If you want to show up for jury duty (most folks don't), bring a book to read. You will be waiting a long time.
Eventually, you might get selected to potentially decide a case, until the lawyers see you, and perhaps talk with you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with your "anti-establishment" attitude. It might work in their favor or perhaps not.
You might find the process, a jury of peers, fascinating.

As an aside, my mom , a pretty smart lady, was called to hear a medical malpractice case. "Blatant" she said, much later in life. The case, involving damages, ended up in the state supreme court. The decision of mom and her fellow jurors prevailed.
And my dad, after he retired, was routinely selected "at random" to be a jury member. He was an engineer, very logical, and he knew how to keep a meeting going along and not get bogged down. He also came to the table with no prejudgements. Unlike my mom (who was a liberal) and me (a screaming liberal), dad never disclosed how he voted.

So there, you got one response to the several posts you made today. I did my best. -realjohnboy-

They don't always interview you before you get picked. The three times I got picked to be a juror, nobody asked me personally a thing. On one case, they asked if anybody would be predjudiced against the persons that were charged. I raised a hand to indicate I was (in my mind I had them already convicted). I was ignored and had to serve.

@edgarblythe,
Texas.

Okay, a flippant response, edgar. Seriously, I have nothing more to add.

I got a notice for jury duty in the mail sometime last year. The date for reporting was on a day when I knew I would be on vacation and therefore out of town. (I was still living in Boston at that time.) I went online and requested a change of date. You can do that one time in Massachusetts; I don't know about other states. They said OK and posted a bunch of dates for me to pick one out. I chose a date in June, 2009, knowing I would be moving to Hawaii quite some time before then and thus out of Bay State jurisdiction. Heh-heh.

@OGIONIK,
I was called for jury duty on a murder case. I knew almost everyone involved, but they kept me as part of the jury anyway. Pay? Give me a break. You get very little pay for serving.
