Personal Responsibility (Justice Tonight)

The American justice system’s bedrock is accountability, enforced by citizen juries guaranteed by the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution. Every day, individuals in American courtrooms are held responsible (or not) for their actions – in criminal and civil courts. The day any one person – or group of people – are considered immune from this process is the day our system of justice dies. The Seventh Amendment means nothing if it doesn’t apply to everyone equally. There would be no good reason for society to continue to support an arbitrary system that applied to some but not all.

Here’s to equal justice for all and no sleep till we’re done.
