"Government is not a bad word".

I couldn't make this stuff up!

"The state in a criminal case in Tennessee as represented by an assistant district attorney general did not want to be referred to as “the government.” Why? Because the prosecutor thought repeating the use of the term “the government” in pursuing the case against a burglary suspect would prejudice the case with the jury because the word was used in a “derogatory” way intended to “inflame” the jury and make the jury “dislike” the state’s attorney."

"Captain Justice, Guardian of the Realm and Leader of the Resistance"

And they say video games are NOT influencing culture!?!? I wonder if his next motion will be to be allowed to wear his cape and magic shield?

The lawyer concluded his motion: “WHEREFORE, Captain Justice, Guardian of the Realm and Leader of the Resistance, primarily asks that the Court deny the State’s motion, as lacking legal basis. Alternatively, the Citizen Accused moves for an order in limine modifying the speech code as aforementioned, and requiring any other euphemisms and feel-good terms as the Court finds appropriate.”

I thought it was from a CA court when I first read it.
