    You made a comment about American and British language, but you didn't make the obvious and relevant firer statement that ASL and BSL are completely different languages...

    Can you research on your colleagues' views to the Deaf?

    If some of them never met the Deaf people before, do they feel comfortable to represent their Deaf client?

    If they are surprised to see two signing interpreters for the Deaf Juror to be are appearing at the interview, will they pick a qualified Deaf juror?

    Do they think the Deaf is capable to serve the jury?

    What do they think when a Deaf juror to be did not answer to a question "How many of you are disabled?" when a Deaf juror did not stand up or raise his hand to say Yes. To me, I do not believe that I am disabled. It is because I use ASL to communicate and use the sign language interpreter in the hearings.

    I have a question for you: Should I stand up to answer Yes but have to explain my point to that question to the Plantiff and Defendant's lawyers like what I said above?

    I strongly believe that I am still a victim by the government agency, who ignored my serious complaint of my innocence. They refused to provide me the interpreter. They said the documents the opponents gave them are enough and ignored my evidence. Do they think deaf people are scrap goats like what cops and others think AfroAmericans are scrap goats according to the OJ case in the past? They listened one side not both, or the deaf's side.
    I am honest that I never meet or speak with a doctor. but I was kicked out of the doctor's office. My deaf friend was her patient back in 2008. They simply dismissed my complaint.
