I once went to court to testify. I sat there for hours listening to petty crime stuff. No jury, just the judge. One was an assault case; the whole clan of the cave bear showed up, and at one point, some toothless old hag took the stand, and ran on for about 5 minutes. Eventually, the judge aske her if she was even present. she wasn't, so he told her get the heck off of the witness stand. Not particarly politely, either.
about a dozen people there, not a one of them wearing clean clothes, just dirtbags.
