Pastor arrested in front of courthouse for passing out flyers informing Jurors of their rights

$150,000 bond for passing out flyers informing jurors they have the right in the US to acquit even if they do not agree with the law and find it morally or ethically repugnant to a free, open and democratic society.

The  man is a Pastor.  He did not speak out against any particular case, controversy or judge, and yet he was arrested for witness and evidence tampering which is a felony.

This happened merely on the say so of one of the judges who directed the arrest.

This should not be happening in a free, open and democratic society which has the First Amendment for free speech.  It should not be happening when there is and was judicial precdent for the information given.

Support the First Amendment in the US.  Let the judicial system know this will not be tolerated in the US.  N. Korea, China and other fascist countries may enforce such tolaritarian policies, but we need to oust this type of behavior from the US.
