Peers

Before a burglary trial, the judge explained to the defendant, "You can let me try your case, or you can choose to have a jury of your peers."

The man thought for a moment. "What are peers?" he asked. "They are people just like you, your equals." "Forget it," retorted the defendant. "I don't want to be tried by a bunch of thieves."
