Jury nullification : it's your right and your duty ! For hundreds of years jury nullification has occurred when a jury finds a defendant not guilty , even though the defendant may have opposed rejected the code in question . It is not a violation to oppose or reject an immoral or unconstitutional code , and codes are NOT law when they are in opposition to the Constitution , which is the supreme law of the land . It's called the supremacy clause . Because the attorneys , judges and local government make so much money by passing unlawful codes and regulations , they continue to invent an illusion of criminal activity where there is none . This court for profit system eventually destroys freedom in the community . Therefore it is essential for you the juror to realize and exercise your role as the blocker of a power hungry court system AND as the final enforcer of freedom among the people . Remember two things : 1 : society , or the state , cannot be a victim . It is called a fictitious entity , meaning false or made up . Only a living man or woman can claim to be a victim . No victim , no crime . 2 : YOU the juror are the judge and the judge is nothing more than a referee with no authority to tell the jury how they can interpret the law . Any judge who instructs the jury is committing jury tampering , a felony . They use intimidation and manipulation to control the jury . Do not submit to the unlawful pressure from the judge , he or she has a very large financial stake in creating guilty verdicts because the pension funds they rely upon for retirement are heavily invested in the private prison industry . As a juror you have total immunity to vote your conscience regardless of any threats by the jury-tampering judge . Someone's freedom will rest in your hands if you are selected as a juror, and it is your right and your duty to judge the fairness of the law as well as the facts . If the law is wrong , or no living victim is injured , the verdict is "not guilty" and freedom wins for everyone, including you the juror. “The Pages of history shine on instance of the jury’s exercise of its prerogative to disregard instructions of the judge..”US vs Dougherty 1972
