I believe it may have been Blackstone that said, “When you violate the laws of a society you no longer are due the privileges and protections of that society.” I’ve always liked that. I’m sure it’s be why those who commit felonies quite sensibly lose their voting rights.

But it really doesn’t matter what kind of laws you have or how just they are; if they are not applied equally then you just have another Russia or China: nations where laws are rewritten according to the needs of the current party in power. It’s not supposed to be that way in America.
