Judge rips off robe like Superman to fight creepy stalker in courtroom brawlJudge John McBain has had enough with a creepy repeat offender who doesn’t understand that when a woman say ‘No!’ she means it. This idiot doesn’t know how to keep his mouth shut, and the judge loses control. Forty three days in jail becomes 90 which then becomes a full year. As the young thug becomes more argumentative and resists the bailiff, the judge finally gets up, takes the robe off and handles it himself.
Some people argue he had no right to do this, but Chief Circuit Judge Thomas Wilson of Jackson County disagrees. Judge Wilson states “A judge has the power to take whatever action is necessary to maintain order in the courtroom.” Sometimes that ‘action’ happens to be physically restraining a criminal with your bare hands.
