That is the website of the American Jury Institute, also and formerly known as Fully Informed Jury Association, formed up by a bunch of patriots in
Montana and around the country.
Beginning basically with the Sparf decision in 1895, the government began to deceive the public and jury about its power to nullify bad law or the
poor application of any given law.
The Jury acts as the conscience of the community, in traditional american culture. Thomas Jefferson saw the jury as the best way yet designed by man
to keep government within its lawful confines in governing. He was right, but more than a century after Sparf most americans don't know a thing
about the nullification power.
Indeed, good citizenship DEMANDS that bad laws be nullified until they are repealed, as happened with the Volstead Act and the Fugitive Slave Act way
back in 1850.
The only chance to get this corrupted government back under control is through widespread jury nullification, and even that may not work, considering
how badly out of control things are.
