First, is this real? And what's the relevance of the defendant hitting on the under cover PO?

Love his reaction.

    Please. Be. Real.
  • I have high hopes.

    I've fallen for that line.
  • The lawyer looks and talks like a lawyer. The judge looks like a judge in a porno, i.e. not a real judge.

    I'm anxious to put this issue to the proof. I need to know!
  • oh its real. And its f*cking glorious. It gets better too.

    I've learned a lot from that show. For instance, if a guy is already doing life without parole, don't bring him up on additional charges. He will just bring a shank into the courtroom and stab you in the chest.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
  • To answer your question, Buffco, its not relevant that the defendant hit on the Undercover officer. But its funny, and prosecutors love to repeat what the defendant has said in a police report in open court. F bombs are pure gold.

    I once had a case where a drug dealer sought to engage an undercover in a game of chess. The Undercover sat down, played chess, bought his drugs, and left.

    So basically these are the sort of things that amuse prosecutors. What's the point if you cannot have some fun on the job?

    I got the gist from watching the lockup videos that this particular defendant was well-known for his antics and it could be that the prosecutor was hoping he would say something. Which of course he did.

    Lock up is one of those shows you have no intention of watching until you accidentally flip to it. Then your like, WHAT THE HELL?

    I really, really want to see this under cover officer now.

    That guy has been in prison his whole life, he probably is not that fussy.
