i love how pleased the DA seems to be with himself in the last panel
I think he scored a date with Laurel at some point, and is pleased with himself.
A date with a convicted felon? Wouldn’t that be… improper for a DA?
At least you know where she’s gonna be on the weekend…
Has she even been convicted yet?
Who says this occurred after Laurel took the violin? Though it will ruin the DA’s career when she is caught and convicted. Tough luck buddy.
Maybe “convicted felon” meant something in the past, but with some of the things considered felonies these days, it just doesn’t mean what it used to.
If not for the delay, apology, and the “I’m so sick of you Mexicans!” comment, he could possibly have pled self defense on the grounds that he thought Al was trying to beat him up, but it’s not gonna fly in this case.
I find it interesting that culture is a factor. If this took place in a racist environment (and Al really was a minority) I can see an attorney being able to successfully claim that, yes your average racist would react to being booped on the nose by attacking the filthy what done it.
