“Woman Attacks Judge In The Courtroom”

38

July 18, 2011 by The ReadyWriter


I was shocked when I was watching CNN yesterday and all of a sudden this woman tried to jump the bench and attack the judge.

Melissa Hardwick was already agitated before she lunged for judge Jennifer Edward’s neck during a juvenile court hearing on Wednesday (July 13). Mrs. Hardwick’s ex-husband had dragged her into court for violating a previous court order. Despite the judge’s warning that she would be placed in contempt of court, Hardwick continued her ranting.

So judge Edwards sentenced Hardwick to 10 days in jail — and with a flick of her wrist, she dismissed Hardwick, telling her “Go now.” That’s when the upset mother sprang into action, leaping across the bench at her.

“I’ve worked here for 31/2 years and this is the first time anything that serious has ever happened,” said Wayne County security officer Adam Dodson, who got to Hartwick first and wrestled her to the floor.

Hardwick ended up with cuts and scratches on her face, and Dodson got a few pats on his back.

“I used the right amount of physical force to stop her actions,” he said. “We’re quite a bit prepared for next time.”

    Once these judges put those robes on and get sworn in, they think their arses are better than the others than they were just working with and litigating against.

    Those judges deserve crap like this. They take people’s lives into their hands and then act like it doesn’t matter. This is why most of them hide before they go home, have armed guards, don’t let mail go to their homes, etc. because of the way they treat people. You don’t dismiss people and act like the way they feel or have to say don’t matter.

        Well we all know every action has consequences right? Would I have done that? Prolly not. But then again we have no idea the WHOLE story involved or what pressures this woman was under. Not EXCUSING her behavior, but who HASN’T been that angry?? I think most ppl are just fed up with ppl treating other ppl like they are beneath them. Esp judges in this case. Anything can be said, it’s all in the manner with which it was presented..
