9. To my knowledge...

jury nullification has its roots in English Common Law.

Tangentially related:
Common law is the best law, generally. It is the result of real people wrestling with coming up with real solutions to real problems, on a case by case basis.

Modern "There's a code for that" law, on the other hand provides a rigid framework of poorly drafted laws of unintended consequences, that we have to common law our way around to get anything actually done, anyway.

Just my $0.02
