Fully Informed Jurors!
« on: December 05, 2007, 01:58:57 pm »

Most if not all of you already know that jurors have the authority to veto any bad or misapplied law being used to prosecute anyone.
Just say not guilty.

For more information, visit the web site at www.fija.org
Or call 1-800-TEL-JURY and a free information packet will be mailed to you.

If you get called for jury duty, if you serve on a jury, if you have a jury trial, this is a great place to post about it.

Absolutely GREAT instructional video!  A very well done, professional job with an attention maintaining 'casual' conversational approach.  Very easy to comprehend.  I heartily recommend everyone with high speed connections take a few minutes and listen to what feralfae has to say.  It could change how you think about juries.  My family has served and has faced some of these questions.

Until I ran into fija.org, (about a year ago) I had ZERO interest in being on a jury because I thought we would be boxed into an up or down verdict based solely on evidence presented and the law as the judge instructed. 

I had NO IDEA the jury has the power to determine the law is flawed, at least as applied to the case presented and to render a not guilty verdict as a result.  This particularly intrigues me because of so many malum prohibitum laws on the books. 

What an opportunity to make a REAL difference.  Thank you FIJA and feralfae. :mellow:

Sigh, I wish I could watch that. Why does every movie have to be flash these days? What happened to open, standards compliant video formats? You know, MPEG? XVID? Anyone? :dontknow:  At least TED lets me download as MP4…

    Well. you know, it's sorta what I do.   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
    If you need any literature to help us to remind folks about jury authority, which is one of the most elegant and peaceful forms of civil resistance, let me know.

    Disrespect one reason jurors hard to find

    By Chris Maj, Denver

    Thursday, January 24, 2008

    The recent prospective juror raids at grocery stores in Greeley stink of unchecked judicial arrogance. But I refer less to the on-the-spot issuances of jury summonses, and more to the growing disregard for the power of the jury ("Scores plucked off street for jury duty in Greeley," Jan. 17).

    Colorado judges tell juries to decide cases not on matters of law but only matters of fact - even if the jury disagrees or does not understand the rules. In effect, jurors are requested to put good conscience aside and robotically determine the verdict based on the judge's orders.

    However, jurors might like to know that there's no criminal penalty for weighing instructions from a judge against plain old common sense!

    Perhaps to engender responsibility among jurors - and get them to report for duty instead of corralling them on the sidewalks as the bell rings - judges should consider fully informing jurors about their rights as respected equals in the delivery of justice.
