Jury nullification?

Spoons writes an excellent item against jury nullification here.

As for me, I like it that the option is available. But IMO it ranks right up there with secession as a radical thing to do. If every jury can judge laws as well as defendants, we're getting to the point where we're missing the point of passing laws in the first place, i.e. this is our social policy and it's a closed issue. And if you think our courts are backed up now...
