It’s official. As consumer debt and the cost of living increase while wages stay low, we’ve all given thought to our status as we drive off for another day of enforced labor. And now, at least in DeKalb County, Georgia, “slave” is one of the occupational options listed on the juror questionnaire.
Court Administrator Cathy McCumber told 11Alive, the questionnaire went online a month ago, but is based off an internal list that’s been used for 13 years. She says the list is 62 pages long, so she’s not sure if the word slave has always been on it, or if it was added before the questionnaire went online.
11Alive and the court learned about the problem Monday morning, after a potential juror filling out the form hit the letter “s” for sales. He says he got “slave” instead.
McCumber says the word was removed within an hour of learning about it. But figuring out how it got there, and when will take much longer. (source)
The new form for jurors has only been available online for about a month. Previously, slaves…er…potential jurors, had to fill out a paper copy and mail it in.
