Scenes From a Courthouse

I spent a week serving the City of Los Angeles as a juror. It was a fantastic experience for me. I met some amazing Angelinos. A real cross section of people from this great city. We were brought together to do a job and everyone did their best. Lot's of wisdom and insight was given over coffee at Mc Donalds. As strange as it sounds the day after the case was over I missed the group I had grown to really care about and appreciate. They were funny and caring and responsible dedicated people. I left the experience having more faith in our system of justice and the common sense and humanity that still lives in this city.

These photos were taken on day one and reflect the mood I felt going into a new experience. I look back now and sitting in the jury room I saw these people and little did I know I would become friends and learn about their lives and hopes and dreams over the next week. A true blessing for Juror #22
