That's deranged.
It's alarming, but unfortunately a by-product of the jury system, which I would not want to lose.

The jury is and should be entitled to make its mind up as it sees fit.

I don't see what can or should be done about cases like this. It's not as if there is any way of policing the internal reasoning of individual jurors.
