Interesting. Most people disclaimed bias, and said they did not want impaired drivers on their street, around their kids, and that each person handles alcohol differently.
However, most said if the defendant was proven to have consumed alcohol, and was proven to be impaired by that alcohol, then even though that meets the legal definition of intoxicated, they still could not find someone guilty of violating the law.
This is a bias and a sympathy towards the defendant, saying it is okay to drive drunk if your BAC is under the legal limit.
Therefore, they don't have the ability to follow the charge of a juror.
Out of twenty jurors, we could not get 6 valid jurors.
Therefore, the panel is busted, and we are all released.
