I think our jury system is inadequate.  Look at the OJ Simpson trial to see what I'm talking about.

How would you make it better?

Periodically, people have railed against juries (or the exclusion of illegally obtained evidence) because sometimes guilty people are set free, but the alternative is that innocent people will be incarcerated or executed.

Anyway, if you have some thoughts about how to improve on juries, let's hear them. Thanks.

Does Hungary count as a 'Western' democracy?

Anyway, it appears what they have is a hoax-

Notice the demonstrators say "We want to live in a state of law..."

Juries should be made up of intelligent people, not idiots.  How can that be achieved?  I really don't know.  Maybe a logic test?

At one time, "progressives" thought it would be a good idea to sterilize stupid people. After a time, we would have only smart juries! Cheesy

That takes longer than to just kill them outright... Cry

As usual, "progressive" government is operating without legal limits in order to make America better!
