Challenge #04125-K107: Consequences of Ignorance

A notice is put out just outside of, and within all zoos and other animal exhibits in the greater Galactic Alliance.

"Notice to all visitors. There are safety and security barriers for a reason. Any individual, or group of individuals, attempting to bypass these barriers to interact with animals not marked safe for interaction, will be charged Time for the resultant medical intervention. These individuals will also be required to serve one standard Year of Community Service, and undergo rehabilitation along with reading and comprehension testing."

Needless to say, dereggers everywhere were aghast and screamed about discrimination, despite it being pointed out, the warning was for all visitors. -- Anon Guest

The notice was underneath a larger sign that said, Conditions of Entry in large, friendly letters. There was an attendant nearby in case of sudden onset illiteracy.

Before anyone could enter, they had to read the words out loud and state their understanding on record before entering.

If they refused, they would be politely turned away from entering. If they refused to be politely turned away, then Security would arrive to insist they turn away.

"This is fascism," cried every single Deregger, who should definitely have experience with what it looked like. "I know my rights! I paid to see these critters and I demand to see the manager! This is fraud! This is theft! I'll sue!"
