The city uses a three strike system to deal with thieves. The first time they're caught stealing an X is tattooed into the skin between their fingers. The second time a second X is added. The third time they are brought before the court for judgment. The punishment for three offenses is usually hard labor. Sentencing occurs on Judging Day in Hajra. On Judging Day, civilians come to testify against criminals, and a judge will here their side of the story and then sentence based on that. There is no difference in sentencing between adults and children, and children as young (and perhaps even younger) than ten will receive the same sentence that an adult can get, even for a very minor offense such as thievery.
Hajra seems to allow women autonomy, as seen in the female judge who sentenced the Lightnings, and was about to sentence Briar Moss. This is quite different from Chammur, another Sotaten city located in the far east, as Briar thinks it's notable when Kemit doen Polumri employs a female scribe.
Only one district is known:
Twice between 1029 and 1035 KF a catching sickness befell the city, causing the angry mob of people who were panicking to start a riot. One time the mob even destroyed its own district out of fear of the sickness. The last epidemic Briar had witnessed in Hajra was cholera, the "dung disease".
While playing with some friends in the docks Briar once witnessed three ships coming into the harbor which had been attacked by pirates using battlefire, causing great damage to them. One of the ships still burned when it came in and sank in the harbor mouth, the other two were full of dead and wounded.
