"A juror who is forced by the judge’s instructions to convict a defendant whose conduct he applauds or at the least feels is justifiable, will lose respect for the legal system. . . . A juror compelled to decide against his own judgment will rebel at the system that made him a traitor to himself."
Alan W. Scheflin

Jury Nullification: The Right to Say No, 45 S. CAL. L. REV. 168, 183 (1972).
