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.
