The jury sits in judgment of the law, which makes being a juror the single most important civil/political function the ordinary citizen ever performs.
Nope, the prosecution wouldn’t let me on this jury either.
Absolutely incorrect. The jury sits in judgment of the accused - more precisely, in judgment of the state's case against the accused - and are instructed, without equivocation, to follow the law, not to evaluate its merit.
If you're arguing for jury nullification, you're no different than the idiotic racists who acquitted OJ Simpson.
