“Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, forgive me if I seem distracted. I’ve been preoccupied of late with, uh, questions of morality. Of right and wrong. Good and evil. Sometimes the delineation between the two is a sharp line, sometimes it’s a blur. And often is like pornography: you just know when you see it. A man is dead. I don’t mean to make light of that, but theses questions…these questions are vital ones, because they tether us to each other, to humanity. Not everyone feels this way. Not everyone sees the sharp line, only the blur. A man is dead. Um…a man is dead. And my client, John Healy, took his life. This is not in dispute. It is a matter of record, of fact — and facts have no moral judgment. They marely state what is. Not what we think of them, not what we feel. They just are. What was in my client’s heart when he took Mr. Prohaszka’s life, whether he is a good man or something else entirely, is irrelevant. These questions of good and evil, as important as they are, have no place in a court of law. Only the facts matter.
