You really need to explain what you mean.
In practice American freedom is not any more superior to European freedom. The sixth amendment for instance guarantees a fair and speedy trail by an impartial jury but we know that minorities are disproportionately targeted by police and given more harsher sentences.

Jury duty has always confused me. If I was accused of a false charge then a collection of people with no knowledge of the law are the last people I want judging me.
