Jury Nullification - Last Stand Before Armed Resistance?Submitted by hawkiye on Fri, 02/22/2013 - 03:24
Let me just say I am not sure why more people in the liberty movement do not pick this up and run with it? Working through the political system seems to be broken yet all we hear is contact your rep or vote more republicans in. And we continue to get screwed. Or if there is any headway it is a long slow process and usually compromised to almost uselessness. That is just intolerable to many and is a reason why a lot of people do not want to be involved in the political process and feel powerless to change anything.
However with the power of the jury the people have immediate power to nullify bad laws and by-pass all the politics and old boy networks etc. It is a quick easy way to tell the politicians NO we will not stand for this non-sense! Why do you think there has been such a dumbing down of knowledge of the true power of the jury over the last century? People who don't have the time or inclination to be involved in the political process can participate in Jury Nullification and thus in restoring liberty. We have a potential army for liberty at our disposal we only have need to educate them. That makes sense doesn't it?
Jury Nullification is well established in American Jurisprudence Prohibition perhaps being the most famous law nullified by Juries till it was repealed. We owe it to ourselves to make Jury Nullification a major tenant of our attack on the enemies of freedom because it is perhaps our best weapon in this war. Where else do the people have any power now days to prevent bad and unconstitutional laws from harming us? We should take take the time to study this issue and start promoting it because it's time we used our real power isn't it!
Every home in American needs to b educated on Jury Nullification!
"It is not necessary for a state legislature to “adopt or officially recognize” jury nullification. All that is necessary is for a critical mass of the people to know about their power and know how to use it. In addition, even if a law exists, judges will still lie. Indiana and Georgia has jury nullification in their constitutions, yet judges still lie, jury tamper, try to trick jurors, often succeeding. Only an educated and confident jury pool guarantees that judges will not suppress jury nullification. Very important -- lobbying the legislature about jury nullification has often confused the general public, making many think we cannot nullify bad laws till the legislature passes a new law. We have our power now, we simply have to know it and use it. POLITICIANS ARE NOT THE SOLUTION – YOU ARE."
Not sure where this came from but it is in some info I have archived.
