I never saw an episode of Matlock, but I did watch Mayberry RFD as a kid. Here, Sheriff Andy Taylor, played by Andy Griffith (RIP) teaches Opie that it's wrong to tape attorney client communications.

It is great to find these little snippets of our constitution at work. But it strikes me, that in terms of teaching important lessons to a child, a lot of critical information is missing. Sherriff Taylor never tells Opie why communications need to be privileged, what the values are that underpin this important rule, how they connect to due process and why Opie and his friends should care about due process as much as the "criminals" he sees Sherriff Taylor arrest. Rather than continually repeating, "No!" as the scene does, it might have been more powerful for the script to read, "No, because . . .".

I do like this clip. Remember, however, Sherrif Tayler was also the local Justice of the Peace. How does he square that ethically?
