They will send you home if

They will send you home if you say I believe in Jury Nullification. If the case sounds interesting, don't tell them that. Or you can just shout out loud to the judge, "Go Fuck Yourself Asshole".




My experience

During jury selection the judge asked if I can follow directions as given.
I asked him to be more specific.
He asked me if he said red meant go would I go.
I replied that that made no sense.
He admitted that it was a bad example.
I told him jury nullification is also a staple to a democratic society (relating to his speech about jury duty being a civic duty) and that a jury has a right to not follow direction when a law is unjust or unconstitutional.
He then wanted to get into a fight about what I considered unconstitutional or not. He then said, "Well can you follow these directions? Go sit over there."
I had to sit by the bailiff through the rest of the selection, after the selection, reading of directions and then for an hour after everyone left the courtroom including the judge. I sat there by myself and could not leave. He then made me "volunteer" (court ordered) for community service in place of jury duty.
That was fine, I spearhead several projects a year.

Lesson of the day: If you want out of jury duty - declare your right to nullification.

Jury Power

www.fija.org Fully Informed Jury Association

"The primary function of the independent juror is not, as many think,
to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from the tyrannical abuses of power by government."

The Constitution guarantees you the right to trial by jury. This means that government must bring its case before a jury of The People if government wants to deprive any person of life, liberty, or property.

Jurors can say no to government tyranny by refusing to convict."
