Apparently, Themyscira Doesn't Have The 5th Amendment!

Diana has stopped a wicked warlord from a little wanton misadventure...


Wait wait wait. One more time with that?

Really? The Lasso Of Truth is recognized in international court? There is no right against self-incrimination, no right not to testify against yourself? You can force people to speak "absolute truth" against their wills? The "magic" of the "gods" can overrule fundamental human rights?

I gotta say, I'm a little bit uncomfortable with that, Diana...

At least she didn't break his neck...

Even more hilarious to me is that the writers probably have no idea what the International Court even does or what the 5th Amendment says. This whole thing seems very Bendis.
