Jury nullification. Pass it on.

Jury nullification is so fucking important.

This is something that more people should be aware of, if only because (in many states, at least) defense attorneys are actually prohibited from mentioning it to jurors. The law allows a jury to return a “not guilty” verdict contrary to the facts of the case, but not for the defense to inform them of that power or to argue for its application in the current trial.

I didn’t know about this. Wow.

always reblog

This is SUPER IMPORTANT and also a good reason to show up for jury duty. You know all those laws you think are stupid? This is your chance to maybe do something about it. 

I…. I thought this was common knowledge… signal boosting this because it obviously isn’t!

Did not know this

I’m pretty sure this is true in UKvia, too.


Fun fact: They do not tell you this when you’re called for jury duty and sit through the ‘how to be a juror’ instruction course in the state of RI.

Lookin’ up my old arts

I’ve gotten better.

Also, a little tamer.

But, overall, I’m the distilled essence of the critter I was a couple years ago.

And that’s a good thing to be.

Shocking Truths Behind What Cat Behaviors Really Mean…

lol

accurate.

my cat must trust me to death. He never attacks when you rub his belly, but he will push your hand to his head like you better get to rubbing.

I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.
