Your Rights As A Juror
======================

As any one of us may be called to be on a jury at a criminal trial, it is important to know this fundamental right:

The jury has the right and duty to judge THE LAW as well as the facts of the case.

In other words, even if the facts show that the defendant is guilty of the charges, if the jury believes the so-called crime is not a crime in reality (e.g. most traffic, drug, tax statutes), then the jury can simply find the defendant NOT GUILTY.

This is judging the law and the jury has that right. It is our last protection against tyrannical government.

Why is this being spread on the internet? Because the judge WILL NOT tell you about this right, and the defense attorney will be reprimanded if he tries to tell the jury.

ABOUT JURY NULLIFICATION!

No wonder they pick suits, ties and little old lady’s when they pick a jury. Still, the above is a valid thing and worth keeping in mind, me thinks.

Excerpt from The Bridge, by Iain Banks. Context is wack. Maybe irrelevant. Unsure.

Behind each knee an H, from behind her behind a +, her nostrils were ,s (hope this isn’t getting too confusing for you), her waist was )(, and pride of place went to a V (in plan, prone), and ! (front elevation). Then of course she digested all this and pointed out she also had a : and regular .s (though these were puns, not signs – like I say, she was a woman of letters). Never mind; at that! I went i (she went O).
