I think this tale is far from over.
There is a reason why "Jury Nullification" is held in disdain by the court system. The BAR has a legislated monopoly on practicing law in each
state and thus the country, and part of that power comes from the intertwining of the Justice System in the government with the 'commercial'
practice of law. hence all the UCC and Admiralty law crap inserted into the construct - as if we were 'widgets.'
If juries retain the right (as it is a right) to decide what does and doesn't rise to the level of being called "criminality" in their communities,
there is only one negative result that can come of it... any overarching agenda will not be imposable upon the people of the particular jurisdictions
involved in the state. Each community will have the ability to reject someone else's idea of right and wrong. This is not a path without dangers,
but the legal system seems perpetually fixed against it... monopolies of power require consistent regulation to retain the illusion of legitimacy.
The Federal government can most certainly interfere in this by simply tasking the local federal AG to challenge the case and keep it in appeal until
it arrives at the Supreme Court, where the most politically expedient precedent can be set... that would be very ugly and have a very high political
eliminating Jury nullification could be the fulcrum of the "states have no authority" wet-dream of the federal government.
As it stands we can see the federal government creeping towards that posture... which could have been predicted if people had realized that the
political party duopoly has a monopolistic choke hold on all the legal system within states AND the federal government.
Simply put, Jury nullification is not about right or wrong... it's about what the "people" want.... i.e. its one of the last parts of true
democracy remaining in the republic... which is why Judges and lawyers hate it... they prefer to think in terms of things like "my courtroom"
and "laymen cannot interpret law." The bar represents the struggle to impose technocracy into the system, since they and only they can
American Jurisprudence is in dire need of an enema and some intense therapy.... Jury nullification is among the few sound principles left which speak
to the truth of the idea that we are not a governed people. Our rule, is over ourselves, and we are not beholden to the courts, but they are beholden
to our will.
