United States of Cardassia
In cases like this, the US "Justice" System reminds me a lot of the Cardassian system.
"DUKAT: How barbaric. On Cardassia, the verdict is always known before the trial begins. And it's always the same.
SISKO: In that case, why bother with a trial at all?
DUKAT: Because the people demand it. They enjoy watching justice triumph over evil every time. They find it comforting."
