Raw Milk Farmer (Minnesota) obtains acquittal by Jury Nullification.
Luckily this jury was informed about the process of jury
nullification, and their legal right to rule in favor of the accused
for breaking unjust laws.
According to Iloilo Jones, director of the Fully Informed Jury
Association “Minnesota has long had highly visible FIJA Activists
volunteering their time and efforts to educate every potential juror
in Minnesota about the right of the people to veto bad laws through
the use of the Juror Veto, or, as it is commonly called, Jury
Nullification. As laws become more and more invasive, punitive, and
draconian, prison populations become more and more peopled by
harmless, productive people, who have harmed no other person. Jurors
can stop the enforcement of bad laws. Jurors have stopped bad laws
since freedom of religion was defended by jurors, and by later jurors
who refused to enforce slavery.
A Jury of 12 can nullify ANY provision of ANY Statute by means of its
It just takes the RIGHT case, and the RIGHT information given to the Jury.
BECAUSE -STATUTES- ARE ***NOT*** "LAW" ... and JURY VERDICTS ***ARE*** LAW.
BUT YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE JURY KNOWS ***THEIR*** RIGHTS ...
'COZ THE JUDGE IS UNLIKELY TO TELL THEM.
