A prospective juror aptly named Singh
Defied the trial judge's ruling
He foolishly searched,
Then shared what he'd unearthed,
Oh yeah....He did a bad,bad ting.

kingoomieiii: I don't even know where the nearest law school IS and I know jurists aren't allowed to do their own research or hunt down their own evidence.

Well, grocery stores let us do our own checkouts, so why can't we do our own lawyering?

namatad: Jury Nullification is legal in the US. Period.

Since there are numerous states where, if a juror doesn't agree to follow the letter of the law he can be legally removed from a jury, I'm afraid that period was just some blood leaking from your vagina.

Now if you claimed it was constitutional, I'd agree with you. But constitutional is not the same as legal. Not by a long shot.

ReverendJasen: Boojum2k: Wrong answer. The crime this man is accused of is eligible for the death penalty, which is a legal sentence in Florida. If you cannot vote to apply it, you cannot serve as a juror on such a case.

If enough citizens can never be found that are willing to apply a death sentence, do they simply keep putting the trial off ad infinitum? At what point should they say "well, since no one in this state wants to kill prisoners, maybe, just maybe, we just go for a life sentence."

Personally, if on jury selection, I'd lie. I'd tell them I could vote for the death sentence, but I wouldn't. And if I looked up the defendants name on google, I sure as fark wouldn't be telling anybody about it so the judge could rape me.

I just read your profile.
I'm pro-choice, pro-death penalty, pro-gay marriage, & pro-gun.

1) Holy fark, you're me
2) 10/10, you got me
