Prosecutors don’t have thoughts, ideas or beliefs – they have positions. As in, “It is the People’s position that we don’t have to turn over that information.”
Add spice to your courtroom life by trying out these steamy People’s positions. The judge will never have to fake it again!
It is the People’s position that:
The officers’ accounts were perfectly consistent.
It is reasonably inferable that. . .
The defendant has put his own interests above those of Society.
We are not required to provide the names of the witnesses.
The evidence clearly points to the defendant.
Granting the defendant’s motion to suppress was utterly wrong-headed, frivolous and offensive to human decency.
