The inmates run the asylum.

Manson and Jim Jones and Bill Ayers won.

I guess that would be a jury of peers.

The Sixties Radicals now running California's government are still trying to "Burn it all down, man!"

And they are getting pretty close.

Subversion of representative government

America will be ruled by a military junta in the end, just like in third world countries, a domestic one or a foreign one, matters not, but it will happen at this rate.

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

So what. Crimimal defense attorneys probably have the same biases. A lot of blacks also have these biases, so exclude them too. Prosecutors and law enforcement have biases against the accused.

I know you don’t want to hear this but U.S. has the highest per capita rate of incarceration, higher than Russia and China and way higher than Western Europe.

Ok, ready for incoming.

No flames from me. But let’s restore all the rights to felons who have served their time and fulfilled all other obligations demanded by the courts for their convictions. Starting with 2nd Amendment protections.

People refuse to accept that Broken Windows policing works.

Sure, I can give you that, and China is still more repressive police state than US. But we are way higher than Western Europe and the anglophone nations.

It’s the war on drugs BS mostly and heavy penalties for white collar “crime”. Elites get a pass.

Is there any way to purge a state from the union? Or at least parts of it?

Western Europe is significantly more monocultural. They’re working on changing that.

Japan is much more harsh on criminals, has very little crime.

The quality of Florida juries took a big hit years ago when the juror pool went from registered voters to registered drivers.

Too many people don’t understand the importance of intelligent jurors.
