We The People Want Judges… on Motorcycles
We The People is the petition site launched by the White House where anyone can create a petition, really on any subject. The topics vary, but one in particular made it’s way around various comic blogs yesterday. Started by Sean M, a petition was launched on November 13 to “dissolve the current legal system and replace it with a single Hall of Justice, run by Judges; motorcycle-riding law officers who act as police, judge, jury, and executioner.” Yes, that’s right, so far 102 (as of this writing) have petitioned the White House to create real life Judge Dredds.
What’s really entertaining is that if this petition reaches 25,000 signatures, the White House has to respond, as per their own rules for the system. The petition hasn’t crossed the first threshold yet, at 150 signatures it shows up in searches. We’ll see if the petition gets all the way, and if it does, what the response might be.
