Cecil the Lion
Would the United Nations have the nerve to bring Walter Palmer to justice for his murder of Cecil the Lion? The answer, as we all know, is ... No, because it would upset the established elite (see brave Harry Battenberg below, engaging in his favorite pastime).
Walter Palmer does not appear in court in Zimbabwe and instead decides to do what the newspapers eloquently term "a runner". Yet an order is not issued for his arrest! So, from this we learn that, should we ever be summoned to court, we need only run off and the courts won't mind in the least! End of case! Try it! You'll get away with it! Walter Palmer has! Free to kill again! Evidently the law and justice rarely combine.

Update: More than 225,000 people have signed a petition to the White House to extradite Walter Palmer to face justice in Zimbabwe.
