Camden28 - Anitwar Activists

http://www.camden28.org

Great movie on netflix streaming
"In the early-morning hours of Sunday, August 22, 1971, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and Attorney General John Mitchell announced that FBI agents had arrested 20 antiwar activists in and near a draft board office"

Judge Fisher informed the jury they could acquit if they felt government participation in setting up the crime had gone to “intolerable” lengths that were “offensive to the basic standards of decency and shocking to the universal sense of justice.

NH Jury Nullifies Drug War, Acquits Pot-Growing Rastafarian

http://reason.com

Rastafarian was growing pot "his own religious and medicinal use."
The judge made himself a hero and stated his intent to be the first judge in New Hampshire to grant the instruction on Nullification to the jury.
Thanks to the Free-Staters in the legsilature, starting on January 1, 2013, *ALL* defendants in NH will have the *RIGHT* to insist their jury hear these instructions.
Want to see fully-informed juries stop the drug war, the way they stopped alcohol prohibition? Come to New Hampshire!

Prosecutor Defeated by Glaring Stupidity of Pot Laws

http://reason.com

During voir dire, the almost all white, middle-class, middle-aged jury went into full rebellion against the prosecutor stating that they wouldn't convict even if the client's guilt was proven beyond a reasonable doubt -- almost all of them! They felt marijuana should be legalized, what he does with it is his own business and that the jails are already full of people for this silly charge.

Jury acquits man in case of two plants groing on his property

http://www.readthehook.com

With a majority of Americans now saying they don't think pot should be illegal, the prosecution demanded that the jury entertain no effort to practice nullification. Prior to opening arguments, the judge dismissed six potential jurors– including five of the first 13 interviewed– for revealing a disinclination or refusal to convict someone of pot possession.

Jury nullification education still barely 'legal' in USA, rules judge

http://www.naturalnews.com

Jury nullification, a legal concept that dates back to 17th century England, remains perfectly lawful in the United States, according to a ruling by a federal judge last month.
U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood said 80-year-old Julian Heicklin, who was arrested by FBI agents for passing out pamphlets marked "Jury Info" from an organization known as the Fully Informed Jury Association to an undercover agent, was within his legal rights under law to do so. Prosecutors had argued that Heicklin was in violation of U.S. law, which prohibits influencing jurors through written communication.

Victim of Police Break-In Jailed for 30 Days

http://lufkindailynews.com

I'm sure Marco Sauceda felt served and protected when the police entered his home and sprayed him with pepper spray, battered him, and tackled him because they thought he was a burglar. As it turns out, Mr. Sauceda was in his own home, is developmentally-challenged, and does not speak English. A jury of Mr. Sauceda's "peers" found that his actions of retreating further into the house and locking the door were "resisting arrest", worthy of a $500 fine and 30 days in jail.
