What laws must exist in the fictional world of TV and movies?
Here’s what I discovered so far:
Diplomatic Immunity Blanket Protection Act - Diplomats and foreign envoys who have been extended diplomatic immunity shall be free from any form of prosecution or criminal investigation, regardless of the seriousness of their crimes.
Murtaugh’s Law - Diplomatic Immunity can be revoked by killing said diplomat, provided that such punishment is carried out by a member of law enforcement who is not acting as a representitive of the jurisdiction he is employed in.
Bronson vs. The Street - In the absence of satisfactory judicial process, private individuals use whatever means necessary to rid their community of “unsavory” characters.
Steven Segal Environmental Protection Act - Completely destroying an oil refinery and killing its owner and staff in order to avoid a potentially environmentally dangerous situation is punishable by up to 15 minutes of self-righteous monologue.
Utah’s Law (as in Special Agent Johnny Utah from Point Break) - Any FBI agent who has developed a close relationship with a felony suspect may release him at his discretion as long as there is a reasonable belief that said suspect will likely take his own life or disappear forever. (later upheld in the case of ‘Fast vs. Furious’)
