Rich Paul Appeal @ Supreme Court

In this video, activist Rich Paul’s appeal attorney Joshua Gordon argues in front of the Supreme Court that instructions for juries should be more acknowledging of their right to jury nullification, while the attorney for the state argues that nullification is illegal, but tolerated by the system:

Rich was originally convicted by a jury of his “peers” on cannabis dealing charges and one charge of selling purported LSD. During the judge’s instructions to the jury the robed man intimidated the jurors into thinking they had to listen to HIS interpretations of the court rules, and made it sound like nullification was not an option, when it should have been clear that it was. That’s the basis for Rich’s appeal here.

  1. Why are judges allowed to lie when giving juries their instructions?

  2. This hail mary attempt never made it past the line of scrimmage.

    “Jury nullification” is just plain silly, mostly because the assumption is made that people on a jury would want to nullify a law given the opportunity. When you combine the overwhelming evidence with a character like Paul, all the jury felt is probably revulsion and a desire to render a guilty verdict.

    Do not pass go and do not go to jail this time, Rich … it’s off to big-boy prison for you once you’re found guilty of parole violations this week or next.

  3. Because they’re immune from consequences.

  4. What’s it feel like to be on the wrong side of history? You’ll be remembered like the hooded idiots that opposed the civil rights movement.

  5. Where is Rich Paul now, douchebag? Oh yeah … he’s in jail for 6 months. Silly freetard: justice is a bitch.
