I don't suppose it will make any difference, you honour, the coup has been well executed, but there's something I'd like certain people to hear…
I am not Steve Rowland!
What does he mean.
If by this absurd declaration, the accused naively hopes to save his neck by an insanity plea, he is mistaken. We consider him to be entirely responsible for his odious actions and request the death penalty!
It is evident that my unfortunate client was deeply effected by his experiences during his courageous war service and he is suffering from, not only complete amnesia, but also paranoid schizophrenia. We request the court is lenient in this matter.
…taking into account the mental alienation thesis, this court condemns the accused to be interned indefinitely in a maximum security institution for the criminally insane!
