Is jury nullification abused or a constitutional right?

It seems to me the prohibition on jury nullification is to not encourage its abuse and that jurors are supposed to decide based on the the facts of the case and the applicable law

But that brings about another concern. What happens if the facts aren’t as they seem. What happens when an eye witness is mistaken about how the suspect(s) looked or what happens if physical evidence is distorted such as the over-hyping of its accuracy

I’ve sat on at least 10 juries over the years. IMHO jury nullification is more of a matter of when there is a conflict between what the law says, and what is right. The two don’t always align.
