Jury Empowerment is a form of educational empowerment that asserts the rights we hold as citizens to judge laws and people by our higher moral consciousness, and not by the rules of our Justice System that has been coerced by corruption.
Juries have tremendous power under the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Jefferson said “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” The jury is the citizen’s last protection against an overbearing government, but all too often jurors are left unaware of this. Jurors should know that it is their right and responsibility to vote their conscience; a juror’s vote of acquittal in the face of an unfair law or a law being unfairly applied essentially nullifies the law in that particular case for that particular defendant. Thus, it is often known as jury nullification.
