Book Description

This story is about a small town boy that was thrown into jury service on a highly publicized Capital Murder trial in Myrtle Beach, SC. It involves the case of: The State of SC vs. Kimberly Renee Poole.

This book isn't about the murder, or the guilt or innocence of the accused. Its about the experiences of a juror and his fight to standup for his beliefs. This book will put you right in a jury seat during this trial so that you can experience his plight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ins and Outs of a Jury May 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunned January 3, 2013
Format:Paperback
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must read January 2, 2013
Format:Paperback
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 town....it 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing insight into our jury system January 28, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book offers an amazing insight into our jury system. Jurors never really say much, usually just "guilty" or "not guilty". Even after the trial is over, jurors are rarely willing to speak to the media about a case. For those of us who have never served, the book offers a glimpse as to what it is really like. This an amazing book by a man of courage who wishes to speak the truth about the shortcomings of our system.

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.
