    Do you mind - I spend my waking hours wading through old English torts in preparation for earning my daily bread in a horsehair wig, and paying obeisance to some superannuated beak in ermine lined crimson garb.

    Gotta say, those wigs are ridiculous. What is their purpose? Why weren't they left in the 18 century? Why don't lawyers and judges rebel? Why?

    You'll make a great lawyer (solicitor? barrister?)...whichever, you'll be great, and honest!

    In Canada, judges don't wear wigs anymore.

    Our Supreme Court Justices dress like Santa Claus though, apparently

    Yeah... it's a bad shot at the brand, but doubtful that this one incident was somehow a corporate decision.

    i guess the reasoning is that it's hard to be an asshole on the bench while you're dressed as Santa?

    When you're black, sometimes doing what the cops say doesn't work out too well for you either.
    Yet, even when real life examples like this happen, there are still those who will say white privilege doesn't exist.

    I feel sorry for you. Seriously.

    Now go troll somewhere else. The adults are having a discussion here.
