Imagine If You Will, a Jury Trial

Imagine if you will, a jury trial.

The accused stands to hear the charges. As the charges are read, one after another after another, the jury knows each horrendous crime well, for they have affected the entire community.

The charges of aiding and abetting mass murder, criminal conspiracy, and subversion of justice mount, the jury finds itself increasingly joining the chorus of shouts of indignation from the courtroom. The judge is unable to control the din.

When the charges of treason and betrayal are read, the Jury Foreman stands, saying, "Your honor, all this is well known to us, and we have a unanimous verdict!" At which point, the judge, jury, and packed courtroom march the perp out to the courthouse lawn and execute him.

Imagine crimes that horrific.
