"The jury has a right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy."
John Jay, 1st Chief Justice United States supreme Court, 1789
Georgia v. Brailsford (1794)

...

The jury box is the last defense of liberty. However most juries if not all are rigged.

All rights reserved and no rights waived.

Print these and

Print these and hand them out at meetups/meetings, libraries, polling locations during elections, etc.

http://www.jurybox.org/resources/

Handing them out at the courthouse to a select few who serve on jury is not enough and more than likely too late. We must educate ALL Americans and our children to effect the change that we seek.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

...

The juries don't even know what the difference between law, statute, ordinance and/or code is. I hardly think these people want to be free. They watch Court TV. That's all they know. If it doesn't come out the box. It doesn't exist.

All rights reserved and no rights waived.

John Locke #227 -228

In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/Locke_Civil_Government/lo...

John Locke 227: ".....And if those, who by force take away the legislative, are rebels, the legislators themselves, as has been shown, can be no less esteemed so, when they who were set up for the protection and preservation of the people, their liberties and properties shall by force invade and endeavour to take them away; and so they putting themselves (the legislative) into a "state of war" with those (the people) who made them the protectors and guardians of their (the people's) peace, are properly, and with the greatest aggravation, rebellantes, rebels.

228. But if they who say it lays a foundation for rebellion mean that it may occasion civil wars or intestine broils to tell the people they are absolved from obedience when illegal attempts are made upon their liberties or properties, and may oppose the unlawful violence of those who were their magistrates when they invade their properties, "contrary to the trust" (Original compact - purpose) put in them, and that, therefore, this doctrine is not to be allowed, being 'so destructive to the "PEACE" of the world';

>>> they may as well say, upon the same ground, that honest men may not oppose robbers or pirates

, because this may occasion disorder or bloodshed.

If any mischief come in such cases, >>> it is not to be charged upon him who defends his own right, but "on him" that "invades his neighbour's".

If the innocent honest man must quietly quit all he has for "PEACE SAKE" to him who will lay violent hands upon it, I desire it may be considered what kind of a peace there will be in the world which consists only in violence and rapine,

and which is to be maintained only for the benefit of robbers and oppressors.

Who would not think it an admirable peace betwixt the mighty and the mean, when the lamb, without resistance, yielded his throat to be torn by the imperious wolf? ..."

or else "the PEOPLE" will have a "RIGHT" to declare it "VOID". ..."

JUSTICE HUGO BLACK

JUSTICE HUGO BLACK, (Assoc. Justice U.S. Supreme Court, 1937-1971) a great believer in the Jury system, used to tell this story:

Years ago, in the foot-hills of Alabama, a tenant-farmer was charged criminally with stealing a cow from his landlord, and was brought to trial. As was frequently the case in rural America, the Jurors selected for the trial were acquainted with everyone, including the accused and his victim. Each juror knew that the farm's landlord was a nasty bastard who tormented his neighbors, while frequently treating the town's orphans and widows with derision. By the same token, the tenant-farmer was the salt of the earth, beloved by everyone. But still, the evidence of his guilt was indisputable.
After the evidence was in and the jury retired to deliberate, it quickly returned to the courtroom to announce its verdict: "If the accused returns the cow, we find him not guilty."
The judge was infuriated. His anger heightening, he commanded the jury to return to the jury room to deliberate --shrilly chastising them for their flagrantly "arrogant" and "illegal" verdict.
Not a moment passed when they re-appeared in the tense courtroom to trumpet their new verdict: "We find the accused not guilty -- and he can keep the cow."
The American Jury, Justice Black reminds his listeners, is effectively omnipotent in rendering an acquittal. What hits home in Justice Black's story is the deeply-held American notion that juries often perform an independent role in a system in which the people - not prosecutors, judges or lawyers - have the last word. In the end, if the jury wishes to let the defendant keep the cow, that is what will happen.- JUSTICE HUGO BLACK

A good counter question would have been:

"And how is jury nullification wasting taxpayers' money?"

Honestly, how would this script-reader have answered that question? Anybody here at the DP care to play Devil's Advocate and answer by proxy?

Of course, it's the exact opposite of being wasteful from a Liberty perspective. You keep innocent people out of jail, you put prosecutors on notice that they're evil game will not be tolerated by arresting and charging innocent people and thereby encourage them to NOT prosecute, THUS SAVING tons of money, and the biggest thing of all is preserving freedom and putting up a huge dam to the downward slide of tyranny.

"Isn't...

there better ways to change the law, instead of wasting the taxpayers money?" lol! They always have to throw in some dumb question. The jurors are paid whether or not they use nullification. And if they DO use nullification, there will most likely be no more trial. Doesn't that save money? Also think of how much will be saved by ending the practice of jailing drug addicts and the like.
