More About the Author

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my page.

I'm a former Fire Chief from SC. I began writing at a very young age but never thought of pursuing it as a career. My passion was being a firefighter. After 18 years as a volunteer and 15 years as a career, I hung my Chief's helmet on a wall.

Now I spend my time writing a little and designing webpages. Both are hobbies and something I enjoy doing.

I'd like to invite you all to visit me at my pages below. I always enjoy meeting and talking to new people.

or my website at:


While homeschooling my kids, I realized that there weren't many options of Books specifically for some things that I wanted my kids to learn. So, I started working on some Children's Books. If nothing else, I'll have them around for my kid's to learn from. I hope yours are able to enjoy them too.

The first book, The Presidents of the United States of America, was just released on Amazon.

Title: Justice or Injustice?
Author: J.L. Hardee
Publisher: J.L. Hardee
ISBN: 978-1-4800-3515-7

"Holding the fate of someone's life in your hands is very tricky, and, when it comes to being a juror, it was something that I had never thought of, never imagined, and was not prepared for," J.L. Hardee discusses in his book, "Justice or Injustice? What Really Happens in a Jury Room."

At one hundred and fifty pages, this paperback book has a photograph of a courtroom on the front cover with two paragraphs about the book's contents and author biography with a picture on the back cover. Due to minor profanity along with discussions about sex and murder, the book would be geared for mature adults. The many punctuation and grammar errors along with repetitive wording distract from the flow of reading. There are several photographs at the back of the book involving the court, jury room and defendant with her family.

When Hardee was handed a jury summons from the Horry County Clerk of Court in South Carolina, he expected to be excused from jury duty since he is a firefighter. However, not only was he chosen as a juror, he was sequestered for weeks in a publicized capital murder trial.

From the point of being handed the summons to walking away after the verdict, the author writes the step-by-step process he encountered personally. From the mundane meal menu choices and his void-of-electronics hotel room to being cooped up for over eight hours in a small jury room without a cigarette or shamed by the jury foreperson, he voices his feelings, opinions, and protests to all the different aspects of the criminal case.

What a great book! I found myself stuck in this book, I couldn't put it down. I love the show "Snapped" on the oxygen channel, so I was excited to find a book that was told from a juror's point of view. This book gives details of the pressures that a juror goes through, and his fight to make his voice stand out. It revels great flaws in our justice system. I like how it was to the point, and easy to read. I highly recommend this book to every American, afterall, we could be in that seat in the future!!

I received this book today and as soon as I opened it I knew I wasn't going to put it down until I had finished it. Although this was a case tried in a small happens in all areas of our country. Our judicial system really needs to be investigated!! I don't know if I am more angry, mad or saddened.

Thank you Mr. Hardee for bringing to our attention what some of us have wondered about for years!

Mr. Hardee gives a glimpse from a juror's standpoint of how the so-called "judicial system" really works. I've had experiences with the "legal system" but never from a juror's standpoint. I know for a fact that judges, lawyers, police, "expert witnesses," all lie. (The so-called "expert witnesses" testify to what they are being paid to say; and unknown to most jurors, "expert witnesses" are paid big bucks.)

I remember a trial in Houston in which an expert witness was paid $100,000 by the District Attorney. After the trial (and after the defendant was convicted), it was proven that the "expert witness" lied. Not only did he not receive any punishment for perjuring himself, he was allowed to keep the $100,000. The $100,000 was tax payers' money, of course. This is your justice system.

A trial is nothing but a kangaroo court. It is not about truth, it is about which lawyer "wins" or "loses." Never mind the defendant. (And the average lay person is not aware that many lawyers are stupid as well.) The lawyer who is the most aggressive and the biggest liar most often "wins." This is your justice system.

Judges are biased. As depicted in the book, facts that would prove innocence (or in some cases, guilt, depending on the bias of the judge) are not permitted to be introduced. The facts that aren't permitted to be introduced are decided by the judge by a Motion in Limine, presented by the lawyer for both parties just before a trial begins. A Motion in Limine requests that the judge rule that certain testimony regarding evidence or information may be included or excluded. The motion is always discussed outside the presence of the jury and is always decided by a judge.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase sad. While I commend the author for commingle forward after the fact the time to stand his ground on his believes was in that hurry room. Someones life was in those 12 juries hands. As a result this person now sits behind bars for the rest of her life when the true verdict was not unanimous. Sad all the way around. Even sadder is when he immediately came forward & later when the relationship with the head juror was discovered it should have been thrown out as a mistrial. The fact that it hasn't been speaks volumes for our judicial system. I pray my life or my families life never rest in the hands of our judicial system.

Thank you for sharing your story with us. I used to believe in the death penalty. But due to watching/reading other stories of our judicial system I no longer do. While so many are guilty & are where they need to be. There are a lot of innocent locked up as well. I'm not saying the lady in this story is guilty or innocent as I do not know her case...I am only saying in general.
