What is Equal Protection?

We hear this a lot but what does it actually mean?

Equal Protection is a guarantee under the 14th Amendment of the Constitution that a State must treat an individual or a class of individuals the same that it treats others.

A law may be fair and just on its face, but if the law is not applied equally to everyone, this is a violation of the equal protection clause.

You have a law, but if those in charge of enforcing the law, choose to enforce it on some, and not others, that is a violation of the equal protection clause.
