The Sixth Amendment

The Sixth Amendment states that a defendant has a right to a speedy trial. I think it should be the juror who has a constitutional right to a speedy trial – You know? If I’m accused of something, well, shit, stretch it out! Keep me the fuck out of jail! But if I’m a juror, I don’t want to sit on a panel for 60, 90, 120 days. Get me the hell in and out of there! The ones making the greatest sacrifices are the jurors. What about *MY* rights?!
