WARNING: If you continue reading, you will likely ruin your ability to serve on any jury that is well managed OR you will forfeit your ability to use this knowledge without being guilty of perjury. This is no joke and you better research this yourself because I'm not responsible for your actions, your interpretation of this information, or any consequences.

*Jury Nullification*: Ultimately, it's the jurors RIGHT and RESPONSIBILITY to make a guilty judgement not ONLY based on the facts and law, but ALSO on what you think is right; thereby judging the law itself as well as the "crime". It is a mechanism very intentionally built into the core of our legal system.
This is not my interpretation either, this is our founding forefathers design:
John Adams wrote, “_It is not only the juror’s right, but his duty to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment and conscience, though in direct opposition to the instruction of the court._”
Thomas Jefferson wrote, “_I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution._”
This video and the following link help explain but beware because jury selection includes questions worded very carefully to eliminate people who understand their full responsibility and power as a juror and those questions are typically worded in a way that if you use jury nullification, you will likely find yourself guilty of perjury. This is because the people who run the legal system as as susceptible to this power as criminals and your ignorance of it gives them tyrannical power. As long as they can keep you off a jury, they can manipulate the legal system rather than have it manipulated by the people who should be doing so, "THE PEOPLE".
The only real way to address this abuse is spread the knowledge so far that they cannot reasonably assemble an otherwise fair jury without allowing jurors who know their full responsibilities and rights as a juror.
