(TheLastPatriotNews.com) The extreme left loves the 6th Amendment to the United States Constitution — the one that guarantees criminal defendants a fair trial by jury** — as long as it is getting members of Black Lives Matter or Antifa off.
But, when folks who inhabit the right side of the political scale are acquitted of crimes, all of a sudden, a fair verdict becomes “jury nullification.”
Case in point: The recent acquittal of most of the defendants who were arrested by the FBI and charged with conspiring to kidnap and potentially harm Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
When the jury reached its verdict, extreme lefty Joy Reid of MSNBC infamy all but had a cow, as the old saying goes.
Check out what she tweeted:
Unreal…so in America in the year of our Lord 2022, you can plot to kidnap a Democratic woman governor to stage a show trial and hurt her or worse, because you don’t like COVID restrictions and walk, as long as you’re a white, right wing extremist. Holy jury nullification, Batman https://t.co/vKIWIJCSfI

Jury nullification? What proof does Reid have for that attack on the jury that sat through the trial and heard all of the evidence?

** Amendment VI — In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence. (Constitution of the United States of America, 1789)
