  • A day in a Tennessee courtroom......

    I swear....every time I show up for General Sessions, I feel like I'm at an audition for the Jerry Springer Show. I don't see how our judge can keep a straight face...

    This time, I'll just stick to what people WEAR to court in my county(these people actually WENT BEFORE the judge today):

    Honorable Mention: A camoflaged T-shirt that looked like it had been shredded by 2 cats in heat....

    Second Runner Up: A woman with a pair of SHORT SHORTS on....SO SHORT they kept riding up the crack of her ***...and she kept digging them out...

    First Runner Up: A pair of Levi's jeans with the whole seat ripped out...

    1st Place: A T-shirt worn by a witness, bearing the Confederate flag on the back, saying BAD ***'s a Southern Thang!

    They won't let you wear shorts here. It really ticks me off too. In my county you can count on getting jury duty at least once a year. I always get it in the summer. Summer work uniform is shorts. They aren't short-short though I have to change clothes before reporting for jury duty. While I'm griping, why is that every thing is scheduled for the convenience of the attorneys? They are PAID to be there. Nobody gives a rat's butt about what's convenient for the people who are giving their time for just lunch money and mileage.

      In my state's defense, the people who dress nicer probably wouldn't be going to court that often .

          This is one of my gripes, also.

          I know, I know, personal freedom and all that but, geez..... For my son's graduation people were wearing Daisy dukes, halter tops, and flip flops - and that was just the parents I wore a nice dress and heels and, with the exception of others closer to my <ahem> age, stuck out like a sore thumb. At the end of the graduation I noticed a definite correlation between the graduates who wore crap clothes and their families. I guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree.

            I had a guy that I arrested for DUI show up for trial wearing a Miller Light shirt. His lawyer quickly arranged a plea agreement.

              I have seen numerous times where the defendant being charged with a CDS charge wears a shirt or necklace with pot leaves on it.
              In God we trust, all others are run MILES and NCIC.
