Been there, same thing happened to me. I have since come to the conclusion
that this particular situation presents one of the few opportunities get
direct and personal access to the reins of power. So the thing to do is to
tell them what they want to hear, get on the jury, and do what you consider
to be the right thing.

I recommend this to anyone reading this post, and recommend that you pass
the word to anyone who might ever find themselves with the opportunity to
serve on a jury. If you care, DO NOT tell them "the truth", they'll boot
your independent-minded self as far away from decison-making responsibility
as they possibly can. Spin it so you get in a position of power (again, if
you care), and then do what's called for.
