2. there should have been 12 jurors, not only 6. I think there should have been more diversity too.

To me this shows the prosecution didn't seem to care too much about whether they won. I would serve on a jury myself. I have been called once (well not just once, but I used to move a lot and one county would call me when I was a resident of another.) I went when I was called and watched the line of folks begging off. I was lucky enough to have my sister available to watch my small child. I was tempted to bring her as I did not have any babysitter or anything being a stay at home mom. But I went. And watched that line of folks with their excuses. We watched our video and then sat. And waited. Went upstairs and sat outside the courtroom and waited. And then they reached a deal on the case and we never had to do anything. And I am good for five years.
