Jury nullification. Pass it on.
Jury nullification is so fucking important.
This is something that more people should be aware of, if only because (in many states, at least) defense attorneys are actually prohibited from mentioning it to jurors. The law allows a jury to return a “not guilty” verdict contrary to the facts of the case, but not for the defense to inform them of that power or to argue for its application in the current trial.
I didn’t know about this. Wow.
This is SUPER IMPORTANT and also a good reason to show up for jury duty. You know all those laws you think are stupid? This is your chance to maybe do something about it.
I…. I thought this was common knowledge… signal boosting this because it obviously isn’t!
Did not know this

Rainbow spiral hat pattern
I’ve recently learnt how to do intarsia, which proved to be very easy and had me wondering why I’ve never done it before. At the same time my friend Anna was complaining that she’s lost her rainbow striped hat, and I thought ‘perfect! I can try out these new techniques!
Hullabaloo is a 2D hand-drawn animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo. In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.
For more information about Hullabaloo, its creators, and how you can help bring this story to life, visit here! Their goal is to reach $80,000 by October 1st, 2014, so every donation helps and help spread the word!
Q:Is it true that Darren Wilson is going to be on trial in October with 9 white jurors?
I haven’t heard that specifically, unless I missed something.Edit: There are 9 white jurors and 3 black jurors. Nine votes are needed to indict.
This is the info I have on the trial/jury:
- The grand jury in the killing of Mike Brown is only meeting once a week and are being treated as co-investigators. Also, legal experts say it’s unlikely that Darren Wilson will be charged with 1st degree murder. 2nd degree murder is possible but also unlikely if he argues that he feared for his life.
- Possible outcomes from Grand Jury and DOJ investigation
- Grand jury might not hear all evidence until mid-October
- Grand jury will begin hearing evidence on Aug. 20 in murder of Mike Brown. Darren wilson will have opportunity to testify (x)
- Demographics of grand jury (1) (2) (3)
I WANT TO FUCKING VOMIT.
