"Prosecutors further contend, 'No legal system could long survive if it gave every individual the option of disregarding with impunity any law which by his personal standard was judged morally untenable.' But jury rights advocates contend this position is tantamount to claiming that 'the law' belongs solely to the government and not to the people who must live under it." (12/01/11)
