Good comments. Also the concept of "Jury Nullification" is not taught in any schools or universities. It dates back to The Magna Carta and English Common Law.

American Judges and lawyers have wickedly hid this power from the American people. A century of deception by those charged with the duty to serve justice and the Constitution.

Among the worst and most corrupt individuals in the [in] justice system are prosecutors who trample a thousand years of Anglo Saxon law and the heritage of the Rights Of Englishmen, wish for the most part were bequeathed to us from our founders and framers and indeed made more perfect.

Until John Marshall and that ruthless filth Abe Lincoln.

The greatest distinguishing factor between countries in which there is some freedom and those where authoritarian governments manage personal behavior is the Rule of Law. The idea that the very laws that the government is charged with enforcing could restrain the government itself is uniquely Western and was accepted with near unanimity at the time of the creation of the American Republic. Without that concept underlying the exercise of governmental power, there is little hope for freedom.

The Rule of Law is a three-legged stool on which freedom sits. The first leg requires that all laws be enacted in advance...
