Juries have also refused to convict due to the perceived injustice of a law in general, or the perceived injustice of the way the law is applied in particular cases. There have also been cases where the juries have refused to convict due to their own prejudices such as the race of one of the parties in the case.
I believe it is everyones responsibility to educate people about this and have them not only think what's fair to the defendant but also the long term cost to the tax payers.
Word of warning; if you decide to go outside of the court house to handout pamflets you maybe prosecuted for jury tampering.
