To avoid such instances where a person is
acquitted of an offence due to having a
smart lawyer using legal loopholes or
technicalities, I propose an additional final
stage in the judicial process.
Following the 'Not Guilty' verdict, both the
lawyer and his client are taken from the
and transported, ultimately by boat, to
the 'Haunted House of Injustice'.
The 'Haunted House of Injustice' is on a
nearby deserted island and was previously an
Asylum for the Criminally Insane. It was built
on an ancient indian burial ground, and
conforms to any other horror cliche you care
Once there, they are left to spend the night
alone together before the boat picks them up
the following morning.
A cheaper alternative, perhaps for less serious offences, could
involve a sleep-over at the lawyer's house.
Suddenly helping a client get away with a crime, without being
pretty sure they were innocent, would become far less
||sp. not boat but Ferry - They must pay the Ferryman with an old (1675) sixpence.
Also, on arrival, they are greeted by a very thin and tall cloaked/hooded stranger with a sythe.
I love the idea of a disused asylum FTCI, BTW
||Isn't there supposed to be a "c" in that word?
||so basically after every trial, Judge Judy gets a hack at it to determine whether it was a fair just trial or an unfair just trial ? There is such a thing as "appeals".
||I'm not fond of the idea, to be honest, "not guilty" should be the end of it, however you got there, you're there.
||I would favor this as punishment for some slight forms of "guilty" however.
||so we're looking for a "weasel index" of some sort ?
||[normzone] What? sythec?
