This is something that Dante, a police officer, said to his younger brother who spent time behind bars incarcerated for a crime he had absolutely no involvement with because he is pure and just and a citizen who abides all laws completely and respectfully. Oh, really? That's not how it happened? So explain to me why, exactly, anyone would say this:
Dante: Michael. Michael, you got to be careful, man. Trey is exactly the kind of weasel who will press charges against you. And with your record, you cannot afford that.
Please insert one of my thousand--that's probably understating things substantially, actually. It is probably more like million, because of this show's habit of repeating itself constantly and my own habit of obsessively criticizing the show for its own repetition--rants about the good people of Port Charles and their bizarre willingness to look at the crimes of Sonny and his nearest and dearest and write them off with, like, a commendation because people are just so damn hard on them! Someone might press charges against Michael for being violent when he should know better on just an ethical level and also an "I don't want to go back to jail" level? What a jerk that person would be! I'm so glad that Dante the police detective is willing to take a stand against such awfulness.
I'm going to go to my happy place, which is watching Kelly Sullivan and a can of whipped cream redefine the word "camp".
