What I Learned from a Parking Ticket

By David Kraemer

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2001

Inspired by having to a pay a parking ticket simply because an officer claimed that his car was parked in a bus zone when it clearly was not, the author analyzes the many injustices of our justice system. He argues that common individuals (juries, law-enforcement officials) who may bring their own personal biases and prejudices into the courtroom hold a disproportionate amount of power in the justice system. He suggests that Judaism has a better justice system (though does not elaborate on this point).
