The American Jury system was introduced to public in 1735 when the idea was brought to the United States from England. Countries that have never had a jury system, or have had one in the past, have turned to citizens to decide criminal cases. The jury system could be helpful, but it can also be a huge problem in a serious case. A Jury is a group of citizens which hears the testimony in legal disputes and determines what it believes is the truth. Jury trials should remain an option. Without Juries in my opinion it would be totally unfair to go off of what one person thinks. There are 3 main reasons why the jury system should remain an option. The jury system could be helpful in very difficult cases. One reason why jury trials should remain an options is it helps promotes civic virtues. Civic virtue is morality or a standard of righteous behavior in relationship to a citizen’s involvement in society. The jury system helps citizens get involved with the community.
