This is a video of a judge in Monticello, Kentucky, being attacked by a woman. I am not posting it for cheap titillation, but rather to make a serious point, and one that I've made before. In the video the woman is almost instantly restrained by three burly policemen/security guards, and the judge appears to be (physically) unharmed. In most family courts in this country there is very little security, certainly not in the courtroom itself. How long would it take for someone attacking one of our judges or magistrates to be restrained?
