The trial for the latest Cannibal Gang members we've captured is underway. So far, witness testimony is establishing their identities.

That's no small thing. There are few accessible public records. They got wiped out when civilization did. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

While we rely greatly on witness testimony at these trials, there is some evidence being viewed: The jerked meat we found in their vehicles.
11:37 AM #
Nobody who knows the source of the jerky will admit it's human flesh, if indeed that's what it is. Too bad there's no way to check its DNA.
11:40 AM #
It looks like the jerked meat isn't good evidence. Some who claim it has to be human flesh are being shouted down for jumping to conclusions
01:20 PM #
The defendants are telling their stories, trying to excuse what actions they'll admit to and avoid incriminating themselves for others.
01:23 PM #
They all admit to eating human flesh. All say something like: "It was either eat what they gave us or starve and be the next in the pot."
01:41 PM #
The defendants all claim that they were never party to any murder of a person harvested for food. If any did so, they know not to admit it.

The trial has taken an interesting turn: Someone in the gallery suggested we spare the steam mechanics because they have useful skills.

The idea of sparing the steam mechanics is causing a stir. Tempers are hot. Pete has decided to suspend the trial for the day. #zompocalypse
