On Thursday, April 28th Emberlea and I returned to the courthouses in Tampa to distribute Fully Informed Jury Information, to educate the people on their right to judge the facts of a case and also to judge the law.
The sky was clear and it was hot and humid.
As always we started at the Federal courthouse at 801 N. Florida Avenue Tampa, Florida. The Federal courthouse is always quiet, there are not many people going in or out, and those that are, are mainly attorneys. After sticking around for thirty minutes we moved on to the Hillsborough County Courthouse at 800 E. Twiggs Street, Tampa, Florida. Normally there is a big audience at the county courthouse, but todays numbers seemed to be down. As always we took an early lunch, then headed into town to Lykes Gaslike Park to catch people on their lunch break. After an hour of handing out brochures at the park, we headed back to the courthouse, passing out brochures to every passerby.
Back at the county courthouse we continued to pass out brochures and have conversations with people about jury nullification.
Today we passed out approximately 640 brochures.
