Perspectives of an Alien Visitor

Perspectives of An Alien Visitor
anonymous author, a contributitor to KnowYourCOURTS.com

I successfully landed my spacecraft on the planet Earth and immediately assumed the appearance of a human.  My landing placed me near a huge and wonderfully rich-looking structure adjacent some mountains, and one of the humans outside informed me that I was in Jefferson County in the State of Colorado.  The structure was called the Taj Majal and appeared to be an important symbol for the humans.  My first thought was that this must be a temple of worship or something of similar significance.

I entered the edifice and found armed guards with weapons that shoot metal projectiles capable of killing other humans.  They seemed to be guarding the inhabitants, but I easily passed through the impressive security barricade into a visitor’s area.  My curiosity about hidden areas beyond the barricade was piqued, and I visited courtrooms and offices of humans called “judges.”  These individuals wore long black robes, they never smiled, and they looked decidedly unhappy.  This wasn’t surprising since they were incarcerated behind locked doors, bars, and thick glass in confined places having no windows. I could only imagine how isolated they must have felt.  What terrible crime had they committed?  Had they injured innocent citizens, cheated, lied or broken the laws?  Whatever their crimes, it seemed that their incarceration in this place was a most terrible thing.

I came to recognize that my initial impression that this was a temple was most inaccurate since it was obviously a prison for the judges.  As I left the structure, I noticed a sign that read “Hall of Justice,” and it became clear that the free citizens of Jefferson County must have determined that “justice” required that the judges be confined in this awful way.

On returning to my spacecraft, my computer informed me that judges were once free like other humans but that over time they became arrogant and corrupt.  Perhaps the human named Jefferson for whom they named this County knows why.
