Assuming I decide to go with being dismissed, the question then becomes 'how'?
Giving extreme answers during the voir dire certainly seems like an easy way to accomplish it, but a bit too easy for my tastes. The way I look at it, if I'm going to get thrown off of a potential jury panel - I'm going out in style.
I would attempt to accomplish this by making insane statements to my fellow jurors. Perhaps I could mention that I believe the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, that 9/11 was an inside job, or that I believe that jury duty is just Governmental code for the selection process of being picked to be visited by Obama's death squad? But I live in the South, so I'm sure a few of these uber-paranoid gun nuts would be likely to nod their head in agreeance with me on those two statements.
Maybe I could ask the Sheriff how long the process is going to take, and then when he tells me he doesn't know I could make an impatient comment about hoping it doesn't take too long so that I could get back to "chillin' with my sneaker crew".
Or I could just shave my head into a mowhawk, put on a pair of aviator sunglasses, and dawn a green military field jacket zipped to the throat ala' 'Travis Bickle' and see what happens.
