Criminal Justice

by michaelcahill

"Has the jury reached a verdict?"
"We have, your honor. We find Norman Barnes, not-guilty of murder."
Norman Barnes walked over to Linda and Frank Farnsworth, Cathy's parents. "Well, I got away with it. Money talks, Frankie."
Frank worked with plastics making an honest living. His acrylic gun was fully functional and easily passed the scanner.

It spoke for justice.
