“It was a perfect plot to kill Batman. There was no pressure put on anyone. No one even complained until Harvey Dent started asking questions. What the prosecution is doing is a disgrace to Gotham’s criminal justice system. No one has been victimized by the criminal justice system as much as our client, The Joker, and his perfect plot. This is a witch hunt. A Russian show trial. A Kafkaesque purge. I will use the term lynching here without any awareness of what that word really means and its historical context.” More at McSweeney’s.
