The fully informed jury is the biggest and most powerful law enforcement agency in the United States. It has “absolute, non-neogtiable power to ignore laws, keep people out of prison, ignore judges and prosecutors, make any jury trial come out the way they want, and make our government honest”.* My goal is to inform 1,000,000 citizens about their rights and obligations as jurors. You can help me achieve this goal.
My name is Alexander Navarro; I am a Boy Scout with Troop 13, in Queensbury, New York. I am currently working on my Eagle Project for the Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank in Boy Scouts.
A fundamental requirement of an Eagle Project is community service. JurorsRule will do this by educating people about their rights, duties, and powers as potential jurors. Such powers are not explained in the States’ Jurors’ Handbook, and are rarely explained by a judge during court. (See What Judges Don’t Tell Juries)
Another requirement of an Eagle Project is to get others to participate by delegating various activities to them. This is where you come in, and you can help with my project in two ways:
1) Answer the Juror Questionnaire and read the ABCs to Juror Rights.
It will take about 5 minutes to complete both. This part will help improve the justice system of America by making potential jurors more informed of their duties before they sit on a jury.
2) Send this site to as many friends, family, and American citizens as you know.
