ANOTHER JURY STORY. Here is another jury story about Mary Jane. She was called for jury duty, and was asked whether she would believe a police officer more or less than anybody else. Her grandfather was a policeman, and she said that she thought she might believe a policeman more. Another lady was questioned just after Mary Jane and said that she would believe a policeman less. Mary Jane and the lady soon found themselves in the back of the courtroom, stricken from the jury, and figured out what the right answer was. The lady had lived in Germany in the thirties and it had shaped her view of the police. We became close friends of the lady and her husband.
