The most important Bill in Montana this session!

Fully Informed Jury Bill  HB - 332  Most important bill of this session bar none!
Full Text Here:
 
 
This is one of the most, if not THE most important bill to be introduced this session.
Why?  Because we are always told that if we don't like what government is doing we can just "vote them out" in the next election.
How many of you believe that really works? Don't you feel mostly helpless after voting? The judges know that.
 
How many of us were NOT told that we have actually 3 votes in our system of government, and that We the People are on the TOP of the order of government under our creator?
 
What are those votes?
1. The Ballot box
2. The Grand Jury box
3. The Trial Jury box
Some might add a 4th:  The Cartridge Box
 
We must understand that to protect our rights and the rights of our fellow residents of this state and our counties we DO NOT need to elect any candidates, or pass any huge volume of laws, or spend a lot of money, or create any huge campaigns.
All we need to do is use what is already within our power. All we need to do is make sure that everyone understands the power we already have above. The jurors during prohibition understood this and refused to convict and the law was removed.
 
If you have never seen any explanation of these principles already embodied in our history and laws then you need to go to http://www.redwhiteandbluebox.com/ and get the video called "The Fully Informed Jury" by Montana's own Martin "Red" Beckman.
You can also watch this on our website in Youtube sections here:  http://www.lincolncountywatch.org/jury.html
 
Some judges and some prosecutors are going to scream bloody murder over this bill. They don't want the juries to know their power because the jurors will then not be under the power of manipulation of government agents. Think about it. Judges get paid by who?
 
Knowledge is power, and knowing the truth is the only real knowledge.  Know the truth about your right to judge the law as well as the facts in any case you are called to be a juror on. Even without this new code you have the power to do all these things, but this will make it mandatory that judges and prosecutors make sure you actually understand your rights as jurors. This is the 4th check and balance in our system of government and it always was there, but we have been hoodwinked into believing we don't have it.

After shaking the shields over the opposition to SB-114, the Sheriffs First bill, coming right up is a very supportive bill which will hand the people's judicial power back over to the people themselves, where it should have remained all these years since the founding. This is the bill to liberate the 12-person Jury with the full power to judge the law as well as the facts in a courtroom trial, and this bill can deepen Montana's claim to autonomous sovereignty. Roger Roots, attorney, is a member in leadership at the Fully Informed Jury Association. Attorney Roots has written Montana's "Fully Informed Jury" bill, House Bill - 332.


A couple of lines from that bill -

(1) The legislature recognizes that the authority for trial jurors to judge the law as well as the facts provides protection for freedom and is consistent with the historic intent for the right to jury trial and that jurors may not be prevented from, punished for, or excluded for knowing about or exercising this historic prerogative.

(2) In all jury trials, the parties have the right to argue to the jurors that a law is unconstitutional, is unconstitutional as applied, or should be nullified for any other reason. Upon request by a party, the court in any jury trial shall inform the jurors that the jurors may judge both the facts and the law in the case. Denial of the instruction is reversible error.

(3) In all criminal trials, the court shall inform the jurors that the jurors may vote their conscience to acquit an accused in spite of technical guilt. Denial of the instruction is reversible error.

HB-332 will ensure those aspects of our self-governance are protected more than ever in Montana code.


Montana's liberty leadership is gaining a fine momentum. Here is some ammo for our side in the battle for freedom. Details for the hearing Wednesday, February 02, 2011, are at bottom of article. My salute to Dr. Ed Berry of PolyMontana for the venue.
