          What happens when the rule of law increasingly bows to the whims and violations of unaccountable public officials? In the United States, we are seeing the rule of law eroded by those at the top levels of our government. We are witnessing the dismantling of the guiding principles of justice and the rule of law. Our legal system has been gamed to preferentially serve the needs of the few rather than those of the many. The Founding Fathers gave us one last check and balance against a tyrannical government: trial by jury and the concept of jury nullification. While a corrupt government may introduce unjust or unfair laws through the Legislative branch and then enforce them through the Executive branch, We the People retain the ability in the jury box to nullify a law we feel is immoral, unjust, unfairly applied, or unconstitutional. Jury nullification predates the United States, and has roots all the way back to the Magna Carta. An old saying goes: "There are five boxes to use in the defense of liberty: the soapbox, the mailbox, the ballot box, the jury box, and the ammunition box. Use them in that order." The Jury Box is the fourth -- and next to last -- box to use in the defense of liberty. The last recourse that “We the People” have to prevent a violent revolt and bloody revolution is to use the power of jury nullification that was given to us by the Founding Fathers. Our July presentation and discussion centered on this topic. If you are unfamiliar with this topic, please, take the time to watch and learn about one of the checks on tyranny our Founders gave us.

                    There are few ways out of tyranny and back to freedom. Bloodshed and war are often the most common, but our founding fathers learned of a better way. They established a three vote system by which an informed citizenry can control those acting in the name of the government. Our first vote everyone knows about. It is at the polls on election-day when we pick those who are to represent us in the seats of government. But what can be done if those elected officials just don’t perform as promised or expected? Are we to wait till the next time around and hope that the new guys will repeal the bad legislation that was passed? Well, the second two votes are the most effective means by which the common people of any nation on earth have ever had in controlling those appointed to serve them in government. The second vote comes when you serve on a Grand Jury. Before anyone can be brought to trial for a capital or infamous crime by those acting in the name of the government, permission must be obtained from people serving on the Grand Jury! The purpose of the grand Jury can be thought of in this way: “A Grand Jury’s purpose is to protect the public from an overzealous prosecutor.” Remember, prosecutors earn advancement by “wins” not by seeking justice. The prosecutor is going to do everything in his power to convict. It is our duty as WE THE PEOPLE to keep that in mind and be the ones that keep our eye on justice. Justice and legality is not always the same thing. In the early days of America, anyone who hid slaves or helped a runaway slave was guilty of breaking the law under the Fugitive Slave Act. Today, we think of slavery as reprehensible and would do everything in our power to stop it. But, back then it was the law. So, it is important to remember that not all laws are made with the good of the populace in mind. The third is the most powerful vote: this is when you are acting as a jury member during a courtroom trial. At this point, “the buck stops” with you! It is in this setting that each JUROR has MORE POWER than the President, all of Congress, and all of the judges combined! Congress can legislate (make law), the President or some other bureaucrat can make an order or issue regulations, and judges may instruct or make a decision, but no JUROR can ever be punished for voting “Not Guilty!” Any juror can, with impunity, choose to disregard the instructions of any judge or attorney in rendering his vote. If only one JUROR should vote “Not Guilty” for any reason, there is no conviction and no punishment at the end of the trial. Thus, those acting in the name of government must come before the common man to get permission to enforce law, any law.

                      The following two hours of video/2 DVDs are of an interview conducted with Dr. Julian Heicklen on Wednesday, 21 March 2012. Dr. Heicklen is an advocate for jury nullification and the fully informed jury movement in the U.S. Court system at all levels. His website is: personal.psu.edu/jph13 In the United States, we are currently living under a government of unprecedented criminality, and it is guaranteed to get much worse unless “We the People” do what is necessary to prevent that from happening. The people of Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, and Communist China did not respond to the obvious threats until it was too late, and many people were murdered. That cannot-must not be allowed to happen here. Fortunately, in the U.S., we have the Constitution, the Internet, the right to bear arms, and a court system of trial by jury, through which jurors are able to "nullify" convictions, and unjust punishment by government, of people who are on trial. Frequently, corrupt prosecutors, corrupt judges, withholding of evidence, or unjust laws either railroad innocent people into jail for crimes which they did not commit, for which laws exist but which are “unjust laws” for which there is no basis in the U.S. Constitution, or are "money makers" for local municipalities such as minor traffic violations in mass pullovers where the police are told that they must make their quota. Such violations of law, by police and governmental officials, cost people money in fines, increased insurance premiums, and loss of jobs related to restriction of driving privileges. When the jurors sense that something is wrong with the law (i.e., unjust drug laws), that the judges and/or police are "on the take” with regard to minor traffic violations, then it is the right of those jurors (some would say the "obligation") to vote that person "not guilty", regardless of what any judge says are the "sentencing guidelines", "sentencing laws", or the laws themselves. It is said that the best way to do away with unjust laws is to make them unenforceable, and this is the power that the jurors actually have, regardless of what the law says, or what the judge says the law says. A few years ago it was said, in a major local NY-NJ newspaper, that approximately 33% of the local judges in New Jersey were "on the take" regarding minor traffic violations. The judge in the article was being taken out in handcuffs. A final summary of what jurors might do is as follows: If an innocent person was hurt by a real crime, then vote to convict that person. However, if there is any suspicion that the person is innocent, if the law is unjust and there is no victim of any crime (i.e. a "victim-less crime"), then vote your conscience, disregard the judge's instructions, and vote "not guilty".
