I believe the prosecutors who charged this man are emboldened by the proscription against one juror informing another juror about Nullification. But for them to project this already repressive ruling onto communication between ordinary citizens amounts to the kind of tyranny that helped to provoke the American Revolution.
Jury Nullification is the ultimate judicial power. It exists as the facility by which the jury becomes the judge and the judge is reduced to referee status. It is a critical component of the criminal law dating back to the Magna Carta and it protects the common citizen from oppression by government and/or aristocracy.
