Anyone who grew up in the 90’s or 00’s might have remembered a show on Cartoon Network called “The PowerPuff Girls”. I was especially a huge fan of that show in 2nd grade. But that’s another story.
Anyway, those who watched the show all know the premise. Professor Utunium mixed three ingredients (sugar, spice, and everything nice) and accidentally dropped chemical X, thus creating the PowerPuff girls, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The girls fight crime and save Townsville.
When there’s trouble, the mayor contacts the PowerPuff girls through their special telephone. The girls fight the crime and throw the villains in jail. And… without a trial.
There was never a courthouse, judge, lawyers, defense attorneys, witnesses, or any of that in “The PowerPuff Girls”. Not once have villains such as Mojo-Jojo, Princess, Him, or anyone else been tried and found innocent or guilty. They’re just immediately thrown in jail by the PowerPuff girls.
Yes, it’s a cartoon. But because people get tried before getting locked up in real life, I wonder if their history differed from ours today.
I will not go into detail as I do not discuss politics on my blog. However, I still consider this quite interesting.
