Lawyer: your honor, I move to submit the pistol recovered by the police last night as evidence. The serial number on the side can be tracked back to the defendant, who we have on video purchasing the weapon just a few days before the murder was committed
Judge: I’m sorry, but I can’t allow that
Lawyer: why not your honor!
Judge: well, the defense made the rules of this trial, and the rules state that no new evidence may be submitted without their approval. Sucks to be you, but you and I don’t make the rules
