The Primary Function of the independent juror is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from tyrannical abuses of power by government. – FIJA website

At the end of our show Jeff talks with Richard Tripp of Care of Poor People about how you can help the homeless during these hot days. The Lug a Jug program encourages you to clean your old milk jugs, fill them with water and freeze them. When you are going to be in an area where you know homeless people gather you can give them a jug that will provide them with clean water and cool them off as well.
