Sheriff’s deputies in Wisconsin plucked random residents off the streets last week after a judge ran out of potential jurors.

Wisconsin deputies snatch residents off streets for jury duty after judge invokes obscure law
I didn't know they could do this. I think it is wrong and shouldn't be allowed. Your out shopping and the next thing you know your forced to do jury duty. While I think its a citizens duty to do jury duty it shouldn't be brought about in this way.

I have to wonder how many other crazy laws there are on the books that we would object to.

Thoughts?

Where I live, there's still a law on the books that says establishments that serve alcohol must also provide a place to tie and water your horse. I'm just waiting for city police to start suddenly handing out fines. lol! As for suddenly imposed Jury duty, I would rebel by intentionally failing the screening questions. Throw in some racism and UFO propaganda and I reckon I would be sent on my way pretty quick. :D
