The film Idiocracy was more prescient than imagined. I haven't seen it but I read about it.
This wheel of justice is a real thing. I checked Channel 4/WJXT, turns out to be Jacksonville FL station searched "wheel of justice" on their site and discovered they do this once a week.
The video showing presently on their own page is better than this one but it embeds oddly here so checked out the U-tubes and the segments are posted there too, but this one is not up yet.
Believe me, we are laughingstock. I feel shame.
