I have links to videos emailed to me all the time… including the odd porno clip, which I sometimes have to review multiple times prior to rejecting it. But sometimes I receive videos that align perfectly with the current trial circus we’ve all come to know & love over the past 4 months.
So in an attempt to break the monotony of Martinez’ current inability to even find his own ass with both hands… and while Judge Pickles continues to help him find it… check out the videos below to see how a couple of other judges effortlessly handle BS, gestures from the gallery, facial expressions and arrogant courtroom assholes…
Video #1 – Direct Criminal Contempt (& Jail) in 12 Minutes Flat:
This is from Casey’s trial back in June 2011. It features a dude by the name of Matthew Bartlett, who (from the spectator gallery) briefly flipped the bird at Jeff “The Laughing Guy” Ashton during the trial. Very soon after the event, Bartlett was hauled before Judge Belvin Perry, who promptly advised him that gestures & facial expressions during court proceedings are strictly prohibited.
He then promptly ripped him a new one… sentenced him to 6 days in jail… imposed a $400 fine (plus court costs)… helped him arrange flexible payment terms for the fine… and advised him of the prevailing appeal process… prior to having him handcuffed & having his ass carted away to Orange County jail — and all within the space of 12 minutes.
Being immune to such restrictions himself, Belvin Perry’s facial expression at the 7.40 mark is truly priceless.
I guess Elvis (and the rest of the eye rolling Addams family) should be glad they’re not in Florida, or they’d be doing more jail time than actual trial watching.
Video #2 – Don’t Mess with Marilyn Milian:
In this clip from The People’s Court program (2007), this is a shining example of what happens when you start acting like an arrogant asshole in the courtroom. It features former Florida state circuit court judge Marilyn Milian… and just like Belvin Perry, she ain’t taking any bullshit either. It’d be interesting to see what would happen if she replaced Judge Pickles
