    But are you the peer of the defendant or the victim? In the best possible world, it wouldn't matter. But we don't live in the best possible world. I've been in jury selection and watched the attorneys reject jurors without comment. I've never seen a lawyer challenge this process. Perhaps they do sometimes? Would you raise objection if you were excluded?
