'Hunger Games' mock trial convicts tyrannical president
The Broward State Attorney’s Office on Thursday presented a mock trial with a “Hunger Games” theme for kids who accompanied their parents on “Take Your Child to Work” day. Prosecutor Tim Donnelly, head of the public corruption unit, scripted the courtroom play.
"We just want to expose them to [the system]," Donnelly said. "We’re not going to debate philosophy with them; we just want them to have fun and hopefully they retain something."
A guilty verdict, Snow’s defense attorney, Donnelly, argued would not put an end to the Hunger Games.
"All you’re going to be doing is punishing an old man for following the law," he said before falling to his knees and begging, "Please don’t find him guilty."
The guilty chant, accompanied by clapping, grew louder, louder, louder.
Snow’s punishment: 5,000 hours of community service, wash the judge’s car and drive her to her hair appointment.
