COURT IN THE ACT [ Partido Dooey ]
On MOnday his prison clothes were burgundy [ see previous post], today the media proffer orange - could be a rainbow prison with a variety of apparel in exciting and vivid pigments.
On Monday I erroneously wrote that photos from court were not disseminated to the public but was kindly corrected by Loren Coleman who pointed out that there is a TV prog called Court TV that does this regularly.
Had Loren not pointed that out todays headline would not seem so coincidental.
COLORADO SHOOTINGS: JUDGE BANS FILMING IN COURT
"Judge William Sylvester has denied a request by Denver-area media for expanded coverage on 30 July.
The suspect's lawyers had objected to the media's request.
His first court appearance on Monday was filmed, despite the defence team's objections.
He appeared dazed as he sat in court in a burgundy jail suit with dyed orange hair, prompting media speculation about his mental state.
According to a report on ABC News, the suspect has been forced to wear a face guard because he kept spitting at prison officers."
I added a few more lines of the article for their usual journo-glibness.
'...prompting media speculation about his mental state.' If you booby-trap your house and then tell the police for whom the trap was laid about it, all the time and expense of setting the traps up + the mission, then I reckon mental state is a bit awry.
But I am also picking up that 'mental-state' theme and thus accepting to some extent that Mr. Holmes was even involved, or if he was, then not by consent.
'....spitting at prison officers' - looks a bit dazed in court, guess behind the scenes he changes, metamorphs. Jared Loughner also behaved 'badly' -
The suspect in a mass shooting that killed Arizona's chief federal district judge and five others has thrown chairs at the wall and spit at one of his lawyers while in custody, according to a court filing by his defense lawyers.'
No one likes a spitter.
I assume its a lie but 'face mask' reminds one of -
