Why was he not held in contempt and allowed to think about it?

A Montana judge walked out of a court hearing after being heckled by a rowdy crowd, leaving the conservative former state legislator who instigated it all to declare he was in charge of the courtroom and proclaim the case against him dismissed.

Yeah, I don't think it actually works like that, kiddo.

I was thinking he would have had his ass handcuffed and whizzed into jail so fast his head would still be spinning around. I call shenanigans on this story.

Well, yeah. That's Montana.

The JP adjourned the case and left the room because a mob, headed by a possibly-armed defendant were pushing towards a mini-riot, leaving the cops to clear 'em out. JPs tend to be part-time judges and I'll bet this is not exactly over, just going to escalate to more serious charges.

Contempt of court, and that's just for starters. I guarantee that judges, even JPs, do not suffer shenanigans in their courtrooms lightly.

During divorce proceedings a judge once told my dad if he didn't stop complaining she would hold him in contempt of court for $50. My dad replied, "$50 isn't HALF the contempt I have for this court!"

So she upped it to $100. He said it was worth it.

I shall vote this a funny when enabled.

Sounds like he's a "freeman on the land" idiot, like that kid that got tazed.

I expect that he's going to find himself in jail pretty soon for contempt of court, and that his next hearing is going to have some SERIOUS security precautions in place.

He's about to find out how much the law DOES apply to him.

Frankly, they should just take him out back and shoot him. He's too stupid to live.

It is?

"The judge has left the room, I'm in charge now," Boniek said.

The republican is strong with this one.

You know, I try to avoid making prison rape jokes. Yes, they're usually hilarious, but I know that doesn't mean I should make them.

However, let me just throw this idea out there: someone trying this hard to get his ass thrown in jail probably cannot be prison-raped, by definition. Bringing your own personal mob to chase a judge out of her own courtroom, even a JP? Did nothing come up on Grindr that day?

Besides: rural Republican state legislator. Case closed.

/nttawwt
//well, there are a few things wrong with all this, but not, you know, that.
 
2012-11-23 11:52:03 AM  
Yeah, this guy's cuckoo for conservapuffs.

But do they seriously not check a defendant for weapons upon entering the courtroom? I thought they'd at least have a metal detector at the door or something.

Can't blame the judge for hightailing it when he thought the whackjob might be armed and have an angry mob at his disposal, though. He'll get his when the time for sentencing comes.
 
2012-11-23 11:52:16 AM  
I surprised he didn't start screaming nonsense about maritime law or something.
 
2012-11-23 11:53:25 AM  
Yes, this is the face of the Tea Party:

The proceedings further devolved when a Boniek supporter became vocal. When Budeski told the supporter he was out of order, the man replied with an expletive and said, "You're out of order."

"You're out of order"

"-NO, FARK THAT, YUR OUT OF ORDER!!@!, LAWS DONT EXIST FOR US TEA PARTY FOLK"

I'm hoping/betting the book ends up tossed at him just for that "dismissal of charges" jackassery at the end of the incident too.

I don't know; maybe back during his political career, but it sounds to me like he's gone full Sovereign Citizen nowadays. Even the Tea Partiers look down on them.

Back 30 some years ago when my family was in court to wrap up settlement on a nasty suit against AMF (Amoral Motherfarkers) by my late father's estate, the judge cautioned members of my family present against being in contempt of court. My brother smiled and replied he was trying mightily to to hold the proceedings in contempt. Some how, he got away with that, just getting a sharp glare by the judge.

Here is a corroborating source: Boniek claims court lacks legitimacy

I believe I found a video from the courtroom!

Garnish their wages. No violence required, they just don't get the money.

What if they work for themselves, or work for like-minded individuals who refuse to play along?
