I guess going 15 days without food can make you sikh...:icon_cool
First, let me say this:
Why the hell would she ignore an order to show up for jury duty?? Nothing pisses off judges faster then ignoring them. Had she done 10 seconds of research she would have seen that she was ineligible for jury duty. The to top it off she gets stupid with the deputy that was their to enforce what I'm sure was a bench warrant. The judge would have likely chewed her ass for a minute, then dismissed her from jury duty....but no, dummy has to fight the deputy, then goes on a hunger strike.
I think a "time served" and a small fine could have kept this from happening.
Yeah, but she'll never have to sit on a jury. She wins!
Squaws should do as their told.
maybe she had one black parent and got a sudden case of the sikhlecell.
You couldn't open the Bombay doors fast enough to get this one out.
I think you're right. She probably would've calcutted her a break.
Her own damn fault. When working with the court system you have to be sure to dot your eyes.
She showed them.
and I broke the chain..
Too bad she didn't try and curry favors with the staff.
Vishnu with the court system that they can jail a foreigner for ignoring a summons?
Jail is the only threat that works when it comes to jury duty. You would never be able to have a jury if there wasn't some teeth in the penalty for ignoring the summons. The fact that she was foreign has nothing to do with ignoring the summons. She had been living and working here, and could have simply brought in her green card/work visa to show the courts.
i cant decide who the bigger asshole is, the holier than thou judge or the crazy woman that went on a hunger strike.
So will the new trainer allow them to give me the whole damn can of Ginger Ale?
I actually say the prison personnel are the assholes here. If she was on a hunger she should have been admitted to the prison hospital ward for treatment and counseling. The judge was doing his job, and she had ignored him before, that's a huge no-no.
i have an issue with "authority figures"
This could have had something to do with her ignoring the summons and getting stupid:
She shudras had something to eat.
Guess what happens in NYC if you ignore a jury summons?
Nothing. Nobody would ever show up at your door. Why didn't she jsut say she never got a summons? In NYC they come delivered by regular mail. You don't have to sign for it so, "I never got it."
