We The People, In Jury Assembled

"The only real lawyers are trial lawyers, and trial lawyers try cases to juries."

– Clarence Darrow

Our once venerable and inviolate jury system was not meant to be regarded like mere anachronistic platitudes of our heritage, but as practical solutions.

“I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”

      -- Thomas Jefferson

I'll betcha Ralph would not disagree.
