Circular Arguments are Valid Because They are So Simple

I recorded this today 7/19. It’s for a parking ticket in Salt Lake City. Even though I think I mis-stepped in several parts, this was good practice for me as I prepare for my bench trial in Beaver in August (speeding ticket). Cutting my teeth, as it were. The are several shameworthy parts to this, including the admission by two hearing officers that the only proof of jurisdiction they have is the law itself (and that it’s a “circular argument because its so simple”). *facepalm*
