What would Harry Rex do?

The defense enters a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, Your Honor.

Do with me as you will.

If you win this case, justice will prevail, and if you lose, justice will also prevail. Now that is a strange case.

Your Honor, even Mr. Brigance’s meager legal experience should have taught him two things; number one, I have not been elected governor…yet. And number two, he is required to request bail; the state opposes any such request.

Ask if he thinks I should go to jail.

Looking forward to it.

You turn him loose!

Well in the future why don’t we just wait until he makes the request?

Looney? Dwayne? I made Ozzie bring me. Shit, Dwayne. We knowed each other since childhood. It’s my fault. No matter what gets said in court. I knew what I was doing, and I sure didn’t intend to hurt you, but just them two boys. I know it don’t mean much now, but I’m sorry.

How do you wish to plead?

Thank you Your Honor. Your Honor we would like to request bail.

How about the other?

America is a war and you are on the other side. How’s a black man ever going to get a fair trial with the enemy on the bench and in the jury box?. My life in white hands? You Jake, that’s how. You are my secret weapon because you are one of the bad guys. You don’t mean to be but you are. It’s how you was raised. Nigger, negro, black, African-american, no matter how you see me, you see me different, you see me like that jury sees me, you are them. Now throw out your points of law Jake. If you was on that jury, what would it take to convince you to set me free? That’s how you save my ass. That’s how you save us both.

What do you mean by that?

But Your Honor, we have not yet asked for bail. Now Governor Buckley cannot oppose a request until one is made. He should have learned that in law school.

I can’t be you, Lucian.

Do you want me to stay?

Your Honor, I belive Deputy Looney has earned the right to speak here today.

Will you help an old lady to her car?

Objection, your Honor! The witness’s opinion on this matter is irrelevant.

There’s nothing you can say. I know you didn’t want any of this to happen, but it happened all the same. You wagered all our lives on this. You just went ahead and did what you felt you had to do, no matter what the cost. Some folks think that’s brave. Not me, Jake. Now, you may win, but I think we’ve all lost here.

Lucien, I thought you were dead.

Freddie Lee Cobb! We got something to talk about. Hastings, you belong over there with them.

How much you got?
