About

"Had It Not Been For the Laws of This Land, I Would Have Slaughtered You" is a memorable quote said by a child character wielding a dagger in a scene from the 2014 Ghanaian film 13.30 Kaba Church. Online, the still shot of the scene, along with the closed caption of the quote in English, has been used as a reaction image, mostly in the context of shitposting.

Origin

The quote was originally featured in a trailer for the 2014 Ghanaian film 13.30 Kaba Church (shown below, left), which was uploaded to YouTube by user Elvis Amofa.[2] Since its upload on March 21st, 2014, the video has received over 13,000 views and 300 likes in about two and a half years. About two years later, on January 26th, 2016, an edited version of the trailer featuring the scene of the quote (shown below, right) was uploaded by YouTuber Jarvis Gekkouga.[1] It received over 38,000 views and 740 likes in less than a year.



Spread

On February 1st, 2016, Tumblr user dildonius[3] posted the screenshot of the quote from the movie with the caption "when someone steps on the back of your shoe" (shown below). In less than a year, Dildonius' post accrued over 12,000 notes on the microblogging platform.
