The whole reason you do jury duty is to protect the rights of others. Thomas Jefferson said, “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet devised by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” That means that if the government passes laws that are unconstitutional, then the jury has the power to veto that law; this is also called jury nullification. The government of this nation has many laws that are unconstitutional. The 18th amendment that made prohibition in effect was ended by jury nullification. When no jury will convict a person of their “crime” then the District Attorneys will not take such foolish cases to court.
