Dog gets sent a Jury Duty notice
« on: April 15, 2014, 01:58:35 pm »
I just saw on the news that a german shepherd got sent a jury duty notice. It happened due to a computer glitch. German shepherds are pretty smart. I think he could have done the job. Of course he didn't have to show up. Which leads me to wonder if a Furry could get out of jury duty by saying "Sorry, I'm not human. I'm a fox" Or whatever your species happens to be. I imagine that they'd expect this theoretical Furry to prove it in which case he shows up in a fursuit and says "Told ya"
He'd probably get tossed in jail for contempt or something. Unless the Judge had a sense of humor. In which case he gets off just for having the guts to do it.

You humans need to refine, alter, corral codify and measure things yes? Very well. I shall use your wristwatch to count out ten of your seconds. I suggest you use that time to run. For at the end of it I shall come for you and I will catch you and we shall measure the duration of your death... In screams.

Been on jerry duty. Well the first part of it. Wasn't selected. All they asked for was nice clothing and no tennis shoes. A fur suit would fit right it. However showing up to a government building with a full mask on would be a great way to get lots of attention.  As long as you stay conscious you'll be able to count how many times you got tasard before you hit the floor. :)
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

True that. Pretty much the same as a bank. But I suppose if they let a person serve in a Star Trek uniform they'd let someone serve in a Fursuit sans head or ears and a tail.

They are among us!
I have no idea what I am doing.

Some hospitals have therapy dogs. Maybe this is something similar, but for courtroom situations. The bailiff had better have some treats and there will need to be a chew toy in the jury room to accommodate the dog. Just sayin'.

He probably got off because the defendant was a catburglar. :3

I recently got a notice to apply for jury duty. Shouldn't need to report until after the New Year.
