Added DiffLines:

* HangingJudge: A mild example with the judge that oversees Poe's CrimeOfSelfDefense. After Poe declares himself guilty (because his attorney told him that the judge would grant mercy if he did so because of apparent lack of evidence for his defense), the judge decides instead to declare Poe a "living weapon" because of his military training and that he should be held to "different standards" than non-military men, and gave him a 25-to-life sentence (with parole possibility after ten). The speech makes it pretty clear that the judge held prejudice against the military, and the extenuating circumstances (Poe defending his pregnant wife) didn't matter.

** A more straightforward example occurs during the shootout in the boneyard, when one of the cons has an entire plane fall onto him, and rather than move, he just looks up and screams.
