Jury Rights Outreach – Brentwood (3/6/17)

Monday 3/6/17 was the second week of jury selection at Rockingham County Court in Brentwood, NH. Rights Brigade activists Ellie Andersen and me were right on time this week to inform potential juror’s of their right to nullify a bad law by voting not to convict a defendant! Nobly used to prevent innocents from being prosecuted for victimless crimes. We informed 78 jurors via the NHJury.com pamphlets having only a few refuse the information.
We handed out 3 pocket constitution! Two going to potential jurors who were very interested in the Pamphlet we gave them, and the other to a lady at the courthouse for something unrelated. As she walked out she asked what makes us come stand out in the freezing cold to hand out information and constitutions. The answer is simple- that a informed public makes a better community for everyone. Sharing this knowledge of your rights as a citizen might prevent the suffering of someone not deserving of it. Ellie and I would never have known our rights if it hadn’t been for activist like ourselves reaching out with knowledge and the intent to better society. She told us how grateful she was that we do this and thanked us for our efforts. Earlier that morning a potential juror after giving him the informational pamphlet told us he loved us and what we do as he walked in.

Liberty activism work is extremely rewarding. The next selection group will be reporting again next Monday 3/13/17 at 10AM. Join the fight to get lost knowledge prevalent in society again so we can all make informed decisions while contributing to society! We meet 9:30am! Hope to see you there or at any future outreach events!

Jury Rights Outreach – Manchester (2/27/17)

Today I conducted jury nullification outreach to jurors in Manchester.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant because doing so, while applying the law, would yield an unjust result. By so doing a jury can nullify a bad law that has come to cause harm instead of good. Jury rights activists such as myself inform jurors of this right by distributing pamphlets in front of courthouses.

This was the first selection of the pool, so the courthouse had a long, snaking stream of jurors incoming. I was not intending to lead up the operation, but apparently the activist who was supposed to never showed up, so I ended up doing it myself.

I reached 80 jurors.

Jury Rights Outreach – Dover (2/21/17)

I once again headed up jury nullification outreach in Dover.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant who otherwise would be guilty based on the facts of the case, but where a conviction would lead to a morally unjust result. Jury rights activists inform jurors of this right by distributing informative pamphlets in front of courthouses.

I was met with a pool of jurors very satisfied with the weather, since last time they were severely snowed upon in the parking lot. One woman, however, inquired if I was with the court, predicting my response to be negative. She was not friendly and had a University of New Hampshire jacket, indicating she probably worked in public education. No wonder the hostility towards the practice of freedom!

A friend was in the jury pool, and told me that he had seen many jurors reading through the pamphlets and internalizing the information. Great news, I guess we aren’t wasting our time!

Despite reaching well over a hundred jurors last time, I still managed to get to 60 new ones this time.

Jury Rights Outreach – Nashua (2/21/17)

I once again headed up jury nullification outreach in Nashua.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to find a defendant guilty, not based on whether or not the law would apply to this particular case, but on whether or not applying the law would yield a just result. By doing this a single juror can cause a not guilty verdict, nullifying a bad law. Jury rights activists inform jurors of this right via informative pamphlets.

No comments today on Judge interference. I asked several jours direct questions about what the court told them about our pamphlet, they stated that they were not told anything about it and were allowed to keep it. I wonder if it was a different judge this week.

Zero new jurors reached. Apparently I did too good of a job last time! They all said they had received one already.

Jury Rights Outreach – Dover (2/7/17)

On this wintry day I conducted jury nullification outreach in Dover.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides they won’t convict a defendant who would otherwise be guilty, on the basis of the law itself being immoral. This is commonly advocated as a way to nullify victimless crimes such as marijuana. Jury right activists hand out informative pamphlets outside of courthouses to educate jurors of this right.

This was a cold day in the middle of a snowstorm, and many jurors were upset that the selection had not been called off. Even though it was the first selection of the pool, for some reason jurors were forced to use the side door, which caused the line to get through security to snake well into the parking lot. The jurors were not happy about being stuck in the storm.

I ran into a friend who encouraged his fellow jurors to pay heed to the information I was passing out.

In total, 120 jurors were reached.

Jury Rights Outreach – Laconia (2/6/17)

Rights Brigade activists took to the streets again to inform jurors in Laconia about nullification.

Jury nullification is a juror’s right to nullify a bad law by voting not to convict a defendant. This is commonly used to prevent innocents from being prosecuted for victimless crimes. Jury rights activists inform them of this right via informative pamphlets.

Michael Sylvia and Glenn Bailey conducted the operation.

​20 Belknap County jurors got their information even though it was 21 degrees and windy.

Jury Rights Outreach – Manchester (2/6/17)

*picture from previous operation*

I once again conducted jury nullification outreach in Manchester.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant because said conviction would yield an unjust result. Jury rights activists such as myself inform jurors of this right by distributing informative pamphlets outside of courthouses.

This was the first selection of the jury pool, with higher volume than later selections in the pool. The outreach operation went well today. 84 jurors served.

Jury Rights Outreach – Concord (2/6/17)

I once again conducted jury nullification outreach in Concord.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict an otherwise guilty defendant, not on the basis of whether or not the law applies, but on whether applying the law (in the particular case or in general) would yield an unjust result. Jury nullification advocates educate jurors about this right by distributing informative pamphlets in front of courthouses.

Atypically for the last selection of the jury pool, there was quite the group of jurors around, and most hadn’t received a pamphlet. This allowed me to reach many of the jurors who were at the first selection of that pool, who previously had been missed.

One juror instantly recognized jury nullification, and inquired about InfoWars. Apparently the famed conservatarian conspiracy personality Alex Jones has been educating his audience on jury nullification as well interdimensional aliens. Good to know.

I reached an even 70 new jurors.

Jury Rights Outreach – Brentwood (2/6/17)

I conducted jury outreach in Brentwood today, last of the pool.

Jury nullification is when a jury decides not to convict because a conviction would yield an unjust result. Jury rights activists such as myself inform jurors of this right by distributing informative pamphlets outside of courthouses.

Things went well at Brentwood this morning! I handed out 3 pocket constitutions. Everyone looked a little tired from the festivities last night. I had two or three people tell me how much they appreciate me coming out every Monday and how admirable it is! Hopefully they realize that we wouldn’t be this dedicated and doing this unless the cause was very worthy.

No new jurors were reached since all had received a pamphlet at previous selections.

Jury Rights Outreach – Nashua (2/6/17)

Today was the first jury selection for the month of February at the Hillsborough County Southern District Superior Court in Nashua, NH. As usual, jurors were forced to wait outside in the cold until 10 minutes before the scheduled selection time of 8:15am. Those most dutiful in their punctuality arrived at 7:45 or earlier, and were waiting for the doors to be unlocked for 20 minutes or more. The line of 100+ jurors stretched all the way down one side of the building at one point, with jurors standing and shivering in the 20-degree weather.

Our volunteer activist BJ Mumford arrived at 7:40am and began handing out our fliers containing “Important Information for Jurors” – information on the right of the jury to nullify bad laws by declaring the defendant “Not Guilty” in cases of victimless crimes.

Most jurors welcomed the invitation to take a flier, many expressing relief that they were in the right place, as the courthouse is not clearly marked for potential jurors to find their way in. Overall 110 jurors were reached, and two self-identified public defendants also took a flier, expressing interest in the subject of nullification.

Our next selection date in Nashua will occur at 9:15am on Tuesday, February 21st!
