Have you ever heard of FIJA? Fully Informed Jury Association. https://fija.org/ I used to be a member. One day - I participated in an educational seminar led by Bill - from West Allis - a retired cop - of all things. He had twelve of us dress in Black Robes - and march around the Milwaukee Courthouse - passing out literature from FIJA - to inform the people that they also had the right to decide if the law under which the Defendant was being prosecuted was Just. The concept is Jury Nullification - first used by WIlliam Penn.... Penn and William Mead had been arrested in 1670 for illegally preaching a Quaker sermon and disturbing the peace, but four jurors, led by Edward Bushell, refused to find them guilty. ... This series of events is considered a significant milestone in the history of jury nullification.
