Mr District Attorney and the Intimidated Jury, Scene 10
No way is that cop gonna’ talk!
In our last episode, the District Attorney’s chat with Mr Butler alerted Butler that he needed to do something fast or he and Stanley would be caught. The policeman was alive and recovering from a coma after getting shot by Stanley. If he ever identified Stanley, Stanley would have to stand trial again. The DA had already connected him with Stanley through Taylor. It was getting quite unnerving for Butler, but he knew exactly how to manage this situation. This was a job for Stanley!
Thieves fall out
Stanley’s orders are to shut the cop up, but how? Stanley only knows one way to deal with any problem. But before he can carry out his plan, Harrington jumps him and handcuffs him. Stanley wonders what went wrong. How did the cop and the DA know he was coming to the hospital? He suspects Butler set him up and plans his revenge. As far as he was concerned, he and Butler had had a falling out.
You can’t pin it all on me!
Stanley is doomed, but he decides he won’t take all of the blame. He may be going down, but he determines that he won’t go down alone. He drags Butler down with him, implicating him in the murders. It’s exactly what the DA needed as he didn’t have any physical evidence or testimony against Butler. Stanley helped him catch the big fish, the kingpin behind the jury rigging.
