I just ran across this tidbit from Wikipedia:
In a legal conference in Ottawa, Canada, for example, US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia took offense at a Canadian judge’s remark that his nation did not consider what Jack Bauer would do when setting policy. “Scalia shot back: “Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles…. He saved hundreds of thousands of lives… Are you going to convict Jack Bauer? Say that criminal law is against him? ‘You have the right to a jury trial?’ Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer? I do not think so.”
Jack Bauer – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scalia: You make me sick.
