Jury nullification bill to get hearing – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Politics   Leave a comment

Jury nullification bill to get hearing – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Politics.

Alaska State Representative Tammy Wilson (from North Pole, which is next door to Fairbanks) specializes in tilting at windmills. She deserves kudos for trying at least, though this begs the question — with the long history of jury nullification that can be found in the Founders’ writings and in Supreme Court cases as well as English common law, why should this law be necessary? I’m not saying it’s not. The current jury constraints are a fairly recent abridgement of liberty that it is, unfortunately, necessary to address.
