This is great… Azeri police

by Nathan Hamm on 8/23/2003

This is great…
Azeri police in my homeland. Here’s the best part:

When Lewis introduced them to Cindy Schaeffer, peer court
coordinator, and explained that in some first-time offenses juveniles
are sentenced by a jury of their peers, with the possibility of having
the offense expunged from their record if sanctions are successfully
completed, they were dumbfounded.
“And Washington allows this?” they marveled.

No mention of shaking people down for bribes though. Darn.
