Looks to be “cop a plea” under the influence of “come on, cough it up”. Coughing a plea gives the impression of an unwilling admission.
And I wanted to ask the otherside, what is the ethical value of their moral teaching’s of justice in the next life, when their Heaven is just as likely to be full of contrite mass murders who have coughed a plea at the pearly gates.
