    Rodney says he’s guilty of treason, not accused, so presumably he’s had a trial already.
    (Not saying it was fair, but he had one.)

    No sweat. He’s the King. He ISSUES the licences [upon payment of a suitable fee, of course].

    I think the prisoner may have issues with his license, too.

    What’s the relation between “fair trial” and the Kingdom of Id?

    Another judge in the 1800’s took further liberty in the sentence (or maybe it’s just an old story):
    “I hereby direct the sherrif of this county to remove you from this courtroom forthwith, and to transport you to the gallows, where before sundown this day you are to be hanged by the neck until dead; your body left to be picked at by the crows, until the Sherrif directs it to be cut down, drug to a shallow grave in unhallowed ground, and burried face down in the dirt.”

    death sentence by Judge Roy Bean

    Jose Manuel Miguel Gonzales, in a few short weeks it will be spring. The snows of winter will flow away, the ice will vanish, the air will become soft and balmy. The annual miracle of the years will awaken and come to pass.
    But you will not be there.
    The rivulet will run its soaring course to the sea. The timid desert flowers will put forth their tender shoots. The glorious valleys in this imperial domain will blossom as the rose.
    Still you will not be there.
    From every treetop, some wildwood songster will carol his mating song. Butterflies will sport in the sunshine. The gentle breeze will tease the tassels of the wild grasses and all nature will be glad.
    But you will not be there to enjoy it.
    Because I command the sheriff of the county to lead you away to some remote spot, swing you by the neck from a knotting bough of some sturdy oak and let you hang until dead.
    And then Jose Manuel Miguel Gonzales, I further command that such officer retire quickly from you

    @Me3000

    neither love nor greed
    has led me to my hanging
    The Fink demands it.
