** You're Ned Stark, bosom buddies with the king (even if you two are having a disagreement right now) and your enemy accuses your wife of kidnapping his brother. Your options are a) Tell him that you know, he gets upset, and has his men attack her kingdom, or b) Tell him you ordered it, presuming that he won't do anything to you out of fear of Robert's wrath (which doesn't actually work out so well) Of course, there's option c) "Wait, she did WHAT? Why am I always the last to find out about these things?! Yes, yes, I'll write her right away and have him released, she was just a little overzealous in her beliefs that he was responsible for crippling my son" and then go speak to Robert about it.

** Even without coroners, a master would be able to tell the difference between "killed by fall" and "neck snapped". Considering Bran survived the fall in the first place, it probably wouldn't be high enough to cause injuries that would cover up the specific injuries caused by grabbing someone's neck and breaking it.

*** I don't know, I just feel that bringing it with him is rather selfish given that he has no practical need for it - even as a status symbol, it would be more valuable to Robb since it would help legitimize his authority in the eyes of the northern houses, where as in King's Landing it would just be a novelty.

**Or they could do an examination of the body, if Bran died, and found out that he didn't die from the fall.

*** Previous tropper here; Socialist or not, China is still one of the most authoritarian governments today, but my point was that all these concepts are relatives and culturally subjective, I personally think we in the West mostly achieve that middle point between personal security and freedom, but people on other parts of the world may disagree. Of course there are extremes from both sides from Orwelian places like North Korea to failed states like Somalia, but most of the cultures are in the middle, and whilst what in a place like France it seems as the natural duties of the State in the US may be seen as a violation of personal freedoms. Many countries in Latin America have a debate about the indigenous people and to what degree they should be left alone and allow them to keep their cultural practices or is right to intervine to make the country's law respected especially regarding women and children as some tribes still practice things like arranged marriage and genital mutilation. It is a very complicated issue.
