About

The phrase “Stop right there criminal scum, pay the court a fine or serve your sentence, Your stolen goods are now forfeit” has many derivatives. The common usage of these is in situations where law enforcement might be considered desirable; e.g. when users are posting borderline content. The phrase is thus used frequently on sites like LawlForKids.com. In addition, there is some evidence that the phrase is used as an interruption-type meme.

Origin

“Stop right there criminal scum, pay the court a fine or serve your sentence, Your stolen goods are now forfeit” and other similar phrases are catchphrases derived from the sound files played when a player with a bounty is apprehended by a guard in the game “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion”.
