Pick a civilized country you think doesn't have some atrocious quirk in their legal system.

That said, I don't disagree, I think I'm trying to say that there's no such thing as a civilized country if we're basing that on the sensibility of their legal system. Everything is on some spectrum of terrible to tolerable to the average person. The average person is not called to a grand jury, so it's not something they get riled up about.

'atrocious quirk' is quite an understatement when you discribe the deficiencies of the us legal system.

Atrocious is a pretty strong word in my opinion. That said, I don’t disagree :)
