The next issue begins at the funeral of Holly Shancoe, the wife of a policeman who the Joker's talked into committing suicide. Where Detective Shancoe's best friend is talking to Lt. Jim Gordon, where the friend reveals that Shancoe has fallen off the wagon and is back on the booze. They show frustration that they had to let the Joker have his phonecall, due to it being the Joker's right.

Later, the Joker is being transported to the courthouse, when he steals a pen from one of the guards, stabs him in the jugular and somehow manages to hijack the prisoner van (the other guy is a rookie that the Joker ties up). Mr J then starts driving through the city trying to run over folk, but the timely intervention of Batman landing on the van and using his cables to launch people out of the way of the truck prevent the Joker from running over anyone.

The other guard IS killed though, when he ended up being thrown through the windscreen when the Joker to a violent stop in front of the courthouse he was due to appear at anyway, right in front of a stunned crowd of journalists in a pre-trial interview with Harvey Dent.

Now for the actual trial. It begins with the Joker entering his plea,

In my Criminal Minds marathon, a man almost exactly like the Joker got the chair. That was so incredibly satisfying.

One day, people will just make the smart choice without the contrived reasoning that still keeps him alive. And by people, I mean not Batman. People who will just go up there, kill him, and be done with it.

Well people do try fairly frequently. They usually die horribly, and have been known to aid the Joker in someway in the process, setting him free/playing into one of his plans.

The weird thing is that standard protocol for the Joker doesn't involve locking him down like he's as dangerous as Doomsday whenever he's in Arkham. Letting him be able to *talk* is dangerous, let alone allowing him to be able to move any of his extremities. Seeing things like this, as his starting point makes their containment procedures seem even more lax than normal.

They should send the Joker to Discworld. He wouldn't stand a chance.

As long as he stays away from Vimes or any of the Watch really. He'd probably have a good grasp of narrivatum and be able to do quite well for himself.

Joker staying out of the way of the Watch forever? Somehow I doubt that. Plus he'd probably piss off both the Assassin's Guild AND the Fool's Guild at some point and Guilds don't put up with much.

All he really needs to do is get out Ankh Morpork.

I second this notion! Mister Sam Vimes does not suffer homicidal fools of any race, creed, or species, wherever they threaten the innocent. I mean, this is the man who in Night Watch went back in time to kick Carcer Dun's ass. Oh no, my chap, you do not escape so easily!
