Nope. Not Zero. LESS. And people will die.
BTW, accidents are really big since that's where transplants occur.

Most people with healthy organs die suddenly in the night. Like in a car accident. The staff has to move quick for organ transplants.

Liver call is the biggest pay day.

Edit...here is some reading you might do to get up to speed.

As a police officer, I'm all for this, sense elderly jurors tend to be more conservative.

No it isnt. That isa not and has never been a right. The amendment says it has to be made up of "an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed" and that hasa been interpreted to mean simply a good representation ofa the makeup of the community.

Well I think we get $20 a day but work doesn't pay so either I use a sick or vacation day or don't get paid.

It's a horrible idea. My Mother in law to this day thinks OJ was innocent. She isn't capable of understanding evidence in a way that enables her to conclude guilt. She thinks criminal cases are like television murder mysteries where there is some dramatic admission or surprise witness that proves guilt without having to actually think about it.
