Today we will take a look at the American system of jurisprudence.
Our justice system, while occasionally flawed, is the best system in the History of Mankind.
In our justice system a man is innocent until proven guilty by a jury of his peers. If he is found not guilty, he’s a free man, facing no further prosecution from the government.
In Cleveland, Ohio they do things a little differently when a man is found not guilty.
They give the defendant their jury duty pay!
Is this a great country or what?
But there is a catch to this “gift” to the not guilty guy, because he seems like a nice young man, despite being charged for participating in gang-related activities.
Our juvenile delinquent has to get a GED ASAP.
This is a fine idea.
Except it is a fucking stoopid idea.
Why is it stoopid?
