And, of course, by "cussing," you mean "contempt of court." Which is roughly a different thing.

Even if it is contempt of court, the government basically put him in jail because he had a potty mouth, which I believe is an infringement of the first amendment. I think that's ridiculous.

Edit: this is in America, right?

No...they put him in jail for contempt of court.

Also, it's amazing how many people are so quick to cry "First Amendment!" and then not even have any idea what that amendment actually does.

Yes, and he was accused of "contempt of court" because he dropped the f-bomb, which I think is stupid, because this is in a country that boasts about freedom of speech.

Well he did cuss. So it's roughly not a different thing. It's still retarded and goes against common sense.

But he cussed in court, where there are laws against that.

Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

He was contempt of court because he dropped the f-bomb. Some people may thing he shouldn't be in contempt because of the freedom of speech act, survivalism.

They put him in jail FOR contempt of court, but why was he contempt?


EDIT: 6 months is rough. I accidentally said "shit" (after ripping my pants) in class, and I got a "hey, that's not nice."

That judge sucks at keeping order.

I just think that putting somebody in jail because of their use of a certain word is not a very mature way to handle things.

makes sense to me. the judge didnt like his disrespectful tone and there are strict rules in a courtroom. Plus he was a lawyer, he REALLY shouldve known better. its kind of like a cop claiming he didnt know murder was wrong.

also he couldve shown a little maturity. he was whining like a little b****

Did you just compare cussing to murder?

I think it was rather immature to use that word in court, but I don't think he should've been punished by law.

Did the judge repeatedly tell him to settle the hell down before the guy dropped the curse word? Because if that's the case, then I think it's justified.
However, if the judge had not priorly warned him, then maybe it's a little harsh.

only in the sense that its an obvious law and theres no way that a lawyer could claim he/she didnt know about it in the same way a cop couldnt get away with claiming to have no knowledge about murder being illegal.
