SAT English

people who have committed felonies are not permitted to serve on juries in many states.Also, in Tennessee and Arkansas. there are laws barring atheists from serving on juries and other public service positions. Sometimes,felons are denied the right to vote.Are these restrictions reasonable or discriminatory? why/why not? Are there other categories or actions that should also bar people from participating in "being the neighbors who judge and resolve disputes" across America? Use examples from history,literature,personal experience,community service,biographies,or science.

    But if you are specific about what you don't understand about the assignment or exactly what help you need, someone might be able to assist you. Ask specific questions!
