Over at Legally Blonde, our heroine finally had her interview with the Prosecutor's office.
I had previously warned her that they might ask her ethical questions and that the correct answer would always seem to be the exact opposite of what your Professional Resposibility teacher would choose. In fact, the correct answer is just "Whatever puts the most bad guys in jail for the longest time."
Anyway, it seems that the interviewer skipped the (un)ethical questions and, instead, went with a bunch of lame hypos. I suggest that we all take a turn telling her how she should have answered, if she really wanted to be a prosecutor.
Here are my suggestions:
1. The answer is "Jail." And jail for the wife for obstructing justice or perjury or something. And threaten to take away her kids if she doesn't like it. Also, are they here legally? Because, as a prosecutor, you also have a duty to make sure the immigration laws are being followed... Oh, don't worry, by now she's starting to see things my way, and she'll be happy to testify.
2. The answer is "Jail." Being old doesn't excuse you from the law. Being scared doesn't excuse you from the law. Jail, jail, jail. And some more jail.
And if any officer is ever mad at me, I'd stop by the station house with a box of donuts, and that'll solve that.
3. What do you mean "jail" isn't an acceptable answer? Ok, then it should've been, "I don't know, whatever gets the guy in jail sooner?"
Or, how about, "I'd exhume the body, and make her talk. And threaten her with jail if she refused to comply."
And then tell him, "Oh, and by the way, no officer is really dusting a car for prints, so get real, JERK!"
All kidding aside, it sounds like she held her own and, more importantly, probably came to the pretty valuable conclusion that she wouldn't want to work for those jerks anyway.
