to deal with this again.

    Having never gotten that far in the jury selection process in all of my 53 years, I think I might add to the “Is the defendant white” question, and/or a Libertarian, and/or a member of the John Birch Society? Congrats on the years “pass”.
