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.
Somebody call burner and tell him to read bringer's posts if he wants to know what's happening in the lounge without reading all the threads.
