Why is getting angry in court regarded as "contempt"?

You have people coming at you from all sides and if you get emotional, you can be cited with contempt. This never made sense to me. Judges can sentence people to death and yet people aren't allowed to lose their temper regardless of circumstances.

Does anybody here have any insight into this?

This bitch I went to college with, her dad was a judge and barrister. He sent many soldiers from both sides to prison, including my great uncle!

Re: Why is getting angry in court regarded as "contempt"?

I've felt the same way and its a condescending process too.

Its about a decorum that these so-called professionals want to keep throughout the proceedings, yet the system itself and the judge can be full of contempt themselves. They expect and anticipate respect just for being establishment rule, law, order and all founded on an ideal called justice.

The insight is that there isn't any really worth considering, unless one thinks they are above it all and are into control, power and dominance over others.

The court process could be considered a necessary evil, but the outcome is never going to please everyone and then often that comes down to the jury, who are just from everyday walks of life. They can be considered in contempt as well if they don't play the game, or attempt to get out of it.

Another one that seems silly is, "The jury will disregard," as if that phrase wipes whatever they heard from their memories.

My dad often comments on this when watching a movie that makes this statement. Its already been said, and even if not entitled to be a factor in deliberations, it can still plant a seed subconsciously to sway a verdict.

Does the judge give a warning as he does in TV and movies?

I would find it unfair if he does not and that would be bullshit if he does not have to.
