Juries can see the defendant and make judgments based on factors not important to the case
Not all defendants present themselves well and are judge negatively
Some defendants present themselves very well and are judged positively
Juries of private citizens do not know what they are doing
Juries are asked to make judgments on law they have little understanding of
Juries are not trained to ask the correct questions concerning how the lawyers conduct their cases (i.e. did the lawyers ask leading questions, important questions, questions that mattered to the case, etc.)
Juries make too many judgments based on gut feelings.
Compromising justice to save money
Using untrained private citizens as juries saves money, but compromises justice
A trained juror system made up of both volunteers and paid
All jurors would receive training on how to make a fair judgment and to give reasons for their judgments
The defendant should not be seen by the jury
The trial can be made up of many separate parts made up of narrowly focused questions and video presentations by the lawyers and judges
Each part can be judge by different randomly chosen jurors who know nothing about the defendant or the overall trial
The trial itself can be managed by a judges who in turn is actively watched over by other managing judges
Certainty is never absolute; embrace doubt.
There are many great ideas, but most of them are wrong.
You are revealed by the questions you ask and by the ones you don't ask.
