You know how a few weeks ago I talked about how the way the Shadowhunter’s government and judiciary system is organized is completely fucked up. This shit right here? Is a prime example of why no one should have that much-unchecked power because as the old saying absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The Shadowhunters can talk all they want about how much better they are than us mundanes, but in the United States, one person can’t just throw a CHILD in maxim security prison full of hard offenders on a freaking whim. Whatever you think of court system, admittedly I do think it’s heavily flawed, but this shit wouldn’t happen on just ONE person’s say so. This is why there are such things like trials and judges and attorneys in most civilized countries.
Yet in the Shadowhunter society, The Clave and by extension The Inquisitor have the authority to do this to a CHILD just because the kid pissed them off. The Inquisitor just does whatever the fuck they want, commit cruel injustices against their people unchecked and yet I’m still supposed to think these assholes are better than us measly humans?
*snort* How about fucking no?!!
