Fact of the Day: Jackson Justice

Andrew Jackson was not exactly a man who followed the rule of law. During the War of 1812, he imposed martial law for New Orleans. When a judge demanded he give a man he arrested the right to a trial, he simply arrested the judge.

Don't know much about Andrew Jackson so I don't know if he was a good president or not, but this story reminded me of the current Philippines president Duterte....
