From Nine to Five: Super Powers, Normal Jobs
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have super powers? Yep me too, but what would it be like if the people in our every day lives had super powers too? What if it were so mundane and ordinary that everyone on Earth had a power and they had to go on living their everyday lives like it were no big deal? What current comic book superheroes would be best suited for normal blue collar jobs? That is the question at hand and each Monday I will bring you a different job that people hold everyday and I will suggest a few different Superheroes and/ or Villains that would be best suited for those jobs. I hope you enjoy, because this weeks job is:
Circuit Court Judge
Circuit court judges preside over all aspects of felony trials, from pretrial hearings to sentencing. They oversee the jury selection process, for grand juries and regular juries, decide the admissibility of evidence, consider whether attorney objections should be sustained or overruled, and instruct jurors concerning applicable law to consider during deliberation. Each state has sentencing guidelines to which a circuit court judge must adhere. Provided they stay within the sentencing guideline parameters, circuit court judges may set sentences for as long as they deem fit.
Imagine getting into trouble and going to jail. Imagine that you did something bad enough that you were going to be arraigned and you were going in front of a Judge. Imagine your surprise as you step into the courtroom only to be face to face with Judge Dredd! No matter your offense, from Jaywalking to littering you will be sentenced to DEATH.
Were you late for work one day? Did you double park or forget to pay the meter? Well in Judge Dredd’s jurisdiction that is a class A felony, good job dude! Leave early next time!
When you decided that you didn’t need to pick up the trash that blew out of the back of your truck while driving down the road and it hit a cop car; that was assaulting an officer. Goodbye life.
That is Judge Dredd’s world now that he is the local Circuit Court Judge in your town. Good luck!
