Intolerable Acts Part 2

Phineas Pollyphus, Political Historian

The Administration of Justice Act was another one of the Intolerable Acts passed by Great Britain.  This act deals with courts and justice.  It stated that trials would not be taken care of locally.  Instead the Governor could send the trials to Great Britain or other British Colonies to be seen in front of a British judge and jury.  Can you imagine what effect that had on justice?  Colonists could count on any decision to be pro-British!  Any British official who acted out against the colonists could be saved by a British court decision.

Are you seeing anything in these Intolerable Acts?  Keep in mind the liberties that the United States hold very high and you will see how they combat governing like the Intolerable Acts.
