If you are "disengaged" you simply can't perform jury duty. Use this letter - "Thanks for the opportunity of jury duty, but having done my research, I am disinterested. The accused is entitled to a fair trial, and a fair trial is not a disengaged juror. A fair trial for the accused shouldn't mean an unfair trial for victims.

I know that police, the DPP and lower court magistrates heard all the evidence and believe there is a case to answer. I would hate to have to fall back on their judgement. However, if judges become more accountable and there be a search for the truth, I would be more than happy to become involved in the future. Yours sincerely..."
