I'm surprised to see OT in such unison. Also surprised to see so many fail to grasp the point. The sentence/fine/whatever have you (for all you fvckers into semantics) for the crime should be the same regardless of your respect shown towards the judge, to an extent (you shouldn't threaten the judge or anything else illegal). For a judge to change a punishment after it is given (basing that change on a snide remark) is equally petty and unprofessional, if the judge was so sure the initial judgement was proper, changing it undermines the validity of the initial decision in my opinion. But I'm not surprised to see people accept the world we're presented and not even question whether or not it is right. [spoiler] Awaiting personal attacks and other comments befitting of an unintelligent person. Surprise me and post something intelligent for once OT...I know you have it in you. [/spoiler]

"The sentence/fine/whatever have you (for all you fvckers into semantics) for the crime should be the same regardless of your respect shown towards the judge" In the case of the contempt here the disrespect toward the court was the crime. You can't compare the 30 day sentence she got to the sentence she was lookng at before the disrespect because NO SENTENCE EXISTED. " For a judge to change a punishment after it is given (basing that change on a snide remark) is equally petty and unprofessional" He did no such thing.

To be honest, the fact that so many people in this thread as well as the other court thread are debating why we should be respectful is just a sign that some of your parents did a poor job raising you. I was raised to give respect to my elders, authority figures, and pretty much everybody else that isn't a piece of crap. Kids today think that you have to go out of their way to earn their respect and until you do so they can talk to you however they want to and if you complain you have thin skin.

Why are you needlessly attacking OT by calling them unintelligent. Makes your point about personal attacks seem hypocritical.

I'm incredibly respectful to most people that are typically given respect. My professors are treated with the most respect and the rest trickles down from there. Though I don't believe any specific profession should be given respect without question. What if that authority figure or elder is a piece of crap themselves? @Dave-someone who would provide personal attack over a real rebuttal is someone I would deem likely to be unintelligent. That does in no way mean all of OT is unintelligent...there are many people on this board I consider very intelligent, more so than myself.

The court, as a public instrument without any sort of enforcement tools at its disposal, relies heavily on the awe and respect it generates with the public as a venue. Maintaining the appearance of respectability, and not letting its status erode to that of (say) public schools- with an expectation to accept a degree of mischievous behaviour, is crucial to its function and efficacy. k?

why you have to be respectful in court? The only respect I think should be upheld is the way you treat each other, in simple words... talking nice to each other. Imo, being forced to wear certain clothes, standing up when a judge enters the room, or little simple silly stuff like not removing a hat is just another form of abusive authority. It's arrogant, brainwashing, and causes people to feel disempowered because they are force to comply over stupid rules that really have no effect on the case at hand, its just silly and a hit on your rights. If you judge a book by its cover then you shouldn't be in a position to be judging anyone at all. but hey, they do say justice is blind...go figure

The amount of typos you use makes me think you're not that old.

Ok, when you grow up you'll learn that there's certain rules you must follow in the courtroom, when you fail to follow those rules you end up in something we call "contempt of court" which has nothing to do with whatever you're being seen for.

Punishments should be decided on what and how bad the crime was not on how someone acts in court.
The fact the judge punished the girl for how she acts made it clear hes not fit to be judge anymore.

They should always be neutral even if the person in the stands is a total douche.

Do you think there is some statute somewhere dictating the exact sum of bail that needs to be set for every set of charges and every set of personal circumstances?

what is the 'law void of emotions?'

 

Do you think there is some statute somewhere dictating the exact sum of bail that needs to be set for every set of charges and every set of personal circumstances?

I think your missing the point.

What is the point, then? The law has different functions to play in societal order. punishment or retribution is not the only function for criminal law. You could easily argue it isn't even the pivotal one. Important functions of criminal law are maintaining public order and insuring the efficacy of the judicial process. Maintaining public respect for the court is crucial, then, for executing justice. no emotion or nuffin

I wonder why you have to dress up to go to court,I should wear whatever the hell I want Bucked20
You can dress as you want as long as you're not disruptive; like wearing a clown suit. They're not going to tell a man who makes 10k a year to go buy a 1k suit.
