Raw milk is the way to go; but yes we love the Catch-22. The dude was convicted for a crime he was acquitted of by the same jury due to misinformation by the court system. Not really the reason we set it up in the first place.

Another example of jury tampering by the government. Keep juries ignorant and uninformed, is the way the state approaches this.

The juror's anxiety reminds me of the anxiety of the several jurors in the Branch Davidian trial all those years ago. Afterwards they were angry and sad at having been kept ignorant by the court. :(
