National Jury Rights Day: September 5th Local Outreach

Written by: Nathan Cox

Virginia Cop Block is supporting and will be involved with Fully Informed Jury Association‘s “Jury Right’s Day” this coming Friday, September 5th.

Virginia Cop Block’s involvement will include making posts on our Facebook page concerning recent examples of Jury Nullification as well as individuals volunteering their time to hand out Jury Rights information outside of local court houses in the Richmond area.

The Fully Informed Jury Association’s National Press Release about this can be found here.

As many of you readers already know and understand, Virginia Cop Block is more than just a (decentralized) organization that aims to help hold Law Enforcement and the “Justice” System accountable; we also have a very heavy focus on educating individuals on their civil rights, which is why we created and launched the “Liberty Empowerment Project” a couple of years ago and raised money to print 10,000 “Liberty Empowerment Packets” which included information on the project itself, Virginia Cop Block, Individual Rights, Your rights when dealing with the police, Jury Rights and Helpful information when having to deal with going to court and handling various charges. Volunteers went person to person and door to door in local Richmond Communities handing out this information. The Project was a great success and we just so happen to currently be raising more funds to reprint all of that material. In addition to that project, we also leased out (short lease) two digital billboards in the RVA area that promoted the message of Police Accountability and Jury Nullification.

If you are interested in joining in on the outreach or for more information on the September 5th outreach see the Facebook Event.
There will be a major push this coming legislative session to get a Jury Nullification Bill passed, like New Hampshire recently did.
