Stories of the Stupid and the Oblivious by Ibn Al-Jawzee chapter 12

Said Ibn Khalaf: Two Men had a quarrel and they went to their community leader.  The community leader could not figure out who among these two individuals was the victim of the other individual’s transgression.  So he beat both of them and said “I thank Allah that the oppressor amongst you could not trick me!”
