Justice Scalia was recently up in Canada to participate in an international judicial panel on torture and terrorism. Apparently, the subject of the interrogation techniques of Jack Bauer–the fictional character from 24–came up, whereupon a Canadian jurist expressed disgust at same and Justice Scalia responded by saying:
Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer … I don’t think so …. So the question is really whether we believe in these absolutes … [a]nd ought we believe in these absolutes.
Just remember that Justice Scalia dresses like this,
And the Canadian judge dresses like this.
Who you gonna believe?
