No discrimination in Boston

It doesn’t matter whether you’re black, white or even just kinda patchy colours all over…in Boston, you’re able to serve as a juror. Yes, species is no barrier to being involved in turning those big, heavy wheels of justice!

It makes the Scottish Government’s recent act of removing the age barrier for jury duty look positively old-fashioned: bring on the time when animals are serving! I can’t wait to see what “reasonable adaptations” would be needed to allow large farm animals in the jurors box. Although I suppose at least some animals, like horses, would already be used to being in a box…




Ta to Greville Tombs for sending me this story.
