What was wrong with the lawyers and judge in this case, allowing a politician-lawyer onto the jury? People who can think for themselves, are not submissive to authority, and do not accept the rulings of a government bureaucrat do not often make it onto a jury. Jury nullification is one of the last remnants of "we, the people." A nullifying jury is the place where the people can hold government and business accountable. Jurors that use their own common sense are anathema in the present jury system.
