Re: Equal Protection Under the Law.
I don't know how you arrive this conclusion. Equal protection boils down to applying the law consistently, regardless of how someone is "situated". The whole point is to reinforce the notion of blind justice and avoid subjective governance where everyone gets a different deal depending on who they are or how they are "situated".
