jury Nullification or by another name “The Fully Informed Jury" is one of the greatest controls on tyranny available to us.
Jury nullification has a long history in the United States. Our forefathers referenced it as a remedy to judicial tyranny and bad law. It is time we excercised that right again.

He is the author of more than two dozen noteworthy scholarly articles, and some of his research has been relied on by federal courts. He is an advocate for the rights of the disenfranchised, the downtrodden and the politically estranged.
