IRS Defeated by Hung Jury Against Tax Resister...
(by Sally Oh, Activist Post) -- This morning, the jury in Doreen Hendrickson’s trial returned to the courthouse and deliberated all day. At around 5pm, they finally emerged and presented their verdict: hung jury. Hung by ONE! What a delightful victory!!!
One juror stood up to the others, stood up to the IRS (no small undertaking) and to the judiciary — who was clearly making decisions on the side of the IRS.
Judge Roberts admitted all the IRS’ evidence and almost none of the defendant’s. Her instructions to the jury were unconstitutional at best, criminal at worst. She should be removed from the bench and disbarred.
And, yes, I’m saying the other jurors weren’t principled. Unless supporting thuggery is principled? Suborning perjury is principled? Obeying an IRS demand even if it is unlawful and unconstitutional is principled? Being ignorant of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and jury nullification is principled?
I think not. As our masters are fond of telling us, being ignorant of the law is no defense. That blade cuts both ways.
Let those other jurors go home to Dancing with the Stars. Maybe one day, they will wake up. I’m grateful for the lone juror: thank you for being the conscience of the people.
