Put Him In Jail

Did you hear about the judge who placed an entire courtroom in jail? Well, a commission on judicial conduct has removed him from office. From the BBC:

A US judge has been removed from the bench for jailing an entire courtroom audience after none of them admitted being responsible for a ringing phone.

Judge Robert Restaino was presiding over a domestic violence case in the city of Niagara Falls in March 2005.

A commission on judicial conduct said Judge Restaino had acted “without any semblance of a lawful basis” and behaved like a “petty tyrant”.

Awesome. If you want my vote, he should be sent to jail for the total amount of time that all of these people had to serve.
