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.

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.

Wow...how 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.

Justice or Injustice? What Really Happens In A Jury Room by J. L. Hardy tells the story of when Hardy was a twenty-something fireman called to serve on the jury in a murder case. This book shows how a Jury foreperson, in this case a woman, can manipulate the juror's minds, and break the laws herself with impunity, just to get a guilty verdict.

I won't reveal the ending, but Hardy's point is well taken. If we can't get an impartial 12-person jury in this country, we are in a lot of trouble.
