They Disrobe Judges, Don't They?

L. Neil Smith at The Libertarian Enterprise - Neil berates Belvin Perry, for citing for contempt Mark Schmidter and Julian Heiklen, and sentencing Mr. Heiklen, without trial, to over five months in a cage, for disobeying his order forbidding handing out informed jury information in front of the Orlando federal court house.

I'd love to give my readers this clown's publicly-available phone number and office address. Perhaps they could help explain to him why he's being considered for our coveted White Wig Award for judicial behavior consistent with that of the English judges whose insane, evil, and mentally incompetent rulings helped to spark the American Revolution. But the last time we did something like that, the United States Marshals Service, no less, another completely unlawful operation on the part of a runaway super-state (see Article I, Section VIII of the United States Constitution and show me where it authorizes a federal secret police force), threatened to shut The Libertarian Enterprise down.

Instead, please allow me to introduce you to "A Juror's Creed", something I put together about a decade ago, and ask you to spread it around, as widely as you possibly can. The more of us who are aware of a jury's ancient prerogatives, the less hold tyranny has on any one of us.

"As an American juror, I promise to exercise my 1000-year-old right and duty to arrive at a verdict, not merely on the basis of the facts of a particular case, or any instructions that I may be given, but through my ability to reason, my knowledge of the Bill of Rights, and my individual conscience; when needful, I will judge the law itself."

I have no such compunction on giving out the addresses of hog feed. Especially when a quick Google search for "Belvin Perry Orlando" gives a Google Maps address and phone number, for likely his courtroom:

Honorable Belvin Perry Jr
425 North Orange Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801
(407) 836-2008
