Impartial, Neutral Juries Are Non-Existent

Standard

Phrases to remove from your vocabulary: impartial, neutral, jury of your peers, and legal system has spoken.

As someone who spent five years as a jury consultant I can tell you with full confidence that there is no such thing as an impartial jury, jurors do not check their biases at the courthouse doors, you will never be judged by a jury of your peers, and the legal system rarely speaks in the name of justice.
