A message worth sharing IMO.

But first some context. (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-08-25/denver-police-arrest-jury-nullification-activist-passing-out-informational-pamphlets)

Jury nullification is when a juror ignores the arguments made and rules according to some other criteria. It is a way for ordinary people to act in their citizen obligation of juror duty in an environment where the law is unjust.

I wish more people had knowledge of this law (and old tradition) in the US. Today when judges inform jurors of their responsibilities, from what I understand, this option is always neglected. Thanks for posting, lcam.
