U.S. Supreme Court Quote

“[The] purpose of a jury is to . . . make available the common sense judgment of the community as a hedge against the overzealous or mistaken prosecutor and in preference to the professional or perhaps over conditioned or biased response of a judge.”

~ U.S. Supreme Court

Taylor v. Louisiana, 419 U.S. 522, 530 (1975)
