Judge Jails People Over Cellphones Ringing
I guess this judge had finally had it. I can't say that I blame him. I don't understand why people think they have to be surgically attached to their cell phones. This judge obviously agrees with me. In Niagara Falls, New York, Judge Robert Restaino apologized for jailing nearly four dozen people over a ringing mobile phone in his courtroom. He paid dearly for his decision, however, because the state commission removed him from office over it, calling his decision to lock up 46 people after no one claimed ownership of the phone "a gross deviation from the proper role of a judge." Oh, well, Judge Restaino, at least you won't have to listen to those blasted ringing cell phones anymore.
