Picked it up today from bestbuy. Just got done watching it. Kind of sucks the way the movie plays out and ends. But anyways, one line that caught my attention was when Joe gives his brother, Bobby, the gun and says...

"It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by six"

Anyone know what this means? I switched over to the commentary audio on that scene and it says that a cop once said it and was very poetic, so he put it in the movie. But whats the meaning behind it? Anyone have any ideas.

The difference is life.
Being judged by 12 means a jury. That also means you can be found NOT GUILTY
Being carried by 6 means you were executed by lethal injection or the chair. That is your coffin being carried by pallbearers.
