    California moves to let felons serve on juries – Orange County Register

    Despite all of these efforts, the number of inmates hasn’t dropped dramatically enough to satisfy the state’s ruling Democrats, so they’re kicking tires on a new approach — rigging the jury system so no one gets convicted in the first place.

    This most recent push is Senate Bill 310, authored by state Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, and would allow Californians who have prior felony convictions to serve on juries.

    In a press release promoting the proposal, Skinner wrote, “SB310 will help ensure that California juries represent a fair cross-section of our communities…People with felony records have the right to vote in California. There is no legitimate reason why they should be barred from serving on a jury.”

    Currently, felons are prevented from serving on juries because of their obvious and inherent bias against prosecutors and law enforcement.
    ------------------------

    Just when you think the leftists can't dream up any crazier ideas. They may allow hardened felons to judge felony cases at trial.

    OC, until last year, was red. After Trump raised their taxes, they asked themselves why they were Republicans. Then they left.

      Orange County? Do you know what that place is like? I stayed there for a week. Good luck finding people who are NOT white. Even at the Ritz the hotel staff was white. I didn't see any Mexicans or Blacks there. Everybody I talked to seemed to like Trump or didn't want to admit voting for him. Mitt Romney lives close by in La Jolla. Everybody there is white too. Most Republican in OC are like Romney, not like Nunes.Trump raised their taxes, so they are done with the Republicans.

        Oh yeah, sure. So they're all lining up to vote for the socialists.

        :jerkstore:

        I used to think the stupid stuff you write is just trolling, but it's so constant I've finally come to the shocking realization that you really believe it.

          What's wrong with white people?
          More horse schit from Mr. ImblacksoIhaveabigpenis.
          Fun Facts:
          The entire state of California contains less than half the national average of black folks. US 14.7% California 7%
          25% of the states population are illegal aliens
          52% of the students in the state are hispanic
          Los Angeles School district is 2nd largest in the US is 72% hispanic or latino
          These demographics didn't suddenly shift in 2016
          California has had a Democrat as governor for 16 years
          You were probably better off when you used to identify as a Puerto Rican

          Who here thinks convicted felons serving on juries is a good thing?
          Who here thinks convicted felons voting is a good thing?

          Whoever you are where did you get such supreme confidence in the prison system that you think any one of these felons come out rehabilitated as productive members of society?
          Within 3 years 2/3rds are rearrested.

          Another example of the rot of the liberal mind.

            Republicans in the rest of the country were asking ourselves why federal taxpayers were subsidizing budgets in high-tax Democratic states.

            It's not just taxes. Newsome said he's not interested in making $3.5B restitution to the US government for the high-speed rail boondoggle
