Here's a real one.
A Scout makes a mistake. He holds a controlled substance for a friend.
The friend is pretty, smart and female. (Facts not comments on society).
Female is busted and rats out Scout. Scout is called into school office
and asked if he is in possession.
The Scout Oath and Law would require the Scout to answer honestly.
However, an honest answer gets the Scout arrested for possession of a
controlled substance, a felony. The felony gets you thrown out of school
and having to deal with the criminal justice system and me, a lawyer.
Lying allows the Scout to walk.
Saying nothing allows the Scout to walk.
1. What does the Scout Do.
2. When asked what do I tell the Scout to do, post all of the above.
Additional information to stir the pot, before everyone starts thinking to
hard: Remember when you were young, filled with hormones and shy. Pretty
girl asks you to do her a favor.
If a boy has enough intelligence, he should consider entering the ministry,
unless when he goes to the university, he is given to carousing, drinking
and wenching, in which case he ought to take up the study of Law.
