Educating Jurors a Criminal Offense in Michigan
Many courts in the United States are corrupt and regularly abuse the rights of citizens. Courts in Michigan are among the worst, as seen by a recent case in which District Judge Kimberly Booher ordered Keith Wood to serve eight weekends in jail, 120 hours of community service, six months of probation and pay fines for exercising his Constitutional right to hand out flyers. Mecosta County Assistant Prosecutor Nathan Hull asked the judge to sentence Keith Wood to 45 days in jail.
Judge Booher denied the defense's motion to stay Wood's sentence pending appeal and sent him straight to jail. Keith will file an appeal to the Mecosta County Circuit Court and the Michigan Court of Appeals if necessary.
Keith was initially charged with felony jury tampering, but the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor so that he couldn't have a jury trial. A jury educated in their rights and responsibilities would have certainly found him not guilty since he was certainly not guilty of jury tampering.
Keith had not discussed any cases with anyone nor was the flyer targeted towards any specific court case. They flyer only contained information on all jurors' rights and obligations and was being made available away from the courthouse on a public sidewalk on a day with no jurors seated.
One of the reason's that America's courts aren't better is because jurors aren't informed of their actual rights and obligations and are misled by judges and prosecutors and coerced into wrongful convictions.
The injustice system in America doesn't want jurors to be informed because it means less certain convictions, fewer bribes and fewer innocent people in prison.
Perhaps it is time for the people of Michigan to review Judge Kimberly Booher's other cases and put her on trial for violation of the U.S. Constitution, false imprisonment, kidnapping, racketeering, etc. — before a fully informed jury of her peers.
