** It's worth noting that in "Closet", the [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer much publicised]] Dredd fetish club is not arrested for any perverse sexual practice, but for [[ImpersonatingAnOfficer Jimping]].



* How could the huge cyborg mutant sneak up to Judge Fargo to stab him?

* Which genius decided to partner Hershey up with a [[NewMeat rookie judge]]? Dredd outright states that she's only been on the streets a year herself and is inexperienced herself.

** Likely the same as almost every other crime, Iso-Cube imprisonment. Death is only for criminals found guilty of enormous crimes, like Judge Kraken and Silver being executed for their actions in Necropolis.



** The problem is that the Judge system isnt actually intended to represent Law or Justice, but to bring something resembling stability to an enormously chaotic environment. Remember, the Judges were given absolute power because the civilian authorities had failed so badly that they had basically caused the apocalypse.

** Walter's speech impediment is selective, sometimes he DOES pronounce R's correctly.

***** But if Rico's DNA is mutated, how could it have been pinged for Dredd's non-mutated DNA without deliberately tampering with evidence (which, again, is never suggested to have been done here)?

Added DiffLines:

** Space. Don't forget, Judge Dredd comics might be focused on Mega-City-One, and the rest of the Mega-Cities to a lesser extent, but they also share a universe with Strontium Dog and several other interstellar comics, depicting an almost endless array of other solar systems full of habitable planets.

*** Except that is {{Artistic License Economics}}. Crime is inherently disruptive to an capitalist economy. A black market has no regulation to ensure stability and is far too chaotic to support an economy, not to mention the constant risk of doing business. And since all transactions occur without transparency or oversight, the currency is harmed by all trade. Taxing automated businesses to pay for welfare makes at least a little sense since customers need money to buy products and support a market.

Added DiffLines:

** One story had giant mutant tapeworms that have eaten growth hormones run amok in the city. After Dredd kills them, he suggests turning them into burgers instead of simply destroying them.

** [[PoliceBrutality Seems a tad cruel]]. The ''Dredd Vs Death'' FPS would [[VideogameCrueltyPunishment set the SJS on you]] for using the incendiary round on criminals.

** Of course the Judges break their own laws to stay in power. That's one of the themes.

** Of course the Judges break their own laws to stay in power. That's one of the themes. Chief Judge Silver put it best when he told Dredd "On this one you ''write'' the law" before the Democratic March.
