Mockery, Delusion, and A Snare

If it is possible that such a practice as that which has taken place in the present instance should be allowed to pass without a remedy, trial by jury itself, instead of being a security to persons who are accused, will be a delusion, a mockery, and a snare.
Lord Denman, C. J.—XI. Clarke and Finnelly, 351. O’Connell v. The Queen.
