Jurors can refuse to convict


The power of a juror is one of the greatest powers a  person can have in the United States.  If they believe a law is unjust they can ignore it and the state can take no action against them. For example:  If a juror believes that marijuana possession should be legal then they can refuse to vote for a guilty verdict in a possession case.

Article about juror power to just say no.

Law  professor’s opinion and detailed long instruction manual for jurors.

I believe that jurors should use their powers more often as a message to our  corrupt police, prosecutors, politicians, and judges in Cook County, IL.
