Many criminal justice professionals have argued time and time again
about jury nullification particularly when dealing with race. Some
well-known alleged jury nullification due to race was the case of OJ
Simpson and the trial of the police officers involved in the Rodney King
beating. Race-based jury nullification is believed to take place when
jurors identify and share the same racial/ethnic characteristics as the
defendant, and deliver a not-guilty verdict even if the evidence shows
the guilt.

In a 2-page paper please discuss the pros and cons of race-based jury nullification. Should it be continued? Why or why not?
