The Criminalization of John and Jane Smith —
A Universe from the Mind of Lazlo Zalezac
The phrase 'Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness' is supposed to mean something special. It is an ideal on which the United States of America is founded. There are rights granted by the Constitution that people take for granted, but just how well protected are those rights. It seems, at least to some folks, that those rights are vanishing.
John believed in the American way: truth, honor, and a Constitutional system of justice. Then one hot day a demented biker tried to force him off the freeway and John was given a choice by the system: plead guilty, or face prison.
