Ever heard of voir dire?

That is the process by where attorneys do their best to eliminate all the intelligent and knowledgeable people from the jury pool so that the jury will be full of plastic easily molded dullards who can be controlled. A prosecutor may ask prospective jurors if they have heard of jury nullification. A positive response will send them down the road. Once this group of simpleton jurors is assembled into a jury, the judge will instruct them to be automatons and only make judgments as to the truthfulness of the facts of the case and to NOT make judgments as to whether or not the law is fair or valid etc.

There goes jury nullification. Poof. Gone.
