    You should 100% know, and I think it's the responsibility of the law to inform the jury about their abilities. Simply put, people who are more educated on what their job entails are able to perform their job with much greater accuracy. In the end, Juries still need to reach a consensus, so even with the knowledge of jury nullification, it's a hard task to make everyone agree on a specific sentence. In the end our entire law system revolves around the jury, so, making them more braindead and ill-informed is so counterproductive to upholding a just and proper law system. If law as we know it is the creation and decision of the people, directed by the Jury, then promoting ignorance creates an ignorant law system. Just because the jury would know about nullification doesn't mean they will always use it, after all we all still have opinions how what should and shouldn't be punishable to what severity. Besides even if they will use Jury nullification more often, which is 100% legal and their choice to use, then they could actually reduce prison populations or negate dated laws that only serve to punish victims, such as addicts or people suffering from immense mental health issues, not the person manipulating, profiting from and abusing their condition. Jury nullification is a part of the job, and acting like it isn't is directly opposed to a just law system. If you sign up to be part of a jury, with the intention to uphold a just law system, to better serve your community, then not knowing the full range of your abilities, is in direct opposition to that goal. In the end we do not serve the law, the law serves us, and that should never be forgotten.

There are mere branches of a single massive collection of cult all based on luciferian following, They all at their core's are nephillam & fallen worshippers,, They merely make different names to create a sense of accountability,, They don't want to have guilty by association pinned to their organization when another steps out of line & is exposed or revealed at large to the public as the wicked scum they are,, Little do people realize the power these cult's have when their profession is deception ontop of that they all are in cooperation with 1 another.. They claim to be different organizations, No merely have different names,, If people can't do more then speak out there isn't much a chance for those that desire real freedom,, We have no choice at this point war or enslavement worse then any generation has ever whiteness to this sophisticated prison system called society, The World collection prison is the goal, They already control all resources, Regulations is a word thrown around a lot, When you hear that word in the Narratives their actually speaking in hegelian dialect, They are speaking in code, They are actually saying we are controlling this resource or all of them & can shut them off at will,, Think about that, 200 year's ago these Mason's so called helped establish this country, Little does anyone realize they stole all the land & resources, They cut it all down too, Most trees people see outside are actually only 200 year's old & younger, They took all the food & decimated the land scrapes of food,, & they claim to wonder why wildlife try to go into cities & are dwindling to extinction levels,, They know why,, It's all a deception, They do not want people critically thinking, That endangers everything they do, Because they become more susceptible to exposure, When the correct actual detective comes along they could expose them,, Why hasn't 1 yet,, Because you don't get into a position like a detective without year's of being watched by these luciferian as they are the leadership in positions of power, Or short of being 1 of them to begin with,, A true detective would have exposed much of all this year's ago said if they weren't in the cult's or controlled or blackmailed,, When thing's recur repeatedly & all have connections to a set of organizations there's no Coincidence to be said to exist,, That's deflection because their aware of the cult's or part of them,, Or cognitive dissonance, Or pure ignorance, I doubt the ignorance, They are big organizations with years standing of so called highly educated people from so called prestigious universities,, I know all this may be a lot, But just try to understand that this system we are products of, This environment we all are products of is controlled from birth, It's difficult to see the truth & accept that your perception of this reality was merely an illusion, The illusionary perception of reality shaped by your environment is mere preconceived notions regurgitated as social engineering aka brainwashing,, It's difficult to break away from this matrix, This sophisticated prison system called society, Your peers will defend the illusion, Too many defend the wickedness of this system,, It's no democracy, It is a dictatorship, An Oligarchy we are not free people, America was never free, It merely changed forms of slavery,, From forced to chosen, People choose their enslavement & can't see how they are enslaved, Which created this society, It created all the depression & intolerance, The anger & loss, All the thing's we see in this society were specially designed & strategically designed to keep the population under control, Bread & circuses,, If our forefathers knew what a reality they were creating allowing these cult's to infiltrate them by extension of time us modern life, They would have rooted them out & hung them all as a warning to all, Education wouldn't be based around repetition into the JOB system, Job meaning persecution in hebrew, Hebrew being the language the luciferian love to subliminally refer,, Remove all the variables that are not possible, The evidence remaining no matter how improbable is most likely the truth, Detective 101,, I leave this message for all, Hopefully some of you realize this truth, Note the truth requires change, Changing means you cannot go back to your illusion of society, It's time to expose & oppose the wicked, If we don't knowing full well it exists, We are as to blame as the wicked committing these crimes against humanity, For it is choosing apathy, Inaction as they keep their agendas in place....
