Dead Man’s Trial

There is a land far, far away that is led by a Supreme Ruler who insists that all those within his realm accept the views of life that He imparts. A man named Sergei Magnitsky openly spoke about corruption in the fair land of Russia, and unfortunately uttered the names of important government officials as responsible for these crimes. It is OK in Russia to name a liberal or opponent of the government as a “criminal” but it is against the laws of the state to utter the name of a government official. It is illegal for government officials to steal. They never steal, they simply take what belongs to them.

What else could our Supreme Leader do but place this Sergei Magnitsky on trial for being a thief? Mr.Magnitsky was cross examined and refused to answer any questions. He refused to deny accusations about his criminal activities. He refused to offer any evidence to support his accusations. The judge found him guilty of being a criminal.

OH, SERGEI MANITSKY WAS MURDERED IN PRISON.  FOR SOME REASON HE DID NOT ATTEND THIS TRIAL.
