Year 2, week 51: unorthodox

“Well, it’s somewhat unorthodox, but I think it could be done.  But tell me, BabyBarista, isn’t it illegal to try and influence a judge in this way.”  It was BrainWasher voices his concerns about my proposed campaign to bring the judge’s mind around to our way of thinging.”
“I don’t think there’s a precedent against it,” I replied.
“I see.”
“And it’s not as if we’re going to be harming the judge in any way.”
“No.”
“Merely influencing him.  Through subliminal messages.”
“Well, quite.”
“Though it’s certainly not something I’d want the other side to find out about.”
“Yes, I do understand.”
“So, do you think you can do it?”
“If he sticks to the routine to and from work that you’ve described to me then I can certainly give it a go.  I’ll get started on Monday morning.”

    Pervert course justice, surely? Life imprisonment.

    Given the dreadful scepticism of our society, I think Brain Washer would be better employed keeping very quiet about his powers, but, say, betting on the stock market and influencing others to make the share price go his way.
    Did not Victor Korchnoi say that someone was putting the evil eye on him during his championship match with Karpov? Where can I get this man’s services?

    Maybe I’ve missed something but why is BB risking a lengthy spell at HMP for this case? It’s only one case, after all.
    Now if it were on a CFA I could see the logic…
