Claims of innocence mean nothing; they serve only to prove a foolish lack of caution
— Judge Traggat, Selected Sayings, Warhammer 40000
When passing sentence, always err to the side of harshness. Remember: there is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

Innocence Proves Nothing.
— Inquisitorial Motto, Warhammer 40000
You have been tried by twelve good men and true, not of your peers but as high above you as heaven is of hell, and they have said you are guilty. Time will pass and seasons will come and go. Spring with its wavin' green grass and heaps of sweet-smellin' flowers on every hill and in every dale. Then sultry Summer, with her shimmerin' heat-waves on the baked horizon. And Fall, with her yeller harvest moon and the hills growin' brown and golden under a sinkin' sun. And finally Winter, with its bitin', whinin' wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow. But you won't be here to see any of 'em; not by a damn sight, because it's the order of this court that you be took to the nearest tree and hanged by the neck til you're dead, dead, dead, you olive-colored son of a billy goat.
— Judge Roy Bean
Well raise 'im high and string 'im up!
We've gotcha now, you're good as dead!
From the gallows to your grave
It's gonna take your breath away!
Crime they say, does not pay
And you’re the living proof
But not for long, cause you’ll be hung
By your neck

Jonathan Crane: Death or exile?*
Commissioner Gordon: I'm not willingly going on that ice, Crane.
Crane: So the choice is "death," then?
Gordon: I guess so.
Justice is swift in the Court of Miracles
I am the lawyers and judge all in one
We like to get the trial over with quickly
Because it's the sentence that's really the fun!

Old judge Jones never gave a man a break
On his hangin' tree the leaves don't shake
That man in black, what did he say?
A hundred years and one dark day.
