Phil Mocek had been on trial for four misdemeanor charges, including failing to obey an officer and concealing his identity at Albuquerque International in November of 2009.

I think informed and independent juries are the best and last hope for frustrating tyranny. If juries will not convict innocent people, the tyrants are reduced to the most obvious kinds of abuses, with no pretense of legitimacy. We would do well to spend time passing out literature at court houses. I confess, I have never done it even once.

Juries need to know that the judge will lie to them about what they "must" do, and that the defense attorney cannot exercise the freedom of speech the 1st Amendment is supposed to guarantee, for fear of contempt of court or worse. They must know there is the chance that the judge disallowed information or arguments the defense wanted them to hear.

Can you believe

that the scumsuckers dared to charge anyone with "failure to obey an officer"??  Now we have laws that command us to obey any order given to us by a uniformed thug? 

Anybody care to solve this problem:  I do not have a right to order you around.  Nor can i delegate a right I do not have, to have somebody else order you around.  Ten million people like me do not have that right, either.  But politicians think they do.  So tell me: whence does their authority derive?
