I thought we had lie detectors. Don't they work? If not, we should
perfect them. We use breathalyzers to tell if a suspected drunk driver is telling the truth. And without the help of the good book. With the implementation of solid working lie detectors, all trials should last approximately 30 minutes. Go through all the formalities of standing and introducing the "holier than thou" judge. Actually, with a fool proof lie detector, I could preside over any trial. It would be as simple as this...;
Me: "Michael Rafferty, you are accused of raping and killing Victoria Stafford, did you rape that little girl?"
Defendant: "No, sir! I did not!" -
Red light goes on, buzzer sounds, hot chick voice comes on "The pieceofshit defendant is lying"
Me: "Whatever dude. FRY HIM (gavel slam)...... NEXT CASE"
Defendant: "But I want a public apppeaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllll"...... voice fades as he falls to his fiery death in the "pieceofshitincinerator". I'm rolling my eyes at the ceiling shaking my head.
Me: "Bring in Ariel Castro"
In the new world, we will live by the Lie & Die rule. No lawyer, judge or jury. Just a lie detector, an incinerator and me.
No more getting off on technicalities.
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
