Amber Narvaez started this petition to New York State Senate and

Hello everyone, my name is Amber. I am 21 years old. I enjoy my rights to express my opinions and feelings freely and the courts are not letting us do that.

Right now, we are required to attend jury duty. I want to give us the right to turn it down. I want to give us the right to just say no to jury duty. My goal is for us to be able to say no to jury duty and not worry about being fined or arrested and jailed for up to 30 days. LET US SAY NO AND REMOVE ALL PENALTIES.

This includes everyone in the United States.

I will make more in a day at work than the court is paying for the day. I will attain that money earned at work way faster than I will from the courts.

I want the courts to give us our rights back. It is our right to say NO and they are not letting us.

I should not have to give the court a list of reasons why I do not want to or cannot take part in jury duty.

I sat in the Jury Assembly room and asked myself these questions below, and I decided I have these rights and I want them back. So I am asking of you, If you feel the same way, sign and support this petition.

WHY DO I HAVE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, BUT NOT THE RIGHT TO DENY JURY DUTY?

WHY AM I BEING PUNISHED AND FORCED TO BE IN A COURTHOUSE FOR SOMETHING I DO NOT WANT TO DO?

WHY ARE MY RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY IN COURT?

WHY IS IT THAT IF I DO NOT SHOW UP I WILL BE FINED, OR WORSE, HAVE MY ENTIRE FREEDOM TAKEN AWAY BECAUSE THEY “CAN” ARREST ME? 

THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!

I SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO JURY SERVITUDE AGAINST MY WILL.

JURY DUTY SHOULD BE VOLUNTARY NOT MANDATORY.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO DO THIS, YES, BUT I DO NOT.

IT IS NOT MY JOB TO JUDGE ANYONE AND DECIDE WHETHER THEY GO TO JAIL OR NOT.

IT IS NOT MY JOB TO BE INVOLVED IN ANYONE’S BUSINESS.

THE PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO DO SO BECAME LAWYERS, OR COPS, OR JUDGES, etc.

I DO NOT WANT THE OBLIGATION OF DECLARING SOMEONE GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY, AND POSSIBLY SENDING THEM TO JAIL.

I AM NOT GOD, AND IT IS NOT MY JOB TO PUNISH PEOPLE.

IF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY, PLEASE SIGN AND SUPPORT THIS PETITION.

Thank you for reading this, and thank you in advance for the support.
