Seeing as how most judges are up their own arse in their own fiefdom,without an iota of understanding of how victims of insanely violent criminals are suffering,could this thread be retitled "Should dead people serve on a jury?

From Intrepid's quote:
http://www.flac.ie/news/2013/04/15/legal-rights-body-disappointed etc ...
FLAC (Free Legal Advice Centres) today welcomed the Law Reform Commission's call to widen the pool of potential jurors and make it more representatives, but it regretted that the Commission had not recommended positive measures to include deaf and blind persons on juries.

Which made me wonder: is there any deeply blind or deaf member on the Constitutional Convention ?

deeply blind or deaf member? you mean a member of the Deaf community or a blind person?

There aren't any members of the Deaf community that I know of on the convention.

I don't know about blind people.

Someone said :

I mean a member of the convention who is not "partially" deaf and/or blind.

Such a distinction is only relevant to hearing people who like to measure levels of hearing loss. you are referring to hard of hearing people who are not members of the deaf community, I think, who do not sign.


Yes, as I said earlier, for members of the Deaf community, who range from partially deaf to totally deaf people, with all levels of speaking abilities and signing abilities, there are no representatives on the Convention.

Is there a mistake there? I took to mean a profoundly Deaf person.

yes, I refered to BlaH's terminology, when he said:
I mean a member of the convention who is not "partially" deaf and/or blind

He meant a profoundly deaf person, yes, but when it comes to the Deaf community, Deaf people are deaf. Partially Deaf or Profoundly Deaf.

Partially deaf, as in being a member of the deaf community, or hard of hearing as in not being a member of the deaf community? I know, splitting hairs here, but we make that distinction in the Deaf community, and hard of hearing people do, in their circles as well. (Simply check one of many FB groups.)
