Respect The Jury System

Respect The Jury System

In the 1700’s England did strongly opposed permitting colonists unrestricted jury trials. The Revolutionary War was fought, to no small extent, to achieve the right to trial by jury. The United States Constitution was almost rejected because it did not include a right to jury trial. The Seventh Amendment cured that problem, guaranteeing citizens of the new country the right to jury trial. Each state that joined the union then included the right to jury trial in their own state constitutions. Patriots fought and died, in no small measure, to secure this basic right that places the powerful and the powerless on equal footing before their neighbors when settling disputes and prosecuting alleged crimes.

Over the last few decades, many have somehow lost respect for the jury system. It is fitting to remember its origin, its purpose, and its importance, from time to time.
