Oh, I'm not pleading my innocence. Just saying that I am not guilty. As a smart servant of the Emperor, you should obviously understand the difference.

I'm openly a Chaos supporter, so by Imperial logic I'm somehow not a heretic since I technically never plead my innocence. By the way, DIE, LOYALIST! *BLAM*
The American Empire is a socially progressive and strongly anti-nationalist absolute monarchy ruled by the heirs of Emperor Norton.

This nation doesn't reflect my political views on many issues, especially monarchism and foreign policy. I'm an ordinary social democrat in real life.

Just because you're right doesn't mean you are allowed to do so, heretic! ... Now, come along with me. Get into the handcuffs without resisting.

In the first panel the son (named Marcus) looks at this poster and announces that he wants to kill traitors and heretics like the movie Arbites in the poster, to which the father responds that that might not be a good idea.

In the second panel the father is rightly exposed as a heretic but tries to plead with his son. Fortunately, an arbites is on hand to congratulate the young man Marcus for his service to the throne and offers Marcus to come and watch the traitor scum burn.

Although there is the spice extra bonus of such heresy actually being an existential threat to human life...

The Imperium's paranoia is horrifying, and the Inquisition should stop immediately. This is totally not because I am actually the threat within, and out to get the Imperium.

I think they realized that putting it consoles was a good idea (less likely to suffer performance issues than PCs) and since they had reached their good idea limit by having fantastic multiplayer they then decided to shelf the game. Games Workshop only allows 1 good idea per modern 40k games.
